Adam is immediately trying to recall who sings that song, Dawson and Lynch both get on mic and explain that it’s older Fleetwood Mac, a song titled ‘Oh Well’ and Adam finishes the intro and welcomes Gina and BB to the show, BB has Adam’s “I’d be a horrible Wayans Brother” quote as today’s #TopDrop.
Gina brings up Marlon Wayans appearance on the morning show and David brings up his own recent appearance on Mark in The Morning along with Rick Springfield who David jokingly calls his doppelganger and BB mocks openly for the lame joke attempt.

Adam is talking about Sonny and his love for BattleBots and how great their designs are, David says next week the show will be back and Adam tells the gang about his conversation with his son about the good news and bad news of ‘BattleBots’ being preempted by said conversation about race.
Adam is now off on a rant about the actual statistics at play and the real issues underpinning most of these endless conversations and navel gazing that never helps anyone nor fixes anything, Adam brings up the real world crime stats of black males and the built in prejudice of cops based on said stats.
Adam is very practical about changing the numbers and how this stuff works, BB chimes in and Adam says there is no such thing of talking a cop out of being freaked out by the stats.
David has a Dinesh D’Souza dig and says he reject s Adam’s stats, Adam talks about the political left and their obsession with numbers and stats when it comes to climate change and how they reject numbers and stats when it doesn’t fall in line with some dogmatic ideology regardless of it being based in reality or not.
Adam is trying to get David to acknowledge that the left does like numbers and stats and all things science when it comes to global warming, David is pretending to not understand the question and has a loose tone to his voice like he’s trying to agitate or resist Adam, he did crap on Dinesh D’Souza the last time he was on the show.
Does David not know that Adam doesn’t book these guys, it’s a certain man who shouted ‘Back to Back world war champs” at a nice concerned woman in Amsterdam trying to save their lives and prevent them from killing anyone else as he was driving on the wrong side of the road.
Adam doesn’t hang out with Dinesh and gives him the same rope he gives any guest, what they do with it is their choice, people in the audience either agree with Dinesh or they don’t, either way his booking doesn’t change anything.

David says he believes he was not in a public location or had black skin the cop would have just killed him instead of making up a story with his fellow officers, why is that?
Adam brings up Mark Geragos recent case with the white victim of a police shooting, executed while lying flat and not moving, he is trying to make a point about the lack of coverage of that case and everyone just moves on again like they always do, nobody cares, not even in that room.
Adam is adamant about this part of coppery that he doesn’t like and he says it’s poor people who get screwed by cops, and the people who commit the most amount of crime, they will suffer the most and be singled out by the cops because of the statistics.
Adam is now talking about the real world stats at play and the fear and edge a cop must be experiencing when approaching a car at night, Adam says poor people get the shit kicked out of them by cops.
Adam has a great point about neighborhoods filled with criminals and those without criminals who get criminal cameos from time to time.
Adam is talking about the Rodney King beating and the open discussion that never gets to the real truth, David cites a republican congressman who has been stopped 9 times with suspicion he was driving a stolen car.
Adam says that happens to everyone, he lists some of is most egregious experiences with cops while poor, he cites the time he was pulled over on a motorcycle and his bike was towed and the cop offered him a ride home which led to Adam hitchhiking and meeting the guy from ‘Strand and Deliver’ before the movie was released.
Adam shares his frustration with the cop and his multiple rounds of begging for him to show some sympathy.
Adam says Daniel Villarreal(?) came and picked him up and told him all about the movie, so this must have been 1987, he says they smoked pot and BB continues to not remember any of these details despite having this story told to him about 3-4 times on air.
Adam says he was an interesting looking dude and they talked about acting and comedy, Adam hits home that being poor is the biggest factor when dealing with cops.

David says the security was lax when he was at an early fundraising event, Adam says it was a joke and pundits made real talk out of the possibility.
Adam says that it’s proof that there is less racism out there that nobody has attempted to assassinate him, it doesn’t mean there is 0 racism.
