Speaker 1 (04:12):
I don't care about your color. I really really don't.
I don't even have time for that in my day.

Speaker 3 (04:16):
Matter of fact, sometimes when you get to discuss and
race it, I just get tired of it. Sometimes I
just wish, you know, some days I just want to
wake up, just do me. You know, I got what
the skin tone is, I got that. But I just
want to wake up some days and just going by
my business and do me. I don't want to have
to deal with somebody. I get tired of talking about
the issues. It ain't gonna make them go away, But

(04:38):
sometimes I get tired. So to day, I'm talking to brothers,
all the brothers of the male species. I'm talking about
men today. Man, if you ain't doing it all, if
you're feel an empty man, start today completing your process
and your journey. And you know what I'm saying by that,
if there's a part of you just missing as a man,

(05:00):
and now, man, i'm talking to you. So you know,
some ladies listening, but you know what I'm talking about.
It's some part of you that's missing as a man.
If you ain't really been in touch with your kids
like you're supposed to now.

Speaker 1 (05:13):
For whatever the reason is.

Speaker 3 (05:15):
And please know, I do understand how sometimes women can
use children as pawns. It happens all the time. I've
been through it. I've been through it, man, I know
what it feels like, man, to wanna do something. But
because you ain't got this or you ain't doing this,
then I ain't gonna let you have this. You gotta

(05:36):
fight through, fellas, you got to fight through. You got
to fulfill your end of the deal. And I got
how difficult they making it. I got how man, it's
gonna come with some drama, but you gotta fight through it.
Because man, we need fathers to be fathers. That's really
what we need. If you're a man out there and

(05:57):
you are a father of a child, we need you
do your job. I'm talking about our community, our situation,
us as a people, all of us. We need you
to be a father period. Hey man, I ain't coming
down on you. I'm just your boy. I'm your man.

(06:19):
And I've been in the same predicament, in the same
hole myself, where I couldn't get to them, where they
were used as pawns, where they were told things about
me that wasn't even true. I've been through it. You
can't see them, you don't come up. Okay, okay, I
got all that. You ain't sent this. You ain't okay,
Hey got all that. If you can call them sometimes,

(06:43):
tell them you thinking about them, tell them you love them.
If you can get a letter to them, if you
can get a message to your children through one of
your relatives, start the process today.

Speaker 1 (06:56):
Be a father. It's your job now, because cause.

Speaker 3 (07:00):
You ignoring him, or you acting like they ain't over there,
or you thee backed him out of your mind because
the situation got too difficult.

Speaker 1 (07:07):
I got that. I got that, But you got to
step up and be fathers. You got to write a letter.

Speaker 3 (07:14):
You gotta send the money if she talking about If
you don't send all the money, you ain't gonna see him.
Send what you got if she if taking it over
there is too much drama, send it through a relative,
Give it to a mama, give it to a sister,
ask her to take it over there and do something
for the baby. Because okay, okay, you can't deal with
the drama. I got that, and I know it's much
to pay when you have to deal with that because

(07:36):
I clearly I know hell have no fury like a
woman's going Please know. I know that, please know. And
that's a real statement. That ain't no saying. Steve got
that's that's the truth. But do what you gotta do.
Sometimes you have to apologize. Sometimes an apology goes a
long way to your children. Just say, look, because I've

(07:59):
made this upon before. Hey man, look I'm sorry. I
wasn't there for you. I was out grinding and hustling
and I wasn't paying attention to you, and I should
have been. And I apologize. And I imagine, man, there's
days where you was telling people I was your father
up at the school and they wasn't believing you. I
apologize for sending you through that. But now, ma'am, I

(08:22):
tell you what. I made some mistakes, and I got
it together. I want me and you to move forward
as father and son. I want me and you to
move forward as father and daughter. I want to be
in your life now. I ain't got a lot, but
guess what, I know a lot because if you a
man and you a father, please know, you know something
that child don't know. You have information, you have experience.

(08:44):
That's all they need sometimes to have somebody to talk to.
That daughter yours just needs to know from her daddy,
how should a man treat me?

Speaker 2 (08:53):
Dad?

Speaker 3 (08:54):
What should I look for in a man? See, they'll
take that information from you because they know it's coming
from the right place. And then you know that your
son needs you because you know how difficult it is
if you're trying to be a man without your daddy.
You already know how funky that is, right there. So
come on, man and meet your mistakes and move forward.

on them, send a text, drop a message, send a
note up to the school.

I could shut the minering camp down.

to think I'm coming down on you. But I've been

Who Killed JFK?

Who Killed JFK? For 60 years, we are still asking that question. In commemoration of the 60th anniversary of President John F. Kennedy's tragic assassination, legendary filmmaker Rob Reiner teams up with award-winning journalist Soledad O’Brien to tell the history of America’s greatest murder mystery. They interview CIA officials, medical experts, Pulitzer-prize winning journalists, eyewitnesses and a former Secret Service agent who, in 2023, came forward with groundbreaking new evidence. They dig deep into the layers of the 60-year-old question ‘Who Killed JFK?’, how that question has shaped America, and why it matters that we’re still asking it today.
