Is It Okay To Be Scared of Fatherhood, Why Is Kirk Franklin Boycotting The Dove Awards, And Why Are Americans Afraid of Reparations? | ITBP S4E7

In this week’s episode we get a Black Box letter from a listener that’s expecting his first child, and he’s terrified.  So we examine the role that fear plays in Black fatherhood.  We also try and make sense of Kirk Franklin’s recent “Personal Boycott” of the Dove Awards.  How affective can it be?  And we ask why are some White Americans afraid of even having the discussion about reparations?  We discuss that, and more much.
