The "ghetto" app--is it racism?

MONDAY 1/23/12- On the surface, it sounds great. If you’re walking or driving around, your phone will alert you when you’re about to enter a high-crime neighborhood. However, it’s already being referred to as the “ghetto” app, and numerous civic groups are calling this bit of technology “stereotyping” and “discriminatory.”

Also, Steven Tyler has drawn harsh criticism for his Sunday performance of the national anthem before the Ravens-Patriots game. It seems some people weren’t quite prepared for Tyler’s rather forceful rendition of “The Star-Spangled Banner.”
