This morning President Obama gave a very passionate and heart felt speech about the TERRIBLE shootings at Newtown where little kids were shot down like in a western movie by a crazy man. You can tell the President meant business this morning.
He said “Shame on you” if you cannot support gun control here in America. I got my remote and before I changed the channel I knew in my mind the Fox News would not be showing the President’s speech. Guess what readers? CNN was broadcasting the President’s speech, MSNBC was broadcasting the President’s speech, BUT FOX NEWS DID NOT BROADCAST THE PRESIDENT’S VERY IMPORTANT SPEECH! WHAT???
Instead a Fox News anchor was talking about the President’s so called falling ratings. THIS IS A FLAT OUT OUTRAGE ON THE PART OF FOX NEWS!! It again shows that Fox News led by the bigot Sean Hannity is in the bed with the Republican Party/Tea Party etc.
How can MSNBC and CNN realize the importance of the President’s emotional speech and the racist Fox News did not? THIS IS TERRIBLE readers. It proves for sure that Fox News is doing EVERYTHING TO MAKE THE PRESIDENT LOOK BAD. The President was giving a speech about kid’s getting killed at a school that were 6 or 7 years old! The President was giving a speech on gun violence EVERYWHERE in America and Fox News was blasting the President’s “falling ratings”!!! TERRIBLE TERRIBLE TERRIBLE!!
Fox News ratings have been falling big time. Yes there still ahead of MSNBC and CNN. But they are falling. You want to know why they are falling readers? Because of the STUPID actions like they did this morning by not broadcasting the PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES IMPORTANT SPEECH. I wonder if this was President Romney if Fox News would have done the same? Gordon Curvey

A few weeks ago I was on my way back to my residence/office/studio here in Seattle and I passed by Franklin High School here in Seattle and saw a bunch of students standing outside waiting to get into the gym for a event.
I also saw a tour bus with MTV “Get Schooled” all over it. I quickly found out what the event was about. It was a tour with music and sports stars going all over the U.S. to schools talking to the youth about staying in school and to get a good education.
I was lucky enough to have my video camera in my car and MTV’s people made a call back to New York to verify I am a legit video program here in Seattle so I can cover the event for Music Inner City TV. MTV knew of my show and I was let in to cover the event and I got interviews with Common and MTV’s Sway.
One of stars who has used his name to speak out about the importance of a good education and staying in school is singer John Legend who has been nominated for this years Critic’s Choice Award for a song he wrote and song he produced call “Waiting For Superman”
Legend is doing his part to speak to the youth about having a good education all over the place including his concerts all over America. This is great on the part of entertainers like Legend, Common, Keri Hilson, sports star Shaquille O’Neal and others to say to the youth that a education is very very important.
As some of you may know, EVERY guest on “Music Inner City TV” over the twenty years I have done the program is asked to speak to the youth about staying in school, staying away from drugs and more. The youth is our future and they need to know how important a education is. Real talk folks. Gordon Curvey

I have wrote about this before but I am going to write again about it. And that is cats like Ludacris fakin the funk with the his Ludacris Foundation. A organization started to help youth be the best they can be etc.
His mom helps him runs the foundation. But here is the major problem I have with guys like Ludacris and even Snoop Dogg.
While it is great what he is doing for the youth with his foundation, Luda says one thing and raps about another.
Have you listened to some of Luda’s songs and lyrics? He often raps about what he is going to do to a b…h or what uses the “N” word and how big a females p…y is and he is going to put his d..k in a female etc. Readers is this a role model for kids? Is this what kids should look up to in a role model?
I have a big problem with cats like Ludacris who do one thing and says another. Sorry to say, Snoop Dogg is in the same boat.
Snoop has his youth football league down in Southern Cali. This is great. Kids cannot play in his league unless they are doing good in school. BUT like Luda, have you listened to Snoop’s lyrics? He OFTEN raps about smoking bud, and other negative lyrics. But then he turns around and talks to kids about positive stuff. Is this right? I say no.
I had a chance to interview Snoop’s mom a few months ago here in Seattle, Evangelist Beverly Brodous Green. A very nice down to earth lady and I can tell she is proud of her son, but she also is unhappy with a few things with her son too. All mothers want the best for her kids. Snoop’s mom is no different.
So in ending, this is just my views. If you are going to preach to kids about right and wrong. And if you are going to be a REAL role model, then act like it truly. Not half way. Don’t say one thing and do another. This is “One Man’s Opinion” by Gordon Curvey

Denzel Washington is not just a Academy Award winning mega-star, this brotha cares about helping at-risk kids to stay in school and to get a good education.
Washington has been a spokesperson for the Boys and Girls Clubs Of America for years. And he is a great person to be a spokesperson too. Because is a big time role model for young kids to look up to from the inner city and out.
A lot of kids mainly from the inner city do not have a strong male role model to look up to. So Washington can be that strong male role for them. They can say, if he can come up from poverty and become a multi-millionaire Hollywood star, then I can be somebody too.
What Denzel is trying to say is in order to be someone you have to stay in school and get a good education.
For our almost twenty years on the air with “Music Inner City TV” and now “Music Inner City Radio” and “Sports Inner City Online” I ask EVERY guest to say something positive to the youth about staying in school, and getting a good education and other positive things. It is the last question we ask EVERY guest since December 1990 on M.I.C-TV. On TV, radio and the net, we are not just about entertainment, we are about education.
A big shout to Denzel Washington for every thing he is doing in Hollywood and for the work he is doing for the Boys and Girls Clubs and for at risk kids.

“One Man’s Opinion” by Gordon Curvey
To many times we hear of negative stories concerning hip-hop and rap artists. To many times we read about rappers going to jail for different reasons like Lil Wayne, T.I and others. But here is a POSITIVE story.
Nas is going back to obtain his high school degree that he did not get when he was younger. This a very positive story.
He is saying to his fans and to youth all over that a high school education and a degree is important. And Nas is saying also that he is a role model and wants young inner city kids to take education serious and to go to school and get a education.
Yes we read stuff about Nas and his wife Kelis who is also a entertainer and their kind of nasty divorce in the news etc, but this story needs to be told too folks!!
As a OG in the music game, Nas is one of my favorite artists. Truth be told, he has not got the recognition he should get. Not to many cats can throw down lyrics like Nas. He tells a story about politics, relationships, life in the “hood” and more. Nas is a true hip-hop king!
Shout out to Nas for saying to kids, “Stay in school and get your education”.
