Sun. 13 Jan. 2013: "Fair Use" excerpts from episode of "Update with Doris Moore Bailey"

UPDATE (no pun intended) Today, Sun. 15 Jan. 2017, is one day before MLK, Jr. Day, 2017, which falls on Monday, January 16, 2017. I'm updating the video notes to include additional helpful resources about remaining oppression & mistreatment of Black Americans.

Apparently, this was the Sunday, 13 January 2013 programme, as suggested by my Mon. 14 Jan. 2013 thank you note, the following day, to Ms. Bailey: http://GordonWatts.com/DorisMooreBail... and http://GordonWayneWatts.com/DorisMoor... and the fact that this episode was shortly before MLK, Jr. Day, 2013, which fell on Monday January 21, 2013, eight (8) days later.

Here's a small 'Fair Use' clip (less than 10 minutes) of a long 1-hour program where, I call in to 'Update with Doris Moore-Bailey' (WLKF-Talk 1430 AM, Lakeland, FL, U.S.A.) & discuss the topic at hand: Has Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s dream been realised -or deferred?

We all agree that Dr. King's dream wasn't just for African Americans, but rather ALL people & is more than just financial in nature; also social. My call addressed yet another form of oppression: College Students who are victims of predatory lending. Several other callers have very good insight. Listen & be blessed! :-D

UPDATE: Here are the additional resources about remaining prejudices & mistreatment of Blacks:

* "Black-white disparity in student loan debt more than triples after graduation," by Judith Scott-Clayton and Jing Li, The Brookings Institution, Thursday, October 20, 2016: https://www.brookings.edu/research/bl...

* "Blacks owe nearly twice as much student debt as whites four years after graduating college—and they are three times more likely to default." Source: "Black College Grads Owe Nearly Twice as Much Student Debt as Whites Four Years Out: The findings suggest the past decade’s surge in student debt is affecting blacks far more than any other racial group," by Josh Mitchell, Wall Street Journal, Oct 20, 2016: http://blogs.wsj.com/economics/2016/1...

* "Four years after graduating college, black students owe nearly twice as much student debt as their white peers do and are three times more likely to default on those loans, according to a new paper by the Brookings Institution."

* "A new study of the gaps in student loan debt between black and white young adults both confirms reports of the gap and provides new details. The study, published in the journal Race and Social Problems, finds that black young adults have 68.2 percent more student loan debt, on average, than do white young adults."

* EDITOR: I think it's time we revisit *my* guest column:
