The Green Book  

In the Jim Crow era of racial segregation, travelling in the United States was fraught with difficulties if you were black. At best it was inconvenient, as white-owned businesses refused to serve African American motorists, repair their cars or offer them hotel accommodation. At worst, travel could be life-threatening if you walked into the wrong bar in the wrong town. That's why in 1936 Victor H Green, a Harlem postal worker, published the first edition of The Green Book. The guide listed hotels, restaurants, bars and service stations which would serve African Americans and was an attempt, in Victor Green's words, "to give the Negro traveller information that will keep from him running into difficulties and embarrassments". 'Embarrassments' seems rather a tame word for the outright hostility and physical danger which many black travellers experienced in segregation-era America. The Green Book became a catalogue of refuge and tolerance in a hostile and intolerant world. Alvin Hall hits the highway, Green Book in hand, to document a little-known aspect of racial segregation: the challenges - for mid-20th century America's new black middle class - of travelling in their own country. Alvin's journey starts in Tallahassee, Florida, where he was born and raised, takes him through Alabama and Tennessee and concludes in Ferguson, Missouri. The guide ceased publication soon after the passing of the Civil Rights Act in 1964. But, as Alvin discovers in Ferguson, many African Americans still feel far from safe as they drive. Alvin asks whether the Green Book ceased publication too soon.

Ep225 - Mixed Mental Arts: Bryan Uses a Roundhouse Kick to Shatter The Echo Chambers. Aw yeah!  

America's two political parties can't seem to solve their problems or figure out how to talk to each other and that's going to make for a lot of awfully awkward Thanksgivings. Fortunately, there's a group of people who know how to understand both sides and understand what each culture gets right and what each culture gets wrong. You are part of that group of people. You are Mixed Mental Artists. You are mankind's last, best hope. Can you handle the pressure? Can you? Well, you're going to have to because humanity needs you. So, let's get into the dojo so we can train and shatter the echo chambers that have built up around each culture. In the red corner, we have the conservatives weighing at 300 pounds. On their side, they have a willingness to talk about culture mattering and helping determine success and they have a love and respect for the Founding Fathers. In the blue corner, we have the liberals weighing in at 150 pounds soaking wet. On their side, they have a dominance of the media and academia but a lack of familiarity with what the science actually says. They also are so focused on where the Founding Fathers didn't fully live their principles that they have a hard time seeing all the things they got right like the profound benefits of a culture founded on the idea that you could learn anything from books. Who will win in a fight? We don't know. Who cares? Because it's much more interesting to watch them fuck. Not with their genitals although at this point there's so much tension in the air the sex would be amazing. No, we want them to fuck with their minds. It's time to get it on. Aw yeah! Let's have some blue-red idea sex and make beautiful purple babies. You're welcome, America. And the world. While you're over there fighting, we're over her fucking…with ideas. Yeah, baby. Idea sex. The kind of sex where you don't catch STDs. The only thing you catch is wisdom. Let's make that shit contagious!

Late Night Live - 2016-12-06  

Shapiro reflects on a wild year in US politics. The National Museum of African American History and Culture faced a mountain of obstacles to get off the ground - it had no funding, no government support, no site and not a single artefact in its collection. But an unlikely coalition of supporters which include civil rights veterans, private funders like Oprah Winfrey and even George W. Bush, managed to vault every hurdle and open what is America's first and only museum dedicated to black life.

12/5/16-Mark Levin Audio Rewind  

There is nothing irresponsible with President elect Donald Trump’s phone call with the President of Taiwan, it was outstanding. China is flexing its muscle, stealing mineral rights, claiming international waters and airspace and Trump can’t take a phone call from Taiwan’s president? China is not going to war over this, but now they understand that Trump is not President Obama when it comes to foreign policy. After that, there are some people who have revealed themselves as dishonest when it comes to capitalism. They are playing the populist game by pandering and promoting Trump’s trillion dollar infrastructure plan. Infrastructure stimulus is based on the Broken Windows Fallacy. When you take a trillion dollars out of the economy you have destroyed a trillion dollars in the private sector. This money could have created far more jobs than the state could. After that, Vice President elect Mike Pence has given up on capitalism and is now choosing authoritarianism when it comes to the economy. Protectionism is not capitalism but it is cronyism and authoritarianism. Finally, John Bolton is the absolute best candidate for the position of Secretary of State. Jon Huntsman, Bob Corker, Mitt Romney and other candidates would get eaten up by America’s enemies, such as China.
