Episode 2 Recap: "Black and Yellow"
Hello all you beautiful people! Here it is, the Episode two recap. Let’s go!
This week, Angie and Ton sat down to talk about something that is important in their lives: their identities. “Black and Yellow” is a new and recurring segment where Angie and Ton find the differences and similarities of their “black and yellow” experience in America, and find the humor in it all. When comparing and contrasting Angie’s Black American identity, and Ton’s first generation Asian experience, topics in this conversation include parental expectations, family dynamics, and POC excellence.
We then move on to our “Weary” segment, where Angie and Ton discuss the most important weary they’ve handled so far: men ain’t shit. After hearing about the recent news allegations against R. Kelly, Usher, and Kevin Hart (links below), they sit down and discuss the inequality and violence against women, and rant about the double standard that exists.
