Commentator and host Lenny McAllister hints to the need for Black male leadership similar to the rise of Civil Rights leaders from the 1950s and 1960s.

PITTSBURGH CABLE NEWS CHANNEL (February 20, 2015): Political and social commentator Lenny McAllister (Host, “NightTalk: Get to the Point”) believes that for African-Americans and the United States overall to turn around, there is a need for Black male leadership to take their effectiveness to another standard and level.

 

I mentioned the need for an immediate black renaissance throughout Pittsburgh and America in order for our region and nation to fulfill its potential. That will only come about with a resurgence of successful black men in corporate America, the halls of academia, and the streets of a civil rights movement…”

 

McAllister uses his “Starting Point” commentary to highlight this need further during Black History Month 2015 during this clip from the February 20 episode of “Get To The Point” on the Pittsburgh Cable News Channel .

Teen Mass Violence: The Non-Discriminatory American Epidemic

In Articles on September 1, 2014 at 1:48 pm

Today’s teen violence is a problem that transcends race, gender, and socioeconomic level – and it’s likely a symptom of an adult problem

 

NEW YORK CITY/ PITTSBURGH (April 16, 2014) – (Courtesy Global Grind / BmoreGossip)

 

“As a native of Pittsburgh living here during the aftermath of the Franklin Regional High School tragedy last week and as a former resident on the south side of Chicago for several years, perhaps I have a unique perspective on the incidents of violence in America, especially youth-initiated violence and urban violence.

 

“And, despite what you may have heard from the pundits around the nation and the folks at your modern-day water cooler (be it real or via social media) recently, this is not about race, gender, creed, or socioeconomic level.

 

“The teen violence – and, notably, the mass violence – we continue to see across the nation from ongoing gang wars in Chicago to mass assaults in the “Era of Columbine” has less to do with how we educate our boys, the geographical locations of the tragedies, or the skin color of the assailants. Teen violence, urban violence, and mass violence – much of which being committed by people younger than 25 years old – are symptoms of an American problem, not a demographic problem.

 

“It’s as simple as that.”

“The NRA’s problem isn’t about not advertising to the Black community. Its problem is about the bad advertising that goes to Black America and urban America everyday at 5 o’clock, 6 o’clock, 10 o’clock, and 11 o’clock on the daily newscasts shown throughout the nation due to the urban violence we’re experiencing…”

NEW YORK CITY / CHICAGO (August 12, 2013– (Courtesy Huff Post Live) If guns are supposed to be used primarily for safety and protection as the NRA would argue, then why are they almost exclusively marketed towards only white people? Is there a place for people of color in gun culture?
