Queen & J. are two womanist race nerds talking liberation, politics, and pop-culture over tea. Drink up!
On this episode… Do you have a problem with Black girl voices? When is a work of art patronizing of its subject and when is it supportive of a marginalized group? We drag your faves and talk about chicken
This week’s hot list: For All Nerds, go see The Farewell, @hillmangradmentorship, work hacks, surviving the heat wave, can your partner fix sh!t? Kids have whole complicated scary lives like everybody else, Beyonce talks good, Beyonce’s Lion King bops and #BrownSkinGirl, colorism, no we mean actual colorism & light skinned privilege and real life colorism, (also while we’re here a reminder to maybe stop using the word ‘fair’ to describe light skinned people. The term fair embodies the colorism that celebrates light skin as superior), school lunch and foster care, capitalists are wilding again, #payBlackwomen, don’t lie about chicken and mad other ish.
