2 November 2022 - Public Enemy - 911 Is A Joke

This joke, co-written by and primarily performed by reality show dating star Flavor Flav, is about the paramedic response in predominantly black neighborhoods.  It is not about police response - only paramedic/ambulance response.  

I think a lot of people look at Flavor Flav is a joke because, well, the clocks, Flavor of Love's three seasons.  Come on, man - just pick New York.  However, he wrote and performed poignant songs like this one - and delivered the hard messages with a side of humor.   It's somewhat brilliant, really.
