They observe it in 43 states Texas. Is the big state for that that's where the last they were the last to know about their freedom previously granted slaves. Now to me.

June 18 is Independence Day for Black America July 4 is Independence Day for white America. Noted opposes picture on our FaceBook page at liked to take you calls in the me. That's that's as offensive as a confederate flag if not more so because the confederate flag is something and it happened a long time ago. Ushers statement scratching out July and and granted it's not as prevalent but I don't know if he's gonna start. Is selling these T shirts or what have you really have become more prevalent but scratching out July 4. Independence Day for everybody in this country and putting in June 18. Are having that created underneath I find that extremely offensive I find that extremely divisive.

Before nine open lines when we come back right now I'm Fredette at W offers news. Go to Dave hardly well just when he thought it was safe to go back into the theaters comes along and of the rocky movie. Really yeah it's called creed but apparently. It's Apollo creed Sion yeah. And all men how many this without and it freezes delicately it looks like like tailored just like rocky. Except it's a black rocky that the people are following him when he's run and a black guys on motorcycles. The gym is all black guys I'm like rocky which you know I don't on care that is and I items tenuous off from now. From the trailer now rocky. Sylvester Stallone is apparently playing the Burgess Meredith role of the trainer. I hop I knew we'd be in there and a surname of they have of the movie is creed just when you thought you'd seen the end of the rocky films but again you probably got a new generation of people. That Tony remember that don't look at it as your movie got so. Like to note T 601878. Turn out over again you know they just keep going back in the same Ole same I mean I'm gonna have a new twist NeuStar elegant Jurassic Park now adult films franchises yeah. Jurassic was number one I'm Jan yet. Some of the attacks I'm getting about usher and his shirt words and a teacher it is races with the confederate flag is not. Another when he is right us indication on Knoll will perform Saturday night he added T shirt that says July 4 it was scratched out it's at June. Nineteen. In June 18 if you well. He's right July 4 doesn't represented Black America and yes I would buy this year. He sure does not represent the oppression and murder of white people led DM flag sure does. I don't know what place how is still America's two races to dip to different realities whatever black person displays empowerment white America labels them. As a radical would troublemaker. Every time you being offended by his seizure proves that. It offended by his teacher because July 4 traditionally. The the day we celebrate the independence of America which is you know the day it was. The declaration of independence is and stand it was signed but here's the thing. Com. I don't thinking he'd gone back and forth with one America award to America's inward the same or way different I think you get a pick a side. So if you're saying in July 4 does not. You're Independence Day that it's June 18 what you're saying then is you want to be different. You want there to be a divide that's on empowerment that's as divisive as divisive can be. So I think you're saying you know one. I don't wanna assimilate I don't want anything to do with you we are gonna have to independence days one white one black well that's the case. I would say don't look for special treatment if you blacker don't look for. Any kind of color blindness. And I'm just time out I shear because just is he doesn't speak for all black people. They confederate flag doesn't speak for all white people by denying keep bouncing back to where the same we're different we're the same we're different. It's clear that there are two Americas the taxes one white one black because of the don't get in sympathize with browser she's seizure. Then you suffer from institutional. Racism. And America's biggest problem that blight folk just don't get it I'm really starting to believe they'd yell suffer from mental illness. Another one. Blacks will always wanna be black or act cater to lights whenever it means more money in their pockets plain and simple. Usher knows how to play whose audience of 260187. If you wanna weigh in on that. And the other question we haven't this South Carolina legislatures in a vote on the confederate flag today out you think they should vote on it. And when it comes a decisiveness. Do we really wanna get along as a country. Or did ushers say though this featured where now they should be a Black America there should be a white America. Anyway how do you think the South Carolina legislature should vote on it will be back to six or one point seven if you want to get involved. Tommy Tucker Devin WL. We'll bloody and now it's on Brothers singing I'm no Angel heal him two chances to win. For tickets night and 120 dollars and statement as not all one lucky winner is gonna receive a grand prize of two VIP tickets. Dubbed they harbor best they Saint Louis and one night stay at the news silver slipper hotels if you wanna win. For tickets and they harbor fest featuring Greg omen on July 18 cult T six OW lion answer to that soon and was 67 right now. Caller eight is gonna win with a WW out. Ready Jack in my opinion poll after the up for the July I think a lot of. People's thoughts turned to going on vacation. And are pretty jet were opinion poll are you going out of town on vacation this summer. Ford now 34% are saying yes but 66%. Are saying no. And I will not be going out of town on vacation each year I'm gonna. Probably moved to get up to college and has to be as far as I'm going one. But let me know 260187. He would love to hear from you worry get ready. To go to bomb to go out in town and if so where you go on and what is the ideal amount it time for a vacation. When we went to Ireland last year has like ten days a little bit too long for me I think five days. Is the ideal amount of time for a vacation now next hour to talk about this proposal. I don't know if you call little low threshold. Shelter but. It's designed to get the people off the streets. And from under the the overpass which is what quite honestly Droid Troy do wonders is best to do and there are building a facility out on the North Shore of its gonna. Take some people there there will be some pretty tight restrictions that'll teach from cramps. So that they'll be able to god make a living. But anyway just downtown new wall ones need a low barrier homeless shelter. And some officials they wanted to build a new warning half million dollar shelter. That has fewer rules for the homeless stay there and I don't know that it's. See you have to necessarily be sober when you go worry if you can drink when years the area would seem. In direct contradiction to the new loans mission because we're gonna talk. To them at some point or at least somebody with the new loans mission. Nom about their program and about how it's designed to get people on their rights to a track in a strict rules. And that some people rather than followed the rules would rather go out in live on the street. So I don't know if there's four and a half million dollars shelter the low barrier homeless shelter. If it's a vital tool would come back to combat homelessness. And I don't mean this is now home. Terrible because we're talking about human beings. Or is it just holding penny if you will. To get the homeless people out from under. The the overpasses were against him anymore. Sign on and a other question is if you build a facility like this which could be viewed I guess as a homeless hotel. Is again encourage more homeless people. To come down. Nazis X a one point seven if you wanna weigh in what has been no next hour talking about that let's congratulate Katie glued goto. She's going to be here aghast at the bay harbor fess featuring Greg Allman on July 18 I get news listen to me.

Now that text comes in as far as vacation going to West Virginia to watch the saints and relax a little five days loved it last year. Also a couple overnight. Beach trips the golf tournament this weekend I believe was that the green briar. And it looked pretty lush data to idea wouldn't be bad spent an a couple of days there and that's in response to a pretty jaguar opinion bowl. Which is asking you are you've gone out of town on vacation this summer. 65%. Are saying you know 35 prisoners saying yes on a lighter note it is always nationals something days isn't it. 10 or a couple of nationals something days. From today is national fried chicken day.
