    Roland absolutely awesome show this am. Thank you for standing tall and all but one on your show for the nomination of a Black Woman as our Supreme Court Nominee. Black women elected the Governor of VA and have supported this President along with the Black community, now we had a chance to pick an absolutely qualified Black Woman and did not, thereby making sure we don’t have anyone Black on the court to address all issues and representation of the Black Community. Your panel with one exception said it all. Hopefully this conversation will begin in the black community to get the facts, as we have always urged. Too many representing the community are not in support of the community but rather their own interest. The Black community must “vet” everyone regardless of color who says they represent the community particularly Black folk and stop placing blinders on others. Your show this am. relative to this issue should be a lesson for future subjects on the show, rather taking positions, less do the homework, no exceptions, no favors, just get the facts and nothing but the facts. Really proud of you and the guest for helping to set the example of how the Black community must move forward. Simply making sure someone occupies the chair on the Supreme Court does nothing as two folk suggested. We must ensure that that chair is representative of the community. No one person is always right and our support must be earned. It was dissapointing to see two who simply thought the vacancy must be filled period, not the mertis and the importance of filling the vacancy with the right person. Your panel said it all you should tweet this discussion 24/7. Be Blessed, you Blessed us this am.
