Andrew Ti and Christian Lander answer a listener’s question about white women wearing hajibs to make a statement, why Christian watched Sex and The City 2, and tell us if Lady Gaga is racist for wearing a burqa as a fashion statement. Please let us know about any other possible racist fashion statements by calling us at (323) 389-RACE.

Yo, Lander - check yourself! That rationale of "men are disgusting, this is a good reason for ladies to cover up" is the exact same attitude that enables rape and all kinds of bad shit. It gives men licence to be horrible, since the implicit message is that all men are creeps, and all women know this, and any woman that doesn't dress to protect herself from that is asking for it. Not necessarily saying anything about burkas/hijabs/niqabs, but that rationale is WACK AS FUCK.

I'm sensing potential for a spin-off podcast, "Yo, is This Rapist?"

Are we sure Lady Gaga was wearing a hijab? She just might of run out of costume ideas and just threw on whatever because she was running late.
