Freedom Of Expression On Trial

A California statute making it a felony for anyone to participate in a street gang, have knowledge that a street gang has engaged in criminal activity, or benefit from that activity has brought creative expression into question. Just ask Rapper Brandon Duncan also known as  Tiny Doo who could be  facing 25 years to life in prison  if convicted of  nine counts of criminal street gang conspiracy because prosecutors allege he and 14  alleged gang members increased their stature and respect following a rash of shootings in San Diego in 2013. Prosecutors point to Tiny Doo's album, "No Safety," and to lyrics like "Ain't no safety on this pistol I'm holding" as examples of a "direct correlation to what the gang has been doing." Duncan has denied any involvement with any gang   and no one suggests the rapper ever actually pulled a trigger and he has no criminal history.

What’s your take? Song lyrics that glorify violence are nothing new. Is this a case of Creative Freedom of Expression or promotion of criminal street gang activity?

Justice and Equality

As we honor the legacy of Dr. King’s ministry of racial, social and economic justice this week, I am challenged to look forward as we reflect on his accomplishments.  His vision of economic equality and justice has yet to be actualized for many Americans. Dr. King stated that "The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy."We are at a time of challenge and controversy in America.


What do you think Dr. King would say about today’s America? What should we as a people do to advance the goals of justice and equality for all in 2015?
