Mississippi Burnin'

In this episode, I am joined by friend and fellow Mississippian Tim McCormick to discuss the state of our home state of Mississippi as well as some of the things going on in our hometown. The focus of this episode is on the ongoing saga of the MDOC prison system, more specifically Parchman Prison. We also discuss the recent turn of events at local establishments who adopt rules to discourage Black patronage and why Black folks need to stay away anyway....


War on Multiple Fronts

We are back with a new name but same focus and attitude....In this episode I discuss the deplorable living situation as well as the violence happening in multiple prisons in the state of MS. This situation is due to the failure and neglect of the MDOC and the huge failures of the administration as well as the state's administration. Prisoners are human beings and should not be robbed of their dignity and humanity. Black With No Chaser was the first and for days the only news source...


Amber Guyger Was Guilty From the Start

This episode focused on the trial and guilty verdict of Amber Guyger for the murder of Botham Jean. I have been following this since the beginning and have been waiting with baited breath for this exact verdict. Hopefully, they don't let her off easy with the sentencing phase. In my talk, I give a timeline of events from the murder up until the verdict with the hope of giving some clarity to those who may not be fully aware of what is going one. In the end, I pray for peace for Mr. Jean's...


A Tale of Two Justice Systems

This episode I start off discussing how flawed our justice system is and how the privileged get a leg up and an automatic benefit of the doubt while non privileged people of color do not. I illustrate this by detailing three cases and the stark differences between them and how those differences predetermined the outcomes. We do indeed live under two different justice systems. My second segment is politricks as usual where I once again talk about another gaffe made by our very underwhelming...


Juneteenth...A Day of Remembrance

Juneteenth, also known as Juneteenth Independence Day or Freedom Day, is an American holiday that commemorates the June 19, 1865, announcement of the abolition of slavery in the U.S. state of Texas, and more generally the emancipation of enslaved African Americans throughout the former Confederate States of America. In this episode, I talk about my experiences with Juneteenth as well as the ramifications of slavery and ill effects of it that we still see today. #juneteenth #emancipation...

In this episode I am joined by attorneys and activists who played an influential role in obtaining the release of Black mothers from jail for before, during and after Mother's Day. In this conversation we discussed the importance of this initiative as well as the flawed and unjust cash bail system.

Giants.....An Interview With James Bland

This episode I interview the Emmy nominated director, producer, actor, and content creator Mr. James Bland about his phenomenal web series Giants. This show is about the lives of three friends and how they handle the different Giants within their lives. This is a must see series that is well directed, well written, well acted, and has great cinematography. The best part about it is that it faces the taboo topics of the Black community head on and doesn't blink. THIS IS A MUCH WATCH SERIES....

Nipsey Hussle is Bigger Than Music

His death was one of the biggest and most influential losses of my generation and one that I will not soon get over.

The suicide rate cited in that study is roughly...
