• Here at New Abolitionist Radio We Salute Colin Kaepernick for receiving the Amnesty International Ambassador of Conscience Award. And another big Salute to Kendrick Lamar who won the Pulitzer Prize for his album “DAMN.” Both men have used their platform to courageously stand up and speak truth to power and we are proud of them. If either becomes an abolitionist critical mass would be right around the corner.
• We want to talk about the mega foolery of Kanye, Candice, and Booker… Actually, no we don’t. They are not worth our time or yours. Let comedy central handle it.
• Well, It’s official. Next week, May 2, 2018, Candidate for the House of representatives district 33 in Alabama, Christopher Scott Brewer will join Max Parthas and Scotty Ried on New Abolitionist Radio. Be sure to listen in and call with your questions in relation to your concerns on the topic of Alabama’s prison and judicial crisis.
• We hear that Rudy Giuliani’s law firm is representing Trump. But while he serves as a sycophant for the president, and rails against Black Lives Matter, his law firm is reaping tens of thousands of dollars lobbying Congress for the biggest operator of private prisons in America. Core Civic.
• Speaking of political idiots who think their crap can’t be detected. Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) confirmed he is putting his name on legislation that he said is aimed at “decriminalizing” marijuana at the federal. We’ll tell you why he’s full of it and trying to clickbait you into the crumbling democratic party.
