Catch da Flava Radio - Violence in Toronto and Super Bowl 50
On tonight’s Catch da Flava, we talked about the crisis currently going on in Toronto and the GTA. It has only been a month since the New Year and there have already been 12 homicides with the youngest victim being a 17-year-old boy. It is frightening that there have been this many homicides so early into the year. What could be causing this? One CBC article talks about the weather and how it may be to blame. This isn’t as ridiculous as it sounds, since more people are outside on the streets when it is warm outside. Speaking of weather, Super Bowl 50 was hot this year. Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos defeated Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers 24-10; It was a good day for most fans. However what really caught fire was Beyoncé’s halftime performance. The two previous performances by Bruno Mars and Coldplay were pretty solid, however Beyoncé caught the world’s attention. She performed her newest song called “Formation” and the song basically highlighted the issues many black people encounter in America with one of the biggest being police brutality. Beyoncé and her dancers were dressed in a fashion that resembled the Black Panthers and many took offense to that. Some saw it as an attack on police and some saw it as inspirational and powerful. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion and it will be interesting to see how this turns out.
