In brief: Academic and advocate, racial justice badass Jenn M. Jackson is back on the show! We go into several of her recent Teen Vogue columns in depth: breaking down why it’s ’nice’ Kim Kardashian helped one incarcerated person gain freedom, but Jenn is still not inviting her to the cookout; some history on why women of color have “Equal Pay Days” so much later in the year than white women; and why “I never call the police” is a blanket statement uttered by communities of color — one white folx need to understand stat.
