The 2013 BET Hip-Hop Awards is Here!

On PowerTalk with Lorraine Jacques-White we had an amazing show today “TalkBack Fridays” where callers can call in and discuss the issues of the week. Its that time of year again The Bet Hip-Hop Awards has arrived in the A and Powrtalk kicked it off with the #1 Hustler in Atlanta Mr. T.I Harris. He stopped by the studio to talk about his birthday celebration’s happening this week and the Awards. Off course we were the first to confirm that he has been Nominated for “Hustler of the Year”, he was so excited!

In Addition on a serious note, Rev. R.L. White called in to give us some serious insight on the gun “buyback” program which is a program instituted to purchase privately owned firearms. A “reward” is usually paid for these firearms. The goal, when purchasing is done by the police, is to reduce the number of firearms owned by civilians, and provide a process whereby civilians can sell their privately owned firearms to the government without risk of prosecution.

According to the NRA, 67% of homes have firearms. But how many of those homes don’t use them for anything except the “feeling” of home protection and gathering dust in a drawer or a closet.
