In case you missed it, the hosts discussed Beyoncé’s incredible performance at Coachella, where she highlighted HBCU and African American culture at one of the Whitest music festivals. As racial tensions continue to plague the country, the Queen used her platform to bring awareness, highlight the culture and support our people. In fact, she was also the first black woman to headline the concert and she killed it. As if we expected anything less. Congratulations and Thank you, Queen!
As the segment continued, the hosts discussed the injustice involving Meek Mill’s case, where he was sentenced to 2-4 years in prison for probation violation. However, it was recently announced that the arresting officer was listed as one of the most corrupt cops in Philly, which prompted the legal team to pursue a new trial. However, the controversial judge on the case shut it down. So, he will have to stay in jail until his next hearing in June. What are your thoughts?
Then, the hosts discussed the Philly Starbucks incident, where two black men were arrested for sitting and waiting for their friends inside the store.
