I am not your Negro (Netflix)

In 1979, James Baldwin wrote a letter to his literary agent describing his next project, "Remember This House." The book was to be a revolutionary, personal account of the lives and assassinations of three of his close friends: Medgar Evers, Malcolm X and Martin Luther King, Jr. At the time of Baldwin's death in 1987, he left behind only 30 completed pages of this manuscript. Filmmaker Raoul Peck envisions the book James Baldwin never finished

This episode we wanted to talk about the feel of driving the Y as compared to the Model 3.  Sitting low for so long  in the Model 3 and with the speed and maneuverability we were use to.  This was a different experience we wanted to discuss.  Also a short trip to NC also gave us an opportunity to feel the difference on the high way as well.

The team starts back up with trying to define what states are more relevant than others and then we talk about the elephants in the room the civil unrest and the military occupying cities.  We also give props to "On Tyranny" by Timothy Snyder and how we should follow this play book to look out for dictatorships.

We end with our personal contribution to Black Lives Matter and how anyone and everyone should do something

In this episode, Alicia and I share our experience when we picked our car and inspected it for defects and quality.  The internet is a buzz about the bad quality of the Model Y as people are taking deliver so it was time to take note and share our experience.  We also give our insight with our experience with our Model 3 from 2 years ago

With all of the nonsense going on, we talk about the humor and information that is out and the people who are looking at any reason to rebel using free rights and civil liberties as the excuse. But in the end there is no humor in racism and debating anyone who doesn’t understand there is privilege for some more than others. Also what's your thought about Black people with guns who just wants to protect them selves?

Defending Jacob

Apple TV + has a few shows on their channel that seems pretty interesting that we took the time to check out when it came up.  This month it was Captain America (Chris Evans) playing a lawyer who's son is a suspect for killing another child.  The drama in which we go through pulls you back and forward of did he do it or didn't he.  8 episodes and an open ended conclusion of did his son really do it.  This also was based on a book that was written in 2012 by a lawyer and writer.

This week we have different conversation about leadership in the black community compared to the 60’s and now. Has activism changed based on the people or is it because of social media and the class divide among African Americans?
