A CALL TO CONSCIOUSNESS

"Rarely do we find men who willingly engage in hard, solid thinking. There is an almost universal quest for easy answers and half-baked solutions. Nothing pains some people more than having to think."

--Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr.

T.I : Intelligent, Sexist or Stupid?

T.I.: Intelligent, Sexist or Stupid

It seems that pushing the line is the only way to get your point across these days. Time and time again we hear it and see it from government to music. Rapper T.I. and his clothing line is this week’s viral defendant after placing a billboard in downtown Newark, New Jersey. The AKOO clothing line campaign found it necessary to showcase their jeans with a zipper open and a young Black female inches away…

What’s the message? Do T.I.’s AKOO jeans increase your masculinity or simply the jeans that make women fall to their knees?

In a world of explicit content where does it end?
