    Hi Afroerotik
    You really hit this right on the head, it got to be televised, and you pin point the station where it much happen, I feel the irony in your flow and how it hurts to bring up where some of our people attention will be focus on if it was to be televised.
    I can really feel you speak this live my brotha
    Much love poet

    Peace and Love
