Today's episode discusses the Oregon School District that banned BLM and LGBTQ clothing and signage a few months ago. They are now making headlines because their students were involved in a Snapchat-based mock slave auction where students discussed prices they would pay for their Black classmates. We also discuss whether or not the NFL should continue to play the Black National Anthem (Lift Every Voice and Sing) in addition to playing the National Anthem. For our Way Black History Fact, we discuss the well-documented racist history of the National Anthem, and our Ebony Excellence shout out goes to Lil Nas X! Check it out!
