It was time to discuss one of the most divisive words in the world.

But before Andy and James begin to discuss that, they spend sometime trying to find a common ground on gun control. Why does it happen? How it isn't a constitutional to take away assault rifles as that wasn't exactly what our forefathers had in mind when coming up with 2nd Amendment.

Andy and James transition to discussing the "N-word" and whether it is ever appropriate to use it based on your skin color or race. James also provides a story regarding a bus passenger and her inability to not use the word. Andy brings up the fact that growing up he was called a racial slur for being Mexican. James and Andy then discuss whether Redneck should be outlawed as well because technically its viewed by some as a racial slur.

They finish off with some news that was reported about Somerville High School, Martin County School and Jefferson County School district.
