Challenging, Provocative, Another Way to have the “Conversation”

As a white middle aged white woman I say, if we want to undo racism in this white-dominant culture in all its forms (it is destructive to ALL peoples) and get to a level playing field for one and all, we have to accept it will be a messy, uncomfortable and hard going. A lot of approaches to and forums for educating whites and making advances towards a level playing field will have to be tried and explored. An intelligent, humorous tact - with many a truth might be said in between and in the jests - is a good one to have. Dark Tank at its best can be this. But like so many of these approaches, it can at times miss the mark (e.g., be too too biting, tame or off course), but it’s worth a listen and support. Keep at it Yedoye!

PERFECT [Street Fighter II voice]

I never write reviews but this Podcast is worth speaking on. I only found out about this podcast from Get in The Robot where Yedoye's commentary stood out. This podcast is necessary and if you weren't so triggered from its premise you'd realize it's SATIRE. To an extent that is, of course there are definitely real truths in all of this. But, all in all worth the listen. Btw, reverse racism is a hilarious unrealistic concept😂. White ppl telling other ppl they're being shamed for being white is hilarious. I digress, enjoy this refreshing content from both demographics.

Disgraceful

The description says it all. Unbelievably hypocritical and disappointing that this app would allow this blatantly racist podcast to be be publicized.
