Queen & J. are two womanist race nerds talking liberation, politics, and pop-culture and over tea. Drink up!
On this episode… REPARATIONS! Everybody and they mama’s been throwing that word around, does it means something, does it mean nothing? What does it mean, when can we use it, and why?
This week’s hot list: Group chat etiquette, staying active vs. losing weight, what the heck are reparations, are free drinks at a bar reparations? Is an individual donation reparations? And if it ain’t reparations is it cool, is it ok, is it right? Also, that Bardi Lisa mural fiasco, and a trifling ass moment in Black hair because white supremacy won’t keep their hands out of our hair.
