Black History Month with Norman Otis Richmond.
Norman Otis Richmond, Joel Richardson
This Black History Month, Phil begins with the racist and war-like politics of the Superbowl. Phil goes on to describe the American Crusade Against Lynching organized in the USA supported by WEB Dubois, Paul Roberson, and Albert Einstein. Writer Norman Otis Richmond is interviewed about his recent article, "Negro History Week to African Liberation Month." His view is that Black History Month has been hijacked by the black petit-bourgeoisie, banks and hamburger chains to sanitize it rather than promote black liberation fighters.
Phil talks to Joel Richardson, artist and film-maker about his new work, "The Brock Johnson Story", whose trailer includes, "Brock's life is turned upside down and inside out when his neighbourhood cocaine dealer (the same dealer as the Mayor) gives him a tip on a story that could change his life... and end the life of his dealer." Does this sound like a spoof of a certain major Canadian city?

Developments in Syria and Turkey: Israeli involvement; Lebanon as a beach-head against Syria. Joel Richardson on the power of images
Mahdi Darius Nazemroaya, Joel Richardson
We are once again being let down wall-to-wall by corporate media. Events in Syria are coming to a turn. Russia and the United States are having a meeting, after delaying attempts by France.
But just what kind of war is being fought? The Toronto Star quoted an Imam from Qatar - his language was utterly inflammatory and sectarian. Mahdi Nazemroaya has the answers, including Israel's involvement. Israel is using Lebanon to attack Syria.
In Turkey, Erdogan's attempt to gain popularity through fake support for the Palestinian cause is wearing thin. His 'neo-Ottoman' policy was always the subordination of Islam to capitalism. Erdogan's covert war on Syria has destroyed Turkish trade with the Arab world.
Joel Richardson is a Toronto artist and muralist - if you pass through Toronto's underpasses on the West end of the city, you often find Richardson's murals.
Phil asks him to identify his murals. Richardson plans to set a world record on the number of people engaged in wearing suits and meditating simultaneously in an attempt to reverse policy on development.
He also describes his involvement in the Occupy Movement in liberating the wall of the J.P. Morgan building.
