    Ep. 455 - Jim Clyburn just crushed qualified immunity

    Yesterday Congressman Jim Clyburn, one of the leading Democrats in the country, basically crushed any chance qualified immunity had of passing on the federal level. It's disgusting. Let me break it down.

    Ep. 454 - Olympic Athletes Should Ignore the Ban on Black Lives Matter Gear & Protests

    It's weird, but the Summer Olympics are less than 3 months away. And athletes are just now starting to get detailed notifications that they can't wear anything that says or represents "Black Lives Matter" in any way whatsoever. Black power fists are banned. Taking a knee is banned. But they should all ignore this...together.

    Ep. 451 - I'm never going to stop raising money for these families

    Ep. 451 - I'm never going to stop raising money for these families

    Yesterday we raised nearly $100,000 for Myon Burrell, who was wrongly convicted for a murder he had nothing to do with in Minneapolis nearly 20 years ago. He was just a kid and spent 18 years of his life in prison. I'm so grateful for everybody who gave. And I just want to be clear - no matter how many lies people tell on me across the Internet, I am literally never going to stop raising money for these families impacted by police violence, racial injustice, and mass incarceration.

    Ep. 450 - This needs to happen in your hometown

    Ep. 450 - This needs to happen in your hometown

    This past week New York City announced that all non-violent mental health calls will be rerouted away from the NYPD and sent instead to mental health professionals. This amounts to nearly 154,000 calls a year - or over 400 calls a day to 911. When it gets instituted, this is going to change the city and change policing in a major way.

A Man Who’s For Justice....And Who’s For The People!

I’ve followed SK for some years now and I can always trust that his breakdown of injustices across our country will always be up to date and given raw. He’s for the people and I’ll always support him in fighting for the rights of the people. We are blessed to have a man with such integrity and bravery to be among us in this era. We need more people like him.

Thank you...

For educating us. You and your teams work are a driving force for unveiling much of what the world was meant to stay forever oblivious to, especially white folk in the US. This unveiling is fundamental to the dismantling of white supremacist institutions and the PIC.

So informative and needed for this moment in time. To block out all the unnecessary noise of ridiculous comments, backlash from people who are afraid of change in this country and just pure ignorance from people that have never stood up for anything a day in their own lives, is pretty courageous. This platform is true and will always have my support! Thank you for such great content each and every day!
