Washington Watch With Roland Martin, 09.02.12, Video Podcast

At the top of our agenda this week, the “We Built It” GOP nominates Mitt Romney at a government-subsidized convention in a government-subsidized building. How ’bout that?

Republicans use false ads about welfare to fire up White, working-class voters.

The Democrats convene next week in North Carolina, facing lower enthusiasm for Pres. Barack Obama. And how the outcome of the election will affect the healthcare of millions of African-Americans.

In the “Washington Watch” roundtable, Republican strategist Elroy Sailor, founder and CEO of J.C. Watts Companies; Angela Rye, executive director and general counsel of the Congressional Black Caucus; political journalist and griot.com contributor Joseph Williams; and Georgetown University professor Dr. Chris Metzler.

The first African-American president of the largest public-services employees union on the fight to save the American Dream. And a preview of a new film that examines myths about us and the impact they have on African-American men.

All that, plus Black Republicans in their own words. It’s all happening right now on the season premiere of “Washington Watch.”
