Media Questions Of The Week



1. Why are people “outraged” about Eric Benet’s song “Redbone Girl” but have never listened to his song “Chocolate Legs?”

2. Why are people (mostly Black) going on various websites to make colonized comments about the looks of 7-month old Blue Ivy?


3. Why are people taking sides in the Jackson family conflict when no one really knows the whole story? And could the public’s perception of Michael Jackson’s children being “victims” have anything to do with the fact they are white in a Black family?

4. Did Drake never hear of Lauryn Hill before he made the statement that he is the first person to successfully sing and rap?

Revision: The Force M.D.’s were actually the first group to sucessfully sing and rap. See “Itchin’ For A Scratch.”
