Russiagate Brings Black Caucus to a New Low

I haven't been on Don Debar's CPR News program for a few months. Today I was back to talk about my latest Black Agenda Report column, Russiagate Brings Black Caucus to a New Low. While you're reading BAR also check out Glen Ford's column House (of Representatives) Negroes Rally Against Russia. The Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) deserves a double beat down this week. They are a great danger to black people.

Listen to my conversation with Don here.

Resist War and Racism Rally in New York City



Yesterday I joined this rally in New York City along with one hundred other people. It was one of many that took place across the country to protest the 16th year of the American occupation of Afghanistan. I represented both Black Agenda Report and the Black Alliance for Peace as I made my remarks. I start at about 37 minutes into the program.

You'll notice that there is footage from the Korean parade interspersed. Their event was ending as ours began. Enjoy that slice of New York City life too.

Presstv Interview



I appeared on Presstv to discuss the March for Racial Justice which was held in Washington DC. Unfortunately my remarks were edited, a lot. I only spoke for about 3 minutes and they only used a snippet. Oh well.

There was controversy about the march taking place on Yom Kippur but organizers chose the date of September 30 for a very good reason. On September 30, 1919 a massacre of black farmers took place in Elaine, Arkansas. An estimated 100 to 200 people were killed after they attempted to protest against the sharecropper system by forming a union.
