I don't have the symptoms of racism. I don't use the "n" word. I don't tell racist jokes. I don't discriminate against people. I'm sympathetic to the black movement and I push for equality.

Reggie Rivers, former running back for the Denver Broncos and current president of The Gala Team, a benefit auctioneer company, joined us on the #FlipMyFunnel podcast for the fifth in a series of conversations about race.

We talked about his experiences as a successful black man, what privilege really means, and how to make a difference.
