Waiting to X-hale

Nov 8, 2019

All hail Regina King! Her turn on HBO’s The Watchmen alerted most of white America to the existence of a “Black Wall Street” in its opening depiction of the 1921 “Tulsa massacre.” This episode explores the shifting TV representations of the BMC or “black middle classes,” from King’s debut in the 80s sitcom 227 to the Johnsons of Black-ish today.  Karen and Wynter also talk GBBO gossip, 90 Day Fiancé drama, and a new interior design competition. Plus: NUO-LINGO and SOTW!
