    That’s what’s up! We need more of this, doesn’t matter if he is doing for good press or just out of a good heart. The children still get to benefit from the end result.

    HOV, I’d like you to use that powerful voice of yours to address some issues in the black community. Nonetheless, I appreciate your efforts. Contrary to popular belief, money can heal some wounds.

    I agree with S. Mathis.
    I’m sure now though that we’ll look past him being mum on the shooting for so long.
    This is way more beneficial to Sean Bell’s widow and kids than Jay merely making a public statement about how unjust the shooting was.
