Washington Watch w/Roland Martin, 05.09.10 [Transcript]

05/09/2010 2:14 pm 0 comments

At the top of our agenda this week, a fourth straight month of strong job creation, but is it reaching the African-American community? A new crop of African-Americans are running as Republicans for office. Will it divide the Black vote? And what can the foiled New York City terror plot teach us about staying safe at home? Our “Washington Watch” newsmaker this week: Dr. Stephen Flynn, president of the Center for National Policy on playing your part to keep your family and America safe from attack. In our “Washington Watch” roundtable, Deborah Mathis, BlackAmericaWeb.com contributor; Hazel Trice Edney, editor-in-chief of the National Newspaper Publishers Association News Service; Robert Traynham, host of “Roll Call TV” on the Comcast Network; and Cornell Belcher, Democratic political strategist and pollster.

And, no, he didn’t. The Daily Show ‘s Jon Stewart has the nerve to attack Roland Martin on his style of dress. Roland has something to say about that! All that and more today on “Washington Watch.”
