Queen & J. are two womanist race nerds talking liberation, politics, and pop-culture and over tea. Drink up!
On this episode… what the hell is happening on television? We discuss The Simpsons, The Problem with Apu, and a bunch of other shows that are giving us Black joy or causing us Black concern. We explore how white supremacist patriarchal capitalism is trying to fvck with our natural hair routines. And opinions that we didn’t ask for, like Kanye’s, your woman beating cousins on facebook, and Charles Barkley’s.
