This is really bad.
I'm not surprised things are dying down. Ain't but so many times someone can get gassed and walk around in a damn circle. The walking (no standing) was done to intentionally tire them out.
I know people say they don't want celebrity involvement, but I think people are really underestimating the influence rap/hip hop has on the black youth. This is why I am disgusted by the silence from black celebs. 90% of your songs are about your life on the "street" or about the money you make, yet you can't support the same people...YOUR "people" that have kept you relevant? Even Obama knew hip hop influenced black youth. Remember when rappers started encouraging people to vote? It's not a coincidence that voter turn out was higher in 2012 than it is now in that city. These underrepresented and disenfranchised blacks clearly DO SUPPORT one another or those black faces that say they are 'for them'. It is elitist black people that don't reciprocate.
Same with radio stations. When Jena 6 happened, we received a lot of information, organization, etc from radio stations, even to my knowledge, BET started covering the events going on. It made a HUGE difference. More people knew what was going on, the people in that city had a voice that wasn't filtered by CNN.
