Roundtable on Black Military Enrollment

Anthony Bradley joins host Farai Chideya to discuss a range of issues on a Bloggers Roundtable segment of NPR’s “News and Notes” programs. Topics covered include the reduction in Black military enlistment and its effect on the Iraq war effort; the recent controversy over a Department of Homeland Security employee attending a costume party in blackface and dressed as a convict; Oprah Winfrey’s foray into the world of YouTube; and questions surrounding the way money from civil rights organizations for the legal defense of the “Jena 6” has been spent. Joining Anthony on the panel are Monroe Anderson, a columnist for EbonyJet.com and creator of his own blog, and Kim Tempest Bradford of the blog The Angry Black Woman blog.
