Best of 2015: MSNBC SHIFT videos

MSNBC’s own SHIFT shows had some pretty great segments in its first year, including actress and activist America Ferrera talking to Maria Teresa Kumar about speaking out on the lack of diversity in the entertainment industry to So POPular!’s Janet Mock, who is herself a native Hawaiian or Kanaka Maoli, talking about the new film “Aloha.” Catch-up on the best of MSNBC SHIFT with the clips below:

NBC News contributor Raul Reyes, Amber Payne from NBC BLK, Sandra Lilley from NBC Latino and Traci Lee from NBC Asian America talk about the latest petition to remove host Raven Simoné from the daytime show The View over her controversial comments about race and the Spring Valley school incident.

So POPular!’s Janet Mock, who is herself a native Hawaiian or Kanaka Maoli, talks about the new film “Aloha,” that word’s true meaning, and Hollywood’s continued appropriation of Hawaii and the culture of its native people.

Former “Daily Show” host Jon Stewart rallied on Capitol Hill with New York lawmakers for the James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act, which is facing expiration this month. The Act supports the healthcare of first responders who are still suffering from the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

Actress and activist America Ferrera talks to Maria Teresa Kumar about speaking out on the lack of diversity in the entertainment industry.

 While adults call names and throw shade, So POPular! host Janet Mock shares a heart-warming video of kids giving honest and kind responses when they’re told about Caitlyn Jenner’s transition.
