Welcome Back!

 

When the world is coming down on you there is nothing left to do, except... 

STAY STRONG!!!  We pay tribute to Apple who is fighting for 1st Amendment rights, but mostly they are fighting for the security and integrity of their company.  We tell lonely, Sleepy Dwarf, Ben Carson, to stay strong too.  If no one else will attack you, we will.  Dada 5000 almost died after a horrible fight with Kimbo Slice, he definitely needs to stay strong.

Also in this episode:  Presidential Election 2016 update, Dead Pool review, UFC 197, and the silliness that was Rhonda Rousey on the Ellen Show, Dumb Shit, and more...

Apologies for not posting on Tuesday.  We ran into technical issues, but we here now!!!

 

We've seen Beyone's Formation video and the World seen her performance at Super Bowl 50.  For some reason Queen Bee is receiving a lot of heat over both of these items.  This forced us to ask if she is truly socially conscious or is she getting grief for no reason?

Also in this episode:  New London Heroin update, Death of Scalia, GOP Debate, Batman v Superman trailer, NBA HOF, 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.

Antonio Cromartie (NY Jets CB) is expecting twins, the only problem is...besides the fact that he has 10 kids already...is that he claims to have had a vasectomy!  So how did this happen?  Could this have been the hand of a higher power, or a vasectomy that didn't take?

 

Also discussed in this episode:  Black people boycott the Oscars; Maine Governor blames black drug dealers named "Smoothie" and "Shifty" for drug problem and knocking up white women; UFC Fight night; Trump and the Birther argument; and more

After a phone interview during the Hate-A-Thon, that left one of the Bros Fletch without voice, we have finally found our opinion on the Bill Cosby scandal.  The court of public opinion has found Cosby guilty, and maybe some of it is false.  But is it all false?  Is Cosby another victim of sleeping with reckless women (See YouTube video:  Sleeping Behind Enemy Lines)?  Or has all of is dirty dealings finally come to light?

Also in this episode:  Costa Rican Love goes wrong:  Sondra Lynn, Freddie Gray and Tamir Rice, Black Women Matter just not hot comments gets student suspended, DeadPool trailer, Gilbert Arenas comment, and more.

Another show brings another deadly shooting in the U.S.  This leaves us with another question:  Who do we fear?  The media labels Radical Muslims as a threat to our National Security.  Yet, there is another group that is terrorizing just as much.  However they do not have the same label.  This group is Radical White Men.  Which do you fear?

Also in this episode:  Black Mamba retires, the movies Creed and Spectre, Black supporters of Trump, HRC millionaire meetings, and more...

The Bros Fletch are very thankful this holiday season.  Not so much for the Thanksgiving day turkey, but more for the crazy people who have decided to brave the masses in search of Black Friday sales.  Even a bigger THANK YOU to those who decided to take it one step further and attack each other in front of the stores.  Just like a holiday meal:  Let’s all enjoy the dumb shit together.
 
Other dumb shit in this episode:  Emily Faz rant on FB, Donald Trump double down, Planned Parenthood shooter, White House fence jumper, Charlie Sheen HIV positive, and much much more.

Since the Paris terrorist attacks, there has been debate on whether or not allow Syrian refugees into the United States.  Governors of States within the U.S. have vowed to "close their doors" and unwelcome these refugees despite the fact that they have been through a thorough process which include background checks, finger prints, etc.  Has fear of terrorism overtaken the U.S. responsibility of humanitarian aid?  The Brothers Fletch discuss.

Guess who’s back? After a brief week part, the Brothers Fletch are back to discuss a topic inspired by recent events as well as the comedy styling of the late GREAT Patrice O’Neal: Closed Door Racism! It seems that we are living in a society where we are only able to identify racists individuals after they are exposed by secret recordings or videos.

The Bros also talk about: the Carson Scholarship Scandal, Sexting Scandal in a CO high school, Yusaf Mack the Boxer turned Porno Actor, and more.

Thanks for listening!!!

The events concerning NBA Milwaukee Bucks player John Henson leave the Brothers Fletch questioning: Have Black people forgotten the power of their dollar?  Are they spending their money in places that respect them and their culture?  Have people forgotten about Black Wall Street, or is this a piece of history not taught/learned?

Discussed in this episode: the lawsuit filed by 11 women on the Napa Valley Wine Train, Derrick Rose's rape accusation, Ben Carson rise in the polls, Jon "Bones" Jones and more.

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.
