#172 No Wig Shall Hold Me Down

Queen & J. are two womanist race nerds talking liberation, politics, and pop-culture over tea. Drink up!

On this episode… Are Black British actors “taking” Black American roles or is white supremacy just doing what it do? Black trans women are being killed left and right and the media is acting like it’s their fault. And we knew Janet Jackson was blacklisted but do you know the white man’s name who did it? It’s never a conspiracy, always a whole ass white man fvcking with whole ass Black people.

This week’s hot list: J. isn’t using her feelings journal for her mental health, but you should. Listen to Marsha’s Plate podcast and stop being corny. Queen is queer ya’ll. Trans women are desired, loved, and not studying your crusty, stankin ass. There might be a serial killer in Jacksonville, Florida. Does anybody care tho? We’re getting a Harriet Tubman movie with Cynthia Erivo! Maybe we should be excited, or maybe we should just fight. If Janet Jackson can’t live, then who can? And Stop. Killing. Trans. Women.

#171 Everybody Can't Be a Doctor

On this spot of tea episode… The greatest athlete of all time makes us wonder if being a Black woman at work sucks for all of us or just most of us, Elvin stopped us from job shaming so we’ve moved on to goal shaming, and Insecure got interesting again, but then it got weird and possibly sizeist. Why it always gotta be Kelli?

This week’s hot list: Mac Miller avoided peak white rapper-hood, J.’s having a rough mental health week, Serena Williams is all of us at work as Naomi Osaka gets exoticized for being Japanese while being a whole Black woman, that #geoffreyowenschallenge got weird and classist, and is Kelli on Insecure supposed to be big fat joke on Insecure or nah?

#170 What In The Black Ass F*ck

Queen & J. are two womanist race nerds talking liberation, politics, and pop-culture over tea. Drink up!

On this episode… Does white supremacist patriarchal capitalism make you feel good about yourself? Do you affirm your existence by comparing yourself to others? Are you a dumb bitch? Find out on the next Dragon Ball Z.

This week’s hot list: We’re gonna say Calvin repeatedly, but we promise we mean Elvin. Bronx nail prices are self-care, Maxine Waters is Wakandan, we’re not for the diasporadical wars but don’t try it, passport protocol, the white woman wellness racket and don’t let white men tell you what you can’t do (they don’t be knowing). Are you participating in hate speech against whole entire groups of your own people via classism and the other isms or are you just a hater or both? Let ghetto girls and all the girls live. Serena Williams is tennis leave her the f*ck alone. Nike been on their white supremacist patriarchal capitalism. Also everything bagels are delicious so there’s that.

Queen & J. are two womanist race nerds talking liberation, politics, and pop-culture over tea. Drink up!

On this episode… This week on tea with queen and j. Is it important to have a Black section? and fuck does that mean? Then we remember Aretha Franklin, and get into some diasporadical foolishness, misunderstanding, voter suppression, and ghosting.

#161 Live Controversial, Die Controversial

Queen & J. are two womanist race nerds talking liberation, politics, and pop-culture and over tea. Drink up!

On this episode… What do you do when problematic (like really problematic) people die? Have you had it with Black people who don’t like being Black? We’re over them too, but we have a message for you. And our final topic, don’t be a wanksta.

This week’s hot list: Capitalism, podcast hustle, working while women, Afro-latinidad, Black/Afro-latinx identity, discoveries in Black American identity, colorism, Bad b*tch positive, Can Black women be ‘triggered’? We go there a little with XXXtentacion (with a trigger warning right before the segment so don’t fret), live controversial/die controversial, domestic violence, navigating nuanced situations and social media, social media as real life, nobody asked for your 50 Cents, Terry Cruz, sexual assault, #metoo, and Tone Def Comedy Jam
