One thought on “Lee Daniels Signs On For ‘Victory’ A Show About Gospel Choirs

  1. Hi Willie,

    Thanks for adding your voice of victory to and encouraging all of us Gods children daily. May the grace of our lord continue to be with your spirit and enfire you to do more mighty thinks in His kingdom in Jesus name. I am a regular listener here in the DMV, often alternating between you and WVA on my way home. Kudus to you and your team for a job well done daily.

    Today, I felt compelled to write you concerning what from my angle seemed to be an issue of insensitivity. As the top 3 segment came on and Ms. Lee was talking about the now viral NAMBIA gaffe of 45, I was taken aback that none of you could pronounce the name of the country. I personally believe took this as being rude or at the very best unprofessional. Even, the PRODUCER didn’t know. How is that possible, did he not do the research to prepare you and the crew before the show?

    You see it is seemingly insignificant things like this, that the enemy continue to use in perpetuating the myth of Africa as a dangerous and backward continent. There is a lot of racism from my brothers on this side of the world against those from Africa and most of it is because of ignorance. Today was one of those days when you could have used your medium to at the very least teach people the correct name of the country NAMIBIA. Listen to the segment again, the country was treated like a bump on the editorial log of today. Please lets be more sensitive.

    Not a sermon, Just a thought. Simply keeping it 100!

    Remain Blessed.
