Good morning Angela ye mining damn Charlemagne.
The Got Peace to the planet is Thursday. Yes, it's Thursday, the weekend is almost here. Damn it, I if ever wanted to be here. Let's let's be honest, OK? We're still in, I guess, the middle of this week. I'm in the middle of nowhere yet. And it's this global pandemic and we might still be in the beginning, who knows? But we can say if you want it to be here, OK, it can be the day there today.
You want it to start today? Yes. It started the date and started the day in Toronto.
In Toronto. Hey, well, listen, last night on HBO, I was watching that Yusef Hawkins storm over a Brooklyn story.
Gentlemen, you know, Yusef Hawkins is from the Central Park five. No, it was a big story in Brooklyn and in New York. But back in day, I think it was in like nineteen eighty nine.
He was a 16 year old young teenage black boy that went to go buy a car and he went nineteen eighty nine. He went to Bensonhurst, which is a predominantly like Italian neighborhood in Brooklyn, to go buy a car. And he ended up getting killed by a group of white kids. Mm hmm. Oh, that's actually how we got here. Mayor David Dinkins, that's when he was running against Kotche and he became mayor. He's the black mayor of New York.
But it was a big story just because I grew up in Flatbush in a black neighborhood, and I went to school in Bay Ridge, which is right, you know, right near Bensonhurst. So it was just a crazy time for me. It was like a big racial clash. It was.
Yeah. He was beaten by, they say they believe, 10 to 30 white youths.
They believe that they had batts, somebody had a handgun and shot him twice in the chest. It was nasty. It was it was a huge race war during that time.
I remember between Bensonhurst riots, Howard Beach and parts of Staten Island. It was nasty. It was nasty there in that time.
And apology's they used the use of Salome's the Central Park five and use of spot. They're both men. So that documentary just came out on HBO last night. But it's an interesting watch. Yeah. Al Sharpton, he was very involved in that. He had the first protest. Farrakhan spoke at the funeral.
Why didn't you promote that? I didn't see that. I didn't see that. You know, it is interesting that they did. And I just remember when I heard they were doing a documentary because I got some emails like about, oh, a lot of people were having, like online screenings of it before it came out. And so I saw a lot of people talking about it, but I didn't see enough emotion about it. So I just wanted to bring that up because that was on last night.
Yeah, right before the march, I believe Al Sharpton was stabbed in Bensonhurst. Yeah, he got stabbed at the Bensonhurst.
I remember out now getting stabbed at that I recall. Yeah, that was, that was, that was it was all part of that. Yeah. It was right before they were having they were about to start a march and someone just came up and stabbed him. Yeah.
I got to watch that and yeah I wish I would've promoted it better because I to love to see that too. But I can't believe you still can.
Yeah no I know but I would love definitely to check that out since it came out.
What's the name of it. Yusef Hawkins. Storm over Brooklyn. Storm over Brooklyn. OK, all right.
Well let's get the show crackin. Front page news. What are we talking about? Iowa.
Let's talk about Kamala Harris and Joe Biden and the first time the two of them have been together in Delaware and he's announced her as his running mate.
So let's hear what she had to say. All right. All right. We'll get into that next.
Keep it like this. The Breakfast Club. Good morning.
Hey. Morning, everybody. Is D.J. Envy. Angela Ye shall be the guy we are.
The Breakfast Club was a front page news when we started. Easy.
Well, let's start with Joe Biden and Kamala Harris together in Delaware, appearing together for the first time on the same ticket. We're very excited for that. Now, Joe Biden says we have to protect Kamala Harris.
Donald Trump has already started his attacks, calling commom a, quote, nasty whining about how she is, quote, mean to his appointees. It's no surprise because whining is what Donald Trump does best, better than any president in American history. Is anyone surprised Donald Trump has a problem with a strong women or strong women across the board? Kamala Harris has had your back and now we have to have her back. She's going to stand with me in this campaign and all of us are going to stand up for her.
I mean, he's right. And you know what's crazy is how many people fall for the B.S. like Kamala Harris was a D.A. and AG in San Francisco. We know that a prosecutor. We know this. But I really want you all to go do your own research on Senator Harris research. It's not something you saw on YouTube are mean. Her record is right there, you know, in your face, if you really want to go search for it, because a lot of you are falling for the R r d smear campaign that's coming from Russia to the Trump administration.
Who knows what's going on and shout the Kamala Harris and the.
Of me just posting a picture of her in the way that I'm attacked for supporting Kamala Harris. I can't even imagine what she's going to do with the most of the things that people are saying are lies.
You know, it's real and a lot of stuff is really untrue. I know.
And at least Pernessa name, right, when you attack her. I mean, I was watching. I said Tucker Carlson, he kept calling her Kamala and they were like doing her name's Kamala. He's like, so who cares purpose.
Yeah, clearly he does.
But it makes you look like you're not doing your job if you can't even pronounce that person's name. Right. All right.
Now, Kamala Harris also talks about what plans are in the goals for the administration are will create millions of jobs and fight climate change through a clean energy revolution, bring back critical supply chains so the future is made in America, build on the Affordable Care Act so everyone has a piece of mind that comes with health insurance and finally offer caregivers the dignity, the respect and the pay they deserve will protect a woman's right to make her own decisions about her own body, to root out systemic racism in our justice system and pass a new Voting Rights Act, a John Lewis Voting Rights Act that will ensure every voice is heard and every voice is counted.
Interesting. Very interesting. Look, you just got to keep the collective pressure going. I think, you know, all records should be questioned. You know, whatever demands you know, we have, we have to continue to push on those. But I do think this is a start in the right direction. I truly do believe it.
But I don't hear is OK.
I was going to say here is her call for action, because I know we have a lot more to talk about this morning, but here's Kamala Harris. Tell me what you need to do.
We need more than a victory on November 3rd. We need a mandate that proves that the past few years do not represent who we are or who we aspire to be. Joe likes to say that character is on the ballot and it's true. When he saw what happened in Charlottesville three years ago today, he knew we were in a battle for the soul of our nation. And together with your help, that's a battle we will win earlier this year. I said I do whatever Joe asked me to do.
And so now I'm asking you to do the same. So visit Joe Biden dot com to get involved in this campaign and vote.
They raised twenty six million dollars in twenty four hours. Since the twenty four hours that Senator Campbell has been introduced as vice president, they raised twenty six million dollars in a day. Those are the kind of numbers they were doing in the minority. Did it in 24 hours. He's right.
These past few years should not define who we are. We can move forward. We were just in a very bad, abusive relationship. Let's put it behind us now.
Can I say one thing real quick to the San Francisco district attorney in California, A.G. positions, those are executive roles. So that means DEA or AG, Kamala Harris would not have been personally involved in the day to day assignment of every staff member in case she was not personally involved in every court proceeding or charging decision.
So please keep that in mind when you all are saying, you know, certain things online. All right.
Well, that is front page news. Get it off your chest. Eight hundred five eight five four two five one. If you need to hit us up right now is the Breakfast Club. Good morning.
The Breakfast Club. This is your time to get it off your chest. The man. I hear from you on the Breakfast Club that you've got something on your mind. Hello, who's this? This is coming from member Kevin Thornber would rather get it off your chest. Yes. Well, first, I want to say thank you to you guys and the platform that you provide for everyone. I thank you, brother. And I want to thank the listeners for the support of my son and his video Make It, which is out on YouTube the.
To check it out. Oh, yes. And your listeners from our Europe supported my son. So I really appreciate you guys and lesbians, but. Right. I just want to talk about the trouble of Harris. You know, he's a great flick, but social media dogged her of say she's not black enough and say that the incarceration of black people and I think she was just doing her job and just is just social media, just killing black people, which I don't think I don't understand.
And nor do I get it either.
It seems like it's especially black folks, but it's not especially black folks. A lot of that is is manufactured, you know, I mean, it's box, you know, it is a lot of people, black people. I'm not to say it's a lot, but it is a large amount of black people that don't like her. But a lot of that is in a lot of that is coming from the Trump administration. But that's what's expected of them.
OK, I get more invites, Bernie. Yes.
And I know you ride your bike, be back for miles. If you're not busy Sunday, why don't you come to my place and apply for justice at nine a.m.? It's a great event, Yasseen.
I seem to make a mandatory of my son doing it. I might go do my ride at 5:00 in the morning and join ya.
I'm I was thinking about that today, but, you know, I usually do my rounds 5:00 in the morning, so by the time I get back, my kids is up so I can be here for breakfast. That's why I go so early. But we'll see. Maybe maybe I will try to make it up to get it off your chest. Eight hundred five eight five one two five one. If you need to finish this up now is the Breakfast Club.
Good morning. The Breakfast Club. Hey, I'm Carlos Watson. I'm hosting a primetime talk show, guess what? I'm not a white guy named Jimmy. He was a global pandemic, historic recession, racial justice. Protest 20 is not a joke. We need something more than late night comedians help make sense of this craziness. Welcome to the Carlos Watson Show. Look, it's going to be brand new deep conversations with everyone from Malcolm Gladwell to Paris Hilton and back again.
Join me, Carlos Watson on the Aussie YouTube channel or listen to the podcast version on the I Heart radio Apple podcast or wherever else you listen.
Wake up, wake up, wake up. This is your time to get it off your chest, whether you're mad or blessed. We want to hear from you on the Breakfast Club. Hello. Who's this?
Hey, this is the way my call in Baltimore. It was something of something.
Hey, how you doing, man? I'm a huge fan of the show, man. I've been listening to you for years. I just really want to thank men for just doing what you are doing and being who you are. And I really, really appreciate it. Help me through some tough times, man. So I definitely appreciate how much I do that.
Thank you. Do a good Naruto. I'm good man. I'm more. Today is my birthday man. So happy birthday. Happy birthday brother. Leo. Yes I, I'm a little bit off my my my my daughter's birthday is today.
My second daughter. My middle child.
OK, well happy birthday to you little child. Thank you King. No problem man. But yeah I work overnight and honestly I listen to you guys while I'm putting away the boxes or whatnot, working giant overnight. So I'll be grinding. But you'll be helping me get through man. And thank you. And I really want to give a shout out to my cousin Chris man, my brother Clinton and my parents man. And I love the more men and I love y'all.
And I thank you all for letting me on. Thank you. All right, man. Hello. Who's this?
It is. Who's calling out? Ohio. What's up? Get it off your chest. Hey, I just wanted to talk about the election. I just think it's work. We pretty much voted. We got to vote for anybody just to get out of this. I mean, this thing like this is our only option after we seem like off the record. So you know what it is? It's just like we got to vote for them to get out.
All right. Let me show you're registered. What? Harris's record. I'm just talking about where all of the black magic overpowers what I'm thinking. What's the number of convictions? How many black men did you put behind bars? Like, what's the number? Cause I keep hearing people say that, but I haven't seen any numbers.
What's the number one? I haven't done the research.
I don't know the problem.
And that is the only one that is the problem with some numbers, though, she you know, she is district attorney. You know, she feels like force. But I'm just saying that since Trump in office, black people have come together to, like, stand up against racism. I think if we just wait for somebody to get in office to put us back to sleep or we wait for somebody to say right now we need to stand together like we've been doing and keep fighting, you know, what we're doing first instead of waiting for somebody to come in to try to save us, we're pacifies.
That's all I'm saying.
I agree with that, Senator, as it's about the presidency, just the V.P. Now, I'm not voting for I know a little bit about who I'm not voting for Biden.
I'm voting for Senator Harris. I'm not voting.
So are you, sir. Are you voting are you registered to vote register?
But, man, it's so hard. It's tricky. Like, man, this is actually, man, I just don't feel like I want to give my vote to somebody that I think we've been standing together with. Nobody is coming to save you. We got to say. I mean, do me a favor. He's coming in to save us.
I agree with you 100 percent. But I do think that we can use our collective power and we can use our collective black leverage to, you know, elect people that we want to elect and then we can hold them accountable once they get in those positions. I agree with you. I think black people have come together in a real way and we need to keep this collective pressure going way beyond. Want somebody in the White House.
Well, thank you. So get it off your chest. 855 505 where we got Rumsen away. Yes. And somebody is coming out accusing Michael B. Jordan of being flirtatious. We'll tell you what he had to say.
And it was a guy. Wait, no, it's a he. I think you told the story. I mean, I think you just gave away the whole goddamn story. That was that's not how you supposed to give away the story. And I know you were so intrigued. I was just I just wanted to tease you.
I already knew. I mean, radio like you mind.
Well, you are great, Dad, because I'm good at my job. You're great lesbian because I believed you.
I really did. Like I believed you. All right. Well, up next, the Breakfast Club. Come on.
The Breakfast Club. It's. The this is the room where reporter Angela Yio on the Breakfast Club. Now Michael B. Jordan's former house assistant, has said some things about him. He feels like Michael B. Jordan was very flirtatious. And even with him, he was on juicy scoop with Heather McDonald. And here's what he had to say about the time that he helped him move.
I was the house assistant at that time, so I was helping him move and he'd walk around in a boxers and no shirt. And he was so far he would flirt with a wall. And I being like so young. I was in my 20s.
I thought we had a moment, but I could be wrong. I think you did.
We were I was in his closet and he was just like he was like, are we going to kiss? And I was like, Michael? And he's like, I just like to joke around with you. And I was like, and I and I was such a professional person.
So I was like, Michael, I have a job to do. And I went downstairs and started receiving packages.
I should have received his package. OK, yeah. He came on to me and said, I'm not here to out anyone. That's not my job.
But he there was a vibe between us that goes beyond sexuality that was all in your head for Michael Jordan loves white women, not white men. All right. Stop, stop you.
He said nothing. But I just felt like there was a vibe with you.
I didn't get tired of people saying anything and it becoming news.
Also, Michael B. Jordan probably was joking around. Maybe he is a, you know, cool, flirtatious person like that.
But does it mean anything by people make up anything, though, like, you know, we all the time that, you know, Charlamagne lived in a friend of mine's building and I will go see my friend. His name was Little Sean. They kind of look like, you know, kind of look like Charlamagne, a little bit short, dark skinned, bullheaded and went Charlamagne went in the building.
Lady was like, you be careful. You know, he likes to see a brother. Just looks just like you. Would I pass by the room that squeaking say that.
But that's different for that public.
Even aside from y'all even in this story, he said they were in a closet and they were really close and he was like, are we going to kiss? But he was kidding.
Like, you listen to the words take were in a car. We were cannibalizing because he wasn't moving and he was helping him move.
He know what he's saying? People got to be hesitant about speaking on you, especially if it may or may not be true. And by the way, we've all seen Michael Jordan with his shirt off because he's always got his shirt off in movies and everything. So you're not special. I would expect Michael Jordan walking around shirtless in his house, this group.
Well, I don't think it was really that crazy. He said nothing happened and maybe he just made it all up in his head.
Well, let's talk about the double standard. You don't think it's that crazy because you're not a man. But I'm sure men that aren't homosexual don't want to be just allegedly outed as homosexual in interviews, is what I'm saying.
And what if he really is? And what if you really think I'm ready to come out? But he made a story that they flirted with back in twenty sixteen.
He was rumored to be gay and he said that he just lets it roll off his back.
Well, what I'm saying, what if he really doesn't want to be outed? All I'm saying is, would you mind your business like you don't have to everything will have to be on podcast. And by the way, who is this guy?
He's a former publicist and he was his house manager. OK, all right.
Now, Wendy Williams has sold her house in New Jersey for one point for a million dollars. So congratulations to her, according to sources. Yes. Yes. She felt like she's just got a lot to work with her life as she had it on the market for two million.
I guess she just wanted to get out. She was like, look, I'm tired of this. This is the last thing that connects me with my ex.
Let me get this over with. Yeah.
Fifty seven hundred square feet, five bedroom mansion, one point four seven five million dollars.
That is a steal. I forgot that came up. Wow. All right.
And since we're talking about real estate in New Jersey, let's talk about Snoop Dogg now. He actually is planning to do some investing. And he called him he called the mayor. Marty Small senior. Don't we have a day in Atlantic City, the Breakfast Club? Yes, we do.
Like do like this is a lot, too. But I'll let you finish and then I'll clear it up. You said it's a lie. Yes.
All right. Well, Snoop Dogg calls up Marty Small on FaceTime. And here's what happened.
I'm coming to this thing. I'm coming to the city. We're looking to try to invest some real estate and do some big things out there. What you and just want to get acquainted with you that, you know, hear from me face to face. What would you like to see him do?
Well, with the city of Atlantic City, Lex obviously is family fun entertainment. You know, we look forward to Snoop Dogg and any other person that wants to do business in L.A. that I'm in a city of Englewood. Right. And we have a black mayor out here as well. And I would like for you to meet him so we could start a mayor's coalition where you brothers got to know each other and start working with each other here.
Cesar, trying to do the job, the city, New York City, you know what he meant to say, to do some other business, some real business. We really estate business. We live in New Jersey. We flip in everywhere. Snoop Dogg's in the flipping game that's flipping.
And Jay and his partner, I thought he lost weight. It's not like he had a brother to me. No, he did lose a lot of weight. Why is this a lie?
Because Snoop never said he wanted to invest in real estate. Snoop's whole thing was marijuana. He wants to invest in some type of marijuana in New Jersey, whether it's a dispensary or something like that.
And people just ran with the story says Duke wants to buy real estate. Never said that. He just said he was. We're looking to try to invest in some real estate and do some big things out there with you. So you're not talking real estate. He was talking dispensary's.
I probably that's probably why people think that, because he said it and somebody said something.
Somebody definitely said something about flipping houses, flipping New Jersey. Maybe that will see them.
But yes, he definitely said it verbatim. We're looking to try to invest in some real estate now.
Stocks looking to do a lot of things in New Jersey. And I don't think real estate is wonderful but are going to help that about this new cash out to his son as well.
All right. Well, I'm me, Lee, and that is your rumor report in the Angela Ye Shall.
I mean, the guy we are, the Breakfast Club, is getting some front page news where we start, you candy corn. You know, Thanksgiving is coming up soon. And now they have a new turkey dinner, candy corn. So according to their packaging there, six different Thanksgiving flavors of candy corn, these green beans, roasted turkey, cranberry sauce, ginger glazed carrots, sweet potato pie and stuffing.
Hui's candy corn and candy corn cycle's so nasty, I just can't eat a lot of it. With all the other candies in the world, you would choose candy corn with a real corn, you would choose candy corn.
I'd rather eat me a real corn on the cob than a piece of goddamn candy corn. Candy corn is yuck. Psychopaths.
All right. Well, anybody that wants to try the green beans, candy corn, it's available. They have green beans. Well, first of all, that's an oxymoron. How can you be green beans and candy corn? And that's two different vegetables.
It's a green bean flavored candy corn. There's no, sir.
I mean, just because somebody came to you and said, hey, here's some corn that tastes like green beans, wouldn't you just say, give me the goddamn green beans?
That actually sounds delicious. Hybrid. All right. Now, let's talk about Attorney General Daniel Kahneman. He has met with the family of Brianna Taylor.
And, you know, I guess hopefully there will be at some point some justice served for Brianna Taylor.
So I'm not sure what's happening.
The attorney general asked for the meeting allegedly and met with the family yesterday when a close bond fund tell Freedom Without Freedom went down there and they posted it up, living there for the next 30 days and then the making noise every day. So Daniel Kahneman had to do something.
So, yeah. And so it's still ongoing. His office will determine whether the officers involved will face charges in her death. So they said the office was waiting on ballistic evidence from the FBI crime lab. And there's still no timeline. But keep that pressure on.
I really want everybody to continue to think about that or just think about how we can't even get to people who kill us. Fire. We're just trying to get fired. Think about that. Of course, we want him arrested, but are they still on the Force One?
I know one guy only. Yeah, only one person got fired. Yeah, that's fine. All right. Now, let's talk about Kamala Harris and Joe Biden. They appeared together on the same ticket for the first time in Delaware. And Kamala Harris talks about the goals of their new administration.
Prayers will create millions of jobs and fight climate change through a clean energy revolution. Bring back critical supply chains so the future is made in America. Build on the Affordable Care Act so everyone has a piece of mind that comes with health insurance and finally offer caregivers the dignity, the respect and the pay they deserve will protect a woman's right to make her own decisions about her own body, to root out systemic racism in our justice system and pass a new Voting Rights Act, a John Lewis Voting Rights Act that will ensure every voice is heard and every voice is counted.

I've been seeing all types of things on social media. So let's have this discussion this morning.
All right. She's my type of my type of my type of situation because I love things that are polarizing, you know? I mean, I love things that people really love and I love things that people really hate, because to me, the truth always lies within the middle of that. You know, my father always says, you never as good as they say you are. You never as bad as you say you are. You just always somewhere in the middle.
So as long as a person makes you feel something, I'm intrigued. She makes you feel something. Let's open up these phone lines.
Eight hundred five eight five one two five one. Let's have this conversation this morning is the Breakfast Club.
Good morning. To pull out your phone call. And right now you call me. And joining into the Breakfast Club to break it down, eight hundred five eight five one oh five one, The Breakfast Club.

And it's topic time because the phone call 800 five eight five one four five one to join into the discussion with the Breakfast Club. Talk about it. Morning, everybody.
Is T.J. and we actually following the guy. We are the Breakfast Club.
Good morning. Good morning. Good morning.
Now we open up the phone lines to talk about Kamala Harris, 805, a five one two five one. She's a former attorney general in California, former San Francisco district attorney. She was born in Oakland, California. She was elected to the Senate in 2016 and was a real hue.
Let's be clear on that.
I didn't say that she did go to she did attend Howard University. Not the real issue, but it doesn't matter because we rido her regardless. And we went to Hampton, by the way, for those who are just joining us, the real Hugh Hampton University in Hampton, Virginia, Schatz's 572 for what?
Abacavir. OK, so we are asking Kamala Harris, what are your thoughts?
What do you mean what? You know how we feel. We've been interviewing Kamala Harris since 2000. 18, I think was her first appearance on The Breakfast Club.
You know, I've done several campaign events with Senator Kamala Harris when she was running for president.
So, I mean, I'm excited. I feel like I did in 2008 when President Obama ran. But I'm more politically sophisticated now. So I'm not just voting for someone because of identity politics. I'm voting for her because of programs I've seen are passed and legislation I believe she will pass in the future, I hope passed in the future. Once she gets in the White House. I think that we got someone in there who actually cares about the interests of black people, who cares about the interests of women.
And she's a person who's willing to listen to all demands from all sides, you know, and not running from anything. That's right.
And we're going to continue to make demands because for me, this is just one of the demands, one of the demands I had in order to even feel comfortable voting in November.
I wanted a black woman, VP in particular, comma, Comilla. I wanted a black woman on the Supreme Court was Biden. And he said he's going to do and we wanted a black agenda, which he presented, which can still be stronger, especially in regards to economic equity, package reparations, whatever you want to call it. But I'm excited. All right.
Well, let me ask you a couple of questions, because, I mean, social media has said these things. And let's let's just clear up a couple of things right now.
We know she attended Howard University. She's a member of a a.k.a. Alpha Kappa Alpha. But people say she's not black. By the way.
That could be a thing to I realize a lot of people don't like a.k.a. sorry, especially interesting ones has nothing to do with anything. That's just what I see as this observation that I have. I don't know what they got against gays, but people think, OK, he's a boogeyman stuck up, especially when they light. So that's a strike to go on for some people.
So if everybody out there she is Jamaican and Indian descent, she is black.
She is absolutely, positively a black woman. She is black. Now, I didn't know that that was ever a thing that people came in from the Caribbean. Didn't mean you were black.
Now, also, we they said that she's convicted, Madde.
People have got mass of African-American people locked up and she doesn't care about black people.
I don't I don't I don't understand where that comes from. I would tell folks that the San Francisco district attorney and California attorney general positions are executive roles. Kamala Harris was an executive, so she oversaw 8000 prosecutors. That means that as a D.A. AG, it's not like Senator Harris would have been personally involved in the day to day assignment of every staff member in case she was not personally involved in every court proceeding or charging decision.
So that's just foolish. OK. All right.
Well, let's go to and I also I also will say that, you know, a public defender in San Francisco named Nikki Solis, it's a great article that she wrote.
She actually said Kamala Harris was the most progressive prosecutor in California. That's what she said.
And people often talk about this program that they believe that she did this, that if your kids didn't go to school, they would lock you up the children's parents.
Yes, the truancy program. And she said she remember she was on the Breakfast Club and we asked her about that. I wish we had the clip. And she said, you know, she was just trying to scare parents into making their kids. She never let them know. How many people did she lock up? Then she said zero. And she said, no. I mean, you've got a fact check that, of course. But she said nobody actually got locked up from that program.
Hmm. All right. Well, let's open up the phone lines. Hello.
Who's this? You know this gentleman from Jacksonville? What's up, brother? We're talking Kamala Harris. What are your thoughts?
OK, good morning. I envy Angela Yee and Charlamagne. He's I really wasn't Rocawear because because I didn't do my research, you know, from just listening to everybody else. But just come to find out she was actually doing a job man. And I like it. And I think that's exactly what we need to get behind this and we need to support it. So that's my I agree with you. OK, I agree with. All right, thank you, Bob.
800 585 One 051. We'll take some more of your calls. We're talking Kamala Harris. What are your thoughts as The Breakfast Club? Good morning.
I know this is your first call me and your opinions to the Breakfast Club topic.
Come on. Eight hundred five eight five one five one morning, everybody is D.J. Envy.
Angela Charlemagne, the guy we are the Breakfast Club. Now, if you're just joining us, we're talking about Kamala Harris. I will open up the phone lines and ask you, what are your thoughts? That's what we're asking. Hello? Who's this?
Claudia. Hey, Claudia. Where are you calling from, Claudia? Well, I go on Brader in Queens, Queens.
Well, listen to this. Isn't that woman the one in California when they prove that the guy was innocent? She refused to let him out of jail and she was the D.A.?
I think that Kevin Cooper, yes, it was her.
And then she also wanted mothers to go to jail if their kids didn't go to school. If they you send your kid to school and they don't show up, she wants to put them in jail.
Well, yes. She said she was trying to scare parents, scare parents into making their kids go to school. That was for the kids who were constantly cutting school or not showing up to school on time. So she said she was trying to scare parents into making their kids go to school.
I really want to know something that she has done to to really prove that she can do something as vice president. I think I can tell you a bunch of things. They don't pick her for show.
No, I can tell you a bunch of things. I mean, you know, she had to back on track program, which set non-violent offenders on a path to new jobs and help them rebuild within their communities. She had the Coalition to the Exploitation of Kids, which spearheaded the task force combating the human trafficking of girls. She actually stopped prosecuting young girls for prostitution because she acknowledged that they were victims who needed treatment for trauma and not criminals who needed to be incarcerated.
You know, people talk about it, keep saying like she used to lock people up for weed. And it's like there's a public defender in San Francisco. Her name her name is a public defender in San Francisco. Her name is Nicky Solis. She actually said that's a lie. She said that marijuana sale cases were routinely reduced to misdemeanors and marijuana possession cases were not even on the court's docket. It was simply not charged unless there was a large Broox case are a unique circumstance because she said that was one of the reform minded approaches that Senator Harris took.
So, I mean, listen, I just tell people, go do your own research, has plenty of information out there if you really want to find it now, we would not. So because she's a prosecutor, but now she mentions I say the lady mentioned Kevin Cooper.
That case in Comilla allegedly did not a DNA test that people believe could free innocent man. Do we have information on that? Because I'm not aware of it or I really don't know.
But I will continue to tell people that, you know, when you are a D.A. or an A.G., that's an executive role. Like Kamala Harris literally oversaw 8000 prosecutors. So that means that she would not have been personally involved in the day to day assignments of every staff member in case you she wouldn't be personally involved in every court proceeding or charging decision. So I would have to really look into that Kevin Cooper case and see. But I highly doubt she was the lead prosecutor on that case and oversaw literally 8000 of the prosecutors.
And now I'm reading this says Kamala did not withhold evidence to exonerate an innocent man on death row. They said Kamala had no involvement with the Kevin Cooper as he had already exhausted all of his appeals before she was an A.G. So there you go.
How did you find that interview? I Googled the information is there there was is two great articles that came out yesterday. One is on Medium and it's actually titled Debunking All the lies and Myths and Rumors about Senator Kamala Harris.
It says Cooper needed clemency from Arnold Schwarzenegger and the governor, Jerry Brown. That's why we need clemency from that complicated and do it.
All right. Well, let's go to another caller. Hello.
Who this morning is Chris from the Bronx. Hey, Chris. Good morning. We're talking to Kamala Harris. What are your thoughts? Yes, sir.
So what feedback that I have is just like you said, you've been seeing some things online. I have as well, too. And I just want people to be careful about posting certain things that may or may not be true, because anything negative against Biden or Harris is going to be a positive reaction. Secondly, I feel that Biden now needs to focus on white women and Hispanics a lot because those are who are really going to swing the votes and African-American, African American and black people or not black people.
No, no, no.
I work with me. All black people are coming out. We didn't come out in 2016. It wasn't voter suppression of voter suppression. So black, that's right, rise up in 2016, but they're still white women and they're still Hispanic, so don't be like, all right, we're driving home the black people. And then guess what? There's a coalition of everyone else, us, because we only make up 13 percent of the population in this country.
So what I would to make sure he doesn't alienate other people as well. But no, let me tell you something.
Do you know do you know that in 2016 a large majority of white women actually voted for Donald Trump? And if you look at 2012, listen, in 2012, four point four million people in 2016, four point four million people who voted in 2012 stayed home right in 2016. And a third of a third of them were black and they were in the majority of the swing states.
You're absolutely right. I saw that. And the funny thing about those white women that voted for Donald Trump two weeks later, they were doing the me too movement all over the world. Those are funny, but, yeah, hopefully, you know, we'll see what happens and people actually turn out to vote. So there's no voter depression this time. All right.
Thank you for calling me. That takes a little, quote, inspiration to voter suppression is when you're just depressed about the can't believe you don't believe in what the candidates are talking about. So you just stay home.
Eight hundred five eight five one two five one. What are your thoughts about Kamala Harris is The Breakfast Club. Good morning.
It's topic time. Pick the phone call 800 five eight five one five one to join into the discussion with the Breakfast Club, talk about it. Morning, everybody.
Is D.J. and Angela Ye Charlemagne, the guy we are The Breakfast Club. Now, if you're just joining us, we're talking Kamala Harris. All right. On social media, I've been seeing all types of crazy things about her.
So we just ask him, what are your thoughts? Hello? Who's this? What, what, what what are your thoughts on Kamala Harris?
Honestly, I think she's one of the most viable VP candidates that we've probably had since like Al Gore. If you look at somebody like and is literally standing there while Trump is committing these atrocities, basically he's standing behind the president and then even involving Biden, he wasn't really somebody who was there to make any fundamental change within himself. Like I feel like giving her performance in the debate. Kamala Harris is someone who will actually fight for what she believes and not even agree.
The base in her interview of Cavener, you could tell that she's passionate about it. There you go.
It's not a role that she's just, you know, showing up and standing behind the president as a figurehead. She's somebody who's going to go out there and fight to make changes that really hopefully will hopefully really impact our day to day lives, whereas.
Yes, you are absolutely right. Hitting so many nails on the head, because I like her some of those same reasons, I like the fact she stands up to systems, you know what I'm saying? Like people you got if you people do a research, she refuses to seek the death penalty. Even on a case where a very respected police officer was killed by a gang member, she wouldn't even give that person the death penalty. And police officers hated her for that.
And that tells you that she's willing to look at the case as a case by case person basis, as opposed to just looking at the police officer versus the civilian. What are the details of that case? What really impacted the outcome of that case? And you could tell that it is willing to invest that much into one case like that. He's going to definitely be there to put up that fight if Joe Biden said something out of turn. I definitely believe Kamala Harris is somebody who would put us in this place without looking at him as the president.
I can't question his decision.
We've already saw that. We saw that in the debate. You know, saw as you saw, she stood up to Biden in the debate and called him out on his segregationist bus policing record. You know what I'm saying? We saw that.
I would love to see a VP debate. I think she would PENCE because he has absolutely no morals. He holds himself as a moral character. And he and to all these atrocities, I would love to see them debate on some real issues that really impact the people. And I think they're honestly they're scared of her because they don't know how to say right now they think she's not black enough.
OK, you know, she's looking for something, but they really don't have anything fundamental where you can attack her character other than race.
But that's right. Well, thank you so much. And listen to what Senator Harry's not black then. Shirley Chisholm, not black because both her parents from the Caribbean, too. So we know what you're saying.
They're also you know, they were talking about when she was on the show, when she was talking about marijuana and when she if she had ever smoked and what she was listening to that was crazy because we explain it and broke that down, how that came across. They also talk about recreational marijuana and they say that was not legalized in the eighteen. So marijuana possession was illegal the entire time.
Kamala Harris was the D.A., A.G. and even Charlemagne's says she's created so many different programs like the ones that are back on track program, which provided what jobs, education, housing assistance to nonviolent offenders to get on a good path once they got out of jail.
And, you know, with the marijuana thing, like I said earlier, her marijuana sales cases were routinely reduced to misdemeanors and marijuana possession cases weren't even on the court docket. And I really respect the fact that she stands up to all them. Old white man, Brett Kavanaugh, William Barr, Jeff Sessions. Have you seen her at the Senate hearings? I love the way she pushes the line on all those well, on all of old white male politicians.
And she really reminds me of a person who was not there to be your friend. She's there to do her job. And like you said, she she don't play. I like the fact she can call out Joe Biden and still become the vice presidential nominee. That says a lot. All right. Well, what's the moral of the story?
I mean, the moral of the story for me, man, is like I honestly believe that the Biden Harris ticket, more so because of because of Harris and because of the way I think she'll push Biden could be transformative to the black community, as Lyndon did Lyndon B. Johnson administration was if you don't know what the Lyndon B. Johnson administration did as far as civil rights, Google is your friend, Lyndon B. Johnson was a civil rights hero, but he was also a racist.
OK, but his time in office really created a lot of societal change.
All right, go, go, go. Do your Google Civil Rights Act of 1964, Voting Rights Act of 1965, Housing and Urban Development Act 65. That was all Lyndon B. Johnson. All right. Well, we've got room on the way. Yes.
And we are going to be talking about the NBA and conjugal visits. All right. We'll get into that next.
It's The Breakfast Club. Good morning, Plissken. This and all the guys guys. The rumor report got is the rumor report, The Breakfast Club. Well, with the NBA season underway, as you know, the players are in that bubble.
And are they getting any love if they're not married? Well, there are some rules. And the NBA has released a memo announcing guess rules pertaining to players in the bubble as they are getting ready for the playoffs. He said among those also not allowed to play a guest per memo, current prospective staff or business relationships, including agents, trainers, massage physical therapist, personal chefs and tattoo artist Yahoo! So those people are not allowed to be in the bubble.
Any individual the player has not previously met in person with whom the player has had limited in-person interactions.
So if you only know somebody through social media, you can't D.M. them and be like, hey, come see me. Each player is allowed one ticket per playoff game for a guest, plus an additional admission for a child. And that child has to be 32 inches and below. Our player guest can quarantine and teams market for three days, travel to Orlando and then again for four days to travel directly to Orlando and. Quarantine, seven days there, you can bring in family and establish long standing personal friends into the bubble and it's going to be four, I guess, per player, but can be exceeded for children.
Guests can travel on team charters following testing and guests will be allowed to attend games.
So those are the rules. Now, Stephen A. Smith said that he thinks that these players should be able to get some type of visit. Here's what he said.
You better let somebody come up and see him. It would be nice to see, you know, the whole family and all that stuff. I've got that. You understand? I really, really do. But you eaglet was somebody you could let a wife or girlfriend come.
I would strongly advise the NBA to facilitate that happening before August 30.
It will go a long way. Are you advocating for conjugal visits in the bubble? I mean, the bottom line is they didn't do anything. They're not jail.
Yeah, I mean, a little stress reliever every once in a while. I don't see nothing wrong with that. Oh, yeah, I don't.
Is it worth risking though. Is it worth risking. They're not going to worth risking that billion dollar industry that somebody's in because think about it, if one person comes in in like five or ten people get coronavirus, they've got to shut the whole thing down, but they've got to work at risk.
But they got to check everybody, you know, the pressure of being an NBA player in scoring and winning and all that. Sometimes you need a little stress reliever.
Yeah, but how do you know if you met somebody in person or not? If you only know them of social media? Like, how do they even know that for sure?
Treated like prison and treated like prison. You got to be married. I'll tell you something, though. That bubble got to be heaven for the gay NBA players right now. All right? It's got to be like you've got to be a few gay NBA players that they're living the life probably. And they're trying to convince the guys to try something new like each other.
What's wrong with you, man? What's wrong with you? I mean, all right.
Nela Boosey is not too happy with Mark Zuckerberg because his Instagram page has been shut down and he doesn't know why. Listen to this.
Mark Zuckerberg, I need to talk to you. I don't know what I did, but I knew my Instagram, but I don't even know what I did. But this is how I feed my family. Do not take this off Instagram. You need to take me to orientation or something. But you can't put me out of school when you make a no show Monday. Mark Zuckerberg and none of the rabble. I need my Instagram back. I got people money.
I got a pope.
You know why your page got shut down? I looked on Boosie page the other day and he had a girl with her legs wide open with something between them.
You know, you don't know what it was. I don't know what your page got shut down. Come on. He's confused.
He doesn't know why he needs his back. That's how he feeds his family right now. Got to get it. You know, got to get somebody meet.
Somebody need to show buzy the rules of Instagram so he can. Yeah, he'd be breaking up. It would. To a reality show. I don't know. Let's ask the executive producer. Yeah. Maybe you might still be in the works.
All right. Khatib says that her new album will be like Beyonce's Lemonade. She told Elle magazine that my music is going is always going to make a woman feel like a bad bitch when you make a woman feel like she's the baddest bitch in the room. To me, that's female empowerment. But this album is going to be really different. Of course, is going to have my moments, my personal relationship moments. And she said, I do know that my relationship has a lot of drama and everything, but there's a lot of love.
There's a lot of passion, there's a lot of trust. There's a big friendship. There's always us against the world. If you all are so curious to know about my relationship and blah, blah, blah, I'm going to put it in the music and you can buy it. I'm not going to give it to you. Offer free.
True. That's the way to do it. And I think she has her own fans up and popping now, right. Yeah.
She got have live on only fans trying to figure that out, but it's not going to be anything naked on the air. So are you people that thought you were going to get a glimpse of Khateeb that's not going down.
Now, Cee Lo has apologized after some things that he said, calling out Nicki Minaj, Khateeb, making the stallion's music, if you guys recall, and we did the story yesterday, he told far out, we are adults. There should be a time and a place for adult content. As adults and artists, we should at least attempt to be each other's accountability partners in some regard, he said. The stereotypes that are celebrated and perpetuated ultimately make the perception a reality.
It is disenfranchising and has caused a great deal of problems. And then in particular he calls out those three women. But now he has gone to Twitter and said, Good morning, everybody.
There seems to be a misunderstanding with a quote taken from an interview I did a few days ago while promoting my new project. Firstly, I'm an advocate of artistic freedom and expression, as well as a fan of Nicki Cardium. Meghan, I know most of them personally and consider Cardi an offset family. Therefore, I would never disrespect them by any means. I acknowledge them is all is powerful, beautiful and influential women and professionals. I wholeheartedly apologize to each of them for the inconvenience they have been caused due to a snippet of my interview being used as a headline and in turn creating controversy and disconnect between me and these ladies as well as their fans know that I support everyone.
It was a part of our community and culture. Always have and always will. I don't know where the misunderstanding was necessarily.
I mean, I did a fellowship and said what he said to anyone was I heard Angela. You say he apologized that my mind went to see. That's why you shouldn't say things that you won't end up apologizing for. But the truth of the matter is, Cee Lo came up in an era where he's heard worse.
Yes, he absolutely heard Lil Kim. You heard Foxy Brown, you heard Trina, you heard Jackie O you absolutely heard worse from men and women.
You ain't going to tell me that wop is dirty and bombast by the Dog Pound and Snoop Dogg. Remember that song? Oh, man. Come on, man, stop. We've got to stop being so judgmental. And by the way, Goodie Mob always put out music that was socially conscious. They always put out music that was of socially redeeming value. But they also came from an era where other people didn't do that. And if you're not going to point the finger at that point, the finger at Cardium, Megan, Nikki.
OK, well, I'm Angela Yee and that's your room report.
All right. Thank you, Miss Charlamagne. Yes, sir. Please give me that down, too.
We need Lou host to come to the front of the congregation. We like to have a word with him, please. All right. We'll get into that next. Keep it like this. The Breakfast Club. Good morning.
It's time for Don't Give the Day. Don't you think the Democrats are being dumped the other day, a little bit of a mixed bag like I don't feel the other day club. I've been called a lot of my twenty three.
Here is that donkey everyday is a new white donkey.
Today for Thursday, August 13th, goes to former college football coach Lou Holtz. Lou, hope to always be OK with me because he coached the South Carolina Gamecocks for six years, dropping a close bond for the South Carolina Gamecocks.
Damn it. All right. Salute to the three that's home, Columbia, South Carolina, the Metro, everybody listening to us on hot one on three nine right now, game South Carolina Gamecocks. That's my wife's alma mater. But donkey today does not discriminate. All right. Now, there is a debate on whether or not college football should come back this year because of covid-19 greedy schools. Greedy ass NCAA don't care about those kids. They just want to make their money.
All right. That human Nate and moolah. OK, if the twenty twenty NCAA football season is canceled, the financial toll of coronavirus could cost them four billion dollars. OK, four billion. Would it be all right? Trust me, the only reason the NCAA really wants the football season to start is to make money. That's it. Nothing more, nothing less. Student athletes, I'm sure, want to play because some of them have dreams of going to the NFL so they can change their life and make some money like the NCAA is.
You only got a four year window in school. So I don't know how that impacts your eligibility if you have to cancel the season because of coronavirus. But it's not like those kids are getting paid. OK, I really wonder what coaches and athletic directors are saying to the student athletes right now to make them want to play or encourage them to play because those young men aren't stupid. Please, some of y'all hit me up on social media and let me know what the coaches and athletic directors are telling the student athlete, because I really want to know what they're saying to encourage them to play those student athletes.
No, y'all only want them to play because college football brings so much money to the schools. All right. Most power five schools on average make nearly half of their total operating revenue from football. So I really want to know what they are telling these kids to motivate them to play, because other than just the love that those student athletes have for the game, the scholarship, which won't be taken away, I'm sure, just because, you know, they canceled the season because of coronavirus are a shot at the NFL.
It's not those reasons why should they go out there and risk their health and potentially their life?
Well, whatever Lou Holtz was saying yesterday on Fox News, that was a masterclass on what not to say to motivate players to play during the coronavirus pandemic. Let's hear you're saying they should play? I think they should play.
But then again, despite that, I think that you have to say to the player you want to play if you have a problem, if you have a problem, if you're diabetic and you have to live a legitimate reason in the world, but absolutely don't play. The rest of you want to play, let's go play. I think that we shut everything down for six months. I'm going crazy about being caught. I think other people are tired of let's move on with our life.
When they stormed Normandy, they knew that they were going to be cash. There could be two percent of the people that can they go to the emergency room, go for covid-19. Two percent of it is for that young people, Bill. They think it's like cancer. They think they're going to die.
See is 83 years old. He's living every moment, every day, like it could be his last, as he should, because it might be. But that doesn't mean these kids have to if I'm worried about getting sick in. Possibly dying, and I'm not ready to risk that for football. You're not going to get me to play by comparing college football today. All right.
More than 4000 allied troops lost their lives in the D-Day invasion. OK, the whole Normandy thing. All right. Four thousand. I am not a historian. I am not the highest grade of weed in the dispensary. But I don't think college football is as important as the storming of Normandy. Am I missing something here? Please let me know if I am war versus NCAA football. Two things that are usually just done for profit. OK, all of the companies profit from war, just like all schools profit from football.
There is big money behind war. There is big money behind NCAA college football. Personally, I don't know if you need either. All right. But I know people like their money. And, you know, Lou Holtz said there is risk to everything true, but you should take calculated risk. All right. Not rash ones. All right.
Sending those kids out to play just because you are afraid of the money you're going to lose seems rash to me, because the only thing you are really calculating is the amount of money you're going to lose. And guess what? The people getting paid, they are not really taking no risk because they not the ones on the football field. They are not the ones that are potentially spreading the virus to each other, OK? They're not the ones who have the underlying conditions.
And they might get sick and die because y'all wanted to send them out there to play football just so y'all can make money and see double play. But listen, hey, to all the student athletes out there. If you want it, go for it. Take a risk.
Don't always play it safe or you'll die wondering, you know, what may have happened. Or if you listen to Lou host, you might just die. All right. Please give Lou Holtz the sweet sounds and Hambleton's.
Oh, no, you are the donkey. I'm the.
Doggie day, he oh, all right, well, thank you, Charlamagne, for that donkey today.
Yes, indeed. All right. When we come back, ask ye eight hundred five eight five one two five one.
If you need relationship advice, any type of advice, call ye. Now is the Breakfast Club. Good morning.
The Breakfast Club. Come on, relationship advice, any personal advice, just the really advice call up now for the. Morning everybody. Is D.J. Envy.
Angela Ye shall I mean the guy we are the Breakfast Club is it's to ask aski. Hello, who's this.
Yeah, this is A.C. from Detroit. Lots of ac. What's your question for you. So I'm a horrible friend.
My best friend got married to some guy and the guy she got married to turned into my best friend. So I'm kind of like rooting for both of them now. And every time I got an issue now, they want to come to me. So they got a kid together and is getting like really toxic, is getting really bad. And, you know, one minute they're together, the next minute they're not. This is back. We're back. All right.
And so the guy who's, like I said, is my best friend. Now, he wants to leave and he wants to stay and he wants it. So I'm always giving him advice. He never takes my advice. So my question for you is, what do I do as the friend? Am I supposed to, like, just continue listening and giving advice or should I just cut them both off?
I have a similar situation and what I had to learn to do was mind my business when it comes to their relationship, because I don't want to be in the middle of it, especially with couples that keep on breaking up and getting back together, breaking up and getting back together. You just kind of have to mind your business.
And so what I would do is tell both of them, look, I don't want to be in the middle of whatever you have going on. Don't ask me questions about what the other person is doing. I don't even want to know what you are doing. I just want us to be friends. And I don't want to be in the midst of your relationship drama.
And it. Would that make me a bad friend, though? No, it wouldn't.
It would make you a fair person because it's not fair to you. Like, you got to think about yourself. First of all, if they keep on breaking up and getting back together, you're going to end up in the middle of it if you're trying to give advice and then they're using you like, oh, well, he told me this and he told me then if you know things the other person doesn't know and then now they're asking you for information, it's just not a fair situation for you to be in the middle of it.
OK, you can be someone's friend on other things. But when it comes to there, especially because this is an ongoing thing, I can see if it was like one time they had an issue, you help them talk through it. But if this is like all the time back and forth, back and forth, that's too much.
You're right. I appreciate it. Thank you so much. All right. No problem. All right.
Askey 855 One 051. If you need relationship advice, he now is the Breakfast Club. Good morning.
Keep it real well, which is some real advice with Angela. It's eskies. Morning, everybody.
Is D.J. Envy Angela Ye shall I mean the guy we are the Breakfast Club in the middle of ask ye. Hello. Who's this.
Tiffany. Hey Tiffany. Where are you calling from. You're walking. All right. What's the question for you. Oh my question is how would I handle like my relationship. I was dating this guy and I ended up almost getting kidnapped by someone, so they kind of made me develop a phobia to where I ended up losing my job and getting kicked out of class because I had a fear. But instead of him being there helping me get through everything, I ended up breaking up with me and I'll have anything to offer him.
But I never did anything for it from the beginning.
Well, no, when it sounds like you don't need to be with him because you shouldn't want to be with anybody that has no empathy and is not there for you the way that he should be. And to have felt like you have a lot of work that you need to do with yourself. And that means that it is time for you to get some professional help so you can learn how you can move forward in life. Right. And how to cope with some of these issues that you have.
Have you try to do that?
Yes, I got a bonus for that. As far as I was thinking, this is like maybe it's the spiritual warfare I'm a gay person is that I can go as far as the U.S. you have an appointment with a therapist, but I didn't really go to the police about the incident or anything because it was just a guy that I met. He tried to take me out and he tried to set me up, but I ended up getting away because I had my arm on my guy and everything and everything then.
But I was still kind of dating a guy who loved me. But he was like very, very, very serious. And I wasn't sure if that's the guy that I really wanted to be with. I was still out mingling. Mm hmm. But OK, I think that before you even have to think about who you want to be with, we got to figure out how you can get the help that you need, because that is very serious.
I know you said you haven't gone to the police. That might be something because, you know, he could try to do this to somebody else. And this sounds like a person that does not need to be on the streets at all so that they'll make a report.
But this has been like a year. That's that's fine.
I would still go and do that report. Whatever you need to do, if there's a restraining order, there might be other. People who have complained or filed reports against him as well. I think the same guy talking to other women at the gas station and I was looking at my own if you got kidnapped, because I know there's a lot of the children that's coming to Mr. Putin's, I think. What I thought he was trying to do that.
He said, well, you want to be kidnapped. Oh, my gosh.
Please make sure you go and follow down and file that police report. Hold on the line. We're going to get your information and see if we can. I know you said you're in Milwaukee. Yes. OK, hold on the line. OK, hold on. All right.
Ask 845 one two five one. Now we got room is on the way. Yes. And we're going to talk about Salem, Mali. That is Lauryn Hill and Abraham Marley's daughter. She had posted a video talking about some issues that she has that she realizes from past trauma. And we'll tell you what the update is with that, because that went viral and her intention was different than what the headlines were trying to make it seem like it was.
All right. Well, we'll get into that next. Keep it like this. The Breakfast Club. Good morning.
This is the weather report with Angela. That is close enough. Yes. So this was really cute and sweet, Beyonce called up one of her fans now. If you saw this on social media and Beyonce's mother, Tina Larson, posted it, apparently somebody posted guys, my niece's reaction to black is king like this is how Beyonce is making our black generation feel. And here was the video.
See, and said, this has me in tears, it makes all the stress and worry, all the haters and negativity that was put out there to try to distract, tear down and deter from her intentions. But this video makes it all worthwhile. This is the message that Beyonce worked so hard to convey. I prayed hard. The message would get through and that little black girls everywhere could see that beauty that is in our black people and our culture and our ancestors.
She is beautiful and so is this. Then apparently Beyonce even called and spoke to her nieces. So that's really dope.
Yeah, I saw that and I thought it was dope. And I also was laughing at the I guess it was the aunt or somebody said, oh, Beyonce. They just called India's a real. But then she went on to say exactly what Beyonce told Denise.
Like, I'm like, oh, that's exciting.
You know, you know, you understand. But you can't you can't say, no, I don't understand if you say anything real and you should keep that to yourself.
I mean, people are excited to be a lot more to it than what, except I would hope nothing negative or nothing like that. So, you know, it was pretty ambiguous. You didn't say she didn't recorded and posted recording or anything like that. Now, R. Kelly reportedly got to one point two million dollars last year, even though he said he didn't have any money and he opened a bank account in someone else's name, allegedly. So they said the bank account was created after he was charged with sex crimes.
And they said he opened the bank account in the name of a nominee, someone else's name, and he can be heard on recorded jail calls directing people to contact the person to receive payments indirectly from him. In addition to that, three people that were arrested for allegedly bribing and threatening victims in his case.
This is not the brightest are not going to it at this point, bro.
He's getting royalties. Royalties come to your name or your production company. Then you open it up in another account. And you know, every call when you're in jail, they record your calls.
So you're giving directions and giving directions.
Now, as an alleged manager and adviser, Barclays reportedly threatened to reveal sexually explicit photos of one victim to the public if she didn't end her lawsuit. Michael Williams is accused of setting fire to an SUV in June that was parked outside a Florida home where an alleged victim had been staying. If you remember as well, Clarey, who was his ex-girlfriend, posted a photo on social media saying that her vehicle was set on fire.
So if this stuff is true, if this stuff is true, I, Kelley, must have some money because I'm sure these people are doing these acts of crime for free.
I mean, yeah, that would be even crazier. But come on now, threatening people like you think they're not going to go to the cops and tell us.
All right. Now, Lauryn Hill and Roseanne Marley's daughter, Stella Marley, she had posted a video. It was a two hour Instagram video. And it seemed like she was really just working through issues that she has as a 21 year old that she realizes come from past trauma, from her own childhood. Now, here's what she had to say. And part of that video, me and Michael got into a fight.
And when we fight, it can get very volatile and I can get very volatile. And I pretty much have a breakdown. And then I had a flashback and it was my mom and dad arguing and it clicked. And I was like, wow, I'm doing exactly what my mom did. And then it clicked again. And I was like, wow, where is my father? And I just came to conclusion of how much of my life I have, though, and how much of me is there simply because my dad just wasn't around.
She did not, however, appreciate how that to our conversation ended up having clips taken out to deliver a message that she didn't intend. She said, Jesus Christ, the stadium just loves a headline. The discussion that I had was a larger conversation about a certain trauma that I experienced from a lack of unity in the household. This is nothing new. As a matter of fact, this is common for many people. And I'm glad so many of you were able to resonate with the healing that I speak of.
But please do not go bashing my parents right now, especially my father. I never said I did not love them. I said that their shortcomings created trauma that I now need to consciously and actively heal from. Here's what else she had to say after this video was released. You know that the chatroom takes everything out of context. I spoke on that subject for two hours and it was about more than just it is complex. It's a very complex topic.
And really what I was discussing was how a lack of unity in the household can create severe trauma that you don't even aware of. And now I had to go back and see where these different things impacted my life and how that impacted my life. At the end of the day, I never saw my father was dead. Be completely I just said that he wasn't as present as I needed him to be.
I mean, I'll be honest with you, I loved that conversation. And the reason I love her whole conversation is because I have five kids and, you know, there is no instruction manual when it comes to raising a kid. That is going to be some things that I do grow. And it's going to be a lot of things that I do, right, but when I hear things like that, it makes me, you know, look at my self as a father and say, let me make sure that I'm doing what I should be doing and I'm doing it the proper way.
And I'm making sure I'm listening to my kids to make sure that I'm doing what I'm supposed to do as a dad.
The crazy thing is you don't know if you're doing it the proper way until, you know, you start seeing how the kids are reacting to it. Yeah, because you can't look at somebody else, because what works for somebody else may not work for you, but you really don't know until you see how your kids turn up. Mm hmm.
Now, after this video came out, Roseanne Marley actually apologized to his daughter. He said, I love her very much and do apologize for any contributions I may have added by arguing in front of her. As a child, I've grown as a man, a spiritual being and a father. I am constantly growing and will teach my children to always take the high road in any disagreements. I will be there for her, no matter how many hours, days, months or years it will take.
I will be the best dad that I can be when love.
All right. I get jumped in my house anyway, so I don't be arguing here. I got time for that. I'm in the house with four women for black when I get jumped all the time. Yeah, but when you get you just be quiet. Be quiet. Even if you if you feel like you're about to say something back. Shut up. You don't talk like that. Mommy, don't talk to daddy like that. And like you.
You know what? Absolutely right. All the absolutely right.
And yesterday, Nick Cannon, there was an exclusive story that came out on the chatroom room saying that he was planning to sue Viacom for one point five billion dollars, according to his representatives. Well, according to the New York Daily News, these reports are inaccurate. This is all by a person who has identified herself as a representative, Nick Cannon. She said Nick's focus right now is on unifying communities and combating bigotry, racism and hate of all kinds, not seeking personal financial gain.
I mean, I knew that story wasn't real and I heard it because it didn't sound right, especially being that they can and already has apologized and admitted he was wrong. And, you know, he's going around trying to educate himself on the Jewish community. Like, I'm like, why would he turn around and then sue Viacom? That don't even make any sense. Yeah, that's why the media.
So they were saying that he was going to donate all the money, though, and I didn't even get that from I would love where I want to know where they got that from. The media is is a very dangerous time. People report on anything and say anything and people run with it. Man it's very well.
Absolutely. All right. Well, I'm Angela Yee, and that is your roomer report. All right.
Thank you, Miss Yee. Now. When we come back, we got the People's Choice mix to get your request in and shout to revolt. We'll see you tomorrow night. 805 eight five one two five one is The Breakfast Club.
Good morning. Good morning, everybody.
Is D.J. N.V. Angeles. Charlamagne, the guy we are the Breakfast Club. Again, Kamala Harris. We've been talking about her all morning long before you just decide on anything because you heard something, please. Do you? Google's a lot of the stuff that people are saying absolutely, positively false.
Don't just do your Google like, you know, go resource research, reliable sources. You know, there's a great article that a public defender in San Francisco named Nikki Nikki Solis wrote to the USA Today. And Nikki Solis is a public defender. And she said she hates the fact that she has to come to the defense of a prosecutor. But she actually said that Senator Kamala Harris was the most progressive prosecutor in California. And it's another good article on Medium in the title of it is debunking the lies, smears and distortions about Kamala Harris.
And they have so many things from her actual record and links to her actual record in here. And 50 times, Kamala Harris advocated our accomplished criminal justice reform. They have her whole record as a California California attorney general. So you can go there and actually see what the hell she did as opposed to just watching YouTube videos as you're being manipulated right now and don't even know you're being manipulated by the right Trump administration, rushing by all types. It's all types of misinformation out there that's trying to keep you from the polls.
But I also want to say there might be things that she did that you don't like, and that's fine, too. I think it's really important to moving forward, decide what's important and what it is that you want to see what policies mean a lot to you. So make sure you do register to vote and get out there and vote as well.
And that's why you just find out what's true. Just find out what's real and what's so. You got to fire all of these meme going. Like you got a meme going around with Michael B. Jordan as Oscar Grant in Fruitvale Station. And they're literally saying that Senator Kamala Harris was the prosecutor of us. Oscar Grant, when that's just a bold faced lie.
She wasn't she wasn't even the D.A. in that county when Oscar Grant was shot. She was the D.A. in San Francisco County, Zahidi, blaming her for things she wasn't even over. Like Dwight, Dwight, Dwight Man is really doing a great job of smearing her name. She's a prosecutor, so she wasn't perfect. But come on, you're going to make a bold faced lies, so make sure you definitely go out there and vote.
Shout out to Levi's, Levi's is teaming up with Rock the Vote to help get as many people as possible registered and ready to vote this fall. Vote, vote, vote, please.
Now you can text Levi's to seven eight eight six eight three to get registered and find out key dates and voting how tos from Rock the Vote. When we come back, we got the positive note is the Breakfast Club. Good morning. Good morning, everybody.
