    Now that you’ll have taken on the education challenge V103, clean up your darn act with all that buffoonery that you’ll have on the airwaves destroying young people’s lives…

    There are many more of the buffoonery on other black radio stations. They all need to clean up their acts. Sarah, you are correct. I think it is sad, many of the young people only know hip hop and no other forms of music in which black people created. It is a kind gesture for V103 to contribute to those who are the most needy in terms of education etc. Therefore, horizons need to be broadened. Education is key to improving people’s mindsets. Some hip hop is ok if it is the good form of hip hop, but the other is pure poison. As you have stated, the gutter hip hop is a major killer for many black youth.
