"Being A Black Man" Series - Washington Post
Special recognition to the Washington Post and NPR News & Notes for putting out the great works of FBI Assistant Director, Mike Mason, the highest ranking African American in the agency.
I was happy to hear Mr. Mason's outlook on his responsibility within the FBI as well as putting the organization's role into the proper perspective TODAY. The FBI today is not "J. Edgar Hoover" and the Martin Luther King Jr. COINTELPRO operations. They serve a vital law enforcement function in our community and have developed thousands of African-American agents over the years into valuable contributors to the law and order of our nation.
This series is a good counterbalance to the negative and subversive tales that we too often hear done by community members who are far less clear in their value to our community and this country.
