Black People: Dope By Default?

Swag. Chill. Dope. The Bomb. Breezy. Fly. All of these words are synonyms for the word “cool”. These adjectives are also commonly assigned to Black People when describing how cool they are. Why is this? Is it because Black People are predisposed to being dope that the word “cool” is simply not good enough? Are Black people born naturally cool? In this episode, Jack and Alana (inspired by a Trevor Noah comedy special) discuss the perceived effortless cool possessed by Black People. Alana will try her best to be as unbiased as possible.
