Holiday Disco and Fundraiser


Ken Stiggers

Mr. Announcement: "Ghetto Science Public Affairs Network presents a press conference by the Unemployed Deejays and Emcees Union number 6 and 2/3. Today, the union recognizes its one-year anniversary. The purpose of this press conference is to announce its upcoming holiday event: the 'We Still Need A Job Holiday Disco and Fundraiser.'"

DJ "Loose Booty" McBride: "On behalf of all the deejays, emcees, artisans, technicians, engineers and practitioners who are unemployed, I want to congratulate President Barack Obama on his re-election and thank members of the Ghetto Science community who supported our 'Ghettocratic Party, Get Out and Vote' drive.

"The mainstream media reports that employment has increased, but what about us? Mitt Romney said that the president gave gifts to folks like us. What was he talking about? None of us received anything but job rejections and evasive employment recruiters. A lot of us are so frustrated that we might consider doing what Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five suggested in their rap song 'The Message':

'I'd think it would be cheaper / If I just get a job and learn to be a 
street sweeper.'

"I understand that the government seems to be headed toward a financial cliff, but folk who are still jobless are right at the edge. I hope our elected officials will work together to save the economy from free falling into financial despair.

"So, come party with us at our holiday disco and fundraiser during the Post Thanksgiving Hot Wing Happy Hour at Clubb Chicken Wing."
