Episode 25: The Ghosts of Jim Crow


***Show Notes***

This week we start off with some #BlackBoyJoy as we salivate, I mean, celebrate Mahershala Ali’s cover of GQ Magazine during Ramadan. Next, we get into some tips for protecting your natural hair this summer. Yes ladies, your hair needs a sunscreen too!

In our #CultureFix segment, we discuss Love and Hip Hop Hollywood’s Christopher Milan ...ummm.. full (and we do mean full) frontal editorial for Paper Magazine. Then Bill Cosby wants to on a speaking tour about how to prevent sexual assault allegations. Not to prevent actual sexual assaults, but just the allegations. So you know Nikki and Toni had something to say about that. Just keep it in your pants bruh.

In the #PoliticsFix, the Democrats want to push Nancy Pelosi out of her speaker role. But Nikki notes that she out fundraises everyone in the party. Can’t get rid of your main money makers Dems.

In the #BeautyFix, Toni breaks down the “beef” between Jackie Aina and Jeffree Star. Bottom line, Star is trash and don’t give him your money. Literally buy anything else. Cuz who needs a black highlighter anyway.

Finally in the #FaithFix, we posed this question: “How early should we start talking to our youths (children, siblings, cousins) about race and police brutality. We were admittedly shook after the not guilty verdict for the Philando Castille murder and the Season Two premiere of “Queen Sugar.” Nikki and Toni tell stories about their brothers and racial incidents and how race affects their everyday lives. And Nikki has a book suggestion for our listeners: “Ghosts of Jim Crow” that breaks down how America go to our current racial state. So get to listening yall. It’s a good episode!
