VIBE AND VEGAS SHOW: WALTER FIELDS - NORTH STAR NEWS.COM - AMERICAS DEBT CEILING HAS BEEN RAISED ... NOW WHAT?
Walter Fields is the Executive Editor of NorthStarNews.com (http://www.northstarnews.com/). The site was founded by Walter and two other gentlemen in 2002. It is dedicated to providing an online service for African Americans and being a source of credible information in order to motivate African Americans to become more engaged. Over the last few weeks, the major news story coming out of America was the debt ceiling issue. Walter provides us some background on the debt ceiling debate and what the parties agreed to and the long term effects especially on African Americans. He also shares with on various subjects such as the unfairness of the current American tax system and why tax increases for the "have gots" were not approved, how divided America is, Americans abandonment to the commitment to equality, the challenges that Barack Obama is facing for his re-election campaign in 2012, what can African Americans and African American men in particular can to improve the economic challenge that many of them currently face. He asks us to not take what is said in the media as the true sentiment of African Americans. Many African Americans are working hard to make things better. Walter feels that "giving back" is a cultural imperative and that African American need to reinvest into their community.
