Hi and welcome to Kaleidoscope Teen Magazine’s podcast. My name is Madalyn Salkowsky and I am a human being. First I'd like to start off by saying how proud I am of you for tuning into this podcast and wanting to further your knowledge on some problems in the world today. This podcast will be about societal and systemic racism and how we as Americans can be the best versions of ourselves.

In this episode, we will talk about the importance of solidarity between people of color in order to dismantle the roots of all of this: white supremacy. We will place the Black Lives Matter movement in the context of everything else happening in the world right now, and learn to stop playing the Oppression Olympics.

In this episode, we will break down what it really means to be an ally as an Asian-American. Now that we know the history of prejudice between Asian-Americans and Black-Americans and understand why the arguments made against allyship aren’t valid, how do we, as Asian-Americans, actually become better allies and hold ourselves accountable? This episode will talk about what allyship looks like and how to practice accountability, from my perspective as a South Asian at a predominantly white school.

Specifically for Asian-Americans:
- Tazrean Hossain
In this episode, we will debunk the arguments that Asian-Americans often use against Black Lives Matter, such as “What have they done for us?”, “We worked hard to succeed, why can’t they?”, and “We’re minorities too, so how could we even help?” through the lens of the model minority myth. We will learn about how Black activists have aided Asian-Americans in achieving civil rights. This episode will give you talking points for your Asian family members who don’t want to support Black Lives Matter and prove why arguments against Asian-American allyship are futile.
- Tazrean Hossain
In this episode, we will unpack the relationship between the Asian-American and Black-American communities, investigating the history of anti-Asian racism and anti-blackness. In doing so, we will understand what happened with George Floyd and Tou Thao and how our past and present continues to be rooted in white supremacy. This episode will give you the foundation needed to inform what we, Asian-Americans, must do as allies to the Black community.
- Tazrean Hossain
This podcast is about Mindy Kaling’s new Netflix hit, Never Have I Ever, and its role in South Asian representation in the media. In this episode we discuss what worked in season one and what didn’t, and what we hope to see next season!
Hey everybody! For KTM’s first podcast, we will be talking about colorism and the media’s contribution to colorism. Feel free to leave comments down below and thank you for listening in advance. Follow us on IG @KaleidoscopeTeen and stay tuned for more podcasts.
As you’re listening, you will hear that I make generalizations about certain groups of people. Understand that I am not speaking for everyone in that group and that everyone does not do the specific thing that I am speaking about. I tend to generalize when I speak and I apologize if I offend anyone. Please leave feedback in the comments so I can make my content better for you all. With love, Alisha Joseph.
