Episode notes

When Sean Kealiher and his friend Micah Fletcher began confronting racists in their community, neither one could have predicted the consequences. 

In 2017, Micah would nearly lose his life when he was attacked on a Portland train as he defended two teenage girls from a racist tirade. 

Now, he reflects on how he was lauded as a hero while his friend Sean was treated as a thug for doing the same things.
