S5 Ep5 You Going to Jail Now!
In episode 5 we take a break from our Meet the Negroes series to discuss current events and what’s going on in the news and pop culture. The discussion begins with the Carolina Panthers signing Eric Reid to play football. That topic pans out into delving into Black people seemingly giving up boycotting the NFL. Next we talk about Bill Cosby’s sentencing after his guilty verdict of sexual assault. We keep the ball rolling with another problematic, powerful man in the Kavanaugh Senate judiciary committee hearing. To close out the show with the firing of Amber Guyger, the former Dallas police officer who killed Botham Jean in his apartment.
