Ep. 003:The NAACP vs. the Soda Ban

gulp.jpg

In this episode we discuss the strange alliance between the NAACP and the American Beverage Association in their fight against NYC's controversial soda ban and ponder:

  • Is the NAACP a corporate mouthpiece?
  • How has this unholy alliance affect their brand?
  • From whom does the NAACP derive their funding and how does this alter their mission?
  • As non-members are we the real culprits?
  • Do Black folks need a new type of organization to represent our needs and wants?
  • Is modern Black leadership just a cult of personality?
  • Is the soda ban an assault on civil right or civil liberties?
  • Where on earth is the Black community and who speaks for us?

And much much more...

About Our Guest

JaeSandersRegularBlackWomanB.jpg

“Jae” prefers Internet anonymity like most cubicle Negros. BUT, has a lot to say about most things she knows and prefers to stay away from things she doesn’t know much about. “Kain’t be lookin aw ignant.” Jae is 34, married, a Financial Analyst, and the mom to a dog and cat. She enjoys all things crazy, especially pushing her physical limits and has been a member of the cult of Crossfit for about 2 years. She’s a runner, snowboarder, and often partakes in those crazy Tough Mudder, Spartan, and Zombie races.  She’s training for a marathon, taking place next month and is currently taking golf and guitar lessons. (Heavy sigh…..sure would be nice to re-direct all of this energy into reapplying to grad school.) Her guilty pleasure are those damn games played on her cell phone.
