BLACK SKINHEAD - Kanye West

Blk+Skinhead+1.jpg
The premiere performance of Kanye West's single "Black Skinhead" also written as BLKKK SKKKN HEAD on Saturday Night Live "SNL" in May sent chills up my spine. Spine-tingling fear and the aggression that can be found in the depths of the human spirit that resides in all of us ( even those with a "sunny" disposition ). Are we brave enough to tap into it?

This was popular in the 80's, when people gathered together on block parties and used to dance on these new drum beats. Later on, the Djs started to scratch, pu

Hummm! Is this the best we have to offer? I don't quite understand his reasons for being there. And what's up with the Godmother? She doesn't seem to speak good English herself. Did I hear her say 'mens'? As I recall, I was always taught 'men' is already plural.It's time for our community to realize that recognition is not always a symbol of positivity, but rather a facade. This is no different than painting our face white and tap dancing across the floor for entertainment. Do we really believe

Black Like He: Will Obama Change Hip Hop ?

Black Like He: Will Obama Change Hip Hop? by Paul Scott Hate it or love it, the one good thing that can be said about commercialized Hip Hop of the thuggish variety (gangsta rap) is its resilience. The day after a nuclear holocaust, the only things that will be left on the planet will be roaches, Spam and Snoop Dog. Since its "official" coming out party in the form of NWA's "Straight Outta Compton, a generation ago, the longevity of lyrics spoutin' tales of drug slangin, gang bangin' and bli
