|Then the nitwits wanted to make a big deal about this being a skirt. Kanye had on skirt. this is what people was wearing BEFORE the European showed up. there was a history before then, you do realize that?|
i was lookin thru the nets like i do, when i came across the story of Mos Def making it back to the US in time for Spike Lee's Block party. i was hit by the way the peoples was showing him love. not because folks dont show love, but it was the kind of love that he was gettin. it had respect drippin from it.
for me, sometimes i have a hard time with these revolution talk type dudes, because few of em actually practice what they preach. hey have a lot of rhetoric, but few actual push to establish something meaningful in the community, besides places to charge for performances, recorded music and merchandise. and im not saying that the baw going to the Motherland alone is enuff to fill that void. what i AM saying is that, its a good look.
i think in a lot of cases, people forget that this is a BIG world, because the speed of communication actually has u thinkin its small. there is almost 194 MILLION square miles to the planet earth, and this is the poor part. the vast resources in abundance, are abroad. to see the brother actually showing what it look like to be a modern day AfriCAN, modern, sophisticated, cultured, was a good piece of media to see in this ocean of this swirling buffoonery that is this generation on the internet. i mean, nobody wanted to be a drug dealer when they was a kid. they decided to be one because they could SEE what they considered success in their immediate realm of possibilities and gravitated toward that. if what a person can see can lay a foundation, or at the very least raise the question, then im glad that these fools have a chance to see THIS.
