UK BLACK MAINSTREAM PERSONALITIES FAIL TO ACKNOWLEDGE HAITI CRISIS

Do you know what I’ve noticed? That not one black personality in this country (currently enjoying mainstream success) has bothered to address the situation in Haiti or helped to drum up support for the relief effort. Not ONE! Taio Cruz, Dizzie Rascal, Tinchy Stryder, Chipmunk, Lemar, JLS, Alexandra Burke, Alesha Dixon, the list is endless! – What’s the matter??? Cat got your tongues??? TYPICAL! ………………………………………………………………………. If you wish to donate to the Haiti earthquake appeal then please click HERE.
