This week was a slow news week but we delve into how Zay Jones was treated when he was experiencing an mental health episode versus the white terrorist that was sending bombs to black and brown people in Austin. We then discuss our weekly topic focusing on the nature of call out culture by examining a recent controversy involving 18 year old actress Yara Shahidi who is the star of Freeform’s Grownish.
