In this episode we discuss the strange alliance between the NAACP and the American Beverage Association in their fight against NYC's controversial soda ban and ponder:

  • Is the NAACP a corporate mouthpiece?
  • How has this unholy alliance affect their brand?
  • From whom does the NAACP derive their funding and how does this alter their mission?
  • As non-members are we the real culprits?
  • Do Black folks need a new type of organization to represent our needs and wants?
  • Is modern Black leadership just a cult of personality?
  • Is the soda ban an assault on civil right or civil liberties?
  • Where on earth is the Black community and who speaks for us?

And much much more...
