In part 2, we continue this controversial topic of political correctness in the Black community. Erykah Badu was labeled “anti-semitic”and Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie was labeled “transphobic” for sharing their opinions publicly. Has political correctness gone too far? Our returning guest, Dre believes colleges are turning Black students into “victims” who hide in safe spaces and complain about microaggressions all day. Gee completely disagreed with this, and it caused a heated debate between the two on this episode.
