I was recently interviewed on “Florida Speaks Out,” a radio show in Ft. Lauderdale, (Mystik Radio 1580 AM). The show is hosted by Brother Jean Jabouin and Ms. Ivy, natives of Haiti and Jamaica, respectively. I was recently interviewed on “Florida Speaks Out,” a radio show in Ft. Lauderdale, (Mystik Radio 1580 AM). The show is hosted by Brother Jean Jabouin and Ms. Ivy, natives of Haiti and Jamaica, respectively. My interview centered on the Cincinnati boycott and the primary cause for it: police brutality and the lack of disciplinary sanctions against police officers that kill Blacks.

The possibility of a boycott of some kind was raised by several frustrated callers to bring awareness and equity to Black folks in Ft. Lauderdale vis-à-vis the recent tragedy in which two young Black men were killed by an ex-FBI agent who was driving drunk. The agent, after standing trial and after the Florida Highway Patrol testi-lied about who was driving the wrong way, beat the charges with what was tantamount to the proverbial and traditional slap on the wrist.
