This episode is quite the doozy – real complex and complicado! This week the hosts examine the concept of “the white friend” – or is it “a friend who happens to be white”? jarrett and Tre’vell break down what the difference is. But first, jarrett sheds some light on the Jussie Smollett case, and the demonstrable lies that formed the public narrative, and the demonstrable truths…that didn’t. Smollett’s lawyers are appealing the case.

About the show
Sometimes the people, places, and things we love don’t love us back. We’re fans, but we also have some ANTI- feelings toward them. Every week on FANTI, journalists Tre’vell Anderson and jarrett hill bring their pop culture and political expertise to things we must stan and stand up against. FANTI is a place where nuance reigns supreme with energetic, complicated, and sometimes difficult conversations that bring deep knowledge and thoughtful perspective to the things we love and rage about, from the White House to the Real House(wives).
