If I’m Being Honest Podcast | Episode 9: I’m Not Your Token Black Girl (with Aaronica)

March 3, 2019

In this podcast, we will be talking about all the subjects that we tip toe around in society. We’re going to chat about the controversial, the censored, and the taboo. I’ve invited guests to talk with me about their most intimate stories, in an effort to demystify these subjects, and humanize their experience. Subscribe to the podcast on Apple Podcasts or Spotify and I’d love your 5-Star rating and review. Also, please tell your friends about it!

Today I’m talking to one of my good friends, Aaronica. Aaronica is black woman and mother of three in Atlanta, GA. I sat down with her to talk about white privilege, racism, and being a white female ally. Unless you have been living on the moon, you’ve likely seen or been a part of conversations surrounding the Black Lives Matter movement and other attention brought to the devastating reality. You’ve probably heard buzzwords on social media like being an “ally”, or “white privilege” and you might be unsure what they mean or even immediately turned off my them. Listen in on my conversation and let us awkwardly unpack it for you.

You can follow Aaronica and her family over at TheCrunchyMommy.com and on Instagram.

The article I referenced several times in the show was THIS ONE from Tolerance.org. This is the comic I referenced to illustrate my feelings on the phrase “all lives matter”:
