Podcast and Friends

Very special episode of FDPDOCNBAP here, as Dan and Ken seek refuge from the NBA dog days by chopping it up with Bomani Jones on those intertwined subjects of sports, race, media. You know, that easy stuff that total strangers always get together to discuss over Skype. Thanks to Bomani for coming onβ€”I sat this one out mostly because I just wanted to sit back and listen to the finished product.


"Loving" β€” William Shatner and Ben Folds
"Pot Kettle Black" β€” Wilco
"Will It Go Round in Circles?" β€” Billy Preston

Bomani speaks truth.

Not that truth is not normally uttered on this blog...but he needs to be a fixture on this show.

I am going to start using "haterific nonsense" regularly.

Skype is annoying.

We may have to invest in something better.

That "disconnect" that was discussed is a result of people simply not wanting to make an effort. I hear my co-workers (I teach at a hs) say all the time that they miss the student population the school used to have. Well, the population used to be white middle to upper class, and, now, it's not any more. Still, there are thousands of ways to relate to a person aside from race and income level. One just has to make the effort to find them and avoid making the broad assumptions that Bomani warns against.

Great discussion, but, in defense of the public schools, it's hard sometimes to undo everything that parents and society have done to "mess up" their kids, before those kids even set foot in the school. Schools, acting alone, can only stick a thumb in the flood of society's problems. It's difficult to teach a student to read and write analytically when one discovers the student is pregnant and the student's father is also the father of their own child or that another student committed a double homicide. We often forget how much schools are asked to do for our kids.

Anyway, good talk and don't worry about not being funny this time.

Teach, I agree with you for the most part. Effort and understanding, as cheeky as they sound, have always been the serums for ignorance.

Great podcast. Great discussion. This LA guy enjoyed it thoroughly.
