    Ep. 8- "Too Black & Too Queer For Amerikkka"

    This week's episode the hosts explore the difficulties of navigating through the abuse and oppression from white supremacist society and their own communities as Black and Queer women in the occupied territory known as the United States.  These reflections on the external and internal struggles center Black Feminist anti-capitalism, anti-imperialism and anti-patriarchal analysis as always. There will be no true Black liberation while Black LGBTQ people are allowed to be discriminated against by default. ALL Black people deserve freedom!

    Ep. 6 - New Year, Same Settlers (F*ck All This Sh*t Edition)

    Ep. 6 - New Year, Same Settlers (F*ck All This Sh*t Edition)

    The first episode of the New Year focuses on the recent right-wing insurrection in DC while highlighting that liberalism is complicit in white supremacist oppression as well. It also aims at the "ally industrial complex" and challenges "accomplices" to step up their support to Black, Brown and Indigenous liberation while rejecting the system that was built for settlers. Moving past performative gestures and lip service to serious and concrete actions that lead to the eradication of the empire altogether are "goals" for 2021. Features instrumentals from Madvillain and DJ OH LOW. RIP MF DOOM!
