Nicki Minaj's weak ass excuse for not commenting on racism

Raging Against Ratchet Rap Radio w/ Kwabena Sakidi Jijaga Rasuli

Kwabena Sakidi Jijaga Rasuli of the Clear The Air Waves Project will be joining us to update us on the movement to clear the radio airwaves of terrestrial radio states operating on the public airwaves of the ratchet rap music being sponsored by well known corporations. He will also talk to us about the 2014 year in Ratchet Rap and if there is way to tie in the current state of ratchet rap to police terrorism.

Interestingly, many rap stations are switching to a "classic rap" format but are they switching to the classic ratchet rap of the 90s or the classics of the 80s.? In the news,

Washington Post article distorted "Every 28 Hours" report

Today we will be joined by Arlene Eisen, the author of the Operation Ghetto Storm report on extrajudicial killings of Black people in the United States. A recent blog posted by the Washington Post distorts the finding of the report and we want to give the authors of the report who were not consulted by the writer of the post. Update: WAPO "Fact Checkers" at the time of this post has kept showing up as deleted. Arlene Eisen has made a living as a journalist, teacher (including a short time at University of Havana) and machinist. She has written two books about Vietnamese women, one was translated into 5 languages. After Katrina she worked for the Peoples’ Hurricane Relief Fund in New Orleans, mostly editing their newsletter and other written materials. Eisen started work on Operation Ghetto Storm after Trayvon Martin's murder and before George Zimmerman was charged. She then spent the next 18 months researching and writing a first quarter report, half year (every 36 hrs) and then the annual (OGS or #every28)—all of which was initially published by Malcolm X Grassroots Movement.
