Join your host, Angel as we come together as a country to discuss current events & politics. 

Listen as we discuss what's happening in the world from our unique, informed and opposing perspectives; call in and let's see who gets The Final Word on BlogTalkRadio.com on Sunday night at 5pm (PST) 8pm (EST).

A young black man was killed on August 9th. He was shot multiple times by police while walking to his grandmother’s house. He was left to die in the street, his body surrounded for hours by armed sentries while his family and community watched horrified from the sidelines. Michael Brown was unarmed. August 11th would have been his first day of college.  The gun held by a 22-year-old man who was shot dead last week at a southwest Ohio Walmart was just a realistic-looking toy.  Police in the Dayton suburb of Beavercreek fatally shot John Crawford for allegedly waving what appeared to be a rifle at customers in the store. Reports are that the "weapon" may only have been some type of BB or pellet gun that Crawford got and opened in the Walmart.

Black life matters. Yet the police and their media support team have already begun to execute their standard playbook in the aftermath of yet another slain black youth. Tonight we begin this difficult but necessary dialogue by examining each case, both the political and peoples' responses, what contributes to this horrifying trend and what do we do from here? Join us LIVE and have your voice heard.
