Black Agenda Report and CPR News: Black Fear in the Age of Trump

Don Debar and I resumed our conversations which are a great opportunity to discuss my Black Agenda Report columns in depth. This week Black Fear in the Age of Trump was the topic. Yes Trump is the latest representative of the white people's party and no that isn't good for black people. But it is also not good for us to give up our power and to think that we cannot decide upon or press ahead with our agenda.

In the 1950s and 1960s discrimination was legal. We had no allies in the media or corporate America. We had no money and half of all black Americans lived in the south and had no voting rights. We had nothing we now think we must have and yet we changed the nation.

We can do so again. No need to live in a state of dread or to cling to the discredited democratic party. Listen to Don and I talk here.
