Roland Martin Show Audio Podcast: Trump’s Lack Of Specifics, Contention Between POTUS & HBCU Community, Roland’s Rules For MLK Weekend


Amid the vitriol and rhetoric, Roland Martin breaks down the first GOP presidential debate of 2016 and the media proclaiming the awesomeness of Donald Trump despite his lack of specifics.

The five teen defendants arrested in the Brooklyn rape case have been released as the investigation into what actually happened in the park continues. Martin explains the tragic nature of the events that transpired in the case but if these teens are innocent  where do they go and get back their name now that their faces have been splashed all over the media.

Lauren Victoria Burke, Managing Editor of Politic365 spoke to Martin about President Barack Obama’s remarks about HBCU graduation rates. Burke breaks down the uneasiness between Pres. Obama and the HBCU community.

Don’t miss #RolandsRules for MLK weekend. Check out a few of Martin’s requirements for the commemoration of Martin Luther King’s birthday:

  • #MLK gave more than two speeches. So STOP with the “I Have A Dream” and “I’ve Been to the Mountaintop” re-enactments!
  • #MLK had more than a dream. So if you don’t bother talking about the other aspects of his life, then stop wasting our time.
  • If the #MLK Weekend event is more of a check off for you, stay at home.

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