-- The mainstream has deemed talking about Black people and Black issues as racist. This is evident by the continuous denial to make specific points about disparities in the Black community and tragic instances of attack on those Black people who speak out on behalf of the issues.
Ronald A. Edwards, co-host of the BlogTalkRadio program ON POINT! says, “I’m not speaking for the Black community; I’m speaking on the issues within the Black community.” Edwards’s statement becomes relevant after his statement in the local newspaper about the pro basketball team and their all white starting line up. Many readers of the local paper left racist, defamatory comments about Mr. Edwards versus talking about the fact that yes, the Minnesota Timberwolves did floor an all-white starting five – not unlike the franchises front office.
On today's program, Ronald A. Edwards and co-host Don Allen talk about current events to include the upcoming presidential election and local politics in here Minnesota.
