00:00:00however I'm having another round

00:01:16and I do believe we might be playing a little drunk in the beta 2
00:01:21I don't know about y'all but nothing says holiday to me like reading a poem out of a comically large storybook
00:01:35poem children's is called
00:01:39Twas the night before cons
00:01:46what are dreamy hardcore Heaven are you ready him and him Twas the night before Kwanza when all through the house not a creature was stirring not even a mouse the kinara was set on the mantle so black but the kids just wanted Santa Claus to come back
00:02:09Nepeta
00:02:12that wasn't part of the pain management the yunginz were nestled all snug in their beds while nightmares of Sandra Lee Kwanzaa cake dance and then um I cannot I cannot scary shit
00:02:29when out in the driveway there arose such a roar a spring from the bed when I heard a car door it was a Cutlass Supreme from 1988
00:02:40it had dark tinted windows and Georgia plate
00:02:48I snuck into the living room to see what was happening and they're so a man in fantastic fashion avalor tracksuit a kente cloth do-rag and African Medallion he trips with swag
00:03:04this man said A man was ever so flashy and when he stepped out the chimney he wasn't even ask you where
00:03:13Chris do not smudge his skin how it gleamed he was born in a vat of cocoa butter theme
00:03:21the room smelled of menthols Old Spice and bourbon
00:03:26so much so that I thought it was my uncle Herman
00:03:30how do you season a while so you know Uncle Herman that asked him in a voice to and it's small and is go to Clinton as he simply said now
00:03:43unexpected reindeer and sleigh and Santa not this old head and Old Spice from the city of Atlanta
00:03:51demanded explain yourself you just some random black dude not a jolly old elf watch your mouth you said and I saw his go-to it's time someone told you that the truth
00:04:05you need to know that your precious Santa Claus is a fake and a liar a phony and a fraud it's true that's what it says he told me a story from the days of his youth when he was very young chaput holiday school the tag create a holiday a brand new tradition and a black ass day with his special ambition in African culture devoid of racism no superficiality no capitalism we make our own gift and honor ancestors the true meaning of love and giving weed remember
00:04:40what a bomb ass I did something everyone need it well Santa Claus heard it and apparently agreed did
00:04:51you know my whole idea started calling at Christmas and then he turned it into a billion dollar business his face was everywhere on billboards and Coke bottles he got rich off my shit Youngblood now ain't that awful
00:05:05I wasn't in it for the money my picture wasn't that small I wanted you to be some termination Collective work and responsibility corporate economics perfect creativity and say for us

00:05:41we don't what's up by then later we don't need to message
00:05:48he simply gave me an odd instead of an answer he even stole his reindeer names he said my cat is named is Prancer
00:05:56no honor among Thieves
00:06:00as well they should be
00:06:03stood there in the doorway unsure of what I've seen does classic Claus really exist or was it all just a dream
00:06:11I thought I made it up but there beneath the tree was a bottle of cocoa butter with the tag made out to me
00:06:19he was real I would put as I lotion my bowl

00:16:16you better
00:16:21hey hi your sock say let's get lit so we're about to get a little t2t as the children to thank you for being here with us this year it sucks it was really bad it's been real bad outside for a minute like this year was not good we were struggling to find a silver lining I just had a feeling to somebody who had the the great fortune in addition to all the hard work they got you not and MacArthur genius Grant which is crazy genius know some shit that happened that was not completely horrible someone makes me feel like maybe we did a bad job booking this second
00:17:22heaven give me something to not hate 2017 about what was a good thing I know right and okay listen let me see what did not suck in 2017 so last this time last year I was like on the America's favorite dynamic duo depression and anxiety yes answer my old friends so I feel like last Kwanzaa I was thinking mostly about the depression just called them like this was hoping society and I feel like you are like depression friend anyways
00:18:04so that your husband trash yes it's true but Silver Lining therapy 2018 therapy therapy have you heard that is a fantastic thing is also good in 2017 winner yes ma'am no I didn't know you got to work tonight in the Illuminati do you get like Genius Bar points discounts like you and lin-manuel drinking a secret bar what's going to be
00:18:54you know where we're at
00:18:57unlimited Hennessy
00:19:02I can go to any bar in America and I get free Hennessy now okay let's go buy you some Hennessy if I had the money but I don't we were recently on desus and Mero and you're talking about and obviously I know who nominated me for a MacArthur genius Grant because I am obviously a bum
00:19:39I can't reveal my sources
00:19:45either no one's asked me to nominate anyone but you would definitely be somewhere somewhere I see what you did there I just want you to know that I see you have an adorable daughter I do I've met her she's lovely what do you think her Silver Lining would be
00:20:13yeah good question we're professional
00:20:18I mean my daughter's whole life is a silver lining right
00:20:24one my dad like whoops me with a belt like once a week so I don't know where the new school. We don't we talk things out we have discussion right mad cuz she doesn't have the same number of Jordans is me like her worries I'm very different from the worries that I had right I mean literally like my dad was born on sharecropping Farm in Mississippi like my daughter her experience is just so what do I do if I tell her like my dad was very mean and I talked to her a lot about
00:21:06are you fat
00:21:14and other day she was we were putting that we have ordered it to my dad passed away two years ago we have an ornament with his picture and we were putting on the tree and she was like maybe Papa was mad because we he was growing up like you wouldn't have rights to fight Brandon my baby right
00:21:31better than over mine is old and she was like she understood maybe some of his anger and I was 7 years alarm that is amazing that's a silver lining okay so definitely knows Donald Trump probably shouldn't be in office at 7 to understand that that's not my opinion that's hers for my own opinion that is a fantastic Silver Lining that there are people who are raising their babies to be woke waking up the baby. And I have the same rainbow black as fuck
00:22:13I love it can I give a silver lining for me one of the things that is literally kept me going this year when I was just like fuck it I'm just going to sit here and Order seamless until nobody ever finds seeing both of my personal life in the fantasy life I've created for myself I know Beyonce is seeing black women glow up
00:22:42it has been such a good reminder like watching ether with insecure and her being on the red carpet to straight up like I want everyone black to win but that's what it is. Like a screw amazing watching her little up you being therapy that's a blowout
00:23:04friend of the show Nicole Perkins and Bam who is here somewhere there new show starts a kid it was just like a infant like watching that is amazing watching the black woman getting awarded am a guy through jeans brand is fucking amazing and it really is a thing that keeps me going also another blow up that actually is ruining my life a little bit but I still love it it's sza in her last album
00:23:38so the more washed I get the less I keep up with the new music that the kids are listening to right now
00:23:52I admit it I don't care whatever fight me but since his album is like the last like release I listen to when it came out and it just it tears me apart and then it puts me back together and it tears me apart again then you put me back together
00:24:13for example this is a sacrifice I'm making for y'all can we listen to a snippet of Love Galore so you can see what happens to me when sza comes on I'm not even better
00:24:26YouTube
00:24:42shut up that's all right all right
00:24:46how do you say can we what thank you thank you up black women blowing up have you another silver lining for us I do is bougie though
00:25:03I know y'all in the building I don't know nothing about that we got we gotta we had a woman really considering having it she loves in the first Friday and this is what dr. king fought for this year I have achieved Diamond status on Delta
00:25:29what is that mean what does that even mean now I know what that means
00:25:38Los plebes we are playing we are about to win coach like a mother fucker. All right y'all proletarians wouldn't understand what that means
00:25:49wow you're right though we are
00:25:52amphetamines I talk to coach but I ride first class
00:25:59what the fuck happens in first class yeah I have like individual like like like turkey dinners and my turkey now
00:26:09one before y'all get on the plane I'm having my Prosecco
00:26:15for y'all get all the playing time tonight before y'all get on the plane I'll have my ready way before we even start acting in the right
00:26:24we have our first class bathroom where I'm like your bathrooms back there
00:26:30and I said will you don't pay for the first class ticket to get more fucking bougie right
00:26:41I feel coach just looking at looking at me I don't want to bring my car to there today and I forgot I had not noticed that all I wonder why people have to walk past me to go to coach
00:27:02alright alright well I'm sipping my Prosecco and I'm like get your keys back there
00:27:12okay you know what at first I was mad but now I'm back on track driver that was good that's that's why I want to find first class mail Diamond stats never going to happen for no reason TSA regulations
00:27:43I don't know what that part don't work but anyways give us one more thing to be optimistic about that happened in 2017 the one that thing is so I'mma write about school segregation for about 5 years exclusively that is my beat yes
00:28:05yeah, for segregation or gasket
00:28:18show me Choppers furniture
00:28:28but what I can say is there's some movement that I didn't expect I'm very pessimistic I don't expect that you know why she will send me be like only shoot his phone let me enroll my child in school but what I can say is I have been contacted by politicians both at the local level and the federal level who now want to actually try to figure out what can I do about segregation and that's pretty amazing there is a silver lining is that we are finally like not ignoring what we're doing two children and deciding that we are at least going to in some way try to efface in a dress that and that's an actual silver lining
00:29:06it doesn't sound crazy but that honestly did give me hope for the fucking future because we took a little bit everybody feels more hopeful now yes we have is going to therapy
00:29:30so thank you once more to one of my favorite people in the world with a debate will they gave Nicole Hanna Jones is showing at the even in a trash ass year the stupid shit out there you might need a really big name in Minecraft to find it but it's out there give her a round of applause.
