In this episode from early May, we spoke with then-Senator, now recently named Lieutenant Governor Brian Benjamin about what he's doing to put an end to bad policing in New York City.

The George Floyd Justice In Policing Act is toothless and wouldn’t have saved Mr. Floyd’s life. But there is another bill being presented in New York that could keep bad actor police officers from killing civilians. And today, Eboni and Dustin spea...

It’s nothing new, we just have more data to prove it now: The Feds have intentionally and disproportionately targeted Black Lives Matter protesters and organizers in order to stop the Black liberation movement.

Please understand that we have nothing for Dr. Dre. He just keeps ending up in headlines and this week it’s because his daughter is living in her car.

We’re also taking a good hard look at rapper Corey Miller and his hunger strike for better conditions in prison and Ezekiel Elliott’s damn ferocious a$$ dogs that kee...
