Yo, Is This Racist? Podcast f/t DISGRASIAN Day 2: Workplace Segregation + A Little History Lesson

7th grade was the year parents started dropping us kids off at the mall for hours at a time with some money and a “don’t get kidnapped” warning because they needed us to be loud, annoying, and hormonal somewhere out of the house. I remember being at the movies one time with my girl posse, and I was running it before the start of the movie, and in a fit of swagger I exclaimed, “I need a microphoooone!!!!!

To which the older lady sitting behind me said–and by older, I mean from a 12 year-old’s perspective, so, like, 20 or so– “No, you don’t.”

Which shut me up right quick. Because I was taught to respect my elders.

But now I am an elder and I have the mic, bishes!!! All week long, courtesy of my pal Andrew Ti, of Yo, Is This Racist? and Yo, Should I Dump This Asshole? fame.

Today Andrew and I talk on his podcast about workplace segregation, with a little detour back through the 19th century. Have a listen!
