THE REAL: Behind The #EndSARS Movement + Sterling K. Brown On Tonight’s ‘This Is Us’ Premiere

Chuey Chu (the real)

*On Tuesday, Oct. 27, the hosts of The Real speak to Nigerian Media Personality/TV Host Chuey Chu, who breaks down the #EndSARS movement, explains what the protests are all about and how people can help.

Then the ladies discuss whether being gifted with an expensive Birkin Bag is a true sign of love, or just a great photo for the ‘gram.

DC Young Fly stops by to talk about hosting the BET Hip Hop Awards tonight, and also lets co-host Jeannie Mai know he’d put the “fire” in Dancing With The Stars, if given the opportunity!

And later Sterling K. Brown visits to chat about tonight’s season premiere of This Is Us and how “overjoyed” he is to be back with his co-workers again. He also fondly remembers the late Chadwick Boseman and shares about the Survivorship Today series, created to help advance our collective understanding of what it’s like to live with cancer.

Nigerian Media Personality/TV Host Chuey Chu Breaks Down The #EndSars Movement

Chuey Chu: SARS stands for The Special Anti-Robbery Squad. These guys were set up in 1992 to deal with increased cases of kidnapping, armed robbery, cattle rustling, vehicle theft – but think of them as Bad Boys – you know, Will Smith, Martin Lawrence – that kind of department. But over the years, these guys have become the monsters they were created to destroy. So, they’re out there kidnapping, blackmailing people – especially the young people. So they do a lot of profiling. Typically between the ages of 18-35, if you have an iPhone, if you drive a nice car, if you have dreadlocks, if you have tattoos, if you have piercings, if you got hair like Odell Beckham… you’re their target. If you… if they see you on the road, they try to extort you. If you do not have money on you, they will arrest you. If you have money on you, they will arrest you; they will ask for more. It’s just crazy – we just need it all to stop.

[EDIT]

Chuey: We are asking for what we call the Five for Five – we have five demands I’m gonna read out to you guys, ok. The first thing we want is the immediate release of all arrested protesters. The second thing – we want justice for all deceased victims of police brutality and appropriate compensation for their families. Thirdly, we want to set up an independent body to oversee the investigation and prosecution of all reports of police misconduct. Fourthly, in line with the new police act, we want psychological reevaluation and retraining of all SARS officers before they are accepted back into the police force. And finally, we want the government to increase the police salary so that they are adequately protect – um, compensated for the work they do.

About THE REAL

THE REAL is a live daily, one-hour, two-time NAACP Image Award-winning and Emmy®-nominated talk show now in its seventh season on Fox Television Stations and in national syndication (check local listings), with a rebroadcast on cable network Bounce. The bold, diverse and outspoken hosts, Garcelle Beauvais and Emmy® Award-winners Adrienne Houghton, Loni Love and Jeannie Mai, all frankly say what women are actually thinking. Their unique perspectives are brought to life through candid conversations about their personal lives, current events, beauty, fashion and relationships (nothing is off limits).

Fresh points of view, youthful energy and passion have made THE REAL a platform for multicultural women. Produced by Telepictures Productions and distributed by Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution, THE REAL is led by Executive Producer, Rachel Miskowiec (Good Morning America, Katie, The Tyra Banks Show, Judge Hatchett, The Ricki Lake Show) and Co-Executive Producer Tenia Watson (Judge Mathis, Lauren Lake’s Paternity Court, WGN-TV Morning News, Just Keke, The Test) and shot in Los Angeles, California.
