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 seventh study session on Frantz Fanon’s 1961 book, The Wretched of the Earth. Born in Martinique in 1925, Fanon is an internationally celebrated psychiatrist who committed his 36 years of life to eradicating White terrorism. He fought for Algerian independence from French colonial domination and black liberation world wide. Fanon also authored Black Skin, White Mask, which is a psychoanalysis of the perversions and neurosis that drives the sexual liaisons between Whites and black people. Interestingly, Fanon himself married a White woman. The writer and psychiatrist died from leukemia the same year The Wretched of the Earth was published; it’s reported that Fanon’s health deteriorated to the point that he dictated portions of the text to his White spouse. Last week’s session invested a tremendous amount of time criticizing the black middle class and how their ineptitude and greed consistently betrays Black liberation. Importantly, Fanon emphasized that black methods of communication must improve if we’re to permanently end White rule. Like many Victims of Racism, Fanon suggests that Whites are ignorant about the murder and rape of Black people. Last week’s session also contained one of Fanon’s most quoted sentences: “Each generation must out of relative obscurity discover its mission, fulfill it, or betray it.”
