Ep. 20 - The Essence of Freedom, Fathers & Fast Food

This episode was recorded on the 4th of July so we of course had to acknowledge the cultural phenomenon that is the Essence Festival of Culture that takes place annually in New Orleans each year celebrating Black culture, sisterhood, and economic empowerment. Jamal & Khalilah also discuss Black folks, Juneteenth and our complicated relationship with "Independence Day."

Plus, the co-hosts discuss a Burger King veterans' perfect attendance, Robert Kelly (R Kelly) being sentenced to 30 years in prison, Camille Cosby, and Clarence Thomas.

Key Quotes

“...disagreements are fine, but if you are feeling like: 'Are they calling me racist?' If you're asking the question 'Am I racist?' You would know better than we would.”
