#EqualPayDay, #CookoutCulture, & the Cult of Celebrity w/ @JennMJack — #KatieSpeakShow Ep143 8/18/2018

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.

Note: This show is available to stream and download for free so it can be accessible for everyone. If you’re able, consider becoming a supporter for as little as $1/month at PATREON or making a one-time donation at PAYPAL.me/KatieSpeak. Thank you!
