Your Purpose is Beauty brings you eco/organic, luxury, and niche beauty product reviews and critique, as well as intellectual discussion about the beauty and alternative health industries. Hosted by independent beauty journalist and PhD sociologist Mercedes Lyson, this podcast will also explore why people have chosen beauty as their profession or passion through interviews with brand founders, beauty professionals, bloggers/influencers, and creatives. Exclusive episodes of this podcast are available at Patreon.com/lamouretlamusique, and Mercedes’ 6 years of eco beauty video content can be found at Youtube.com/lamouretlamusique/videos.

Episode 28: Taking A Moment From Beauty: Imperfect Reflections on Inequality and Race in America, Urban Soc, and Self-Reliance as Anti-Racism Practice

The title of today’s episode sums it up. I wanted to speak from both my heart, and my sociologically trained mind on current events. I also feel very strongly that self-reliance is an integral part of anti-racism and anti-inequality work for people with social and racial privilege. I touched on this at the end, but frankly it needs another whole episode to dig deeper.

Episode Notes:
For a copy of the urban sociology prelim exam I wrote in 2010 on neighborhoods and residential segregation referenced, a pdf will be available (for free) for the rest of the month on Patreon. After the end of June, I will move it behind the $3/month level pay wall so it will be available indefinitely to Patrons of L’Amour/Your Purpose is Beauty.
