Addicted to Race 118: Vogue Evolution, Kanye, Tyler Perry, Annoying Parents

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:

What impact did Vogue Evolution — an openly gay dance crew featuring a trans woman — have on MTV’s America’s Best Dance Crew? When Kanye West protested Taylor Swift winning a VMA over Beyonce, did race have anything to do with it? What does it say about race and gender in Hollywood that Tyler Perry has been tapped to write, direct, and produce a film based on Ntozake Shange’s choreopoem “For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When The Rainbow is Enuf?” Is there an upside to being an Annoying Parent when it comes to diversity at your child’s school? Carmen Van Kerckhove, Tami Winfrey Harris and Thea Lim discuss.

Addicted to Race is broadcast live every Sunday afternoon at 12 pm Eastern. You can listen live on our BlogTalkRadio page and call in by dialing 347-996-3958.
