Recently Michael Eric Dyson and Glen Ford, editor of BlackAgendaReport.com took off the gloves and debated the Obama presidency, evil or progressive. The discussion gave light to many of the issues that democrats think about, but seldom react to.
Below is the video of the discussion aired on “Democracy Now” on September 7, 2012. Are we being complacent in accepting the policies of the current administration in matters that we disagree, or is the just a matter of playing the cards we are dealt?
Please comment after viewing.
