Society & Culture

The So-Called Oreos Podcast is hosted by three friends who identify as being labeled an “oreo,” a term describing a person who is “black on the outside and white on the inside.” Each episode, Kia, Janae and Amari discuss all the awkwardness, hardship and hilarity of being labeled “too black” or “too white” in society and how this effects our everyday life.

Episodes

It's a single Oreo episode with Amari interviewing her co-host of ESPN's Sound On with Tari & Amari, Tari Kandemiri. Tari is the creator of the popular social account, Official Lax Girl, the founder of skincare company Hama Beauty Inc, and on the Board of Directors of The Tewaaraton Foundation. Tari gives us the details on how she fell in love with lacrosse after moving to The States from Zimbabwe and growing her anonymous twitter account @officiallaxgirl to over 18k to express her love for the sport. Tari opens up about finding feminism through lacrosse and using her platform for equality as well as how lacrosse has opened so many doors for her. The two chat about the myth of men’s sports being more entertaining than women’s, being the only Black person on your team and the reality of being a huge face in lacrosse as a Black woman in a white-dominated sport.

The Oreos sit down to discuss all things religion and spirituality as they grapple with not fully believing in things that are common in the Black community. After giving a history lesson and stats on the current relationship between Black people and religion, the hosts discuss their religious upbringing, the importance of church in Black culture and why they have issues with the church and organized religion. The three touch on the recent backlash that Lil Nas X received as well as how your relationship with men can effect your relationship with God. Kia explains how she has struggled connecting with other forms of spirituality while Amari and Janae express when they feel most spiritual before reading audience responses on the topic.

The Oreos answer the very important and complicated question, can minorities be racist? It's something we've seen discussed and wanted to do a deep dive to settle the answer once and for all. Kia and Janae are joined by Jasmine Price, an educator, professor, and most importantly, Janae's older sister. Janae explains the difference between prejudice, discrimination and racism before Jasmine gives a lesson on the circle of oppression, circle of equality and forms of injustice so we can truly understand if "reverse racism" is a thing. The episode ends with some very interesting social responses that spark an interesting convo.

It is almost officially that one year mark from when lockdowns swept America and the world because of Covid -19. Kia and Janae reminisce on the initial shock of events in March 2020 and Janae explains why she is hyped to be qualified for the vaccine. To start off the topic of discussion, the Oreos explain the concept of the "Great Reverse Migration" from Charles M Blow and the reason why Black Americans moving back to the South becomes more appealing each day. Kia and Janae are later joined by friends Lex and Gena, a gay couple who met in New York and decided to get hitched and move to Atlanta, GA to start their lives. Lex and Gena give us the pros and cons of moving back to the South and suggestions for those wanting to take part in the Great Reverse Migration. Lex explains how she went from being an EMT in New York to a Pet Stylist in Atlanta and doubling her income and having more time and money in Atlanta.
