Can one search for classic soul music on YouTube in Peace? Not if Donny Osmond has anything to say about it! This week, the SSN Crew discusses the whitewashing of R&B music by well-meaning white folks. In addition to those shenanigans, we also talk about FOX’s “The Gifted,” “black-ish” and “The Mayor.” In other music news, we discuss Little Richard claiming (again) to be #delivert from an alternative lifestyle and Terence Trent D’Arby adopting an alternate personae to deal with the pressures of fame. Finally, we explore the first inklings of the Harvey Weinstein scandal.
