Welcome back to another episode of Decoding40. On this week’s check-in, Alari has installed a front door camera to solve the mystery of the dog shit in front of his house. L has an uneventful week but was forced to block the first person on Clubhouse. Mack has started house hunting with the wife and the experience is leaving him underwhelmed. Vin is winding up his vacation and is in the process of looking for someone to install a fence in his backyard. Next, we discuss the latest story in the Black Live matter movement. Recently, Tamir Rice's mother, Samaria Rice, is taking aim at certain civil rights leaders that she claimed were clout chasing. She feels that some of these leaders (or celebrity activists) and some organizations are profiting from her pain and the pain of many families that have had loved ones murdered by the State. Is she right? You’ll hear all of this and more on this episode of Decoding 40.
