On this week’s episode, journalists Tre’vell Anderson and jarrett hill discuss the very complex and complicado of Don Lemon, and how his legacy has not only affected pop culture, but the Black community. Our hosts get into the dichotomy of the journalist, as both a victim and perpetrator of homophobia and anti-blackness. But first, a special FANTI exclusive on Tre’vell and jarrett’s upcoming book, Historically Black Phrases. (Dropping September 19th) And later Tre’vell shares their run in with somebody’s grandmother during their book tour of We see Each Other: A Black Trans Journey Through Television and Film.

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).
