Jay Electronica is the definition of an artist. I can’t wait to see how he puts together his project. This video is dope, I love the clip with The Minister at the end.

Wow!!!

I would be interested to hear how the regular visitor and contributors to this site feel about the Farrakhan footage, which is now 20 years old (from March 13, 1990). I was 14 years old at the time. Do you have a different perspective when you look at this, 20 years later, as an adult (I assume that most of us are, we come here).

Note to readers, I am about to get on a soapbox, spewing what comes to mind (breaking from what would be the norm on this website). I am actually adding this disclaimer after re-reading everything that I typed below.

It is amazing how polarizing the end of this promo video is, for me. Not from the sense of Louis Farrakhan acknowledging the autrocities and mistreatment that the black community has been subjected to. But from the perspective of allowing the victim roll to pigeonholing your outlook, to always be that of a victim. It creates a glass ceiling in many ways. The black community have still not “caught up”, any other belief, in my view, is without unbiased analysis.

“The desire is good, but the reality is the total opposite.”

Unfortunately, if we allow our current reality to impact our future perspective, we have handicapped and limited where we can go and achieve, because we project too many perceived roadblocks.

I agree with Pooch.

Acknowledging the atrocities of history is one thing. It’s very important in trying to prevent those atrocities from occurring again.

However, what Farrakhan is saying here just reaffirms the same negativity and hate into the current reality.. which is EXTREMELY counterproductive.

“if we allow our current reality to impact our future perspective, we have handicapped and limited where we can go and achieve, because we project too many perceived roadblocks.”

I agree 100% with Pooch and thparadox. We as a people can only complain for so long. Acknowledgement of reality is healthy and essential yes. Using it as a description of what always will be, isn’t.
