On this episode of the Gap, Tammy and Althea discuss the online phenomenon, Blackfishing. It refers to non-Black people and influencers using extreme tanning, photo editing and cultural appropration to appear Black, mixed race, or racially ambiguous on social media. Don't do that! Especially if you're getting money and clout off of it.
Then, we revisit Mercury in Retrograde, the second of 2021. We talk about communication snafus, Tammy's meeting misunderstandings and Althea's uncertainty about a recent haircut. Plus, we hear from previous callers! Glad you're feeling better, Murray!
