    Hello Family,

    After witnessing NBC, a major media network in this country, cut Brother Kanye West off, when speaking his mind ... makes me wonder ... where can we speak freely?

    I'm sure if Brother Kanye had been saying the opposite, no matter that it was not scripted, he would have been allowed to continue.

    Where do Black people go, to be heard?

    Where can we say what we want, to a national prime time audience?

    :heart:

    The only place that we have as black folks are internet radio stations and discussion forums or websites. All "black" mass media is checked by white people before they actually air anything. That's why the true feelings amongst black folks never gets out. Kanye West will not be speaking on anything anytime soon I bet. White people will be too afraid of him having another outburst.

    I don't see the point of waiting for the mainstream to tell out story. But we could have a nationally distributed newsletter--make it locally syndicated so each community has a leader responsible for its content, production and distribution--pass it out on the street corners while speakers educate passers by like the Muslims did with Final Call. Elder James will be the art editor and I will be the website edition editor and Destee will be the editor in chief and anAfrican will be the Column Right editor with Sek as the Column Left editor and Samurai as the copy editor making sure every syllable is absolutely correct. Some possible names

    Buffalo Soldier Weekly
    EOTO (Each One Teach One)
    The Heard Word
    N Double A Double A (National Association for the Acrivation of African Americans)

    That's why we'll have Sam to make sure everything is correct. You just do your thing and he'll demolish any dangling participles.
