Hypocritical clowns

They have spoken about the BLM movement on numerous podcasts, but for what reasons? Its all pathetic virtue signalling to appease their audience, they wont actually begin hiring black podcasters or staff.

The reason I know that their conversations about BLM are disingenuous is because they refuse to call out Stephen Jackson for his anti semitic comments. In this times we should be standing up for all minorities, not just the ones that get you the most PC points. But clearly that is all that these two clowns care about. Was a fan for a while but not a chance that im listening again.
