Rickey and the team discussed the horrific incidents took place in which claimed the life of three people and left several injured.

They spoke about how the media isn’t portraying these people as thugs or terrorist and how if this was a Black group or organization that’s how the picture would be painted.

Rickey talked about how one pastor said, “If your pastor is not addressing the sin of racism you need to find another church because silence is dangerous.

James Alex Fields Jr, the man accused of running over Heather Heyer alleges that at the time of this incident he was confused.

Fields picture isn’t shown on the news as much as it should and Rickey said, “If this was a Black man, he would have been charged and his face would be plastered all over television.”

Rickey even talked about the many times since the election he has had to check some White people about things they’ve said or done while he was around.
