DISARMING BRITAIN SEASON: SHOULD THIS BILLBOARD BE REMOVED?

The Billboard below, promoting Channel 4’s Disarming Britain season, which takes a look at the current rise in violence on Britain’s streets, was brought to my attention today by photographer Lloyd Best. Best (a black man) say’s he walks past this Billboard on a daily basis and finds it offensive. He is currently in the process of getting the authorities to remove the billboard from the public’s view. I am interested to know what your thoughts are on this matter? Is the billboard offensive? should it be removed ASAP?

QUOTE OF THE DAY: TERRENCE HOWARD

“I despise rap music because it doesn’t tell a story anymore. Music cannot be harmful. There is a war song that tribes play when they go out to war, and rap has become a continuous war song without a cause. I will not be a part of that, that’s why I had trouble with the songs on ‘Hustle & Flow.’ (Pride Magazine – July issue)
