In a clip encompassing potential castings and societal attitudes, there was a debate on whether Robert Downey Jr., who controversially portrayed a black character in the 2008 comedy "Tropic Thunder," could repeat the performance in the present day. Vlad and Michael Jai White argued that community overreaction and outrage define today's society. The term 'woke' was discussed, pointing out that it has been turned into an insult by groups opposing its initial intentions, where it represented a positive social awakening. They also argued that there is a human nature to discredit movements and personalities by highlighting their flaws, using Martin Luther King and the Black Lives Matter movement as an example. The conversation concluded with remarks on how anyone striving for the rights of the underprivileged is often met with resistance and even hostility.
