Devin in the Atlanta Snow on Christmas

by Amani Channel
I’m loving technology. I’m in the Bay and my wife and son are in the A.

Devin’s taken pictures in the snow in years past, but he knows what it is this year.

It’s raining here, and snowing there.

Happy Holidays!

Merry XMas!

by Amani Channel

I’m in California spending my first Christmas with my family in Los Angeles and the Bay Area. I haven’t seen my aunt and uncle in about 10 years, which is almost unbelievable.

It’s a good feeling to be with family this time of year.

Enjoy your blessings, there is abundance, and life is good.

My Urban Report has been on a brief hiatus, however, I just ran across an excellent piece of journalism that was produced by Youth Radio, and aired on NPR.

This is the type of story that you rarely see on local TV news, however, it is giving a voice to young women who are being exploited by the game.

I’m talking about the pimp game. The life style is glorified in music, but it is hardly a glamorous life as told by Denise Tejada.

Please listen to this two-part series. It is chilling and inspiring.
