'Interviewer Picks The Wrong Obama Supporter to Try To Railroad'

Our June member drive is live: protect this resource!
Right now, we need your help during our short June member drive to keep the local news you read here every day going. This has been a challenging year, but with your help, we can get one step closer to closing our budget gap. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership.

We couldn't pick a better headline than Think On These Things did with this video. The blog, that talks itself up to be "research, commentary, and news on the 2008 Presidential Election with a Pro-Obama Slant" show us this video that has made Derrick, the savvy Obama supporter being interviewed, practically a political YouTube Star. Going by the sobriquet DNA, his locally based "Afropolitan Fusion" style band is Soulfège (check out 'To Be Free' on their MySpace, fresh!)

DNA has started post videos under the band's YouTube account with more of his political talk. Those two vids can be seen below.
