The Anti-Gangsta Rap
Yesterday, I was listening to my favorite talk station and favorite show, The Dave Glover Show on 97.1 FM out of St. Louis. While I always enjoy the Glover Show, I was most impressed with the commercials. Not your typical adverts for cars and jewelry and other holiday goodies, but the public service announcements. During a commercial break, I heard three PSAs, right in a row. One for breast cancer awareness, one for stopping on-line predators and one for elimination of obesity. Promotion of good things like non-for-profits and government services always make me think of the antidote for gangsta rap-something positive, meaningful and beneficial to all Americans.
