Addicted to Race 120: transracial adoption, police brutality, healthy food, black Barbies

by Carmen Van Kerckhove

Addicted to Race is our weekly talk show podcast about all things race. Here’s a rundown of what you’ll find in this episode:

In a hypercapitalist culture, are children the ultimate commodity? What’s the connection between capitalism, human trafficking, and transracial adoption? How does police brutality impact communities of color? We often hear that poor people make unhealthy food choices, but how often do we consider the availability of healthy foods in poorer neighborhoods? Is Barbie’s new line of dolls really a more “authentic” representation of African-American beauty? Carmen Van Kerckhove, Tami Winfrey Harris, and atlasien 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.
