Queen & J. are two womanist race nerds talking politics, pop-culture and liberation over tea. Drink up!
On this episode… We discuss African American Vernacular English – Do you speak well? Can you talk good and does that sh!t even matter. Then we pay Black women, get good news about marijuana and throw some of your faves in the pit.
This week’s hot list: Hamilton is lit, colorism, you are still enough, woke privilege, Black Panther approaches! The stigma of Black America dialect/AAVE, language privilege, light skinned privilege, to be a wife or nah, call out culture maybe, racist greetings at work, a change in felony status for Californians, and can you be successful and avoid that hot mess of a misogynoirist morning show?
