Show Notes

Black On Both Sides Episode #124

If you are looking for a show that gives you low brow foodie info and high brow black history, Kunta recommends High on the Hog. This is a show just in time for Juneteenth. Speaking of Juneteenth, how many of you celebrated this? How many of you have been celebrating this for years? Liars! This was not a thing 10 years ago. In fact, 5 years ago, a few “woke” black people were carrying on about it. Now you would think that this is something we celebrated since we were kids. Now I understand its value, but let’s not pretend like this is a tradition that we have all grown up with. Either way, it is now recognized as a Federal Holiday. And I can appreciate that. Kunta is suspicious how it passed unanimously.

How did IKEA Atlanta show their support for Juneteenth? By serving fried chicken and watermelon in their cafeteria. Do the Swedes not know about tropes? I know I should be offended, but I think it is hilarious in today’s onslaught of social awareness. The next time you need a cheap sofa, you can grab some watermelon too.

The Raider have the first openly gay active NFL player. Is this a beautiful sign that acceptance can exist in the NFL Locker Room? Or a soon to be nightmare for public relations? Or…is it all a lie?

Oh and Derek Chauvin got 22 years.

Atlanta is Burning…Again

Black On Both Sides Episode #87 In 1864, Sherman marched on Atlanta and sacked the city. In an effort to not leave anything for the Union Army, the Confederate leader had his troops set fire to much of the ammunition and other valuable things around the city. This was nothing like that. This was just more of the same police brutality and a dead black man. So the very least we can do is burn something. A Wendy’s goes up in flames. This isn’t justice. It’s just hurt. It doesn’t seem to matter if the spotlight is on the cops or not. They are going to continue killing people. And with more light, they can see how to do it better. Meanwhile, Trump is quadrupling down on trying to look good for his base. Anyone but trump should be the Democratic slogan.

Bringing The Troops Home…To Saudi Arabia

Episode #62 Kunta turns 40 and the show shows its more mature side. Nah, actually the show still leans heavily against Trump. Kunta takes this week to key in on Syria. Pelosi gets a zinger that even I can’t deny. It’s rare that someone has a better quip than Trump. But her “bring the troops home” come-back was priceless. Speaking of priceless, this letter to the Turkish President was ridiculous. So ridiculous that the president of turkey is said to have balled it up and thrown it away. Meanwhile they put a pause on bombing the Kurds. Not a cease fire. So, now there is now a whistle blower working on Trump’s side? Allegedly, he is saying that his boss at CNN has been forcing his journalists to lean very heavy against Trump and many employees are upset. Bringing The Troops Home…To Saudi Arabia #BOBS062 ...

Packaged and Processed in Thailand

Black On Both Sides Episode #107 I don’t eat Doritos. That shouldn’t be surprising. But what if I told you I have never had Doritos? Or chili? Kunta always seems so put off by my inability to eat like the rest of the world. I eat a lot of processed foods (so does everyone else). But Doritos is not one of those food items. Meanwhile Kunta thinks he is better than the rest of us because he shops at Trader Joe’s. As if TJ’s doesn’t sell processed BS food also. Whole Foods, Harris Teeter, Trader Joe’s…none of them are really selling you better food. Fight me! Kunta reads the back of his most recent TJ’s purchase and Aha…processed. And processed in another country. Kick it with us in our Network Chat California is back on Pandemic Lockdown. Meanwhile the vaccine is “ready”. Who is taking this? Everyone I speak with is saying that they aren’t but can it possibly become a mandatory thing? We don’t even know what the vaccine is actually successful at doing. Prevention? Transmission? Mortality? I am going to wait…Most likely a really long time. Kunta wants Georgians to go back out and vote again. In order to get the Legislative branch to make any moves during this presidency, Dems need to get one of the two seats up for the taking.
