The Triple Po has returned from a one week hiatus. I had a lot going on, so I apologize, but now I am back! On the pre-ramble, I talk about my experience at Oktoberfest in Nashville with friend and former guest William and their boyfriend Dan. We had a great time drinking beer, as well as seeing street preachers and checking out the various and sundry tents selling their wares. I also talk about something a little less cheery, that being a White Supremacist protest that is coming up in Shelbyville, TN, on October 28th, and perhaps one in Murfreesboro. There has already been a counterprotest that has emerged, and I will be going to it. We have to show these assholes that we’re not going to stand by and let them spew their hate unchallenged.
On the palaver, I speak to one of my favorite people, Mandisa Thomas, who most of y’all probably already know as the founder and president of Black Nonbelievers Inc. We talk about her organization and how it was founded. We also talk about the need for allies to step up and get involved. Another subject we hit on is some of the negative feedback she has gotten from some of those in the Black community, including a confrontation at a conference where someone verbally attacked her. She also gives a statement regarding the travesty at Mythicist Milwaukee. There are plenty of other things that we discuss but you will have to listen to find out! Mandisa definitely walks the walk, and she is the closest things I have to a hero.
