We watched Jordan Peele's revolutionary horror film "Get Out" and asked what, if any, message about interracial relationships we were supposed to draw from a horror flick about whiteness. How generalizable is the subtext about trust and authenticity? What lessons should we take from the inclusion of an Asian and Latino character in a film that otherwise draws black and white boundary lines between good and evil? Joe and Brie are joined by original SWOTI members Lyse and Chef for a particularly energetic conversation!
For the last twenty minutes, Brie and Joe talk about their own interracial relationships. Brie discusses her own somewhat rare Asian Man/Black Woman pairing, and how dating a person of color differs from dating white men. Joe reflects on interracial dating in the context of a gay relationship, and unpacks anti-Asian prejudice within the community.
