You try to give them the benefit of the doubt, because at least they're not Peter Rosenberg, and then they pull some shit like this.
Black feminists were upset because Charlamagne tha God was filmed walking down the street with Tomi Lahren, an adorable, racist young CAC, and so he allowed a couple of them to come on the Breakfast Club and basically say whatever TF they wanted to say, regardless of whether or not it was true.
It wasn't that big of a deal, because these things are just YouTube videos (very few of their interviews actually air on the radio, as far as I know); probably not many people had a look, and most of the ones who did probably cut it off after a minute or two, once the guests began speaking.
The guests, in particular, were a girl who vaguely resembles Jocelyn Wildenstein, and a girl who vaguely resembles the late, great Miss Melodie, from BDP. One of them is a glorified blogger at a black-interest website that's yet to launch, and the other one is the host of a podcast she kept trying to plug.
Their objection to Charlamagne walking down the street with Tomi Lahren, as discussed in last week's edition of Life in a Shanty Town, was purely self-serving in nature.
Of course they disagree with what she says, but the purpose of bitching and moaning about it on Twitter was to get on the show themselves and thus boost their own personal brands. If there's a way the black community would benefit from this, it wasn't made clear in the interview.
Implicit in the argument that the Breakfast Club should have more black feminists on the show, rather than Tomi Lahren, is the threat that if they don't, black feminists will somehow try to have show taken off the air. Presumably, that was the real reason this interview happened in the first place.
The thing that bothers me the most about them even having those girls up there is that why would you give a platform to someone who's threatening to take food from your kids' mouths? I believe it was Curtis "Booger" Armstrong who said, in a sluggish economy don't fuck with a man's livelihood.
Strategically, their best bet would have been to invite them up to the studio and then pay someone to kneecap them on the way there. (I mean that facetiously, but only to the extent that it's illegal to suggest such a thing on the Internets.)
The guests seemed to take credit for the colossal failure of Nate Parker's Birth of a Nation, even though black people wouldn't have seen it anyway unless it was about a black man in a dress or a black woman who's being abused by a guy who looks like a closet-case anyway.
The conversation got more ridiculous as it went on. It was claimed that black men are the number-two cause of death for black women, which can't possibly be true. Almost every black woman I'm related to is dead, and none of them were killed by black men. I guess they're all statistical anomalies.
In a sad bit of humble-bragging, one of the guests says she doesn't work for Planned Parenthood, but she's been in panel discussions with people who work there. While black women who get abortions are depicted as being trifling, she says, most of them already have kids. As if that would preclude them from being trifling.
Also, it's suggested that the disproportionate number of black women getting abortions could be a matter of black men not being able to put a condom on correctly. Miss Melodie offered to give a demonstration. The hosts seemed taken aback, not unlike when Angela Yee was prompted to come out as a rape survivor.
Hopefully, the sheer awkwardness of such interactions, as well as the fact that they had very little that was either true or interesting to say, will prevent them from making a repeat appearance.
Ideally, the hosts would apologize for wasting our time with this bullshit and then bring Tomi Lahren up there, but I appreciate the fact that they're trying to run a business.
