This week, hosts Jarrett Hill and Tre’vell Anderson are talking about the rise in gun ownership in the Black community.
Since March 15th there have been 45 events classified as ‘mass shootings. This year alone – as of the time we’re producing this episode – there have been 147 mass shootings.
With a rise in gun circulation, a 36% increase in background checks for firearms and an uptick in gun sales during the election year we’re asking the question: should Black Americans join in on America’s seeming obsession with guns?

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).
