CPR News Interview: Why We Need Black Anger

In today's CPR News interview with Don DeBar I discussed my latest Black Agenda Report column. I wrote Why We Need Black Anger because of the inevitable demand that black people stop showing anger about police killings or any other aspect of their oppression. The candle light vigils and kumbaya began in earnest after five Dallas, Texas police officers were killed last Friday.

Suddenly black people were told to be calm and peaceful and loving. Black anger makes others nervous but that is an indication of why it is so vital. Barack Obama says there is no division among the races. That means that there is and that the reasons for it must be called out.

Enough already. Stay angry my friends.
