I think he gives speeches to various organizations, NAACP included. I know nothing of his politics, rumors only that he will challenge Vitter. I will withhold judgment until he announces a political run. If he is a conservative African American, I don't see the problem, someone in LA should convince him to run against Landrieu.
Landrieu won’t be up for re-election until 2012. He should move to New Orleans and run for Mayor. But even if he won, he would never survive in the urban ‘rain forest’ that is NOLA politics.
