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

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.

Happy Spring! The Oreos start the episode off discussing the importance of trying to understand the content your friends love and speaking on the recent attacks on Asian women in the USA and how we can make progress going forward. Its officially be one year since lockdowns took place for most of the country so we're recapping the highs, lows and the funniest moments that took place. Kia, Amari and Janae discuss the initial fear with Covid, if a hot girl summer can exist this year and debate the accuracy of the CDC. The hosts touch on getting vaccinated, what they hope for when the world opens up and lessons learned from the past year before listing off the greatest things that have happened during one year in a pandemic.

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.

Before the Oreos get into the topic of discussion, they express their annoyance with being reached out to last minute to help on Black History Month content. But on a happier note... it's time for Valentine's Day Oreo Gang! We have heard the term "nice guy" sometimes used in a positive, negative or sarcastic way. The hosts define what exactly is a "nice guy," the extreme version of a nice guy being an "incel" and how a "pick me" is the female version of a nice guy. (Don't worry, we explain all these terms!) Kia, Janae and Amari then dive into personal stories with "nice guys" they have encountered and read audience answers on their definition of a nice guy and if they believe nice guys exist.
