This week, Jarrett Hill and Tre’vell Anderson discuss why so many Black folks are hesitant to get vaccinated for covid-19 and the African American community’s complicated relationship to the healthcare industry. We’re joined by Nurse Alice Benjamin and Dr. Darien M. Sutton who will give us all the information we need to make an informed decision about the vaccine.

We’re joined by educator Bianca Mabute-Louie for a conversation about the rise in anti-Asian violence in the nation and how communities of color can come together to create change.
This week, Tre’vell has a dishonorable mention for the mainstream media’s handling of the Equality Act passing as well as a dishonorable mention for anti-trans legislation in the state of Alabama.

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).
