Addicted to Race 91: diluting feminism, Michelle Obama, the Manchurian candidate

by Carmen Van Kerckhove

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:

Do feminists who address race and racism run the risk of diluting feminism? What is it about Michelle Obama that many Americans find so threatening? Will white people be able to overcome their fear of racial retribution from a black president?
