It Needs To Be CED- Responsible Media (Reposted from the archives of August 24, 2004)

It Needs To Be CED- Responsible Media (Reposted from August 24, 2004)

Now regardless of what I say, certain people are going to take this the wrong way. But at this juncture of the game, I could care less. I’d like to think that I am a responsible person. And with being a responsible person, it is my duty to make sure that people around me are responsible as well. With that being CED, I am a responsible writer/journalist/media person, whatever you want to call me. So with that responsibility, I have to say what’s on my mind when something is bothering me, especially when it affects my community and specifically our children!

As black people or minorities or as people of color, we are always judged by false or negative images that are perpetuated by one or even a small percentage of ‘our people’. We know that we are viewed negatively in the media and as much as we complain, we don’t do what’s necessary to showcase the positives, which is at a higher percentage of our race, culture and community. With this being stated why is it that the Black media joins in? It is common knowledge among the minorities that the majority of us are law-abiding, good-natured citizens, but yet, because of a small number of ignorant people amongst us, we are seen as ignorant as well. What makes this problem worse is the influence it has on children. Read more…

OK, I’m back and I think I’m staying this time! Between trying to bring great writers and content to the site and the overall business of the site, I have neglected my duties as an All Around Good Guy. I am bringing back the Top Ten list! And more blaring Cedit, oops, I mean, more interesting topics and discussions that Needs To Be Ced!

Anyway, we all read or at least we should all be reading and i have soooooooo many magazine subcriptions that I can open up my own newstand! With that being CED, here are 10 of my favorite magazines! (In no particular order!)

1. Vibe– The leader in urban entertainment, you can’t front! A good set of writers and stability.
2. XXL– Arguably, the best Hip-Hop magazine currently on newstands, The YN, Elliot Wilson, arrogant and all (and with every reason to be!), sets the tone and raises the bar when it comes to journalism and not holdiing tongues!
3. Blender– A good music magazine that usually has a great number of reviews in each issue. Read more…
