Host Cecil Prescod speaks with Kevin Williams, writer, director and editor of the film "FEAR OF A BLACK REPUBLICAN: Does the Republican Party Really Want More African Americans?"

From the Civil War to FDR, the GOP was the party for African-Americans. Today, less than 10% of African Americans consider themselves to be Republican. This documentary film explores the phenomenon of Black Republicans, their battles with Democrats and their own Party, their struggle for power and acceptance within the African-American community and how this affects Black America and Urban America.

Today, many Black Republicans keep their political views to themselves or within family circles.  Some endure insults like “Traitor,” “Uncle Tom” or “Oreo Cookie.” Based on their political beliefs, some question whether one can really be Black and a Republican at the same time.  What does this mean for the future of America’s Two-Party Political System and Urban America?

Beginning in his hometown of Trenton, NJ, independent filmmaker Kevin Williams takes a non-partisan journey over four years, two Presidential Elections and eleven states to find out if the Two-Party Political system in Urban America may be failing his city and the country.; In taking a self-critical look at his own Republican Party, Williams focuses his camera on the GOP’s efforts in the African-American community and examines the history and lives of Black Republicans; the GOP’s campaign strategy in urban areas versus the suburbs; media perceptions of Black Republicans; Republican Party efforts to recruit African-Americans; Democratic Party efforts and success in retaining the African-American vote; what both parties are doing today and what it means to be a “Black Republican.”

The film screens November 17th at Portland State University

Cecil Prescod hosts a show about the so-called Super Committee's possible proposals for cuts to Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid and the effects the cuts might have on Americans. His guest are Nancy J. Altman, who has a thirty-five year background in the areas of Social Security and private pensions and Greg Margolis of Portland Jobs with Justice.  Nancy Altman is co-director of Social Security Works and co-chair of the Strengthen Social Security coalition and campaign.   She is the author of The Battle for Social Security:  From FDR’s Vision to Bush’s Gamble.

Local advocates in states represented by the 12-member “Super Committee” recently released new reports detailing the projected fall-out resulting from the committee’s proposed cuts to Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid. In the eleven Super Committee states represented, 20.3 million Americans receive Social Security, 18.5 million Americans receive Medicare, and 21.4 million Americans receive Medicaid.

The so-called Congressional “Super Committee” is just 30 days from its deadline. As lobbyists attempt to save tax cuts for millionaires and billionaires, the new reports reveal a possible economic crisis for many Americans should the committee vote to cut benefits. The full reports are available at http://www.strengthensocialsecurity.org/super-committee/

Opinion poll after opinion poll show that the vast majority of Americans want no cuts to Social Security, Medicare or Medicaid.

A backward agenda: Using Solyandra failure to end support for clean energy

program: 
More Talk Radio
program date: 
Mon, 10/03/2011

Solyndra, a solar power company that got more than half a billion dollars in loan guarantees from a Department of Energy Recovery Act program, went bankrupt at the beginning of September. The reason why it happened and who’s to blame is still unclear, but that’s not the main issue taking place in the political field.

Opponents of clean energy who favor fossil fuels want the U.S. public to think that clean energy is weak, unreliable, marginal, and dependent on government subsidies. They have been trying to make that case for a long while. They are trying to use Solyndra as a symbol, something to use as a stand-in to discredit not just the DOE loan program, but all government support for clean energy.

When “Climategate” first broke back in late 2009 right-wing conservatives opened a massive attack coordinated among ideological media, staffers, lobbyists, and politicians. When the left took action, it was too late.

This is what is happening now around Solyndra. The conservatives are going after this.

Hosts Celeste Carey and Cecil Prescod speak with Laurie Johnson, Chief Economist, Climate Center, National Resources Defense Council, about why clean energy shouldn’t be discredited entirely because of one failed solar power company.

My error

Hi, Cecil, I called in to your fine program this morning to give the announcement about Imam Mamadou Toure's presentation at the Quaker Meetinghouse. Apparently I gave the wrong date: the correct date is Friday, January 25. I would greatly appreciate it if you could give that date on next week's program, I'm sorry to have confused things.
Peace, Jim Metcalfe
