What does Watermelon Basketballs and Gold Chains have to do with deodorant? The Black Talk Media Project is asking that question. We expected suspected racist white people to defend the Old Spice commercial which aired during the NBA Finals last night but while not surprising, African-AMERICANS are failing to recognize the racial undertones of the not only the commercial but its placement.
In political news, a recent SCOTUS case resulted in the further erosion of so-called "civil rights". The US Supreme Court has ruled in a 5-4 decision in the case Salinas v. Texas, that your right to remain silent can be used against you in a criminal trial should you be charged with the crime for which you are being questioned by police. Texas Prosecutors in the case argued that Salinas’ silence during a police interview prior to his arrest was a “very important piece of evidence” and that only a guilty person would have remained silent when questioned about his connection to a crime. Justice Samuel Alito wrote in the majority opinion that Salinas “was required to assert the privilege in order to benefit from it,” even though a person questioned while under arrest could not have his silence used against him.
Political Prisoner Radio had an opportunity to catch up with the director of Prison Radio, Noelle Hanrahan. She is known most for her radio work with political prisoner and former Death Row member Mumia Abu Jamal in helping him to record and distribute his political commentaries from behind bars. She also participated in the production of the independent film "Long Distance Revolutionary: A Journey with Mumia Abu-Jamal" which is now available on DVD after a successful run in select theaters. We will also get into the repression of Black revolutionary politics in mainstream media.
After the interview we will share some of the latest events and alerts related to political prisoners.

Tonight we want to share a audio clip from a speech Michelle Alexander gave to a church in 2011. In the clip Alexander, a legal scholar who worked as an attorney for the ACLU who worked on racial profiling issues, tells of her awakening to the fact that people who were comparing the legal system today to the system of slavery that was allegedly abolished in the United States.
We also want to share news about the enslaved prisoners who are planning to go on possible hunger strikes and work stoppages at Pelican Bay State Prison in California. According to an attorney, The California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation has already started punishing the enslaved for even thinking about a rebellion against the system of slavery in that state.
World Star Hip-Hop has built a media platform that has become a clearinghouse for the worst of “Urban America” according to a recent Change.org petition created by Supreme Understanding of Supreme Design Publishing.
The petition says, "There are some things that we all should know are wrong. Things like sexually exploiting minors or the mentally ill. The administrators of WorldStarHipHop.com apparently do not share these standards of human decency."
Supreme Understanding will join us tonight along with Scotty Reid of the Black Talk Media Project and members of the Militant Mind Movement on Militant Minded Radio to discuss this issue and why the Black community should be involved in this campaign to stop the exploitation of our most vulnerable people.

You can follow Alexa's reporting on her website and follow her on Twitter.
