talk about access to capital when it comes to entrepreneurs
and grants. Well, I want to talk about a fund,
the Social Change Fund United. They're investing two hundred and
thirty thousand dollars into two new initiatives to help uplift
the black community and it's being led by Carmelo Anthony,
Chris Paul, and Dwyane Wade. Okay, all right, so the

(02:00):
initiatives we got next that's going to help provide youth
with access to build entrepreneurial skills to become future business leaders.
And the Legacy Initiative and partnership with Stackwell Capital will
supply six grants to minority owned, LA based small businesses.
So shout out to them for doing that, because I'm
a big fan of you know, companies extending capital to businesses,

(02:25):
especially startups and small businesses that really need it.

Speaker 2 (02:29):
So money is needed.

Speaker 1 (02:30):
Yes, let me tell you something. Money is a major issue. Yes,
all right, Well, who do you guys want to shine
a light on? Eight hundred and two nine fifty one
fifty is a number, Ryan, who do you want to
shine a light on?

Speaker 5 (02:41):
I want to shine a light on my neighbor, Diamond,
because she really goes real hard for me and anytime
I'm struggling, she's right there to put a positive light
on me.

Speaker 1 (02:50):
Notice your neighbor. That's dope, because let me tell you something,
neighbors are important. Yes, I got to deal with a
terrible one coming up, a headache. Yes, that could be awful,
So that's great.

Speaker 5 (03:01):

Speaker 2 (03:04):
Nice.

Speaker 1 (03:05):
I'm so happy to hear that. I know I'm a
good neighbor, but everybody else.

Speaker 6 (03:10):
Now I believe it.

Speaker 1 (03:11):
I believe it. Well, shine a light on her, and
I know you do the same for her too, right always, Okay.

Speaker 6 (03:18):
That's what we're here for each.

Speaker 5 (03:19):
Other all the time.

Speaker 1 (03:20):
All right, Well, thank you for Colin, thank you. All right.
Well that was Shina Light eight hundred and nine fifty
just in case you couldn't get through. And when we
come back, we have your Ye, t let's talk about Glorilla.
She was arrested for DUI and all kinds of issues
here with this, so thank god nobody was hurt. But
we'll discuss it. It's way up, it says the rooms

(03:44):
from industry shade to all of gossip out. Send Angela's
feeling that EyeT, it's way up on Angela. Ye, Jasmine
brand is here.

Speaker 2 (03:52):
I'm not just any brand, I'm my own brand.

Speaker 1 (03:55):
Yes, all right, let's get into this et. Glorilla was
arrested for d UI. Acording to a police report that
TMD obtained, this would happen on Tuesday morning, okay, and
she was booked on suspicion of driving under the influence
and consuming, possessing an open alcoholic beverage container and also
on a separate traffic charge. They said she made a
U turn at a red light around four am. The

(04:17):
officer said he smelled marijuana and alcohol inside the car.
Glorilla told him that she had been drinking that evening.
She wouldn't say how much. She took a filled sobriety
test and struggled to stay on her feet. They said
she also did a number of other tests but failed
most of them. You know when they make you, yeah,
touch your nose and walk in a straight line. She
also was asked to take a breathalyzer test, but refused
to do that. They said she also had a wardrobe

(04:40):
malfunction during that time. She was taken to jail just
after six am, and then released on bond a few
hours later. Somebody did come to pick her up. Now.
She did then posting delete a selfie where she has
a bottle on top of her head that was wack. Yeah,
And so you can't I think trivialize something like that.

Speaker 2 (05:00):
Yeah, because it's kind of serious. Kind it's very.

Speaker 1 (05:02):
Serious, and she's fortunate that nothing happened. You know, sometimes
things like getting pulled over at a time like that,
you have to look at it like thank goodness that
nobody was hurt. Nobody was hurt because it might have
been Fate's way of protecting you for something that could
happen in the future, and also to let you know,
don't do that again and put yourself in that position
ever again, now that something like this has happened.

Speaker 2 (05:23):
So it is serious.

Speaker 1 (05:24):
Look at this as a warning because I saw a
lot of people in the comments talking about being affected
by a jump driver or something happening to somebody they
love or to them.

Speaker 2 (05:32):
Right, you're right, it's serious.

Speaker 1 (05:33):
All right now, Dame Lillard's ex wife posted on her
instant story Free Free Glow. Lillard has tegt sister wife. Okay, so,
as you recalled, Lorella did try to shoot her shot
at him before, all right. Lebron James has put out
a new teaser for The Shop and this is for
their show The Shop. The teesser for the upcoming episode

(05:54):
is Travis Scott and Ice Spice. They're gonna be joining
Lebron and whether they're saying is a great episode of
The Shop. Here is what that sounds like.

Speaker 7 (06:03):
I don't make music to when Grammy's but it's what
that Grammy like used to mean. Is what I always
hold on too. But it's crazy. It's like you know,
raps not on TV, right, So it's like you sit
there and then they air to show the Rap Award
at like two or one thirty, but you got to
perform at like eight thirty. So imagine like losing at
one thirty and having to sit there for seven hours,

(06:24):
like like I want to just dip.

Speaker 1 (06:27):
All right, Well, the Shop is in his seventh season,
by the way, A long time. That's a run and
it doesn't look like it's going anywhere anytime soon. All right,
Kanye West, there's some new legal issues of something that's
going on. Plice are investigating after cop say they were
told he punched a man in the face, but the
guy that he punchs allegedly pushed or grabbed his wife, Bianca.

(06:51):
They said that Bianca and Kanye took off after the
alleged altercation. The alleged victim did not require treatment for injuries,
but according to a rap for Kanye Wes, he says
that what really happened was Kanye's wife, Bianca, was physically assaulted.
He put his hands under her dress, directly on her body,
grabbed away, spun her around, and blew her kisses. She

(07:11):
was battered and sexually assaulted. And that's the reason why
Kanye punched this man.

Speaker 2 (07:16):
Yeah, this will get you punched.

Speaker 1 (07:17):
Yeah, well this punch if that and these are all
allegations right now, and so if that is indeed what happened, punched,
you got punched. Hey, we don't feel bad for you,
all right, Well that is your Yet when we come back,
we have about last night. That's where we discussed what
we did last night. BIZ watched yet another show. We
have to get out of the house. But it was

(07:37):
it was a great situation. You watched all eight episodes
I did yesterday. It's way up.

Speaker 4 (07:45):
So about last night, Yes went down.

Speaker 1 (07:51):
It's way up on Mandela ye Jasmine brand is here,
Yes and last night, so last night I was in
the house. It took me about four hours. Got my
hair brady yesterday. Shout out to my girl Destiny aka
hair Weave Murder for the hair braiding. I used my
ma Yell Organics products because they have a great hair
braiding gel and they also have this anti shedding shampoo

(08:12):
conditioner and leaving that I use.

Speaker 2 (08:14):
Okay, I need to use that in preparation.

Speaker 1 (08:16):
I always watched my own hair before I get my
hair braided myself, good idea, and then I blow it out.
And then she came and you know my hair. I
like my hair to be nice and clean. She worked
her magic, worked her magic. But during that time we
had a time. Yes, watching Unlocked on Netflix. Now, I
had already started to watch this, but I was like
in and out of the room, so I wasn't paying
as much attention as I should. It's a jail experiment

(08:39):
and there's some controversy behind it. A lot of people
are talking about the show. It's one of the top
shows on Netflix. By the way, what did you think,
because Jas when you watched all eight episodes.

Speaker 2 (08:49):
I was locked in to Unlock. It was super entertaining
and interesting. It made me more compassionate about what, you know,
these men that are incarcerated to go through when they're
locked up, and you know, can you imagine being, you know,
in a sale for twenty three hours and only being
able to come out for one hour?

Speaker 1 (09:05):
I cannot. And some people feel like, oh, well, they're criminals,
but some people aren't. Some people are in jail for
crimes they didn't commit. Some people made mistakes, like especially
is the Old Heads versus the young heads. Yeah, you
have a lot of sympathy for you know, a lot
of the younger, like he's twenty years old, but lata
and you're like a mistake or and also want something
wrong one time and now it's permanently this is your situation. Yeah,

(09:28):
but they are exploring what happens when unit cells are
unlocked for six weeks and they have to create a
community and structure for themselves. That's the whole idea of it.

Speaker 2 (09:38):
Yeah, it was really good. They had like little little
they have personality, so you got a lot of personality.
My favorite was a true story. Okay, Randy aka Randy Yeah,
Randal Randall.

Speaker 1 (09:49):
All right, So yes, if you guys haven't seen it,
make sure you check that out. Also, because we've been
talking a lot about clean slate, we've been talking a
lot about justice for justice impacted people, yes, and rights
that people should have. Just because you're in jail doesn't
mean you should be treated like you're not a human being. Also,
all right, So we did that. But because I was
sitting there so long, I also was on social media

(10:12):
a lot, and I was watching what was happening with
Ella Bans shout out to sleigh by Ella. She had
an issue going back and forth with another woman who
I guess is saying that that was her man. That yes,
that Ella is messing with her man. We don't know.
Her name is Marci Diaz. Now we don't know the

(10:32):
truth behind this or not, but what we do know
is Marci Diaz posted a picture of Ella and her ex.

Speaker 2 (10:38):
By the way, because that is her ex. Her ex
look good too, I will. He looked like a little
young Bob Marley. Sorry, go ahead, and she said so.

Speaker 1 (10:44):
For a few weeks, I've been getting a feeling that
my ex was messing with someone in my close friends
because my stories kept getting leaked. Then a couple of
weeks ago, I found a group picture of him and
Ella them at Player. He denied it, but then his
own homeboys told everyone they mess around, and that's how
I got the confirmation. But it's funny because I really
used to do business with Ella. She was cool. But
that's like grimy because you're still with your baby daddy.

(11:06):
I've been new for a couple of weeks, but now
I'm getting dms every day about it, and I just
want to expose how grimy these women be. Lmao. I'm
gonna tell you this now. I do not play fair.
So I guess she's saying she has pictures and other
kinds of things. But she said, for the people who
don't know, I used to be cool with Ella. We
knew each other for over ten years from Instagram. She
was my ambassador a couple of times from Marcy skin

(11:27):
and shop fashion Figs. She used to come to Miami.
She asked me a couple of times to hang out
with her. I did on one occasion, and we always
stay cool. Now she messages with my ex boyfriend that
I just broke up with a couple of months ago.

Speaker 2 (11:38):
Okay, so they used to be They did some business
together and they're like friendly.

Speaker 1 (11:42):
Right, but they hang out one time? Yeah, yeah, yeah.
So we want you guys to pick a side and see,
do you think that this woman is wrong Marcy Diaz?
Is she wrong for coming to LA I mean, that's
her ex, that's not her current boyfriend. But on the
flip side of things, they did do business together. They
do know each other. They've been friends for ten years,
she said, And she said she's been snitching on her

(12:03):
to him. Found my close friend's story because she was
in her close friends, just like I was in hers.

Speaker 2 (12:08):
I don't like that. Don't be snitching on me.

Speaker 1 (12:10):
And then she did tell some personal business.

Speaker 2 (12:12):
I don't like that.

Speaker 1 (12:12):
All right, Well, what do you guys think? Pick aside?
Who's right and who's wrong? It's Elebans versus Marci Diaz
eight hundred two nine two fifty one fifty.

Speaker 4 (12:20):
It's not just right or wrong. It's about what you believe.
It's time to pick aside and stay there.

Speaker 1 (12:28):
All right, it's way yu put Angela. Ye, I'm Angela.

Speaker 3 (12:30):
Yee.

Speaker 1 (12:30):
Jasmine Brand is here, Good morning, Angela, and we're doing
pick aside today. We're talking about Elbans versus Marcy Diaz.
Elbanz was I guess acquaintances, I don't know, friends? Cool?
They knew each other through business, right, Yeah, Marci had
hired Elebanz as a promoter, industry promoter, what do you
call it? Influencer? Influencer Yeah, for her products previously. But

(12:52):
they've also hung out one time, yeah.

Speaker 2 (12:55):
One time, yeah, right, and they were they were close
friends on Instagram.

Speaker 1 (12:58):
Yeah, they're in their close friends and they've known each
other for ten years. And now Elebanz is allegedly she
believes dating her ex okay, yes, and so she thinks
that that is wrong and she's upset about it. So
people are now taking a side on who's right and
who's wrong.

Speaker 2 (13:12):
What do you think you're asking me? Oh, I don't
think la bands did anything wrong. I mean they were
cool for ten years and only hung out one time.
I think you know the boyfriend's not is an ex boyfriend.

Speaker 1 (13:24):
I think sometimes on social media, when people follow each
other and they're in each other's close friends, they think
they know each other better than they really do in
real life. Yeah, and so I understand that it's her ful.
I feel like she's hurt. She not that long ago
with her ex yep, and so now she feels like, Wow,
that's who you with now. So I think she's upset
about it.

Speaker 2 (13:40):
It didn't matter who it was.

Speaker 1 (13:41):
And Elea Banz is like, I've got your man, she's posting.
So I don't like that, Angela, Yeah yeah, but the
part I don't like you trying to put all my
stuff out there publicly, so I might as well own it.
And so for me, I just feel like I've had
things like that done to me before by people, and
I had to realize it's just not really tight and
it'll be awful.

Speaker 2 (13:59):
Also people have done that.

Speaker 1 (14:00):
Yeah, definitely, and it'll be awkward, you know, moving forward.
But if we weren't that tight to begin with and
we just know each other, yeah, you know you were
just out my close friends from that one. All right,
what do you guys think? Pick aside Kurston, what do
you think it's mostly the one who's.

Speaker 5 (14:14):
Ex boyfriend it was?

Speaker 1 (14:15):
Yes, I'm with Hart because I think if that was
your friend or appointed at any point, that's.

Speaker 6 (14:20):
Just somebody who was off womens in my eyes.

Speaker 1 (14:22):
Okay, So it doesn't matter how close you guys are,
because this is also kind of like the Porsche Fealin situation.
They said they weren't that tight, they just knew each other.

Speaker 8 (14:31):
Yeah.

Speaker 9 (14:31):
No, I just feel like if thesip for your answer
to hang out, you.

Speaker 1 (14:35):
Know, even if it's only one, I just feel like.

Speaker 6 (14:37):
There's somebody who's off womens in my eyes.

Speaker 10 (14:39):
Okay, I.

Speaker 1 (14:42):
Right big with the girl code?

Speaker 6 (14:43):
Thank you, thank you.

Speaker 1 (14:45):
Lindsey. What's good girl? What do you think about this?
Ella Bands versus Marcy Diaz? What is girl code to you?
You know, they they were acquaintances.

Speaker 2 (14:56):
And it's cool, they get business together.

Speaker 1 (14:58):
But now Ella is messing with her at I.

Speaker 5 (15:00):
Don't say someone's wrong though, because he's trying to say
that they're in a close.

Speaker 1 (15:03):
Friend like a close friends. But they've only hung out
one time, okay, So Ella's not they've only hung out
one time, like my homem Okay, So she's on business.

Speaker 6 (15:14):
It's gonna be business, so that's not like a friendship thing. Business,
that's all.

Speaker 1 (15:19):
It was the thing. I will say they weren't that type.
But that's also her ex too. It's not like she
was messing with.

Speaker 7 (15:25):
Right, Okay, all right, thank you, thank you?

Speaker 1 (15:29):
What's up?

Speaker 3 (15:29):
Name?

Speaker 1 (15:29):
How are you?

Speaker 11 (15:30):
How are you doing?

Speaker 6 (15:31):
Angela?

Speaker 1 (15:32):
I'm good? Thank you? What are your thoughts about this
Ella versus Marcy's situation? If you were cool with somebody,
they're in your close friends, but y'all only hung out
one time, but you did do business together, would you
be okay with dating her ex? Would do?

Speaker 10 (15:47):
And I said this because the breakup was wship. I
didn't think more time in between that, I will probably
say he was free game. But because you were her friends,
the business with hergy was a close friends report information.
I feel like, this is Ella's the whole time.

Speaker 1 (16:00):
Well, no, look, they knew each other for ten years.
Though I don't know if that was her plan the
whole time.

Speaker 10 (16:04):
Sur prized about some of these women, you'd be surprised.
I say this because I had a friend and.

Speaker 1 (16:12):
So it was like this was coming from something personal
for you. Somebody did this to you. So you just
completely like, listen, I don't, Tessa, I hate well I
am so Sarah your friend betrayed you that I got
to ask you what happened to you.

Speaker 9 (16:27):
I was about twenty five. I had a friend that
we were real close, but we always poked with each other.
We were always in the same setting, and so we
ended up exchanging numbers. We were friends, we were cool.
I felt like we were cool. We hung out a
couple of times, and then one day her energy switched
to I found out she was messing with my kids,
my daughter's father.

Speaker 6 (16:44):
So it was all right.

Speaker 10 (16:47):
She was being around me just for that purpose. I
don't know it, just that power.

Speaker 1 (16:51):
All right, Well I get it now. I see. Everybody's
opinion comes from their own experience. But thank you for calling.

Speaker 10 (16:57):
Welcome mean you guys having a great day on purpose?

Speaker 1 (17:00):
We shall you too on purpose? All right, Well that
was pick a side. It feels like people were more
on Marcy's side. Thanks, yeah, I think so. All right,

the good things. It's way up.

up here on the way up with the Angela yee

It feels like they had an instant connection. How did
you know that she was the one?

Speaker 13 (17:52):
Just like how difference she made me feel, like, like
how she made me want to be, like like she
made me want to do right. That's how I knew

To be something. Are you guys soulmates? Love that for sure?
And now here's what they have to say, because you
know it's a blended family already. My little girl was.

Speaker 13 (18:10):
It's crazy because when we first parted out, she was
the first one to say like like she liked to
see us together and she don't deal with really nobody
I ever dealt with. So for my daughter to say that.

Speaker 1 (18:20):
I was like, yeah, my kids love him, cute love me,

be talking to Paula Willer, who was one of the
founders of Black Health. But I also want to talk
about racial disparities in healthcare and under the radar. Okay,

(20:51):
this has been reported in every US state, according to
a new report. So when people are saying, why do
we need things like black health, or why do we
need to pay attention and why are we singling out, well,
this is exactly why every single state has evidence of
racial disparities when it comes to healthcare. All Right, These
are important stories, but sometimes they happen to be under

(21:11):
the radar. It's way up.

Speaker 4 (21:13):
I've got news this in the news that relates to you.
These stories are flying under the radar.

Speaker 1 (21:18):
It's way ye. But Angela yea am angela yee, Jasmine
brand is here.

Speaker 2 (21:21):
Are yes?

Speaker 1 (21:22):
You ready for some under the radar?

Speaker 11 (21:23):
Yes?

Speaker 2 (21:24):
I am all right.

Speaker 1 (21:25):
Well, researchers have founded health system performance is worse for
many people of color. I feel like this is something
that we've been no surprise, Yeah, discussing racial and ethnic
disparities and healthcare are evident in every single state, even
those that have great health systems. According to a new
analysis from the Commonwealth Fund, they said, even among high
performing states, we see significant disparities. Six states were found

(21:47):
to have better than average health system performance among all
racial or ethnic groups. That includes Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Hawaii,
New Hampshire, and New York. But even with those high
scoring health systems, there were racial disparities that were observed. So,
particularly when looking health at health outcomes, there's large disparities
in premature deaths from avoidable causes that are a parent

(22:07):
in all states, Black and American, Indian, and Alaska Native
people are more likely to die before age seventy five
from preventable and treatable to causes, including but not limited to,
infections like appendicitis and certain cancers than white populations. There's
also large disparities in health care access between white people
and other racial or ethnic groups across all states. So

(22:30):
this analysis is saying that achieving health equity requires policy
action and health system action that includes ensuring affordable, comprehensive,
and equitable health insurance coverage for all, strengthening primary care,
improving health care quality and delivery, investing in social services,
amongst other things. So that's why we want to make

(22:52):
sure we have these conversations always, So shout out to
Black Health. They'll be joining us today. Now, another thing
I want to tell I saw this doctor on TikTok
who was talking about something You may be skipping every
night from your hygiene routine that can make a big
difference in your overall health. Okay, Doctor Joe Whittington has
a video where he says, every single night, you should

(23:14):
be washing your toothbrush bristles with soap and water. Soap
and water, Yes, I bet nobody.

Speaker 2 (23:21):
In here does that. Do that I do not do that, Angela.

Speaker 13 (23:23):
Do you do that?

Speaker 7 (23:24):
No?

Speaker 1 (23:24):
I don't. But he said this could impact the amount
of bacteria and plaque build up in your mouth. And
they say that bacteria in your mouth, which I did know,
maybe linked to your cardiovascular health, including the development of
heart failure and other things as well.

Speaker 2 (23:38):
So wait a minute. So I'm supposed to be washing
my the bristles on my toothbrush.

Speaker 1 (23:44):
With water and soap every single night, yes, so good
or hygiene means you brush your teeth at least twice
daily for two minutes with the fluoride toothpaste, and so
make sure you do that. Okay, all right, Well that
is you're under the radar.

Speaker 8 (23:56):
You know.

Speaker 1 (23:56):
We got the way it max at the top of
the hour. And like I've been telling you guys, Paula
Willa that found a Black Health is joining us along
with the speaker for the New York State Assembly, Carl Hasty,
and doctor Warren Jones. It's way up, just like the
tout like they Angel j like they Angel Jean, and
she's spilling it all. This is yet way up. It's

(24:16):
way up by Angela ye jas brand, my own brand. Hey,
all right, Yea tea time and NBA Young Boy we
found out, is facing sixty three charges in this Utah
prescription drug fraud operation. Now there's twenty counts of identity fraud,
twenty count of obtaining a prescription under false pretenses, twenty
counts of forgery, and one count each of possession of

(24:39):
a dangerous weapon by a restricted person, engaging in a
pattern of unlawful activity, and possession of a controlled substance. Apparently,
people were calling in prescriptions and pretending to be physicians,
but they were not, and so when the actual physician
was contacted, the pharmacy was notified that the fraudulent attempt
to fill prescription had happened several times that day. There

(25:02):
were at least fifteen different pharmacies that were either involved
in this alleged prescription FORUD or were contacted about attempted
fraudulent prescriptions. So this is a whole investigation that was
going on. And multiple additional arrests were made when Young
Boy's vehicle was identified as being allegedly involved in the
prescription pickup and was pulled over and the occupants were arrested. Marijuana,

(25:25):
a weapon, and multiple bottles of prescriptions were reportedly found inside,
but NBA young boy was not inside at that time.
Sixty three charges is a lot, yeah, I mean a
lot of it is for the saying like twenty counts
of identity for us. So I guess it's one count
each for all of the prescriptions. So we shall see
what goes on here.

Speaker 8 (25:44):
Now.

Speaker 1 (25:45):
Shine recently did an interview with seven News Believes and
this all has to do with this lawsuit from low
Rod against Diddy, and he said that he has been
letting everybody know that he was the fall guy in
that shooting that happened in nineteen ninety nine that sent
him to prison for nine years. Here's what he said.

Speaker 3 (26:02):
The gentleman confessed, it certainly reopens the wounds that I've
been seeing this all along. Everyone knew all along that
I was the fall guy. Everyone knew that I was
a young kid that took the fall. You know.

Speaker 1 (26:15):
It's interesting because the woman Natania Rubin, she's always said
that it was Diddy who shot her, and so just
now all of this information is resurfacing, but it's not
new information. Yeah, yeah, I wonder why that hasn't, Like,
how do you end up going to jail when the
person well.

Speaker 2 (26:30):
Nine years is a long time to be in jail
for something you didn't do.

Speaker 1 (26:32):
It shows you a lawyer and money can get you off,
all right, all right? And Nicki Minaj has reveiled that
Travis Scott, Sexy Rerat and Chris Brown will be on
the FTCU remix. Okay, that's star studdy it is and
that should be a fun when I could see that
from the club up for real, all right. And previously
Jezi had a requested full custody of his two year

(26:55):
old daughter with Jennie MYI Monico and by the way,
soa Monico doing her medical know it was impressive. But
now it looks like he is backtracking on that and
he wants to do joint custody and he wants to
come to an agreement that is probably the best way.
You want her to be able to spend time with
both mom and both with dad. But he says that

(27:16):
he hasn't been able to see his daughter much. I
guess he's only seen her I think like eight times
or something like that this year. So he wants to
make sure that he's able to see his daughter. And
sometimes you do have to fight for that. It's unfortunate,
but at least he is in there, like, look, I
need to make this public. Let y'all know what it
is that I need, and the two of them, hopefully,
as this continues along will come to an agreement and

(27:38):
it will be a lot smoother to co apperenth. All right,
well that is your yet when we come back, we
have asked ye eight hundred two nine two fifty one
fifty any one any question.

Speaker 12 (27:47):
That you have?

Speaker 1 (27:48):
Me and dadsmen are here to help you out. That's
eight hundred two nine two fifty one fifty.

Speaker 4 (27:52):
Whether it's relationship for career advice, Angela's dropping facts?

Speaker 1 (27:56):
You should know if this is as Kee, what's up
his way? You put Angela? Yeah, Angela, Ye, Jazzmine brand
is here. Yes, you ready to get some advice? Jazz?
I'm absolutely ready. All right, We have David on the
line for ask ye what's up? David?

Speaker 6 (28:09):
What's up?

Speaker 12 (28:09):
Ye?

Speaker 6 (28:09):
How you doing?

Speaker 1 (28:10):
I'm good? What is your question today?

Speaker 3 (28:13):
So?

Speaker 6 (28:13):
I have a messy ass roommate and not even just
messy like dirty the bathroom sink is discussing this black
stuff on the tub. He's older than me. I've been
the only person to clean.

Speaker 1 (28:30):
Up the apartment that'sir.

Speaker 6 (28:32):
I've moved in, and whenever I bring it up for
him to have his share, it's always an argument or
he never do it at all. So I'm just I
don't know what to do. I love living where I
live simply because of the price. New York is expensive,
but I can't deal with this.

Speaker 1 (28:48):
I had that issue before. I had a roommate. When
I tell you messy and I'm a very like always
when thing's clean. I mean, she would do things like
buy fruit, let it rite they be fruit flies and
ye gosh, math food in the fridge, wouldn't clean anything.
You know what we ended up doing. She hired a housekeeper.
I was like, I can't live like this. It's not
fair to me. We had a real conversation and I

(29:09):
was like, if you're not going to clean, then you
need to pay somebody to come in here and clean.

Speaker 2 (29:15):
Yeah, that's a good idea, and she actually did do it.
Do you think he'd be open to the idea of
him paying for a housekeeper.

Speaker 6 (29:21):
I've presented the idea before and he was down with it,
but when it was time to like go through with it,
it never happened.

Speaker 1 (29:29):
You need to be like, I found a housekeeper. Do
you want a zeal or? How do you want to
do this? This is what it costs, because it's really
and you have to explain this really is not fair
to me. And I know you love living where you live,
but you have to let him know I can't do
this anymore. So either we have to come to a
resolution and this is what it should be, but you
have to make sure he does it. I think that's

(29:50):
a fair thing to do, a deep cleaning, and you
know that's it. Some people are just disgusting and he's
not going to change. But I would advise you to
start looking yeah, yeah, because it's hard to change somebody
into into wanting to No, he is at this point,
I pay like eight hundred Oh yeah, he's like, I'm

(30:12):
not moving. Well, then you know what, maybe you guys,
maybe you guys are gonna have to split paying for
a housekeeper and don't pay that much rent. Yeah, you know,
and maybe he just has to pay more like for
a housekeeper. But I think that might be the only solution.
If he's not going to do it, he's got to
pay for that. And listen, you got a great rent,
so you know, if it's worth you paying the extra

(30:33):
seventy five dollars and he's paying the rest a month
to get it cleaned, then that might be.

Speaker 12 (30:39):
What you have to do.

Speaker 6 (30:40):
Yeah, I appreciate it. I appreciate you both. That was
very helpful.

Speaker 1 (30:44):
All right, Thank you, and good luck to you, David,
Thank you, Thank you both. All right, take care. All right,
Well that was asking you eight hundred that's the worst.
But he got a good rent, so yeah, eight hundred dollars. Yeah,
if you got to pay a little bit and he
got to pay the rest, like you got to what
you gotta do. All right. Well, when we come back,
we have the founder of Black Health, Paula Wheeler here,

(31:06):
and she'll be with doctor Warren Jones, who has over
thirty years of experience and health care. And we also
have speaker for the New York State Assembly, Karl Hasty
joining us. We'll be talking about black health, we'll be
talking about heart health and why these things are so
important that we need to even think about policy to
make sure that healthcare is equitable. Here, it's way up, yeah, yeah,

(31:29):
more way up with what's up. It's way up at
Angela yee, I'm Angela Yee. And it is also a
Minority Health month. That's the time to talk about health
disparities and how we can improve our health and the
health of our communities. Now we'll be specific to heart
disease and other chronic conditions like cardiovascular disease, which includes

(31:51):
heart attack and strokes, the leading cause of death in
New York and stroke prevalence is higher among Black adults
in the state than all other racial groups. So I
have a great panel of people here today. I'll start
with you. Paula Wheeler is a co founder of Black Health,
and so I want to talk about what Black Health
is and how you founded that.

Speaker 2 (32:10):
Absolutely.

Speaker 8 (32:12):
So, Black Health is a nonprofit organization. Our mission is
to advance health equity in Black communities by implementing anti
racist programs, advocacy, education, and research. So it's an organization
I started with three of my very close friends from Emory.
We were learning a lot. We were getting our masters
in public health and we were just learning a lot

(32:32):
of like facts about health disparities. We have higher rates
of everything, and we're going to die sooner of a
lot of different illnesses, and so we were learning all
of these statistics. But you know, it's easy to kind
of take away from that that like, maybe there's some
potential like biological issue with black folks that's causing that.
But what we really start to have conversations about amongst

(32:54):
ourselves was that really it's racism, systemic racism that's causing
those health disparities that we see. So we provide health education,
anti racist and critical race theory, education and training to
emerging and current health professionals. We also do just like
nationwide public health programs as well as global, we also

(33:15):
operate in South Africa and we do research, advocacy and
our community health events which we really love doing.

Speaker 1 (33:22):
Next up, speak of Carl Hasty from the Bronx, Is
that right? Or I just want to make sure. And
also doctor Warren Jones, who I had the pleasure of
meeting when we were at the Congressional Black Caucus last year.
You are our family position with expertise in cardiovascular health. Yes,
And I was talking about my own issues that I've had,
and I think all of us if it's not personal,

(33:43):
but we have somebody close to us that has had
you know, heart issues and heart disease, and so I
can say that within my own family, I know, you
know for myself, I know you reached out to me
initially because I've been open about the issues that I've
had with my cholesterol being really high when I was young.
You know, I was in my early thirties and the

(34:04):
doctor told me, oh, your cholesterol is so high, it
will be an issue for you later if you don't
take care of it now. And fortunately I was able
to find that out early on and really make some
changes in my lifestyle that were permanent changes that I
had to make, and it's been fine ever since, but
definitely something that I continue to monitor. So can we

(34:25):
talk about that a little bit.

Speaker 8 (34:26):
Yeah, definitely. And for Black Health, we really like to
focus less on kind of like individual actions and telling
people you need to do this, you need to eat healthier,
you need to do that. Like those things are obviously
very very important, but for us as an organization, we
really go back to those social determinants of health. And

(34:47):
how so, social determinants of health are the non medical
factors that affect your health. So it's things like where
you live, the quality of your education, the access to
the kinds of food, nutritious foods are not and so
we know like Detroit, New York, Atlanta. You know, all
the places that our people live, like, there's a lot

(35:08):
of racial segregation, and so issues like that, like policies
things like redlining that are still operating. That like racial
segregation that causes black people to have less access to
these health promoting resources, to those social determinants of health.
So that's why you can look at almost any issue,

(35:29):
you know, health outcome, particularly cardiovascular disease, and you see
these immense differences by race.

Speaker 1 (35:35):
All right, Well, you know April is National Minority Health Month,
and we have Paula Willer, the founder of Black Health,
also doctor Warren Jones, and Speaker of the New York
State Assembly Carl Hasty here with us. We have more
with them when we come back. It's way up, way
up with Angela Yee.

Speaker 4 (35:51):
More.

Speaker 1 (35:52):
Now, what's up? It's way up at Angela Ye. I'm
Angela Yee. It's National Minority Health Month, and we have
Paula Whiller, the founder of Black Health, alongside the Speaker
for the New York State Assembly, Carl Hasty, and doctor
Warren Jones here with us. And a lot of us
have our own experiences in our own families and sometimes
with ourselves when it comes to heart health. So doctor

(36:13):
Warren Jones, let's start with you.

Speaker 11 (36:14):
Even my own daughter died early on from complications of
heart disease. She had some signs of congestive heart failure
in her forties, and I told her she needed a defibrillator,
something to shock her heart back into functioning. And I said,
talk to your doctor about it. She went, talked to
a doctor and he said, well, we can manage.

Speaker 3 (36:34):
You without it.

Speaker 11 (36:35):
Three weeks later she was dead.

Speaker 8 (36:37):
Wow.

Speaker 11 (36:38):
Clinicians often don't listen closely to women if they don't
take care of the women regularly. So we've got to
work with health professionals and folks in your community, your listeners.
They've got to say, I want my doctor to listen
to me.

Speaker 1 (36:54):
Yeah. Sometimes you go to the doctor and they don't
have a lot of time. There's patients waiting and there
to get you in and out, and it might be
something wrong and you're telling them or you don't. You
feel rushed, so you're not able to really like explain
in detail. And sometimes they'll tell you, well, you'll be fine.
If it keeps on bothering, you call me back, and
you're like, okay, because you don't want to be a

(37:14):
bother before you.

Speaker 11 (37:15):
Go, make a note to yourself of the things that
you want to make sure and the document the symptoms
you've been having so that you can effectively and efficiently
convey all of that information. But if you want to wander,
there's some time for.

Speaker 1 (37:28):
That, right The other thing people have to stop doing
is googling stuff to see, you know, how people will
have something wrong and then go on Google and then
diagnose themselves. I'm a little guilty of that sometimes, but honestly,
you know, it is important to make sure that we
have our annual checkups and like you said, document and
make sure when you go in there you know what
you're going in there for, because sometimes you'll be like, Okay,

(37:50):
this is so let me just google this. Oh I
just need some you know, X, Y and Z to
try to fix this. Even knowing what you want to
get checked out for, like when we go to the
what we should what should we be asking? Like what
type of testing should we be having done?

Speaker 11 (38:04):
This is one of the times you can go to
the internet. There are recommendations from something called the United
States or Preventive Services Task Force, and they recommend and
at your age group, the kinds of things that you
need to be screened for.

Speaker 1 (38:19):
Okay, wow, okay.

Speaker 11 (38:20):
If you look up the USPSTF the United States Prevented
Services Task Force for your age, it'll tell you age
and gender, It'll tell you and I would encourage you
to make a list of them and ask that of
your doc when.

Speaker 3 (38:35):
You go in.

Speaker 1 (38:35):
Well, how can people reach all of you? Because we
do want to learn more about Black health. And again,
if you guys want to get your get more information,
you can go to my LDL doc. Oh what is
my LDL dot com? And that's where you can get
more information on how to get a free LDL test
as well. But Paula, for Black Health, how can people
reach you?

Speaker 3 (38:53):
Yeah?

Speaker 8 (38:53):
Yeah, please, we want everyone to stay connected with Black Health.
We have a lot of exciting programs. I mean, please
find us on social media. We're on all social media
platforms at Black Health. That's b L k H L THH.
All right, so much, Angela, no, thank you.

Speaker 1 (39:07):
And again that's what is my LDL dot com. That's
how you can get that free LDL test. But Paula,
thank you so much for putting us all together, you know,
in the same room. I really do appreciate all the
work that you've been doing out of the goodness and
cons really.

Speaker 2 (39:20):
