Episode 276

13th November 2020

Can you feel a brand new day? We discuss what this defeat of Trump especially means for Black and other marginalized folks in this historic election and we can’t stop saying, “Vice President-Elect Kamala Harris”. Some white celebs are immediately for unification, but does this speak to their white privilege? Did they forget the whole “fuck your feelings” of 2016? How do we unify? Plus we talk about getting a COVID test! Wee! In light of the election results so far, Sam takes through the history of white feminism.

Episode notes

Can you feel a brand new day?  Sam Jackson (she/her) is here and bringing out all the cans of wine as we keep the celebration going- yes she can, and she DID! We discuss what this defeat of Trump especially means for Black and other marginalized folks in this historic election and we can’t stop saying, “Vice President-Elect Kamala Harris”. Katy Perry and Zachary Levi are calling for immediate unification for the country- is it time for that? Is this white celeb privilege? Did we make up in our minds that in 2016 we might have been told to “fuck our feelings”? Just what is the path forward for the country? James went in for his first COVID test and shares why he went in to get what he thought would be his brain being scrambled. Plus our hopes and pleas for the media post-Trump. In the main Korner Sam takes us into a deep dive into the roots of white feminism, how it for over a century  neglected BIPOC women, even at the expense of them, all the way back to the Suffragettes, and how it connects with this year’s election results.  Don’t worry white feminism is not just for white women. We might be preachin’ to the choir, but sometimes the choir be offbeat.
