One episode into the new episodes of Ozark that dropped and I’m like

Good day to remind people that while Jackie Robinson exhibited grace, he was very outspoken about racial oppression, supported the Black Panthers, and criticized MLB for the lack of black people in leadership positions. He also later did not sing or stand for the national anthem.

Some of y’all are going to try to get jokes off at my expense but I’m going to be fine — it’s called a contract, learn about it. But there are people who are part of our show staff who do not have the same protection. Good people will be out of work. But go off tho.

My guest this week on @JHillUnbothered  is my homie @danamo . It’s one of my favorite conversations ever on the pod. We discuss her new book, “Shine Bright: A Very Personal History of Black Women in Pop,” her origin story, and best concerts ever. LISTEN —>

A good day to remind the news media that they should talk to and platform black and brown women when discussing abortion rights. And yes, this unfortunately needs to be said.

Warriors definitely been playing with that we got a substitute teacher energy the last two games.

This is a crazy, heartbreaking story. A woman was scammed out of $800K because she thought she was in an intimate friendship with Leonardo DiCaprio. Turns out it was a scamming ring out of Atlanta. Wild story.

Really enjoyed this column in the @freep  about the lack of black diners in downtown Detroit. I mostly stay downtown when I’m home and I’m often jarred by the fact you wouldn’t know Detroit was 80 percent black if you ate downtown. What’s going on here?

I’m out of thoughts and prayers, because clearly this country doesn’t give a fuck. The point of praying is the hope for something better. And that better is never going to come. If anything, I feel rage and compassion for the people in Buffalo.

I have no idea who did this, but if you know, find them and tag them. One of the best things I’ve seen on this app this week

Me, watching people who criticized Colin Kaepernick for his nonviolent protest post MLK quotes today

Isn’t it amazing how upset the police get when you know your rights?

If you vote for Donald Trump, you are a racist. You have no wiggle room.

People need to understand how huge this is. Maya Moore is one of the most decorated basketball players of all time and she halted her career IN HER PRIME to right an injustice. This is just amazing.

@benandjerrys  just put all other corporate statements to shame. THIS is how you put out a statement.

Just remember, these are elected officials and our tax dollars are being used for this

Years from now, the NFL will be embarrassed it kept a player out of the league for being a humanitarian.

Just in case you had no idea what institutional racism looks like

Taylor Swift going hard at white supremacists and Kanye West is buddies with them. Go figure.
