Tavis Smiley is Black in the Building.
I thought black folks said that Tavis was calling it quits with the State of the Black Union. Then what is this Black Agenda business? I came to the party late and heard Rev. Al Sharpton giving Tavis the “bizness” on his radio show yesterday. Tavis is still upset with President Obama because Obama’s black agenda is invisible. I still don’t know why blacks are surprised because Obama never said he was going to do anything for blacks. You have to stay on Obama like every other president. People drunk “hope and change” like cheap liquor and ended up with a headache. I guess Tavis is going to bring in the “usual suspects” to sit around and talk about Obama. I’m not carrying water for Obama and I’m not cheering for Tavis. Even though I’m not taking sides something is funny in the State of Denmark. The fact that they decided to do this in Obama’s hometown is suspect at best. They are too late if they are trying to shame him. Democrats in Illinois have been doing that since he’s been in office. Today some lady was actually trying to debate Rev Al on the difference between Tavis and Roland Martin. She said that Roland was a mouthpiece for Obama and Tavis is his own man standing up to Obama and his policies. WTH!! Sometimes black folks call Rev. Al with a lot of foolishness. If I was him, I would cut the phone lines but I digress. It’s going to be really interesting to see what happens from this Black Agenda. Maybe Tavis will write another book. Well at least after he finishes publishing R Kelly’s book.
