had a great show planned for this Friday, and I was going to be on it.
This was to be town-hall style, featuring an audience of Black
conservatives. Beck has been calling this show one that will not soon
Unfortunately, Glenn has unexpectedly had to
have appendix surgery, so the show is now scheduled to be taped next
Thursday and will most likely be aired on Friday, November 13th.
In anticipation of the upcoming show, last night I was a guest on the Eddie Burke Radio Show
Eddie, Alaska's Best, interviewed me about the Glenn Beck television
show, being a Black conservative, and Governor Palin's involvement in
the NY-23rd Congressional District race.
As this will be
Beck's focus, Eddie and I spoke quite a bit about the issue of race. As
most people know, being Black usually means being a Democrat. Not
subscribing to that worldview opens one up to being called a

come from other Black Americans who don't understand people choosing to
"get off the plantation
as I often say. This interview with Eddie Burke addresses that, how the
liberal agenda is counterproductive to the Black community, how it is
the antithesis of the values so many of us espouse, and even how my
support of Sarah Palin figures into the debate.
When Eddie asked
how I am able to stand by my beliefs when there is such pressure--and
sometimes resentment--placed on Black conservatives, my answer was
simple: "It's just called the courage of your convictions."
asked some great questions during this interview, which led to an
insightful conversation. Be sure to listen to both parts 1
--and be sure to tune into Glenn Beck next week.
