The RIPPA and Max Reddick are the hosts of Freedom Through Speech Radio. RIPPA is on my blog roll with The Intersection Of Madness And Reality. Max Reddick's is on my blogroll with soulbrother v.2.

Their F.T.S.R. shows are usually a riot, and this week, the Brown Man himself will be their guest. Tonight's main topic is "The Black Vote: Taken For Granted, Ignored, Or Necessary?" 

The F.T.S.R promo:
The black vote is important because it represents the behavior of a group of people whose voting power had been denied. However, the black vote is unique because African American voting behavior is intrinsically rooted in the people's history. Since the Reconstruction, the general behavior of blacks is to vote in block, either for one party or the other. Until Roosevelt came into the presidency and began the New Deal, blacks were committed to the Republican party.

So what happened? Looking back at the 2008 presidential elections, where blacks voted overwhelmingly Democrat, the question still remains: Just what went wrong or has changed? 

Tonight we'll break it down with a robust panel of guests representative of Democrats, Republican, and Independents. Most notably to present the case for the Republican party, will be Lenny McAllister, the Hip Hop Republican. Central to our discussion is the question: Which party today, best represents the interest of black America? Tonight, our guests will all make their best case for the parties with whom they identify. Do join us, feel free to share your opinions, and you be the judge, on Freedom Thru Speech Radio at 8pm EST/7pm CST.

I guess I'm one of the Independents.  I've never met the Hip Hop Republican before, so this should be interesting, although something tells me he is nowhere near as entertaining as the Hip Hop Republican Number One, RNC chairman Michael Steele.

This program is uncensored - maybe its the "no rules, all exceptions" motto - so be forewarned, but the two times I've listened to it, I heard less profanity than you get on the Bill Maher Show.
