Election day has passed, but we’re still just beginning the work to fix our democracy and build a more equitable America. Eboni and Dustin discuss the moment including the coveted Black male swing vote, and WTF was up with Lil Wayne, Ice Cube, 50 Cent and Kodak Black co-sign of Trump?  Legal headlines on The Docket this week include Mel B and Eddie Murphy child support case, the latest on Dr. Dre and Nicole Young’s divorce case, and the shocking lawsuit by a Louisville police officer who killed Breonna Taylor.   Special guest US Rep. Cedric Richmond of Louisiana's 2nd Congressional District joins the conversation to clarify 2018 Jobs and Justice Bill legislation introduced from the Congressional Black Caucus versus recent proposals from the Trump Administration’s Platinum Plan and Ice Cube’s Contract with Black America. Congressman Richmond also drops knowledge about lesser known positive programs of the infamous 1994 Crime Bill, including authorization for “pattern or practice” investigations for police misconduct and grants for preventing violence against women. And Eboni shares a personal story about how the judicial system needs more “pretrial diversion programs” for giving young people a second chance rather than a criminal record. Follow Eboni K.

I’m Eboni K. Williams, an attorney, TV news anchor, and former public defense attorney. I was raised by a single mother. We were poor, we struggled but we strived and she taught me, inspired me and instilled in me a sense of justice through perseverance, through knowledge! I worked and was accepted to college at 16, then I went to law school. Now I want to teach, to inspire.   I believe we are a nation of laws, but the system is rigged and we must work to restore the promise of justice for all. This show isn’t about the law as much as it’s about how the law impacts our lives, and what we need to know to protect and empower ourselves.   And one more thing, I’ve got the most amazing, smart, sexy co-host Dustin Ross. Y’all know him from The Friend Zone. On this show we’re going to get real, get informed, get going and of course have a little fun along the way. Come join us and let’s hold court! “It makes no sense, it doesn’t fit, you must acquit” - Johnny Cochran clip courtesy CNN. “You go down there looking for justice, that’s what you find, ‘just us.’” - Richard Pryor clip courtesy Rhino Entertainment / Warner Music.
