#ThatBlackCouple Ep 26 – “Why we aren’t rooting for everybody Black”
In the first segment, Jenn and Daren talk through why Kanye West’s and Terry Crews’ recent headline-making actions are proof that we shouldn’t root for everybody Black.
In the second segment, they dive into a deep discussion on how Black Entertainment has largely not been held accountable for advancing Black narratives in TV. They also explain why it is important that we hold people like Kenya Barris and Issa Rae accountable for their art while not “canceling” them.
In the third segment, Jenn and Daren reflect on how the “slowed and reverb” movement captures the importance of putting the highest level of care into Black art and how holding Black folx accountable is a way to show love for all of the Black people.
