EP: 39 Boycott Whet?!
Hey, hey ya’ll!
Over the last week, Shells has been ever so random and Irene is conquering the social media game… You know, the usual antics. And special hugs and loves to our line sister, Alena, and our neophyte, Ashley. These lovely ladies got married to their loves last weekend in Atlanta. Two beautiful couples, two memorable weddings in one amazing night. Congrats to The Conleys and The Proctors!
Around the water cooler, there is Sarah Palin’s “big” endorsement, Hillary’s shaky presidential pursuit, Irene’s forgiveness of Kanye, 2Chainz philanthropic work, and the despicable Flint Water Crisis.
This week’s Would You Rather is the set up for our bigger conversation… would you rather be Dark Skinned Aunt Viv or Stacey Dash? #FSGWYR
…and then there is the bigger conversation. This week, the backlash against the absence of any Oscar nominations of Black actors bubbled and boiled over. Jada Pinkett Smith called for a boycott of upcoming award show, Janet Hubert (aka: Dark Skinned Aunt Viv) responded with an animated rebuttal to Mrs. Smith, and then Stacey Dash weighed in on the challenges of diversity & segregation. We have a lot to say about all of it… ALL OF IT.
Then we wrap this show up with a lil’ Ye in Irene’s Beats and an empowering quote from not other than…Will Smith (why not?!).
Hope you enjoyed… keep riding with us and be sure to invite all your friends. Listen – Laugh – Share…and rate us on iTunes!!!
