This week we are literally recording in a korner! We have actress Teresa Attridge stepping into the guest co host spot while Nnekay is still out on maternity leave, and as our first Asian American guest (sorry it took so long) we have so much to talk about! Is it time to rethink Avenue Q? Is it dated? Is everyone REALLY a bit racist? Terasa weighs in on interracial relationships and how she's navigated it. Also, she breaks down the model minority myth, it’s history where it came from along with the desexualization of Asian men, and over sexualization of Asian women. She shares her theories on how those in power weaponize our differences against each other, why younger Asian Americans are drawn towards black/hip hop culture, the Black/Asian divide, and so much more! Plus we get her thoughts on Marie Kondo. But first I dive into the case for Reparations: It’s about fucking time ya’ll and we could be the generation to do it! I break down it's history, precedents of it happening before inside the US and out, the continued growing wealth gap, what it might look like, and why it is so necessary if we are ever going to have true healing in America.
