He tackles a variety of issues with passion, knowledge and spirituality. Whether it’s commentaries on sports, social justice, business or the media, Roland S. Martin refuses to be a pigeonholed as a Conservative or a Liberal, Democrat or a Republican. As he puts it, he is simply a “Black man in America.”
