Television Tuesday: You Really Ought to Watch, "Tha God's Honest Truth," on Comedy Central

I greatly enjoy the morning radio show known as The Breakfast Club. One of the reasons I enjoy it so much is it features Lenard McKelvey AKA Charlamagne the God. Every day he offers fascinating insights on topics ranging from race to religion, politics, sex, gender, popular culture, sports, and the intersection of all of these subjects. Recently Charlamagne got a show on Comedy Central; it airs Friday nights at 10PM Eastern and 9PM Central. Over the span of a half-hour, Charlamagne does a deep dive into a variety of subjects from how some Americans are obsessed with the losing Confederacy, to the FBI's racist history, to the most recent episode with Critical Race Theory.

Charlamagne holds many opinions on a lot of subjects, and I don't always agree with him, but I often do. He has this masterful way of taking a heavy topic, breaking it into easy-to-understand pieces, and then he excels at pointing out the hypocrisy and ignorance of others in regards to whatever he's talking about (just look at the boogeyman Critical Race Theory/telling the truth in history classes has become). Every episode of, "Tha God's Honest Truth," offers entertainment, education, and is sure to spark a lot of discussion amongst those watching. You can catch past episodes on Comedy Central's website or if you have Paramount+.
