When you stop to take a look around at the world in which we live, how can anyone deny that there is a guilty consciousness in our midst? We mindlessly allow those who have the most money, the most authority, and the most power to abuse the least among us. The masses are far too comfortable embracing those injustices that keep us bound, in favor of the delusion that we too might have our turn at bat.
Heit & Cheri are here to tell you to get up off your arse, and stop pandering to those who don’t care about your well being. Topics discussed include an analysis of the song, “No Church In The Wild,” by Jay-Z and Kanye West, Gwyneth Paltrow in hot water for making the comment “Niggas in Paris for real,” George Zimmerman’s return to jail for lying about
everything that falls out of his filthy mouth his finances, Tierra Brown missing her graduation while being locked up for a murder she didn’t commit, Dallas Police shoot John Husband III in the back, Elizabeth Olivas making her graduation after being detained in Mexico for weeks with an immigration issue that was no fault of her own, WI Governor Scott Walker getting to keep his job, Florida defying U.S. Department of Justice’s demand to stop purging voter rolls, Queen Elizabeth’s Diamond Jubilee, and the unemployed people she made sleep under London Bridge to work during her festivities.

- Discussion of Miami Heat vs. Boston Celtics in the NBA Playoffs. Heit rooted for the Celtics because those are the old school players he grew up watching–like Kevin Garnett.
- Heit & Cheri have a little argument over the video for No Church In The Wild by Jay-Z and Kanye West. Heit felt that the protest/revolutionary theme of the video didn’t match the song’s lyrics. On the other hand, Cheri felt that a loose case could be made for a correlation between the two.
- Brief analysis of the lyrics to the first verse of No Church in the Wild. Cheri mentions that battling the police was symbolic of battling the societal structure, while Heit feels that Kanye’s performance was his usual approach and glorification of the lifestyle.
- Cheri thinks Kanye was also talking about having sexual freedom–the “new religion” that Kanye speaks of is the way to this freedom.
- Both agree that there is some disconnect that causes the entire song to be somewhat contradictory.
- Discussion about how Kanye West’s mother’s death affected his music.
- Mention of how Kanye West, Jay-Z, and others can’t seem to get away from accusations of being affiliated with the Illumaniti. We talked about the Illumaniti in Episode 004: Don’t Make Me Eat Your Philosophy. Be sure to check it out.
- Conversation about how many people have trouble speaking English the same way as the mainstream does. Heit & Cheri discuss whether it is better to fake it or just keep it real.
- Gwyneth Paltrow is in hot water for making the comment “Niggas in Paris for real” while on stage with Jay-Z. The criticism is warranted, because she shouldn’t feel so comfortable using those words.
- Discussion about “A lil getoff.”
- George Zimmerman is back in jail because his lies about money were exposed, which led to his bond being revoked.
- Discussion about George Zimmerman lying about having a second passport in his possession while out on bond.
- Zimmerman has played the ignorance card throughout this case. He claims not to have known how old Trayvon was before he shot him, he claimed to have no money, and he claimed he had surrendered his only passport–ALL lies!
- Discussion about an honor student who missed her graduation because she was in jail for a murder she didn’t commit.
- Why weren’t people outraged because she was locked up without evidence to show that she was the person the police were looking for?
- John Husband III was shot in the back by the Dallas police. Of course, the officer says it was self defense, but too many things about the story don’t sound right. The Dallas Police Department claims to be conducting an internal investigation while the officer is on paid leave.
- A reminder of the prevalence of police brutality, as evidence in our recent video about Joe Biden’s connections to the prison industrial complex.
- The officer in question had no complaints against him, and the DPD makes sure to mention that the victim had prior arrests/convictions.
- People always say, “You shouldn’t run from the police.” Is running justification for murder?
- Reminder about the Dane Scott Jr. case, in which a young Black male was shot in the back by police. Scott’s family discussed the charges here.
- Discussion about honor student, Elizabeth Olivas, who was stuck in Mexico because leap year caused her to miss a deadline with immigration by one day. What if she was an average student? Would she have still been granted the necessary waiver to go back home?
- This issue highlights the need to help children who are not citizens, but have lived most of their lives in the U.S. These children should have a way to complete citizenship documentation.
- Heit & Cheri thank those who have donated to support the new website (TheyAlwaysGetAway.com), which houses all of the files associated with the Trayvon Martin / George Zimmerman case. We need you help, so please consider a one-time donation or a subscription to help the cause!
- Discussion of Congresswoman Gwen Moore’s song and dance to rally support for the recall of Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker.
- Why does it always have to be “us” shucking and jiving? Heit explains that this is due to the comfort of both Blacks and whites having Blacks serve as entertainers.
- Scott Walker won the recall election because he spent seven times that of his opponent, Tom Barrett (Milwaukee Mayor). The election is touted as being a preview of Mitt Romney vs. Barack Obama in Wisconsin.
- Brief discussion about the 2012 presidential general election.
- When Scott Walker got rid of the unions, he got rid of major donors to the democratic candidates in Wisconsin.
- Wisconsin will need to heal from the division resulting from this recall. There’s an article on the site that discusses reasons to recall Walker.
- Florida defies U.S. Department of Justice’s demand to stop purging voter rolls of people who may not be citizens. They have ruled Florida’s actions a form of voter suppression. The things they are doing are not for the greater good, and there’s a reason why they want to cleanse the rolls of these voters.
- Would Obama be cool to hang out with? Heit doesn’t think so. Cheri thinks that if Obama were to stop in for a visit, it would be a different story.
- Discussion of Queen Elizabeth’s Diamond Jubilee–she’s been on the throne fo 60 years, but what has she done besides rule over people? She is actually the ruler of the world, and the U.S is under that umbrella.
- Cheri discovered that the patriotic song, “America (My Country, ‘Tis of Thee)” is actually a remake of God Save the Queen (British National Anthem). That’s right, instead of making their own song, during the Revolutionary War, people decided to do a remake with some new words. How lame!
- Heit talks about trying out for the choir in fourth grade. He had to sing this same song for the tryout. He does a quick rendition on the show.
- What has the Queen even done? She’s done nothing but sit on a throne, and people think that is deserving of celebration? Why do the masses always look up to people who oppress them? You can’t be a humanitarian while praising people who are the cause of the suffering we see in the world.
- A group of unemployed people were bussed to London and made to sleep under London Bridge to work as unpaid stewards for the diamond jubilee. They worked 14-hour shifts and were made to change and use the restroom outside. At one point, they had no access to restrooms for 24 hours.
- These were terrible conditions, but the workers were afraid they’d lose their unemployment benefits if they left and didn’t work. They were also threatened with not being offered work for the 2012 Olympics.
