We discuss the cancelled of Roland Martin’s show by TV One. Mike’s audio gets staticky in the last 5 minutes but I think his words can be made out still. We salvaged what we could.

Mike and I discuss the Prince Harry/Megan Markle engagement and the Shea Butter twitter reaction to it, and then we discuss Elon James White’s miscalculation when pandering to his audience.

Discussed in this episode:

A collection of articles written by black women in mainstream media, as well as complilations of their online reactions that appeared. Based on these reactions, is it a reach to say these women were communicating an image of black women desperate for white validation? Is there a notable difference between “celebrating” and “being overjoyed” and finding “hope” when reading these reactions? Let us know.
