Episode 2: Why is it so hard for some black folk to say I love you?
"It's not hard for a black man of my caliber to say I love you."
But is it?
Many black people say they didn't hear the words I love you much when growing up, including both Leila and Hana. In Episode 2 we examine the reasons why we don't hear I love you, what it means, and whether it's changing today. We talk to inmates at San Quentin state prison, a professor who studies black male emotional expression, and Stooptalk with Al Letson about I love you in his home.
