Edit: I mentioned that Elizabeth Warren is offering 50 million toward HBCUs as part of her reparations support--the correct (heretofore imaginary) number is 50 billion, still a pittance in comparison to most contemporary calculations that put the number somewhere in the trillions like in this article: https://finance.yahoo.com/news/40-acres-and-a-mule-reparations-in-2019-190018747.html?soc_src=social-sh&soc_trk=fb&utm_content=bufferf8266&utm_medium=social&utm_source=facebook.com&utm_campaign=buffer&fbclid=IwAR1zHBtViUGJdRRfqsPxqqQV5stJ0ArD4dMAAdqgPA...

Rank #3: Everybody wanna be black til it's time to be white: Non-Black POC & AAVE in service of Antiblackness

Podcast cover
Read more
AAVE=African American Vernacular English
POC= People of Color

This Episode could have had a couple of names:
No one wins when veiled anti-blackness among non black POC is a proxy for solidarity

no one wins when you use AAVE and you're not black: the anti blackness of non black POC

no one wins when you're neither black nor really my family so don't call me sis: POC and anti blackness

this episode is onfleeklitbrosishomie

Everybody wanna be black til it's time to dismantle white supremacy

Both vilified and stolen, black folks aren't the only ones benefitting from black linguistic and cultural production.

Get into 20 minutes of outtakes at the end...this episode could have also gone on for hours.

"The true focus of revolutionary change is never merely the oppressive situations which we seek to escape, but that piece of the oppressor which is planted deep within each of us."---Audre Lorde

To preamble the episode: We didn't talk about how Twitter and companies like it-Google, Facebook, etc. have whole diversity departments, committees and initiatives and make marketing videos featuring a whole bunch of black folks but employee less than 3% of us. How the conversation about representation allows the system to continue to work--as long as we are used for aesthetic, put on display, "visible", the world is completely content with whiteness remaining dominant.

Join us on a furiously tender conversation.

Rank #7: This is America: Black Cis Men Never Held Accountable for Selling Out Black Pain for White Pleasure

Podcast cover
Read more
WHITE CIS MEN HAVE COMMITTED MORE MASS SHOOTINGS IN THE US THAN ANY OTHER GROUP...but I'm sleep.

Black people are murdered and it’s an idea for a storyboard for a rap music video without a trigger warning. Black people are not paying attention, while the world continues to kill us. We only pay attention when black cis men tell us to. Listen to them. Black cis men know what we need. And we should listen. They are geniuses. They win Pulitzers for their music without having to reckon with the misogynoir conveniently overlooked to get them there. And slavery was a choice. But, just hear him out. And he’s the King so he doesn’t give head. But he is not really Black, so it’s different. We spend hours talking through our pain from being re-traumatized and he “just wanted to make good music”.
He could care less that people actually died. But but they are just destroying a Black man’s legacy.
He got his money
And will continue to
And we will sit by and watch him dance
On the tv
Never at a rally
And keep giving him money for the value of his meta distraction
We get tired of calling him in
He doesn’t listen
Why talk. He’s talking. Just let him speak!
Just a body on his way to fame
To the white girl across the room
We are just a body
To be used
At the cookout on 4th of July
At his leisure
Our pain is a joke
And a moment,
Not happening all the time.

Join us for another episode of Hoodrat to Headwrap as we distract you from black cis men centering whiteness again (are you entertained?).

Rank #10: Astrology Takin' Over for the 99 and the Two Thou: A Chani Nicholas Gamesgiving

Podcast cover
Read more

Lots of memes declaring snarky platitudes and generalizing quips about astrological signs (e.g., what each sign would do in a horror movie, lots of other ones we can Pinterest lol)circulating round the net. Needless to say, the younger generation is getting witchy, but it wasn't cool to be witchy back in the day outside of 90s pop culture references, movies like The Craft w/ the tartan skirts, white shirts and suspenders (only one black girl in the craft now that I think of it!). So join us in parsing that out on Hoodrat to Headwrap's first episode of our Gamesgiving Series with...

Chani Nicholas

Don't miss this generous game give out on what the hell is happening in the heavens, and what it has to do with Mesopotamia, hippies in the sixties, white supremacy and most importantly, you.
