City Paper is not for tourists
LOOSE LIPS JUST MISSED the boat on the Million Man March (10/20). This was an event that was larger than Farrakhan. Were you there? The media did not believe that we could do it. Brothers were coming in droves with an attitude that we can and will take care of our own community. It was an emotional and spiritual gathering that only brought about positive attitudes toward each other. Why deny us this great day? Do you have a problem with it?
It is unbelievable that you could only muster a few positive lines of text. Is that the only way the media can sell papers—by commenting on the negative? Today’s society and the press should be ashamed of themselves. You still have time to change, for in the ‘hood we do forgive. Maybe that is the problem. We have been forgiving for over 400 years.
