James comes up from his week off from his media blackout and finds out what a "Kenosha" is... wow 2020. Not ready to go there so we pivot with our two guest co-host. First: Avi Roque is here to chat cancel culture, using our social media for social activism, and how to come correct when challenging someone as we explore shame vs. guilt. Then our resident Afro-Latina comedian Glory is here to dive into something that has been weighing HEAVY on her... and she is coming for fellow Afro-Latina Zoey Saldana, who played Nina Simone and probably should not have, which opens us up into a deep conversation about Afro-Latinx heritage, and specifically Dominican history, slavery, colorism, and just how deep anti Blackness is. Also John Leguizamo we may have some words for you too, as Glory has a callout for colorism within the Latinx community, and exclusion of Afro-Latino’s. Then we’re going to finish with some self-care and do something we rarely do here on the pod and talk about relationships. Whether you're currently in one, or not you will get some great healing tools as Avi walks us through some exercises from the Anti Violence Projects’ Power and Control Wheel for Queer Partnerships.
