7:00 PM EST - Max and Yusuf have been providing educational radio podcast content for the abolitionist movement since 2010. On 1/17/2021 we are joined by our former co-host Yohanan Elijah. We're also being syndicated on the Black Talk Radio Network courtesy of Scotty T Reid. In the midst of a national insurrection by white supremacists, these Veteran Abolitionist Witnesses come together for the first time in years to testify of what they have seen and discuss the bigger picture of then, now, and tomorrow.
Donald J. Trump has become the first POTUS to be impeached twice. While some pundits on both the left and right will claim that the first impeachment was a witch hunt, I disagree, Trump was absolutely guilty of the charges that a formal House inquiry found evidence that he had solicited foreign interference in the 2020 U.S. presidential election to help his re-election bid, and then obstructed the inquiry itself by telling his administration officials to ignore subpoenas for documents and testimony.
7:00 PM EST - Two activists from the Chicago area have been taking on the radio stations that play a type of rap that is known for its lyrics promoting acts of murder, rape, and misogyny to name a few.
The Context of White Supremacy hosts the 7th study session on Harriet A. Washington’s extraordinary text, Medical Apartheid: The Dark History Of Medical Experimentation On Black Americans From Colonial Times To Present. Washington’s amazing work exposes deliberate, premeditated exploitation of black bodies under the guise of “science.” Washington’s research should reconstitute how black people process the scientific developments of whitefolks – like the “crispr” gene editing technology and DNA tracing websites that stockpile genetic material. Last week’s session offered a brilliant assessment of the Tuskegee Syphilis Experiment. Washington reminded us that Nurse Eunice Rivers is the name most often associated with the study, but she was one of the least powerful, least educated members of the predominantly White staff that conducted this shameful exercise. Washington also questioned the ultimate purpose of this 40 year exercise, where Whites using these black males to keep a fresh culture of the virus for further research? In chapter eight, she analyzed the history of eugenics and the willful effort to control and minimize the birthrate of non-white people. Margaret Sanger was a seminal figure in this movement. Medical Apartheid should be mandatory reading for attempted counter-racists and all black people.
