Flavor In The Street

Hello World! Flavor In The Street was something I wanted to do, because I felt I had grown since my previous websites. I feel like I was seeing blogging from a different perspective. At one time, I saw this as more of something I did for fun, and I still continue to see blogging as this, but I also have grown a passion for it. I'm getting a platform, where I get to fully express my views on topics in music. I feel like my opinion is rarely heard, and I want to be viewed as the voice of my generation soon. We never get a platform to talk, and it's now just the beginning. 

The idea of Flavor In The Street was just to restart my brand. I had gotten the idea of the title from one of my favorite shows, "Living Single" along with the slang, 'Word On The Street.' As many of you know, Khadijah James had owned a magazine company titled, "Flavor." I got the idea by combining the two, which later birthed 'Flavor In The Street.'

I'm quite a hard-working kid. I manage to keep my grades together, while running this blog. I've never quite looked into adding more writers to help grow the brand, but of course I'm open to trying new ideas. I plan to adventure quite a lot when I get older, and my taste in music varies. 

#BUSTED: Teen, Rashid Polo Documents "Shopping While Black" + Becomes A Instant Hit

Vine teen user Rashid Polo became an internet sensation after his documented clips of store employees incautiously following him around went viral. In the six second clip, Polo positions the camera in front of him to expose how the various store clerks continue to supervise him in the background. The clip went from having a few hundred thousand views to receiving over 30 million views over the course of the week. This phenomenon also known as “shopping while black” uncovers the unfortunate highlights of racial profiling and undeniable discrimination that can arise in the mist of an innocent trip to the convenient store. Peep the clips above and below, followed by an exclusive interview with the 19-year-old Vine star.
