Kony 2012: Marginalizing Black Voices
Check the video link out:
Hey, did you hear that a kid in the US shot a whole bunch of his schoolmates for absolutely no reason whatsoever - again? Columbine was supposed to end school violence, but hey, no one made bracelets or posted a 30 minute YouTube video (sorry Michael Moore). Or yesterday was International Women's Day? Or the trial of the kidnapping and murder of 8 year old Tori Stafford is going on right now?
I thought social media was supposed to get us more connected to what's going on around us, but it seems like the medium just overpowers the message and exacerbates old prejudices and ignorance. Where's good old Marshall McLuhan when you need him?
Let's #commonsense, folks.
