“Brilliant Idiots” And “Combat Jack” Debate The Existence Of White Privilege
In a (at times heated) debate with Reggie Osse and Premium Pete of the Combat Jack podcast over the existence of white privilege and systematic racism and how Black responsibility lies in the balance, “Brilliant Idiots” hosts Charlamagne and Andrew Shulz say Blacks should hold ourselves exclusively accountable for the state of our communities. In addition to asserting that we not point fingers at white privilege or racism for holding us back, they state that we should be far more concerned with Black on Black violence than anything cops are doing to us.
It’s a long podcast (right at two hours) but HIGHLY worth the listen up to the final points they have to make:
SMH…doesn’t sound like either show caught the other’s point over the entire two-hour chat. What do you think? Do we let the concept of “white privilege” hold us back? Is there a valid space to discuss Black on Black crime while seeking justice for racially-motivated police violence?
