    I enjoyed the show. Keep doing what y’all are doing. I appreciate your comments at the end of the show on what’s going on in Ferguson. I thought they were timely, brave, and well thought out. I believe we can all be more empathetic for one another and examine ourselves so stereotypes or bias don’t impact how we treat each other. It’s also important that we strive for equal justice for all by speaking up and demanding it from our local leaders and politicians. Thanks for keeping it real Bobby and starting the convo. Even if some disagree I think it’s important to be heard
