Jokes >>> facts, data over anecdotes, don’t argue with us if you got no citations.
The Drop Squad Episode 22: What's Real?
This week, Ali, Q, Nina, Reny and Jamel talk the Gucci - Jeezy Verzuz, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris' GoFundMe, millionaires needing financial literacy classes not bailouts, police, prison, and death penalty abolition and Meg thee Stallion's album while contemplating the fact that we may or may not be in a simulation right now.
Episode 21: Who Is The Working Class Anyway?
Reny, Jamel, Q and Nina talk about liberal narratives arising post-election to protect their negro-whisper positions and bags, the fake "radical" masks falling off left and right, and the problem with pretending that words don't have recognized meaning and media pundits and rich liberals collectively pretending not to understand who "the working class" is.
Episode 20: The Internet is Not Your Friend
Nina, Jamel, Q, Reny and Ali talk about rappers who can't rap, the inconsistency and selectiveness of "cancelling" people and what it actually accomplishes, and this circus of a failure of an election cycle, as well as why it's good to be distrustful of folks online and in online political spaces because these folks are not our friends.
Episode 19: A Very Conspiracy Episode
Jamel, Nina, Reny and Ali get into conspiracy theories, speak to which ones we believe are real and the validity and utility of conspiracy theories as a means of questioning the movements and motivations of our government and powerful people and groups. We also speak to our own political journeys, how we developed our politics, and how we hold grace for each other and Black people throughout our growth.

Episode 18: The League of Revolutionary Black Workers

Episode 17: The Democrats Still Aren't Gonna Read Your Letters
In this episode, Jamel, Reny, Q and Nina talk about the economic impacts of COVID on Black people economically, including small businesses, and the fact that how money is produced and circulated in the US is a lie. Additionally, we discuss Black liberal academics and media pundits trying to scapegoat Black men to elevate Joe Biden in the hopes of getting more jobs, access and validation from whiteness via the democratic party.
