About four years ago, when I realized that WBAI was slowly but surely being morphed into a third-class black station by opportunistic racists, I was accused of overreacting and, indeed, being anti black, but the evidence was so clear to me that I had to wonder why more people couldn't see it.
As it turned out, people were seeing the change, or—to be precise—hearing it. They were also sending a powerful message by simply tuning out. Here's what I had to say about the fade to black On February 18, 2013—almost 3 years ago. I needn't point out that the transformation has gone considerably farther since then, and the listenership is the lowest it has ever been.
