*On Wednesday, Sept. 30, the hosts of The Real discuss a report from the UK’s Channel 4 News, which says that in 2016, Donald Trump’s campaign targeted 3.5 million Black Americans with negative ads about Hillary Clinton to try and deter them from voting.

Co-host Adrienne Houghton points out that this is proof of how important the Black vote is, and co-host Garcelle Beauvais mentions that this is why this year it is more important than ever for the Black vote to come out to be counted.

Co-host Loni Love shares her feeling that the Clinton campaign did not do enough outreach to Black men. She feels the Biden campaign is doing a better job, but they still need to get Black men on board with voting.

Co-host Jeannie Mai reflects on her big week on Dancing With The Stars, and explains how dedicating her dance to fiancé Jeezy helped get her through her anxiety.

Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms visits and gives her opinion on the grand jury decision in the Breonna Taylor and whether the transcripts should be released. She also talks about how she doesn’t agree the that police departments should be defunded, but should be “reimagined.”

And Patricia Heaton drops in to talk about her new book, Your Second Act: Inspiring Stories of Reinvention, and reveals that her habit of organizing during the pandemic has her calling herself “Marie Kondo on steroids!”

The Ladies On How Voter Suppression Proves How Valuable The Black Vote Is

Adrienne Houghton: This is proof of how important the Black vote counts, of how important the Black vote is. If it wasn’t important and it didn’t matter and your vote didn’t count, they would not be doing this. They would not be going out of their way to make sure that you don’t vote. So let that sink in and the fact that obviously Hillary Clinton did not win, and that it may be due to the fact that those people didn’t vote – you can be a part of the change this time around.

Garcelle Beauvais: Just when you think they can’t go any lower – they do! I mean it’s unbelievable! Voter suppression! The fact that they’re so worried that our vote is so powerful, that they go out of their way, to make sure that we don’t vote, to target us, to – they’re calling it “deterrence,” that’s where they sort of single out the Hispanics, the Blacks, Asians – anybody that they can stop from voting, or not accounting your vote, right? And I feel like how does this man sleep at night? How does this administration feel ok about what they’ve done? And I feel like I’m always shocked, but then I don’t know why I am because it’s always something else, something else. So this is why this year is more important than ever for the Black vote to be counted, for us to come out in droves, to shout, to scream, and to get, you know, our vote counted.

Cardi B Claps Back at Racist Haters to Her Birkin Collection: ‘Y’all Don’t Do This to White Celebrities’

*Cardi B has clapped back at racists saying Hermés Birkin bags “lost their value” because Black female rappers wear them.

Cardi’s response is to a social media post about how rappers make the pricy handbags less “exclusive.” Hermés Birkin bags typically range anywhere from $12,000 to $200,000.

“I’ve been seeing this tweet right. It had me and it had other female rappers on it. They were talking about if we could get Birkins from the Hermés store and they [were] also saying how we depreciate the value of a Hermés Birkin bag. I find that really interesting because, first thing first, I definitely could get a bag. Actually, I got four bags today from the Hermés store,” the 28-year-old hip-hop star said in a video shared on Instagram.

Check out Cardi’s profane and is NSFW video below.

A post shared by Cardi B (@iamcardib) on

Cardi explained in her IG post on Oct. 25 that folks should stop questioning how and why Black women can “get a bag from the Hermés store” because “y’all don’t do this to these white celebrities,” she said. 

“So why is it that y’all gotta be asking us? What the f—? It just makes you want to brag like, ‘Bitch do you know who the f— you’re talking to?’ But no, I’m not even going to take it there,” Cardi B added.

“Another thing is that they’re saying we’re depreciating the value,” she contonued. “Actually, we add value because when we mention brands in hip-hop, s— go up.”

She then referenced her hit single “Bodak Yellow,” which mentions designer Christian Louboutin and the song “I Like It Like That” which mentions  Balenciaga. 

“When ‘Bodak Yellow’ came out you could actually Google that their sales went up 1000+%,” said Cardi. And when it comes to the Balenciaga sales spike, Cardi added…”That s— went up too and that’s why they worked with me this year. Like hip-hop, we start trends,” she explaiined. “When y’all say that we devalue s—, no we actually add value.”

*NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace stars in a powerful and provocative new spot from Root Insurance, in which he addresses Donald Trump’s demand that he apologize over the noose controversial. 

Back in June, NASCAR notified Wallace that a noose was found hanging in his garage stall at the Talladega Superspeedway. 

After an investigation into the incident, the FBI declined to file any hate crime federal charges.

According to a statement from U.S. Attorney Jay E. Town and FBI Special Agent in Charge Johnnie Sharp, the noose had been in the garage since last fall, per USA Today

Wallace “was not the target of a hate crime,” NASCAR said in a statement.

“There is no place in our sport for this type of racism and hatred,” said NASCAR President Steve Phelps in a press call with media at the time. “It’s not who we are as a sport.”

President Trump called the incident a “hoax” and demanded Bubba apologize for it. 

Has @BubbaWallace apologized to all of those great NASCAR drivers & officials who came to his aid, stood by his side, & were willing to sacrifice everything for him, only to find out that the whole thing was just another HOAX? That & Flag decision has caused lowest ratings EVER!,” Trump tweeted. 

In the Root commercial, Bubba walks through a crowd of reporters who ask him for the apology and he staunchly refuses.

According to a press release, Root partnered with Wallace (who recently signed with the newly formed Michael Jordan racing team) and Tool of North America with director Wesley Walker as creative lead, to tell his story and share his conviction for unapologetic societal change. 

“Root Insurance is doing what is right and making insurance more fair, and I will be proud to drive a car with their colors next season,” said Wallace. “I stand firmly with the goal of eliminating bias from insurance, and I truly believe we can work together to help make the world a better place.”

“Getting to know Bubba Wallace and what he stands for made this partnership one that we couldn’t pass up,” said Alex Timm, Root Co-Founder and CEO. “He is dedicated to standing up for what is right, even when it involves facing adversity. Root was created to make car insurance more fair, standing up against the established industry that priced more on demographics than driving behavior. We are proud to support Bubba Wallace.”

RADIOSCOPE RAW Podcast: Our Uncut 1989 Interview with Kool Moe Dee

Kool Moe Dee

*Episode 5 of the Radioscope Raw podcast features our Spring 1989 interview with rapper Kool Moe Dee.

The emcee and former member of the Treacherous Three was among hip hop’s most successful artists, with the singles “How You Like Me Now” and “Wild Wild West” having saturated urban radio two years prior.

In our interview, Kool Moe Dee (the Moe Dee short for his real name Mohandas Dewese) spoke to us about a wide range of topics, including an exchange about systemic racism and police brutality that could’ve happened yesterday, a very strong opinion on Robin Givens wanting half of ex-husband Mike Tyson’s fortune in their divorce (which inspired the album’s single “They Want Money”), and an extended dissection of his beef with LL Cool J.

“Our whole little conflict started because I felt his ego was out of hand,” he told us, adding that his frustration with LL stemmed from an opinion that the Queens rapper “never left you with any knowledge. His whole thing was like enticing the females, taking off his shirt, humping the couch and things like that, and he never went to another level. When you have that type of impact on kids, I think it’s extremely important to let them walk away with something, walk away with something inspiring.”
