In this episode of Shutup Podcast,  B. Black kicks it with Mz Dubious,  Rick Savory from Angel Dreams Photography and Sherley from Chonilla.com to discuss Buzzfeed’s 27 dumbass questions – as Bossip.com so eloquently put it – for Black People.

Recorded Saturday,  May 27, 2017.

Reference List:

Intro

  1. Why is it so hard to be on time?
  2. If my dab is on fleek, am I lit?
  3. Why is it a problem if I like anime?
  4. Why do black people look at your shoes before they greet you?
  5. Why are we more likely to engage in the new dance trend than we are to get involved in politics or opening a business?
  6. How did watermelon become our thing?
  7. Why do you get upset when I don’t like a black celebrity?
  8. Why do we call each other the N-word but get vehemently upset when a white person uses the N-word?
  9. Why is my natural hair, the hair that grows out of my head, seen as a political statement?
  10. Why do we think people with light skin look better than people with dark skin?
  11. Do you really believe that black is beautiful?
  12. Or it just something that you say because it sounds cool?
  13. Why do some black people say that you’re pretty ‘for a dark-skinned girl’?
  14. Why do some black men only date white women?
  15. Why is it OK for black men to date white women, but not OK for a black woman to date outside her race?
  16. Why do you protest Black Lives Matter and then tear each other down in the next breath?
  17. Why do we say that we don’t want to be seen as a monolith but then try to take people’s black cards away for not liking something that’s supposedly black?
  18. Why are we so quick to support a non-black-owned business, but then hesitate when it’s a black-owned business?
  19. Is there a cutoff time for this whole homophobia thing in the black community?
  20. Why is growing up without a father so common in our race?
  21. Why don’t we like to confront our mental health issues?
  22. Why is there a checklist for being black?
  23. Why is being educated considered ‘a white thing?’
  24. Why do you think well-off black people don’t know what it means to be black?
  25. Why do some black people say, ‘Oh, I have Native American in my family,’ in order to feel interesting or more valuable than other black people around them?
  26. Why can’t we just acknowledge that there are a bunch of different types of black people walking around and they’re all amazing and unique and special in their own way?
  27. Why are we always looking for the discount?

In this episode of Shutup Podcast,  B. Black kicks it with Conrad aka Carlos and the Reverend Dr. Steve Love to talk about movies that center around racism and B. Black‘s theory (which for some reason only seems to make sense to him) that it’s easier for White actors to play the role of a racist than it is for Black actors to play the role of a Black person.
