episode 234: The Emperor Has No Clothes (History of US Police, Protests, Ivanka & PRIDE, #BlackOutTuesday, Coping through Systemic Racism while Black, White Ally's, Bush, Photo Op)


Cymatic Bruce is back- and thank the goddess because it has been a week! We dive into the four deaths that led up to the mass protests around the world responding to the killing of unarmed Black people and anti-blackness in America. These events didn't happen in a vacuum. We talk about #BlackOutTuesday and it’s effects, once everyone finally figured out how it worked. Will all this public out cry for justice, and equity for Black folks, will this actually be the moment, catalyst for change, or just the news cycle and trend of the moment? We talk about the other pandemic this country has been facing for centuries (racism), and what we've dubbed the background radiation of oppression/racism that Black people have always felt and learned to live with. James is proud to be a millennial and he'll tell you why. And also why he's wishing, First Karen, Ivanka Trump a very UnHappy Pride. Unfortunately but necessarily, we have to talk about that Guy in the white houses photo op, how he’s proven to be even more dangerous, and the holes and failures he’s shown that we must patch in our government. Bruce takes the main Korner as he walks us through the History/Origins of Police in America, its eye opening and like most American things it’s rooted: in racism.
