@TheRevAl vs. #knockoutgame


In no uncertain terms, members of the Project 21 black leadership network are calling out many self-appointed black leaders, activists and journalists for thus far being unwilling to directly address the senseless "knockout game" violence terrorizing innocent Americans. Project 21 members are also thanking those others who are courageously speaking out against the unacceptable mayhem.

Reverend Al Sharpton, President of the National Action Network, and Marc H. Morial, President and CEO of the National Urban League, have joined forces with hip-hop legend Russell Simmons and Jewish leader Rabbi Marc Schneier, Chairman and President, respectively, of the Foundation for Ethnic Understanding, in speaking out on knockout game violence and the targeting of Jews.

Rev. Sharpton, Mr. Simmons, and Mr. Morial have each recorded messages of solidarity with the Jewish community and all victims of this outbreak in violence and are encouraging people to join them through social media by spreading the following message: 



End the #knockoutgame #sayNO2KO join the @FFEUny to end the violence +bigotry. Knockout #gameover

COMMENTING CHARGES
Per comment rate: $2
Payable by either clicking the BitCoin "tip me" button or the PayPal "donate" button in the sidebar.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
