I love my Black Friday series, it’s my chance to have some fun, talk some real talk and get certain things off my chest. There’s so many injustices that we face in the black community but to me, it seems that no one is willing to state the obvious!

With Pt 3 I wanted to ask the question – if Jeremy Clarkson was to say what he said against the LGBTQ Community, would he be on TV today? My hunch is… he wouldn’t.

If this is the temperament for Black people in the United Kingdom, then, it isn’t any different from America. Edgy in his approach, British rapper Marci Phonix says some things about the Royal Family in his ‘Black Friday 3’ verses that are bound to make some people upset. Known for blasting Tory MP [Member of Parliament] Kwasi Kwarteng on live TV, he has become a spokesman for the people. Whatever you do, make sure you watch the video above until the bitter end.
