VA Governor Ralph Northam is under fire for a yearbook photo that (allegedly) shows him donning either blackface or KKK regalia. He’s not stepping down. Jay tells you why his excuse is BS and how this is actually a good thing in the long term.
In a “you can’t make this sh*t up” move, the Polk County Iowa Democratic Party wants Cardi B to stop by and talk politics. Jay muses on the ridiculousness of this all and a few other long shots who just joined the race.
Lifestyle guru B. Smith once owned an empire of restaurants and clothing lines. Now she has Alzheimer’s and her husband has a live-in white girlfriend. Black Twitter is blasting him, but is there more to the story?
A Rochester, NY weatherman uttered a racial epithet on air and got fired. But according to him, it was just a slip of the tongue. Jay tells you what really happened and why Jeremy Kappell actually got fired.
Hawaii Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard is eyeing a 2020 run, but is on her second marriage and not (yet) a mom. Corey Booker is a bachelor. Do Presidential candidates need to be married with kids, and will voters judge them differently if they can’t relate on that level?
The NFL has a fresh controversy on its hands as video of Chiefs star running back Kareem Hunt beating a woman emerges online. Should Hunt get a second chance? If so, what does that say about the NFL’s stance on domestic abuse?
Cindy Hyde-Smith is an actual sitting US Senator from the state of Mississippi. 2 weeks ago she made some reprehensible public remarks about lynching. She’s in a run-off in 2 weeks from now vs a black man.
Do you really believe a 47 year old former lawyer who has worked in news agencies for decades didn’t know blackface was offensive until yesterday? Of course not. Jay explains Megyn Kelly’s poorly veiled ratings hustle.
How does the GOP keep an iron fist on its base despite continually taking things away from that base? An LBJ quote explains it all. Jay discusses voting against economic self interests, Trump’s imaginary Muslims and more.
Can anyone upset the Warriors or can you just ignore the league until May? Jay tells you why the Western Conference is still must watch basketball and makes a fearless prediction about the Lakers playoff hopes with Lebron James in tow.
Remember during the Obama years when the GOP continually hounded him about exploding the deficit and debt? Well, Trump’s tax cut is causing more of the same. Jay explains the hypocrisy and how the Democrats can benefit next month.
The Supreme Court hearings yesterday were a made-for-TV spectacle and probably will go down as one of the weirdest moments in American political history. Jay’s got the rundown in case you missed it, and a prediction on what’s next for Kavanaugh.
In perhaps one of the oddest examples of fear mongering ever witnessed, an NRA TV host recently accused Thomas And Friends of being racist for trying to integrate more female characters? Does that make any sense? Jay breaks down this not-so-clever sleight of hand.
A majority of NFL and NBA players are in financial trouble within a few years of retirement, and Kevin Garnett, who made nearly $350M over the course of his career is the latest casualty. Jay tells you how it happened and how players might avoid this all-too-common fate.
Given all its controversies, is the NFL on the verge of being overtaken by the NBA? It sounds ridiculous, but there’s plenty of data to suggest the NBA will be America’s Sport in another generation. Jay has the numbers to back it up.
Instead of taking her negotiations public, Wanda Sykes let her agents and managers do their job and get her an offer she wanted. Does this prove that Mo’Nique was a victim of racism/sexism, or merely that her tactics for getting the number she wanted were poorly executed? Jay weighs in with his analysis.
Another Tuesday night, another Black Candidate pulls off an upset. Ayanna Pressley blew out a 10 term incumbent in Massachusetts. With black candidates in the running for big wins come November, is there really any valid excuse for being black and not voting anymore? Jay goes in.
Michael Jordan once infamously said “Republicans buy shoes too”. But after the announcement that Nike signed Colin Kaepernick to a new deal for their “Just Do It” campaign, many who decry the anthem protests are doing something quintessentially American: burning their Nike gear. Jay explains the folly on both sides of this debate.
Remember 2016 when Donald Trump called Ted Cruz’ wife ugly and his father an aspiring JFK murderer? Of course you do. But when you’re desperate, suddenly old slights don’t matter as much as keeping your seat. So Trump’s goin’ to Texas.
Jack Ryan tries to pass off Jim from The Office as an international spy/badass. But can you buy Pam’s husband as a stone cold killing machine? Jay tells you if this is even worth a look with his review.
The Tribalism Is Real. Trump continues to get high approval ratings from Republican voters, but does that really mean they approve of him or are they just unwilling to tell the “fake news media” they don’t?
Can black folks swim? Ever been to a “pool party” and wondered why everyone was just standing about in Timbs? There’s some truth to every stereotype. After a recent tragedy in the DC Metro Area, Jay goes in deep (pun intended) on this topic.
