Use Your Words

I have always thought California was a little odd regarding some of the crazy things coming out of that state - but I have to admit they have done a few things right throughout the years. If you remember a little while ago I did a video called "Stop Being My White Knight" saying let me prove myself based on the merit of my work - and don't give me special favor just because my skin has a little more melanin in it then other people.

A recent trend in the unrest in America is groups of people tearing down statues (illegally) that they feel are problematic.  We have gone beyond cancelling people to wanting to cancel statues of historical figures.  Should this be allowed?  What does this trend say about America?  How is this related to last weeks episode?

Use Your Words

Vulnerability in Americans seems to be almost nonexistent - partially as a result of our culture that likes to be individualistic that preaches that showing any vulnerability is a weakness instead of a strength.  It has caused a rampant increase in mental health issues as well as a multitude of other issues.  With that as the backdrop, the guys wanted to talk about vulnerability this week - so join us for this important discussion.
