Rolling Stone has been known to have some controversial covers in the past, however this one seems to strike a chord in the hearts of Americans in a negative way.
Boston Bombing suspect Jahar Tsarnaev is featured on the latest issue of Rolling Stone. Some are referring to the picture as a “cover boy” photo. Rolling Stone however feels by putting Tsarnaev on the cover they are not just making a bold statement but reaching a demographic that is loyal to their brand, the youth.
“Our hearts go out to the victims of the Boston Marathon bombing, and our thoughts are always with them and their families. The cover story we are publishing this week falls within the traditions of journalism and Rolling Stone’s long-standing commitment to serious and thoughtful coverage of the most important political and cultural issues of our day. The fact that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is young, and in the same age group as many of our readers, makes it all the more important for us to examine the complexities of this issue and gain a more complete understanding of how a tragedy like this happens.”
CVS and Walgreens have made it publicly known that they refuse to sell this issue of Rolling Stone as the find it offensive like most of the country at the moment. The photo might be offensive to many also because the photo depicts the potential terrorist as a rock star of some sorts, he looks cool rather than looking like someone that attempted to kill thousands earlier this year. Do you think Rolling Stone is pushing the envelope or just plain taking it too far?
Young Chop on the beat! don’t like what a hater gotta say? Here’s the new anthem Shut up!
NORTH SHORE HOSPITAL ANESTHESIOLOGIST TECHNICIAN SCARE BLACK ORDELIES WITH NOOSES AND RACIAL REMARKS!
North Shore Hospital in New York, which is currently the fastest growing and arguably the biggest health system in the tri-state area is hit with a racially charged scandal.
One of two orderlies of African American descent Elijah Crawford has filed a discrimination lawsuit with the Brooklyn Federal Court due to being terrorized with nooses and even being subjected to racist language. “Where I work, there are a lot of educated people with an immature way of behaving,…When I see a noose, it’s a statement of racial hate,” Crawford, 43, told the Daily News Tuesday. “It’s a threat. It’s a sign of terrorism.”
Mario Nistico, a technician at North Shore has already admitted to hanging a noose from a light fixture and then hanging another one from his locker a year later!
“How can Obama be smart? he is Black” according to the lawsuit.
Nistico claims the noose “goof” wasn’t directed towards the African American employees but rather an amployee who he described as difficult. “Our policy and practices promote diversity and respect for employees. Unfortunately, we can’t get into a discussion about the allegations because it’s under litigation.”-Terry Lynman
