Joe Rogan under fire for segment on who should be considered ‘Black’

Joe Rogan has suggested “the term black is weird” and sparked outrage with a discussion over who it should or should not refer to.

Rogan was joined on his podcast by YouTube personality and clinical psychologist Jordan Peterson when their conversation drifted onto the topic of race.
