In this episode we take a look at Cancel Culture.
May’s toolkit is putting these Unicorns to work! Cancel Culture, a challenging, divisive, and ever-increasing relevant topic in today’s world. If you occupy any presences on social media or watch the news this hot button topic has taken its share of space. So, we are breaking down this topic starting from its origin and purpose, to questioning its very existence.
As we research and simultaneously sort where we stand with cancel culture ourselves, we invite you to join the process. On the podcast you’ll hear us discuss:
· The historical trace of the literal term of Cancelled, and Cancel Culture
· Is there a true definition of cancel culture?
· An exploration of different types and/or levels of cancellation
· The comparisons between cancellation, boycotting, and protest
· The conservative and political use/misuse of cancellation
· Is cancel culture even real? Is it impactful?
· The correlation between performative activism and its relationship to cancel culture as we discuss the article The Sleep Walking White Ally by Jasmine M. Pulido
· The importance of self-examination when it comes moral, political, public and personal stance
Make sure to join us next week where we continue this topic by examining cases of cancellation and workshopping through the process of self-examination, boundaries, and actions of accountability.
_ _We make a pit stop at one of our favorite segments -Dani and Dameca Get Mad At The World, where we ask the importance questions we’re all dying to ask…why is Elon Musk hosting SNL?
We wine down our show in our Happy Place, *HINT- It was a dark and stormy night in a melanated future.
