Each week in the news it seems as if a young person a famous RAP ARTIST loses their life to senseless VIOLENCE or even SUICIDE. In the last two years, FBI CRIME STATISTICS show a significant increase in MURDER, SUICIDE, and other VIOLENT CRIMES specifically in the AFRICAN AMERICAN COMMUNITY. Special guest co-host, psychology professor DR. TIFFANY KING, and special guest, therapist, DR. ANTHONY GRADY drop by to discuss what may be triggering BLACK YOUTH. What role does SOCIAL MEDIA play? SUICIDE in the BLACK COMMUNITY is often regarded as a "white problem," but in the last two years why have, young BLACK BOYS & GIRLS become the face of increasing SUICIDE RATES? Also, does the MUSIC INDUSTRY's promotion of DRILL MUSIC play a role in this increase in violence, or is the music a scapegoat for deeper underlying issues in our community? MENTAL DIALOGUE asking the questions America's afraid to ask. ALL I ASK IS THAT YOU THINK
