Radio Host Erica Campbell, WLIB 1190AM New York, has Minister Gray on her morning show talking about his experience as part of a delegation of Ministers speaking to President Trump.
There is much for the delegation to account for, but generally Minister Gray is apologetic about how the White House is portraying the meeting and he, personally feels betrayed.
The agenda was organized to discuss a number of issues that are of critical importance to the Black Community and was not properly addressed.
Although, Senator Tim Scott(R) South Carolina, was at the meeting and has subsequently spoke of the meeting on the Public Affairs program ,”Meet the Press,” Minister Gray is pleading for understanding stating categorically, “I am not a Politician.”

Land Rush – Why Poverty?
Directed by Hugo Berkeley andOsvalde Lewat (2012)
Land Rush is the story of the recolonization of Africa by foreign interests (US, Britain, China, South Korea, Saudi Arabia) and their collaboration with corrupt governments and tribal authorities to drive subsistence farmers and their families off their land. Their goal: to create massive for-profit industrial farms based on monoculture export crops.
Nearly 60% of remaining arable land is in Africa – the industrialized world has either paved theirs over or decimated their soils through factory farming.
