“I wonder what the world can do,” the Youth Organizing to Save Our Streets’ rapper admits in the video above. “I have no idea. I have no clue.” And that, friends, is the problem. While gun control advocates sell the idea that civilian disarmament is the answer, no, it isn’t. So what is? Stop shooting, start living? That’s the dictionary definition of feel-good fatalism. Far be it for me, an OFWG, to tell urban youth how to stem the tide of gangland shootings (which account for the “gun violence” they decry). But gun control ain’t it. Someone ought to talk to these citizens about . . .
viable educational, political, spiritual, economic and law enforcement solutions. If they want to see a music video that lays it out for reelz, I recommend Stevie Wonder’s You Haven’t Done Nothin’. “We want the truth and nothing else,” Mr. Wonder opines. Copy that.
