“Unbought and Unbossed” History w/ @JennMJack — #KatieSpeakShow Ep164 02/23/2019

In brief: The professor is in! Jenn Jackson is back to teach on how NOT long-ago gone blackface is. Then the real story of Shirley Chisholm and how completely badass she was — a real “people’s candidate.” We discuss “rapist — that’s with an -IST — culture” and how it took us each a bit of time sitting with that shift courtesy of Roxanne Gay. (Go get “Bad Feminist.”)

As we talked about Jenn’s column on how to protect Black Girls and Women (the article were Gay’s phrase was deployed), we shifted the focus to rapists. And then on to justice. If you’re against locking people up to solve a problem (we both are), what does justice look like? We dive into Jenn’s great piece for Bitch Media: “The Prison Paradox: Ending Mass Incarceration in the Age of Cosby.”
