Witches' Brew: Black “Leaders” Beef Over Obama’s Agenda?

Black “Leaders” Beef Over Obama’s Agenda?

The Rev. Al Sharpton and Tavis Smiley exchanged some heated debate this morning on Sharpton's radio show.  The two got into some he-said, he-said stuff about whether President Obama should specifically focus on a “Black agenda.” The exchange got personal when Rev. Al told Tavis not to talk to him like he’s stupid or distort him. At the crux of the whole debate is whether our president should have a decidedly "Black" agenda that focuses on programs to help African-Americans (Black folks…. however you prefer to identify). Take a listen…

Here's the New York Times article they're squabbling about, BTW.  So, what’s your call? Should Pres. Obama have a Black agenda?

It's not often that I agree with Rev. Al Sharpton.......but......he's absolutely right this time. I do believe; however, that at times he struggles with the reality of the fact that he's no longer relevant.
