This week I discuss the removal of the confederate flag from the Mississippi state flag. And, I speak with Professor Molly Martin of Pennsylvania State University about her recent paper titled “Are Feminine Body Weight Norms Different for Black Students or in Black Schools? Girls’ Weight-Related Peer Acceptance across Racialized School Contexts.” The paper is to be published in the Journal of Health and Social Behavior, and is co-authored by Tori Thomas; Gary J. Adler, Jr.; and Derek A Kreager.

Segment 1 -- Molly Martin on “Are Feminine Body Weight Norms Different for Black Students or in Black Schools? Girls’ Weight-Related Peer Acceptance across Racialized School Contexts."

Segment 2 -- Sociological insights on the role and power of symbols, the meanings of the confederate flag, and the implications of symbolic change alone.
