White man's world.....So why one wanna be showcased in the white man's world on Leno and such....WHy is there so much emphasis put on being acknowledged in the white man's world....For the money is that it? at what cost bredrens and sistren? Consider perhaps the bredrens have been asked to appaer on these shows and perhaps refused... it is possible. Why does it matter?
Rasta don't partake of sour grapes....
I don't watch those things, you check... becuz ini site it essential to be supportive of the bredrens that one choses to acknowledge oneself...why ones looking to be validated by the white male nationalism? Why so vexed about this and that? White man nationalism is a philospohy of the lemming following the crowd running off the cliff, so why ones wanna go down to those depths? WHy ones wanna hail up the very same $Hit$tem that downpresses the i? Why ones wanna be licking the heels of the oppressor and trying to get that man's pat on the dread, a coin here and there. Selling culture....pop culture at best and look at what it has done to the youth....look at that...
This thread started out with a nice vibe of some tunes and now it become a "who is" blacker, whiter, more this and dat.. bumba klatt.....INI site ini manifest support for those bredrens and sistren that are local to ini, in i village, neighborhood.. ini not into this white male nationalism of culture that is bought and sold on the NYSE....INI check out local musicans and artistians. SUPPORT THAT.... When I first heard of this hasidic man i figured he was from chicago , near where i live...not knowing that he is national... should i close my ears and burn the music because of the fame that he has recieved from others, becuz he is separate from i by man's demographic terms of race and creed and gender and this and that?
As a wombman iself, should i stop listening to sizzla cuz he disses women in some of his music, or do i listen exclusively becuz he black. Should I smash Bob Nesta cds cuz he is half white and he has recieved international recognition and continues to amass a large amount of money, even after his body dead. All the radio stations play him even those owned by Clear Channel......
I site many ones with dreads refusing to wear any shoes but "Nike" or Addias. Whats with that? Nike is one of the largest exploiters of people of color throughout the world. Flash bling bling shoes of slavery.... Are you supporting your feet with handmade shoes made by the bredrens and sistren and supporting them?
Should ones burn fiayh pon the Marely brothers for thier presence on MTV, and becuz they have white blood. They don't say Haile I selassie i in all of thier music. Niether does Sizzla or buju or anthony B. Should i stop siting Russell Simmons mos def slams becuz he has a show on HBO or should i only be aware of it becuz it on HBO? Is he a sell out cuz he doesn't limit his guests to 100% black men.
See some of these "success ful" ones have the opportunity to build a furture for the youth to come who will speak louder and more definitely and today a platform is being built in the white man's world to do that. Is is a dirty business, but that is what it is.. .IF that is what the i want to feel equal, then give thanks and praises for that. TO possess that level of materialism that ones seeks, well then one have to be surrounded by those things. If that is so important then that is where the heart is.
If being on a Jay Leno show is so important... i just don't know what to say to the i....If the white man has something that you want, well go about it the same way he did to get it.....steal, rape kidnap and lie.....cuz he not gonna give it up for the i....see he never gave up the 40 acres and a mule, that he thiefed from the red man.
See, the same affirmation that one seeks is the same on that the ones be judging.
Have you ever heard the term
THE REVOLUTION WILL NOT BE TELEVISED........
Don't like the music, don't listen to it... then it goes away for the i. Everyone has truth to speak, in thier own way...It is not what ones says cause talk is cheap.....Action speaks louder than words and know that often the music is more conscious than the lyrics...
LOVE IS THE ONLY LAW TO OBEY
Blessed love rasta far I--the fearless royalty
Haile I Selassie I-Power of the trinity WORD SOUND POWER
