Of course I don't always agree with Roland; and no, I'm not a fan of the Ascot; but, I do admire his tenacity with which he often defends his position publicly whether he's right or wrong. Speaking of which, he's 100% correct in the following video. The following video is the latest in TV One's "The Back Room" installment. And in it, he discusses the subject of black folks choosing to be passive and press president Obama on issues that directly affect us directly, and indirectly, which overall has a negative impact on society at large.
The idea for some, is that "we" should wait until POTUS has secured a second term in office to start making demands. A stance or position that is justified by the notion that president Obama can't be perceived to be "helping black folk," because to do so would alienate white voters, who in turn would refuse to vote for him. Of course you guys know that I think this idea is foolish and dare I say akin to the slave-like mentality some of us are afflicted with. However, it was good to see Roland express the same concern with Kelli Goff, Contributing Editor of TheLoop21.com, and for that, he gets major props from me..
