Washington Watch with Roland Martin, 05.12.13, Video Podcast

At the top of our agenda this week: for the first time in history, African-Americans had the highest voter turnout of any ethnic group in 2012. How do we use that political power? All eyes this week on the horrific Cleveland kidnappings of three women, now freed. But what about the missing black and Hispanic women who are often ignored by the police and the media? Is Charles Ramsey, the hero who freed the Cleveland captives, being exploited by the media?

In the “Washington Watch” roundtable: political analyst and Georgetown University professor Dr. Chris Metzler; Angela Rye, co-founder and principal at IMPACT Strategies; Charles Lollar, Maryland state director of Americans for Prosperity; Political Analyst; Georgetown University professor Dr. Chris Metzler; and George Curry, syndicated columnist for the National Newspaper Publishers Association.

Plus, this former Baltimore police officer wants to legalize drugs because he says the war on drugs is a complete failure that unfairly targets African-Americans. And I hit the golf links with Don Cheadle, Cedric the Entertainer, Chris Tucker and Sugar Ray Leonard at the George Lopez Celebrity Golf Classic.

All that happening right now on “Washington Watch.”
