Intrigued!

We’re waiting! I just learned about you through some of your articles. When can we expect the first episode?

Than you

You have given me some bit of hope that eventually this will improve though it may take 50 years.

Not what I was expecting

I thought she was going to be along the lines of Cynthia G or Paris Milan. Instead, she’s more like Candace Owens. She basically argues that racism and white supremacy are just figments of our collective imaginations at this point in society and that if you look and act a certain way as a black woman (i.e by adapting very “white”/Eurocentric standards of beauty and femininity) then you shouldn’t have any problems. I’m usually all for discussions supporting black women broadening their romantic options and “divesting,” but something about the host is off putting.
