SPONSORED BY CARL TONE JONES--Concluding our series tonight. WHEN HAVE WE HAD ENOUGH? HOW MANY SLIDESHOWS OF TRAGEDY AND DESTRUCTION NEED TO BE PLAYED OF LOST TEENS, MURDERED YOUTH, RACISM AND SEXUAL DEVIANCY IMAGES BEFORE WE GET SICK AND TIRED OF BEING SICK AND TIRED? We talked about the effects that the poisonous attraction to bad boys/girls has on our community...but since domestic violence statistics, single-parent homes, and twisted relationships aren't enough to convince you...take heed of these names: Brittany Smith, Chanequa Campbell, Afrika Owes and Tyesha Sargeant..four beautiful Afican American young women who attended prestigious gifted schools with Harvrd scholarships. Three of them lost their futures, two lost their freedom, and one lost her life because of their attraction to thug men and their lifestyles. When will we be outraged enough to self-accoutn and make a difference? Tonight both men and women are on the hot seat and directed to communicate all that we contribute to the problemsso that we can take a speed-trip in the direction of healing. Join in at 10:30 PM EST by calling 347-327-9967.
