Today during one of the most historic races in a America, two explosions rocked the Boston Marathon, in Boston, MA. causing more than 144 injuries and leaving 3 dead including spectators and racers. Preliminary witness reports hearing two separate explosions near the finish line of the marathon about 15 seconds apart form each other as many of the racers were preparing to finish the race. Emergency responders are on the seen attending to all who were injured. Right now FBI investigators and law enforcement officials are investigating to determine the cause of the explosions and they have not yet released a statement about the definite cause of the incident, and they have neither confirmed nor denied whether this was a planned bombing or unfortunate explosion due to some type of unforeseen infrastructure failure. Currently counter terrorism units are seen working with local and federal officials to help determine the cause of the incident as well. Vice President Joe Biden has released a statement stating ” That his office has just been made aware of the incidents and that the thoughts and prayers of himself and his office are with all of those effected and they are waiting on information about the cause of the explosions as well. My thoughts and prayers are with not only the city of Boston but also to the families of all of those who are effected. This is truly a confusing and perplexing turn of events and I am cannot wrap my mind round what could potentially be the motivation behind this incident and I will be keeping a close eye on events and actions not only surrounding this incident but events to come.
I came across an interview that Former BET executive Paul Porter where he discusses today’s mainstream commercial hardcore rap music has detrimentally effected the minds & behaviors of today’s youth. During this two part interview Porter gives in depth insight from a perspective of someone who has worked on the highest level of broadcasting & seen the transition of what is perpetuated in music, movies, television, & other entertainment outlets & how they are truly influencing the minds of our youth today. Paul also discusses the HIGHLY controversial Rick Ross rape infused lyric from his feature on Rocko’s U.O.E.N.O. Below are the links to parts 1 and 2 of the interview and I highly recommend that everyone take a listen to Paul’s amazing insight.
