A lawyer, a filmmaker, a host and a comedian serve a veracious cocktail when they truthfully talk about Racism, Sex and Terrorism. This episode they dissect why so many are shocked by the President's deliberate use of the N-Word; the long overdue movement to remove the Confederate Flag; color coded condoms that detect STDs; and whether Diddy's new alias should be Sean 'Terrorist' Combs. If you consider yourself a conversational mixologist, then hit play, until the bartender cuts you off.
