This special installment of The Chauncey DeVega Show features four different guests in three acts.
In the first part of this week's episode Rufus Farmer and Erica Mines, the two African-American activists who Bill Clinton lectured and finger pointed out during a recent rally in Philadelphia, share their on the ground experience(s). Rufus Farmer's and Erica Mines's account of the Philadelphia rally is quite different from how the mainstream corporate news media framed "Black Lives Matter" "protesting" against Bill Clinton and his role in the 1994 Crime Bill.
Bill the Lizard, friend of the podcast and Chauncey DeVega's heterosexual life partner, stops by to discuss the horrible Batman vs. Superman movie, the new Star Wars: Rogue One trailer, and the amazing second season of the animated series Star Wars: Rebels.
Adding to an already overflowing with goodness episode of The Chauncey DeVega Show, Chauncey's mom (aka "Momma DeVega") makes her second appearance on the podcast. Momma DeVega and Chauncey talk about the naming practices of the ghetto underclass, self-destructive behavior, Al Sharpton's severe weight loss, and why she does not watch TV shows like Maury Povich, Hoarders, or My 600lb Life. Chauncey's mother is in a grumpy mood and proceeds to make fun of how a Catholic priest wanted to seduce a young Chauncey DeVega. She also finds it especially entertaining when Chauncey reminds her of how, when he was a child, a perverted man in a public bathroom tried to pee on him.
During this episode of The Chauncey DeVega Show, Chauncey offers up some extended and heartfelt comments about colorism and self-hatred in the black community. And because he was feeling especially creative and inspired, at the end of this week's fun and special podcast, Chauncey also offers a poem about Bill O'Reilly's obsession with black people who have tattoos on their faces.
