Queen & J. are two womanist race nerds talking liberation, politics, and pop-culture over tea. Drink up!
On this episode… Are you Black enough, are you dark enough and is that the same thing? White passing in Hollywood and who gets to claim Black or brown and does white supremacy have anything to do with it. Then demonizing Black children and infantilizing white adults, and are you throwing a party, a conference, or an event just to say you did it? You wack for that.
This week’s hot list: Venus is in retrograde and your ex is calling you. Who decides who is “white passing”? Dwayne Johnson is a Black ass name but The Rock as John Henry or nah? Nuance is not just a word that people refuse to google. Teresa Sue Klein aka Cornerstore Caroline is a social terrorist, and more!
