Max Parthas joins us again tonight to discuss several issues but first and foremost he wants to discuss the history of the so-called “Liberty Movements” and their relation to racism and the oppression of non-white people.
Some of the groups and individuals identified as belonging to these Liberty Movements are Ron Paul, Alex Jones, Larken Rose, Jessie Ventura, Glenn Beck, The Tea Party.
It is clear that these people do not plan on budging an inch on their gun rights. Why is that? Another question I have is does it seem like many Black people are ready to surrender theirs?
We will also explore whether or not Black people should be seen as aligning themselves with the Obama administration announcement that they plan to introduce bans on weapons and magazines through executive order.
Is there anything to be gained by the Black community by supporting gun bans?
What are some of the more important things we should be spending political capital on as a voting bloc?
Host Scotty Reid would also ask that you consider that the 13thAmendment does not abolish slavery and key wording allows for the slave trade to continue as a legal institution in the United States.

A petition was published on the White House petition site that asks President Obama to work with Congress to close the slavery loophole in the Constitution and to pay all the enslaved people who work on the prison plantation the federal minimum wage so that they may contribute financially to their families on the outside.
