Michael Carter, Sr., the National President of Black Wall Street, USA joins us again on Black Talk Radio to discuss some of the latest activities of Black Wall Street. I reached out to Black Wall Street after seeing a petition to President Obama asking him to sit down with CBC chairperson Marsha Fudge to address the needs of his Black constituents that voted for him in overwhelming numbers. Mr. Carter then informed me of the desecration of the Black Wall Street site in Tulsa, Oklahoma, something that has not made national news headlines and how there are still Black bodies yet to be uncovered and the real death toll of the victims of white supremacy violence runs into the thousands. He will also update us again on the mission of the organization Black Wall Street, USA and some of the projects it has going on.

Louisiana has its first so-called Black Republican state Senator since Reconstruction but there is a catch. Senator Guillory, of Opelousas, LA, was originally a Republican, but switched to Democrat to run for office in 2007–the district he represented was a huge majority Democrat district. But now, Guillory says he can no longer remain a Democrat, that the party has left him and other social conservatives behind. He recently got a "Frederick Douglass" and it is common for Black conservatives to hijack Douglass's name and image but where do they stand ideologically with the famed abolitionists?
