In this edition of The Roland Martin Show, Martin asks listeners what are they willing to stand up and go to war for.
“If we are going to somehow change what is happening in our communities, we’re going to need warriors,” Martin said. “Warriors willing to take back their communities, warriors willing to to have neighborhood patrols, warriors willing to call out Black sellouts who would rather line their pockets as opposed to improving our communities.”
Martin then asked listeners, “Do you have a warrior spirit? What are you willing to fight for?”
Later during today’s edition of The Roland Martin Show, Martin said, “The problem today [is] we ain’t got enough folks who are fearless — who are willing to say what needs to be said — who are willing to challenge people just where they are.”
