"Yes, #BlackLivesMatter when civil rights are trounced during police interactions. Yet, do #BlackLivesMatter when it comes to educational equality by way of school vouchers, inequalities in careers from boardrooms to courtrooms, or – say - the sanctity of the pro-life movement?”

He uses this “Starting Point” commentary at the beginning of the show to challenge the audience and the GTTP (Get To The Point) Panel on how the activist-led movement is going in the days ahead and how widespread this hashtag-driven agenda will extend as a movement in the coming months and years ahead for equality for Blacks in America.

New Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf (D) addresses the crowd during his January 20th Inauguration in Harrisburg.

PITTSBURGH CABLE NEWS CHANNEL (January 23, 2015): “Profound leadership is capable of identifying and capturing key moments of time to inspire communities to noteworthy action, all for the sake of changing the course of history for the better. It takes a tone that elevates past rhetoric and wish lists – partisanship and apathy – broken trust, broken promises, and a broken past…Being a high-profile public speaker and being an orator are two different things. One communicates ideas – one inspires positive change.”

 

Political commentator Lenny McAllister (host, “NightTalk: Get to the Point”) uses his “Starting Point” commentary to start of the PCNC Friday evening show to discuss the challenges addressed by the new governor of Pennsylvania and the lame-duck President of the United States during their January 20 speeches.

LISTEN: “The McAllister Minute” (October 17, 2012)

In The McAllister Minute on October 17, 2012 at 4:44 pm

Did the American people win the second presidential debate, getting enough specifics and plans from the candidates running for the 2012 White House? Listen to “The McAllister Minute” and catch Lenny’s perspective.

 

“So, what have we learned during this 2012 race for the White House, especially after Tuesday night’s 2nd presidential debate?  Well, we learned that polls matter.  We learned that the perception of looking presidential matters. And we learned that how you perform in debates – really does matter.

 

“What we’re still waiting for – however- is if what you say in presidential debates these days really matters as well.

 

“For all of the critique of Governor Mitt Romney’s stylistic fall from grace Tuesday nigh and for all of the glowing reviews of President Obama’s re-emergence as an energized candidate at the town hall forum, there’s still something missing.

 

“Who’s telling us more of the facts: the facts over what happened over the past 4 years and the facts behind their plans for the next 4 years?

 

“But, until November 6, it’s time for us to get off of the waves of opinion polls and public perception based on sound bites – and get on the boat when it comes to the push to get answers from these candidates.

 

“The presidential candidates can gather all of the style points they want. Both have had victories doing that so far. The sad thing is: America won’t score another economic victory in the 21st century – or secure a much-needed economic comeback –if we don’t make these candidates talk about solutions, not merely talk about each other.”
