I talk Richard Bronson and commercial space travel on this episode. The media is trying to influence us into accepting this as some kind of amazing feat. I say it’s bullshit.
In the latest news on the battle of the space billionaires, Richard Bronson has become the first of the three men (Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos) to send rich people to space to float around for 5 minutes for $200,000. I believe just around half of the world’s population lives on less than five dollars a day. God Bless America.
Have you been following the drama unfolding at ESPN? ESPN journalist Rachel Nichols inadvertently exposed herself as a racist, after victimizing a Black colleague of hers at the network. It only takes five seconds for a white person to practice racism. It’s so easy. This is why I say “we have no white allies.”
There is a new book called “Ladies Leading” that has been receiving some press this week. This book highlights the rise of women in management in newsrooms across the country. Some of you may get the idea that Black women are becoming more powerful from reading this book. Well I hate to tell you, but it’s not true. There is no such thing as a powerful black person. If this upsets you, then do something about it. Work to end the racist system we’re all subjected to.
From Richard Bronson and commercial space travel, to accounts of racism towards Black players on England’s soccer team, it’s all covered on this episode.
A good companion episode to this one can be heard here. The format is a little different, but the focus is on news stories.
