    ”Does A Ride Or Die Really Exist?”

    ”Does A Ride Or Die Really Exist?”

    We've all heard of the "ride or die" trope but is finding a ride or die partner actually obtainable? Before Kia, Amari and Janae get into the main topic(starts at 24:50), they discuss their trauma of white people loving Black-dominated sports and their issues with one of their favorites... Adele. The hosts explain the difference of the "ride or die" meaning from women vs. men, Janae seeing the "ride or die" mentality in her parents' relationship and their personal experiences acting as ride or dies.

    ”Why Is There A Divide Within The African Diaspora?”

    ”Why Is There A Divide Within The African Diaspora?”

    Have you noticed that there always seems to be a disconnect between African Americans and other people in the Diaspora? Why does it feel like being labeled "African American" is a bad thing? Sufficiently Black explores these questions with "daughter of Africa," Howard University Professor Dr. Amy Yeboah Quarkume. Dr. A explains the importance of language to limit the divide, whether people in the Diaspora are capable of cultural appropriation and the issues with Marvel's Black Panther.

    [Playback] ”So You Want To Get Into Astrology Feat. Mecca Woods”

    Oreo gang we promise this is the final playback episode before the official rebrand to Sufficiently Black on September 21st! Until then, we are visiting one of our favorite episode where we sat down with Mecca Woods, a professionally trained astrologer, author, host and podcaster to talk all things astrology! Mecca gives us all the details on the traits of the four elements of the zodiac signs, how we attract people who hold the qualities we lack, opposite signs and why we pay attention to our sun, moon and rising placements. Mecca reads our birth charts to discover the problems in our love lives and explains why certain signs like Gemini and Scorpio get so much hate.
