Show your support for Baltimore! Um, by shaving your head?

This is what happens when your ego takes over…

Mother Jones has some interesting facts about Baltimore:

  • Of the 100 largest counties in the country, they found, Baltimore was where children in low-income households faced the worst odds in terms of upward mobility
  • Life expectancy in 15 Baltimore neighborhoods, including the one where Freddie Gray lived, is shorter than in North Korea, according to an analysis by the Washington Post.
  • Baltimore teens between 15 and 19 years old face poorer health conditions and a bleaker economic outlook than those in economically distressed cities in Nigeria, India, China, and South Africa
  • In 2014, Baltimore—a city where the unemployment rate (8.1 percent) is nearly one and a half times than the national rate (5.5 percent)—had one of the largest gaps between the rich and poor in the country

How did Baltimore end up in such a sad sate? Must be that republican leadership they’ve had! Oh, wait:
cummings

Elijah Cummings (D-Part of the Problem) is the US Rep for Maryland’s 7th congressional district, serving since 1996.

Baltimore has been a Democratic stronghold for over 150 years, with Democrats dominating every level of government. In virtually all elections, the Democratic primary is the real contest.”
So how does a “celebrity” show their support for his devastated home town?

If only the media didn't have to portray this...

If only the media didn’t have to portray this…


“R&B singer Sisqo is joining the list of celebrities taking a stance against the media’s portrayal of his hometown Baltimore, Maryland. In doing so, he decidedly took a much different approach and sacrificed one of his ever-evolving trademarks: his hair.”
Sisqo proves he's "down for the struggle"

Sisqo proves he’s “down for the struggle”


I sacrificed my hair as a symbol of support for the struggle that Baltimore & most inner-city youth face everyday. My hair has been my signature around the world since our careers started hand n hand with being a Baltimore native good,bad, or ugly. It wrenched my heart when I saw the way that we were being portrayed to the world media. The fact that I was unable to march on the streets of my city with my brothers & sisters physically made me feel as if I needed to make a statement that couldn’t be tainted, twisted, or misconstrued. I have worked with local schools, churches & youth groups in the past. Myself & DRU HILL are working to do more in the future.* So hang in there young people…and remember think outside-of-the-box. Be better then the best & always remember intellect over emotion.”
Sisqo, who is worth $4 to $8 million, sure knows how to step it up for his community! Maybe his brothers and sisters  would be more appreciative if he gave them another “thong song“.
Intellect over emotion...

Intellect over emotion…

*I Googled “Sisqo and charity work” and came up with just one result, from 2000. He’d better get his PR person on that, stat.

  1. Outstanding post, DCG!

     
  2. So all those looting protesters worry more about wiping their ass, then social justice?

    They should show their support by killing themselves somewhere quietly. As an interesting aside I was reading military suicide stats and whites make up about 87 to 89% of military suicides, knee-gross only make up 1-2% which tells me that civilized peoples do not flourish is violence mayhem soaked environments while knee-gross seem to enjoy violence, rape, murder and mayhem must be that afrikan dna….but they are god’s most cherished people and the true izraelites, just ask any black radical

     
  4. It is not just that human trash accumulates in the ghettos of our cities—it is that those who govern those cities turn what accumulates in them into trash.
    When something happens that I don’t like, I usually go to the local Walmart, steal everything I can carry, and then burn the store. Don’t you?

    “Elijah Cummings (D-Part of the Problem)” 😀
    I love it!

     
  6. Here is a good post that you might like to read:
    “Baltimore is whose fault?”

  7. Looks like ‘sisqo’ sacrificed his manhood long before he sacrificed his hair.

     
  8. I think he should change the spelling of his name to Cisco – as in the fortified wine known as “bum wine” or “liquid crack.” That would be more fitting.
    It’s truly awful stuff, a friend and I used to buy it (she liked it, I was happy to help her drink it.) Nasty. Especially the peach. Yack.
    Mind you, this was over 20 years ago.
