Special guest ELI MARKUS, author of Secure The Throne, returns to discuss the idea of the value of being right in our society. For example, we are witnessing the unfortunate black-and-forth between former NFL player ED REED and HBCU Bethune-Cookman's decision to withdraw his coaching position at the university. Regardless of which side is correct, are there any lessons that can be evaluated in how "WHO IS RIGHT?" is being leveraged or misused under the circumstances? In other situations, how often does our community overleverage being right, whether with an employer, a POLICE OFFICER or even in business?  How can holding on to being right or our perceptions of what is right stunt our growth individually or as a community? MENTAL DIALOGUE asking the questions America's afraid to ask. ALL I ASK IS THAT YOU THINK
