BrooWaha Woo Hoo!

by Soulglo (writer), Los Angeles, January 25, 2007


I haven't been a Broowaha contributor for very long, but so far so good. I've been browsing the site today and I am very impressed with the quality of the articles and authors who contribute. Media outlets such as this are what make America great, not only do we have freedom of speech, we have forums like BrooWaha where people of all ages, ethnicities and political opinions can share their ideas and points-of view.

It can be difficult for aspiring journalists such as myself to find places that are willing to publish what we have to say. Since we don't have mile-long resumes, we are often overlooked and underestimated. Perhaps they forget that young "whipper-snappers" have opinions about the state of the world today that are just as valid as our parents and employers. Our youth keeps us out of the mainstream media (can you name any significant journalists under 30.....40?) which is unfair. Just because we go to concerts and still "hang out" with friends doesn't mean we cant have a positive impact in the media. I have had many professors that have boasted about how they read multiple newspapers everyday and how appalled they are that her or his students never read the paper or watch the news. Perhaps it is the fact that we feel isolated from the media, maybe we feel as if we are not the audience being written to. The popularity of such publications as L.A. Weekly and City Beat should be an indication that young people do care about current events and the goings-on around town, we just prefer our news with a little flair.

So, hats off to all the staff at BrooWaha that have opened up this opportunity for those of us who have been ignored by the mainstream media for too long, you are one of the things that make America one of the best places on Earth to be alive in!
