BORN AND RAISED IN AKRON,OHIO,GROWING UP LISTENING TO BLUES/R&B/JAZZ & ROCK INFLUENCED MY EMOTIONS AND SPARKED A FIRE & DESIRE TO EXPRESS THOUGHT THROUGH MY WRITING, WHICH I LATER DEVELOPED A VOICE FOR ALL GENRES. THOUGH MY MOMS' DIDN’T APPROVE OF RAP MUSIC AT SUCH A YOUNG AGE IT DID NOT STOP ME FROM LISTENING TO WHAT HAD DEVELOPED INTO A DRUG…”HIPHOP” &”RAP MUSIC”. I'VE BEEN WRITING FOR YEARS.

Tom Joyner wants this information to reach his listeners.. You have probably heard of 'NUD' as a result of the Tom Joyner morning show related to Comp USA . NUD (Non Urban Dictate) is the acronym for a very subtle and litt le-known marketing term specifically directed toward people of color. 'Non Urban Dictate' These three words essentially mean that a company is not interested in the Black consumer. A NUD label means that a company does not want their marketing and advertising materials placed in media that claim an urban audience (black folks) as their main target. There are legitimate reasons for companies not using urban radio. It may be that Blacks don't index high in certain categories or that a company's strategy is to market to the Black consumer down the road after they have established a strong position in their primary target. But, NUD usually means that a company is not interested in the Black consumer. Companies evade discrimination liability by embracing it as theory rather than policy. As a service to Black consumers, the Urban Institute will list all companies that have a NUD policy. Armed with this information, we feel that Black consumers will be able to make informed buying decisions. Here's a list of Companies with NUD policies: 1. Starbucks 2. Jos. A Bank 3. Comp USA 4.
