Black On Both Sides Episode #120
We send out a RIP to musician, artist, producer, influencer Shock G of Digital Underground. A person who musically didn’t get the recognition deserved to him. But someone that will not be forgotten. Meanwhile, DMX has a funeral and the earth stands still. Maybe a little bit lopsided. But hey, rest to both of them, nonetheless.
Vanessa Bryant may be single-handedly destroying the Kobe legacy by not coming to terms with Nike and their proposed future for the brand. Shouldn’t this be bigger than her? Is this about money?
Candace Owens continues to stay relevant by saying that the Chauvin trial was not justice but instead a testament to how the country is controlled by mob rule. Mob rule may have had something to do with 3 guilty verdicts coming back…but clearly she didn’t watch the video.
Surrounding the Chauvin trial, there were two police events that made the news. Dautne Wright and Makhia Bryant. Both of which resulted in the black person dying at the hands of police. The timing couldn’t be worse, but these two incidents are very different in my eyes. Are we headed for a new day in police oversight? Or is this a detour before we go back to business as usual?
45 mass shootings last month. Is it time to crack down on guns in this country? I am not so sure. Kunta makes great points about magazine capacity and need for assault rifles. I however, still feel the need to have for protection. This is more than likely going to be the theme for a few shows this year on BOBS. But here is where it always falls down. I own guns, but I have never had the urge to go full John Wick. And because of that, why do I need gun control?

Episode #27 We have reached the end of another year. The first end to a year of Black On Both Sides. We want to thank everyone for listening and plan on making 2019 an even better year for the Sides. But before we leave 2018, we must talk about a few things. Bone Thugs have a beef with the Migos? No, you didn't miss anything. There wasn't anything to miss. This beef is nonexistent. Well unless you consider a Bizzy pulling out a rifle reminiscnet of Maw and Paw. In other Kunta news, Gucci Mane Lemonade turns 10 today and Kunta can't hold back his excitement. Clone or no clone, Kunta is a fan. Trump is retracting his ownership of the wall debacle. Now he is blaming the Dems for the shutdown of the government. Honestly, what is 5 billion dollars to this country? We spend so much money on other things. I blame the Dems as much as I blame him. Even beyond that Kunta exposes Trump for lying to the forward deployed military about their 10% raise which ended up being 2%. I actually agree with this. The last thing we want is those troops out there to know the truth and pack it up. Happy New Year! ...
Black On Both Sides Episode #72 I, for one, was really ready for the TV series Power to be over. But they added many final season episodes as an extension. It was this generations Who Shot JR. Then they went and did something worse...They created a spin off. This time Tariq is at college and Method Man and Mary J Blige are involved. I won't be watching. However, I may be listening as Kunta just let me know that Sisqo has thrown his name in the hat for artists willing to sing the intro song. Kunta reveals that he isn't so black after all. At least not when it comes to black tv series watching. He has never seen an episode of the following: The Wire, Insecure, Queen Sugar, etc. He has also only seen one Tyler Perry movie. Isn't he supposed to be the more potent Black from Black ON Both sides? D Wade and Gabby are looking like the most progressive parents of the year, yet they still are not allowing Wade's other son from another mom in the house. How progressive is that? Trump has turned his real life into an episode of the Apprentice and has begun firing everyone in sight. Meanwhile the Dems look more and more powerless against a re-election. Unless....Unless...Mike Bloomberg can save the day!

Episode #34 Black History month is almost over. And what a turbulent one we have had this year. Obama has been out and about this month and even made time for some NCAA rivalry. He was courtside to see Zion explode out of his shoe. Was this poor craftsmanship or a 300 pound man-child doing what he does to all of his clothes…Or was Obama to blame??? Jussie gets caught up and we can’t determine how to punish him. Obviously, there is wrong doing, but how many non brown people have done this type of thing? In some cases, brown people were even hurt or killed in the process. Lets keep the same energy and figure out a equal punishment for this guy. Fresh off of a Super Bowl win, Robert Kraft is caught getting a happy ending. Meanwhile fresh off of a 14 year old body part, Robert Kelly finds himself inside a jail cell. I can already guess how this will probably end for both of them, but Kunta has faith in the system. We are all (not all of us) triggered by blackface. What about Confederate Army uniforms? I’m not, however Kunta thinks that anyone who wears this uniform is racist…even if they are part of a historical reenactment. At some point we have to move on from the symbols. They only have power when you assign power to them. ...
