Meaningful Protest In L.A. Against 50 Cent Billboards

Black protesters in Los Angeles succeeded in getting Paramount studios into removing billboards promoting 50 Cent's new movie, "Get Rich or Die Tryin."
Gun violence is one of the leading causes of death for young black males in South Central Los Angeles and across urban America." -organizer Najee Ali of Project Islamic HOPE
I'm not sure what or who Project Islamic HOPE is but in this case they're doing the right thing.

We need more black leaders, black organizations and black citizens of all sorts to speak out against gun violence and other crime that is ravaging young black men. It is understandable that black youth are less inclined to listen to people of other ethnicities. For the rapid change most needed, blacks themselves need to spread the message.
