87 – Trump Embraces Racial Politics

Dog Whistle politics are the politics that frequently spew racial animus and division among different ethnic groups as a result of the constant and often times incendiary rhetoric. Many Southern Democrats, whom are now staunch conservative Republicans, used divisive language to stir up hatred for white voters against Liberals who were supported by civil rights organizations that were predominately black. The racial code words used by Richard Nixon in 1970 is the same language Donald Trump used during the 2016 Presidential Election. Racial Politics has re-emerged in America when it was said that we were in a “Post Racial” society. The documentary 13th featured on the broadcast, enlightens and educates many who were clearly unaware of the racial foundations previously laid to impact the mood and turnout of the 2016 election proving that America was never in a post racial society, just a well hidden one. Sooo…welcome to the Post Trump Society of Racial Politics.

86 – The Depth of Alzheimer’s

Alzheimer’s is a deadly disease that claimed ten thousand new victims each day. My daughter’s grandmother was one of those victims. My mother will be another when her time comes. Caring for my mother can be trying and exhausting at times, but its what you do for your loved one. I’m grateful for the opportunity and yet, I wouldn’t wish it upon anyone. Dan Gasby, husband of supermodel and restaurantuer, B. Smith, and Dr. Goldie Byrd shared their research and personal experience on the disease. The personal experience of Dan Gasby and his wife B. Smith helped me to better understand and cope with what my destiny with my mother will become. Many thanks to Dr. Goldie Byrd and Mr. Dan Gasby.

85 – “Only Crooks Make $25M Settlements”

The 2016 Presidential election featured the President-elect Donald Trump railing against Hillary Clinton calling her a crook because she was paid for making speeches after leaving the State Department. Well, we find out that Trumps initial cabinet selections have done the same thing, even getting paid from terrorist groups. Now, Mr. Never Settle, is settling the Trump University lawsuit for $25million something he said he would never do because he wasn’t wrong. Well, I guess proving that would have been harder to do than writing a check for $25M. Only crooks settle, and Donald Trump is in fact, a CROOK!
