Well, I think a lot of people, middle-class teens included, could do more for this country and share experiences of the underprivledged rather than catch an MTV Special between reruns of Laguna Beach and a new TRL complete with ads to glorify inner-city shetto culture.Originally posted by Suburb Repairman
My stance: TOO MANY DISTRACTIONS for kids to actually care.
We had programs at Northern Colorado for alternative spring break, which took kids from our corner of the state and sent them to inner-city Detroit for a week to work with small kids there. Of course the only kids that went were the Liberal/Green Party "hippies" that everyone looked down on or talked out to because they actually cared about something other than "chasing tail" or "gatting a handle of McCormick Vodka". (Makes me wish I did more...)
