Alicia Mendenez Tonight - Fusion TV

Here's my video interview with Alicia Menendez on the new Fusion TV Network. She's in the early stages of media stardom so it was fun to be the uncool middle-age dude on her show. Best part of this interview happened backstage: EVERYBODY WAS BROWN. Producers, technicians, crew, makeup, security were all brown folks. 

The new term is ‘racially insensitive.’ Which is just a longer way of saying ‘racist.’

A print interview about the poetry line that made me want to drop everything and become a poet. That line? "O, Uncle Adrian, I'm in the reservation of my mind." That's from Adrian C. Louis, one of my very favorite poets.
