Show Notes

Black On Both Sides Episode #97

Rest in peace to our first mainstream black super hero. Chadwick Boseman lost his battle with cancer and the world was shocked because we didn’t know he was sick. We all know what Marvel means to Kunta, but the world felt this loss.

17 year olds should not carry AR-15s. In fact, it is illegal to carry one. However, Kyle did. In the process of carrying this weapon, he killed two people and injured another. Why was he even in a state that he did not live in? Do we need a militia to protect businesses? Why wasn’t he arrested the night of the shootings? Many questions here. Do we think that a proper investigation will be had?

I want to separate protesters from rioters and law enforcement from militia. I don’t think these groups should be considered the same thing, nor do I think the former should suffer for the latter’s negligence and/or criminality. But was the militia perceiving that police supported their movement? Were they actually supporting it?

Lastly and most importantly, how do we feel about the Jacob Blake shooting? What warrants the use of deadly force? Was there enough of that in this scenario to excuse the police from opening fire? Kunta cites a case that provides precedent against this shooting.

Full House In The Big House #BOBS037

Episode #37 In the age of the internet, privilege has begun to be reeled in. Well, only white privilege. Apparently we are pretending that college isn’t big business now. Kunta thinks it is extremely criminal for the Hollywood parents to have bribed or paid to allow their kids access to top notch schools. Were their kids dumb? Yes. Did they pay to get accepted? Yes. Is that privilege? Yes. Doesn’t everyone utilize their privilege? YES! Either way, these loving but privileged moms and dads will be asking for clemency to see their kids graduate. The Senate votes down the national emergency for the wall. Trump vetos this. What did you expect? This wall is getting built. Accept it now…accept it later. Kunta is proud that at least one white person gets it. Gavin Newsome, California’s Governor has ended the death penalty saving many lives. That is almost as good as when Donald Trump and Kim K pardoned the black lady. New Zealand’s shooter flashed the white power symbol and stated that Trump has renewed white supremacy’s identity. KingKunta feels like White supremacy is on the uptick. But I think we may be premature on the sky falling callout. Gavin Newsome ends Cali death penalty. NZ shooter. Manifesto praises trump as a renewed symbol of white identity and common purpose. Shooter flashed white power symbol . ...

When Oldies Stations Start Playing Your Songs

Black On Both Sides Episode #91 It has happened. When you turn on the oldies station nowadays, you hear all of your parents’ and grandparents’ favorite jams. But all of a sudden a familiar sound peaks your attention. Aye!!! That’s my Jam! You are well into the second verse before you realize what station you are STILL listening to. You tense up as you start to hear all of your young adulthood memories point their old aged, liver-spotted fingers at you. GASP! You’re old! And the oldies station just confirmed it. Meanwhile, August Alsina had one job. Could he fulfill it? Nope! Now he has Jada and Will on Facebook hoping that they can remain righteous in the face of a red table scandal. Goya goes to the white House and (alien)ates a great majority of their customer base. That Trump money must be really good. Your birth control may no longer be covered by your insurance. And Trump is requiring that your kids go back to school in the fall with no restrictions or risk losing fed funding. You must have kids so we can infect them at school. Keep your kids healthy. Trump is going to force them to be exposed.
