The new film Fruitvale Station purports to tell the true story of Oscar Grant, a young black man who was shot bu a BART police officer near Oakland on New Year's Day in 2009. The accidental shooting sparked riots and made major news in black and leftist media.
Does the film get the story right?
Lee Stranahan explains the real background of the story and the myth that's built up around it; it's a potent reminder of the rift between black and white America and the dangers that it can cause.

As Lebron James contemplates his free-agent future, POPSspot Sports Radio takes a look back at the 4-year anniversary of "The Decision" - July 8, 2010. Lebron's famous declaration to "take his talents to South Beach" overshadowed the other famous decision that day -- the slap-on-wrist sentencing of Johannes Mehserle, the white Oakland police officer caught on videtape killing Oscar Grant. Ultimately, Mehserle would only serve only 11 months, and his release from jail which would also occur on the same day as the last game of the 2011 NBA Finals. Each time, the incredibly negative attention given to Lebron overshadowed mass protests that surrounded both Mehserle's sentencing and release. During this period, few outside of Oakland would even recognize the name of Johannes Mehsele at all.
Local outcries begging the nation to be concerned about Oscar Grant and the vulnerable lives of youth of color would be replaced by protests, hatred, and publically burnt jerseys of one Black man.This week's special guest is the Ms. Wanda Johnson, the mother of Oscar grant who has been a tireless voice for justice in policing since her son's death.
