Queen & J. are two womanist race nerds talking liberation, politics, and pop-culture and over tea. Drink up!
On spot of tea episode… Does marrying a Black woman mean that you love Black women? Probably not. Also, skin bleaching and who gets to joke about it - 50/50 chance says not you. And as usual a moment in Black hair and a moment in Black ass life.
This week’s hot list: Is Chadwick over it? Black trauma and This Is America, misogynoir is mad common, listen to The Black Guy Who Tips podcast, can you build a house? Can you send reparations via paypal? Queen is running a 5k, self-validation and creativity, colorism, new hair who dis, and Black art, white audience or nah.
