Do we work to lift people up in the black community and show support or do we find that a lot of people who are trying to become successful are often fighting to not be dragged down by others who may not be as successful? Do you feel that we praise the efforts of the hardworking individual in the black community but look down on their children who reap the benefits? We have heard the comments made by Jaylen Rose stating that as a teen he felt that Duke University only recruited "Uncle Toms" but we are going to delve a little deeper into the topic and see if we can uncover the deeper issues regarding success and the black community. And of course, as always, there is new music and new hot topics! Special shout out to Jay Dash for his show topic idea!
