    While I understand Brother Brown’s emphasis on our lost youth, I am somewhat puzzled on rushing to crime scenes. This could be a morbid obsession of his, but it truly solves nothing unless serving as a grim reaper to the media.is his deal. I would suggest a different tactic, but that is just me.

      Brother Salim, The young activists like to shine in front of the tv cameras. The key is converting that tv camera time into a tangible asset. Getting on the tv news dont pay for your light bill. Jedidiah needs to parlay his camera tv facetime into dollars and sense. I hope he will realize that before he is on a LINK Card. Hotep!
