Here is a great column on mainstream journalism and hip-hop culture (read: Black youth) by Amy Alexander. It once again relays the importance of “watchdogs” and the need for diversity in journalism, which includes editorials. Freedom of speech was endowed by this country’s “founding fathers” but equality was denied by these same men. Only differences in treatment are much more subtle than they have been in the past.
I’m working on finishing up the semester, so my posts will be real spotty from this time till January. Despite this, like Bartles and James, back in the 80s, “We thank you for your support.”
