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.
