"Blaming Obama for the Sherrod mess is like blaming Martin Luther King Jr. for stepping in front of that bullet that was fired from James Earl Ray's rifle."
I will be on the radio tomorrow evening at 8:30 pm EST with Sean Yoes, senior reporter at The Afro American, giving my own two cents on the Shirley Sherrod mess. Yoes is the host of "The WEAA/AFRO First Edition", an hour-long political talk show on Baltimore's NPR affiliate WEAA-FM (88.9 FM), which airs Sunday nights at 8 p.m.
This week we talk about Shirley Sherrod, FOX News, Andrew Breitbart, and delve into who controls the racial narrative in our media. Ordinarily, I publicize this the day the show airs, but we had so much fun with this I am starting early, because I really think you will enjoy a viewpoint on this that you are probably not going to get anywhere else.

As always, it was fun. Check it out the entire show if you have a chance - each segment looks at the Sherrod situation on this week's show.
