recent interview about his lawsuit vs the cable tv system

 

 

he is fighting for ownership by blacks... 

 

I give him credit for his attempt to bring attention to this blatant racist discrimination occurring with the Cable industry, however,it is given with much reservation because I've never heard of anything that he did for African America, or of him addressing or fighting for or against anything Black people were fighting for or against, until he was unable to obtain the deal he wanted with the Cable industry; then all of a sudden, he's all "Black" and concerned about the racial discrimination and unfairness that Black people face in this country. 

 

He is making a good point about tokenism.  Puff Daddy, Al Sharpton,  and Magic are just pawns trying to make their ownership of channels seem more than it is.  I agree with the concept of ownership, not just on this scale, but on an individual basis for all of us.  Own your home, start a business, and buy land.  We need to get back to basics as a race.
