The Breakfast Club attempted to have a conversation with conservative talk jock Rush Limbaugh about the death of George Floyd, the protests that have erupted around the globe as a result, and white supremacy.
The chat between the Breakfast Club hosts DJ Envy, Charlamagne Tha God, and Angela Yee, and Limbaugh was intended to help bridge the gap between the vastly different audiences that both reach.
DJ Envy opened the conversation, explaining the reasoning behind having the discussion with Limbaugh, saying that “the dialogue has to be open beyond who we know or who we talk to every morning.”
The conversation touched on various points, starting with the death of Floyd, which Limbaugh said “sickens him” and also said he hopes to see the additional officers involved charged.
Charlamagne pointed out that it’s easy for Limbaugh to take the stance that he does because he’s a white male, which comes with “a different level of privilege.”
