Is Media To Blame For Kids’ Bad Behavior? – Know Thyself Community Wednesday

TOPIC: Is Mass Media and Entertainment Solely To Blame for Negative Behavior—WHERE’S THE PARENTS?

Experiencing The Plight Of My Community First Hand

 

Every other Thursday I go to the barber to get a haircut and this Thursday was no different from any other Thursday except, I witnessed something that shook me so much that I was forced to write about it on the website.

When I arrived at the barber shop I was approached to purchase something from a nice lady in the community that sales baked items. I told her that I need to go back outside to my truck to get a couple of dollars that I keep in the sun visor and would be right back. As I opened the door of my vehicle I hear pop, pop, pop, pop, pop and see a young man standing at the corner about two blocks away shooting a gun. He then takes off running across the street while immediately being chased by the police who roll up on him almost as soon as he finishes shooting the gun. I stood there for a few minutes just to see what was going on as police flooded the area…now remember this is about 2:30 in the afternoon, broad daylight and about 90 degree weather.

Is It Time For Men And Women in Our Community To Call A Truce? Know Thyself Community Wednesday

Today's Topic:

Is It Time For Men And Women in Our Community To Call A Truce?

OVERVIEW:

From an essay written by Anthony Assadullah Samad “50 Solutions to the Black Dilemma"

Saving The Ojibwe Language Through Hip Hop-Know Thyself [VIDEO]

Now here is a story about a group of indigenous people in Minnesota that are trying to save their native language “Ojibwe”. Some of the young members of the community are putting their rap skills to good use by incorporating their native tongue in song. I think that this is a great example of what it means to “Know Thyself” because it speaks to the roots and origins of who this group of people is in relation to their spiritual existence on this planet. They are trying to preserve their inner communication to hold their people together so that the generations to come will never forget who and what they are and always have that native language in which to pass on infinitely.
