Washington Watch w/Roland Martin, 10.09.11 [Transcript]

At the top of our agenda this week, the latest jobs report is better than expected, but it’s still a disaster for African-Americans. Herman Cain tied for first or second in the polls. Can he actually win the GOP nomination?

Republicans in these red states are trying to keep many from voting. How can you fight back? Our “Washington Watch” newsmaker, Labor Secretary Hilda Solis, on how to lower the unemployment rate and get more jobs. And Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed has advice for the President on how to get his jobs bill passed. Plus, Actor Brian White on how he’s giving young people the tools they need to be successful, as well as a sneak peek at his new movie “The Heart Specialist.”

In our “Washington Watch” roundtable, syndicated columnist, George Curry; American Urban Radio Networks’ White House correspondent April Ryan; MSNBC contributor and Democratic strategist Karen Finney; and Georgetown University political science professor Dr. Chris Metzler.

All that and more in this week’s edition of “Washington Watch.”
