#ToBeHonest is a new YouTube talk show series centered around real people, real issues and real conversation.
We’ll be tackling a wide range of topics throughout the course of the show ranging from sex and relationships to politics and social justice movements. Because the show is produced in Mississippi by young, Black Mississippians, we’ll also be sharing our experiences and perspectives about life as we know it.

What do you think is the biggest mistake men and/or women make in relationships?: People in general ruin relationship by assuming their ways as an individual are easily accepted and are tolerable. The biggest mistakes most relationships run into is the process of finding the common ground between one another in several areas of the relationship. Only time reveals the complexities and time is not usually taken yet relationships and the steps in relationships are more than likely rushed before the two fully know each other on both ends of the spectrum.
What do you think are the biggest issues that your generation is facing today? What about the world?: Lack of knowledge, lack of knowledge of self, lack of knowledge of the world and its entirety, and self-centeredness are the biggest issues our generation is facing by fault of their own. The killings of our races men and women (as well as the state of incarnation and so much more) is the biggest overall issue our generation has to battle with daily. The world suffers from eating off a plate full of lies fed from the hands on the ones in control. Overall, this world suffers from independence and needs a revolution.
