    Peace and Blessings Family,

    I think i'm experiencing a generational gap here. I know the young people in the community, will set me straight.

    Many thoughts come to my mind, when viewing this video. I see the young Brothers in it, and the obvious skill they have, the strength of their young bodies ... so able to do most anything a man can do. Yet, there is this overwhelming sorrow, that they are probably unemployed, and not able to experience their fullest potential.

    The dancing is great ... yet i'm saddened.

    You tell me, what do you think?


    Baltimore Rocking




    Sister Purple ... this video contains some young Brothers dancing to music on the streets of Baltimore.

    :heart:

    This is the type of stuff that needs to replace the current TV Commerce-shows, as well as be featured on the Front Page of many Black-owned websites. All the more reason to establish our very own Communications Network. Young Black folk see this type of stuff all over the Universe, and they become encouraged. It is an interesting form of using Talent to Communicate.

    LOL. Isnt there enough dancing on tv allready. What will more do but get more to dance. There are alot of worse things of course. But I can think of alot of better things too. Come on folks. We never were in the lack of music and dancing. More doesnt need to be on tv and the media when you can do it anywhere you want.
