    If Brown Is Wrong Then I Don't Want To Be Right

    If Brown Is Wrong Then I Don't Want To Be Right

    IT’S HERE! The live show recording where Yvette interviewed Kala and Vane about intersectional feminism, matriarchy, and unlearning white supremacist beauty standards to love themselves as women of color. They analyzed “Pussy Kills” and “Brown Babies” by rapper Rocky Rivera and discussed the importance of the reproductive justice framework, how radical and revolutionary it is for women of color to birth babies, and how to balance recognizing that pussy kills and that genitalia does not define womanhood.

    *PREVIEW* On this #litreview, Yvette and her Yale sorority sister Maria digest the first 150 pages of Gioconda Belli's memoir "El Pais Bajo Mi Piel". They discuss whether Belli is sufficiently honest about her class positionality and the privileges that brought her in the revolution, critique how the most prominent figures from Latin American literature and art tend to have some proximity to whiteness, and express appreciation for Belli's descriptions of divine femininity.

    Being Undocumented In This Country Is Not A Crime

    Being Undocumented In This Country Is Not A Crime

    On this episode, Yvette and Jehan break down “United States v. Sineneng-Smith,” a case that was up before the Supreme Court this past week for oral arguments regarding a statute that criminalizes encouraging or inducing a migrant to stay in the United States without authorization. 

    They outline the reasons the statute at issue is problematically vague and overbroad, how it could potentially be prosecuted, and why it will chill free speech if decided incorrectly.

Customer Reviews

Queer Latina ,

Well- researched with heart

I love RC because it’s a way to stay informed on Border- snd Tucson-relevant current events in a way that doesn’t add to the dehumanization of asylum seekers and Black/brown folks. I also appreciate the emphasis on Central American issues because I’m of both Mexican & Nicaraguan descent.
