    Politics Done Right - Interview with Jack Hunter, the changed Southern Avenger

    in Politics

    Jack Hunter was an aide to Republican Presidential candidate Rand Paul. He helped Rand Paul write his book “The Tea Party Goes to Washington“. He resigned from Rand Paul’s staff when it was revealed that he was the Confederate Flag mask wearing Southern Avenger, the radio personality that espoused racist views on a local South Carolina station.


    This week Jack Hunter penned a mea culpa in The Daily Beast titled “The ‘Southern Avenger’ Repents: I Was Wrong About the Confederate Flag”. His piece was the talk on just about every cable and broadcast news network. I read it and simply said I hope he really gets it and that was that.


    I then watched Jack Hunter’s interview on All In with Chris Hayes. The bell went off in my head. I do not know Jack Hunter’s heart. All anyone can know going forward are his deeds. And if the reformed Southern Avenger who had a mindset that is still prevalent in this country can be a conduit for positive change, then I am willing to try.

    The Racial Divide: With “Southern Rites” Filmmaker, Gillian Laub

    in Culture

    Gillian Laub is a photographer/artist/filmmaker of the critically acclaimed HBO documentary, “Southern Rites”.  Gillian Laub first visited Mt. Vernon, Georgia, in 2002 to photograph the community’s segregated homecoming celebrations. Seven years later, after multiple visits to the area, the New York Times Magazine ran a photo essay, “A Prom Divided,” that documented Georgia’s Montgomery County High School’s racially segregated prom. Not surprisingly, the series generated national outrage that lead to the integration of the proms.


    As the film unraveled, there became more to the intended story of this small town in Georgia…


    A 22 year old black man, Justin Patterson, was shot and killed by Norman Neesmith, a white man who was living nearby in Toombs County.  


    With continued tensions of racial divide, this tragedy changed the course of Gillian’s documentary. 


    On this episode, we’re going to sit down with Gillian Laub to discuss her amazing film, “Southern Rites” and what she sees as a future for this country when it comes to the Racial Divides that affect us nationwide, and not just in the south. 


    Join us on Wednesday, June 24, 2015 at 8:00pm PST/10:00pm CST/11:00pm EST. 


    We invite you to listen by phone and comment by calling (646)200-3148.  Or listen online and join the chatroom conversation here on Blog Talk Radio, or from the Hot Topics Talk Radio website at www.hottopicstalkradio.com/hottopicstalkradio.

    in Movies

    This week we review "Mad Max: Fury Road" starring Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron and Nicholas Hoult directed and written by the original Mad Max director himself, George Miller. It's been 30 years since we last saw the post apocalyptic desert ravaged world of the title character "Mad" Max Rockatansky. From the trailers, the car chases seem more extravagent, the explosions seem bigger and the bizarro cast of mad inhabitants seem even more bizarre. Does the future really belong to the Mad? Tune in this Sunday to find out.
