Perspectives on Perspective

Mickey and Dave catch up on quarantine happenings from Verzuz battles to corporate statements of solidarity with Black Lives Matter. After a tribute to Philly's Malik B, who passed away on July 29, they discuss the academic publishing process of blind peer review. Should white scholars have to identify themselves when they write about Black culture, or does that defeat the purpose of blind review?
