Queen & J. are two womanist race nerds talking liberation, politics, and pop-culture over tea. Drink up!
On this episode… We’re shedding old friendships, setting new affirmations and all kinds of fun shit before an in depth convo about #SurvivingRKelly in real life, the docuseries, why it might not go far enough, and who shouldn’t have been included.
Trigger Warning: #SurvivingRKelly conversation including discussions of rape, grooming, assault & other abuses starts at moment 48:36 and ends at 2:02:10
This week’s hot list: Witches & sorcery & Black girl magic, ending patriarchal friendships with pizazz, processing #SurvivingRKelly and reliving old sh!t, being respectable won’t save you, the fast girl myth, complicit adults, communal accountability, sex tape vs. rape tape (words mean things), celebrity victim blamers (why was Charlechew even in that doc?), and then light and fun sh!t, we promise!
