EPISODE 46: Blacks in Higher Education

Our guests B, from the Urban Collective Podcast & Omar sat with us to discuss the college enrollment process on episode 46. We also discussed the the low percentage of African Americans in top ranking colleges and universities. How can we ensure that the majority of scholarships and enrollment slots designated for descendants of Black people that have suffered from institutional racism in this country for generations remain with them? Should first and second-generation Black students of Caribbean and African descent be labeled “African American” or “Black” by these colleges and universities? And should there be a clear distinction between African Americans and Black people of the African Diaspora in regards to college enrollment?

EPISODE 44: Charlamagne Tha Accused, Debating Public Outrage over CTG’s Actions

*Disclaimer: The subject matter discussed on this episode is very sensitive and could be triggering for some listeners.

On Episode 44, Gee referenced the previous Real or Fake segment, Charlamagne should be forgiven if he raped Jessica Reid” and this sends Rome into a surge of discontentment with public outrage over Charlamagne. This led the group way off course from the original topic of Implicit Bias (held off for next week) and on to a passionate debate on outrage over Charlamagne Tha God’s actions.
