Political Prisoner Radio - Free Chip Fitzgerald w/ Jenn Laskin & Matt Hart

Guest Speakers
Jenn Laskin & Matt Hart
Romaine Chip Fitzgerald is described as the longest held political prisoner who belonged to the Black Panther Party for Self Defense. Chip as he is known, experienced trouble as a teenager but upon his release from the Youth Authority in early 1969, he joined the Southern California Chapter of the Black Panther Party.
After joining the Panthers he became an assest to the community instead of a liability working in the Panther's community based programs like the "Party’s Free Breakfast Program, the tutorial program, selling Panther papers, political education classes and other projects." Chip was also well liked by those in the communities he served. Unfortunately, Chip like so many others in the Panthers became a victim of the illegal CoIntelPro program run the well known racist criminal heading the FBI.
Chip Fitzgerald has served 40 years for his alleged crimes against a racist state and should be set free on time served.

Free Sara Kruzan & Dinesh D'Souza targets Obama

According to The Campaign to Free Sara Kruzan,

Sara Kruzan (d.o.b. January 8, 1978) is a survivor of child molestation, rape, of child-sex trafficking and of intimate battering. March 10, 1994, when child-sex captor G. G. Howard was motioning to rape Sara inside of a hotel room, Sara let off the fatal gunshot that ended her sex-captors life. 


A year later on May 10, 1995, at the age of 17, Sara was convicted of the first degree murder of George Gilbert Howard. Sara was sentenced to life in prison, plus four years, with no possibility of parole. Signed on December 31, 2010, the Governor of California, Arnold Schwarzenegger, commuted Sara’s sentence to life with the possibility of parole, come 2020.

Our guests will update us on new time sensitive efforts to get Sara released from prison.

Have you heard of Dinesh D'Souza? He is a non-white person of East Indian descent who has a conservative propaganda film out raking in millions. The premise of the movie is that President Obama is "anti-colonial". Thousands of people just went to theaters to learn how colonialism is a good thing.

The Mutilation & Misogynation of Gabrielle Douglas

Pam of Trojan Horse Press
Pam of Trojan Horse Press and one of the authors of the book "The Beauty Con Game" joins the program to discuss the pressure put on Gabby Douglas to conform to a false beauty standard for Black women concerning their hair and the concerns that this beautiful melonated teenager will be sexualized by corporate media.


It is a fact that the majority of Black people are not informed on either issue and see nothing wrong with the mutilation of their natural hair or the misogynation of our youth.


I talked to the attorney litigating the class-action lawsuit against New York City for its racist Stop & Frisk program. Attorney Darius Charney from the Center for Constitutional Rights explained the case and what victims should do.

Did San Jose State cover up the murder of Gregory Johnson Jr.?

Gregory Johnson Jr. was found dead in the basement of the Sigma Chi Fraternity at San Jose State University in 2008. Santa Clara County Law Enforcement officials floated a suicide theory that his family is not buying into and they are still seeking justice for the death of this young Black man.


Joining me on the program tonight is Rev. Denise Johnson, the mother of Gregory Johnson to inform us about the case and to share any new developments in her quest for justice. News
Oprah Winfrey recently interviewed Gabby Douglass and while it has not been aired yet, information is leaking out. Ms. Douglass indicated that she suffered terrible racism at the hands of her fellow gymnast and the most harsh abuse came from those enrolled with her at Excalibur Gymnastics in Virginia Beach, VA.

Unfortunately, for Ms. Douglass, it appears she is caught in the middle of the bitter divorce of her parents and while speaking positively about her father in earlier media interviews, she is now implying he was a deadbeat. I’ll review my article on the topic titled “The continued demonization of Gabby Douglas’s father”.

Brian Mulligan, the Managing Director and Vice Chairman of Media for Deutsche Bank alleged he was brutally beaten by Los Angles Police Department officers. He recently filed a 50 million dollar lawsuit. I cannot help but wonder if President Obama will finally address the issue of police brutality now that a white banker has been allegedly victimized. We also wonder how the majority of white people will react, specifically right wing conservative pro-cop types.

Slavery & Jim Crow in "post-racial" America

The biggest lies ever perpuated and being taught in schools is that slavery was abolished in 1863 by the 13th Amendment and Jim Crow ended with the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. When it is legal for corporations to offer states cash to buy their prisoners with an agreement to keep the prisons 90% full, slavery still exist.


When being labled a felon regulates a person to second class citizenship, Jim Crow still exists.
