I would like to share with you since it is Sunday what has been taking place on the different community affairs radio shows across the state, it is the discussion concerning tax incentives. One of the big issues is these tax credits, especially the Entertainment Tax Credits and the reason for my concern is that there are Gangsta Rap companies that contribute to the criminal element.

During the 60-day fiscal session next April, it is my hope that the legislature will take a look to cut the strings to entertainment companies who promote the criminal element. Could there be backlash from the NAACP and lead to a Rapper Boycott? It may all be a possibility, after the not guilty verdict outrage against Torrance Lil Boosie Hatch, a clear message should be sent in which any entertainment company who decides to engage in projects that degrage their communities or exploit minorities and individuals with Disabilities that this type of behavior will not be tolerated.

I would like to conclude with a thought from the late longtime community activist in Abbeville John Winn: “Take pride in your communities for the sake of your children.” To read the article, visit: http://theadvocate.com/home/3029941-125/panel-to-review-tax-incentives

About watchdogofladisability

Hi, My name is Jason W. Weill and I am a 2007 graduate of the University of Louisiana at Lafayette as well as an individual diagnosed with Asbergers Syndrome, an Autism Spectrum Disorder. I created Watchdog of La Disability because I am a non-partisan watchdog who not only holds our leaders accountable in Baton Rouge but also turns heads. Watchdog of La Disability will also focus on important Disability related issues using the most powerful media sources in TV,Print, and Radio: KTBS-TV Shreveport, WWL AM/FM/TV New Orleans along with the Times Picayune Newspaper and WAFB-TV along with the Advocate in Baton Rouge. I hope you find my Watchdog side to be of use because being a watchdog means being fair to both sides and holding anyone accountable who decides to take avantage of the disabled.
