Today Shaun gives us clear action steps to stop the conviction of an innocent man BEFORE he is convicted. Then he gives us some commentary on the horrible bailout package that was passed and says what our country really should've done instead.
For months, NY Governor Andrew Cuomo and NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio have been ignoring the professional advice of virtually every civil rights, human rights and public health organization in the city in regard to the hellhole of a jail known as Rikers. On today's episode, Shaun breaks down how they have directly caused a completely avoidable catastrophe in Rikers and gives us some action steps.
Experts believe that within the next 10 days, the United States -- not China, Italy, or Spain -- will have the most cases of Covid-19 worldwide. On today's episode, Shaun breaks down seven reasons why African Americans are actually at a much higher risk of contracting the coronavirus as it spreads across the country.
In 3 straight polls, the majority of Americans now say they believe Donald Trump is doing a good job of handling the Covid-19 pandemic. The near complete absence of Joe Biden during this time created a vacuum for this to happen.
On today's special episode of The Breakdown we celebrate everyone who has come this far with us and hear from our listeners on what they love most about the podcast.
In the next few days, government leaders on every level are going to be making long term decisions on how to fight back against the coronavirus. We need to make sure we tell them what that agenda need to be.
We've entered into a phase of this pandemic where politicians and corporations are thinking on how they can use this crisis for their financial and political gain. Trump and conservatives are doing something that could prove perilous for Democrats.
Today is Shaun's daughter, Kendi, turns 18 years old, but is stuck in the house, with school canceled, and everything else canceled as well. Today, Shaun talks about how the coronavirus is going to impact not just his family, but America's children.
All over the country we need cities and states to immediately stop evictions and the shutting off of utilities. Smart cities are already doing this. Is yours?
Colleges and schools are closed. Thousands of businesses have shut down. People are afraid and they are out of work. We're forming our own mutual aid society to help one another. Listen and join us today.
The coronavirus is going to impact the most vulnerable people and communities among us. Today Shaun starts to unpack what that's going to mean for America's jails and prisons.
The NBA season was just suspended. Tom Hanks has the coronavirus. The NCAA tournament is going to be played without fans. And the President is still a complete idiot. Today will go down in history as the first day the entire nation fully understood the impact of the Coronavirus.
Today Shaun unpacks and explains the impact of colleges and universities shutting down for the coronavirus across the country. Also, he shares some thoughts on the elections yesterday and closes with painful audio of the aftermath of a police shooting in Raleigh. Plus, our first woman crush Wednesday segment.
On this special episode of The Breakdown Shaun unpacks and explains why The United States is in a particularly dangerous position with the coronavirus and what we can do about it.
Working with the family of Nate Woods this weekend, Shaun noticed one big difference between an execution and a case of police violence. Today he unpacks it for us.
Yesterday, the state of Alabama murdered an innocent man. On today's episode, Shaun unpacks this painful ordeal. We are devastated, but unfortunately we are not surprised.
In hours, the State of Alabama is set to execute a man they fully know never killed a single soul in his life. It's a legal lynching. Listen, then go to SaveNate.com to fight back to stop this. We can't give up!!
Shaun unpacks and explains his thoughts on Super Tuesday, Bloomberg dropping out, and our fight to save Nate Woods

Today is Super Tuesday, but the biggest thing on my mind is saving the life of Nate Woods, who’s scheduled to be executed in this Thursday. We have new action steps for you to take at SaveNate.com.
Nathaniel Woods. Say his name. He is scheduled to be executed on Thursday, but he didn't even pull the trigger. Nobody says he did. And the shooter says he had nothing to do with the crime.

This is horrible. Are these adults in education listening to this child cry and do nothing? You never have to do this.

Re ep100: it's amazing how much of these facts were glossed over, "mis-named" or ultimately hidden by mainstream media. Feels like we're back in the wild wild west right now, with vigilantes and all. Evidently it sounds like that's exactly where we're headed. WTAF. 😤🤯☠️😱

Thank you for another great episode. One correction though is that fighting for the climate being seen as white eliminates the Indigenous populations that have been fighting for the same for a very very very long time...

These "whisper campaigns" have threads that cannot be traced to sources and confirmed. Look at the work and the actions of the Families. They haven't mobilized against Shaun. We should be ashamed.

Stay Strong! When you do selfless work SELFISH folks are blinded by their fears, jealousies and envy. Good, excellent character will stand for you, will witness for you. Remain patient and steadfast. May Allah Protect you, your Family and your work.

I love the book club idea. for some people it might be helpful to start with What Does It Mean to be White by Robin DiAngelo....or a book that addresses whiteness in an equally methodical way. thx
