October 10, 2007 4:00PM (Central) - “TALKBACK” with Chuck Morse (AM 1280 The Blend - WEIM) "Total Radio for the Heart of New England"
During the Interview, the Host (Chuck Morse – happens to be White) stated that the contributions of Blacks in America are truly awe inspiring given the challenges they have had to face. He also felt that given the number of Blacks in high positions (e.g. Senator Barak Obama, Dr. Condoleezza Rice, and a number of other Blacks) people are more informed than they were in the past reference the difference between Whites and Blacks.
I basically agreed that people are more informed; however, there is still work to be done… To prove that point, I mentioned the fact that I was once asked within the last 12 months by a White male “Why Black People Shoot Their Guns Sideways”. I stated to this man that I had never seen anyone Black shoot a gun sideways and asked if he had ever personally observed this. He responded that he hadn’t personally observed it but had seen it in the Movies and on TV. Hmmmm….
The Interview lasted about 30 minutes with a number of questions and answers. Definitely a good dialogue… Unfortunately, the archive of the Interview is not available at this time. Will let you know when it is.
