The Mess Episode 2

The Absurdity of the TikTok Ban

Episode Description

Does TikTok really pose such a big security risk or is the U.S. Government trying to force a sale because they can’t control the platform?

Imara breaks down what you actually need to know about the so-called TiKTok ban with some cutting analysis and a little shade. Plus, she sheds light on why we shouldn’t be so surprised that public support for LGBTQ+ rights is on the decline before delving into Kansas’ effort to block trans people from having a driver’s license that accurately reflects their gender and the larger implications of that fight.
