  1. The actions of the body guards is despicable, and the looks of the rapper's picture is not conducive to the African American male.

    The rapper's looks stigmatize's what most races see as a "hoodlum," or "thug."

    Until we can instill in our youths the need for an education with a religious upbringing, they will look to drugs, gangs, and having babies, our youth's are going to be in the criminal system whether we like it or not.

  2. I am sorry that happened to those young men. But at the same time, it is not such a great idea hagging in night clubs. First of all, your'e in a place where there is drinking and drugging going on. People are already high and drunk and the music is boasting their heads. You have to know that is a recipe for disaster. The holy spirit is not present in such a place. Just demons. Anything can happen.
