The Negro Problem and Asian Hate: The Fight for White
This episode is dedicated to the memory and power of the victims of white domestic terrorism in Atlanta, the survivors and their families as well as the victims and survivors of all forms of sinophobic, anti-immigrant, anti-sex work and anti-Asian xenophobia/ US imperialist violence against Asian bodies happening all around the globe. If you would like to join us in a moment of silence, fast forward to the 1:54:28. This episode is also dedicated to Stacey Park Milbern, one of the creators of the disability justice movement.

Our Election System is Based on 5 Black Ppl Being Worth 3 white but the US is definitely a Democracy
I know because my fascist government that sends its CIA to destabilize other countries it criticizes for not being democracies in bloody coups that kill millions of innocents all over the world while waging genocide against Black people for over 3 centuries while begging me to send $3 to a white cis man in order to save the country from another white cis man told me so...even though we don't have a direct election method and I actually vote for another random person in my state to vote for me--not the president.
See you November 4th (InshAllah).

White Ppl Can't Get Cancelled: The Bezos You Know; The Hankinsons, Cosgroves and Mattinglys You Dont
And the Epsteins, the Michael Wolls, the Roger Stones, the Alexander Hamiltons, the David Starkeys, the Stephen Millers, the William Barrs, the Joe Biden's, the Tucker Carlsons, the Reed Hastings, Benjamin Netanyahus, Winston Churchills, FDRs, your non-profit executive director, maybe your partner, maybe you. There are so many names of white cis men who commit murder, spew anti-Black racism with impunity, collude with a white supremacist state to leverage the anti blackness inherent in our institutions--keeping Black people from access to capital that belongs to us in a country that we built, but also rendering the violence that happens to us invisible when these same white cis men RARELY lose their jobs (like being the President of this country) or face even the slightest consequences for the most egregious offenses from "white collar" crimes, environmental degradation and genocide. Black has somehow become synonymous with "crime", our deaths ruled "accidental" "misunderstandings" up for debate--after all, when a white person says or does something racist, they get a pre-written apology, a vacation, it's said they need a racial and social justice workshop, to read white fragility written by a fragile white person, all while keeping their same level of privilege, power and financial standing. Meanwhile, Black people meet the ultimate, permanent cancellation for far less. It's about time we "Say their names"...before they say ours.
Can you name white people who have caused harm? Or do you only have the names of those who experienced it?

When the Chickens Come Home to Roost They Will Be Seasoned
There is a genocide against Black people in the United States happening now and white people are intentionally killing us while other white people, incentivized by our deaths, write FB statuses. Black skin in white masks beg for forgiveness on white ppl's behalf, rationalize their terror as some fault of our own and do the bidding of the police state and the mainstream white corporate celebrities that support them. Black trans women and femmes still comprise some of the highest deaths in this country but their deaths at the hands of the state and its agents go unnoticed--erasure as a tool of the oppressor.
Content Warning: Police brutality, violence, death, racism, transphobia, misogynoir, homophobia, housing insecurity, wage and labor exploitation, white peopling.

30 Days A Slav--Essential: Disposable Tomorrow.
It's business as usual in AmeriKKKa...a state of emergency has been declared in New York State yet rent is still due all the same. Black people still comprise the highest number of deaths from COVID 19 across the nation and our enemies couldn't be more visible. Dr. Armen Henderson, a black doctor in Miami was handcuffed by police for no reason while administering COVID 19 tests for the unhoused. Essential workers are making less money than ppl receiving unemployment. The rich get richer and the senators still sell stocks before impending market crashes and buy stock in teleconferencing companies, too. Being essential is not a prize when you're disposable tomorrow. Some people got shelter and places, and some people got million dollar stimulus checks. But Gavin Newsome is great tho, right?

I know we are all asking ourselves, "how long do we have to live like this?" in regard to shelter in place or social distancing guidelines but when it comes to racial violence and white supremacist rhetoric, we also must ask ourselves--how long do we have to live like this? The promise of a new world, of "coming together" starts with an interrogation and rejection of mass marginalization under global capitalism and how we got here, to a pandemic that costs human lives. Until then, make sure to Buy Black. Voice Credit for Intro: Tasha Lott.

Music: Apathy Happy by Benjamin Earl Turner
A must-add podcast to your racial and social justice learning
Ericka and Ebony put so much heart, energy, work and knowledge into every episode. This podcast should be played in every university, bank, coffee shop and household on repeat, and Ericka and Ebony should be paid for every minute of it. They each show up as their whole selves and share so much information as they are quite literally experts. I’ve learned more here than I’ve learned from any sociology class. Grateful to you both, and sending all of my love and gratitude. Salaam. ❤️
This podcast is very divisive, if you’re looking for place to wallow in being a victim, you’ve come to the right place! Also, love how the creators put their Venmo handles in the description, nice touch!
Racism and double standards are everywhere in this podcast.
This podcast is racist towards white people, and the hosts never admit when they are unsure of something. This podcast should be delisted for misinformation, racism, and attempting to divide people by constantly bashing white people to no end.
