About the judge, Marvin Arrington, who gave a good "talking to" to a group of Blacks in his courtroom...
On Booker Rising, I commented: that it has been done before in the Baltimore area, and that a well known defense attorney had radio ads on local "hip hop" stations lamenting how he is tired of seeing Blacks in the court room. I also mentioned that a well known family run funeral home in the Baltimore area did the same thing. I asked, "What good did it do when the crime rate is still out of control?"
In the Baltimore area, a judge did the same thing. A well known defense attorney did the same thing in radio commercials on hip hop stations in Baltimore. A local funeral home did the same thing in Baltimore. The result?
The same ole same ole.
I understand his frustrations, but just talking won't do it. Only one on one intervention will do it.
This morning on The Tom Joyner Morning Show, the judge was interviewed (audio link here) and he stated that he has a scholarship program for Blacks studying law and that he is in the community working with young Blacks. That makes it a lot different than what Cosby did and, IMO, better. He's actually doing something more than talking.
