AndreYoung 5pts I do not know about the Media Industrial Complex in other communities, however, they could not be that much apart; the bottom line is, that they/newspapers set the economic, social, legal and political paradigm for each community. Whatever the newspaper's suasion is normally the way and/or manner things will usually go. Does that mean, that newspapers are the pulse of the general community, or voice of the stockholders and/or owners? What chagrins me is; we do not have nearly enough of our own media, to offset the proverbial status quo. It is my hope, that in the farseeable future; we/Blacks will seek out and align with other National and International media, to get our views out. I am grateful for THIS particular forum, otherwise; I suppose, there would be nothing, nor would I likely know anything about the travesty of the young Black Brother's tragic demise.
