Show Notes

Episode #67 Kunta got the best gift for Christmas...Love. After years and years of support, he get paid for all of his support in a character building event. This is why I choose not to celebrate any of these corporate driven holidays. I prefer to get my wife and loved ones gifts throughout the year where there is no expectation attached.

 

Kunta tries to sell me on the idea of Kwanza. All he really does is give me a reason for not celebrating. Do gifts get exchanged during Kwanza? I forgot to ask.

 

What religious belief do you subscribe to? Kunta finds a way to make fun of it. He has left the many churches behind and taken a more Reverend Ike approach to his existentialism. So much so, that we venture into the lands of alternative history and alien manipulation. I am here for that.

Less Voting Please

Black On Both Sides Episode #115 The Black Super Bowl (aka NBA All Star Game) is in Atlanta this weekend, and there are people everywhere. It isn’t as bad as Texas where their Governor has decided that his state should be a mask free zone. He recently opened EVERYTHING with no restrictions or curfews. Mississippi decided to follow along for some reason. So Atlanta isn’t that bad. However, I was not able to get Popeye’s Chicken this weekend due to the capacity crowd at Cascade’s Skating Rink which shares the parking lot with Popeye’s. Catfishing is supposed to be limited to relationships, however, HBO has a new show about the next level. They have taken on the task of making someone famous without there being anything for them to be famous for. Speaking of doing something you have no skills for, Zaya Wade interviewed Michelle Obama. Anyone can be and do anything. What happened to 10,000 hours? Biden has finally done something with his Presidency. Those stimulus checks he promised should be hitting your accounts in the next couple of weeks. 1.9 Trillion has been accepted and is on its way to needy Americans. Republicans are working hard to limit access to voters. They feel that the fewer people that vote, the more percentage rises for Republicans. It may be the only way Republicans ever get elected again. So they are on a campaign to figure out how to keep you away from the polls. According to Kunta this is all evidence of why it was so important that we all went out and voted. And this is why we should continue to vote.   Less Voting, Please #BOBS115 Support the show by ...

The Process Of Impeachment

Episode #66 Does anyone still look to oprah for guidance? Anyone black? Not I, said B-Honest. But I did get my show warmup go to the sounds of Amethyst today. I’m up and a sick Kunta is down.   Akon is building a city. Kunta is happy that Black Panther really exists and that we will soon see Wakanda.   Articles of Impeachment will be voted on and Kunta is ecstatic. Kunta feels that this vote is one of formality only. I believe that you can’t turn your back on a hurt animal.    Kunta is schooling us all on process. So I have no choice but to give him the floor for a major lesson in how the impeachment process really works. However, I feel the need to be more balanced when it comes to history. Will history only see the negative Trump did? Or will we see the positive things as well?    The Process Of Impeachment #BOBS066 ...

X The Past

Black On Both Sides Episode #119 Question of the day…Who is your favorite CrackHead? I know. It sounds hateful. It sounds dismissive. But if you had to pick one, who would it be? Many people would say Tyrone Biggums. Some would say their uncle. A couple would say the guy I knew that used to have a fully mobile (He walked to you) car wash in the hood. Wait! We all know and love one person that had his difficulties with the pipe. Arf Arf! Meanwhile, they are trying to cancel the man before his bones even dry out. When are we going to get tired of judging people’s mid 90’s stances by today’s standards? This just can’t be done. Especially since he isn’t here to defend his possible evolution. Let the negative things stay in the past. Who won the Isley and Earth Verzuz? Not sure, but Kunta said that there was no deep Fake of Ronald Isley. I am not so sure as I know that man looked different in the 80s. Sadly, they released a new song on the backs of their newfound attention. I’m not saying I don’t like it. I’m just saying it isn’t good. Speaking of deep fakes, who told Kid Cudi to run out on stage in a dress and cosmetic jewelry? These kids and their rock ‘n roll. If you have been following the Chauvin trial, yeah most of us are not. It is too easy to just watch the highlights. It seems that there is a mixed feeling about who is winning so far. Nonetheless, we are bracing for a result that will hurt our hearts. It ...
