It's Black History Month and Harriet Tubman is a Cartoon. I believe the cartoon is wonderful artwork. It's just an artist's rendering of a great moment is history and of a person of fact. The music is by Papa's Results, a music group that was on Kenneth Howard Smith's upstart recording label back in 1976 called MasterTrack Records. The group went on to be signed by Warner Elecktra Atlantic (WEA Records).
In this episode we discuss the following:
Russell Simmons' "beef" with CNN's Don Lemon. As well as the backlash to the releaseof Simmons' Harriet Tubman "Sex Tape". In particular, we'll explore the question of whether Simmons went too far i his attempt at humor.
Tonight on a historically offensive edition of the Never Daunted Radio Network, what if beloved abolitionist activist Harriet Tubman, while enslaved, turns the tables on her owner one night by graciously accepting his normally unwanted sexual advances in an effort to blackmail him and earn her freedom. What could go wrong, right? Well, just ask hip-hop icon Russell Simmons, whose new All Def Digital YouTube channel, depicts Tubman having doggystyle sex with her slaver, naturally pissing off just about everyone.Next, a Missouri state representative is suing the federal government for a personal family exemption from the Obamacare birth control mandate on grounds that it violates his religious liberty. Essentially, this guy is suing to keep his wife and daughters from having the option to access free birth control. What a dad!Later, we carry on our #DontBeDumb crusade with news that a Utah beauty pageant winner charged last week with tossing homemade "bottle bombs" from a vehicle is relinquishing her crown...before pageant officials strip her of it. Doesn't get more explosive than that.Finally, a Chinese man was staying at a Bed & Breakfast, but had a night so wild that he drunkenly mistook a shipping container for the B&B and fell asleep inside it, waking up to find that the crate had been loaded aboard a cargo ship set for a two-week trip to Los Angeles. Welcome to America, pal.All this and more, tonight on the Never Daunted Radio Network!
Harriet Tubman Day of Commemoration March 10, 2012- Courtsey “Freedom or die a slave!,” declared Harriet Tubman (1819/20-1913) who freed herself and 300 others from enslavement in the mid-19th century. Tubman’s legacy resounds today in the lives of heirs who move unrestricted and make choices with few constraints.
The statue is the brainchild of former Manhattan Borough President C. Virginia Fields.
