At the Center of Controversy, Dr. Ricky Jones Minces No Words in Interview with Hey Kentucky!

Screen Shot 2017-04-25 at 7.31.16 PM

Normally sitting at the desk next to Matt Jones as a Hey Kentucky! co-host, Dr. Ricky Jones joined the program as a guest stuck in the middle of a Louisville controversy.

Dr. Jones was recently nominated by Mayor Greg Fischer to join a Louisville Police Oversight Committee.  His nomination was met with objection by the President of the River City Fraternal Order of Police and a city councilwoman.  His response is filled with powerful language, most notably his description of the President of Louisville’s Fraternal Order of Police as a “Modern day Bull Conner.”

Watch today’s episode with Drew Franklin after the jump.

      Easy answer. Matt’s a lefty, carry’s white guilt, and is probably agonizing over ‘white privilege as well. Dr. Jones is the perfect example of a black racist playing uofsmell and the city like a fiddle. If you speak out or have I’ll will toward him and his ilk, you’re no doubt a raving racist. Welcome to loser loserville.

      “Damn, ‘ill’ will!” – Don’t feel bad. Your grammar was the least embarrassing thing about that post.

    When 5-6% of the country make up 50% of the incarcerated, it’s not a police problem. Dr. Jones needs to examine culture issues.

      Exactly, the disparity in incarceration stats matches perfectly with the disparity in crime stats. This entry level, cursory glance at statistics by Jones is commonly mistaken as an actual consideration of the facts. Anyone can throw out a statistic and twist it as he does.

      A lot of those “crimes” are just drug possession if ya wanna talk statistics. Is that against the law? Yes. Should it be? No. And I’ve never done a drug in my life.

    Dr. Jones is great. Outspoken white authoritarians need a counter-balance of outspoken activist POC

    Dr. Jones is being a little disingenuous when he uses hyperbole like a ‘Modern day Bull Conner” When Dr. Jones was chosen by Mayor Fisher, a white man, to be a black leader it is no issue but when someone raises an objection they are what is wrong and racist? Just as Dr. Jones wants free speech, it should be afforded to others. Then lets examine what they have said and go from there.

    All one has to do is read the police reports from the United Airlines event to see how easy it is for police to falsify reality. Of course, all we’ll see is the ignorance of people trying to make this political (see above) instead of viewing the actual facts of the situation.

SO FUNNY hearing things like how the ppl of lessington are paying for the Yum center… Or when their coach blast UofL for having grad transfers, then signs one after they lose 95% of their scoring, then these morons defend it LMAO!! Honestly not a more ignorant and classless fanbase on this planet

      If one is going to talk down other people’s intelligence it’s best to do so articulately so that one doesn’t look like a hypocrite.
