#ThatBlackCouple Ep 9 – Implicit Racism, Microaggressions, and Millennials

In the first segment, Jenn and Daren discuss how subtle forms of racism show up in our everyday lives.

In the second segment, they dig deeper into what implicit racism is, how we conceive of “microaggressions”, and what racism looks like for Black millennials in the United States.

In the third segment, Jenn and Daren talk about how we address these issues and what are some ways to combat these issues as we do the adulting thing.

Podcast Summary:
This is an accidentally funny podcast about the realities of Blackness and adult life. We do “adult” differently. We are That Black Couple.
Our goal is to create a space for Black millennials to discuss and embody adult life on their own terms. We aren’t beholden to “traditional” gender or parenting roles, queerness is fluid and present in the ways we show up in our relationships and in the world, and we want to build community with other 30-something Black folx who are trying to figure this ish out.
