TVOne Is Bring The DNC From Our Perspective

Hello, its been a long time since I posted something. How are you doing? Is the summer treating you well?

So much is going on... gas is up, 4 day work week might become a reality, and we are on the verge of having an African-American in the White House. YEEES!

It is such a surreal thought, when you think that in a few weeks, Barack Obama will go from "presumptive" nominee to Democratic nominee. What will this mean for people of color? And, what about the REAL elephant in the room, the media refuses to talk about ... race and why it matters? CNN has an exit poll every hour and they can't seem to figure what why Barack is stalled in the polls... well, the man is Black, White Americans might want CHANGE but from a Black man is a tough pill to swallow. Feel me? If we are going to change the party occupancy at 1600 pennsylvania ave, folks are going to have to get over the RACE game and get into the CHANGE game. White, Black, Asian, Hispanic, old, young, must vote for a "CHANGE" and that happen with the election of Barack Obama.

TV-One in an unprecedented move will broadcast live from Denver, August 25-28, 8-11pm with an amazing team of journalists: Roland Martin, Hill Harper, Jacque Reid, Michael Eric Dyson, Marcia Dyson and so many more. What I love about this coverage is that TV-One is committed to capturing the Democratic National Convention from the African American angle which has NEVER been done. Let's support TV-One and give them record ratings each night and LET the mainstream media know that we are multi-dimensional and care about a myriad of issues and not just booty shakin' videos.

Tune in to my show Caviar & Chitlins on Tuesday, August 19th, 6:30pm and hear from my guest Susan Banks, Executive Vice President, Marketing and Creative Services at TV-One. Susan Banks will share with us what to expect from TV-One's coverage and why TV-One is going all out to make certain that OUR voices are heard.

One Love!
