We’re loving this dose of True Tea – your questions, Kat Blaque’s “brutal honesty.”
In this episode, Kat answers a viewer’s question about whether or not black people can be racist. This viewer certainly isn’t the only one with this question – maybe you’ve also wondered if, for example, a black person saying “honky” holds the same weight as a white person saying the n-word.
To get to the answer, Kat breaks down what racism really is, how it differs from prejudice, and why she says it’d actually be “pretty sweet” if racism were as simple as not liking someone based on the color of their skin.
But there’s actually much more to it than that. Here’s the truth about what you’re missing if you think black people can be racist against white people.
