Jonathan May makes his return to the Q to discuss more about Black and White relations in the USA. The show gets off to fast start when Mark and Jonathan discuss blackface and how it still has this racist connotation to it. This of course leads to a deeper discussion about racial relations in the USA and what is considered racist by some is not considered racist by others. Whose right? Well we don't know cause Brandon Travis jumps on the show and immediately throws the conversation for a loop with very viable arguments regarding race in America.
Also the guys discuss Denzel Washington and his ability to get oscar nods, but then it's brought up that maybe other roles were more deserving of Denzel to get oscars for. Was Training Day his best, or was it Glory. All this plus a very tiny discussion on Trump and firing Tillerson in this exciting episode of the Q.
A few years ago, The Artist won Best Picture at the Academy awards. To Mark it was for no good reason. The 2018 Oscars just happened and the show was the lowest rated in history. Was it too much focus on women? Was it Jimmy Kimmel? Was it the need for the Hollywood elite to hold on to tradition too much?
All of these things are discussed between Jason Kull, Gary Weed and Mark Bland on this episode of the Q. Plus, are we on the edge of another financial crisis....someone whose very rich and well known thinks so. The guys discuss this and a bevy of other topics including Mark's covering of the MVC Tournament (aka Arch Madness) and some things he took away from it.
