    What segment are you referring to specifically? Your description doesn’t sound like an accurate representation of anything I can recall from the show.

    Being a liberal and non white, and I still got pretty sad, offended and angry when this lady doing the show said she didnt have any answers and she is certainly not talking to any whites anymore. That attitude only creates violence. You cant go through life with that tremendous anger You are scaring your listeners.
