    Episode A - Best of Worst, Episode of Mix, Down

    in Current Events

    Tonight, we revisit some of the recent audio mixes from issue episodes. The themes are still currennt events, although 2 of the topics are overshadowed or forgotten in the mainstream because the other issue serves their agenda more to oversaturate the narrative with their divisive point of view. 

    These topics are all precursors to what some are calling the "Negro Spring". I don't know if thst title holds with it some historical racism or if it shows the reality of modern prejudices and delusions of a post racial Murica. What it does show, is that it's again time to fight for the underdog, and it is all of us.
