In this episode I speak with Compton, CA native Mr. Low Rider himself Thomas "TJ" Loftin on fabrication car parts and restoring classic vehicles.  Some of which were featured in the summer blockbuster hit movie "Straight Outta Compton".  We also speak about the importance of supporting black businesses whether they are in your neighborhood or online.  We discussed his move into the real estate development industry that has brought him other revenue streams and the importance of managing your wealth.  And one of my personal favorite part of the conversation was speaking how renowned Dr. Sebi gave his rare endorsement to TJ Loftin.

Love it or hate it, having two political nominees running for president of the United States that no one wants to vote for has changed the discussion.  Are these 2 party voting systems all we have to look forward to in the future?  Will there be a change that will include all people without leaving anyone out?  Can we have more than 2 systems in a democratic country?

Friend of the show Marcus Gates and I discuss these issues and more.

Every time someone takes a stand, it seems that people in the dominant society tote someone of color to start "Shucking and Jiving."  The mouthpiece this time, as always, is Stacey Dash.  Not only did Stacey Dash speak out against a Black boycott of the Oscars, but she goes as far to say there should be no Black History Month or BET Network.  Here is our take on this matter

Also in this episode:  Water crisis in MI; Cam Newton; Iowa Caucus; Trump leading the poll; The People vs. O.J. Simpson and much more.
