Show Notes

What do Gucci, Prada, Katy Perry, and The Governor of Virginia have in common? Yeah--they all tried it--blackface, that is. You've seen the obscene and insulting images, read the feeble apologies, and, if you're anything like us, bracing for the next time this nonsense rolls around. On this episode, we sit down with special guests, Dr. Aaron Smith (aka "The Rapping Professor"), host of WURD radio's morning show, "Wake up with WURD!" and Camari Ellis, "The Finance Rebel." Join the conversation as we discuss whether this resurgence of the use of blackface to insult Black folk is matter of some other folks being slick...or just plain stupid...
