I don't know if it's just me but I have noticed an absence of the African/Black celebrities voice or presence relating to the two despicable recent murders of AA men by law enforcement..Where are the Chris Rocks, Jada Pinkett & Will Smith as well as many others. Where are the Ice Cubes, Ice Teas, Dr. Dre 's Snoop Dogs and so many others. Is straight outta Compton straight outta sight? Where are the AA athletes, entertainers and other wealthy and influential AA people who are in a position to use their success as a platform to speak out and help to unify and galvanize folks who stand against police brutality and injustice?
Have we become that disconnected from each other that the plight of the average African/Black american today has become a non interest of those who have made it? Have they forgotten that their success today is because of the activists of years past who had made their voices heard and used their success as a platform to address the issues that plagued us then and to a large extent, still do now...
I don't know, maybe it's just me... Correct me if I'm wrong....

Snoop Dogg, The Game peacefully gather with demonstrators outside LAPD headquarters

http://abc7.com/news/demonstrators-gather-outside-lapd-during-cadet-graduation-ceremony/1419008/

Officers wearing black arm bands in honor of the fallen police officers.


Not sure of what I think about Snoop's message about matching hate with love. How is that working for us so far? And I'm not trying to be facetious, just stating that this is always what Black people are told to do as though it's expected for us to tell a murderer they are forgiven for taking the life of our loved ones. I don't know, maybe my spirit operates on a baser level because that seems unhealthy to me.

I think they are sort of bound by the rules of the game they are playing.

If they want to keep living the life that comes with it.

Most things we do in life today and where we are boils down to choice. People choose to speak out or people choose to be silent.. If people choose to be silent and aren't willing to risk anything then they sure as heck can't expect anything. By choosing to be silent they place themselves at the mercy of others and will always be a slave to the system.. Liberation is not free...No risk, No reward. I don't believe that they are bound by the rules as much as they choose to be bound by them..

I am looking for participants in a study to share their experiences as former African American males served as ED/EBD/BD in the southeast. Participants ages 18-35 will be interviewed and given the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and impressions of their school years. If interested or for more information please contact me directly. Thanks, Cheryl

Thank you for the welcome. I have a question. I am a doctorate student in need of participants for my study. Is it allowable to post a request for study participants. If so, this is the post that would be uploaded:
