Welcome back to Rescue Dog Love! Today, host Yamini chats with Kassidi, PhD student, mom to rescue dog Ginger and animal advocate who uses her Instagram platform to educate on dogs, racism and allyship. We discuss her adorable pitbull mix Ginger, and go into the history of pitbulls and their relationship to anti-Blackness, as well as other issues about race that are persistent in the dog world (and overall world, duh!). Plus, of course, we chat all the different ways we can think before we continue to perpetuate white supremacy!
