Ep 35: When You’re Black and Not From America but Live in America

On this episode in our weekly roundup Shannon returns with an update, we recount the ever growing list of our problematic faves (and those that are just problematic) and their misdeeds, and we respond to the racist white nerds who targeted Anna Diop for playing Starfire in the upcoming DC Titans tv show. Our main topic then addresses what it’s like to be a black immigrant/1st gen from the Caribbean in America and the unique struggles that we face. We had some technical difficulties with our mic so please excuse the volume fluctuating.
