The Philadelphia Eagles Soap Opera Continues
"Not a lack of things to talk about for for a football team that won four games is in a limited and is eliminated. We got the playoffs starting We gotta lot Torto when it comes to the Philadelphia Eagles, because this soap opera continues, right story lines continue to be churned out each and every day something new. Coming. And then on Tuesday, so the latest on Tuesday was there was the Jeff McClain report. Came out Tuesday morning That said some of the Eagles players had to be restrained in going after Doug Peterson on the sideline when he decided when, when the decision was made, I'm going to start not going to say when he decided I'm going to say when the decision was made. To pull Jalen hurts. I heard a few people today. Actually took, you know tonight as well. Mention How You know how Doug Peterson What a disgrace! He Woz making that decision. Let's just start with that if you really think that it was Doug Peterson's call. Yeah, you could say he's spineless. You could say he's too much of a company man. You could say all those kind of things. But if you don't think that this Woz a decision that was made during the week prior to the game You're not really paying attention. The way this thing works with this organization. This was 100% a call from on high And as I said in the post game show. I'm not outraged. Like everybody else. Like like the majority of people are. I shouldn't say everybody. The majority of people are about this. I think the handling other was clumsy. To say the least. Like you're either in or you're out. What you could have done in the beginning of the week, or at least throughout the week or even later in the week. Whatever. If you were Doug Peterson, you could've put it out there that day. Listen, we're out of it. We're gonna play hard on the field, but we're gonna take a look at some people that maybe haven't had an opportunity this season, including Nate said felt Could've done that. Could avoid a lot of this. You could've very simply started him at the beginning of the third quarter. My theory is With the amount of players that the Eagles had inactive who could have played by the way? They thought they'd be getting killed in the game. They weren't getting killed in the game. In fact, it was close. It was a three point game. And that really put a cramp. In the game plan. And Doug could have pulled him earlier for sure. And they would have avoided a lot of this. But for me If this is a one o'clock game Everybody's losing their mind. And I gotta tell you I was on during the Christmas and New Year break, Probably 12 out of 13 days, 11 hours 13 days somewhere around there. If I put a percentage on the amount of calls from people That wanted them to win. I put it in the like 15 percentile. The large majority of the calls that I got. What if the Eagles to lose and get the best draft pick because they had nothing to play for? And that tune has changed for a lot of folks and I'm not sure exactly why was it just the aesthetic of watching it. Here's the thing. I get it if you're a player and you're angry You know, we're gonna play the mile Sanders cut. He was over the mid day guys on Tuesday. And he expressed what I'm sure was the sentiment with a lot of guys. Mile. Sanders wasn't on the field. He was one of the inactives. But if you're Jason Kelsey, if you're Brandon Graham You know, filling your veteran player. Sure I get it. You know, putting your health on the line to not win. I understand it. But if You thought

How Does Captain America's Shield Work?
"The official marvel comics database says that Captain America's shield is a metal disc that's approximately two point five feet in diameter and weighs twelve pounds. But Rhett Lane at wired magazine did some math and figured out that it would be more likely to weigh forty three point nine pounds despite the shield being made of a unique alloy combining vibrant. NEOM, which is. A fictional metal steel in an unknown third component. Elaine also figured out that the density of the shield would be somewhere between eight, thousand, seven, hundred, sixty, seven, and four, thousand, three, hundred, eighty, three kilograms per meter cubed. That is somewhere between the density of iron and titanium. Now in the Captain America Comics Story goes that Dr. Myron McLean was attempting to replicate Hercules Golden Mace fusing. Vibrant NEOM with an experimental iron alloy some say it was a steel alloy but even McLean didn't know what it was because he fell asleep when an unknown catalyst was introduced to the process he was never able to duplicate the process. So the government painted the disk and gave it to Captain America. But how would you forge such a thing? Especially since metallurgy is so complicated just The forging temperature alone depends on the materials carbon content. It's alloy composition maximum plasticity in the amount of reduction required. Was it heated by induction or by continuous fuel fired furnaces with material this unique you'd have to carefully control the heating process. Now, Ford ability is how easy or difficult material resists de formation and since Captain America's shield is indestructible, it would have to be a very Narrow forging temperature range meaning it could only be forged for a short time after heating with metallurgical factors like crystal structure chemical composition in grain-size at play the only way McLean could have diminished their influence would-be by adding alloying wants possibly compounds that easily dissolved with the metal. There are all types of elements that could have been introduced, but it's likely the captain America's shield was forged. Like a super alloy, this is how metallurgist refer to iron base nickel base in cobalt based alloys. Specifically, the ones that offer very high strength at high temperatures. These really high strength metals and iron based grades are the least difficult wants to work with. So that would narrow down Mcclain's experimental alloy to iron super-alloys are really difficult to forge because of their narrow temperature range you can't. Even use regular sizing presses in hammers on them because they will deform. They even wear down the tools designed for forging them pretty easily. They're also extremely expensive like ten times. The price of carbon steel sounds a lot like captain America's shield right. But how do we explain the shields ability to absorb kinetic energy supposedly from the vibe rhenium in the alloy usually materials absorb kinetic energy. Through other mechanisms like plastic or elastic deformation or dynamic fluid flow but cap shield doesn't seem to be an elastic metric material and it's not organic like polyurethane in the movies it actually seems to reflect vibration rather than absorb it like when thor hits with Mueller in that first avengers movie and the shockwave flattens a whole forest. Perhaps that was because the shield reached its absorption limit. Another thing that's tough to explain his how aerodynamic the shield is. If it really weighed forty three point, nine pounds, it would be difficult to throw even for a guy in peak physical condition like Steve Rogers the comics Tony Stark actually puts electromagnet under the shield to help control it in mid flight but captain America later ditched them because they upset the shields natural balance it seems like the soldier and the shield are made for each other.
Kentucky Native George Clooney Says He's "Ashamed" of Breonna Taylor
"Of course running so high across the country today after no officers were charged directly related to the killing of Brianna Taylor took testers hit the streets after the news broke the grand jury indicted a former police officer on three counts of wanton endangerment for firing into neighboring apartments and the other officers were charged and Louisville, Kentucky where Brianna was shot the protests took a violent turn to police officers were shot and suffered non-life-threatening injuries. A lot to unpack here. How do you feel about all of this? Both of you? The saddest part about all of it is that I am not shocked that this happened. I'm in shock that I'm not shocked and whenever you look at the footage from the night before or two days or four and they're boarding up downtown and they're putting road blockades before the verdict even came in something that was honestly supposed to be stay hush-hush between jurors and a judge. You just know what to expect. You know, my people understand what to expect and that's the saddest part. Yeah, and what's really sad to me is that, you know people on the internet and Instagram often go to this thing where they say. Oh, well, you know, this person was a bad person. We shouldn't be making this person a hero this twenty-six-year-old woman was a front line worker who was doing the most legal thing that an American Canyon. She was sleeping and getting ready for work and people barged into her home and shot her and there's Justice for the wall of her neighbor before there's Justice for her. So you're telling black Americans and black children that your life is less valuable than a plywood wall. Yeah, that's what the issue is. And I know we have to go to break and we're going to be back cuz I know we have a lot more to talk about so you guys join us. We're going to keep this conversation going. Welcome back to daily pop as we mentioned before the break. No officers were charged directly related to the killing of Brianna Taylor protesters hit the streets across the country celebrities like George Clooney Oprah Winfrey and Alicia Keys are all speaking out Kentucky's attorney general warned people not to be influenced by celebrities and social media influencers off. So he says don't understand the case and their Community but George Clooney who's a Kentucky native wrote an open letter saying he is quote ashamed of this decision off, you know, you and I all three of us have had such open conversations about this. What are you guys think when you see something like this after six months of trying to get jobs or somebody? Yeah. It's obviously not served. The whole thing is outrageous. It's outrageous. It's insane and the contrary to how you felt. I'm still shocked and maybe that's my whiteness wage. That I'm still shocked that this didn't Justice wasn't served here. I really thought it was going to be and I saw that it was not gonna happen and you know, and I've been following the case. It's just shocking to me that It ever happened. Honestly, I have to say that there's no justice served. I I kind of have to second what what Justin said, I'm not shocked at all and to put it pretty blatantly and off early. If this was me there would have been Justice served if I was if I was shot sleeping in my bed. All three officers would be their licenses would have been revoked. They would have never been able to be police officers. Again. They have City wage had to pay my family a tremendous amount of money. Like we are not treated equally and yesterday, I mean, I just didn't I we spoke a lot about this before we started the show this morning and we kind of got into a little bit of sort of the racial Justice is yesterday with stassi and everything and I said this to you before the fact that stassi Schroeder has had more of a negative impact to her life off. Okay and has lost every stream of income because she made some ignorant horrific comments and I'm sure she's ashamed of and the police officers who killed and shot somebody while she wage Sleep in her own residence that she pays rent for okay walk free with not a single problem in site can still continue to make money can still connect to pursue the job but they've trained for it is effing bananas. But this is way this world works. This is why people are calling for police reform and I'm going to let you guys found something the person who brushes my hair in the morning for two seconds every day had to go through 1600 out 1600 hours of training before he could touch a follicle on my head, right and police officers go through less. Yeah the end of the day I want to urge everybody. I know November 3rd is coming up and yeah, you guys should get to the polls. But also when your local channels, and your District elections come up and your state elections come up, I want you to Google the people who are running for those offices and I want you to look at what they said or didn't say wage. About what happened to Brianna Taylor McClain are George Lloyd Wright? Those people stay quiet throughout those whole things your answer is deafening. Yeah and did not want those people presiding over and making decisions about your life. That's a question that you have to ask yourself because that woman was twenty-six years old that could have been your daughter and that could have been your thoughts

Clearly as much as Mike but I, don't know man I've always. I've always believed that. We're. We're meant to eat me like I don't I don't think I. Don't think it's anything wrong with eating meat, I think it's a natural thing and the reason why I think is a natural thing is because of. Of animals that eat meat like they killed a they. They eat certain things to survive, and so Emma it. Truly just how objects view, it's just like. What's do animals cook meat? I mean should they should? They should learn. Bearish. Fish big. I don't know I mean. Is this the I? Look at it as like a circle of life. Right like you know certain things happen to. To to keep the circle of life going or whatever like like vultures, right vultures eats Carrying like yeah, they eat shit, but I mean they eat like like decay and all that type of. But they sit it out clean North Y'all know. What's up? And I just had I just wanted to mention this before I forgot I. Don't disagree with what you're saying. I do think the the way and the ethics behind how people consume your trash. I think it's completely different. If you go to like in my experience Jamaica, or like a quote, Unquote Third World whatever right like like Ecuador like somewhere somewhere else outside, of America and you catch a chicken, who was just? Living it's best life or whatever, and then you know you, you kill it, and then you eat it. There's not a lot of hormones and stuff like that so I think people's. What's the word I'm looking forward? Not Dependence but. People rely like the way that people are committed to eating meat And how they don't really think about the processes and things that are goes through first vegetables to you know what I'm saying. The way in which how we consume, and I think fucked up. I don't think it's bad to eat meat, but I think people should be more conscious about what they put in their bodies, and where they get it from and the processes that it goes through. Vegetables and stuff too but yeah I mean I think it is better for you when you. On the balance that's I don't agree with the way we the way we do. Eat Meat like like I will feel a lot better about it. If I was like a hunter I, if I lived like if if I had no choice but to hunt for my own food, grandma, own plants and fruits like I would feel a lot better. I'm not saying the way me going to McDonald's or something like that I. I don't think that's right. You know what I'm saying I just. I don't know that's the part. That's the party struggle with it. That's the part I struggle with. You know what I'm saying. Because I know how that stuff is made, and I know that is you know? What I don't like about it, but as far as being a meat eater. I don't I don't feel bad about that. Is this the the places I go to get my food firm? That has me I definitely. Don't think you should put yourself in the same conversation as a lion. Like a lion killing an animal that is circle of life book you are doing now is not the circle of life. I do agree with you. I understand what you're saying about. You know if you were out hunting and all that stuff. Yeah, you're living off the land where it's understandable. But I get a little bothered when I. don't even get in these conversations because I i. don't I've done this for twenty seven. And for a long time out of those twenty years it was me arguing against people about why and I just don't that anymore but I do internally bother when people will try to make the argument. Will you try to take me out of Tiger's mouth like well first of all I, don't know any tigers are, but second of all know that that's that's stupid. That makes no sense does audit. Labor. But. Work with no issues. Arm torn off I definitely take. You might be worse. Chicken out of cans, mouth by losing more than. I'll. Right, but Nah I mean tastes like chicken. I don't think that it's the same thing because you're not living off the land you're. You're really hurting the land. Because these things these these the meat that you're getting it. It's fucking poisoned. The animals are in absolutely terrible conditions. Before you guys even get to them and you don't even know. Like there's such a low quality. That is like upheld in these slaughterhouses that you're getting your meat from so all of it is just really fucking gross, so throwing the whole nature part into it I don't think it's wise if you're trying to make that kind of argument. What are you say when people I? Don't know if anybody artists with you, but? When I say that plants are living like what is your argument on that? My argument is Rita fucking book. That's my argument. It's silly. When people will be like well, do IQ air moves, but you're tuned. Plants when the plant decides to cry. Okay when a plant develops a brain that can process pain. Okay, until then fuck off, not you of course. I, said, not you. Talking about you, but I've heard that plenty of times because you know Broccoli has a central nervous system, but it doesn't have a brain, so people are like well. It's evolving and at some point, Broccoli and cauliflower should. Pay Bra rose. Grow rapidly Tell me about it, but I'm just like come on man like because some people really feel for their plants like I'm becoming one of those people..

"His. Campaign? I'm. Glad I still voted for me to meet. Almost did. Not Vote. I don't want my vote to just be like. It's like you got to vote your conviction in a primary. Yeah, because I mean look if. Biden's already. It is going to be Biden's versus trump. But if I don't have to vote for his ass just yet I'm not going to. I'm awful team like I, thank you. So if I can say you know what I still try for burning burning books up to the knows though right, because that's how they determine like determined like where where they're winning right the winning. That's fine, so so so let's get you not doing it now. Say when you do it later. It don't matter. There's another different race completely. Feel Awfully affair. Bernie more votes in this than Biden on no, that's what I was thinking that I mean. So what would happen at the nothing happens because a bird. He doesn't WANNA come back and run. He's not gonNA. Come back and run. because. I mean I honestly I still think that he was one of the only people that could be trump. I don't see Joe Biden beaten drunk I just don't. I could not. Really Yeah. How wish! I really wish I had that kind of optimism because I, did too I. Just I can't. Even imagine going to the polls and seeing Joe Biden's name and being like art. There is a lot of people that don't like trump anymore, because it is does all this. A lot of less money like Republicans like yeah. They are so how'd you? And and that's why trump if you'll notice, he's always doing playing the hits immigration. white supremacy. He has obamacare now in the middle of a fucking pandemic. You're talking about and then obamacare and replace it with them. He has nothing no, because it's a campaign was based off. The economy and economy is fuck right now. About Eighty. Ken Nobody fix it. And now it's the second house of extinction of the first wave. Initially, how do you feel? key chalance bottoms is kind of like the. Don't believe it a vice president and that. I have not yeah. No. She needs to say I. Don't want to give to Stacey. I'm just saying I. Don't know Damn Keefe. Governor again and he running for governor again. Kamala he's a cop. Camelot, whatever man she is, we say. No it. I forgot that I did too. I did too I think that's going I think her. Being a cop is going to help. Though, because biding his room I told Ya. If you just did everything right which he hasn't, he can win, but he's not at all. Going, talking about giving the police more money and everybody's saying. So thing but the reason why part of the reason why? He was a pig for Obama because he was a pro police. And that brought Obama or gotTa Obama the police of votes so he can't go out here and say defend the police, but having A. Kamala only ticket could help because not going say to fund the believe. Is She saying no, she's not, but he won't. But that a further help him because trump is talking about trump is on that same wave as well so trump more than like we'll get a police votes right now, because he still somewhat pro-police I know, he signed that thing that they may maybe going to bring up right About. Boys, are you saying that? Because now you have Biden, who is pro-police and have Kamala who is pro-police that they're gonNA? pull the coupon special police voting like Nah I. Don't know he needs some like elise. Votes ain't going to break this race. It. Now because it's going to keep people from wanting to the progressives who don't want trump to win. They're not going to want to vote for somebody. WHO's Pro pro-police right now? The police right now needs somebody to vote for, and and so if you of Biden and whoever else say as it is Stacey Abrams if you have vitamin Stacey Abrams, talking about defunding believes they. Oh, fuck, no, let me get my vote trump, but that's not what's going to break this race. The police vote is not what's going to break this race. That's what I'm saying. I don't see I. don't see the police being able to push either one of these people over the top. Maybe I'm being naive but. Maybe just because I dislike cops and I would like to magnitude stupid to know how to go down and. Shoot people because that's all they're good for. Yeah either way. Kisha! SIT DOWN! Please will need this. Is Kiesha row we. Want, stacy I'd rather have her, I like nothing stays ago. She's GonNa run against again in two years. She governor cease. Two days ago said and then we'll jump into communist, so let's say Joe. Biden search for a running mate is down to the final, Four Elizabeth Warren Kamala Harris Kisha lands bottoms and vowed emmys. Wow, who's that I? Don't know when either. I don't think Elizabeth GonNa Make It. He's going to have to pick a black woman, so stacy's out. People Lance bought Yano she. Run she going to run for governor again. Popular enough for him to be looking at her as a vice president I. Don't know. What, the cops in Atlanta say was ever since you fucked up. What the COPS in Atlanta. But I mean like. Why would he think that she would be running? The only to help him is Elizabeth and camera. But people do people like her? No. Not really so, why would he pick people? I think we'll Kisha. She has the celebrities that backer. Killer Mike and I think block celebrity. What I'm saying is Stan Her fucking entourage I. Think Black Celebrities would backer just cause, but they would backstage Abrams to because Dave. Abrams at least has the victim vote the like look what happened with me? and. She's never stopped fighting. Out when you know, there's like a little thing that she needs to say real quickly. She bounces. Think that's probably what it is. He's looking at I. Think he's looking at someone. That's not very confrontational. Look! Yeah, yeah! I think he's looking at the look the name. Yeah. That's what happened here. See like Oh. We gotTA. We got a mayor name hee-soo. Like you know what I'm saying like people the. I'd never thought about that. Apparently they kinda tight. They are yes. They started building a relationship. They said since which is unfolded publicly improperly censor endorsement last year. I think she's a good look for him way. I agree I would rather stacey exactly Sophie Sophie and she a good look for ice. No. She's not gonNA. Make me one of over him wrong. Oh she got. About here. I, just I'm done. Yeah. That's about. and. Trump the fuck out. Semi Sam, Bahir, I'll take whoever over trump. That's what I'm saying. I'm just not happy about looking towards four years of Joe Biden and key chalance bottoms. Is just like Oh look. You're probably. For like two years, he'll quit. He'll say something stupid as hell. The president is no I cannot fuck that and. So? We're going to wrap up. But really talk. That is like a concern for people is that? Will he make it? And that's why the VP pick is so important point because they have to be able to step into the role. So that's why I think Elizabeth through ran we'll. We'll be a good one, but if bottom really wants to win, he's going to have to pick a person of color and Carlo would be the better John Hundred. I cannot believe we've gotten to displace Wa fucking. Hate Democrats because they're they're. They're desperate at this point. I'm exactly, but it's like we fucked won't say week is audio fuck..

"TRUMP IS GONNA. Be like goes to. Think about think about think about the ego, though his is so big, would he be willing to risk losing to of all people? Joe Body where he want to suffer that having eagles. Does, because he he, he had, he had a forty and slip where he said that. Joe Biden is probably going is going to be your next president. Maybe because people hate me. He said that own Hannity it came out of his mouth and I think that's like the second time. He's Joe. Biden is going to be that reverse long. Knows that the majority of his constituency is a bunch of fucking idiots and y'all gonna get mad I. don't care. You're fucking idiot. I think trump knows that. Say Again I'm sorry. They do so. I don't think that he looked. He's smart enough to know that he says these kind of things. It's going to scare people. They're going to like Oh shit. This could really happen, so we'd better get out there and make sure Armar leader doesn't lose. I like that you're taking him on face value I. Don't give me neither I'm not I'm not. I'm just wondering like I'm thinking about the eagle part like. Is he willing to take that chance because I think the the new report came out at first, he was like enor- and all of this is like Oh. You Know I. The hidden voters are out there on the silent majority that nobody talking to. They're going to vote for me this time. But I think political reported that he's finally admitted that he's losing this race. He's right now like you like trump hardy never admitted that before his his thinking. Well before he became president, it wasn't projected that he was going to win. and that's what everybody's saying now. That's why I'm not even even thinking that he's thinking. Lose now. It's not about. It's not about him. Losing is about whether or not he acquit because he thinks he'll lose now, thank. You have an ego. Your Ego is not going to allow you to quit. You rather give beat like you you. You'RE GONNA go to you're. Finish get beat trump. Is that type of person though I think so? How do we can announce I think? Before. That I could see trump. Like talking about the impeachment thing. Say I feel like I was see trump quit before. Yes, yes, he now I agree with because because at that point is like we'll. Proceedings have already started. You might be on your way out. disagree with you can is I think that trump is such a megalomaniac that he doesn't really think. That! Biden is going to win this, so he's not gonNA. quit. It'd be dope. Afi Did because then it would be between him and there's like some libertarian woman who. I. Don't know if I'm drinking the KOOL aid. She seems alright. Fuck with Libertarians like that, but she seems cool like she actively came out and said that she didn't support legalizing sex work and I'm like. fucking. Hell!.

"Is done conversation. This is this is. This is worse. It's just like he got plenty of time to recover, but we saw what happened with the Oklahoma thing. There's the rambling answer. He had Hannity about his second term. You know goals or objectives that went nowhere, and then now there was a report came out that Russia put a hit out on our soldiers. He knew about and then do shit I thought that was fake. The new Rotan's put it out. Has it been confirmed to be fake yet? Yeah, I thought I thought. You know what never mind just running so I don't I don't know I saw it yesterday and I thought. Maybe it was just Russia's. Your Russia's denying it. So what I know now is that Russia denied it, but they're also saying that it probably went only so far that it never reached. Putin's death, so he has no knowledge of it, which is another way you can talk around it and trump, and then we're saying the same thing. but now that covert Kinda dying down there talks about what to do with this sort of expanding, so we go is denial denial denial, and then you try to spend it. To work in your favor, but people kinda take this sort of stuff series, but either way. You got bad polling. You've got cove it like you fucked up all the way around so where he'd be willing to accept a loss or where he just like site, health reasons and say I'm GonNa not pursue reelection.

"At what point? 'cause I think we had a conversation about Kevin Hart and I wanNA sales on the stance of like look, Dude, apologize for. He's obviously moved on. Why are we still holding this man to this? Whatever and I I think I'm still with that standards personally yet you know. One interesting thing happened like somebody, DM me and I won't say his twitter everything but I'm very grateful for this person, but. They were like you'll Mike. Go back and delete these tweets and they were tweet from like. Nine years ago I went back and looked, and it was me using the word tranny not in an aggressive or mean way, but that was me using that word as a description of person now. I did delete some of them, but some of them I left up and like there was one specific one where I said somebody acknowledged. Back in the day I, did use that word but I didn't know it was a slur. And the craziest thing is like I had I know this sounds like a white guy. Saying I have black friends. I had a couple of friends who were trans. They and they used that word and I used that word in a way of Oh. Yeah I I saw person. She's a tranny. Right? Okay, cool! It was never like Oh my God look at this fucking disgusting check. It was never that. And unfortunately by friend, who I was around at the time, she passed, so I can't ask her like. Why did you never tell me? Like you shouldn't use that I had literally no idea until after that. And when I learned that that word is actually a negative slur. It never left my mouth again never. bbut. The DUDE DM me or the person. I'm not sure if it was A. Identified as I have no idea but the person that Dan was like Yo. You know how it goes. It doesn't matter Mike. Somebody could look at that and be like Bam. I would have no recourse, yeah. But. Is that necessarily fair? Because clearly now anyone that knows me or watches one or two videos would no I would never use that word ever. So. It's like how long does it take before you can like. Let that kind of shit go! There is no universal fix for it. It's up to the person and the individual, and also the actions at that person has taken since then so there's. There's no universal spoarer than that kind of goes against the second part of your statement. Because because I agree with you, because that's like, bless like why people asking well black people. How long before we can stop feeling bad for our ancestors did but but. I'm kind of asking you guys as individuals I guess like. How long does it take for you? To be like okay well, that person clue doesn't think that way anymore. So I'm not sweating what they did five six seven years ago. I'm really forgiving so. It doesn't last long for me at all like if I can. If I can feel that, you know you feel sorry for something and you really didn't mean you don't mean it anymore, and you've learned from it. You Brown form it. How do you sometimes like I know? Sometimes, it's just fill. Sometime. You just can tell like when somebody's sincere, because when somebody when he in business someone that you know or just like, if you just saying someone that's been apologetic and you. Is basically well Tonja earlier like people. That I've been around people that I've looked up to in called friends. Are Now, getting fucking rape allegations, and they'll come out and say well. I'm sorry I feel. I feel bad about it. Okay, but are you only sorry feeling bad about it because you were called out wor- because you never mentioned before the thing with me, his mentioned this before that I volunteered the information and say yo I used to say this word because I didn't know it was a bad word. Now that I know I've never I haven't done it since. So, it's like I want to be forgiving and I want to say I trust you. I. Believe you about the same time. I'm just like man. You could be saying this shit because you want your career still. Just very true. That's how I felt about brees by who drew brees D-. Oh. Like I hadn't felt that way in a long time. I don't know if I could forget is do because it's been so long and you've had stands for so long. And now all of a sudden because you're under fire, you're about it now. You WanNa say something so that's why I had a issue would drew brees like you know you you. It's no way you can tell me that you didn't know what this was about like you didn't know. that. Has Man really didn't mean it that way? Sorry now. That's what I'm saying all. These not genuinely starring now see I do not I haven't been looking at okay and I know us on the opposite end, but. I haven't paid attention enough to see. What else is he doing? What else is he saying? But it just seemed like in the moment. It was a reaction, right? It was a reaction to what just happened. Are People coming out to you what you said I can I can tell you. What did it for me because I'm normally. It takes a minute for me I. Really got to look at actions and words. And with him, it was a number of actions and words. his first apology video apology or Henry Nepal not whatever was I could tell he didn't really get it. the first time because he was trying to straddle the fence. and. He did another one I think video on my ally. Whatever I want to be part of the solution will okay same bullshit. And, then he wrote a Thurs statement and I read that statement like twice because there's certain ways that people can write where they tried to right around the issue, and and I didn't see him trying to be slick. You GonNa. Be Slick with words. did he ever go caps name? now now brought up caps name. But a problem I get you. So he did that and then. Then it was the public rebuke to president trump, and maybe he did I have to go back and look look and see, but trump replied to him, and basically called him out and he at trump. And he had knowledge that this is an issue. It wasn't about the flag. He said it wasn't ever about the fly. It was about police brutality et Cetera et Cetera, so and the ad mentioned him and everything. And then I think that they took me over. The top was his conversation with Shannon Sharpe. Because he called in sharp y'all know how Shannon Sharpe. Shannon Sharpe, don't give a damn, but he calls Shannon Short, and they had a conversation and Shannon's our have permission to tell the details of their conversation, and I listened to Sharpe and Shannon. Sharpe was willing to give him a chance moving forward and Shannon Sharpe. Only say look man. Don't make any more policies like you said what you said. People are going to believe you're the not. There's nothing you can do about that so jazz. Move forward with actions recently, and this didn't contribute to me. Believe it or not, but there was something that be or somebody shared in our. Car He was a car where he's funding a human activity. Whatever, but that's completely after fat, but it was really the comp because I haven't talked to degrees I. Don't have those conversations, so I have to rely on people that had a conversation with them and really make an analysis from that and the things that I've read, so it wasn't just because the first apology. You've was bullshit right? But it was a sequence of events that happened and I felt like in reading these things he was not trying to. Write. To the black issues at also right to the white issues as well about the flat like he completely left out so that that's what did it for me, so it was just one thing like I saw all of these things. That I used to come to my conclusion. See here's my thing with that. Is Kinda like circling back to what we were saying earlier about how you doing everything except what people want you to do?.

Is doing computer ship. Yeah, what they're good at what and the doctors? The doctors out there shooting. Shit you want the doctors healing motherfuckers. They're gonNA. Go Shit! You know so. That's it. We have to come down to standing I feel like we're almost there, but. It just made me feel away because I think people are using her. I guess imagery or you know what she's trying to do. Were released this project. They're using that as an excuse to say, you know. BEYONCE'S A Rut. Yonge has produced. Yeah, I've seen exactly this that I've seen. Just saying you know beyond says in a Rut. She's been on this black empowerment shit for a while, and the music is selling as well and this and that in the third but like. I don't really know. I just. Again, I try really to be fair especially with artists that I do like to you know, be unbiased about some shit and I just feel like you know. Of course. The music isn't going to sell well. It's alienating a large group of her fan base, so that makes sense, and then the little money that she does make. She's redistributing it so i. just don't really get. But you shore! I. That was my topic. This! You put on a platform like Disney, plus like yeah, no, what I'm saying! It's like Shit. But now this thing that she's putting on Disney plus that's not the thing that the proceeds are going to the 'cause right. She hasn't announced any about bright so I could see them saying well until we find out what is happening with this. Maybe should reserve judgment. But why are you coming out against it already? If you don't even know yet, because thing is like putting it on one of the largest streaming platforms like right now late something like that, it's called black kings or something like that. What does it call? The the visual lack is king is King Yeah? I sent it Seattle. The. It online. Somewhere I think. It was trending actually. Yeah, I guess. I get both sides a little bit, but. I would rather reserve judgment until I. Know The details if you only details and be quiet. All you know right now. She's making a black show on Disney plus. What's wrong with that? Anyway Disney and allows. For Real you. y'All brought uncle Remus to the table so I don't WanNa hear. Here they splash mountain and shit like that they need to should've. Chain the theme song. From that fucking confusion. so mine isn't super specific, but So we were talking earlier about a lot of the things that have been happening I'll quit about how like you know all all of these rape. Are Happening to these rappers. I won't say anybody's name Yongbo look it up if you give up. But also what I've been seeing is There's a these youtubers that have been coming out and putting up these big apologies past videos. The only two that I'm familiar with There's Jenna marbles who I like her I thought she was funny. She has like these little dogs and all that. But. She has a past of doing black face and making rap songs. We lag faith black face. Yes Apparently this was a thing on youtube with popular youtubers and the people. Yeah, I didn't know this either. I wasn't up on Youtube back then basically y'all made me pay attention to Youtube but yeah she she came out, and she put out a video where she was like. I'm not making videos anymore. I'm taking a step away from Youtube and wasn't like she was bullied. Or you know canceled or anything like that. She ballin terribly said I am pulling away from Youtube. Because these videos that I did I don't WanNa harm. Anybody and I feel terrible about it so I feel like. I'm not doing a great job at being a good person on Youtube I'm stepping away from it. Then you had Shane Dawson who I think is trash person regardless. But Shane Dawson came out, and he did his little apology video for him doing black face, who he done black bass many types. Regretted it was a while ago, but he's still did it. So when I was go ahead, let's say black face you talking about little literally like putting putting darker. Seriously Merle I just wanted to clarify that. And there's another Guy Jeremy. Johns who he's He's a movie reviewer. There's video popped up where he was trying to be pizza, he was blade. Black face the big Afro. Between Blade never harassed. Whatever so apparently, these guys they think of it as edgy humor. They think it's cute and funny. So when I'm watching this. I'm like well, so at what point? Do we. Stop Holding people accountable for certain things. Stop stop so some of these videos ten plus years old right? Should people still be held accountable for things? They did like a decade ago. We saw statute of limitations on. Ask. Know like like. I've tried to move towards this thing of okay of. US Did fucked up shit in the past. and to me, it's more about. Did you grow from it? Did you learn from it and acknowledge you apologize? Did you change it? Was Shane Dawson. Really get that I. Never really saw a change I just saw. Oh, I'm not GonNa do this anymore because I could get in trouble. Jenna Marbles I actually saw like okay. I acknowledged that shit was terrible. I would never do it again and I feel awful for it so. Even though she wasn't canceled. I feel like I would be perfectly fine with her, continuing to videos and making money and doing whatever. Because like I was looking at myself and granted. I didn't have anything. That's Super Bad, but you know I said terrible things. Eight years ago seven years ago. That I feel awful for y'all. Have you know what I'm saying? Exactly? We all have so if we've grown from that stuff and we've apologized for it. Even though we can't force anyone to accept our apology and we have to understand that we don't have the right to forgiveness, but. I think is like you said like if you. If you seriously acknowledged that it was wrong. Shoot right the way the views I had like on on being gay and stuff like that growing up when I when I was like that was wrong like you know what I'm saying like. So if I can acknowledge that now I.

"Nights. Having to. Grandma Got Sophie! this I hope Super Short I know that so beyond. Say just did a visual I. Guess, that's coming out July, thirty first on Disney plus. It's burned like I don't nobody really knows what it is I think. Some people think it's an album. I think it's an album, but basically the visual has some songs from her previous album that she released with the Lion King, the gift and there's a lot of images of like you know black royalty and just black people. You know you know just being black. And, so you know initially I don't know about y'all I haven't. I've found music to be very difficult to listen to during quarantine. I've I've been feeling very uninspired by a lot of music. That's been dropped lately but that's just me, so I was looking forward to. You know some of my bigger artists that I. can kind of counting for you know dropping quality music Brianna beyond those types of people to come back and you know. Give us some more. You know artwork. Let let us know what they're. They're thinking. And I've seen the response to this. Kind of Polarized Guess I guess people are saying you know I'm I'm really tired of black capitalist using the African diaspora and. That type of we can hang like that type of energy to kind of play off of its as far as you know, promoting their art and I think that's an interesting type of Outlook, I guess an, and it would almost beg the question I guess how Black Americans and Feel you know the idea of Africa, or or what being blacking looks like in those types of situations, and I know that a lot of people are like. Oh, you know you're behind Stan like you would never criticize beyond. Say but I think it's an interesting. Outlook and I wish Nicholas here so I could see like. What can you know? His thoughts would be on it. Why because he's African employees. I think it's interesting. I don't know a lot of people are saying you know we have to support black art. WE HAVE TO SUPPORT BLACK ARTIST BLACK MUSIC And really do promote that. But then I think whenever beyond say does make attempts to. Almost alienate her fan base and kind of create the music that she wants we've. Kinda saw out a little bit with lemonade and how you know it was. Not really accepted very well as far as the grammys. It was Kinda blackballed. You know and then you know other I think Adele won that year. so yeah I think we see this a lot. But if almost like to me and I don't know if it's just because of how big she is. Whether it's you know everybody's always going to hate. On certain things, or if it's truly something that needs to be dissected. Switched around I don't know what people are wanting to see from an artist like beyond, say talking about black issues from her perspective, but it's almost like nothing is ever good enough, but I'm definitely open to see like the different perspectives on that, so there's they're. They're saying that. These artists are appropriating African culture. Appropriation per se I. Just think people are tired of. People who you talking about just people that I see on social media like you know, think twitter Basically. Saying, you know she. She's a billionaire, she. Doesn't have to live like this. She doesn't like I. Don't know if it's just that they don't want to see somebody like her. Telling a black story because people have begged the question you know if this is a Lauren Hill or Jill Scott people might be more receptive to this. But I don't know there's this idea that beyond say in general isn't educated enough to talk about these issues or speak well enough, and she's always kind of dealt with that, you know. I mean it isn't because you know how. She came up with destiny's child and stuff Kelly and Michele being darker everybody. You know she being in the spotlight. They thought it was the whole light skin trope light skinned girl gets the most success type of thing out of the group and blackballed the other. Girls so that they had less success I guess overall. no, not not really actually so I've seen Kellyanne Michelle. Say you know she really did you know? Have longer hours in the studio and stuff and just you know her parents Matthew and Tina? It was almost like they did the whole Michael Jackson thing where they were like. You'RE GONNA. Be a star type of thing. We don't give a flop type of thing, so I think that's kind of how she was raised. But you know. I don't know I don't think that's fair to criticize someone that wants to create art. like what they feel inspired by right now to. I feel I. Think people are just getting annoyed. This idea of what black excellence looks like and who gets to participate in it and how it's performed, and I think that that is something that we should to critique, but at the same time it's like. Are you allowed? To blog excellence where you are your status or social status at inundate you still black, and it's kind of like the lines. They had about like Oj. He's like I'm not black I'm OJ. You'll ask still black. It don't matter if the if y people loved you one time because you play football or you know whatever at the end of the day you are black, so. I don't think it's fair to be like. Oh! This person has a certain social status or the billionaire capitalist or whatever. I mean that's what they fill in in their soul. They like Oh. I, see this person that looks like me. Being harm injustices even if it's not me even if it's on probably in a place where it won't happen like that with me. I still feel that right like like my just say would allies, or whatever like he? He felt that if. He felt that he wasn't in that position, but he felt that so if he wanted to speak if they want to speak out about that. I think it's the same thing you know what I'm saying beyond. Say See everything. It's probably crying home. With her millions of dollars she's probably still crawling home. She sees her things because. Because you have to use it. Why does it whatever, but still it's still hurtful..

You know what that makes me so sad because. I know that this goes to court. The defense rate that the defense. The person representing the officer is probably going to I.

Misconduct in battery is pretty much the same thing I I'm not a lawyer, but probably I would think so. Do through on every single charge. Of until. And they try to find one that stick, so that's why they give it to everything. De Lodge, McLean, when though I heard the Roseau? Cared about sitting. That would actually fuck me up a lot which one so? He was a twenty three year old, calling him a kid, but he wasn't a kid, but he just feels like a kid to me, but twenty-three-year-old he looked like he just and how he acted, he acted very innocent and sweet I saw I. Don't know this is not confirmed at all, but I saw that he may have had a disability. You can okay, so so I was talking to somebody about this and I said that he to me, he appeared to be on the spectrum. I'm not a holiday. I got Ya, but he appeared to be on the spectrum. And, of course somebody else took that as a detriment. I'm like look I'm not saying that as a detriment I'm saying as a fucking fat like if you look at this kid. Kid He, look at this dude. Just the way he behaved yeah He was very sweet, very respectful. There's videos of him going into gas stations. And if he saw another person, he would bow to them like his his idea of respect, respect you and just walking away. He was walking home. and he was listening to music he had he was. I think it just gotten some tea or something from the store. He was going home and he was. You know we do some time. Haydn failure, you should come on. You know just get high, and he's walking by himself, and he was wearing a ski mask. Apparently, he was anemic and it was cold. He didn't like cold air on his knees, which could be another sign of some sort of alternate mind, thinking but anyways. Somebody called the cops on him as white people love to do, and they call the cops because he was raising, he was throwing his hands up and I can't remember exactly what the report said was something like they thought that He. Quote. Unquote may have a gun. Whatever whatever? So, cops of course show up. And he got scared. He thought he was going to die. I didn't see the video, but if I listened to the audio. And apparently according to the cops, he grabbed for one of their guns. But when the when the part that I saw started up, you hear him. He's being held down. He's crying. He's saying I just WanNa go home I'm sorry, I, don't I, don't normally do things like that I didn't mean to. then he says I'm just different I'm just different, and that was the part that really really really really upset me like him. Just crying out saying I'm different I'm different. I, just WANNA go home. And Apparently, they They called the EMT MT came, and they injected him with Ketamine which is used which is. Not as much use anymore, but it's used to calm you down basically within like rupees. So it like it makes it easier for Lazy fucking pigs to arrest people, but it's also used for people who may be hyped up on drugs to calm them down. They can be you know safely apprehended, but they injected him with the and the kid had heart at heart attack, and he died because of this. And I don't know. What does I mean the door floyd? One of course made me upset. Aubrey made me upset. For some reason with this one, it was just listening to that kid crying. Saying I'm just different. You know. What It's Noah got me when I listened to it because I had a an emotional response to this as well it was hearing him say that and knowing that the people that were arrested him in daycare. Yeah, and place myself. In his situation like four minute. That was me Saying those exact same words. Hoping and praying that it would do that in the do something. That's not something that I think we typically hear from people who are struggling or trying to resist arrest or just scared or whatever typically it's like stop. Get off me like Kinda like look at what you're doing like in like more. I Say aggressive in a negative context, but that could be seen more and more aggressive shore in in this context to me, it just seems like. Like help me you know like you're hurting me helped me. He was apologizing to the police officers. I'm over and over because and the thing is and I. Think the reason why it fucks with us so much because you can tell that that's an emotional response. Not Everybody reacts to being scared in the same way, and so for him to you know, have that reaction and. Be Scared and be like. Hey, you know I i. don't know what else to do, so I'm sorry if I did do something I. Really Am but like. Let's talk about this like. I'm sorry you know. Some people that is their response to be scared and legit. Don't know why they're doing this or why. They won't get up You know trying to figure out. What did you do wrong and he's talking about I. Don't eat meat I. Don't do all of these things I'm an introvert. Different that's all this. And and you know at at some point you gotta realize what you would. You would hope and think that the people that are doing this. Would listen to those things and not see him as a violent figure. Especially when you have them down, it's just. It I mean you know this, but then you're. You're starting to hear and see so many different scenarios. where it doesn't matter what you do where the violent. Where the you are very P, C and B all yesterday respectability thing like the happen with a ratio, Bro, he like he was like overly apologetic and polite and Nice, and try to have a conversation, and like actually came up with solutions like Louis I. Or. We could do like he was basically doing. The police should have done. Leading the situation like Hey I'm not here, I could go here. I continue sleeping in my car. Maybe I could move somewhere else. My sister could pick me up. I could walk over there. It's not very far like for a white girl. They literally would have been like Oh my God sweetie. Let's just hop in the I was the address. Let me take you right on over. Not just heard a story. I was doing on tour. Probably, once were in. The lady will not it wasn't. It wasn't a problem when I was doing some from somebody else. They said that A. Date. They had a teenager like do that. A party or whatever white teenager in. They left a party drunk. End Up hidden a COP car. Destroying a core in in cotton lily just let him off with a with a warning mesmerized. Crazy. I know I'm not surprised either, but is just like to hear something like that like. That's crazy like a shot of. Something we would have got shot over like. And like abused, like you just let that person off with a warning is different man. It's almost bringing different. Yeah, and I'M GONNA. Bring it back to Lebron James, just a little bit, and what he's doing like if he pulls out news, programming and stuff like that like. What has happened in this history as we all know is that you know we have been you know portrayed as you know these super human beings or these evil creatures throughout history since inception. And you know it's ingrained in them. They're brainwashed them. So you know without having any control over that messaging is hard for these people to get that out of their system, because that's all that they kind of know, and they don't even probably some somewhere deliberately races and don't give a fuck, but others are programmed to think that way, and and that's why they act in the way that they do so You know with with him doing what he's doing. Other people you know I, don't know, but you know the then again. The white wash those shows, so then there's the other you know a caveat to that, but nevertheless step but. It's sad man.

What's the other word? He always use Typical. Typical typical. Non Perot Twelve is always non Perot and I don't know if you are Saudis me. basically a headline about two days ago, where a police officer pretty much was trying to detain a pregnant woman by having his knee on her neck. And then taste her belly and killed her. Up. I swear to God house episode of Black Mirror Bro. You saw right Sophie. Yeah Burt and the guy. Dies. I didn't know. I did not know that. Her stomach tasers multiple times dish video I soon as the black woman. So. This is going to open up a very interesting discussion for these These all lives matter conservative white not yet is because. Are you going to okay, so if if if this cop ends up getting charged. What would he be charged with? Would he be charged with murder? And if not, why not? Because if y'all think that babies our lives because you're pro-life. How can you say that? This is not murder because you killed a quote, unquote innocent child. You perfectly tasers under such thing right I think that a lot of the Times people like you and me and you know other people. Are you know this would pose a very interesting argument because if they're saying this? Year, but the thing is. Racist people fucking library Dave fucking just lie and lie. There fucking point across so there's no logic that makes any fucking sense you can see. They're fucking president that this makes no Goddamn sent, and this was something that I was struggling with couple of weeks back. Because I. Just felt very like alienated, and like do people really not understand racism and not the issue like? Do they just not get it because they made it up? So it's like how can you like? Throw something into the and just turn your head and be like I don't know you know like that's crazy to me. It's not that they don't know and it's not that you know they're not aware. That they fucking be fucking lying and it wasn't until I did watch a video. It was broken down very nicely by Amanda Sales. A lot of people don't agree with her on stuff, but I know that you know her opinions on race to me are typically on point, but yeah, she basically you know brought up manifest destiny, and all of these things in history that white people have traditionally lied about basically remain at the top, or you know, make it seem like ignorance is bliss, but they know what the fuck they'd be doing, and they always have these arguments where it's. It's like blue lives. Matter but Lou is actually life just these things they throw out there just to support their ideals, so I think at the end of the day. It makes us feel better like hey, we're. We debunk their theory. We gotcha. No, you don't. They're still going to be racist and they're still GONNA lie dive in so much just about racism. It's about it's about your whole stance on on politics in general. Yeah, so if you're going to the voting for people based on. Based on race as well, but also based on things like. PRO-CHOICE PRO-LIFE RIGHT? I'm just looking at it again. If this person is charged, how can you fight whether or not? It's murder because if you're saying that abortion should be illegal. Because, it's murder. If this taste, a woman stomach purposely because she was killed her. Killed The baby I understand that but I think at the end of the day. It doesn't matter Aboul whether a baby died or not. In the process there are going to be some racist people who might feel bad, or maybe they won't. Because it's a black baby, but I think at the end of the day like. I. Don't think people who are pro-life fight for being pro-life because they're actually pro-life, they, of course not exactly, but that's my point, so I think that it would be I think it will open. An interesting discussion, because it's not about a Gotcha moment because these people are creating policy based around that theory exactly so, but that's that's what I'm saying, so it would be an issue where I feel like there'd be a lot to discuss their and unpack. So. Yeah, there's sure they might not listen. They might not even want to have that discussion, but if they did I think it would be an interesting discussion to have I. Don't think it would be you. Link got him this. I just don't think it would be because we know racist people to come up and get behind a podium and dispute whatever the fuck, but again it's not about the race part like if we're removing and I know I sound like all is white guy right now, but we're removing the race discussion from it I'm looking at overall like okay. Let's say if this was a white baby. Oh, I feel like we would still have to have that discussion, and then maybe that would benefit policy at the end of the day. Because maybe these guys would have to stop and really think about what they're saying, but that's what I'm. That's what I'm thinking and I'm. I'm in agreement with both of you. That are really big is going to be interesting to see what they do with. Back up and make their way out of this is what I'm hearing from. Sophie or my interpretation. What she's saying is that these mother fuckers are so racist that they'll be. They'll find a loophole in a push that to the side and put their racism ahead of the pro-life and I don't think you can. When it comes to actually enforcing some sort of law or policy, so that knowing part that I find the interesting to watch. Yes, for this woman lost her child bullshit. But. How far does racism go like? How far does your? Your races DNA in this country, or in that conservative or pro-life or whatever. How far does that goes your racism? overwrite the Bible right? Yeah, most people yes. But I'm curious to see how this goes. I can't believe this is real to ask..

Okay that s that's not really helping, but. I mean he's having, but not in a way that I think it could really help to pull and. Push Up. Smaller voices that are creative at just needs that type of the or help. The but the other thing though and I think when I think about this is that is This is how stars because media for the most part. Is Why controlled and we have wanted to networks TV one bt. Eventually they sold out, but now we have these guys that are trying to do something in the media space that has leverage clout and pull and all of those things. To push back against everybody else and can do it their way, so it'll be interesting to see if where this goes and what he does with it. Because because those voices need it like you say we. We've been around for ten years, and we reached seven million people annually combined with on you to. Over a hundred thousand people a month with the PODCAST so we reach people very small new people, but we reach people from our perspective as people that's living this life, not as an athlete or a celebrity or something that's somewhat shielded or insulated from those like. We're asking me living in the world. So so, but and and we're talking from a black perspective. Dating Games just got pulled into something. That I think he's going to be great. But you guys are speaking on that and coming in a direction that. That's needed because it's often not there underserved, so we'll see but. Regardless of where it goes? I think it'd be if he stays within the confines of of blackness. I think it'd be great. Man I think it'd be great. You know that's that's how it starts with today's world. You don't need like all of this investment fund to get on TV or radio or anything like that. frigging you to get you live or whatever in bail so? So yeah. So, let's. Top it was just kind of general. I guess like just. So I'll start with with this a graphic saw. But I I had been seeing it, but like it's like it says us, Hey, could the police just treat US better?

Life Changing flags and doing all this stuff, but nobody's talking about like defunding employees. It's like doing everything except what? We're asking for have y'all been noticing that absolutely, and it's pissing me off. Yes, there is literally this radio. Station that I guess. My mom listens to in the morning or something I heard it on and this guy was like you know. Do they want every single white American to personally apologize to the to the Indian people. Do they want know every American to personally apologize to black people I mean if that's what you want, fine, we'll do that. You know it might sound ridiculous or silly to us, but fine will do it, but we're not going to defend the police. What what what is it that? That you guys want from us, and I'm like well. We just told you what we wanted. You're telling us you're not going. Do it? And you're upset that you have to do all these other things that we never asked for and it just kind of seems it makes white. People seem outraged like. Oh, my Gosh! They're changing the bottles on things. Oh my God. They're changing the Danes on things. They're painting the streets. Black lives matter. It's so crazy. That's not what the fuck we asked for. So yeah. I, am noticing that. This is weird to me like. Doing all of this. Like what what people want? Some places are doing it though to what some people some places are doing defunding place Yeah, in Minneapolis! They they're talking about completely abolishing the police departments and. So I mean. Is it not abolishing defunding? Mean your it's. It's slow is going to be slow I think the issue. Is Everyone seriously? Like we live in a in a right now aside. You know that's just the way kids grow up these days and they think that. You can say right now I want all of this shit done, and it's like Oh overnight. It done, but that's not the way it works. It's just gonNA. Take some time right reason why you say right now right, but they're doing all this other shit like right now. Like statues flags all his. Other shifts just I.

I've heard it on accident like that, so I have an idea of how it sounds good but I don't really know any music by name or the artist or anything I just know that super popular over there All right cool, so let's jump into our topics for the week. What you got Mr Foe thirty. Yeah like I. Say it's a quick, and I mean this dude is continuing to take over Shit Man on Lebron James and longtime business partner maverick owner has. Got One hundred million dollar investment to build a new meeting media empire. Lebron James as pretty much. It's going to be unapologetic agenda. is going to be unapologetic black, maybe like it's going to be reaching out for Black Traders, black business folks black everything black so i. think the fact that he already built a school in his hometown. You know for underprivileged kids and had him hooked him. Get through college and businesses and everything like that. I think that's though and the process I think of. Of Him building at school he had like the parents can kind of like if they don't have their college education, he paid for college. You know all that stuff too I. Think Lebron is doing so amazing things outside of basketball man and you know those that are whole thing is like you want him to just shut up and dribble, but he's actually. Doing stuff is community man. I think it's no I think that's just wanted to bring it up and talk about it on this huge platform. We I think I think the thing is so interesting to me of Oliver. James Off, the core is like. There's so much pressure and scrutiny on this man, and realistically outside of the the whole Miami thing like the the way he decided to go to to join the Miami, like he has had no misstep, and I think that that's so difficult in today's Day and age to be I. Don't WanNa? Say Right, but just have like the real pulse of the people in truly giving back and creating opportunity You know what I'm saying like Oh I. Don't think there's been another. Sports athlete to do it how he's doing it and he's doing his wall. He's still playing in the midst of his career so I. I think that that just sets up for an either an even bigger stage post career. You know what I'm saying, so M bigshots, Lebron man that's huge because I mean you look at previous athletes from you know in you know the elise and you know out of athletes that still for something that's still verse, and in most. Most parts I feel like Lebron James Really using his money like lot. E. Wasn't making one hundred million twenty million money dollars and stuff that he had financial backing. Lebron James is taking his findings are back in really helping out, so I think that's dope. Man, I think that's really a hope is his new venture day he him and his longtime partner crates hope it benefits I said you know the only bad business. Move that they've done. Was Johnny Manziel? If you. Look at it as Yes so johnny was drafted that that's who represented him, and after about two mix ups with the law, they they advertise that. Wasn't that bad of a deal. It didn't work out, but it didn't work. The opposite of what white people do with black people you try to find. Somebody, that's outlandish and well known and monetize them. It just didn't work out for them. So own, We both. I see. Yeah Man, no I was gonNA. Say not to take anything away from the Brian James but like. Other other like athletes that are doing thing, and it just may not be as publicized. School. Head that way before the end so I wanna like I love with Lebron, James Doing but I think he's just publicize more I think I think people talk about it more, but it's always been athletes that you know. Get back to the communities and stuff like that is. An An and I'm not saying that there isn't anybody else in lebrons. The only one I'm just saying at the level of what Lebron is doing how he's doing it I. Don't think that there's been another way to do it like him. Is All, I'm saying 'cause I- Jalen rose of course like he's. He's he all. He's like all the people. From Detroit, they, four Detroi-, and Jalen is big time in Detroit, but even like his school. You know what I'm saying like. At times, you know. They struggled for funding. And I get it, and and that's not no detriment. Say, but I'm just saying love. At a great, yes, they do but I'm just saying like at the level that Lebron's during his school and now the entertainment thing like all of the things he's doing I'm just saying. Is that a bigger Levy? Yeah, the means to. Lebron James. Doing his part of course. and. That's what I'm saying. I'm not diminishing. Nobody else I'm not diminishing. Nobody else. I'm just giving Lebron his props. Doing that at that Damn Love, because because if you have the means and that's expected, you know saying he's doing what's expected in didn't have missteps, which I think is so easy in today's society. You know so. I gotta give props, and I'm not diminishing. Anybody else is doing the smallest piece say everybody is needed. You Know Sam by just WanNa. Get Lebron's props for doing it at that at the level. He's doing it because we need even more people that that have that type of backing or the platform and things of that nature, or that's influenced to do it at that level, because it's not just the. Type of power and influence. You know I'm not calling nobody. Out. CHEESY! You know..

Officers investigated over photos at Elijah McClain memorial
"Water. They're accused of taking disrespectful pictures at the memorial for Elijah McLean, the black man who died in police custody last August. In a statement Monday, Aurora's interim police chief said the department has investigated a report that multiple police officers were depicted in photographs near the site where Maclaine died. Sources tell CBS News those officers were imitating the chokehold. McLane was placed in just days before his death and that the photos were shared with other Aurora police officers. The police Department says it will release evidence of its investigation into the inappropriate photos, including pictures, and the officers identities very soon. Laura Podesta, CBS news judge says the former Atlanta police officer

Elijah McClain's mother says officers "murdered" my son
"Longer protesters and demonstrators and activists continue fighting for black lives. The more stories of police killings of black people seem to be coming to light and pressure is now mounting for a new investigation. Into the death of Elijah McCain. It happened after an encounter with three officers last August in Aurora, Colorado. Go to the family. The 23 year old was out buying ice tea when somebody called 911 claiming that MacLean was wearing a ski mask and quote acting weird. His family says, Yeah, he was wearing a mask, but it was to deal with social anxiety. Within 15 minutes, He was put in a chokehold and then injected with a powerful sedative. CBS's David Begnaud has the story. Stop! Stop! Stop! Stop. I have the right stuff because you're being suspicious. Rely on I'm going whole relax, or I'm going to have to change this situation. The district attorney investigating the case says that Elijah McClane dismissed the officers requests for him to stop. The 23 year olds family says he was just walking home. He was listening to music. When Aurora, Colorado police approached him last August, the D A. Says McLane was carrying a plastic bag when police tried to pat him down and he refused. He's then heard pleading with the police as they tackle him and use a choke hold on him. Paramedics later arrived at the scene. A medic gave McClane ketamine to sedate him. McLane was taken to the hospital. Three days later, he was pronounced brain dead. 10 months after McLane's death, more than two million people have signed a petition calling on Colorado officials to fire the three officers involved. So far, the Aurora Police Department has declined. CBS News is request for comment. Dave Young is the one who decided not to charge the officers were the actions of the officers justified legally. Yes, Mr Young. Do you believe there was a moment in this where the officers could have de escalated a situation? Absolutely. 100%. They could've done a 1,000,000 things different didn't need to die on and the fact that he died does not warrant the basis for criminal charges in the body camera video cops or heard saying that MacLean tried to take one of their guns. He went for his gun. Mari Newman represents McClain's family. Don't you think if you really had grab someone's gun, we would see fingerprints ended the lifted from the gun. Did you find any evidence that corroborates the officer who said he reached for the gun? I had no evidence to cut. Predict that Shin in McLean is Elijah's mother. They? They're bullies with badges. He wanted to help people. He was a massage therapist. He not only heal others that he killed himself. He was able to accept love give love various forms. According to the district attorney's report, the medical examiner was unable to determine a cause of death. It is important to note that walking around with a ski mask is not illegal, and when you go back to the 9 11 call, the caller didn't say that Elijah did anything illegal. He said. Hey, there's a guy wearing a mask. He kind of is waving his hand. Seems a little strange. You might want to check it out. He says He might be a good guy might be a bad guy. When the police responded instead of observing. Instead of watching hanging back for a bit, the police moved in immediately to stop him. And everything went self from there.
"mcclain" Discussed on QUEERY with Cameron Esposito
"That was. Have seen movies. It is not cold. What it okay, so you're a hang on. Let's let's just let me just ask a couple questions you get in a seat. That you get strapped into the seat is facing. What's your shirt? Are you laying on your back and right on your back? Yes, because you're gonNA, go okay straight up in the air. What you're laying your back There's like I, got a helmet out of some sorts. Nassar Helmets! You're doing. Exactly what we want. Some sort of microphone were thing in your ear. Somebody's telling you what's going on like. There's I think there's a countdown of some sorts. Here is a retail. I will tell you the only time that I think Ma that I know my heart rate went up and I thought. What am I doing was on the elevator ride up. And and it had nothing to do with getting on a rocket. It had everything to do with that elevator. Because I mean that's elevator series, so you're making a really good point listen. I grew up in spokane Washington, which means every summer we went to the space needle in Seattle and we rode the elevator up and I in my entire life could never get myself to look out the window, and then there was. Nine years old in Kazakhstan writing this elevator up probably fifty years old in a window and my crew mates are like Andy on a look out like waves, and all the people and I said no, and I have my back turned to the window. The whole time I can think of was me in this rocket. Get off this elevator. Did you ever cross your mind? During that time that the rocket was going to go? In fact, even higher than the space that was fine. If you were to imagine a space needle, that space was actually. Further than that you know soon, it's fight right because. It all seriously like the the launched by the time you get there. You have done this like two year process to train exactly for this flight, and it's really what we call in the test pilot world of build up process when you see test pilots doing things that look crazy whether they're breaking the sound barrier. They're hiring. They're flying higher farther faster. They're doing. Doing things to the aircraft that never been done before. They don't just go do that right like if you're going to fly at four times, the speed of sound that's that's not your first. You start at one in a half one three quarters, and you do it like step by step is really the same thing with launching a space. We spend the whole. Training period going a little farther every single day, so that by the time you get to launch day. You literally have done everything except for stepping on that elevator. And once you're in the vehicle much like flying other aircraft. Focused on what you need to be doing and the mission that there's almost like some cognitive dissident, not not dissonance because the negative connotation, but conflict perhaps. Of. Just doing the things that you'd mechanically no, you need to do versus in your mind going. Oh my gosh in eight minutes eight and a half minutes. I'm going to be in space. That's all it takes from the time you see the fire launch on the launchpad. Eight minutes and forty seconds later. We are floating space, so it's a really quick transition. I hear what you're saying I mean I. mean. That's I. Really Thought for my own career experience like. I've even sort of written about that. That like nobody. Nobody is on TV their first day. They're telling a joke i. just think it's. It's just seems so extreme. It's absorbed strong. Rally into space. Just hearing, you say telling jokes on TV made my heart rate. Go Up more than the rocket launched in. Carefylly. Okay different people have different skills is what I'm hearing there Okay here's a question he did. You have like a space job or is everybody like I'm assuming? The tasks might be. You might have a specialty true. Yeah, so That's really insightful question, so it used to be true in the shuttle days when when crews of about seven people would fly out for ten to fourteen days, each person had a job. You were the pilot or you were the SPACEWALKER or you? The robotics operator. Will now we go to space for you know six months mission is about the norm, and so during that six months. You have to be able to do everything so you have to be able to do. All of the science projects that are going to be on board, which is half of our time. You have to be able to do the spacewalks. You have to be able to operate the robotic arm, which which goes out and grapples grabs onto our visiting cargo vehicles, and you have to be able to fly there. Fly Back and so right now a diversity of experience breadth of knowledge and experience is easy, is as important as depth for the people that were selecting and for having perform, and so that's really interesting, so yeah. Yeah, we are all interchangeable. You know if you if you get at the vehicle that I flew up on actually so our pilot and commander was a Russian who his background was in engineering. The co-pilot was a Canadian doctor and I was the third crew member, and I was the only test pile in the only one. That didn't have any controls, so it's like everybody has to be able to do everything at this point. While, did you? Did you pilot the? Federal is the word shuttle. Did you pile it? The show I flew based to I flew. The Soya's which is a capsule looking spacecraft's Russian so I launched and landed out of Kazakhstan by can span. Over in Russia, and so it is, as it is a capsule vehicle, so the shuttle like flu like an airplane or landed like a glider wings Renault shuttle. The story is more like a capsule shaped like you'd think of the Apollo, so it just does a vertical landing with a parachute. But you wait hang..
