    Tue, 3 May 2016

    On today’s show: Last night on WWL-TV Channel 4 – Eric Paulsen had a story titled “Taking A Stand.” In the story while interviewing some local rappers, a man starts yelling and cursing at the rappers. A fight broke out that led to the man on the ground being punched by another man. Ultimately, the man beating the man on the ground reached in the man’s pocket and pulled out a handgun – then pointed the gun at the man on the ground. No shots were fired – but it showed how quickly words turn into violence and how common it is for a gun to be present during a confrontation. As the camera rolled during the interview, the verbal confrontation began over someone being in the wrong neighborhood. Eric Paulsen was visibly affected by the close encounter. During the verbal confrontation laced with profanity and even during the fight and the pulling out of the gun – a young boy about 2 was watching and stood next to his father holding his hand during it all. The image of the 2-year-old boy watching it all – was a stark reminder of how violence is part of an everyday cycle. Also in the story was a mother of 4 sons all killed by gun violence. What will stop this?

Old Navy was immediately supported by tweets from interracial families applauding the company for the new ads. Are you an interracial couple? How do people react to you? Are there cultural boundaries that are difficult to deal with as an interracial couple?
