So Trayvon Martin & the Boston Marathon Bomber…

What’s that you say? Those 2 people couldn’t possibly be in the same sentence? Well then you must not understand how the radical right wing mind works…

This is real life: Limbaugh compared media coverage of Boston Marathon Bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev to the media coverage of the murdered unarmed 17 year old Trayvon Martin–since they’re described as kids and younger pictures were posted. Obviously this is some sort of huge attempt to show the innocents of these 2 criminals!

Except for that pesky being stalked & killed for no reason thing that happened to one of them.

On today’s #TWiBRadio I drop this little tidbit on the rest of the team with out warning–they weren’t ready. Also, we remember the ‘Four Little Girls’ of Birmingham 50 years later, Dr. Norma J. Goodwin of HealthPowerforMinorities.com discusses Minority Health Awareness Month, and more. Listen here:

How Hip Hip is Supposed to Sound

On today’s #TWiBRadio, we’re joined by master lyricist Jasiri X who offered a retort to yesterday’s discussion of the state of hip-hop and we spend some time skewering our favorite talking butter sculpture, Rush Limbaugh.

So Apparently Raping is Really Cool Now, huh.

Seriously, we’re just describing rape now.

On today’s #TWiBRadio, we discussed America’s pervasive rape culture, the indefensibility of the defensive anti-gay marriage stance, and I’ve got ideas for another new project.

And this morning on #amTWiB, #TheMorningCrew were joined once again by Imani Gandy of the Angry Black Lady Chronicles to discuss the outing of the Obama daughters on vacation, whether we’re doing all we can for American veterans, and the politics of lazy ass glaciers.

Rush Limbaugh, Rap Genius.

And with this, Rush Limbaugh proves you too can rustle papers and say everything wrong and continue to make millions. Lesson learned.

Also, today is the first ever International Happiness Day, but should the state be responsible for providing happiness? On today’s #TWiBRadio, we discuss the politics of happiness, more Iraq War statistics, and we’re joined by Mrs. Emily Epstein-White for her take on sugar daddies and indecent proposals.
