Kat and Bill ditch the segments and spend the whole show discussing the Fugitive Slave Act of 1850’s influence on modern day policing and the not so recent epidemic of white people calling the police on black people for simply existing.
Kat and Bill introduce a new segment Breathing While Black where we talk about black people just trying to live. They then go into gender identity, queer misogyny and gender policing. They later honor Alice H. Parker for her invention that paved the way for central heating.
In this episode, Kat and Bill request that people keep pussy hats off of Harriet Tubman’s Harlem statue, stop acting like they don’t understand the concept of colorism and provide us with reparations. This episode begins a very exciting Black Ass History Month.
Kat forgot to turn on Bill’s mic for the first 10 mins of the episode. She tried to fix in post production so please refrain from dragging her on audio quality.
Kat and Bill introduce a new segment: Hot Takes on Hot Trash where they let loose on the current events. Kat then demands for Bill to explain why men are trash in their main segment. Lastly in This week in Black Superhero, Kat expresses her love for the representation of Black people in this genre.
