SORT BY Relevancy
White folk are in a panic. There are reports of bands of Black children running around punching people in the head. Their solution? Get a gun and shoot them. Kill them dead. Or have the police do it.
This week the MadMen talk about "the knockout game" (what used to be called "wildin'"). Is this just your normal random assault that happens in everyday society or is it media hype to propel the continued abuse against Black children who look like they might punch somebody in the back of the head?
Is calling for the death of the children who participate fair? Or is it justified self defense?

My mouth hangs opens as I write this program description after watching the news and clips are people being punched in the head by black teens and knocked out. It is a "game" that is spreading worldwide. It some cases in New York the victims have been exclusively Jewish.
There is no denying that African American culture is pop world culture. All the influences, from the music, dance, fashion, and slang eventually, end up in the mainstream worldwide. For decades the "best" of the culture has defined American culture and ultimately the world's pop culture. But unfortunately the "worse" of what is viewed to be of that "culture" is also spreading... From sagging pants, and now the "knockout game"? Like sagging, where people of all ethnic groups, ages, and sexes are have adapted this unusual way of wearing pants, are same going to begin punching heads worldwide? Culture is active. It is the expression of a people. However, should the actions of a few represent a culture? I think not. But the problem is that these actions become replicated and copied until it is viewed as part of the culture. It is time for people, particularly from African American culture, to speak out and put a stop to what can eventually end up defining that culture.

I have only two more nights before I leave BTR (unless I can achieve a agreement with them ) Tonight's 4 hr topic is race realtions. I believe racism can not be fought with racism. Let us learn from one another. No system that I know of is perfect for people are falliable. Do you have a position on race ? Call in and be able to support your position if need be. All calls are taken 646 716 7259 . I will mute if you overtalk others . I will do my best to see that you are at least heard. Whether people agree with you is a different matter .
I like Langston's Hughs poem " A Dream Deferred "
What happens to a dream deferred?
Does it dry up
like a raisin in the sun?
Or fester like a sore--
And then run?
Does it stink like rotten meat?
Or crust and sugar over--
like a syrupy sweet?
Maybe it just sags
like a heavy load.
Or does it explode?
From Montage of a dream deferred .
You are encourage to read passages of your own or others that are related to tonight's topic of race relations for educational purposes only.
