This, even though I went after your first post
I brought this up at work yesterday (told the story already but fu*k it) and the girl I told it do was like "Oh, she's black? Same sh*t different day". Today at work she finds out D. Rose is paying for the funeral and now she's all in! This is what I am talking about.
I'm in Cleveland. Our big story right now is a teacher strike going on in the outskirts. I have yet to hear about this on the news, on one of the radio shows I listen to (its sports talk but these dudes cover everything. Broke the Pope stepping down first in Cleveland) and even Tom Joyner and Michael Baisden. I have yet to hear anything from any of those cats. Even more shocking with Tom Joyner having happy go luck house n*gga Sharpton on his show every week, though I shouldn't be surprised.
actually take that back. I went to make sure I spelled Michael's last name right and found out he is from Chicago. The hell!!!??? You should be blowing this up right now
Yeh for the past year i been spazzing out about Chicago in regards to the crime & corruption pointing out the fact that a elementary school shooting in a upper class community in Connecticut became the face of the gun control when in fact during that same time period there were 30 to 40 shootings in Chicago in 48 hr periods. Over 475 Homicides in Chicago when the Sandy Hook Shooting Happened. People then, even living in Chicago criticized me of my criticism saying in this case the elementary school kids don't compare to the violence in Chicago when in fact out of the over 500 homicides in 2012 in Chicago many of them was indeed kids.
Its sad that in 2013 we have channels like BET, TV One, & OWN and still as of now none of those channels provide a Black Urban News show in regards to reporting the daily news of whats going on in black communities across the country. All we have for now is news segments on urban radio morning shows, urban websites and the black church.
So if you don't follow any of those mediums then you probably wouldn't have a clue whats going on in urban communities and relying on major news outlets when half the time they are only gonna give you half the story if they even report it at all.
Aight back to sports.
