Black & Yellow


Care, Custody, and Control

Between protesting, police brutality caught on tape (and being replayed countless times), and the impact of the pandemic, our mental health and emotional states are feeling taxed. If you are a Person Of Color, the constant headlines about racism and Other based violence can lead to a type of emotional distress known as racial trauma. On this episode, we bring on Yuna Youn (**first guest**) to discuss how we can cope with racial traumas, Yellow Peril Supporting Black Power, and how to shop for a therapist.
