The athletic director of Albany State University, a Georgia-based HBCU, is resigning after offering a scholarship to a white football player who said the n-word on video.

Award winning author Deesha Philyaw joins Damon for a conversation to talk about the n-word, how they both learned how to use the n-word to use it, and how they use it today.

Then, writer and podcast host Panama Jackson, comes on to answer some uncomfortable truths around interracial relationships.
