Actor Matthew McConaughey sat down on Emmanuel Acho’s show, “Uncomfortable Conversation with a Black Man,” to discuss ways to help end systemic racism.

McConaughey, 50, started out by asking the former Eagles linebacker how he could do better as a white man.

“You have to acknowledge that there is a problem so that you can take more ownership for the problem,” Acho, 29, told the actor, adding that the first step would be sitting down and having conversations that may be uncomfortable but are necessary.

He added, “Individually, you have to acknowledge implicit bias. You have to acknowledge that you’ll see a black man and, for whatever reason, you will view them more of a threat than you will a white man. Probably because society told you to.”
