Ep 28: When Black Male Nerds Attack

In this episode we discuss Childish Gambino’s “This is America” and examine how it led to intense debate by so called “black male nerds” who felt black women didn’t want them in high school because they liked comics, anime, etc. which in turn drove them to only date non-black women.

Ep 25.5: Kanye Lives in the Sunken Place

Still not the 90s nostalgia episode but we had to comment on this Kanye West foolishness with his support of 45 and what it means that this was the same guy that said on live tv that “George West Doesn’t Care about black people” after Katrina.
