010: Mixed but also Black with Lili Robinson & Ryanna BlackChat the Podcast

Firstly, did y’all catch that Oprah interview? I 10/10 recommend if you got the time. In this week’s episode, Morgan is joined by her LITERAL sibling, Ryanna! And playwright (amongst other great things,) Lili Robinson! And we talk about being mixed and pick it apart and confront it. All of us light-brites need to actually have conversations with each other and take feedback from darker-skinned folks without being defensive. Pick apart your defensiveness. That’s white supremacy. Just listen to the episode. We share personal experiences in the world in relation to our Blackness and our whiteness, examine social biases and privilege, and a liiiiittle bit about the Oprah interview. All that being said, we note that criticism/critique from dark-skinned folks is welcomed and will be received. And light-skinned folks who disagree with those critiques, confront them within yourself before running our mouths. * * * Check out: Lili on IG @lilrobmakesthings and Mx the Play on Facebook and Instagram @MxthePlay And the Prairie Youth Radical Organizing School at https://www.pyros-coop.org/ Stay tuned for new episodes every other week with transcriptions coming soon!

Episode Details

Episode 1: Welcome

Episode 3: Sliders and Solidarity


We are stolen people residing and operating on the stolen ancestral homelands of the Coast Salish peoples. Including but not limited to xʷməθkʷəy̓əm, S’ólh Téméxw, Skwxwú7mesh Úxwumixw, and səl̓ilwətaɁɬ peoples. It is our foundational belief that Black liberation can not and will not happen without the liberation of Indigenous peoples.
