(SOAPBOX #86) This Sunday (February 6th), Cindy celebrates February by hosting Larry Pinkney, previously a two time January guest (in 2009 & 2010) – in this month instead.  Brother Larry Pinkney is an editorial board member of Black Commentator, a veteran of the Black Panther Party, the former Minister of Interior of the Republic of New Africa and a former political prisoner.  He’s the only American to have successfully self-authored his civil/political rights case to the United Nations under the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights.  He’s been a distinguished activist and solidly established as an intelligent and perceptive commentator for a good time now.  We recommend examples of his incisive and trenchant observations – here, here and here.  Larry and Cindy analyze our nation’s prospects, as President Obama heads into his 3rd year.  Larry observes that Barack Obama has widened the bloody wars in Afghanistan and Iraq and rained down bloody missile death from the skies – on Pakistani civilians.  To award a Nobel Peace Prize for such Chicagoland-style gangsterism on a world scale is beyond absurd. It mocks the very idea of the Nobel Peace Prize itself.  Black white and brown red and yellow people all need to be aware of that.  (I thank you for your insights, my dear brother Larry.)
