    We’ve all done it, you know being “that black girl” or “that black guy”. Black face, which was once something done to us, has now become something we do to ourselves without even realizing it. From the Real Housewives to Love & Hip-hop we see these “characters” that look like us and expose the worst parts of us as a people. On this episode we explore the problematic way we as black people present ourselves on Reality Tv and how we’ve also been pigeonholed by characters in some of our most beloved sitcoms. Tune into our latest episode “Black face for Black people” now streaming on your favorite podcast platform!

    That's my type

    That's my type

    On this episode, the ladies take a step back from the pandemic stress to have some fun discussing their wants in a bae. Everybody has a type and while men keep swiping and sliding in dm’s until they find their ideal body type, us women are criticized and left out of the discussion like we’re supposed to be happy with whatever we get. From height, personalities, accents and even skin tones the ladies run off what they want and why, while discovering the deeper meaning behind their attraction to these attributes. We all have a right to shout “that’s my type” from the roof top; tune in to hear some brutal honesty and surprising revelations.

    Reclaiming our streets

    Reclaiming our streets

    Defunding the police has been a hot button issue in the past but the light has been burning even brighter in this hellish year of 2020. From Breonna Taylor to George Floyd and all those who were senselessly killed before them we KNOW we have a police brutality problem. One of the ways black and brown communities have been expressing their demand for change is through the concept of defunding the police which in hindsight is just reallocating the funds. From body cams, to coffee with a cop nothing has changed, and defunding departments would allow communities to reclaim their streets and shift resources to areas such as mental health experts, housing, and social workers. It would also benefit police departments by allowing them more room for reform in areas like bias training, partnering with social workers & community leaders as well as mental health services for their officers.

    When these areas in underserved communities are improved not only is crime as a whole improved, but there is an increase in community moral and the notion that police need to be on "high alert" decreases resulting in less violent acts committed by the people sworn to protect us. Join us on this episode titled "Reclaiming our streets" as we dive deeper into this subject.

    Turn up and Vote!

    Turn up and Vote!

    In 2016, almost half of the voting age population stayed they ass home because "their vote didn't matter". This year, 2020 we can NOT do that again! There's so much more at stake than just the President & Vice President, there are Measures, District Attorneys, Judges and School District positions up for grabs. On this episode, we stress the importance of everyone Turning up & Voting and we explain how "teams" at all levels of Government are built. Look at the Election as draft day knowing that if ALL the players needed for your ideal winning team do not get picked nothing changes.
