The Black Myths Podcast


May 25, 2022

In part 2 of the myth Rooting for Everybody Black (Pt.3 overall of the Myth of Trickle Down Blackness), we continue our talk with Georgetown University Assistant Professor of Philosophy, Olúfẹ́mi O. Táíwò, about his new book Elite Capture: How the Powerful Took Over Identity Politics (And Everything Else).

This episode picks up right where we left off. Continuing with elite capture as our philosophical lens, we discuss the pitfalls of two additional popular phrases "All Skin Folk Ain't Kinfolk" and "Crabs in a Barrel." We also discuss if elite capture helps produce "bad people."
