Two questions: What does any of what Tyrese said have to do with Oprah and Obama–whom I think both do more for humanity than we might know–and what are YOU doing, Tyrese? You don’t have to be from Chicago to contribute. What are you doing about the situation in the city in which YOU live. It’s easy to blow into town to promote a book, speak a few noble morsels and be gone. I know a way
you can help–how about less songs the objectify young woman? How about telling some of your fellow entertainers to bring it down on the booty music and all the songs about “Da Club” that these kids embrace as the truth? How about less pointing of the finger and more doing on YOUR part? Black folk still in search of someone to LEAD them. Look in the mirror and do for SELF. We LIVE in these communities; we can’t do something about WHERE WE LIVE?
