Life, Liberty, and Death: 25 Answers Running Through My Fingers

As usual, I take some of Diggame’s questions and answer them. Nothing more. Nothing less. He brings up great rhetorical questions. I just think that they shouldn’t be so rhetorical. And that is where the fun starts!!!

Why I Do Not Particularly Care About The Paula Deen Situation – CCL 75

“Ooooooo, Paula Deen used the word nigger!” many people have said as I work my way through Twitter and Facebook so I can increase my time of snappy put downs and unadulterated slander.

Black People Should WANT To Support Black People – Plain Truth 74

Ice Cube represented pure truth on this track. Basically, it is about being “true to your people, your heritage, and yourself”. These images are something to understand.

From the pages of the often referred A Nation At Risk to the high-shooting-but-low-aim having No Child Left Behind, there has always been a sense that American education “isn’t good enough”. Let movies like Waiting For Superman tell it, it is your teachers that […]

This is a pure classic coming from a crew that is both highly heralded yet not fully recognized. Listen to Cee-Lo show how his lyrical ability pushed him into the forefront. Listen to the rest of Outkast make sense of their present lives (in the 90’s, no doubt). Notice the realities that they speak […]
