Marcus Orelias, the new generation speaks & Armed Black self defense
Black Talk Radio News welcomes Marcus Orelias to the program. Marcus is an 18 year old who contacted me because he wanted to share with our listeners his thoughts and opinions on injustices he sees in our society.
“I wanted to contact Black Talk Radio for many reasons, my main reason is all the media and news coverage around the Trayvon Martin case. I myself being a young person, young activist and a artist would like to give insight on my opinion and how I feel about the injustices that I've seen and heard about in my life time, from Rodney King (which was on tape) to Troy Davis, Oscar Grant, who was a local friend and now Trayvon Martin who was senselessly murdered, the list continues.”
Marcus says he is also working on an album that will deal with societal political issues.
The Black Panthers say they will start conducting firearm training in the Black community so that it can protect itself from people like George Zimmerman.
“Malik Zulu Shabazz, the national chairman of the New Black Panther Party, told a radio program over the weekend that he wants African-Americans in the US to be prepared for further victimization and, in hopes of preventing further attacks, wants blacks to be briefed in self defense.”
What do you think? Is their focus to narrow? Is it a good ideal? What are some of the other things they should focus on? In addition, are the mainstream media and members of the Black community smearing the group? Are they being misunderstood or purposely lied on? What other propaganda should the Black community be aware of?
