#BlackBoysRock (In case you forgot) Part 1

Black Boys Rock! I was reading back over my old blog posts, and old stories in the Tuesday file that took me deep into my youtube subscriptions. This time it led me back to a video by internet controversy in the form of man Tommy Sotomayor. And while watching a few of his videos I found myself. 1 re-evaluating how actually controversial he is. 2 examining the idea he brought up in one of his earliest videos.
