Addicted to Race 104: Inauguration and Black Female Bodies

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:

Why did the mainstream media act as if President Obama’s inauguration was a moment that only African-Americans could celebrate? Now that we have a black family in the White House, who will be able to translate black vernacular and cultural phenomena to non-black folks? And finally, why the ongoing fascination with black women’s behinds?
