(Ep. 254) #TSRP “We On The Lodge With It?”

Episode 254 of #TSRP starts right In The News as the woman who appeared in the viral video licking the top of an open ice cream container, and putting it back on the shelf has been identified. Could she really be facing up to 20 years in jail? Donald Chump seems to be trying an end around maneuver around the Supreme Court, as they debate the constitutionality of adding a citizenship question to the 2020 Census. He plans to try to get the question on the forms by Executive Order. And after a group of young people shut down the Lodge Freeway in Detroit to perform donuts and burnouts, the viral video of the even has resulted in 1 arrested, 6 others being sought by law enforcement, the woman who posted the video now being harassed, and t-shirts being sold and songs being made. Only in Detroit???

We move on to Blue Blazes, where the organizers of the Straight Pride Parade called in a bomb threat over glitter. African American actress Halle Bailey has been cast as Ariel in the new live action Disney movie The Little Mermaid, and white people across the internet lost their collective minds. And Lil Nas X came out as a gay man. Prompting many to start trying to reinterpret his music. Weird I know.

Then it’s off to Proud To Be An American, where a Hawaii man went to his prison sentence hearing wearing black face. Do you think they threw the book at him? And Arizona Governor Doug Doucey has cancelled all incentives for Nike to move a manufacturing facility to the state after they cancelled the release of a pair of shoes featuring the Betsy Ross designed United States flag. Nike cancelled the release after Colin Kaepernick and many other complained about it’s connection to slavery era America, and it’s current appropriation by white nationalist groups.

Then of course before we leave you, we got to give you our AssHat & Champ of The Week announcements! So lets get to it people with the Real Talk, ALL The Time, here on The Spann Report!

(Ep. 253) #TSRP “When The $h*t Hits The Stand”

Here on episode 253 of #TSRP we hop right In The News. As many as 94 police officers from both the St. Louis and Philadelphia Police Departments have been sidelined or put on restrictive duty after an investigation found many of those officers posting racist status updates and memes on Facebook. Many more could be met with the same fate as three other city police departments were included in the investigation. The Jussie Smollett saga continues, as a Judge has ruled to re-open the investigation into his alleged hate crime hoax, and Chicago Police have released all of the evidence they have against him to the public. And Presidential candidate and South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigeig is under fire after a deadly police shooting in his town. What could this mean for his Presidential hopes, and has his previous comments about “identity politics” affected his response to this incident?

Then we move on to Blue Blazes, as Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood star Teairra Mari has been arrested for drunk driving. It’s alleged that she was driving a car with only three wheels y’all. In Detroit, a pair of 61 year old twins stepped into a Coney Island restaurant, and shot up the place over fried mushrooms? And in Newton County Georgia, a set of Crips have suddenly popped up. Or have they??? Some new tagging may suggest so, but something about it just doesn’t seem right. And a man went before a judge and he came bearing gifts. Only NOBODY would want what he was freely giving. We even get some Cheaper To Keep Her, and Sexy Time!

We then go to Proud To Be And American, where a Michigan hotel is now offering free lodging for women who travel to the state to have an abortion. In Illinois, the new Recreational Marijuana law will vacate over 770K Marijuana related convictions. And in Fresno, CA a church lost their ability to be a polling place because of their Black Lives Matter banner outside of the church. They’re now suing to get it back. Will they prevail?

And then of course you know, we will be closing out the show with our AssHat & Champ of The Week announcements. So let’s get to it with the Real Talk, All The Time right here on The Spann Report!

(Ep. 252) #TSRP “You Wonder Why They Call You Trash… Pt. 2”

Two episodes this week, dig THAT! We’re back with our regular live show tonight, and we hop into some of Spann’s random thoughts for the week, and we thank those of you who have signed up for our Patreon! That’s a hell of a birthday gift. Then we hop In The News as Michigan Governor, Gretchen Whitmer proclaims Juneteenth to be a celebration day in Michigan. Previous Democratic Governor, Jennifer Granholm had already signed the law declaring it as a holiday, but how many people actually know about it? San Francisco District Attorney’s Office is trying something new. “Blind Prosecutions” and it’s bringing it about after a study found that black alleged offenders were often charged more often, and more harshly than their white counterparts. What would happen if the prosecutor didn’t know the race of the assailants? And in Phoenix, A black couple was confronted with guns by police after their 4 year old child walked out of an area Dollar Store with a Barbie doll they didn’t pay for. The police reports don’t match the videos of what happened on the scene, and now that couple is suing to the tune of $10 million. And they have a heavyweight in their corner now, his name is Jay-Z. He’s pledged to help them with legal aid in their fight against the Phoenix Police Department.

Then we’re off to Blue Blazes as apparently, women prefer the dad bod over the chiseled dudes a recent survey finds. Who knew? A teacher in New Jersey is in hot water after he beat up a student. Why would he do such a thing? Apparently, this kid owed him money for weed! In Alabama a man allegedly fed meth to a small rodent. Neighbors have said that the animal was an “attack squirrel.” What’s that smell you ask? It could be your teenager. A recent survey has just revealed that many young people are opting out of using deorderant and antiperspirant. And a woman on her way back to her car from shopping, is followed by a man from inside the store. She records the harrowing encounter, as he first tries to present himself as a nice guy being misunderstood, then turning into a threatening agitated threat.

Then it’s Proud To Be An American time where in Tennessee Sheriff’s Detective, who’s also a pastor is seen on video calling for the execution of members of the LGBT community during a sermon. In Texas the city council of the town Waskom, which consist of all white men have just declared abortion illegal. They’re now calling their town as a “sanctuary city for the unborn.” And we’ve all known that Donald Trump is terrible with paying his bills. A lot of towns where he hold campaign rallies are finding this out too, as his campaign has stiffed towns all over the country with paying for added security when he comes to visit.

And of course, before we get out of here, we’ve got to give you our AssHat & Champ of The Week announcements. So much to get into, so little time, so let’s get to it, right here, and right now, here on The Spann Report!

(Ep. 251) #TSRP “State Of Affairs” Feat. Van Jones

On episode 251 of #TSRP Spann went to a community event at Triumph Church in Redford MI called the State Of Affairs Community Breakfast & Conversation. This event was headlined by Van Jones, who’s currently a CNN Political Commentator, and television host of the show The Messy Truth which is also broadcast on CNN. Although Van Jones was the headliner, and keynote speaker, there was also a panel discussion as well that included Dr. Michael Eric Dyson, a political commentator and author of several books. And Bankole Thompson, currently a columnist for The Detroit News, and formerly of the Michigan Chronicle newspaper. The panel discussion was moderated by Anthony Adams Esq. who’s formerly the Deputy Mayor of the city of Detroit, and Mildred Gaddis, host of The Mildred Gaddis Show on 105.9 KISS in Detroit.

This is a little bit different from your normal Spann Report episode, but we do hope that you enjoy it, and that hopefully, we can bring more events like this to you right here on The Spann Report!

(Ep. 250) #TSRP “Rodney’s First Flight””

On episode 250 of #TSRP we hop right In The News, as the publisher of Linda Fairstein, the D.A. during the Central Park 5 case has dropped her because of the negative publicity surrounding the Netflix mini-series When They See Us. This comes after she’s already been forced out as Trustee at Vassar College, her alma mater. Nevada has banned “employment discrimination” against those who consume cannabis. And YouTube has finally decided to rid it’s website of thousands of videos with “extreme views.” But do we really trust YouTube with this?

Then we move on to Blue Blazes, as a Coroner has claimed that a woman has seemingly passed away due to her use of marijuana. You can O.D. on weed??? Kwame Kilpatrick is in the news for his latest attempt to get out of prison. This time, writing a glowingly praise filled letter to Donald Trump. Do y’all think it’s going to work? Ava Duvernay, Oprah Winfrey, and Gayle King have all stated that they would like if y’all would stop calling them Auntie. So why is it so hard for people to stop? And in sad news, the rapper Bushwick Bill of the Houston Rap group, The Geto Boyz has passed away after a battle with Pancreatic Cancer. He was 52 years old. His group mate, Brad Jordan AKA Scarface in a turn of events has decided to run for the city council in the city of Houston.

And in Sexy Time, we get news that there are a lot of Senior Citizens having sex in the city. New York City that is. The only problem is, getting these seniors to practice safe sex has been a bit of a challenge, as most of them ain’t wrapping it up.

Off to Proud To Be An American we go, as Pride Month has kicked off this June. Unfortunately, and predictably, it’s being met with rampant bigotry. We start in Boston, as the city has granted a permit for a “Straight Pride Parade.” And the organizers have just named their Grand Marshal, Milo Yiannopoulos. The right-wing provocateur formerly of Breitbart “News.” Then in Detroit, Pride participants were met with armed neo-nazis marching through the downtown streets shouting anti-LGBTQIA rhetoric. And United States Embassies around the world are reporting that the Trump Administration has barred them from flying Rainbow flags along with the American flag during this month at the varying embassies. Basically, America isn’t giving anybody of sense a reason to be proud right now.

We then wrap everything up with our AssHat & Champ of The Week Announcements. So we’ve got a lot to get through. But we got this! So kick back and enjoy episode 250 of The Spann Report!

(Ep. 248) #TSRP “Ayesha Got Em Goin!”

The Spanns are back on the mic for episode 248 of #TSRP and man do we got some stuff to cover. Mr. Spann is back after having been suspended from Facebook for the 2nd time in 30 day, hence why there haven’t been any shows. Facebook seems to be trying to go into the direction of clamping down on offensive speech, but what do you do when the speech you’re clamping down on is pointing out the hatred being spewed towards someone pointing out said hatred? We then get to some Listener Feedback, as a comment was left on our website for episode 246.

We then hop In The News, as Facebook surprised many when they decided to ban Minister Louis Farrakhan along with many Right Wing Provocateurs, like Alex Jones, and Milo Yiannopoulos. Is it wrong that he’s grouped with those folks, or is he right where he belongs? Keeping up with Facebook, a City of Dearborn Michigan employee was fired from his job after a rather bigoted comment he made on an article featuring a Muslim model wearing a burkini while being featured in Sports Illustrated. Was his free speech violated, or did the city of Dearborn do the right thing in letting him go? And in Minnesota, the Governor has just signed a law that makes Marital Rape against the law. Yes, you read that right, in 2019, it is now illegal to rape your wife in Minnesota.

And off we go to Blue Blazes, as Ayesha Curry had the social media world in a tizzy after comments she made on the Facebook Watch show Red Table Talk. In the episode she spoke on how she sometimes felt insecure in the amount of male attention she gets in comparison to the attention her husband Steph Curry seems to get being an NBA Star. Many people took offense to what she said, but was it more a bit of projecting from the social media world, or is it just more the fact that folks still haven’t forgotten past statements she’s made about getting attention from the opposite sex as a married woman? In other Blue Blazes news, the hotline that was established for women who may have been sexually abused by R. Kelly, is seeing a bit of abuse of it’s own, as many women, presumably R. Kelly fans are calling the hotline to share their own sexual encounters with the R&B singer. And Underground King Bun B was in the news recently as he shot a would be home invader. Do you think Bun B should have done anything differently?

Then it’s Proud To Be An American time, where the man who threatened the lives of both President Barack Obama, and Congresswoman Maxine Waters, received a 4 year prison sentence. Prior to his sentencing, his family asked the judge for leniency, did this sentence strike the right balance? Twitter apparently has an algorithm available to them to curb the activity of White Supremacist on their platform, but there’s just one catch. Seems like if they implement the algorithm, it will disproportionately affect many members of the Republican Party, so they’ve declined to put it in place. Crazy right??? And in Georgia, Governor Brian Kemp has signed one of the most restrictive abortion bills in the nation into law. The Heartbeat Bill will restrict women from having abortions performed in the state of Georgia as early as six weeks into their pregnancy. A time where many women may not even know they’re pregnant. The biggest question regarding this is, why are these state laws going up so frequently? We’re going to break it all down.

And of course y’all know before we go, we’ve got to announce our AssHat & Champ of The Weeks! So let’s get to it. We’ve been gone when we didn’t want to be, and we got a lot to say, right here, right now here on The Spann Report!

(Ep. 247) #TSRP “Lizzie Got A Plan!”

Episode 247 of The Spann Report is here, and we start the show hopping right In The News, as Joe Biden has officially thrown his hat in the ring for the Democratic nomination for President. He’s also spoken with Anita Hill to apologize to her for his role in the Clarence Thomas Supreme Court confirmation hearings, and hired political commentator Symone Sanders as a campaign adviser. But will it be enough to shore up black support to a skeptical contingent of black women voters? Also in the news, the Florida House of Representatives led by Republicans are looking to make former felons pay fines and restitution before being able to cast a ballot. Doesn’t that sound eerily close to a poll tax? And Presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren has unveiled a plan to eliminate student loan debt for millions. But what are the details of the plan, and could there be any unintended negative consequences to implementing it?

We then move along to Blue Blazes as we’re confused as to whether or not this is the work of the Special Hotep Unit, or the religious right. Probably a bit of both as leaders in a Hebrew Isrealite church have been indicted after using the church funds as their own personal slush fund. The USDA seems to believe that there is an “acceptable amount” of fecal matter to be had in meat up for sale. Could this be the last straw and make you want to go vegan? And could Remy Ma be making a return trip to jail after allegedly bopping another Love & Hip Hop cast mate in the face and blacking her eye? Or is this just another story line for the show next year?

Then it’s off to Proud To Be An American, where in Washington DC, gentrifiers have found themselves in crosshairs of Howard University students who are taking offense to their campus being used as a dog park. A Pastor and school administrator kicked to children out of a Christian school because their mother “committed adultery.” Her children don’t have the same father. But really though, is this what Jesus would do? And a militia leader in New Mexico, who made news as his militia was illegally detaining migrants coming into the country from Mexico, was found out to be a felon, and breaking the law by even owning a firearm. Also, he’s been arrested multiple times for impersonating a police officer. So how in the hell was he still out on the streets?

Then of course you know we close the show with our AssHat & Champ of The Week. So let’s get to it, right here and right now on this week on The Spann Report Podcast!
