4.5 - "Well That Escalated Quickly" by Franchesca Ramsey Feat. Odochi of "The Five Fifths Podcast"
Welcome to Bri Books, today we’ll be discussing Franchesca Ramsey’s book, ‘Well That Escalated Quickly’ with Odochi (Ode) of The Five Fifths podcast, the proverbial middle finger to the Three-Fifths Compromise.
What's The Three-Fifths Compromise? Did you sleep through the “slavery lesson” in school? Allow us to refresh your memory of the very REAL history of the Three Fifths Compromise, and how Odochi's podcast is fighting back to reclaim all fractions of humanity.
Who is Franchesca Ramsey?
In 2011, when “Shit Girls Say” took off on YouTube, Franchesca created her own iteration, “Shit White Girls Say to Black Girls.” In the book, Francesca traces her YouTube success trajectory. I really loved that Franchesca didn't shy away from the reality that it takes a long time to accumulate traction. She’d made over a hundred videos BEFORE “Shit White Girls Say to Black Girls.” It’s not lost on Franchesca that the quality and caliber of work speaks for itself when the time comes. After “Shit White Girls Say to Black Girls,” Franchesca was offered a book deal. But she didn’t jump on that opportunity, because she was setting herself UP for greatness instead of jumping ON whatever came her way.
