TBWZ: May I Have Thy Dance
What's good yall!! We're back with a new episode on an interesting topic. We discuss the "consent to catch the twerk". Crazy right? Lol. A conversation was had about how back in the day in the clubs or events we attended, that if we would go up behind a woman and place our pelvis on them without asking that essentially it was sexual assault. This conversation led to a discussion about the black, white and grey area of it all and the consent to dance in the club and what it looks like. Again we're no experts in this thing, just our thoughts but was a very interesting debate. Niecy held the ladies down!  We also talk about recent college bribery scandal. We discuss would we do the same for our children if we had the money and how we already knew this was happening since the dawn of time.  Check it out!
