Gimme the bridge now!

Everybody’s riding twenty three year old Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab’s dick and guess what, Underprivileged- Journalism is too.
As Serialnigga publisher Creaux Steele notes, “How did Farouk miss the allure of acquiring Bling, wearing sagging pants and becoming a rapper; and what needs to be done to make an entire generation embrace his values?”
If you haven’t seen our tribute to him, Better To Have Tried & Failed…, check it out.
Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab isn’t 2009’s only notable, however. Little Rock, Arkansas’ Abdul Hakim Mujahid Muhammad’s protest at Little Rock, Ark. Army recruiting booth received a considerable number of calls for recognition from UPM Network members. U.S. Army Major Nidal Hasan’s November 5 protest at Fort Hood did too.
While Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab’s my personal pick, however, the network overwhelmingly picked Jersy’s Hassan Shakur, Oakland’s Lovelle Mixon and Seattle’s Maurice Clemmons as their favorites.
