Not just 30. I’m officially into my 30s. I have mixed feelings about it. Grateful, of course, but it’s weird to say. When did this happen?
In this episode, I share some general impressions about Beyoncé’s visual album, Lemonade, talk about my 5 year reunion, and discuss West Point’s investigation of 16 black women cadets for taking a picture with their fists raised. Sound the alarm.

Mentioned In This Episode

- The Guardian article on gender, race, and the 16 West Point cadets who were investigated for expressing pride in their race.
