And the academy award goes to...Brown Sugar add
HEYY!!!! OK we slacked and missed a week but were back! In this weeks episode we are talking about Kevin Harts recent decision to step down from hosting the Oscars. Years back Kevin tweeted some things that the LGBTQ community wasn't pleased about. Kevin has apologized for these tweets throughout the years. Ironically, two days after announcing that he would be hosting the oscars in February of next year. The tweets resurfaced and the academy told Kevin to apologize for his comments or he won't host. We are also discussing a bill being introduced that that would make lynching a federal hate crime. Between 1882-1986 over 200 anti-lynching bills were presented to the House. NONE have been approved. Lynching has been recorded over the last 100 years or more in all states except four. Danye Jones lynching is the most recent & publicized. We have to continue to spread the news and keep the conversation going.The bill needs the support of 60 senators in order to pass. Not one Republican has backed the bill. This goes back to the importance of voting as well. Lets not talk about impact, lets be the impact. We talk about a slew of other things. Get locked into this episode. As always we encourage you all to do things with love.

Vote for What?Brown Sugar add
With the midterm election hype settled down, debates on why and why not voting is important still lingers in the crevasses of social media. Creating a divide between woke woke woke woke people, and people with common sense (no shade). We don't consider ourselves politicians, political commentators, or journalist of politics. But we've always talked about the importance of knowing whats going on in congress. How it works, who our representatives and senators are, and their policies. In this episode we talk about all of these things including why its important to vote, and why midterm elections are more important than presidential elections plus a lot more. We hope you enjoy this episode. Keep an ear out for Amira's sweet treat of the week. As always we encourage you all to do things with love.
Danye JonesBrown Sugar add
Hello everyone. Before we get into what this episode is about we want to make sure that you took the time out of your day to exercise your right to vote. Do research on each candidates policies and figure out what you support and go vote!!! In todays episode we are talking about diddy opening his own charter school in his home town for underprivileged youth. We also talk about the idiot who sent a bomb to Obamas home. How did someone get his address so easily? Was this a inside job? Given that the midterm election is going on it doesn’t surprise us that someone would try sending a bomb to Obamas house to prevent him from supporting candidates and giving speeches. Our main topic is about the mysterious death of Danye Jones. He was found lynched in the back of his mothers home. The catch is Danye’s mother Melissa Mckinnies is a activist for the black lives matter movement. And was heavily involved in protest in Ferguson involving the killing of Mike Brown. Police are investigating his death as a suicide, but his mother disagrees and we discuss evidence that proves she on to something. Keep a ear out for Sweet Revenge of the week during this episode.

Second ChancesBrown Sugar add
Hello everyone and happy Monday to you all. In this episode we are discussing Brett Kavanaugh. The Senate recently voted to send him to the Supreme Court. Even though Kavanaugh wasn’t convicted, this leads us into our main topic of discussion. Should citizens previously convicted of a crime still be eligible to run for public office. At the end of the day a crime is a crime. But stealing clothing out of a store when you were 17 is different from college drinking that leads to a innocent woman being raped. So what’s ok and whats not ok? Wait.. Crimes aren’t ok regardless of what it is right? Does that 17 year old teen deserve a second chance (YES), does that rapist deserve a second chance (FUCK NO). But these are conversations dividing people in America right now. Should there be a qualification for second chances? We give our thoughts and opinions on this topic. Our second topic of discussion is friendships. In friendship there is a support department. Are your friends required to support your business? If you feel your friends are lacking in the support department do you drop them? In Actuality nobody has to support you. But surely your friends do right? We go on to talk about our experience with this touchy topic. Lastly but definitely not least. We are bringing back SWEET REVENGE & SWEET TREAT. Amira is kicking off this week with sweet treat, so be sure to keep a open ear for it during the episode. We hope you enjoy this episode and as always we encourage your all to do things with love.

She has recently been charged with manslaughter. This is her second killing while being a Police Officer in Dallas. Its been said that maybe Jean and Guyger were in relationship. Which lead us into a different topic. What is the perspective of a white woman raising black children. We recently had a conversation with a friend (who will remain anonymous).
