Join us as we talk to blogger The Oreo Experience about what it’s like being, well, an Oreo. TOE opens up about what it’s like being a person of color who is white on the inside. She shares her thoughts on everything from Tyler Perry to classical music and hair.

Oreo: Slang: Disparaging and Offensive. a black person who is regarded as having adopted the attitudes, values,and behavior thought to be characteristic of middle-class white society, often at the expense of his or her own heritage.

“My grandparents have really cool recessive genes for black people. They have this rich, dark skin with bright blue eyes.

I also have an interesting recessive gene for black people: the one that makes me love Renaissance Fairs, Kristen Chenowith and cat shows.”

    This episode was oddly unrelated to anything film oriented. This is a great and informative podcast about film making. I’d hate to see it continue to veer off topic as was the case in this episode.
