Strange Fruit: 'Black Elitism' And Anti-Blackness On TV

This Is Us
NBC.com
/

We love the NBC show "This is Us."

We also love writer and podcast host Jenn M. Jackson.

So, when she wrote a piece calling out "This is Us" for what she calls "Black elitism" and anti-blackness, we had to sit up and take notice.

Jackson joins us on this week's show to tell us what she means... and remind us that all our faves are problematic.
