This Friday-November 2nd, 2007, is National Blackout Day Throughout America

  Attorney Warren Ballentine "The People's Attorney" and Radio host of his show "Truth Fighters" is calling for all African-Americans to participate in a National Blackout throughout America this Friday, November 2nd.  

Mr. Ballentine believes this blackout is necessary for African Americans, and is long overdue, especially with all the present injustices that are being allowed and accepted in America currently.  From the situation with Mychal Bell and the Jena 6,  Genarlow Wilson (WAS sentenced to 10 years in jail for consensual oral sex with a 15 year old, he was 17 at the time), Megan Williams (tortured, raped), and all of the nooses being hung all over America lately.  He also believes federal legislation regarding hate crimes must be enacted, and as long as they are not; African Americans need to band together to show their "Economic Power" by refusing to spend any money from fast food restaurants to gas or on anything - this Friday.

According to Mr. Ballentine, African Americans spend an estimated 715 billion dollars a year, and if African Americans were to stop spending for one day, it will be 2 billion dollars that will not be in the system (2 billion dollars a day, lining the pockets of companies that have shown no interest in African American interests.)  Therefore, he asks every African American to participate in this blackout, he stated "We ARE living in the new civil rights movement. We cannot allow the march in Jena to be only an event. It MUST be a movement."   Mr. Ballentine however ask that you don't make a mad dash to the stores days prior or the days following, because if the stores have a major increase in sales right before or right after the Blackout, then the impact that is needed will NOT be created.  

There are many situations all over the nation that scream of injustice and unfair treatment of African American people in this country, and which is why this blackout was called.  Some of the incidents which occurred within these past two years are listed below:

Many people marched in Jena, La on Sept. 20 in support of the Jena 6 - Mychal Bell and 5 other young men unjustly charged with attempted murder for a school yard fight.

A woman in West Virginia (Megan Williams) who was raped and tortured for days with barely any national coverage. They called her the N word, however, it is still had not confirmed, nor is it be treating as a hate crime. 

Remember the young groom in NYC who was murdered by the NYPD on the eve of his wedding. 

There is the teenage girl in Texas who was sentenced to jail time for an altercation with a school official. 

How about the teenage girl who was sprayed with mace for missing curfew. You can see her in the video restrained by a police officer twice her size. She was in handcuffs when she was sprayed. 

There is a California girl who had her arm broken by a school security official when she refused to pick up a piece of cake from the floor. It was filmed by a school mate and is all over You Tube. 

A young man in Georgia who was sentenced to 10 years in prison for having consensual sex with a young girl. He was 17, she was 15.  (Update Thankfully, this young man Genarlow Wilson was released this past Friday, October 26th after serving 3 years of this unjust sentence).

You must have heard about the young brother in Florida who died in the custody of the state when he was admitted to their boot camp. They said he had diabetes but they couldn't explain his battered body. All of these stories happened within the last year or two.

Mr. Ballentine ask that you show a sign of solidarity, and he further states "This is not about color. This is about class. The middle class and poor people in this country are not treated as the Declaration of Independence says we should be treated. It states that "all men are created equal". Clearly the
governing class of the United States disagrees with their document."

 

   On a personal note, I must say we are hearing a lot of talk about this blackout, and in many instances very negative talk.  However, in my opinion what harm would this blackout do, it could only do some good, and WILL WORK if everyone participates.  I say to those who are talking and are questioning, and even being negative about this blackout, just be quiet for a minute and do it...just do it.  If we all join together as one, as a strong community and participate, it will certainly work.  The goal for crippling the economy for one 24 hour period will be accomplished, and most importantly it will make a difference and will bring awareness to all of these situations!!!  JOIN TOGETHER COLLECTIVELY (as you did in Jena on September 20th), AND PARTICIPATE on November 2nd!!!  SURLY THERE WILL BE POSITIVE RESULTS!!!

"In the abundance of water, the fool is thirsty".  "Many tears that are in the heart never reach the eye".  Which would you prefer, money, power and respect or knowledge, wisdom and understanding?"

You know, lately there are so many important issues surfacing that constantly plagues our hearts and minds.  Some of which are manifesting themselves, and we find that we are unable to resolve them because they are so deeply rooted.   However, we must look deep within for the solution, and work together as one to achieve it.  Look at our history and from whence we came, study it, and most importantly share it with our children, so they can learn and become conscious of the struggles their forefathers and foremothers have endured throughout time.  I believe this will begin to give us some answers and some solutions to many of these issues and problems we are facing today.  

Let me briefly update you on one important issue that arose earlier this year, and that has been brewing  for some time now.  The issue of negative and degrading lyrics in hip hop music, and most importantly the degrading of women in hip hop music. Many of you may know that Congress has had hearings on this issue, where rap artists and entertainment executives were faced with fending off criticisms that they exploit violence and sexism for profit.  These hearings were spearheaded by Subcommittee Chairman Bobby L. Rush (D-IL) to primarily examine and target stereotypes and degradation of women (black women in particular) in the media, and to look at not only the problem caused by misogynistic content in some hip hop music but also some of the pain that emanates from this degradation.  Some of the people who were testifying were music label executives such as E. Bronfman, Jr.-Chairman of Warner Music Group and D. Morris, Chairman of Universal Music Group, along with rappers Lavelle Crump "David Banner" and Percy Miller "Master P", as well as author Michael Eric Dyson.

As I learned more about the details of these hearings, it all seemed very interesting.  Many important questions were asked by the lawmakers such as "where did society fail you that you would choose to write such filth?"; one Senator targeted Viacom-owned BET and stated "the cable net appealed to "the lowest common denominator" via "cheap, tawdry" videos and other "questionable programming"; music executives were asked about their companies' role in the production of explicit rap and whether marketers were doing enough to shield young listeners from graphic content.  A question on a ban of certain derogatory words were also brought up, of which a music executive stated "we don't think that banning expression is an appropriate approach".  David Banner did tell the lawmakers that he feels "rap music had been unfairly singled out as a scapegoat for deeper social problems."  He further stated "Gang violence was here before rap music", "I can admit that there are some problems in hip-hop but it is only a reflection of what is taking place in our society.  Hip-Hop is sick because America is Sick"  He concluded by describing his poverty-stricken childhood filled with hopelessness, racism and violence, and closed out by stating "this is horror music...there's nothing in my music that you don't see in my community".  Master P on the other hand urged rap artists to put "positive" images and words into music and apologized to all women, he stated he was honestly wrong.  (Master P has recently devoted himself to producing cleaner music with positive messages.  See article by Black Talent News below on Master P taking a stand).

I'm honestly not sure if these congressional hearings will do anything to help resolve this issue.  While I believe in Freedom of Speech, I strongly feel that the music has become very derogatory, and indeed the negative images have created a very disrespectful and violent generation.  Of course I don't believe the music should be banned, but I do believe (as Todd stated in an earlier commentary) that if the radio stations and record companies decided not to promote these types of negative images, then the artists would be forced to find more positive things to sing about.  Actually, I implore the artists to stop and just look around for a minute, focus on the young ones, and look at how your music affects them.  It should be clear for you to see how they pattern themselves as you, how they dress, walk, talk like you, and how they try to live by your lyrics.  Be positive role models, and most importantly teach them how to respect; to respect themselves, each other, their families as well as their mothers, sisters, and all the women in their life through your music.

  Master P Takes A Stand For Hip-Hop; Father-Son Album Hip Hop History

Rapper-mogul Master P and son Romeo have pledged to clean up the notorious image and explicit lyrics often associated with hip-hop music through the formation of their new label. Take A Stand Records. The label will feature responsible artists, clean lyrics and a positive portrayal of the urban community. Hip Hop History, the first release under the new label, is a collaborative father and son album from Master P and Romeo.  The album contains clean lyrics. Hip Hop History was released on Sept. 4.

During a family car trip this past spring, Miller found himself turning down the explicit-lyric laden music that was playing on the stereo as not to expose his youngest children to the harsh words.  He thought to himself, 'there's something wrong if I have to turn my music down while I'm riding in the car with my kids.'  He recalled the lives of family and friends lost to violence, how he had glorified illicit activity on his rise to the top, and his own recent troubles with the law.  That night, Miller took a long hard look at himself, his dodgy past, and where he was going, and decided to make some major changes for the better.  The idea for Take a Stand Records was born.

Take A Stand Records will represent artists that have pledged to be role models to both the music industry and music lovers of all walks of life through 100% clean lyrics and positive moral values. Master P made the announcement public and gave further justification for the label via an open letter available on the web site, http://www.takeastandrecords.com/letter.html.

In the letter, Master P states, "personally, I have profited millions of dollars through explicit rap lyrics. I can honestly say that I was once part of the problem and now it's time to be part of the solution. I am ready to take a stand by cleaning up my music and follow my son's footsteps and make a clean rap album. [... I am not expecting the entire industry to change overnight but this is one positive step towards the growth of hip-hop."
 
Rather than perpetuate the conventional hip-hop stereotypes of violence, sex and wealth, music from Take A Stand Records artists will address social issues and positivity. Master P says, "there's too much negativity out there -- enough with the stereotypes. Hip-hop is a movement, and it is time for it to move forward."
 
Take A Stand Records seeks to be a hip-hop label with a conscience. Proceeds from record sales will be made available to underprivileged youth in the form of scholarships. In addition, Take A Stand Records will seek partnerships with organizations such as the NAACP and retailers such as Target and Wal-Mart that are in direct contact with communities.
 
A nationwide talent search for artists that share in the values of the new label is currently underway. Interested hip-hop artists are encouraged to become contestants on the new unscripted television show "America's Next Hip-Hop Stars" (http://www.americasnexthiphopstars.com).

 

 

  Don't forget about the "Enough is Enough Campaign" rallies/protests taking place in Washington DC and New York this weekend.  If you indeed have had enough with the negative images that are being shown on BET, then let you voice be heard by joining this campaign.  The “Enough is Enough” Campaign is against corporate sponsorship of visual images and lyrical messages that degrade women glorify violence and negatively portray blacks and Latino men as pimps, gangsters and thugs are now taking place in both Washington DC and  New York.
