1) Former Chief Deputy of the U.S. Marshalls and a former DEA Agent discussed how the War on Drugs is targeting African Americans, the relationship between law enforcement and prosecutors, police body cameras and recording police misconduct.  He called the War on Drugs one of the most racists policies since Slavery.  2) We shared an interview that Vanity aka Denise Matthews did back in 1986 with Arsenio.  3) February is African American History Month but most people know very little about the monthly Cultural and Historical Celebration.  We shared an article that Michael Imhtoep wrote “Black History Month Was Never Designed to Be The Only Month We Study Our History” and also a presentation that Michael Imhotep did on Feb. 7th, 2016 dealing with the same subject.
