On The Show:

-As of late, the corporate media has had a sick fascination with demonizing African-American Men. Two recent examples include NFL Players Ray Rice & Adrian Peterson. Rice, who had a incident of domestic violence with his then girlfriend - now wife Janay Rice - admitted to the incident to NFL's Authorities when asked and received punishment of a 2 day suspension.

The punishment was not good enough for the Media, who kept pressing NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell for more punishment by suspending Rice indefinitely. Now Rice is appealing via the Players Union is Suspension. Is this right and has the media made Rice's situation worse?

-Should Adrian Peterson, another African-American NFL Player be tried and convicted in the Media for alleged child abuse against his four year old son, before his day in a court of law? Is the media equality worried about children being abused daily in all types of households across America or is it Peterson Race and Financial Status that's riding this story?
