ATR 111 – Kirstie Alley, Sotomayor, interracial roommates, Birth of a Nation

by Carmen Van Kerckhove

Addicted to Race is New Demographic’s podcast about America’s obsession with race. Here’s a rundown of what you’ll find in this episode:

What does the recent Twitter exchange between actress Kirstie Alley and media assassin Harry Allen tell us about this country’s discourse on race? Is the brouhaha surrounding Sonia Sotomayor’s nomination indicative of anxiety on the part of white males that they are an endangered species? Can dorming with a student of another race turn you less or more racist? And why is DJ Spooky’s “(Re)Birth of a Nation” experiment an epic fail? Carmen Van Kerckhove, Tami Winfrey Harris, and Andrea Plaid discuss.

Addicted to Race is broadcast live every Sunday afternoon at 12 pm Eastern. You can listen live on our BlogTalkRadio page and call in by dialing 347-996-3958.
