On this week’s episode, hosts jarrett hill and Tre’vell Anderson discuss “Digital Blackface”, such as when white people use gifs of Nene Leakes as a form of their own self-expression. Our hosts pose the question, what, exactly, is the motivation behind a white person’s decision to express themselves using Black or non-white digital media online?
But first, a sneak peek into jarrett and Tre’vell’s newest book, Historically Black Phrases, dropping September 19th.

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).
