UPDATE: Photo added
Here we are from left to right Adrienne Ross of Motivation: Truth, yours truly from Another Black Conservative and Maria from My Voice on the Wings of Change. Notice I made sure to wear a jacket that had my Right To Life rose on it! Maria is sporting an American flag lapel pin [so anti Obama are we].
As all of you can tell by now I did not get to speak, neither did Maria or Adrienne [believe me guys, we tried]. Sorry for the let down, but those are the breaks. I did not tell you last night because I wanted you to see the show for yourself.
I have to admit; on edit the show was much better than live. During the actual taping it seemed almost like a free for all, jumping from topic to topic.
I would have liked to discuss Charles Payne’s story more. His story, is a story known all too well in the black community but never seems to actually get addressed. Payne’s story speaks to that unofficial “litmus test of black authenticity”. This litmus test is one of the keys that leads to the monolithic voting habit of blacks. I think I will blog on the topic later to fully flesh it out for you.
Also, I think Beck’s people might want to tweak their screening process. When I was mingling before the taping, I clearly found people who were not conservative by the wildest stretches of the imagination.
Little back-story here, Beck has not fully recovered from his operation. I was surprised how apparent that was in person but hardly detectable on screen.
I think if Beck does the show again, a tighter focus of topics would help as well.
Adrienne is sending me a photo of the three of us outside Fox. Will have it up as soon as I get it. The photo taken on my cellphone camera came out really really bad.
