Negative, Violent Music has to go!

Every Penny Counts

The publisher of African American Opinion has taken a stand against demeaning and violent music. He says he is taking a stand against gangster and other forms of negative rap music. Inspired by a recent post by fellow AfroSphere Blogger, Gem at What About Our Daughters and her report on the efforts of faith based leader, Dr. Michael Pfleger in Chicago.

The publisher of African American Opinion decided to reach out to the larger community to say enough is enough. He plans to place 5 strategic billboards like the ones in Chicago into 5 urban areas of America, including Philadelphia, Washington, DC, Detroit, Baltimore , and Los Angeles.

His blog has now partnered with ChipIn.com to raise funds to place the billboards in those cities. All funds raised will go directly to the advertising effort. He is urging other bloggers to place one of the widgets on there website or blog (hat tip Angry Independent) to assist in the effort. The African American Opinion blog publisher says, "If all goes as expected, we plan to make it a national effort to have billboards in every urban area throughout America urging our youth to boycott rappers who degrade our young girls and women, excite violence and disgrace our communities."It's time to "Do the WRITE thing."

Rev. Micheal Pfleger a respected Chicago faith leader has stepped to the plate, African American bloggers should take a look at what he is doing. To obtain a widget to place on your blog or website, just go to the ChipIn.com widget on African American Opinion blog and click copy. Then copy and paste the information onto your sidebar.
