Peace, My name is TC and I'm with the Hip Hop Caucus National office. I've also been a community activist in Greensboro, NC for over 20yrs. Some would ask why is the hip hop community involved in the discussion of fracking. Hip Hop is the new voice of the young/young adult, and we're using this platform to inform them of the dangers of fracking to community/environment. We want to use our voice to expose the dangers of fracking to our environment. Fracking endangers our air, land, and water. We at the Hip Hop Caucus see climate change as our "Lunch Counter Moment". We're not just fighting for Civil Rights but for our very existence. We can not allow our voices to be silent when our lives are at stake. We must let go of fossil fuels and invest in clean energy in order to not hurt the planet and ourselves. Hip Hop is the music of resistance all over the world. So let the music play for the stopping of FRACKING

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
