One of my old friends and former broadcast partners joins me tonight to discuss the false images of Barack Obama that has been circulated through social media sites by his supporters. Images putting him on par with such great Black leaders like Frederick Douglass, Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X to name a few. I understand the pride that many Black people in America have in seeing a Black President and a Black family in the White House but let us not get carried away in comparing him with such great Black leaders that gave their lives for the Black community, especially when Barack Obama has rejected being identified with the Black community in stating he is not the President of Black America.
As I do every Thursday, I will also re-air an interview from our earlier broadcast of Political Prisoner Radio with Dominique Stevenson who is the Baltimore Director of American Friends Service Committee that runs the Friend of a Friend project in Maryland prisons to address violence among prisoners. This program has come under attack by the politicians in the Maryland state government and we need your help to get the program re-instated.
