Are you concerned about the way American corporations are profiting off of these messages? GET ON THE BUS!
Are you angry about the way in which standards of decency in media and entertainment are not applied to African-Americans in the same way they are for other groups? GET ON THE BUS!
The Lord has led Rev. Coates to declare that "Enough Is Enough."
Every Saturday after that, Rev. Coates will be leading protests at local media outlets and corporations that sponsor these messages that are destroying the minds of our people and are impacting how the world views women and people of color. If you are equally concerned, plan to attend these marches. Share it with your friends and family. Rev. Coates will announce the protest locations in the future. If you have any thoughts or comments about this movement, share you thoughts about the campaign by sending an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The purpose of this campaign is to protest the commercialization and marketing of negative and derogatory images of black men and women in the entertainment industry. This movement recognizes the power of media and entertainment corporations to shape American attitudes, opinions, behaviors, and even policies by and about people of color. The campaign contends that music companies do not equitably apply standards for lyrical content that is offensive to blacks as for other groups. Likewise, many American corporations have different standards for sponsoring artists whose music is offensive to blacks than they do for material that is offensive to other groups. That is, many American corporations sponsor, through endorsements and advertising on radio and television outlets, artists who promote negative messages about black people, but would not provide such sponsorship for artists who degrade other interest groups.
