An honest dialogue about love, life, and everything in-between...

Thursday, August 16, 2007


After having conversations with one of my good friends, Ms. Wonder Woman, I am often finding myself discussing various social issues, the overwhelming presence of stupidity, and common sense and the lack there of. In the midst of this conversation I wandered onto YouTube. There are some people out there that are being creative in a manner that I feel can really connect with people and, if given the right context and outlet, can shine a light on many of the issues facing Black people. I decided to share my favorites I've seen in the last few weeks. However being that the videos I've chosen to display below speak to certain social and racial issues, some people have been offended by it. Posting them here is not meant to offend anyone. But in order for real change to happen people really have to stop being so damn sensitive and be honest about the problems that are still playing out daily.

With that said, bring on the videos. They are not heavy, which is why I feel they are a great example of how you can be creative and affect change with out depressing the people. It's also important to note that none of these videos point fingers. Instead they just bring awareness to the issues they've decided to show. Watch closely and pay attention to the sounds and the visuals. Some correlate in a very striking way.
