Hi Thom, I wanted to watch and hear you speak about police brutality but Mr. Cooper I'd so loud and rambunctious I had to stop. What do you say we tone it all down, Thom?

Considering the fact that there is a small percentage of black Republicans, it is noteworthy that you have so many on your program. All of these people are well educated and take views against liberal views about why black people are poor and whether they are discriminated against, etc, I don't know if it is possible, but it would be interesting to know the early background of these regular guests that you include in your show. Did they pull themselves up by their bootstraps and get out of the ghetto or as I am thinking, have most of them been raised in a mostly white middle class neighborhood? Perhaps it is not something that you can actually talk about, but maybe it would be possible to find out the percentage of black Republican Americans who grew up in a poor neighborhood. I know that there are exceptions, but I just find that it is a problem with many people of any race to have empathy for those who struggle when they have never seen poverty up close and personal.
