Ahmaud Arbery was murdered back in February by white terrorists pretending to be cops. On part I of this multi-part series, I go over the circumstances surrounding this terrorist attack, and I discuss law enforcement’s attempt to cover it up.
Also, are you proud to be an American? Because I’m certainly not. I think this country fucking sucks! Just think about our collective response to the current pandemic: politicians tripping all over themselves and barely able to get stimulus checks out for citizens in need, the president waiting three months to take action and the resulting 100,000, preventable deaths that have occurred, and the trashy voters in this country that still continue to support this piece of garbage of a president. It’s all discussed on this week’s episode.
Black people’s reluctance to vote in the 2020 presidential election is understandable,￼ but not excusable. On this episode, I explain why it is necessary to vote in this election. Contrary to the popular “vote or die” narrative, political action is not limited to voting, and there are definitely valid reasons one may choose to not vote in a particular election. In this case however, any reason to not vote pales in comparison to reasons to vote. ￼Maybe you will agree, maybe you won’t, but I promise it’s worth a listen.
What is our cultural goal? This is the main problem with us black people, we’re not anchored in one major, cultural goal. Once we have a cultural goal, we can develop a code of behavior. I am writing about these things because I want to encourage us to collectively create a culture that is respected, and respectable. When I say respected, I mean black people not having to worry about being treated unfairly, or being subjected to unnecessary, unjust violence from law enforcement. Our culture has accepted mistreatment and abuse by others; once we are respected, the mistreatment and abuse will stop.
Capitalism has not been agreeable with us. The system isn’t inherently flawed, but the ownership class, and their sentiment towards workers, is however. On this episode, I go over capitalism as a system, and express ideas about what we should expect from any economic system, whether it’s capitalism or not. Hint: healthcare should be universal.

There is a lot of information being thrown at us in regard to COVID-19. To me however, the most important question is when will things get back to normal, normal being the ending of isolation and social distancing measures. On this episode, I remind you of exactly why this pandemic is the crisis the authorities are telling us it is, but in plain English, without all of the “extras.” Also, I go over the indicators that determine when we can safely resume our normal activities.
The Atlantic did a piece questioning if the U.S. has become a failed state. I make the case that it has.

Black people have an unhealthy relationship with conspiracy theories. On this episode I explain this unhealthy relationship and debunk the 5G coronavirus myth by using science. Don’t give credibility to white conspiracy theorists, their skepticism about government and authority comes from a bad place. These people are selfish: they purposely create and spread narratives that are not true for financial and professional gain at the expense of the truth, and it has gotten to the point now to where they’re literally costing lives.
One of my closest friends joins me later in the show for a general discussion about some current events, a lot it anchored in COVID-19.
