JSC Radio – Episode 2: Social Outcasts


PHILADELPHIA (JSC) —  Fresh off of a week where we damn near had a riot in Chicago during an alleged Presidential rally, it’s time for Episode 2 for JSC Radio. This week’s subject: Is it possible for us as a society to start to treat each other better? Judging from some of the crap I see on such wonderful places such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and others, probably not. I’m an 80s baby. I’m not so old that I don’t get that times change (and please don’t think I’m gonna sit here and say that “My day was better than…” or any of that garbage. But what I will say is that we seem to be in a battle to take things back to a time when people were pretty trash to others and it was readily accepted. If I had the patience and the time, I’d scour Twitter to find some really reprehensible things that people say to each other — trust me, it wouldn’t take me very long — as an example of how sh*tty we are to people these days. This week’s show is my take on how social media, and social dialogue in general, has headed down the toilet and how we need to think about being better people. Let’s Go.

Charles In Charge: The Birth of the New People’s Champ


And then a Hero Comes Along…♠

“I knew something was wrong when a little, pretty white girl ran into a black man’s arms. Something is wrong here. Dead giveaway. DEEEEAD GIVEAWAY!” — Charles Ramsey.

DETROIT (JSC) — In this internet crazy age, things go viral faster than Chicken Pox in a pre-school. It is virtually impossible during a given day to avoid the latest internet pablum that spreads like wildfire. Whether it’s a stray #hashtag on Twitter, to an innocuous trending topic, to one of a multitude of ridiculously hilarious memes on Facebook & Instagram, to some ridiculous YouTube video trend that gets way out of control (see: Shake, Harlem), you couldn’t avoid this crap if you tried. Some of the most notorious are the man-on-the-street TV interviews that eventually find their way onto YouTube. I think we all know someone who uncorks the obnoxiously overplayed “Ain’t nobody got time fo’ dat!” from last year’s Tennessee internet “superstar” Sweet Brown. Others remember Antoine Dodson, 2011’s internet champ, getting everywhere with the “Hide Yo’ Kids. Hide Yo’ Wife” and managing to parlay it into such things as free tickets to a UFC Event at the Palace of Auburn Hills. Every so often, however, some absolute Gold falls from the heavens. Something that is the perfect combination of topical, unbelievable, and brimming with soundbytes. That’s where Charles Ramsey comes in. This dude’s startling act of heroism yesterday in Cleveland — and the subsequent interview for the ages — has made him an unexpected superstar and proved that regardless of who you are or how you look, you can still be a true champion. Let’s Go.

#JSC Quickie: So You Had a Bad Day…


UPDATE (7:15 p EDT): A.J. Clemente was fired by KFYR shortly after the original Blog went up. Damn, Homie.

Apparently, dropping a double-barrell profanity bomb as two of the first three words you ever utter in the business is an easy way to end up out of it. He has already had Opie & Anthony reach out to have him on their show and he’s seemingly garnered the support of Twitter with the hashtag #HireAJ being passed around. He also took time to elaborate on the “gay” that was heard before his famous two words:

Either way, best of luck to this cat. If anything, it can only get better from here…right?
