“A black man and a white woman switch mics, and the result is amazing”

“Watch Eastern Michigan University students Darius Simpson and Scout Bostley speak for each other — and show us a thing or two about privilege.”

I guess we need models for support which make interrupting or replacing impossible? Or maybe where people are good at identifying where it is that the speaking-for is necessary.
