      I found this article today. What feelings do you have on the new 50 Cent movie " Get Rich or Die Trying"?

      Civil Rights group Set to Speak Out Against 50 Cent's Movie
      What? A coalition of Los Angeles Community
      leaders, and parents who have lost children to gun
      violence are demanding that Paramount Studios
      remove the billboards and posters that are currently
      being used to promote the upcoming release of
      Gangsta rapper Curtis" 50 CENT" Jackson's new movie
      "Get Rich Or DieTryin." The billboards and posters
      depict the gangsta rapper "50 CENT" armed with
      handguns and pointing them.

      Why: " Gun violence is one of the leading causes of death for
      young black males in South Central Los Angeles and
      across urban America. It's irresponsible for Paramount
      Pictures to promote and market a movie that glorifies
      carrying guns.Guns are weapons of mass destruction,
      that are used to kill people, we demand that Paramount
      Pictures remove these negative images of death
      and destruction,images that our young children are
      influenced by stated Najee Ali of Project Islamic HOPE

      Yeah, removing the billboards is not where the focus should be. Focus on the young brothers that they are so concerned about. YT ain't gonna do anything but laugh at them and collect their box office money. Besides, if they want it down...Destroy it themselves!
