SJB Comes to AUA: Part Two- Bloody Sunday. We got receipts.

00:0000:00

In continuance of the previous episode Ricky and Rashanni of the Single Simulcast go in a pair of feckless, soft, patriarchal black podcasters after they try engage in revisionist history while attacking black women. Don't worry, we brought receipts and took no mercy. It don't look good for them, at all.

00:0000:00

Ricky is joined by Single Simulcast's own Rashanii to discuss two podcasters who can't seem to get right, or tell the truth for that matter. Basically, we had to slap a couple podcasters, and we made it sound sexy. Part 2 coming soon.

AUA Podcast Episode 27: The Case for Reparations

AUA Podcast Ep 27 Show Notes

The Case for Reparations

In this episode Ricky & Cherelle are joined by special guest Davie Celeste and Angry White Guy James to discuss the case for reparations for the generations long oppression of  Black people in America.

We use the Coates' article by the same name as a means of putting the concept into perspective, addressing the historical evidence of why reparations would be necessary and then we look at  how

reparations should look and whether or not Sanders' lack of support for reparations taint his call for a political revolution. A long one but a good one. Enjoy!

We’ll be using these as a starting point to set the historical basis.
