R Kelly Trial still delayed after 5 years
Black America Web has an article that highlights the 5 years that have passed since R & B singer R Kelly was charged with child pornography for allegedly videotaping sex acts with a teen female.
See the entire article here.
According to the article, "R. Kelly has had six best-selling albums, three nationwide tours, a multitude of hits and awards – but no trial." What's the hold up?
Has anyone ever wondered why R. Kelly chose to call himself "The Pied Piper of R & B?" You remember the story of the pied piper don't you? It's a tale about a man who played the flute in a way that put a spell on a number of children, so that they couldn't help but to follow him.
The article made me reflect on one of my favorite episodes of Boondocks that ran a couple of years ago on the The Cartoon Network. For some reason I can't post the You Tube clip from the show's 2nd episode titled "The Trial of R. Kelly." But please take a couple of minutes to view the clip here .
As an aside, I hear Boondocks may be coming back for a second season next month. It will be interesting to see how it is received in a post-Imus environment. I have some thoughts on the subject that I would like to share later.
