<p>This week, we realize we have two black klansmen on our hands — one on the big screen in the form of Spike Lee's new film "BlacKkKlansman," and one on the small screen in the form of America's most notorious reality show villain turned ex-White House employee, Omarosa Manigault Newman. Both the film and person showcase black people infiltrating hostile white institutions and coming out the other side to tell us about it. We question, however, if the message they're bringing us was worth the journey.</p><p>Discussed this week:</p><ul><li>"BlacKkKlansman" (directed by Spike Lee, 2018)</li><li>"Unhinged: An Insider's Account of the Trump White House" (Omarosa Manigault Newman, Gallery Books, 2018)</li><li>"The Apprentice" (NBC, 2004)</li><li>"Donald J.
