Well, I got you muted here so they can't hear you.
Oh, let me pause this.
Oh, I just spoke over top.
You guys can hear me now.
You guys can hear me now, Everybody, everybody, that's watching you guys get hit me now.
What's popping with you guys tonight? We got a lot to talk about.
We got a lot and talk about, and we're gonna get to James Dolan.
But we're gonna keep that quick because I don't want the focus to be taken away from what really matters.
We're gonna talk about James Dolan because it has to do with the New York Knicks.
And James Dolan is the reason that will bring it up.
Uh, is the reason that I'm saying we got to stay focused, right? Because I don't want the media or anybody else to strategically divert us from the real issues.
I want you guys to pay attention to what I'm saying, and I got in the chat, I got care that I got GMO, but I say we got savvy here.
We're gonna talk about everything that's going on with this whole James Dolan situation.
He did release another internal statement.
We're gonna look at read both of those statements.
We get these guys over here, man, we could talk about it, get you guys just say what's up first, you know, there we go ahead and get with it.
Fellas was popping there while doing well.
You know, physically, I feel good looking at everything that's going on in the world or ****ed off your server.
Me, You look, you see your way here? We a lot of very invigorated and exhausted, you know, You definitely, you know, tired, angry, ****ed off.
We're just trying to find the answer, so, you know, But like like I said, we here we have You have a platform to talk about it. So we blessed.
Yeah, and And we got to do more to talk about it.
But we'll talk about that later because we're gonna talk about you know what happens next.
What do we do next? We're gonna talk about James Dolan and some of the things happening we're gonna talk about.
What do we do next, though? Because it's not good enough.
It's not good enough to just talk about it on platforms like this.
It's good, but It's not good enough.
It's good to making Avatar black on your all of your social media accounts.
I'm not exactly sure what it's going to amount to What the end result was gonna be of that whole movement for today.
Not exactly sure what that's going amount to.
But if you did it, you did it cool.
But what you gonna do afterwards? What you gonna do next? What you gonna do when your social media post is gone in the next couple of days? What you gonna do it in? That's what I want to know.
That's what that really want to talk about tonight.
You know, I mean, that's what I really want to get to.
But before we do, let's go ahead and talk about the story and what happened over there over the last couple of days with James Dolan.
All right? Because James Dolan, I don't know who's got it.
Looks like someone got a phone call coming in.
So James Dolan put out a statement to his.
I guess the statement was to his staff, right to the staff at Madison Square Garden, and apparently somebody leaked the email that James Dolan put out, um, to the media.
I don't know who's got somebody.
Somebody got somebody? Somebody got hugging that somebody Somebody texting May.
I'm sorry trying, Teoh, but you know everything.
That's May also I you know what hit him back.
I got people listening to me right now.
I need, you know, really? Absolutely.
No, This is not your wife.
If it's your wife, you better answer the phone.
Hey, just sell Dannenberg.
You better answer the phone because you already know, You know, maybe nobody? No.
But anyway, James Dolan sent a message to the MSG staff because apparently there were people who were upset that he did Not that he did not, uh, put out a statement or MSG.
And the Knicks didn't put out a statement.
This is what he said.
You said we know that some of you and have axed about whether our company is going to make a public statement about the killing of George Floyd by Minneapolis by Minneapolis Officer.
I want you to know I realized the importance of this issue.
Therefore, I want you to understand our internal position.
This is a term Gillet.
This is a turbulent time in our country.
The Corona virus and civil unrest have taken their toll on our way of life.
We at Madison Square Garden stand by our values of a respectful and peaceful work.
Please, we always will.
As companies in the business of sports and entertainment.
However, we are not more qualified than anyone else to offer our opinion on social matters.
What's important is how we operate.
Companies are committed to upholding our values, which include creating a respectful workplace for all.
And that will never change what we say to each other matters how we treat each other matters, and that's what will get us through this difficult time.
And of course, there was a media firestorm not exactly based on what James Dolan said, but what he didn't say.
But I want to say to you, I want to say this to you, and you all probably seen the video that I put out earlier.
James Dolan is not the voice of black people in America.
Let's not make that mistake.
Let's not make that mistake it all.
James Dolan is the owner of the New York Knicks, and that's it.
I don't need him to speak for me.
We don't need him to speak for black people as I'm gonna ask you this.
When have you ever heard off the New York Knicks speak about social issues? Because I don't recall, I don't recall.
They are plenty off corporations out there speaking about giving this statement.
Don't let him fool you because many of those corporations are giving their statement in support off George Floyd's family and in protest of police brutality to make sure that they're on the right side.
Some of them may actually put their money where their mouth is.
Most of them will nights.
Most of, um, when this thing is passed will go all about their daily business and forget all about that.
This happened and will not continue to fight police brutality.
I would much rather have somebody because statements without activity mean nothing.
I would much rather have somebody do something and not make a statement.
Bottom line, you know you can not like James Dolan.
But let's not put stuff on him.
I don't think that's right.
And that's not distract or the tour will take any U turns away from the real issues that are at hand.
And James Dolan is not the issue.
I can guarantee you I can guarantee you that George Floyd's family do not.
They do not care that James only made a statement or not deep.
Don't give a ****.
Yeah, I just don't get it.
I don't understand it.
There's so many bigger issues at hand, so many bigger issues at hand.
And whether or not James Dolan made a statement, it's too many bigger, too many issues at hand.
So, like I said in my video, I challenge you instead of making a Social Media post or to back up or follow up your social media post, do something active.
Go find a town hall meeting to participate in and let your voice be heard.
Ask about certain legislation in your town and your neighborhood.
What is your never gonna hold going to do to prevent police brutality? Go fight for that.
Go find a young man to mentor young black man, a mentor, if you can and talk with him about the oppressive state of the United States of America and Lightning head.
Don't worry about James Dolan in the Knicks.
No spending energy there because the energy that we spend, the energy that I'm spending right now and that we are all spending right now we're worried about James Dolan.
And at the New York Knicks.
Made a statement that you like is energy.
Then I'm taking away from the actual calls.
The actual reason you feel me actual reason.
Don't be distracted.
Gonna talk about this.
But we're gonna follow this up with what's next.
Because not enough to just talk about this.
What's next? What are you going to do? What am I gonna do? How are we going to make this last? Everybody's got energy.
Everybody's aware right now.
How we gonna make sure that we stay aware? We keep the energy, we keep it going.
We keep it moving, we stay active.
What are you gonna do? What you gonna do? That's what we're gonna talk about tonight.
That's what we're gonna talk about now. James, don't.
What would another statement and listen, I'm not gonna lie to you.
He followed up with this statement because he caught some heat and still, though, and I'm going to give him credit for this.
I'm going to give him credit for this.
This is an email that was leaked from Madison Square Garden.
Not that he took and put this out to the public.
This is an email that was leaked.
So even though he knew that he caught media backlash, it didn't put anything out to the media.
He put it out to his staff and his staff leaked it because I saw the actual email you probably did to his staff, Leaked said yesterday.
I made a sincere attempt to provide my perspective on a very difficult issue, one that has no easy answers.
I know how important this topic is too many, and I do not want to hear any confused.
I do not want there to be any confusion about where I as an individual or we as a company stand.
So let me be clear.
We vehemently condemn and reject racism against anyone, period.
It is against every value that we hold dear.
My point yesterday was about actions and the importance of living your values at Madison Square Garden.
We have worked hard to build an environment of inclusion and mutual respect, and those are the values that we try to live every day.
Racism is born of ignorance, and it's up to each of us to understand that the person working beside you is your equal without regard to color or any of the other, any of the other qualities that make us diverse and any injustice toe one person is an injustice.
This is how we at MSG, fight racism.
We start with ourselves, and through our actions, we define who we are.
That is how we could be an example to the wider world.
That was the point of my message yesterday.
I am proud of the environment you have created here.
I know that this is a difficult time and that we will always need to communicate with one another and hard on hard issues.
I will continue to do as much as I can to help make our community even better.
I know you will also, that's a statement that he put out today to his staff, not to the public.
Let me talk to these guys here, man.
Fellas working for me.
Okay, let me let me go first real quick.
I just want to ask a question.
Yeah, employees did that.
They could really get out.
Hey, hear me, Kevin.
Okay, if an employee leaked that out, should that and play be under, um, should that person **** play.
You have disciplinary action if you if you're the, uh, beauty manager or whatever, should that person have? Ah, some displaying action, you know? Probably.
Okay, you know, problems.
So But I will say this given this situation in the frustration, whatever is going on inside images of this frustration in internal discussions and debate, they may say, you know what they may say? Well, go light on you this time because off whatever.
I don't know, but yes, there probably should be.
Okay, here's my thing.
And I actually I'm 100 affinity times of many.
Agree with what you're saying.
Um, what you said today made sense.
What? Um, Dolan said to to the employees made sense.
I think the media and fans see the other owners Allah, Mark Cuban, marching with everybody and expect James Dolan to do the same thing.
And what people have got to get is that everybody is different.
Everybody's gonna follow what you know what other owners are doing.
And for me until until James Dolan turns out to be like Donald Sterling or March shot when she owned the Reds.
I don't want nothing.
That's all I got to say about Listen, hey, don't.
Which James Dolan? It's not that guy.
You may not like him.
People don't like him because he's friends with Donald Trump.
No, his political is political affiliations.
I mean, that's not my business, right? That's just political affiliations.
I'm not asking James Dolan to come to my community and give to my community, although he does, although he goes, and not just because he hires black executives.
I see the Post on Twitter the other day because I did a response in our SportsCastr about Baron Davis, you know, saying his stuff about being the coach of the Knicks, right? And the guy on Twitter Baron Davis was responding to.
He said the Knicks and the MBA need to stop hiring these dinosaurs, referring to Tom Thibodeau and hire young black coaches.
I was like Wait a minute.
Obviously, you're not following what has really happened with the New York Knicks, Because three of the last four coaches for the New York Knicks have been black men.
Mike Woodson, official David Fizdale in between there, you had Jeff Warner said, And I'm not talking about the intermittent coaches.
Three of the last four.
And I'm like, dude, like, are you paying attention? And I'm not saying this to reap crazy praises on James Dolan, right? Because, you know, that's is who we decided to hire.
It wasn't afraid to hire.
All in all, black fun office, though The first was in a fight.
He wasn't afraid to do that.
The first to do it anyway, So we'll club case close and, you know, um, Cassie, someone on James.
Yeah, yeah, yeah.
Oh, I'm glad that you guys are okay.
And so I just want is is discussing that, in my opinion, right? We talk about relax, self original stuff, right? Everything's a growing country.
I just find it disgusting that you have institutions, enterprises like ESPN going to use this as a way to try to get him, because I think there's a concerted effort to get him out.
But like I said, you want to get him out and buy him out.
That's how it works in capitalism.
When we get about by him up, you don't sit there.
You don't put it on lies in his name.
You don't wanna pay Missouri's cause.
You know, say what you want about James.
Don't. First of all, I agree with Kevin.
Whoever leaked that memo needs to be fired because that's against company policy and the thing I find.
So Distrust discusses that when James Dolan was funding money for people during the cold in 19 virus by pandemic, the height of it, I don't use PM praising him.
I don't hear anyone else praise in mind you.
You got guys like I believe I don't want to say, Gee, I know you guys are designed I think Zion, I think something is six years of some like that.
We're paying money out of their pocket for covert workers while their owners were doing nothing.
While you have the Lakers trying to steal money from the small business loan program for their own and surprise when he didn't eat the money but Yeah, And you had a lot of people in N b A.
I could trace back.
Like I said to Craig Hodges and Mark More Derive where those guys got black bow out of the out of the industry and no one came to the to the restaurant.
No one stood up for them.
One of best three point plays in a game.
My mood up to Rafe.
If you follow his career.
He was stuff curt before stuff.
The guy should just opposite games little bit different back there.
And yet I don't hear no one talking about this in the n b A. They have bylaws.
I say You cannot kneel for the anthem.
You have to stand up and salute.
And yet, out of all these things that happened envy when it comes to black people, all these small, little, so called micro aggressions and injustices of people told, Oh, you don't even talk about the Donald Still me episode were these guys for years how recent this guy waas from its business practices to him, bringing in women to the to the locker room.
Trina plays like slaves where they would basically make it.
And he's shown women around people I get.
He's my God, these my guys.
Would that make it? No one talked about the MBA.
And yet when it comes to James, don't.
Now, look, if you want to talk about James, don't being a terrible owner, I will watch every special and laugh with you.
I will watch Very special being.
But you cross the line when you're trying to paint.
That man has a racist.
First of all, he ain't black and a part of our community like that to meet his entertainment.
I paying for the game.
He gives me turbines, entertainment and a terrible diseases.
But, you know, I came for, so I pay for it.
So that's what I get other than that to me, he has nothing else to give three.
I don't I'm not concerned.
His committee like that in terms of social stuff, as I was nine pigeon in my life and he should be concerned me like that.
But for the simple fact that he went out of his way to do the Kobe 19 right, He went out his way and Obviously that is not a black and may pay for the doctor, the David Stern off funeral.
I don't hear a peep out of anyone.
I don't hear the so called black and media or not, but I have somebody.
So hold sports writers, come out and say, You know what? James does a good do.
James, don't do some good for the people I know.
But you say yes and get mad just because he didn't say something.
And again, there's a great video if you guys watch your anything treat is a sports channel.
Is not anything great to SportsCenter? Call urinating, treat that great a parody video off cos with Pandu and do absolutely nothing.
It's like this is like a ad for Oh yeah, Bobo Bobo And they just panned it.
That's why these people are doing their candor.
Because what all the races stuff was really happen around him now these guys and sacrifice that money to so called stop racism notice.
You guys gonna stop playing games on these guys Gonna catch again? Remember the Clippers game in the playoffs and it could have cancelled it.
And boycott of Donald Sterling the end the pressure was present play because millions of dollars were at ST.
So what do you want to get had a James? They're trying to paint it as a rate, uh, the Isiah Thomas thing that he does not to treat women, which I mean the drug seven might have some validation.
Tried came as that.
Then they had these guys, like Oakley and Spike, defeat themselves by looking like privilege idiots by complain about Oh, I'm I'm in a slave do because I'm sitting front row whether help trials over the city and Spike Lee, who want to get into a special entrance when he was told months in advance not to do that.
You have These people are coming out.
So all I want to say is people that and this is what goes the whole protesters critically think.
And Snead, who was from the battery in your back to think a certain way.
It's just just critically.
JSA has nothing toe hold me, bro.
And James alone is not the issue.
You have a lot of other enterprise.
It could be a lot more culpable for a lot of bad image may be shown black people, for instance, the just yet NFL craft.
Every black land I had a bad A so called tragedy occurred in their life.
They focused on it and they put it out there.
It was almost like tragedy.
Porn on every black player.
Go back to this past draft.
They have parodies honors on YouTube.
I don't hear anything racist, so we gotta boycott years PM Baba.
But when it comes to James, though, didn't do anything with the Kobe 19 thing and what he said.
And you know the crazy.
I want you guys after this.
You know what extra spent about the first thing James always said.
He said, I am not in a position.
I He's literally talking.
Look, I am a sports owner.
What did I say? It's okay, fine.
It's never the people you have to be worried about.
Are the people like those of the D A.
10 years ago, that could have had, um, the arrested officers Guy's name.
You want to kill George Floyd Chavan? Yeah.
Talks about her because I think it was her.
What? She wasn't campaigning.
No one talks about that.
James, always leery, telling you he's trying to.
For me that and it's an issue with a lot of us.
My, my, my, my perspective.
I feel that because many of us we come from broken homes, right? So when we see sports and galvanises for a lot of people, get their say I may not be, You know, I may not be ever be a MBA play in my life, but the tenacity I put into working out dressed up is gonna It made me a good scientist.
May be a good lawyer.
Maybe get this ball whatever.
But we have a Nen Faction way.
Should we take sports to mean something greater in our overall community? Not overall.
So called trying to build what we call a culture.
And we have to take a step back and be like these guys, they're icons, they're not.
They're not our mothers, they're not.
Our father's out on communes like that, even though some of them are.
But they're not the people that we should be looking at to say, Hey, we need to get out this where I live in this bad situation.
You got this wrong, James.
Olds, let me tell you, I'm not that guy and people want to draw on the bus for that? Yeah.
I mean, have you lost a man? You know something? Everybody inside right now.
Our pugilist, Floyd, um you know, just happen with Gemma was saying, if you if you really read this the first state like give mo se, he literally says, I'm not the guy.
No, I'm not the guy to tell you what to do or tell you what he should do.
And I'm just saying I'm really get so disgusted with with ESPN sometimes, man, Because the digit struggle pushed his narrative on James Dolan.
And I'm not trying to defend James.
But I can't disrespected me in when he when he's done good.
And then we killing for not saying something even though he's been doing something for years.
But we don't bring that East me doesn't bring that up.
It's a terrible song, but he makes a joke about Trayvon Martin.
We know it wasn't good, but it saw it wasn't good.
The song wasn't doing good, but his home is there.
But the message of the song was good messages to the right place but said they don't talk about that.
They don't talk about when, uh, he paid for the funeral.
They don't they pay for.
He paid for the funeral of David Storm.
They don't talk about being the second we live in.
This won't culture, as everybody say there, Buddy praises Mark Cuban.
They praise of of the Warriors owner, the trade spurs.
But James Dolan is the only owner to have all black triple threat of executive general manager and Head Coast Only one in N B A history in 20.
So whenever David for 2018 and gave it a team this year, MBA, same deal in the 1st 1 The well, everything.
But we don't talk about like you said that to me.
Out of my last four courts were black, young, young, black, by the way They were all besides Mike Woodson.
They were in the forties.
I think I even think are dead.
Fish was in the stories, so you know.
But let me say something that really bothered me, right? So I'm reading the comments on YouTube.
Ray, on some of these people, you know what released this one coming stuck out to me and this is the problem.
How did James don't let fumbled a bag? Hey, say, how did James on the phone with a bag? This is, Ah, away right now.
You can't catch it, and that's the problem right there.
It's a way of right now.
That's the problem.
It's a wave right now.
Did you hear that part? It's a wave right now, and you didn't catch it.
First of all, we don't need James.
Don't need to speak out on black issues.
That's number one.
We don't need James Dolan to speak out on black issues.
He's never lived.
He's never, ever.
He's been privileged his entire life.
He's never, literally never had to sleep unless he chose to.
Never had to sleep without.
Never actually go without the person.
Drive your socks in front of the of it before you go to school.
It had to do none of that ****, man.
I'm going to speak out black issues.
I don't want James doing to speak out on black issues because he does not know what to say.
He doesn't know about it.
It's respect in the playground.
This is that killed me and I said, OK, every this is the problem, right? And I was watching a video and someone said it.
I was watching him speak for yourself.
So that again we got me on that.
He got noticed me crazy.
Uh, someone said it best is easy right now to be on the right side because everybody's doing said, If you know how sick people could feel, how they feel about college, I don't get most Not the biggest family Colin Kaepernick, but people that were sticking with kind of Kaepernick that did.
And what I'm not respected because it wasn't.
It's not easy to do what college again people can find a full about him.
But it was easy for Colin Bit.
Hey did it when nobody was doing it.
He did it when it was hard.
I'm sick of everybody now.
It is funny how Stephen A.
Smith wasn't message cabinet, but now everybody's saying to him, Well, look, cabinet was right.
Kaepernick was right, and not everybody wants to get on that weight now that it's easy cause everybody's doing, tell me.
Tell me when anybody doesn't do any, you do it.
That's when it's hard.
People killed one with this crap And people are bullcrap seven.
I'm not talking about the major company said because we know if you really know, you know how they get down, You know that they're going to jump on this way.
We all know that.
What about the people in here? This you just killing people.
And this Joining the wave now doing this is just crazy to me.
You don't gentle stand.
It was then when ever until September.
Do this now anybody doing now that doesn't your phony or fake man that you want to meet me? It's not going to me Oh, doing these away doing But it's, you know, it's almost sad, dude.
And this goes to my people and someone said, This man is like the whole old saying right.
You know, teach, give a person food you feel for data, You almost you.
And this is why I say you can't give free things two people are for because they're never fully gonna appreciate it.
Like you mentioned a great thing about the wave.
Like I'm literally checking social media and people that I know for a fact that when they and their non black and when then the pressings off their friends and said his one black ideas.
They'll say the and work with No, like they don't give a **** they because I see you as like a safe black person.
I see them doing a blackout stuff.
I've seen a kid.
I have no lead was high one time.
He's in court saying, and we're going to end wars by block.
He's found his Facebook or we go toe going to get I might Are you serious? Don't.
So when you talked about the wave thing that hit me so hard because I'm me, Kim and check instagram anymore because that incident for, like, a lot of ignorant stuff.
But I just see a lot of these for yourself, and I'm even texting my friends like I told you so I have a bunch of white friends who never talked that, you know, we gotta come out your nose and I see I look online.
I see all these people riding away.
But James Dolan put like this in there may have been someone during a cold it 19 thing. Who was I Go, bro.
I know I worked anything, but I'm not working out.
The Knicks may have something to say Double, but I'm suffering right now.
I'm sick. My mom's it.
And this do James Dolan gay put money in the stash for my mom.
For my father, my husband myself love it may be suffering to survive, and no one could remember that, cause it should have been a follow up chemo like, Yo, does Why are you leaking this out to everybody who you know, who leaked this out to everybody you got discussing this do held out backs when we could have suffered.
He has nothing to do about block.
And you see how everyone was quiet on both sides when it came to her coming to his aid.
And also a cruel if I was going the curls. Vitus funding.
I don't see people.
I don't see any leaked emails.
Be like, **** James on. That's a good new baba.
Sometimes you can be nice to people, you know, I read that and respected in love because of the everyone.
What they want said he gave a lot of black and what a lot of people did.
A lot of unqualified black people.
There are no jobs, a lot of leeway to prove himself.
So if you looked at the Knicks, you actually tell the next.
Now the race is at high.
Everybody you can see because they are a lot of black people and they sucked a lot these years.
I must say, I'm looking around, but I just don't get how forget even the media.
So if people buried June se yo, if ESPN came out the next day and put out someone said NBK is this and because that and I know it's not use him and they asked me like Oh, no, we'll give you foot I'm like, No, I'm what happened to integrity? Hey, wait, get I don't seem I don't know destroyed not by how we Smith just said, and I don't know if that's true and also don't call me, he said.
James, doing last month, offered the youth MSG as a temporary hospital.
I don't know if that showing that I don't know if that was possible, but again, those are the little things that we don't hear.
But here's the thing that's that's great.
It might be because here's the thing about James Dolan.
From what I've seen, I've I just haven't seen him go out and publicize to everyone of all the things that he does.
As a matter of fact, if you go back with that whole Steve Stout thing, right? James Dolan.
I mean, I'm sorry Stephen A.
Smith was on ESPN, he said.
One of the reasons that we need Steve Stout is not to speak about internal matters for the New York Knicks, but the paint James Dolan in a better light because James Dolan does not do a good job of letting people know all the things he does for the community.
Hey, doesn't do a good job of doing that for himself, Stephen A.
This and you don't have Stephen A.
Smith is about the mix.
He said he does not let it know Steve Stout should be doing that job, which I agree with Steve, you know if, but if he doesn't want to let that out, that's his business.
He doesn't have to tell everybody.
Every single thing that he does is that what Stephen A.
Smith do for the community like way people come off Jordan, They did the same thing with Jordan.
Where was, like whole abroad, like people actually understand Wow, Jordan did for people.
He got pipping the Nike contract, he told Charles Barkley, go four points instead of just taken.
He did a lot of stuff like, even though they point out even the politician that he didn't want to publicly endorse, he just gave that guy money.
And everybody wants to pick this guy because, oh, when he said that, you know, it's crazy.
Just art imitating people want to see fake this.
They don't care about what you're doing it underground.
OK about this when they're Pierce.
Uh, Mrs Award done work done was given homes to people out.
And I think in Atlanta area I can remember.
And he's the one that gave me squats in his house to start Watson, the football player top top quarterbacks for the Houston Texans.
No one talks about this.
I've never heard Warren doesn't mention generals, has a school, didn't hear it mentioned today that they brought librato.
And he has a school, too.
This one took it.
This I'm saying, do something so it touches your heart because you know why if you're doing it for people out, people are fickle and a lot of people are gonna criticize you.
Really? Excuse My legs ain't about ish.
They're not about it. So it was something.
Don't do it to appease at peace.
People look good for the people.
You know why, when all is said and done, the most high is going to see you and people that you affected that are truly about that They really eight pieces of ish.
They'll appreciate that.
Says no savvy before national, let me say one more cake 400 full of office.
This first, though, didn't make a statement.
You know, they're gonna say great partners did it.
But there's Gregg Popovich.
Probably That's not the Spurs.
That's not the sport in that.
And then I'm sorry, savvy, but that's ridiculous.
So because this crazy old I watched videos Oh, great public is great public.
The owner spurs.
Is he the Spurs? No, no.
So keep the same energy for the Spurs.
I want to get a hold of one of her.
I guess the Nets didn't make a statement, but I want.
I want to come back.
I'm gonna come back to you guys.
I'm gonna get to a couple phone calls, people who've been calling in, and they don't make sure I get to come back and get to your savvy.
I just don't want to lose the people that's calling in because I like to get their voice to so say, my song grid eggs.
I like to get their voice to But, um, it's disheartening, man, because, you know, we have such a bigger issue at stake.
And, you know, James Dolan is the topic of conversation, but we're gonna We're gonna get stabbed.
We're gonna keep it true to that call.
You live man enough.
The next spot shut.
Your blackest time was good.
Tony Croll was popping.
Which brother? How you feeling? I'm all right, man.
I'm going to show home.
I wasn't even aware of what was going on in your, um your posts on on you too.
I mean, and I still wasn't aware into a couple hours.
We're going out when I got home from work, and yeah, I watched the statement and whatever.
I didn't understand where that with outrage came from like I was a little confused because I didn't I didn't know if he was saying I don't understand it.
He was like restricting, not to say anything.
No, he did not because I went back to look at players instagrams to see if they said anything right, because I did read that somewhere.
Someone had said something about, um that, you know, it's not right for James Dolan.
Teoh not allows employees to say something.
I was like, Wait a minute, When did that happen? So I went and I looked and I seen several players, not all the players, but I've seen several players had made statements so clearly the public relations department.
Nobody said anything about no telling employees not to say anything.
No, I mean eso That isn't what happened.
It was the outrage that a lot of people, basically what people are saying is this being silent on the situation is equal.
To be in is equal to racism, right? Wait, I disagree with because someone could be very silent because maybe it's not their way, but do all kinds of work behind the scenes.
Someone could not be on social media.
You know, I could say I don't post on social media anymore, but I'm going to do all this work behind the scenes because that's how I operate.
So because of silent doesn't mean that I'm racist or that I support racism.
You know, I'm saying and less last year behind the scenes, unless I'm behind things with you.
I'm none the wiser what you're doing.
Yeah, I was listening.
I was enjoying everybody's everybody's take.
I think it's like a vendetta on, and they just, you know, they're trying to force him out, and they really taken around approach immediately.
I'm taking over, you know, the stuff you guys will mention of all the good good thing there.
I know he's done do after community.
Um, it just made made no sense to me.
And it's funny how Galen just mentioned Jordan and I was just thinking opposite about joining home just because he everything.
I've never heard of any good thing Jordan has done, you know, to benefit someone like myself.
So one they grow up the way I grew up home, and that's they way we know was athlete, which in that case you know that changes everything, but just like a normal kid in the hood or no situational cool fork over 19 situation like the good things named Honor.
The A lot of these other people haven't done anything is set opening mouth and say so.
And as soon as the situation dies down, they know where to be found.
You know, they just mentioned anything for the moment.
They really I'm really I've been trying to reach out to you two.
It's flying prior to this whole Copan 18 thing. I've been home.
I've been trying to get these recordings home or interviews.
Well, um, we're like some supporters, um, also, you know, trying to get, you know, just a different ethnic groups sitting down and having a panel and discussion.
A lot of what I was doing kind of got shut down.
I think only got really two different videos.
Oh, but in the meantime, I've been trying to do, like, you know, reach people and set up Skype meetings or, you know, video interviews and things.
Things like that.
They know I really been out there in the field with these protests, at least of the local protests home.
And it's crazy because, you know, we had talks final scenes and you really inspired me with some of the things that you were telling me you wanted to do and some of the things you were ready.
We're doing in your community home, back to us and with videos.
I'm all over the place.
It was bothering me every time I've seen somebody.
Like what? Maga hat or whatever.
And then home, I realized how angry I was getting, you know? So I was on my break time, and I'm like, I got a shot that in these things affect me and really think about like, um, just because somebody has a maggot, they don't have to necessarily be be racist.
And so that's what brought me into one.
Sit down and do these interviews just to see where some of these people my mind's were.
What made that? What made them? No, I agree with his use or part of fees or whatever it is they agree with.
Oh, and it's funny, like within the last 23 weeks, like now, getting a lot of these things set up.
So So I'm a get to.
Actually, I don't know if these recent events have changed.
People's minds open people's minds, but that's the assumption that I'm under.
So a lot of people are empty with this statement.
But I think a lot of people are They can't help but change the views or see things that they didn't see before.
You know? I mean it and, you know, and what you're trying to do, you know, people are gonna have some negative thoughts and statements about what you're trying to write.
You know, people going to say, Oh, ah, you want to talk to someone who hasn't make at Just do what you do, man.
Just do what you do, you know, if you want to find out, why did you know? However they you know why, why they wanted to support.
So that's what you do.
Find out why they wanted to support Trump because one of the things I always look at and I tell people all the time I would never run for office.
But hypothetically speaking, if I did, I would sit down with those and white supremacy, whoever they are, those groups to find out what is your thinking right? Because that's the only way that you want to be able to reach anywhere.
I read white supremacists, white supremacists literature now because I need to know how they're thinking, you know? Hey, some cards tastes and cannot stop me real quick, sir. Yeah.
So you know what symbol really disappointed me the other day that I was really excited about.
And this is my fault. Forget myself.
I was wait, because the breakfast of at least interview with was blimp.
All right? And so I was excited because I'm like, Wow, is Rush Limbaugh.
This is completely different.
I kind of find what's reliable a little bit.
I'm not big out of the artful everything, but I know how he feels about certain things.
And I thought it was gonna I thought it would be excellent discussion, because does one accepted discussing that we need to move forward.
You know, if you've got people like the breakfast of going with talking to what's Limbaugh and getting Westmont to understand our point of view, and we've got to understand his point of view and some can I say that was one of the most disappointing interviews I've ever watched, and I advise you to watch it.
I think you were for the same way.
I think get more for the same way. I think Kevin will.
For the same way.
This was one of the most on this was celery.
This was zero calories, zero anything.
They're literally coming out ribs lumbar because they don't see his point of view or not understanding where he's coming from and was limbo is trying to say them.
He's really excellent points, an excellent fax, but they're just screaming out, you know, to meet this.
Isn't this one meat there? Just cream? I know you know, you just prickly and you're white.
You're this yet that just screaming that that's all.
It was the 22nd minute in it himself, and they were just screaming that.
And I was so disappointed because I'm like, you know what? I want you prepare.
If you have repaired and study was limbo and understand who he waas and see his point of view at least trying under their point of view, this could have been a discussion to bring two different platforms together, understand? each other, so move forward.
That better discuss.
But what? The breakfast club mainly Solomon.
The God you know is usually, Yeah, I was just screaming out.
You know, you're just old white, man.
You don't understand nothing.
This this and that.
And I almost felt bad for us because he's just he's trying to understand we don't have these conversations, but they weren't trying to move forward.
And I really that really bothered me, because that's not what we should be doing.
I said we shouldn't be.
And we're gonna be in a civilized place and have a platform like that.
Would we can talkto over 10 million people, cause I know the Burnquist on average, like eight main, I think rest of limbo cut the average around that number two got 16 million people.
Some that that I understand that what conversation? And so move forward.
But no, it was just more interest of spitting up more ignorance and we didn't get a chance to move forward.
It was just an empty interview.
And stuff like that bothers me because we got to do better.
Like I say this, you gotta understand what these people are thinking, Because how can we How can we try to move forward if we don't understand? You know are quote unquote enemies.
You know what I'm saying? We got to be better, man.
How could you understand? But also, how can you protect yourself? You don't know what they think.
And how can you protect yourself? You know, saying if it comes down to being able to protect yourself Oh, I mean, you got to know, You got to know what they're thinking in order to protect yourself.
You know? I mean, yeah, yeah, we've gotta be able t hold on.
Because this defendant everything quick before and I'm not defending all because the reason I wanted to do these interviews because I don't I don't like the way I feel when I see the hat automatically.
I'm thinking these people don't like me.
You might not wake them.
And most of them I'm in a work environment.
So it's not like I could react any type of way.
And I'm honestly just looking for something Sharia like I realized, Like the way I feel when I see that hat, I shouldn't.
I got to control myself, so I want to know.
I'm hoping I'm wrong.
Basically, I'm hoping just because you wear that hat that doesn't not starting me.
You don't like me.
And then and then we could go from that, right? Without a doubt.
Without a doubt, You don't like me.
I don't want to know exactly.
You know what I want to know exactly.
I was like, Yeah.
Looked out. Okay.
No doubt about a Tony.
My appreciated call, bro.
Gets a couple of ba*****t and, you know, listen, today I got I got cold.
I don't want to say the person said I was a sellout, but he said, Sim, please don't sell out that.
That's what he said to me if you want.
If you want to find out what my response was, you can go to the YouTube.
You can go to that video, see what my response was to my man that said that, Um but that's what he'll get.
Any time you start to look and say, Well, let me try to understand the other side.
Or in this case, it was simply saying, Don't let this situation with James Dolan divert you from what's really out there.
What's going to sell up, Call it live another.
But next was popping.
Hey, what was going on with the bill? What was going on, man? Which got? Not much.
I just get tired off that.
I'm at the point where I just I mean, without sports on, I don't watch ESPN, so I mean, look how happy if I can't watch it on our league past.
I don't really watch football like that.
I like baseball, but a mess stand? Yes, he had not showing them.
Do you like Why do we keep torturing ourselves? We don't have to watch it.
We have the internet.
We have your show.
We have other shows like it.
You know, you don't have to watch network anymore.
And I just think I didn't want that Jordan do***entary because I knew there was gonna be Nick slander.
But I'm not gonna watch ESPN anymore because they didn't have to do what they did today.
You know, like they are a slow news day.
So they decided to attack the Knicks.
I mean, well, you know, it started right away.
I mean, it's but to be honest with you, it started.
It started last night before he even got to ESPN.
That came out late last night.
It at some time.
And, you know, and I seen people, you know, start saying stuff then and I was just looking like everything that's going on around.
You worried about James Dolan in the Knicks? In this situation, I get that I get, It's going to get around on Twitter and all that.
But, I mean, you know, I have ESPN on my time.
I mean, every every show they have.
Like Nick Slander.
Everything is just don't say anything, because they don't have to say anything.
Name another team led higher in all Black name.
Another team that gave a black You know, how many teams can you name on one hand? The game.
You know, black.
I complete autonomy good and different.
They give him complete autonomy over the team.
I mean, these are you know he does.
I mean, people, people lied on the stand.
You know, Cablevision and all that.
Yeah, You pay money, but they're they're big reason Why ESPN Maybe he's ticked off because, you know, they like, uh blah, blah, blah, um, channels like, yes, network and said, Why MSG They keep a company like ABC and ESPN from going in and privatising, You know, the sports like in L. A.
That's all ESPN.
They own the Lakers.
So it's like you don't hear anything.
You have your local sports guys.
That's the number one in New York.
ESPN sports is like number 15 but you know, they're gonna slender James own at any time because they don't want him and what he stands for.
But this man done nothing wrong.
I mean, Spike was an idiot.
I don't even care what What they ask you to leave, Leave peacefully? You hit a guy I don't want to hear, like, you know, you hit a guy and then you crapped on taxes queuing.
You're done with me.
I don't care about our locally and is one of my favorite players.
But no, you will talk talks with you and you didn't have anything to do with it.
But he would like you lose credibility with me.
Oh, I understand.
Where you coming from, man? I understand.
We can't for the kid.
I mean, you know, it's You know, I really started.
Believe gamble when they say they got a conceded effort to try to get this man out of there and they're using and they're using the in tactics.
Todo se You can't keep a muting yourself man over top of me talking, man.
I just I just can't stop tonight.
You just going off like crazy.
Hey, you guys say I still got a phone call, man.
I still got a phone call.
See, that's the problem.
That's a problem whereby right now I'm saying you get people too much freedom down how to control yourself.
And my man I appreciate the call, bro.
No, no, thank you very much.
May have just good night.
And I do want to get a couple of shoutouts.
Ladies and gentlemen, some super chats.
First of all, call somebody to think of the super chat.
You say you understand the family. Stay.
You with your family. Stay.
Stay safe and everybody else that's in the chat.
I'm saying be safe.
Watch out for these.
He's safe, especially if you out joining a protest.
Watch out for some of these people who are planning out here to incite these riots.
It's not always, it's not the protesters.
A lot of times it's people that they put here to inciting.
Big freeze, he said.
Peace to the chat.
Keep your heads up.
Big fleas again.
Thinking with Supertec, you say active isn't Take stamina, keep on keeping on exactly.
Activism takes stamina.
We can't stop here.
We can't stop now.
Can't stop and stop now You got to keep moving.
Shoval thinking for the super set.
You said it pays well to sell out your people in community.
Sometimes it does.
That's what you see happening to a lot of people from my community.
Big fees, he says.
Simmons, a guy real recognized, will appreciate you my broke procedure.
Get to another phone call here.
Call the lab. Enough of the next was Pop.
I was gonna say, my darling, it was up. Dolly.
Yeah, I just wanted ah basically give you guys in my point of view on this whole don't situation.
Honestly, man, it's like when Dolan, like, ah, speaker for black people like I've never seen them to be that even like outside of basketball, why why I hate Dolan like Like you don't like building because of basketball.
Things find cool.
But like he doesn't matter, because he made a statement and in his statement, was adequate.
He's not Ah, you know he's not a politician like that's his place.
Listen, the New York Knicks and if they have, please correct me.
But the New York Knicks have never, ever spoke out about social issues.
This is what's so befuddling to me.
It's for years and years and years.
And please, if they have, please let me know.
Black men have been being shot and killed for years and years and years and years and years in other states and in New York State.
The Knicks have never made a social media statement.
Players have, but not the New York Knicks.
No one ever said anything about it, and that's what I'm saying, and it's like and it's like, you know, Guillermo usually comes out with these conspiracies, man, But this one, this one has to be true about you know how, like ESPN has an outfit for Dylan trying to trying to get him out, you know, just using media tricks and like this spewing out.
It's like every moment that they have.
They say something bad about Dolan.
Think it every single moment, and it's like, Hey, like we get it.
You don't like the guy of the lake.
You can't bring race into it because Assad race goes, He hired black people, more black people than most teams.
Well, the only way they don't bring it race into is that I don't want this man to speak for my community.
So you know, and it's not because I won't, you know, as an owner, I'm not, You know, he it is what it is, right? But just I don't need him.
He doesn't know he hasn't lived it, and he hasn't tried to act like he lived it or knows, and I don't want him to.
That's why the whole thing to me is just stupid.
So that's what I want to do it right.
I don't want to give any more attention to that because I want it.
I want to move in to make sure that we're staying focused because this is exactly this is exactly what happens.
Like Justice Justin Hernandez just said, the media wants to make you look at another direction.
The battle of changes starting from within the human soul.
Forget about Dolan.
All right, You say he's saying the bad of changes coming from comes from you.
Forget about Dolan.
I don't want to.
I don't want to keep talking about doing Let's start talking about some other things.
All right? So this is what I wanted.
What I wanna ask you now, Darley, what are you going to do? And, uh, one more thing from Justin Hernandez.
He said we talk about government That needs to change.
Yes, but at the end of the day, the war starts from within.
The human soul focus on what's in front of you.
So, darling, I'm asking you, and I'm asking everybody out here that's in the chat, and you could put it in the YouTube check.
You could put it in a SportsCastr chat.
I want to know from you.
What are you going to do to create change? That's what I'm challenging everybody.
And some people may not want to say so.
If you don't want to say, can nobody forced you to say at least think about but I'm asking you, darling, what are you going to do? What you get next? Steps.
My next steps are always Teoh because people think that just going out, you know, donating money.
You know, saying black lives matters, making a post like that stuff.
That's what's going to make a change.
You know, go speak to people.
People who are in power because the only way to get into power bi speaking to people who are in power, tell them about issues.
Listen, you know someone from the Bronx, So the Bronx renounce on fire like everyone's going crazy there small businesses that are getting her, you know, for things that have nothing to do with it. And it starts.
And it's a point that I made on on my instagram post earlier, and it was that Listen, we can't talk about social issues outside of our own community, where our old communities are hurting us.
It's like it's dexterity, right? Like you.
You're fighting with your wife.
What is it they're going to tell? You can't fix the problems with each other until you click the problems within yourself.
There's a lot of self hate going on within.
For example, I'm Dominican within my community, right where Ah lot of Dominicans talk about their now black or they're talking about, You know, these Modano's, which means these black people, right, like they criticized other black people.
And it's like if you're not correcting them, if you're not doing what you can within you're within your own circle, how can you expect scenes outside of it? You know, it starts with from within, and that's just how I feel about it.
I'm very free starts from within.
I did a on the front stoop, you know, about the front stoop and on the front stoop.
I did a video or a show where we talked about I had had a change, right? How to rise up from a pressure.
Kind of like a little guide, I guess.
I want to say, I don't know if you want to call it a guide, but it was our conversation.
How do we rise up from oppression in? The first thing that we talked about is loving yourself.
That was the first thing we told about loving yourself.
Now let's itself, I guess the first thing and I agree with you 100%.
Know who you are as a person.
Know your history.
Love yourself. Love your people.
I m e I feel you a my friend.
I appreciate the call.
All right, I'm gonna get back here to the chat because I want to talk about what's next.
What do we do next? How do we move on from here? Alright, my love.
Everyone here, man. Just one.
Stay safe and keep fighting the fight, man.
You know, God willing, we will got to where we want to be one day.
No doubt about it, man.
I appreciate your brother that.

Thank you for being here with me.
Are you to join me over on SportsCastr That lingers in the you tube chat.
The league is also in the description of the video.
We're going to continue to talk about solutions.
What's next? Where do we go from here? So that this does not stop pace.
Hi, ladies and gentlemen, we're still here and let me get these guys over here.
So what's next? Where do we go from here, man? Uh, what about from headaches? So I have long term things I don't think about, but I think that one thing I want always to dues to anything that we got planned.
I honestly I want us to kind of wait.
We took everything dies down, right? Wayto your mobile shoes because to me, a lot of was going on extremely a motion.
That's why there's a lot of confusion.
People don't see it.
I think all things you have a plan to try to fix and alleviate unless is things have to do now try to hold that off until everything dies down.
Keep that same mindset when everything died that dies down.
All these people are no longer look whatever they carry out by what one things I'm doing now, Like I look really looking up.
Kid programs coding province of black, especially in Brownsville.
Needs to go to form.
Um, but I want I want it stopped on a consistent basis, but I don't want to get into I'm not emotional.
I just want to do where I wanted to be a long serving.
So yeah, that's one of these I'm doing now.
I'm looking at it, and I'm also like I mentioned to you about, like, kiss byproducts itself in Brooklyn.
But I wanted to wear like we're literally trying to buy certain items i e whatever.
But try to find out the avenues for small black businesses because I think that one thing regard, I saw the Chicago, but I think she came in, which was the one thing that led to the chaos that we've seen Is that a lot of black people, a lot of you know, the value of ownership, right? So if we had to buy ownership, even these kids, these kids in a hook with a CEO, that's my uncle short store.
That's my mother shopped.
That's my you know, I know that I do that he owns it.
They're not gonna let those places.
And for all these little out of towners and agents who come in to try to remove it, they probably protected those places where you have the idea of ownership.
You take a more a better approach from a king's mindset.
The King of Queens mindset, my civic ownership mindset of building things, mindset of progress versus chaos.
So I think that we could start suggesting avenues whether it be because every black everything, but if you can support place, especially online, because we buy so much stuff online.
We could find places where it's like least some about money, whether supply whatever it may be.
Let's just try to find places that are black own, and our money is going to try to make out a consistent patients.
Yeah, and listen, it's going to be impossible for someone to go out and go toe all black old stores, right and shop.
That is impossible.
You may not have.
You might need to go buy food.
You may not have a black owned grocery store in your neighborhood.
What you gonna do, Drive three hours, go to a black owned grocery store? That's not gonna happen.
But when you have the opportunity to go to a black own store and it's not to say and for those who were white, that might be listening like, but why you just got to go to a black on store Here is why, Because too many times we don't support their own stores in our community that are black owned, and we spend dollars elsewhere, right so that tax money is going into somebody else's neighborhood, and then our schools, our city streets out.
Roads are community centers don't get funded because those things get funded through the tax money that comes from the the economics of our neighborhood.
But that's my employees, and those same people will.
Then, when you're in your degraded state, they'll ask, Why haven't you pull yourself up by the bush riot? That's how we do it.
So anybody who's wife on on black, who doesn't understand I'm not homeless people to like.
Let's use honest you don't really care how you feel but, you know, because of sin platform.
And if you're coming from a good space and you really want to know our our context from the same as yours, you are right.
You are this defecated on white if you are Arabic, if you are Chinese, Korean, whatever.
You have cultures that have come over to the US and you've built yourself up to some of the same things we're talking about.
So ask your parents when you see somebody prints on somebody stores and shops around, and it's probably down lines down a generation, and you're benefiting from that.
Go ask them if you want to understand.
Black people are still in a lot of us with literally at ground zero wish.
I want to say there's been progress, but we start ground zero where we have to build ourselves up by that mercantile type of off kind of women of progress.
So when we talk about that is not that we don't like white people, whatever.
But we need to build ourselves off.
You don't go to the Asian person when they have in the Chinese responses and you go to Koreatown.
Excuse me in New York, 30 Thursday, wherever that is, and then literally Korean people that you work with them, that and they only in Korea town because they're supporting those businesses from those and surprises.
So you can ask us that you can ask them that guy's Arabic people.
We shop at their own Arabic multi supply stores.
Whatever allow food.
It's the same thing, is just that we have to build up ourselves.
Not racism is the fact that we have to be ourselves up because we like Onyx, said.
All we got is us.
We gotta pull ourselves up regards of what happened past regards of things that were going through.
We have to pull ourselves exactly exactly exactly.
Kevin, You want a jumping out here? Like what's next, man? What do you What do you know? What do you do next? I know for me, and I'm sorry, but, uh, to ask you a question and then cut you off right before you get a chance to talk my bad.
But for me, you know, for me, you know, the next steps is Well, first of all, you know, I like the mentor.
I like the mentor, right.
So make sure when I meant on, you know, obviously, you know, helping this case do some of the things that they are going through in their life.
But you continue to drop Jules about, you know how to support their community in ways that gamble just said I don't need to repeat it.
Repeat it because he said it.
Ways to support their community, how to protect themselves, educate them on the history of this country and the president of this country.
Yeah, as it comes to racism and oppression.
Um, take my time to participate in any you know, when it is, you know, in community activism.
I'm going to a town hall meeting tomorrow night.
You know, to talk about really? For my community, you know, talk about what can we do to make sure that this does not happen? You know, so many, so many places reactive instead of proactive.
Right now, I'm not.
You know, that's not to say that things haven't happened in this community.
But how do we quell? Quell the things that have happened.
You tryto prevent other things from happening that are even more detrimental, you know? And I mean, listen, everyone's gonna have their own way.
I'm just asking you, What is it that you're going to do? And I'm not saying and I'm talking about beyond a post beyond the post because we need more than that, Kev.
Okay, so you answered, like, 15 consent, but I was going to say, being more of a mentor, touristy younger.
I mean, I'm about to turn 50 this October.
I'm so out of those 50 years.
You know, you nine years, I've, um uh I've listened and been mentor.
Now I want to be the one that's actually doing the mentoring to the to the young, uh, younger crowd.
I want to know what How they feel about all this racism? I want to know how they feel about all this that's going on right now.
Um, me personally, I want to get to know And, you know, here in the study of playful, I want to get to know my councilman in my mayor.
Um, you know, better have those conversations, you know, with them If that you know, if they'll have us, you know, at these town halls that you're talking about because we haven't miss Well, so I want to get to It's getting to know what they're thinking as well.
You know what? The councilman and our and our mayor here, um, I also want to keep watching.
You know, a lot of the, um, the real news, Um, stations like CNN and MSNBC and get to know who these, um who these council council people are cool.
Um, I was in the Senate who's in the, you know, House representatives.
And mainly trying to get these were young people to vote come November.
Because how we all turned out to vote Obama for eight years, It seems like we just took a step back when it was time to vote in Hillary.
And we just figured, you know, uh, surely, you know, show when and all of a sudden Trump's in office, we want to get him out of office.
And the one way is to where everyone to vote, especially the young people to vote.
And, um, that's, you know, really feel.
I feel a lot of racism, and I don't mean to get political, but I think a lot of racism stems from from Trump.
Well, the only thing I'm going to say about that, okay, it's racism was here way before Trump was ever on his oath.
I hate you know, Listen, you know, you know, I'm not a trump supporter.
I don't you know, And I'm saying that just because you know what I'm gonna say, maybe sounds like, um, defending them, not defending him, right? I mean, if I was, I wouldn't care what anybody really thought.
Anyway, I'm gonna have my own opinions, but racism didn't start with Trump.
Has he fanned feathers and who he affiliates himself with, or, um, whatever in cold worlds that he kind of spills out there. Of course he has.
The racism was here way before that in 1992 we had race riots in L.
Let's go back to 1968.
Martin Luther King was shot and killed.
We had riots in D.
C burn down the city of D C neighborhoods that it now gentrified 1990 to behead riots in L.
What happened? Riots all over the country for the same thing, you know, saying so it was here before Trump.
You know, it was it was well here before, Trump.
Not that I agree with Trump's ideologies.
I'm just saying it was here before Trump.
So we can't say Trump is the cause of racism because racism is what this country is built on.
Okay, then I'll say this, then A lot of the turmoil.
I mean, you said you gotta admit, um, now, as far as knowledge of presidents, I go back to President Carter.
All right, so from President Carter to to Trump, you gotta admit that the Trump's presidency within these last four years, the last four years, it's been a GNU defied as the other president stabbed them before him.
I mean, I've never seen a nation so divided.
I think what you last four years.
I agree with you.
The nation is very, very divided.
Uh, and you know, Trump does not help that situation.
I definitely agree what you did.
Yeah, that that's all.
That's all I'm really saying.
And and again, um, we have to vote.
We gotta vote that.
I had to say, All right, I say you want to jump in the Oh, so let's come to Savvy.
There's go to Savvy.
Let's go to Savvy.
Savvy is jumping here.
Your camera is a little bit low.
Okay? Said Okay.
I know you might have to go out and come back again.
I had to go out.
Come back game, guys.
They they was going on.
So, um, how about that? Oh, you go.
Yep. Sadly good, guys. Abby.
Um, you know what exactly is the topic right now? We're just talking about you know what's next? I don't want to go back into James Dolan.
I want to keep the focus on what's next.
How do we move forward? What's next? We move forward, I think.
Economic unification, I think, uh, smaller, more targeted efforts.
Um focusing on the actual agents of decision making in our local communities and understanding how the balance of power works where we live.
Yeah, yeah, yeah, man, the goes a good. That's good.
That's good, you know.
Ah, the key is not to stop not to stop here.
I think that's the biggest key in the biggest thing that I want to to things that I want to get across, you know? And maybe people need guidance.
Some where to go.
If you don't know, Um, don't stop here.
Number one don't be diverted by a tricks that may be out there to divert you from the actual issues.
And then to don't stop here as there savvy is still free.
If you want to join in with a conversation with a not free Maybe that's the wrong word.
Excited about that And by the way I got the call was over my bed It I mean, it's a free is still live Said free 00 be free brother hoping for now and clearly I'm not, huh? So soon, you know, just toe just so I don't want to do it, I must, from a bigger down into local like that.
My community and I want to break it down.
So what we should do have the whole so locally in only Connecticut, you know, we're doing protests, you know, I'm believing in the church, my logo on the church and everything.
So I think what we're gonna do it probably, you know, no.
Gather the local churches in time, tryto build a plan to talk to the leaders of the communities and the mayor of like, New Haven and Hamden and stuff like that because you know him been in new evens of where you must have predominately black Hamden makes more of a mixed, but it's kind of more probably going toward way, people.
So what, we're gonna do that in the sense of talking to the community and to get an understanding of what's going on? It's trying to move in development of having more black people in my office and positions that were we can elect these officials are like these people so that we can move forward, you know? So I think that's what we're gonna do it cause you know, I didn't get to go to my church on Sunday, but I know My uncle was talking about stuff like that going on, you know? So we're gonna see what we're gonna do about that, Okay? I think Oh, I'm time.
But then on a grander scale as people, that's whole I want to build on.
The savvy was saying when he was talking about, you know, hiring, getting these people.
So, like you said, we got a we gotta focus on.
We gotta make sort of work.
This this isn't just a a fad of the week.
You don't, So we can't have it be a fat we can review for two weeks, and then you know what? We go back toe, Know your typical stuff to drop by the book, have all that stuff that doesn't matter.
We have to keep our foot on the next.
We gotta go for the kill when I mean go for the company, go for the kill in a positive way of making the change.
And, um, right now we need to We need to build laws, hold these cops accountable.
That's you gotta do babies that we can't.
You know, we can make a lot of inspiration that's just not gonna happen.
But we do need to build laws that are more for the benefit of the people than it is for these cups.
Because these cops got so many loopholes in the system that they can get away with murder as we clearly see this guy, right? I don't know.
They changed it yet, but he still won't 33 murder from that completely.
So I don't know if there's any updates, but he had murdered that man calls.
So either way, we need to build laws like that first.
That gives it more power to the people when it comes in is killing so that these cops don't just get to go away and you know they might get a cut, that pension and 1/2 of whatever they get.
You know, we can't have that.
These people need to go to jail, and then also for the cities, we have to make sure that we have black people from that black community in office.
Then we got to do that, and we got to keep building through that like Sammy was saying was also hear What's happening was saying was about, I don't know Gimbel said that I don't know, get more secretary, but it's about But Kim has been saying, This is about the economic growth, like the jewels, communities like the Irish communities that we gotta pick it next, and we got to dominate that financially and get black on.
So that is our I don't want to say within Africa, but you know something that in no sense of the words to get those things going on so that we have black people and just on a power, and then we take over the next thing, the next thing, the next thing that you that you see that there's black people controlling this, and that's how we start making stuff.
And that's what pushed laws.
And that's how we don't get, keep getting kill about of the races, you know, and we got to stay focused on that.
We got to keep going, come back, that's what We're going to change things.
And when we get more black people and more about your focus on becoming mayor is becoming, you know, the people that the town, the town Council, that all those little things we killed building people up to keep doing that.
That's how we're gonna turns these laws.
And that's why we're not gonna feel so belittled and so small when it comes to these outcomes that laws that happened when we don't get what we we don't get the results that we want.
We get this off like sometimes you get so disappointed.
And these and these right weight people lost that they were made in 17 1600.
They didn't care about it.
They didn't think about us.
We got to do better and make new laws that are for us, for all, for black and brown people to be better.
You know, that's what that's what we have to do.
That's how we're going to get some products from some real real progress after 400 years.
That's how you get real progress.
Not you, not, you know, we shall overcome. No.
We got a tick protections and doing the things that's been keeping us down.
The other people of other races been doing.
And that's how we got.
OK, Sam? Yeah, just real quick.
Um I don't know by Zach, You hear me? But, um, there's start.
They are the state they have a new state prosecutor that's gonna be prosecuting that employed case, and they're looking to bring up more charges.
Ford the for that police officer and also charging the other three.
So I just wanted you to be aware it out here, OK? And you know one thing that I think we really have to do, whether or not one thing that I think we really have to do is keep pressure and you can keep pressure.
See, a lot of people don't know you can go to your local councilman's office and just Hey, I want to speak to my councilman, that person, Maybe that person is not there, but you could set up an appointment.
You could do that with your state senators.
I've walked in and said, I need to speak with such a such.
And if that person is there, I'll get to talk to that person.
Now there's one thing to talk.
One thing for something to actually habit, but you've got to keep pressure.
Like I say you were saying, you know you want to get you, you know you want to get your churches together and, you know, tried Teoh trying to get some things enacted.
Well, that's what you gotta do.
You gotta keep pressure on.
I'm saying you got to keep pressure.
You write up the bill that you want enacted, and then you go find someone and legislation that will support your bill.
You can't do that and then have that person trying to push it build through.
It's not easy at all, because then you gotta have people come out and support it.
Then there's a whole voting process for in all of that stuff, right? But you've got to stay active and keep the pressure on.
And if it doesn't work, you continue to fight for it.
Putting that press wrong.
So whether or not you're person that wants to vote or not, you can still put pressure on those people who were in power.
Whether or not you think they should be in power or not, you can still put pressure on the people, govern your community you can, with a group of other people, continue to put pressure.
You've got to keep the pressure there because if you don't and what usually happens in these cases.
After we go out and protest and do all of these things, we feel vindicated.
We have the feeling of vindication and we feel like we've done something and then everything stays to say right.
So we've got to We've really got to keep pressure people.
You know, all the things that we talked about doing a Sfar, as you know, understanding yourself, black people unifying, staying together, protecting each other, not killing each other.
Yes, we got enough people looking to take us out.
We've got to do all those things.
But we got to keep pressure on those lawmakers.
And, like I say, I say, you know, get some some people that represent us in office from that able to from there from that neighborhood.
And that's the most, um, and also within ourselves because I just watched this discussing video, Um, these looters in Times Square and they destroyed times.
Medicine, Baca said, is very true.
I za face with video bison around, but they destroyed Do it Troy Times Square and these will be the same people online that I saw.
You know, some people driving up you have George Floyd and in my head these the same people that complain about the system that want justice from the system.
What, you're literally acting as degenerate.
So what respect do you want from this system? What protections you want from the system like this one? Toma, when it comes to why certain groups are not touched the same way black work or not touched.
For instance, when Arabic store gets a loan from a small bank, people say, Oh, well, they got it and black you could get.
It's not necessarily true.
That's because of racism when he looked at the Arabic Storm, they know that they have a community, You know that they know that this certain type of the corn, Weatherby, Islam, whatever.
They know that there's something that galvanized people and they act in a way to compete in this country.
Unfortunately, we don't have that now.
A lot of people trying what I just saw from that discussing video, a bunch of hypocrites, dragons down on Tomas, all the images stuff.
But these are people that I just lose.
So people robbing from each other keep taking out. You stole.
I had whatever Matt screen or whatever, and it's so much.
But these are I want to be me because there's always There's always a way to work covers, always a way to redeem yourself, right so But that attitude, that aspect, we have to read it.
I'm not sure what can be not saying that, but we have to weed out that aspect.
And if it comes from your own doings and make sure people like that are not born into this world, whatever is done watching this and it's like cities air save people who are online these the same people who will come crying about policemen Tybalt block first of a lot of kids have not been, have not been realized by police.
And then for the simple fact that get minus c this for Georgian.
This for George one.
If George is on the street, just floors on the street, you probably want to give it to EFS Obama.
He was homeless and suffer and to your carrying this stuff out Now the stronger his business.
What do you think the police will do to all black people? New York Now, not just you, because you can get away with it cause you're Roach.
You find whatever to hide the innocent black people, the ones who actually go to police brutality that once were actually exposed to the stuff.
But once you don't deserve this stuff, Not seeing anyone deserted with one people really does there.
So what do you think you're doing? Those people.
So I was just watching my token.
I just said the speed to politicians.
Eso But we go to politicians, right? And Hillary said this one time to peak, some black guys.
I don't think she should be recorded just by said equipment sit.
Something like a along lines of like, what do you have to offer? And if I don't have culture, if I don't have because what they want is they want collect the votes, right? They want semi desert galvanized people.
They're gonna vote for me for whatever.
And I have to give him this.
I have to make a barter after when you go to politicians.
What are we bartering? Ask people with these politicians to say There's I have 11.
Do you want to get my goat warrior? We have this amount of money or we have these amount of people that will.
We have these kids that go to these type of schools or do this vile block and you do this for us? Okay, Deal will do that when they see videos like this and we don't have a culture.
You don't have a collective people to say, Hey, we're stringing this money for expenses that we own.
Whatever posture, what do we have to offer these fever when we when we have these kids like, why would they sit there and protect those kids? When you look at New York that Blasier right now, monitor the time member before Giuliani came in and you have it wasn't Dinkins or Contra several one eighth our many years of just really had time in New York.
And then they bring in Giuliani, who uses race, racial, whatever you wanna call it.
And I think John's races.
But then most of New York was I voting cleaned up New York and the ones who are victims are us.
I just I just I just want people who support this moving your stuff to understand.
The devil is always in control.
We don't have the weaponry to take down America.
We don't have any of that. We're not taking down America.
So when everything recovers, they're gonna come back to us to be like, Well, it was your people who are moody, You know that It was not just us embassies, other people just watching New York in Times Square, especially in New York, where they want to get a guy like the blossom.
You talked about going politicians.
So it may be deep different in D. C.
But I have a feeling that they're gonna bring in.
They might bring in somebody, clean up this stuff, and that might be an unknown.
Your votes Democratic those time.
It might be somebody who might take similar actions like Giuliani.
Stop it First broken window policy.
And when that happens, the same kids will be the ones complaining.
But they're the same ones who helped bring on this chaos.
So it's like, I know what I want to do for people like my let me You Isaiah savvy? Yeah.
I mean, I know what I want to do for people like me more progressive.
Who who We may have different opinions and different ways to get about.
I haven't heard one of you guys preached anarchy or chaos yet, So I'm not When you're saying Cleveland, I don't know about the fight for these people said I don't know.
I mean, you know, I get it.
You don't want to fight for the people, but you know, that's literally the minority of us, though.
So they are the minority over, so out there doing that.
But they of course, they cast a light across over the cast.
A light over all of us, right? No saying they definitely do.
They cast a light over all of us.
And what's painful was a lot of times when you when you when you get something passed through those same people that are out there, looting will benefit from what you got passed.
You're saying and and and it's tough, Um, because those people definitely represented my nobody of us, but they get all the spotlight on television.
Will they take advantage of what I take this I'm talking about? We could sit here and talk about all this supremacy, all this stuff, right? But honestly, guys, soon most of these kids I see and talk about? What's fair is it Have a phone, They have a computer.
They have ways, even if they don't really understand.
People need to be this guidance.
At some point, we don't realize we don't have 1000% agree.
A lot of these kids know how to do things elevated, just school.
Learn certain skills, elevate yourself, Yeah, you to change your making money from.
And a lot of these kids are not surprised.
Anyone would want to be that they just want to be degenerate and what that's, that's where, Like you said, you know, you talk about doing some coding.
Going into the communities to do is encoding.
That's what people like us have to go when they try to steer somebody's kids in the right direction to make sure that they're using the knowledge that they do have that they don't even know that they have.
They don't even notice they have it.
You're saying they don't even know it's there, but it's their form.
It's there, it's in.
There is just, you know, they sometimes they need some some mentors and people who say, Hey, I'm gonna help you bring this out, you know, mean and move onto the right path.
Look, the last thing that I want to say the last thing that I want to say is to my white friends who are watching right down my white friends and too easy.
Ah, I want to say the to see in sports guy.
So I don't think he was generalizing about all people, right? Um, because clearly it's not.
He clearly said, Some of these people who are doing it are casting a light on us.
He said, I don't know that I want to fight for those people, those people who are looting those people who are stealing those people who are burning down buildings.
That's what he was saying.
He was not generalizing about all African omit.
Sorry, I rather used the term black people in a miracle.
He was not generalizing about all black people in America.
He was talking about those who were alluding in stealing my nobody of us, I.
So I just want to make that clear right when I hear for divisiveness right way and try to build a talk about solutions, brother.
All right, when I hear for divisiveness, so let's not do that last thing I want to say to my white friends that are watching what we need you to do.
We need you to talk to your white friends, right? Or your parents that have these racist ideals, and you may not have all the answers, but you can stare them in a direction to get Some of the answers have been talked to someone who is black if they need to find a way to learn more.
Marching in the protest ing is good, but we need you to go further and talking to your white friends.
Family members and those separate things help teach their people.
Hey, so help teach your people? Yeah, you know, I remember one time my mother, Chris Rock, in an interview later.
But excellent point, Remember? Oh, a college backs from the speak about feels like about something about black history or something like that.
And what Black struggled.
But he said he would only do it.
Kevin was a wonderful away because he said, there's no point to tell a black person because the black personality knows, and he wanted to do it with a formal, just a room full of way we want to start, it could get a better understanding.
And, you know, someone really bothers me, you know? And this is why I think a lot of us, you know, I think me you get, we have the first friends, and I know we'll have I've way friends, you know, even friends on that.
And I'm having a conversation with him, and I'm just letting them know, like, you know, Hey, listen, man, do you have a 400 year over four years of just American black history in your face and, you know, it would be ignorance, and I understand those things and understand what's been going on.
And, you know, the way people have is playing a simple to say Wait.
People have to do better and acknowledge and see the history and you guys will never understand how it feels to me Black.
But Teoh get empathy and to understand the world were coming from when we say certain things or we felt a certain way.
You know, I think that would stop a lot of some.
Not a lot of people.
Not a lot of work to do it But you know, you have some people will do that.
Get over slavery or get over.
You know, this There's a name, you know what is really going to say But some people do Somebody would do for that way.
And we just the just happy Like you say, You have to talk to your friends, talk to your mother, talk to your father, talk to your you know, your little brother, your sister and your friends that you know that you know, they have this conversation to make that better Because we can tell you too afraid turned blue and you won't truly understanding in the conversation.
And the things won't move until you get one way Kirsten Soto, another way Personal about it Another way.
Personal Soto another way person about and that's how I would spreads.
And that's how you know, to stop being ignorant to stop being, you know, have the undertone racism.
So I just wanted to say that are free.
But look, ladies and gentlemen appreciate you guys particular time.
Glad we were able toe have things discussion.
And I know some people probably chose Teoh leave because they, you know, they come to hear about the Knicks and hear about sports stuff, but the discussion is needed and was needed.
You mean? And as long as we run from these discussions, you know the problems continue, the ignorance continues, and there's a long, long, long fight ahead of us.
Long fight ahead of us.
There's a lot of work to do, a lot of work to do.
I mean, but, you know, but can't be afraid to have the discussions.
Some people might get mad people who disagree, all those type of things.
But you gotta have the discussions.
You know, I put out a video earlier today and I got a lot.
Most people was like a I like we said that up, I got some backlash from, and I don't care if I get back last year, not got some backlash from all the platforms people, what are you doing and get wrong on all kinds of stuff? You know, I'm saying that's cool.
That's that's all right, you know, same.
I'm not going to back down from what I said, and I will let you know what I'm doing is that in fact, I told the guy what I'm doing every day they sent most people that most people don't do that.
Some of those keyboard warriors that living under the mom ba*****t that Oh, man, they those were once, You know, I'm not knocking people that did the black out of the house. Armed black lives matter.
Thank the ones on the field.
They don't want that, you know, doing doing what I'm doing.
What I know that you're doing.
You know, if you know Simeon, then you know what he's really doing.
Talk about, you know, he's a sellout.
Are What are you doing, man? Stop that B s that? Because thes partly the same dude living on the imam ba*****t.
When the Cheetos ready, I really worry about them.
Wait, about those wear about, man, we gotta keep moving and we're gonna keep china, you know, help you become active in whichever way you could become active in and we'll keep.
We'll keep We'll keep doing things with the foot still warm or Quicksand BK, Everything we were supposed to have a benefit basketball game was supposed to be coming up this month.
Obviously it got cancelled due to cold with 19.
It was gonna be active Boys and Girls Club in Queens.
Hopefully, once this is all over will be generated.
SportsCastr is going to be there doing the live stream.
All the funds, they're gonna go to the Boys and Girls Club.
Hopefully we'll be able to bring that back and you are help participate.
She just says one real quick, just Brooke.
But I gotta go One thing real quick.
I just send a chat for a hooter's air doing its stuff.
Now remember, in a few years, a slowly drenched or five almost fall in New York.
New York is being one of the places I like.
It's unaffordable for a lot of black and Hispanic people live.
Remember this When all these politicians left, all right, they're gonna slowly find ways and move you out.
And this is health justifying.
That's what I'm saying.
And maybe some of these golden stuff.
All the zoning laws of more more buildings.
And they look at your project building and they literally take away.
They basically force you out.
They take it, they make you go to court.
And this happens in my cousin.
Even if we don't live in a project living some cold.
But Williams, something doing is 11 70 Southport.
You could check it out.
They'll find ways to movie out with us to screw you over your succession rights.
They're gonna trust me.
They're gonna find ways to move a lot of you out.
So that little laptop computer you have whatever.
When you are in, say, a few years from now and say they haven't moved out from your mom's place, she wants to give you that place.
When he started basically having laws.
And I'm talking about Democrats and Republicans in Europe, a weapon.

You're being let him in some place that you don't want.
Just trust their us, understand? Understand that the more I listen and I'm just being honestly from my heart, you know, when I see that somebody you know did whatever to a police car and this net I'm like, You know what? I don't condone violence or looting or any of that.
But the anger is at least targeted in the right direction.
OK, when you are in your own community and you turned down your own community and I know people say what community? We don't own anything.
But I'm not speaking in the community in the sense of ownership.
I'm speaking in the community and a sense of everyone living in the same general area.
Okay, uh, there's different definitions of community right now.
We have a nothing but next community of people on speaking community and that sense.
So let's say in your neighborhood, when you destroy those buildings in your neighborhood or these other people come in and destroy the buildings in your neighborhood, you have these real estate ty****s looking watching, and they're gonna come up a ***.
They're going to come in and buy these buildings for pennies on the dollar, which is just gonna aid identification of that neighborhood.
Believe it, I'm telling you, you go see the neighborhood that was a black neighborhood in Washington D C that was torched with Dr King Don assassinated.
We'll see it now.

Um, this is what they want, Please.
And I'm not condoning violence him.
