Yo, Is This Racist? (also stylized as Yo! Is This Racist?) is a blog and associated podcast run by Andrew Ti, addressing questions from readers and listeners about whether given phenomena are examples of racism. In 2018, Tawny Newsome joined the podcast as co-host.
Ti, a writer for Comedy Central at the time, launched the Yo, Is This Racist? blog in November 2011 on Tumblr as the result of a conversation with a coworker about whether Yosemite Sam's oath "cotton-picking" is racist. Within 24 hours, the blog had nearly 2000 followers. The podcast was started a year later and was hosted by Earwolf from its creation. In November 2020, Ti and Newsome chose to leave the Earwolf network and launched Sub-Optimal Pods to host the podcast independently, a move which they said freed them from "trying to be the wokest show on a comedy network." - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yo,_Is_This_Racist%3F
