    I appreciate you keeping the subject of freedom and independence for our ancestors alive. Our ancestors HAVE fought hard to maintain stability in our communities but I’m sure they are sending love from beyond. Have a Merry Christmas Trevor and Pharrell! Don’t let the bedbugs bite!

    Umm… Juneteenth doesn't commemorate the day that "everyone became free". It commemorates the day (June 19, 1865) that the Emancipation Proclamation was officially announced in Texas by a Union general (the last state to "get the news"). The EP only freed enslaved people in states that were in rebellion against the United States. It didn't apply to states that weren't in rebellion but still allowed slavery (Delaware and Kentucky). "Everyone" wasn't free until the ratification of the 13th Amendment in December 1865.

    That was pretty good but Pharrell was a off with the details of Juneteenth. The slaves were set free in 1863 But the slaves in Texas did not learn of that until be 1865. Juneteenth started in Texas. These are important details.

  • Carol Miller

    Thru the history of US, many black people have given their lives in the development & protection of freedoms in this country. It's time they can not only share in the equality of those freedoms, but that America respect & honor the sacrifices. We know there will be a faction in the country that will resist - but one of the freedoms we all enjoy in USA - we're not forced to celebrate!

    We welcome with open arms Donald Trump here in Florida. We have a reputation to uphold here in Florida, we like giving the country something to laugh about. For starters; we have Disney with Mickey & Minnie and once our Governor is removed, Trump can replace him as our new Goofey. We Floridians are so intelligent that while most of the country was panicking over Covid-19, we had already stocked-up on McAfee & Norton products. So come to the Sunshine State, like Trump, you'll fit in with the rest of the oranges.

    Ok can someone just weigh me in on this whole Rihanna's album thing going on? I'm lost. I didn't even know until Trevor kept mentioning it. Also are they like dating or so? Cuz an idea just popped in my head. So you take Rihanna and you take Pharrell Williams and if you put it together you get RiRi Williams which is a Marvel character first Black Iron superhero! Now that's something else

    No body in the country was freed on the 4th of July. I thought it was the date of our declaration for independence and not our country's freedom from King George but just the start for everything.

    Is an HCBU a school where white people don’t go or it’s just predominately black? I would definitely go to school there, black people are super awesome.

    Blacks look down on each other from my experience and don’t support one another. Like I’ve stated many times, I had called my home town radio station, WZAK 107.9 a couple of years ago, some lady named Coco had answered the phone, I asked how do artists get their music on the station, she was rude and said they don’t play local artists music. I stopped listening to Radio One after that, along with BET and other affiliates. There’s one thing about me, I can’t be stopped, and I don’t need them because I’m that good. Our people are always talking about support or the lack of it, we are dived, and every man is for themselves.

    Warning might come off as racist: I'm sick not black Americans not sticking up for a Dark Skinned Black female in a leading role. Dark Skinned male can be a "sexiest man". Denzel. Nothing for a dark skinned female. I'm a white male and I noticed this. Why every nurse in a sitcom has to be a thick black lady.

    He’s a crook. Tried to rip off Marvin Gaye’s family with those songs and idk what happened with him and Teyana Taylor, too but she’s not speaking on it so I assume she doesn’t want to put him on blast. I’m sure he scammed her, too. I think he did that with Kelis. I really liked Pharrell until I found these things out. I don’t like people who do stuff like this. All the money in the world ain’t worth your soul. Do right by mankind people. Please.

    OAN, Next News Network and Newsmax just declared Donald J Trump deposed king of the year. Have you noticed Melania is holding DJT's hand more? She lost her sense of smell from having the Trump Virus and doesn't notice DJT's flatulence. I'm waiting on the executive order making Space Force Court the highest court of the land. Maybe if Trump appoints all the judges he can get a win. He would have to write in the order he could fire them if they didn't do as he wished. SCOTUS on the Texas lawsuit: It's a Hail Mary, there it is, it's in the air almost there, OMG Biden streaked across the field, he's got the case he's heading for his end zone he's on the 50, he's on the 40, he picked up a block by Barr, man oh man, Barr laid Trump out. Biden is racing to the end zone with no one in front of him. Biden scoooores. Biden spikes the case in the trash with 50 something others folks. There's the gun Biden wins 81m to Trump's 73m, wow what a finish. No flags on the play. Look at the red side of the stadium, 😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭
