#138 | Is Trump Tower The New Summer Jam Screen?

What do Steve Harvey, Kanye West and Jim Brown all have in common? They all went to Trump Tower to kiss the ring of (y’all’s) new President Donald Trump, and got dragged for it by the Black community. The Say Something Nice Crew discuss Harvey’s visit and the inevitable backlash, and we wonder if this is the updated version of Jay-Z embarrassing his rivals at HOT 97’s infamous concerts from the ’90s. In addition to these hijinks, we review the #BlackGirlMagic filled “Hidden Figures”, the post-Trump “black-ish” episode, Jennifer Holliday flip flopping on performing at the inauguration and much more.

Join Brandon, John, Kareem, Ken, and Jamison as we discuss, dissect, and try to make sense of the past, present, and future in film, television, music, animation, race relations in media - and on occasion comics and tech - while trying to remain sane. If you’re tired of hearing the same (*ahem*) monochromatic take on modern media, we’re the podcast for you!
