FEEDBACK: Are the â€œEveryone Loves A Mixed Girlâ€ T-shirts from Like Minded People empowering or objectifying? Jen and Carmen discuss this question from a listener and ask Jamie Tibbetts–creator of the shirt–to chime in too.
FEEDBACK: We respond to a listener who thinks we have no business criticizing Marguerite W. Davol, author of one of the crappy childrenâ€™s books we ranted about in our last episode. He thinks weâ€™re reverse racists, and that weâ€™re spoilt rich kids who know nothing about life.
We count down the top 5 most racist compliments weâ€™ve ever received.
MIXED MEDIA WATCH NEWS UPDATE:
Jen shares the latest and greatest from Mixed Media Watch. We discuss two advertisements that try to juxtapose different ethnicities for comic effect. One is a vintage ad from Levyâ€™s Real Jewish Rye and another is a contemporary example from a real estate development company.
INTERVIEW WITH ADAM MANSBACH
Carmen interviews Adam Mansbach, author of the critically acclaimed novel Angry Black White Boy. We discuss the divide between the hip hop generation and the civil rights generation, why hip hop studies needs to be approached with more intellectual rigor, and how well-meaning progressive white people still refuse to examine their own white privilege and internal racism.
Hereâ€™s a look at the next episode:
1) Carmen will rant about the offensive stereotypes of black men and women constantly perpetuated by the media
2) Mixed Media Watch news round-up
3) Weâ€™ll bring you the very first â€œMixed Around the Worldâ€ segment. First up, Carmen discusses growing up mixed in Hong Kong.
4) Jen interviews Emily Raboteau, author of the novel The Professorâ€™s Daughter
