Addicted to Race is New Demographic’s podcast about America’s obsession with race.
Here’s a rundown of what you’ll find in this episode:
What does the graphic nature of the Myanmar disaster coverage say about the value of yellow, brown and black lives? Why have we sanitized the memory of Martin Luther King to the point where we are shocked by a statue depicting him with his arms crossed? And lastly, does hip hop help or harm social justice?

Note from Carmen: This episode was supposed to come out the week of May 19th, but unfortunately I only got around to editing and posting it this weekend. The good news though, is that you’ll get two ATR episodes this week! Look for episode 90 this Friday.
