Aaron: [00:00:00] [00:00:00]I mean, I have to spit my gum out now. Fucking off gum.

Tamu: [00:00:40] It's an hour. Are you going to make it like it's a hard ship. Oh, my Lord

Aaron: [00:00:50] Fresh piece of gum, just to spit it out. Just had to spit it out.

Tamu: [00:00:55] should be used to that

[00:01:00] Aaron: [00:01:00] I'm a lady. First of all,

Tamu: [00:01:05] Um, a lady in the street and a freak in the sheets

Aaron: [00:01:08] no, I was trying to use that same analogy. Look my daughter earlier

Tamu: [00:01:11] Why,

Aaron: [00:01:12] six year old, but not that one. No, not that one.

Let me tell you about the nineties, honey. No.

Tamu: [00:01:22] no,

Aaron: [00:01:23] I was using the analogy, not freaking sheets, but there was something else. I was trying to compare a person or different personnel. I can't remember what it was, but was just looking at me like, whatever bitch you crazy. 

Tamu: [00:01:37] All right. You ready?

Aaron: [00:01:38] girl. I'm ready. Are you ready?

Tamu: [00:01:40] I'm ready. I just need to remember the name of this podcast.

Aaron: [00:01:44] Yes. We got some feedback about that. It was one of the greater moments of last week.

Tamu: [00:01:49] Mallory cracked up. She was like, Oh my God, I am laughing so hard at Aaron right now. 

Aaron: [00:01:53] That was awesome. That was really awesome.

Tamu: [00:01:55] it was funny.

Aaron: [00:01:56] It's rare that I get to correct you. So it was lovely.

Tamu: [00:01:59] Oh, [00:02:00] shut up.

Aaron: [00:02:00] It's true.

Tamu: [00:02:01] Anyway. Welcome to When the Bill Comes Due  I'm Tamu we're so happy to be here today.

How are you on this anniversary of lockdown into Corona virus? Pandemic times. It's a year ago.

Aaron: [00:02:17] fucking over it. Honestly. I'm good actually. It feels like 10 years.  I heard some of the coverage earlier, but I'm just realizing now,  Oh fuck, it's been a year. I've been stuck in my home

Tamu: [00:02:29] To be fair. You've been stuck in your home for a lot longer than that. You worked from home.

Aaron: [00:02:33] I wasn't as stuck

Tamu: [00:02:35] Sure. Yeah. And movement

Aaron: [00:02:36] hot Door Dash guys were not an option, you know, they're not always hot, It's different, it's been a whole year of change. I know this is probably a really difficult probably will be a difficult question to answer, but what was the best change about this past year?

Tamu: [00:02:53] the best thing that happened this year is that my Minnesota mother is cancer-free remember, [00:03:00] this Friday, makes a year that she rang the bell at the hospital for her last chemo treatment. we're all super grateful for that. And then of course it's like, yay, we're all to become free and have our lives back again.

And then we went down and locked down. Very grateful for that. And her continued progress as a result in the past year. So that's been. A bright spot in all of this. Crappiness honestly, I think, becoming aware more and realizing that shit is super fucked up. And we grew up in fucked up system and it's time to make these real changes so that our future generations, your kids, my young cousins growing up don't have to suffer the same ills that we did, I think has been one of the most beneficial changes,  

Aaron: [00:03:46] I would say that's definitely one of the things, that, I would see it as a positive is just that my eyes are open and it seems like everybody's eyes are opened. Right. And we're no longer sweeping it under the rug. I shouldn't say everybody, but at least we're [00:04:00] all aware whether we choose to acknowledge it or not.

We're all aware.

Tamu: [00:04:04] are we 

Aaron: [00:04:05] Okay. On some subconscious level. Yes. We better be some of us. I mean, we can't win them. All right,

Tamu: [00:04:11] we gotta win most,

Aaron: [00:04:12] Speaking of awareness, I was watching The Wiz with my kids full  it was hard to get through because there's a lot of dialogue in the movie and lots of songs. So , Jerome was like, he keeps singing daddy, 

Tamu: [00:04:23] it's a musical kid

Aaron: [00:04:26] it's obviously not a musical kid.

I was just like, just wait honey.. It'll be awesome. Whoever,  edited that movie and wrote this screenplay, they were just these little undertones of racism.  There were taxis there and every time Dorothy would go hail a taxi, they would go busy or not available just these little pieces of the black family struggle, like in the beginning of the Wiz and they're all sitting down.

I don't even remember this part, in the beginning, they're sitting down for a holiday dinner or I'm not really sure what they're celebrating, but you see  a nice table set up and, a Turkey and just like very traditional things. And I started to look [00:05:00] at that to think is that our Thanksgiving?

Is that like a black person's Thanksgiving? You know? But I also thought too, like our traditions, are white traditions, they have the table sets, all of the Fixin's Fixin's   it's in everything the deep, deep, I don't know, Wells, I guess of racism are really in everything and we weren't listen.

I remember my mom taking me to that movie. part of me was like, why am I here?  It was interesting with this kind of scary, but  there were some real messages in there for black communities. We didn't finish.

Cause it was like over two hours. That was a long one. I digress to just say that,  I'm aware of the struggle, I think that's one of the great things about what has happened is an awareness and awakening to some degree the best part and answering my own question, the best part is really I feel like I'm so much closer to my family now, I know them so much better now.

I know when someone's going to have a bad moment or a day or a night. All that aside we [00:06:00] power through, we figure it out or problem solver. So I love that piece of it that we were together. That was a good part.

Tamu: [00:06:05] that's nice. 

this is also the anniversary, unfortunately, of Breonna Taylor's murder I was thinking about it today.  Nobody would know about this woman, if she hadn't gotten murdered by police officers last year, like she had just been EMT lady, there wouldn't be magazine covers with her face on it.

And  all of this stuff that has happened as a result of her being exalted into a figure for the struggle. it's just kind of sad. Way for someone to get notoriety. I feel like we should all be getting notoriety as people on this planet as humans, not just when you die. and we're gearing up here.

The trial George Floyd's murder is,  beginning. They are starting jury selections where they are selecting racists.

Aaron: [00:06:53] Yeah, it's been very interesting. I don't know how much a [00:07:00] normal trial, obviously this is not a normal trial. I mean, it is a normal trial to us, but it's not a normal trial.

Tamu: [00:07:06] It's going to be a normal trial at the end.. When this fool gets off,

Aaron: [00:07:09] Exactly. I dunno, just listening to some of those jurors and I don't know how I've never heard them sort of publicly, broadcast, their voices and such. I was listening to some of their testimony and I'm like, Hmm, interesting. Like, how do you find an unbiased jury and all of this, honestly,

Tamu: [00:07:30] I think they found one person who never watched the videos. I don't know if that was the person who believes that all lives matter. 

Aaron: [00:07:36] Very interesting process here. 

Tamu: [00:07:38] stay tuned, but apparently they got the army, the Navy, the air force, the Marines, the space force, um, FBI, CIA, DEA, ATF, you name it. Ready at the ready?

Aaron: [00:07:54] Is there any, any Intel, any threats I'm curious, you know,

[00:08:00] Tamu: [00:07:59] However,

Aaron: [00:08:00] January six.

Tamu: [00:08:01] just saying. Wow. Double standard much. Yes.

Aaron: [00:08:05] Yeah. So I know a couple of weeks ago you had  stepped away from the news and weren't exactly watching religiously. Is that still the case for you?

Tamu: [00:08:13] That is still the case. Yes, it is.

Aaron: [00:08:16] How does it feel?

Tamu: [00:08:16] It's different. I'm already pissed off with Joe Biden, so whatever. I mean he's clearly not. Actively trying to kill me or others like the other one did. So that's good, but the rest of it and all these people in fighting and them all, like, we just want to make sure we can all work together and status quo and blah, blah, blah.

This is all the same bullshit. And I'm just fucking tired of it. And somebody I'm not meaning it in a menacing way, but they just need to blow it up and start fresh. People  don't have the mindset that's progressive, who wants to keep everybody down, needs to get the fuck out of the way.

It's time to make a change.

Aaron: [00:08:53] To some degree, a lot of what has happened,  in the past year. And especially with [00:09:00] regard to the coronavirus, COVID-19, these news, media outlets they have made money off of this, you know, they've had great ratings.  I was thinking about this and thinking about how,  it was revealed this week about the whole Meghan Markle thing the business portion of the monarchy.

It's the same fucking thing here.  And I'm like, why are we even shocked that it happens there because the press loves you when they love you and they hate you and they don't. It's the same sort of system.

overall it is the same system that the capitalizes off of someone's successes in someone's failures. I would have hoped,  that the media  would have been more responsible, right? Would have woken up to say, you know what? We are responsible for reporting the news and we're responsible for getting the truth out there, 

Tamu: [00:09:48] we're responsible for getting this man elected, 

Aaron: [00:09:50] Exactly.  It's just a weird fickle business, no one's benefiting from it except for the people that report on it 

Tamu: [00:09:55] business.

Aaron: [00:09:56] America, in general, we have a way of lifting people up only to tear them [00:10:00] right back down.

Tamu: [00:10:01] Yup.

I don't know if you've heard that Stacey Dash is now trying to come back into the fold.

Aaron: [00:10:06] No, I almost blocked had a mind block moment when you said that.

Tamu: [00:10:13] You haven't seen her apology videos. So she has apologized and the stepping out of politics because she was being cast as the angry black woman. I'm the angry, conservative black woman. She's realized that, um, this was not the right way to go.

 Aaron: [00:10:34] in other news, how did she think this was going to go? 

Tamu: [00:10:38] I think that really, this is about,  her trying to make some cash, she's not in anybody's movies really anymore. A bitch got to eat,

Aaron: [00:10:47] I'm looking at this now. I hate it. I hate that everybody has these moments, like, and I hate that. America's so forgetful that they're fucking like, Oh, well she's black. She's not going to get forgiven. Obviously.

Tamu: [00:10:58] right? Yeah. I I must've been [00:11:00] reading something or watching something, someone was saying that, black people will forgive everybody except other black people. 

Aaron: [00:11:08] Oh my God. Here's their quote. I've lived my life being angry which is what I was on Fox news girl. I was angry, conservative black woman. And at that time in my life, it was who I was. I realized in 2016, that anger is unsustainable and it will destroy you.

I made a lot of mistakes because of that anger bitch, please, your agent wrote a nice speech for you. How, you've been black canceled.

Tamu: [00:11:42] yeah.

Aaron: [00:11:43] the

Tamu: [00:11:43] She's sorry, boo.

Aaron: [00:11:46] Have you heard about this basketball guy?

He's the livestream guy and he's got a hot mic and he's, these girls are kneeling,  there were black girls on the team and they were kneeling and he's, just saying really vile things on [00:12:00] air.

And then he comes back today or maybe it was yesterday to say that, you know, he has diabetes, which I wish him well. And that was the reason for his outbursts because he had a sugar shock or sugar rush, or I don't know what the hell it is. I was just like, what the fuck is this? You have heard about this, right?

Tamu: [00:12:20] I was seeing people on Twitter, posting things saying diabetes it's not an excuse for racism. Um, a bunch of like other ailments are not excuses for racism. They didn't tag anything. So I didn't understand what it was about. So now this makes.

Aaron: [00:12:37] I was watching it and I was just like, this is white fragility. This guy clearly, completely wrong, but it's like, I have diabetes instead of just saying, you know what? I fucked up,  I'm a racist fuck. And I'm sorry, I accept the consequences.

 It's never their fault. It's always something Sharon Osborne, right? Well, we'll get there. [00:13:00] Yes. There have been lessons in white fragility and this guy, especially, and many other people, but they're just like, you know, I didn't, I wouldn't have said anything like that.

Bitch. You were racist type one diabetes or not that ain't

Tamu: [00:13:16] the microphone.

Aaron: [00:13:18] do with it. You just got caught.

Tamu: [00:13:20] I need to look up the symptoms of diabetes if it also includes two races.

Aaron: [00:13:26] names. Right own your shit. 101.  I talked to my kids about this all the time. Just like, listen, just own it. Just own your shit. And then we can move on from that.

Tamu: [00:13:37] I was listening to a YouTuber called Funky Dineva and he was talking about, the Meghan Markle thing, but he was saying white people would rather add 800 tasks to something, rather than just say that they're racist. They'd rather go through all this other stuff. Just boiling it down and saying, here's what [00:14:00] it is.

So I get it.

Aaron: [00:14:02] What I've just noticed in watching? Well, frankly, just watching the interaction of Sharon Osborne this week was just like how fragile and it's like second nature. If even the thought of racism you're like, Oh my God, I'm a racist. I'm a racist.

Tamu: [00:14:18] we have all made racist comments since then. Racist.

Aaron: [00:14:21] Right. We've all said it. And so I'm just like, Sharon, are you going to sit up there and sorry, I'm  going there, but you know that even this guy,  sitting there and I say, you know, I'm not racist and, you know, blah, blah, blah. You've had those thoughts, those thoughts existed long before your sugar rush kicked in or sugar shock or whatever.

So like just own it and move on from there

Tamu: [00:14:43] there's another thing that is going on. The Senator, Ron Johnson in Wisconsin, Ron Johnson, Wisconsin it rhymes

Aaron: [00:14:51] a little bit, but I didn't hear.

Tamu: [00:14:53] this motherfucker went on air to say that he felt safe during the riots on 1/6 [00:15:00] because he knew that these were Patriots who love the country, but, if it was black lives matter, people storming the Capitol.

He would have felt unsafe. Words that came out and he said, I know I'm probably gonna get in trouble for saying this. If you, if you have to preface your statement with, I know I might be getting into trouble. Shut the fuck up, bro.  One last thing before we move on from talking about great moments in white America today, there's a great moment in black America. I sent you  the website for Adrian, Brandon, who has this beautiful, art series called Stolen and it's hand drawn pictures of.

black men and women and children who have been murdered at the hands of police violence, and what he does is he starts to color in their faces, but he sets a timer to their age and he colors them in for that amount of time. And then he stops. And so you see these people of different ages, like he has Breonna Taylor, he has Eric [00:16:00] Garner, he has George Floyd, others, it's just so powerful to see that expressed in that way. 

Aaron: [00:16:08] these are unfinished stories. These are unfinished lives, unfinished black stories. That's that was what impacted me most when I saw it. What a beautiful expression and really impactful.

Tamu: [00:16:18] absolutely. We'll link that in show notes, but definitely take a look at what this young man is doing, hopefully people see that and realize. Holy shit. These are lives. These are lives that are no longer being lived because they were in their house and someone fucking knocked on their door and decided to just spray the area for no reason, or because someone went to get a bag of Skittles or because someone reached into their back pocket or because someone was selling loose cigarettes, 

Aaron: [00:16:46] yup. Perhaps may allegedly happened?

Tamu: [00:16:52] because of the color of their skin.

All right. Speaking of the color of skin, let's get into the the bangers in the mash.

[00:17:00] Aaron: [00:16:59] Into it. I might as well just make my ping pong announcement. I'm ping pong. Done. 

Tamu: [00:17:04] We're, taking our, when the bill comes due and going across the pond, I don't even know what to say about this one. The bill comes to you because quite frankly, this is not a shock to me. maybe it's a shock to other people

Aaron: [00:17:15] fees, honey. Royalty fees.

Tamu: [00:17:18] or whatever that means. What happens when, people in the Royal family realize that there's racism. What happens when?

Aaron: [00:17:25] Oh, that's when the bill comes due for the crown.

Tamu: [00:17:27] For the crown. There you go.

Aaron: [00:17:29] That was a lot to unpack. I don't know what I was expecting to hear, we've had many conversations about the, I've said many times like, Oh my God, I love London. I love the UK. And rich says the same thing. You've said the same thing and there's racism everywhere, blah, blah, blah.

And my argument has always been, there's. Great diversity, cultural diversity. And what I love most about the UK is that you see people of color in prominent, movies and newscasters, probably not within their government, but you know, like I saw, [00:18:00] I saw black newscasters when I was there, you know, and like black models in the subway and it just felt different.

Anyway. I digress. I love London.  I can't say that UK because I only went to London. It was kind of shocking to hear it wasn't it was shocking to hear that this was actually happening. And I got to be very honest,  my perception of Megan Markle is,  she was an actress, she's a beautiful person and very outspoken, and it really felt like they were enveloping her and saying, yeah, you're a new Royal and you're a feminist and then turns out, many things are the problem with Megan.

But in particular, the fact that, she's a mixed race woman who has basically not Brent been protected at all. Poor thing. This is sad. It was sad for me,

Tamu: [00:18:46] has this changed your opinion of London, England in general?

Aaron: [00:18:50] I'd say yes and no. I would agree now, racism is everywhere and I don't know if it changes my opinion. That's the thing about that. It [00:19:00] certainly would give me pause if I were to move there or if someone were to offer me a job or whatever, it would certainly give me pause.

Only because I have children and it's not just me, I would be uplifting to another country. for me, that's very important to my kids to feel part of the community welcomed and not feel differently. So I don't know that I would move there. I don't know that I would, that's been a hard realization,

Tamu: [00:19:25] This is different from Friday.

Aaron: [00:19:28] If it was just me and Rich absolutely. I would pick up a move in a heartbeat because, I love living in different places and  for lack of a better term assimilating to the culture and feeling like you're part of that world, your new world every single time.

And I don't mean that in a racist way. I mean, just like the cultural sort of norms, social norms of living in a community I live in Maine, which I hate Dunkin donuts, but sometimes I go to Dunkin donuts, you know? So anyway, those are, those are the norms I'm talking about if you asked me with six [00:20:00] kids, a husband and two dogs, I would probably say no. But I'd still think about it. Seriously. What about you? you probably would not live there if I had to guess,  

Tamu: [00:20:09] no, but again, we're can we live right? There is relatively no place or a space for us as black people or darker skinned humans that we could, would be able to go to and feel a hundred percent. I will say that what impacted me more about what Megan had to say was when she was talking about feeling, that she wanted to do harm to herself as I've expressed here, I've had those feelings recently as well.

I was like, Oh my God, I totally get it. I understand when you feel like you don't have any other outlet, there's no other way out. This just seems like the best thing to do for everybody involved. to be done over done within, I can completely get that. And I also get the shame that she felt behind it as well, but very happy that she was able to find the support from her [00:21:00] husband and obviously her family and friends, and also Madea to Tyler 

Aaron: [00:21:08] Oh, I thought you were referring to the queen as Madea I was like, excuse me,

Tamu: [00:21:13] Tyler Perry, whisk them out. Remember

Anyway. I just thought that was the most powerful thing that she talked about and brought awareness to the fact that I can be sitting here in this place in Minneapolis, being in this space and feeling awful this way. And the Duchess of Sussex can sit in her palatial home and still have these feelings just shows you that mental illness is a real thing.

People need to be mindful of how you treat each other words, matter, words hurt, and  they can be devastating. 

Aaron: [00:21:44] I really appreciated her vocalizing and being truly honest about her mental health, because I think , in this society all over the world, we don't pay enough attention to mental health and 

Tamu: [00:21:55] for black people, we don't [00:22:00] talk about it at all.

Aaron: [00:22:01] Even her admission that she felt like she didn't want to live. I think it's really honest to say. For myself,  we all have those passing thoughts, whether we acknowledge them or not, or whether we've thought them they have been there, right.

People have had those moments where my life is horrible and Oh my God, I don't want to live anymore. Or it's as horrible as it's ever going to be. And I need to move on with my life or whatever, but I appreciate her, being really real about it and being honest, because it is exactly what you say that, people believe that she was a Prince, like a lot of that stuff she was saying, I was like, Oh bitch, this is the tea,  tea,  Oh my God.

Of course, obviously as a black woman or a woman of color there's an extra level of scrutiny upon her. She also has a stage. As well to be able to bring these issues to light, and help somebody. So I really appreciate her honesty about that situation Oh my God.

I don't know what I would've done in that [00:23:00] situation, but you're absolutely right. Like we, as black people, we don't say, Hey, I am not okay. Even, even right now, myself as a 40 something year old, I do have these moments with my husband or, we're just overwhelmed or crazy.

I was just thinking about this earlier. I was just like, you know what? I just need to say, I'm not okay right now. Or I just need a break and it's okay. Because there's part of us too, that, I think historically we just kind of shoulder through, right. We just move on. It is what it is.

Keep your head down and keep it moving. And I think inherently,  we take on those aspects. For myself, definitely having that awareness that, Hey, I don't feel well today.  I am sad or I'm, whatever it is, there's a certain stigma of crazy that is attached to it for black people.

I have friends really close friends and family, whoever is I've suggested,  go talk to a therapist, I found great success in the therapist and, the next inches, I'm not crazy or, you know, I don't need to shrink, you know, all of those things. [00:24:00] So I really hope we can change the tide there.

If we can sit and watch a man powerless on a TV screen, get killed by a police officer, right. If we can sit there and watch that, we can certainly talk about  how we are feeling. And how that affected us because you know, our emotions are real and things affect us differently.

And step one is talking about it. Good, bad or indifferent.

Tamu: [00:24:23] So and example of this just happened last night. I haven't spoken to my parents in almost a month, so they have no idea what's going on with me they decided to call me last night.

And the first thing I got was, well, I haven't talked to you. You can't use the phone. And I was like, you can dial my number too well, you should call your parents. I was like, you can call your daughter to see if she's okay. Well you're okay. And there it is. asked and answered, or as they say across the pond done and dusted

Aaron: [00:24:56] done and dusted. I like that.  Now you say [00:25:00] that and then thing. Okay. I say that to my kids all the time. Like even as babies will secure. Okay. You know? And um, and now I'm thinking, Oh my God, stop saying that.

Tamu: [00:25:09] you're not okay. And that's fine. It is okay to not be okay. So the next thing was back to me and all my stuff and what's going on, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. Still not okay. Still not. Okay.

Aaron: [00:25:21] Hmm.

Tamu: [00:25:22] But it doesn't matter. 

Aaron: [00:25:23] I think it's hard to, I don't know that we've ever talked about this on air, but like you and I have similar personalities in that I recognized in my twenties that  I was the friend that listens, right. I was a friend that was always there.  Listens and everybody's shit fell apart.

I love that role,  I recognize its value and, I love giving great advice. I don't know if I love giving great advice, but I'm here for it.  I'm here for that. And I'm totally okay with that. But as I grow older and, as life becomes more complicated in many ways, Especially this year, you want someone to be like, are you [00:26:00] okay?

You don't want to have to do the nurturing, as much anymore, you don't want to have to follow up to say, Hey, how are you? But the problem is that it's like everything. Like we set ourselves up for failure. And because we have given all of this into our support system.

Right. And we have said, absolutely, this is what I do a bitch come to me, lay on my bosom, tell me your woes will finish a bottle of beer. It'll all be fine. Then maybe there's two minutes of. Well, it's just happened to me, blah, blah, blah. Yeah. I don't want to say that to make anyone feel bad about it.

I have recognized my role in the relationship. and to some degree, for me, I almost fed off of it too. I get the energy from helping people, but now fast forward to my 40 something year old person, and I have no energy left to you.

Don't take care of any of that. relationships can be one sided sometimes. I have said many times I'm a selfish person. I am a selfish person. [00:27:00] I try not to be.  But I am a selfish person and I think people just love me.

Because I'm apparently giving them gifts back, whatever that means. But, I'm aware that I'm selfish and now I'm taking a lot from relationships versus contributing, but we are all contributing. I shouldn't say it like that. We all contribute at different times to a relationship.

Yes.

Tamu: [00:27:20] I would say some people do. That's not my experience with my. Family. the harder part is I don't have a significant other, I don't have the sounding board near to me. That's close to me that, you know what I mean? I'm not married. I,  not in a relationship. I'm a single person by myself.

If I can't lean on the people who birthed me and who known me the longest time, it's a pretty fucked up situation. This is who they are. And I understand that. but sometimes you just want your people to just say shit, what's going on. Are you okay?

What's up? No, we don't have to talk about anything. You need to tell me what's going on. Something's not right. [00:28:00] They can't even figure out when it's not. I can talk to you. You can talk to me. We know when stuff's not right. It doesn't work that way in my own family.

it's fine. The family that you make for yourself is the family that you keep. Right.

Aaron: [00:28:15] Hurts.

Tamu: [00:28:16] it sucks. It

Aaron: [00:28:18] Still hurts.

Tamu: [00:28:19] Yeah, it sucks. But that is what they are.

Aaron: [00:28:22] It all stems back. have no evidence other than my own experience. And I believe that it stems back to the oppressiveness of people, of color in this world. to some degree, I believe inherently, we are all just trying to get by. Right. Whatever that means.

Right. And emotions are. Secondary right. It's that is how we have survived for ever. And so that is ingrained in us. And so we don't have time to cry. We don't have time to feel. We don't have time for X, Y, and Z. That's really the stigma around mental health, [00:29:00] but just the stigma around actually giving a shit about someone other than I'm just trying to survive and make my money and blah, blah, blah, I think if people of color, it's not a luxury we can afford to give a shit about somebody else. You know, there's, that is not a luxury for us because there are many other things that play, keep your mouth shut. So you don't get fired. don't be too black.  Like these are the things that people are worried about and all wrapped up in that has mental health that fucks you up.

Tamu: [00:29:27] it does. And if you think about generations upon generations, upon generations, upon generations of it, that's why our goal. I think for the, both of us that it ends with us, right? Like where are the ones who are going to consciously say no more of this bullshit? I've done a lot better.

I think this time around of saying that I'm actually not okay. I'm proud of myself for that. I've been able to verbalize it. Granted not with the people in my home. They don't know that I'm not okay, but with everybody,

Aaron: [00:29:53] If someone knows you're not

Tamu: [00:29:55] I don't want them to worry.

Aaron: [00:29:56] Right, right.

Tamu: [00:29:57] They got other things to worry about.

Aaron: [00:29:59] So [00:30:00] this guy, his name is Major and he sings a song called Honest. I may have sent it to you. It's like a couple of years old, but it's a beautiful song. I forwarded to rich. I often forward music to him. It's like, just listen to it.

I'm a songwriter. He doesn't give a shit.   As a songwriter, I have never written a song about my husband, ever which is really odd because I've written about other relationships, but I haven't written about my own husband and we can dig into that another time.

 I told him if I could write  a song that was for him about me, this song was that, the song was really just about being honest and,  I'm gonna let you down,  I'm stuck on perfection just to beautiful.  Every single word was me and I was literally crying as I was listening to it.

Whereas, Rich is like, that's a great song, you know?  For me. That was a really emotional moment, but he made it very clear to me, he said, I really love the song. I really understood, you know, what you were saying and what you were trying to say. And to hear me to say, but my emotion or my tears were [00:31:00] my reaction to the song.

And so I was expecting him to have the same reaction, you know? I think the overall story with that song for me, it was that, I have been with my husband for, I don't know, 18 years. And I was listening to the song and I was just like does he, really know, like all of this emotional, well, that exists within me.

And like, how deep do you really know somebody  that takes a lifetime. I always have these moments of well, I'm different now, I'm different now. And there is insecurity there that, you know, the Aaron that Richard fell in love with is not the Aaron that's here today.

I know we all evolve in many ways,  it's just another level of insecurity and change and worry that you have, emotionally and mentally, too. Now I carry the burden of. Am I enough now? Or are you going to love me if I'm really who I am?

 Those are real black worries. Job-wise relationship wise, everything it compounds [00:32:00] mental health for a lot of people of color. Quite frankly, we're dealing with a fucking lot, you know?

Tamu: [00:32:05] I think that we're also finally understanding that we are. Dealing with a lot that it is a lot, and that it's an irrational amount that you have to deal with on a regular basis. And this is not a sustainable model.

Aaron: [00:32:21] I definitely think that the latter part of 2020, for me, it was that. Realization that, I can't do it all. Here at home, I hand the bills to my husband. I'm like, here, you can pay these, I normally like control that stuff. I think I'm also recognizing that,  there is a lot I need to make room to deal with.

The mental health is  what I certainly am understanding now is that, I need to make room. I need to make space to be able to acknowledge what I'm feeling, acknowledge those emotions, and move on from it. Cause I think that's part of it too. 

 We need to stop and say, Hey bitch, you are not okay. Or force people to talk about shit.  You're not okay. Call me [00:33:00] now.  We need that. I'm sorry. Got a little preachy today. Mental health.

Tamu: [00:33:03] that's important. So I don't know if you watch The Crown, have you watched The Crown?

Aaron: [00:33:08] I think we're in season three. My husband has left me.

Tamu: [00:33:10] You need to get it back in because. Megan was talking about what she was experiencing. That was what Diana's was experiencing. in season four. And I was like, Oh my God. So these people have been saying, The Crown is fictitious. The Crown is a dramatization, The Crown is true.

Okay. The crown is actual and factual. I was like, Oh my God, the exact same thing they did to Diana at the beginning where she was dating Charles. And she was basically secluded and couldn't talk to her friends or see anybody or do anything. And she was feeling depressed and was bingeing and purging and all that stuff.

That is the same shit.

Aaron: [00:33:50] Yup.  I'm thinking about the interview on how Megan was like, they don't get security, they don't get this. If  he is an heir to the throne wrong. He is wait. No, [00:34:00] because his, he has two boys now. That's right. 

Tamu: [00:34:03] But he was still getting security. It was her that wasn't going to get security in Archie that wasn't going to get security. Then they took his away at the end as well. When he was like, well, we steppin'down and we not doing all this shit. No Mo. And they were like, well, then we're taking your security away too.

Then we're going to tell everybody where you are. And that's when Madea came in and took him to his house in California.

Aaron: [00:34:25] Some crazy shit. That's a business right there. 

Tamu: [00:34:28] The Royal family is a corporation. I'm going to just say none of that was a surprise because if you watch The Crown, that has been going on for generations and I know that Harry wouldn't get into it too much, but he kind of alluded to the fact of a lot of that, pathology they have some serious issues that they don't get to address because they're Royals and they can't do therapy and all of that kind of stuff.

They have issues that they need to work on and props to him for saying it stops with me.

Aaron: [00:34:57] I feel like he was, he was protecting [00:35:00] his

Tamu: [00:35:00] Oh, absolutely.

Aaron: [00:35:01] in my opinion.

Tamu: [00:35:03] Well, what do you want them to do? Be like William, who said that this baby going to be a piccaninny any  can,

Aaron: [00:35:10] I know that would never happen, but if I were in his shoes, I probably would have been as protective too.

Tamu: [00:35:15] you know, Oprah knows, you know, they told Oprah on the side,

Aaron: [00:35:18] She said she was asking,

Tamu: [00:35:21] no, but you know, she really knows they rally tell her, tell

Aaron: [00:35:24] right. You know, Megan, my like bitch,

Tamu: [00:35:26] she like girl, you know exactly who it is.

Aaron: [00:35:28] know, is that ho over there? That ho and Oprah's like,  bitch that ho yes, bitch. That ho I'm kind of sad for them actually, because a normal person wouldn't have to do this.  I don't know Megan Markle at all, but based on the interview,  even if she did know who Harry was, you don't get involved with somebody.

Expecting the outcomes that they experienced, that she experienced, as his wife, as a part of that institution. And in some ways, I'm glad they're sort of [00:36:00] exposing this, underbelly, because really the, the monarchy is really nothing. Like they're really nothing. They're more just like a press piece.

Tamu: [00:36:07] I'm not riding with her on the whole, I haven't bothered to Google or look at anything that my husband would no, to me this is not what we do in the age of technology. Right. I fucking Google everybody.

Aaron: [00:36:21] we nosy too, we nosy.

Tamu: [00:36:23] And we already known that this fool had been running around the streets from young being stupid, doing all kinds of dumb shit. So you can't tell me that you don't know shit about

Aaron: [00:36:32] Right. True. That I agree with

Tamu: [00:36:35] I tend to watch like a lot of documentaries, about world war two. So that really gets you information about the Royals and their complicity in Nazi-ism some of them, et cetera, et cetera.

So I knew a little bit more, but I mean, come on. You're gonna tell me you don't know shit like Diana, like nothing, I'm not buying that a hundred percent. I'm not a hundred percent all in on that.

Aaron: [00:36:57] Right.

Tamu: [00:36:58] I'm sure that she [00:37:00] maybe thought, they learned maybe that was it. I'm going to give her that, like maybe they learned their lesson from what happened then.

Aaron: [00:37:06] I mean, I partly believe that I've asked myself that question too. If I dated someone that was famous or , as it were, would I Google them I would not like to know anything about them in that way. You know what I'm saying?

I just wouldn't Google them.

Tamu: [00:37:21] okay. You wouldn't Google them bitch, but I would've Googled them and been like, let me tell you something about this person, because I'm your friend and I'm going to tell you that.

Aaron: [00:37:28] Well, of course. Yeah, yeah. Yeah. I would expect my friends to do the tea work.

Tamu: [00:37:31] okay. You know what I mean? Like, nah,

Aaron: [00:37:33] I agree with that. Yeah.

Tamu: [00:37:34] we all need to know a little bit about something, about what we're getting into, because let me tell you something.

If there was the internet in 1996 and 1990, there was, but it wasn't this robust. I wouldn't be in half when I've been in half of the shits I was in, 

Aaron: [00:37:49] Very true. That's all of Miami for me.

Tamu: [00:37:52] That's really naive and it's really naive for a black person. I'm sorry. 

Aaron: [00:37:56] to me, Megan has lived in, I don't think [00:38:00] she's lived in white spaces, to me, she feels like she's proudly biracial, proudly a black woman, but proudly a white woman, whatever that is 

Tamu: [00:38:08] I still have my, my colorism issues in relation to a lot of what has happened here. I kind of was a little bit surprised that they had taken it this far, because I don't consider her to be black, black, you know what I

Aaron: [00:38:21] right, right,

Tamu: [00:38:23] be Italian for all, you know, you know what I'm saying?

Like

Aaron: [00:38:25] right.

Tamu: [00:38:26] she doesn't,

Aaron: [00:38:27] It's true.

Tamu: [00:38:27] I was honestly a little bit surprised in relation to  the extremes that they are going to with this Negress. 

Aaron: [00:38:34] Even full blood black.

Tamu: [00:38:36] These babies. Yes. Genetics can sometimes fuck with you, but I feel like it's okay, they're going to be pale and that's fine. I have my issues with it in terms of okay, damn, y'all really racist.

If you messin' with this chick barely black.

Aaron: [00:38:51] They messing with a halfrican.

Tamu: [00:38:57] Yes. Her mother is a black woman [00:39:00]

But still Megan has been able to

Aaron: [00:39:03] skirt. Those worlds.

Tamu: [00:39:04] Circumnavigate spaces as a result of the lack of melanin in her in comparison to say, we might not be able to have gotten that far.

Aaron: [00:39:14] Sure. We would have been stopped at the gate girl. We wouldn't even gotten to Harry's pants. I'm just saying

they were like, hold up Negro. Nope. Nope. Too. Dark

Tamu: [00:39:24] brakes. So more naivete and maybe,  it's a great matching of two very naive people, but Harry basically said, he didn't believe that there was racism and bias and in England,

Aaron: [00:39:38] shut up.

Tamu: [00:39:39] Until he was with Megan and realized, Oh, by jove we've got racism in our country that colonized a bunch of other black countries and made slavery happen. Give me a fucking break, man.

Aaron: [00:39:56] the other thing about Harry's interview or Harry's piece of the interview is [00:40:00] I'm not convinced there's a lot in between those two ears, you know,

Tamu: [00:40:04] I'm going to keep referring to The Crown as my Wikipedia. They aren't the smartest  group of individuals they're purposefully

Aaron: [00:40:14] taking the right.

Tamu: [00:40:15] to stay stupid. But I think in relation to most of his family, I feel like he's. He's smarter he's more aware of things, obviously. He has a lot of his mom and him more.

So I want to say then unfortunately William, because he's, you know, bred to be the crown, so he didn't get to do all of that thinking for himself stuff.

Aaron: [00:40:36] rubbish. I also have a note here about, , Sharon Osborne. What the fuck was that?

Tamu: [00:40:42] we need to talk about the Piers Morgan piece of it first. So,

Aaron: [00:40:45] So Piers, Sharon. Yes.

Tamu: [00:40:48] you know now, because it's been on the internet that apparently he had a date with Megan, and this is what this is all stemming from, is that the one time that they met, she just [00:41:00] was like a fan of his and they met and they had a drink or whatever it was.

And she left and ended up meeting Harry allegedly the same night or whatever. so he's basically, I don't want to use the term butt hurt, butt hurt as a result of that, his, he seemed to be like super into her, I guess, the way he describes it. And, she was like, well, it was nice meeting you.

Bye.

Aaron: [00:41:23] Uh huh.

Tamu: [00:41:24] since then it's been, she's a piece of shit.

Aaron: [00:41:27] Yup. I've mentioned before, I traveled to London a couple of years ago, ping pong. and I was watching ITV good morning London or whatever the fuck it is. Did you watch that when you were there? Was that like your

Tamu: [00:41:40] morning, Britain. No, I watched BBC.

Aaron: [00:41:42] Oh, see, I was ITV kind of guy and that's where naked and afraid is. Our naked attraction is on ITV.

Tamu: [00:41:48] Yeah. I mean, I watched ITV for all the rest of it, but like in the morning time, if I was up there early, I was catching the BBC news.

Aaron: [00:41:56] I like the BBC too. Actually I watch the BBC anyway. 

Good morning [00:42:00] Britain. And it was the first morning I had been there and just ragging on her, like completely like every single morning, like there was always a comment and I just thought, Oh my God, like, he's really, really angry with her. that little tea about the dinner drink and blah, blah, blah. I read that too. And I was like, ah, this makes sense. Now

Tamu: [00:42:21] it makes so much sense now.

Aaron: [00:42:23] She went for the bigger Dick and he's all pissed off about it. I got it.

Tamu: [00:42:26] Yeah. Yeah, 

Aaron: [00:42:27] did you watch the, exchange and then the walk-off that happened?

Tamu: [00:42:31] I did I did. I

Aaron: [00:42:33] Who is the guy? Who's the person of color? I don't know what he is. Yes,

Tamu: [00:42:39] newscaster

Aaron: [00:42:40] no one famous though. Right? I don't

Tamu: [00:42:42] I mean, there, I'm sure he is.

Aaron: [00:42:45] Yeah. Cause he was very articulate with his points about, you know,

Tamu: [00:42:48] He came out, swinging in the most respectful and nice way

Aaron: [00:42:53] very

Tamu: [00:42:53] that man lost his fucking mind and ran off into tizzy. therapy [00:43:00] bra, we talk about mental illness today. Maybe you need to go therapy for this infatuation.

Aaron: [00:43:06] it that's the truth right there,  

Tamu: [00:43:08] he was also making sexist comments about his. Co hosts on that show, like we know it's spring because so-and-so has on a short skirt today kind of stuff. Like he's just a fucking Dick, 

Aaron: [00:43:21] I'm like good fucking riddance what took you so long to get off that show? When he was on CNN he's just such a shock interviewer. I remember mariah Carey was I think, in London or something overnight. And he was interviewing her and I think it was the same day that the Parkland students shooting happened.

And like, he literally goes on air to tell her this. And she was just like disturbed by the information. Like he lives for that stuff.

Tamu: [00:43:49] he's just a Dick. Good. riddance but he and Sharon Osborne are, I guess the best of friends. I don't know what possessed her to go [00:44:00] AWF on TV and cry, white tears and tell a black woman that she has no right to cry. Right. Be upset, but she could be upset.

Props to Sheryl, 

Aaron: [00:44:09] Oh my God. I was like, Sheryl, jump up, pull your earrings off.

Tamu: [00:44:14] take the wig off girl and go handle your biz. But she was like, I'm talking to you as a friend, as my friend, Sharon, who I know hasn't said or done anything untoward until now.

Aaron: [00:44:27] I talked about it earlier. This is white fragility. This is it. I'll be very, very honest. I've heard of white fragility. but obviously didn't really pay attention to it until probably last year, like most of the world, and it wasn't clear to me what it was, but every single Karen video you watch or Sharon Osbourne, or, Oh my God.

Any the diabetes coach or the live stream, dude [00:45:00] that is white fragility instead of owning your shit to say, you know what? My friends, the fucking asshole, I know that it wasn't even about her. That's the whole thing. It wasn't even about her. It was about him and she took it on as now. I'm a racist and I'm like, bitch, maybe you are.

her. 

Tamu: [00:45:21] you are, you just said, as you were so clearly we got some things to talk about.

Aaron: [00:45:25] And then like, they went to commercial and she was still going off. I want to talk about that. I was like, Oh my, she has really gone off the deep end. But again, this is what happened. This is the reaction. This is the, I call it the victim mentality. Right. Instead of trying to, dig into that.

What, what is that about?  Let's understand. It turns into this moment of you've hurt me, or I was hurt, , XYZ, or this is why X, Y, Z happened instead of, you know what? I fucking did it at the time. I was pissed as, fuck. Fuck you. Fuck him. I'm sorry. Let's move on. Okay.

Tamu: [00:45:59] or [00:46:00] even,  he's my friend, I talked to him. He said he wasn't, it wasn't about race, which it probably is not for Piers it's probably just, he's a misogynistic Dick.

Aaron: [00:46:10] a little bit racist. I'll be honest.

Tamu: [00:46:12] you know sure. But you know, more so the misogyny part, right?

out of line and maybe it's time for her to take a little bit of a break from her show.

Wow.

Aaron: [00:46:23] It was a completely ignorant response. I actually like watching The Talk although I hadn't watched it for awhile and there was some people there. I was like, who the fuck is this? I didn't  know who that woman was. That was sitting next to Sharon. I didn't know who that was.

Do you know who that was?

Tamu: [00:46:35] I don't know, but I know she was another black lady who might've had to answer questions 

Aaron: [00:46:39] she was trying to chime in too. That was an awkward, awkward, awkward, awkward. You got to answer those questions. That's the problem right there. You got to deal with that.

Tamu: [00:46:49] We have to realize that we have a problem. Sharon Karen, same, same

Aaron: [00:46:53] Love you bitch. I don't worry about him,

Tamu: [00:46:55] called for just unnecessary.

Aaron: [00:46:58] He's a [00:47:00] horrible human being in my personal opinion. He wants nothing more than the world to see someone hurting and that's not okay because he would never want someone to do that to him.

And someone has, obviously, which is the reason he is that way. when all this sort of. Came down black lives matter, everything. I was kind of like, this is watershed, people will be able to have opinions and I'm kind of like, you know what?

Pull those assholes off the air. why are we giving them space? We just waste space on these negative people. It's almost like Congress, we're going to have to clean out all these people of media too.

It's a business. It's a lucrative business. I wish I could cash in on some of them, but whatever.

Tamu: [00:47:40] Then, of course William said that the racist family is not racist. Racist. Say what?

Aaron: [00:47:45] can we just clarify, first of all, my fucking phone was blowing up on Friday or whenever the fuck it was Thursday, William has made a statement bitch. He didn't make no statement. He literally like turned around the side of his face and was like, my family is not [00:48:00] racist. That ain't a statement.

Tamu: [00:48:01] No, it's not.

Aaron: [00:48:02] I was like, Oh my God.

they have not spoken out maybe through their one statement, but no, that doesn't clean this up. They got some shit to clean up.

Tamu: [00:48:12] you probably didn't see it today, but Kate Middleton went to somebody's vigil.

she just went to lay flowers at this, I guess this woman was killed by police.

Aaron: [00:48:22] Yep.

Tamu: [00:48:22] she went to pay her respects at whatever the vigil was, but, you know, it's COVID times and Missy didn't have a mask. on Somebody happened to catch her there.

Aaron: [00:48:32] It's very Trump-like to their sort of reaction to all of this, like to move on as if everything is normal and put Kate out there, no, it's okay to fall apart and let the world see you fucking be real and try and figure this out.

Tamu: [00:48:48] Remember. This is, , a dynasty the years and years and years and years and years of, their mental illness and other issues that they have. So it's not going to change overnight. I [00:49:00] think that if they were really pressed about it and they actually did care about Harry and his wife, they would have come out.

As soon as that interview was over and say, this is not going to stand with us. They're going to get their protection. We're going to make that little baby, a Prince and his little sister to go be a princess. Don't matter what shade of Brown they are, 

Aaron: [00:49:23] I think Megan even said this, it. Isn't about the titles, but it is to some degree because  now it's a problem because a black baby, 

Tamu: [00:49:33] they wanted her to keep acting like they want her to be in suits she's a Royal right. That's supposed to not 

Aaron: [00:49:40] Well she black? It's different now. It's different.

Tamu: [00:49:44] That is, I guess she must also realize she's blacked now too. Sorry.

Aaron: [00:49:48] I was going to say that too. I started , watching Suits because of Meghan Markle I watched one episode and I was like, Oh my God, I'm hooked on this.

 Sexy, legal dramas I love that shit. So [00:50:00] I was watching it. And the whole time I was watching Meghan, the first episodes, like she was really fair skinned  and it was almost like, bitch, what are you? What are you bitch? And then it probably wasn't until season two ending or maybe three beginning that they started to introduce a character as her father who was a judge.

And then she started to have statements about,  being an African-American or whatever. I would probably assume that,  it's probably been challenging for her too, because people are like, what are you?

We don't know what to do with you, you know? Then they put this ambiguous looking woman into Suits and, I'm sure everyone's like, Oh, she's gorgeous. She's beautiful. She's beautiful. But what is she? And I think that was, you know, USA's intention, right?

 To bring this ambiguous, sexy character to the screen. That is white acting, quite frankly, she's white acting,  non-threatening and  people won't. hem and haw cause she's kissing a white boy,  all of these things, I'm sure it played [00:51:00] into that role, it's much like Mariah Carey I knew Mariah Carey was mixed, but Mariah Carey identifies herself as a black woman, hasn't always, and we're now starting to hear it from not just her, but other people as well, Meghan Markle, I would say too, she's always described herself as a woman of color,  but never claiming whatever that is, you know?

 Same problem. Mariah Carey definitely didn't claim a woman of color, but she's always claimed her biracial heritage, but never really her blackness in my opinion. I digress. I said it again. 

Tamu: [00:51:31] You did. You got to start keeping a tally and have a bingo?

Aaron: [00:51:34] I digress brought to you by when the bill comes due bitch, you got late fees. Pay that bill and come through. When the bill comes due I'm practicing, do you like it?

Tamu: [00:51:45] Yeah, it's

Aaron: [00:51:46] Promotional consideration of when the bill comes due. By when the bill comes due bitch, you got late fees.

Emotions have late fees too. When the bill comes due visit us whenthe billcomesdue.com, [00:52:00] that's whenthebillcomesdue.com. Whenthe billcomesdue.com

Tamu: [00:52:16] Okay, should we wrap this up?

Aaron: [00:52:19] probably. Yeah, probably,

Tamu: [00:52:20] Last thoughts here. on Meghan and Harry, and Archie

Aaron: [00:52:24] I'm really happy for them. hope that they can live some sort of a private life. if they're truly,  being outspoken and want things to change within their own home country, but around the world, I hope they are more outspoken about issues of race.

I wish them well. I really do. Probably hard to make that decision  to come out in that way, especially when there's family involved, , I couldn't even imagine,

Tamu: [00:52:47] Kudos to Harry for,  breaking cycles. 

Aaron: [00:52:50] Very nice.

Tamu: [00:52:51] All right, let's take a break and come back with our throwback   [00:53:00] 

we're back with our throwback for today, I guess we're calling 2006 back in the back back now.

Aaron: [00:53:11] it's a throwback.

Tamu: [00:53:12] Okay. It is.

Aaron: [00:53:13] Stay by Sugarland.

You should just say Jennifer Nettles. Oh my God. This song was written by Brian McKnight.

Tamu: [00:53:21] that's probably where you get your RNB

Aaron: [00:53:23] Anyway, this is a really, really sad song. I think you guys know that I love depressing love songs. If you feel like shit, turn on the saddest song, you know, and it makes me happy.

 I get a lot of my musical recommendations from the Grammy nominations. And I will just simply say that the Grammys, they're sellouts, they don't, you know, it's, it's a chart Buster. Now I would say back when this song was released, there was some semblance of the actually gave a shit about actual music, but it's probably gone a long time ago anyway.

 I'd never heard [00:54:00] of, Sugarland. Jennifer Nettles, who's the lead singer of Sugarland sang this song. In fact, before she sang this song, she came on and they won a Grammy for, I think it was best song, something country song I'm sure.  She just had this Southern accent. She's like, I won't thank my mama.

I was like, Oh, that's nice. So this bitch gets up to sing and I was hooked. I was hooked to her voice. She is just a beautiful soulful hauntingly depressing voice. But the song itself is just  why don't you stay I'm down on my knees. I'm so tired of being lonely.

Don't I give you what you need when she calls you will go. There is one thing you should know. We don't have to live this way. Why don't you stay? I love songs like that. She was a secret love.

 She was kind of that bedroom thought ho , she didn't get the dick on the regular. I love the song because it's depressing and it's a beautiful song and I'm guessing you have no connection to the song at all.

Tamu: [00:54:59] I don't, [00:55:00] I just heard it maybe an hour and a half ago for the first time. But what I did recognize is that fuck boys are universal.

Aaron: [00:55:08] Fuck. Boys are universal. That is absolutely true. Oh my God. This is a country fuck boy song

Tamu: [00:55:16] Yes, it is.

Aaron: [00:55:18] written by a man, by the way. 

Tamu: [00:55:19] Let's be real. this is what every man's fucking wet dreams are, right?  Oh, I got two women fighting over me and everybody wants my Dick, whatever.

Aaron: [00:55:29] bitch, whatever. It ain't that serious.

Tamu: [00:55:31] the video it's just her and the Sugarland man playing and she's crying and being very emotional, begging this dumb ass man to stay which she does not need all I'm doing in the video. And also in the song is saying, no, no, no, 

Aaron: [00:55:47] Any final thoughts on this beautiful, beautiful song?

Tamu: [00:55:52] no. Now we know a black man wrote it

Aaron: [00:55:54] I'm raising my fist right now. Brian Kelly McKnight. I love you. I've loved you since One [00:56:00] Last Cry.  

Tamu: [00:56:00] Happy daylight savings. Day time people spring ahead.

Tamu: [00:57:58] Get your vaccine [00:58:00] in your state at your designated time. Don't be going to other people's States and stealing they vaccines.

Tamu: [00:58:22] You're not wrong.

Aaron: [00:58:23] Shit. I'm sorry, but goddamn. Just steal vaccines now and do all this extra extravagant bootleg, like going into the movie theater, filming the movie and then trying to sell it online.

This is not that type of party. Wait,

Tamu: [00:58:36] And on that note, we will bid you.
