Tink and Timbaland couldn’t have dropped Tell The Children at a more appropriate time. With the Mike Brown verdict in last night, people are fed up and in need of direction. The question is do we keep up with our frustration and use it for change or get distracted by the next celebrity scandal or episode of Love and Hip Hop.
The difference between now and the Civil Right era is that we’re so easily distracted and afraid of the system that nothing ever gets done. Remember the Trayvon Martin case that got everybody riled up but was soon forgotten. Back in the day we were boycotting bus lines and doing sit ins, not just ranting on social media. Imagine what change could occur if we get our focus back and our priorities straight? Just a thought.
