First Name Basis Podcast

Jan 9, 2022

This past week we’ve had some deep and meaningful conversations about responding to the myth of “Black on Black crime.” As our conversations unfolded I realized that I left out one key detail, rich people commit crimes too! I made this clarification on our “Ask Jasmine” segment this week and wanted to make sure it had a permanent place in the podcast library. 


“Ask Jasmine” is a mini podcast segment that we send out to our Fam Favorites email list. Each week I choose one of your questions to answer, the question for this week is: How do you respond when someone says "Those communities are the ones who need the police the most"?
