  1. Greetings to you son and daughter of Negus. I believe that greeting is appropriate considering the subject matter of this episode.

    The strange thing about the hotep bullshit is that they take a kernel of truth, start to expand it, then distort the living fuck out of it. Take the fact that Europeans are 96% Homo Sapiens and 4% Neanderthal. This is actually true, but that 4% Neanderthal isn’t a genetic defect since Neanderthals were the last human species on the evolutionary chain before Homo Sapiens, and at one time in history, they shared the planet with us. There was interbreeding, hence the passing down of DNA throughout the ages. How do you take that nugget then expand it to be that niggas will cancerize the sons of shaytan?

    The sad part of this is we know its an almost logical reaction to being stripped of your history. In Jamaica we have Rastafari which is a religion that believes that the Ethiopian emperor Haile Selassie is the second coming of Christ and Marcus Garvey was a prophet. The whole notion revolves around leaving Babylon (the west) and returning to Zion (Africa). The basis is different but the end result is the same, small kernel of truth then expanding to the same fuckery stew of misogyny and homophobia in an attempt at black empowerment.

    Also, I loved that break-down of FEAR off Damn. Funny enough, the first time I actually heard the lyrics I thought of this show because a frequent topic of discussion on the show is how we raise our children through fear, as a survival mechanism over the generations. Instill the appropriate fear early so they know how to navigate the world. Whup them at home so they don’t fuck up and get the actual whip from massa. The effects of slavery are a motherfucker.

    This was a near perfect episode.

  2. Oh man, I didn’t know Black people emitted radiation like that. My fiance’s been giving me cancer this whole time?!

  3. I spent equal amounts of time rolling my eyes and cackling laughing during the What’s a Hotep segment. I think I may have sprained my eyes and my side.

    In listening to this episode, all I could think was the Jailhouse Professor from In Living Color. The funny thing is that so many women actually believe that shit. You hear women agreeing in the background during the clips. And it takes some twisted logic to say that Black Queens shouldn’t be with the White Devil, but it’s ok for them to get with all the White wimmins they can get their hands on.

    And you know these same Negros are saying, “Watch out sistas, these White girls are evolving.”

  5. I’ve been waiting for this show since the 1st time i heard you guys use the word hotep to describe some one. I guess I’m a hotep in recovery. For i while i was kinda deep into the umar johnson and tariq trap. Never agreed much with their views on women though. I grew up in a house full of women. I always seen how hard women epically black women had it in the world. But anyway great show and can we get some “you might be a hotep ” jokes jeff foxworthy style

  6. I’m one of the people who answered I already knew what a hotep was in the poll. But I had to add that you niggas need to be awarded a daytime emmy for the What’s A Hotep segment because that shit was so mother fucking funny. The video was tragic but your commentary had me laughing til I was crying literally. When Rod asked how white folks would make black folks gay to keep black men effeminate and Karen said, “they using they ice powers”, nigga…. I almost wrecked on the eye 5. I had to pull to the shoulder until I could stop laughing. Thanks Karen!!!!

  7. The bonus round of Guess the Race had me crying!
    ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ #Fishsandwich

  8. I know hoteps were crazy but sheesh I did not know the history. Nigga Ice and Sun people?! My only issue is brother could’ve gave me a shoutout for Ankh Right or something damn. I gotta start a gofund me to get my copyright.

    And LaVar Ball is dusty Rod! Meet me on the court! One ball. One goal. 21. All day. By ourselves. Wake up. Go back to sleep. Ever see a post move nigga?

    All that HOTEP info really reminded me of my college days. I think there really is something attractive about that rhetoric when you’re 6% of a majority white university and lots of white students are telling you that you don’t deserve to be there because of affirmative action. (I was in college from 90-94). It’s also especially if you come from a bad environment–poor school system, a Good Times type home, rough neighborhood. You want to believe that black people come from something better than what we see. Luckily, my life experience and desire to learn helped me see through the misogyny and homophobia of Hotepism.
