    It's not enough that the media portrays us as drug addicts, felons and pimps. Now, they're going after our children. I see it as they want the general public to think that black children who grow up in these types of conditions will continue the cycle.
    But I do agree when they said this child should have never been interviewed in the first place, being a witness to a crime. Wonder if that was on purpose as well.

    Nothing will change until we have our own media and National Press.
    Huffington sold her national web press to some worse then Murdoch goon squads, so expect all kinds of what not as the economy goes down the sewer,

    but that only mans that We As A People should be Purchasing Much Media, on Pennies on the Dollar

    Anything to get a story out. And if it puts us in a bad light; icing on their cake, pats on their back and toasts all around. But if that had been a white child, there would have been lawsuits filed before the day was over, someone would have lost their job and on air live public apologies would have followed.

    and the beat goes on.

    Now ???? Ha!... Try Always kamau... Always.
    School system, welfare system, justice system, law enforcement,
    State sanctioned drug trade, state sanctioned liquor trade, state sanctioned gun trade,
    State controlled media, the image assault on television, in music and movies..
    All of that is directed straight at our children.. All of it.

    I keep saying that the black race equates to money for the media. This is proof of what I said about how they only want to show and portray the bad side of us.

    I saw the video and it is an outrage and I hope his parents persue a lawsuit, which is well within their right. This illumes how imperative it is to safeguard our children. IMO, a four year old should have his Mama or another adult with him..not to lessen the media's responsibility, but raising consciousness that since we can't expect outside influences to protect our children, we must do it at all costs. Educate our young and go back to the mindset that we have more power in numbers. Rather than looking at our lives as me being responsible for my child and you for yours, we need to go back to it takes a village mentality.
