Shameless Self-Promotion: Listen to Chauncey DeVega Discuss Paul Ryan's Racism on SiriusXM's "Make It Plain"

I have received some very nice emails and comments regarding my recent essay on Paul Ryan, the Irish, whiteness, and his anti-black racism and hypocrisy. It is one of my most popular commentary/news analysis pieces and has been shared 12,000 times on Facebook while generating a good amount of traffic here on We Are Respectable Negroes.

I was fortunate enough to be invited on Mark Thompson's SiriusXM radio show "Make it Plain". We had an informative discussion about Paul Ryan's racism and how it is part a larger pattern of anti-black and brown racism by the Republican Party. Make it Plain also had some earnest and bright callers who I enjoyed chatting with.

We do some good work here. It is always great to talk to a new audience, and I hope that my appearance on SiriusXM will open up some other opportunities for me--that fingers crossed--I have been angling for these last few years.

[I have a "no-prize" in the spirit of Larry Hama's G.I. Joe for the first person to catch the funny error that I made twice during the radio appearance.]

We have this tailspin of culture in our inner cities in particular, where you have generations of men that don't know the value of work, who don't value work and just live off the wealth their parents' parents' parents generated, who just sit around all day living off the tit of their trust fund. They expect handouts and expect the best education through nepotism and their parents' contacts without putting in the hard work to succeed.

There's this whole culture that has grown up without learning the value and the culture of hard work and something has to be done about it. You need to get involved, whether through charity programs or religious organizations or through the government, someone needs to get involved in some sort of mentoring program that teaches these wealthy privileged kids the value of money and hard work. There are no free lunches.
