Black lives matter, now and always. Since long before the murder of George Floyd late last month, black people in the United States have been systemically marginalized, oppressed, and killed by white people in positions of power. The act of murder that was committed by police officers in Minneapolis on May 25th, 2020 is the direct result of the white supremacy that continues to pervade our government, society, and country as a whole. The insane lack of accountability that police officers have for their violent actions is part of the system we must fight to change, as are so many other institutions that discriminate against people for the color of their skin. We stand with all those who protest police brutality and other injustices, who risk their lives even during the worst pandemic the world has seen in a century. We stand also with the victims of violence, prejudice, and oppression--those whose names are known, and the many whose names will never be known because of the same system that sought to bring them down in the first place. No justice, no peace. In an interview-style episode, Reuben is joined by special guest Francine to talk about Jamaican spices, seasonings, and cooking. The conversation ranges from the meaning of spice and seasoning in our lives to common and lesser-known Jamaican spices and dishes.
