In part one of this two part topic, the Brothers Fletch step back from their usual format of News, Movies/Music/Sports, and Dumb Shit to discuss the U.S. History that has led Black people to this point in society. The attempt to answer the question, "Are We Post Racial?" led the brothers to discuss the current state of Black folks based on 2013 census information; the 13th, 14th, and 15th Amendment; lynchings (Billy Holiday singing "Strange Fruit"); 1964 Civil Rights Act, 1965 Voting Rights Act, Affirmative Action, and much much more. Much needed ground work of the history in order to understand the plight of the Black population.
See you on part two. Thanks for listening.
