So being on commercial radio (Clear Channel) and being the creator of Fresh Radio and being involved in the community but not that well know…I have to watch what I say and how I react normally. It can be taken the wrong way even if I mean well.
My father was a black panther and is in the Nation now and my pops raised me to think on my own. As well as help uplift our community.
The problem is, if I speak on certain things…it could chain react. I work for Clear Channel Media and if I talk about my political beliefs on the air…who knows what will happen…Romney is co-founder of Bain Capital which are one of the primary owners of Clear Channel. Say the wrong thing…I have my kids to feed.
There was a boycott to a particular club…and by the way things are it’s been lifted because people will get some free chicken? Along with some other changes that are needed of course but I got offended. Say something…why I wouldn’t I but how about they’re one of the largest local accounts at my job!
So I was given great advice…pick and choose my battles…believe me when it gets out of hand…I will always speak out and I will always be able to feed my kids!
