While Tre’vell continues their workacation, we’ve got FANTI veteran Dr. Charles H.F. Davis III joining jarrett for an in-depth conversation about Blackness, anti-Blackness, and the ways our [collective] obsession with skin tone is yet another insidious and toxic byproduct of white supremacy.
Plus, why are folks celebrating Burger King employee Kevin Ford for a 27-year perfect attendance record? jarrett and Charles get into all the ways stories like this should be cause for sorrow, and not celebration.

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).
