Description

It's the aftermath of "Blackout Monday" (8th Sept 2014) - an initiative to get black people around the world to abstain from spending money in non-black owned businesses. I am joined by criminal defence solicitor, political commentator and community activist Kevin Bismark Cobham who seriously and thoroughly critiques the whole idea of "Black Buying Power", the "Black Dollar"/"Black Pound."
