Roland Martin Show Audio Podcast: African Americans Wield $1.1 Trillion Purchasing Power, But Are We Spending Too Much?


In this edition of The Roland Martin Show Audio Podcast, Martin discusses the buying power of the African American community verses the diminutive savings of the Black community as a result of “keeping up with the Joneses.”

Martin also asks listeners how are they altering their financial spending habits in 2016 along with what are their financial goals.

Rev. Jesse Jackson joins the conversation to share his views about individuals in the African American community becoming “consumer addicts” more interested in brand names, using credit to make purchases and ultimately “paying more for less.”

Plus, President Barack Obama announces a series of executive order actions aimed at reducing gun violence in America.

All that and more in this edition of “The Roland Martin Show” Audio Podcast.
