Tony Cabral makes his triumphant return to the Q after a bit of a hiatus. Living in Chicago doesn't afford him the opportunity to be on the greatest show ever...but we make do.
First up, Mark is dealing with a ton of censoring from the social media lately because of his show regarding black and white culture and the movie Black Panther. He has weened it down to specific people trying to censor him directly cause they are quite angry about the message getting out which doesn't play to these peoples narratives. Mark and Tony discuss what happened and why it seems over the top.
Mark and Tony also discuss the ability to "swat" people who you are mad at from far away and how this is becoming a very dangerous trend in the USA. This leads into a discussion about allegiance to the USA and allegiance to Trump. Where is the allegiance to our country and not your political party?
All this and more available on this episode of the Q.
Tony Cabral joins the show for the first time in a long while. First up the two guys discuss this whole Trump phenomena and how we exactly got to this point. Discussing Colbert and Kimmel recently taken it to Trump and whether or not they were just in their statements.
Next the aura of the Confederacy still being a talking point after a lady was killed in Charlottesville and more protesting in Boston. Is there value to that rag the Confederates call a flag? What do statues have to do with 2017? And how long will this petulant baby whining the conservatives are constantly doing about their freedom of things. At this point it seems like everything has been taken away from them and really nothing has. Plus INDIANS/NATIVE AMERICANS get discussed.
Finally Mark and Tony dig into a solid discussion of Jean Twenge new book I-Gen and an interview Tony saw regarding the breakdown of what this newest generation definition means. But where exactly does Gen-X, Gen-Y/millennials and the I-Gen start and stop.

And finally, Mark pulls back the 4th wall and decide to discuss some listener hate mail that was, lets just say...extremely and overwhelmingly negative and coarse in its language.

On this episode of the show, we get down and dirty with the political positions that Obama and Romney are going to argue about as they gather new votes for the upcoming elections later this year. But why sis we do this, well it was because Mark was joined by typical partner in crime Matt Krueger and young Tenacious Taryn D. Taryn is going to be voting for the first time this fall and the two wanted him to have a solid base for the decision he was making. But that is secondary to the show starting and ending with a bang!
