Man who robbed McDonald's to win McDonald's jingle contest?

Tamien Bain robbed a McDonald's at the age of 14, served 12 years in custody, and has made the top five in McDonald's Big Mac chant competition. You can read more about his story of redemption here, and listen and vote for the finalists here. Via Obscure Store.

(Yet another story at a newspaper website that doesn't actually link to the website it's about.)

Wait a second, how is there any racism involved? Rap/urban music tends to be popular with the very same young male demographics that commit most drive-by shootings, regardless of their color. When's the last time you heard about a drive-by where the assailants were blasting Perry Como or Cher or Fats Domino or Yoyo Ma?

Race has absolutely nothing to do with it, but the fact that you made that assumption is pretty telling.
