Yeshitela looks at the recent trial of white nationalist Michael Dunn in his on the street execution of 17 year old Jordan Davis in November 23, 2012 in Jacksonville, Florida.

Turning to the recent events in Venezuela, Yeshitela exposes the imperialist strategy of destabilization.

As Colorado and other states move to legalize and decriminalize marijuana, Chairman Omali states the position of APSP and targets the unaddressed factors that impact African and other oppressed communities - as he makes it clear that "The State has formally become a drug pusher."
