NB Commentary: Sometimes you just have to step in there and say your piece in the face of total ignorance coming from folks who set themselves up as being one who is in the know. I watched this video up until the 1:02:30 mark when he and his guest took a serious turn for the worse in reporting on this Dallas thing and in particular, reporting on what they perceive is "up" with the inclusion of Micah X Jackson in this scenario.

You can watch the video from this point to see what I am ranting about. This dude took me all the way back to my college years when I had to straighten some folks out about the "Black Experience." Most white folks don't have a clue… and in 2016… it don't make no sense. My comments are listed below the video.
Okay, I listened to your pod-cast up until you got to 1:02:30 Mark when you started to talk about the New Black Panthers.
Here is where I have to say your journalism took a nose dive.
You clearly have no idea what the differences are between a Black Muslim, a Black Panther, a member of the New Black Panther Party, a member of the Black Lives Matter Movement or even what Professor Griff stands for.
Just like you cannot bundle all white supremacists activists groups or patriots into the same pile, you cannot put all of these and many other groups into the same pile either.
I suggest you find another source of inquiry besides Wikipedia which has been known to report false information.. sometimes reporting events as soon as they happen with full details. Where do they get their details from if not from some insider?
One of the things that is very, very annoying about white guys like you and your guest is that you appear to be intelligent but you have no clue about what you are talking about when it comes to Black folks and their issues.
For one thing, many African Americans use the red, black and green colors and most of the individuals who use them are NOT militant or part of a break away society. In fact, Muammar Qaddafi used the same image.
FYI Red = Blood, Black = color, and Green = land. It is a symbol of solidarity among African Americans who identify with their contribution and heritage in this country and around the world. In fact, you will see these colors in many African flags, just like you see red, white and blue in a lot of European flags.
Also, the fist of power is a symbol of solidarity. It means united we are powerful, it means unity, it does not mean any of the BS you two are talking about.
The outfit he has on is called a "dashiki" and it DOES NOT AND IS NOT worn by the Black Panthers or the New Black Panther Members. It is worn by folks who wish to identify with their African heritage along with other African print garments, Again your ignorance is glaring!
You are clearly uninformed and maybe you should get your facts straight before you steer your listeners down the wrong path.
I find it quite hypocritical for you to mock the young woman because she did not eloquently express herself like a Malcolm X when you have someone like Bush for the president of the United states who barely made it out of high school. I don't know how you feel about Bush, but your comments and mockery is the stuff of disdain and are reprehensible in this type of journalism, unless you are going to line up with the other troll Youtube channels. What side of the New World Order Agenda are you??
I do know about the difference and if you want to know more, than you should discuss this with someone who does know the difference.
Your comments is why Black folks cringe at your attempts to speak about us when you are so unenlightened about who we are, how we feel and what we need to be a part of this country.
Maybe your ancestors mocked the so-called founding fathers who had the same desire to have their own land and be out from under the hand of tyranny as many Africans in this country have faced for 400 years. You all got your freedom, right??
In conclusion, if you are about making change in this world, and steering away from the ridiculous psyops that are being played on the American people of all ethnicities, please do your homework before you speak. Otherwise, you will sound ignorant, and it's the ignorance of white folks like yourself, that make it hard for Black folks to see any advantage of aligning themselves with you or accepting what you have to say as viable and worth taking seriously.
No, I am not a part of any of those movements, and most African Americans are not, but for you to lump them all together without a single idea about any of them based on a RBG flag; his attire and the "fist of Power" is highly insulting and misleading. I suggest you erase the entire part, because you obviously do not know what you are talking about.
Let me also add, that I find it interesting that you are quite comfortable with this man, this black man or any Black Man, joining the US military, going to another country and killing people who did nothing to him. These same black men come home to fewer rights and freedoms that the US military is supposedly trying to make sure others have. I did not hear you mock the insanity of that notion, but seem to appreciate the fact that he was in the military.. yeah, he fought for "his" country? But when that same man finds out that his country will not fight for him, and like you white folks, who feel the same way, somehow there is a difference and now the request for equal rights and human rights for black folks, no matter how they are expressed is laughable to you.
Let me tell you something, dear Mr. White Man, ain't nothing funny about when you're coming home from your US military duty; with PTSD and have to face the stark reality that you may be shot and/or killed by a Police officer on a city street because you are a Black Man in America!
