We go from Karen to Karen this week. Have you heard of social media chef Alison Roman- well she seems to be dragging Chrissy Tiegan and Marie Kondo, while other Karen Lana Del Rey seems to also be dragging women of color, and Ariana Grande – what is going on white women? Joe Biden might not be a white woman but that didn’t stop his whiteness from stepping in it too, we unpack the gaffe heard around the social media scapes and while some may be outraged, some are just shrugging our shoulders. Also Black women are being negated on TikTok. Have you ever heard of the little rich Black girl Oil Tycoon? I hadn’t’ either until one of our listeners pointed me to it: Sarah Rector, and her essentially slavery to riches story. And then finally stick around till the end as I unpack the two latest incidents showcasing Americas racism that had two very different outcomes involving Black men: Christian Cooper, and George Floyd and our call to action about what you can do about it. This is a jam packed episode.
