Minnie Riperton - Inside My Love (live)

All I can say is Wow!  Music heads have probably heard this song before and sample heads may have heard this flipped a few times(check ATCQ "Lyrics to Go" and Slum Village "the look of love remix" for the best examples) but Minnie kills this live, high notes and all.  Witness talent and effortless elegance music today definitely lacks.  peace.

you ain't no blood...

It's a new day, and finally, the perpetrators are being exposed.  I'm sick of seeing rappers making millions and at the same time glorifying a lifestyle that has killed and imprisoned millions of black, white and latino brothers.  They are doing a disservice to the kids, and this shit just ain't cool anymore.  Watch and spread the message,  we gotta step it up.  peace.

The Time is Now.

Two days ago we made history.  It was a beautiful sight running out at 11:o2 pm onto Broad Street to see Black kids, White kids, Latino kids, everybody together to celebrate the election of Barack Obama.  As I've come down from the high, reality has set in.  People, now is the most crucial time in American history.  We cannot let this monumental moment be the end of the struggle.  Having a Black President is a gift and a curse and only time will tell whether we will truly be better off.  I am not pessimistic but a realist and already I've seen friendships crumble due to peoples beliefs.  Listening to my friends talk about how much things will change makes me we really understand what that change will be?  I've heard many folks claim now that Barry is President Elect that racism is finally over.  Uh....I don't think so, just because one Black man has been elevated to this most prominent status in America does not mean that injustice doesn't still exist.  Systematic and Institutional Racism is alive and well, and I honestly feel that it may even get worse now that Barry is in the White House.  

I support Barack but I also am very critical of him and some of his policies, as any American should be of their President.  I pray that we as a people especially Black people do not follow blindly behind him.  He is a charismatic speaker and has a true presidential swagger but I can't help but think why would anyone want to be the leader of the free world while it is going to hell in a hand makes me think, what does he have to gain?  Is he that confident in himself that he can change things in 4-8 years, or does he have some other hidden motives? I dunno only time will tell.  All I know is that there are more than a few angry Mccain supporter, mainly white folks who are ready for an uprising, and if you've seen some of those Mccain/palin rally youtubes, you've seen how ignorant they can be. So while I'm cleaning my pistols all I can say is keep faith in God, love your brothers and sisters, and keep your eyes open because now the true test begins.  Peace.
