Negroes in Naples
They should’ve never gave these negroes money!!! This week the Best Friend Weekend crew welcomes the homie, RG, from the Tha Tipping Point Podcast to run through some highlights from Aldo and RG’s trip to Italy. Per usual, Rumble Williams kicked off the episode with his recent jury duty experience which got us talking about black folks and this process (01:00). Next, Aldo let us know What Burned His Boudin this week including not knowing about airport protocols (09:00) and new school bathrooms (12:00).

You Don't Have to Be Racist to Do Racist Things
It was one of those weeks… Race and Culture intersected in a way that made for some great podcasting topics. Per usual, Rumble Williams led off this #LastFridays episode with his excitement for the start of fantasy football (01:00) which led to us giving our thoughts on team-building.

To end the pod, we discussed Idris Elba not subscribing to black nepotism (1:01:00) and gave our Big Three beneficiaries of this concept (1:11:00).
