Episode 21- Be Kind To Yourself

If someone told you they were deactivating all of their social media, staying home all the time, and talking out loud to themselves, you would question their sanity. That would make perfect sense to me! I probably would do the same thing, but this week I explain how these very things are allowing me to flourish in the clarity of my thoughts. In an effort to clear the space in my head, I decided to clear the space around me. Listen to this week's episode and stay tuned for an episode in two weeks!

Episode 20: Don't Mistreat Black Women

Malcolm X famously said the black woman is the most disrespected woman in America and that quote is the backdrop of the twentieth episode. Today we talk about black women and sexual assault. I will center the voices of three black women who are survivors and let them take a few minutes to answer one question for me: How does the black community contribute to the mistreatment of black girls and black women in light of the R. Kelly documentary? Take a listen to hear what they said. Thank you for listening!

Episode 20: Don't Mistreat Black Women

Episode 19- A Racist On Video

On today's episode I talk about the viral video of a Columbia University student that went on a long rant about how great white people are. I talk about why the video failed to shock me and how often times what is happening in the real world directly correlates to the activities on college campuses. I also take a moment to talk about the boy in the video and why I am conflicted about the huge media storm surrounding this incident.

Episode 19- A Racist On Video

Episode 18- Is This...Blackface?

The question of the day was: If white women are putting on makeup to appear darker...is that a modern form of blackface? Apparently there are women on instagram who look black but are...white. They even tricked me! Sounds wild, right? Darren and I discussed how far are people allowed to alter their look? What are the parameters of blackness? Is there a look or sound or culture to it? And how much are others allowed to partake in that culture? What is it about social media that allowed this to happen?
