Queen & J. are two womanist race nerds talking liberation, politics, and pop-culture and over tea. Drink up!
On this episode… What do you do when problematic (like really problematic) people die? Have you had it with Black people who don’t like being Black? We’re over them too, but we have a message for you. And our final topic, don’t be a wanksta.
This week’s hot list: Capitalism, podcast hustle, working while women, Afro-latinidad, Black/Afro-latinx identity, discoveries in Black American identity, colorism, Bad b*tch positive, Can Black women be ‘triggered’? We go there a little with XXXtentacion (with a trigger warning right before the segment so don’t fret), live controversial/die controversial, domestic violence, navigating nuanced situations and social media, social media as real life, nobody asked for your 50 Cents, Terry Cruz, sexual assault, #metoo, and Tone Def Comedy Jam
