      Detroit Red and Malcolm X is two different people. We not dealin with potential here. we dealin with what was. and Pac wasnt revolutionary. He was, as he himself said, a nigga! Yes revolutionas or activist have been set up for crimes they didnt commit, but how many put thenselves in harms way by setting up the climate. Fred Hampton wasnt in a club whenb he got shot or at a damn casino. Sundiata Acoli wasnt bumpin and grindin with a sista on the dance floor while recieving oral sex. Assata SHakur and othere activist/revolutionaries or freedom fighters do not put themselves in position for any charges not related to acts of rebellion whether the charges are trumped or not.

      Like sista Nia said, this subject will not move us closer to liberation or any understanding. But i will become divisive i guarentee because of some of our younger brotha and sistas views on Tupac.

      So I end my opinion of him here. Tupac was a great poet/rapper as far as his lyrical skills and actor, the brotha was full of emotion as most of us who struggle in the bowels of north amerikkka....but that where his saga and contribution ends!

      Blackcellent closing arguments. All very good points.
      We are not citizens of amerikkka. We are victims of amerikkka.

      If we want to support rap artists who have the ear of the young generation, and who are truly forward thinking, with non-conflicting messages, who don't compromise on integrity, and whose lifestyles match their rhymes, let's promote the work of truly revolutionary, pro-black artists like:

      Paris
      Dead Prez
      Daara J
      Maj Toure
      Dalek

      and others who promote Pan-Afrikanism and stop-the-violence.
      Very wise indeed.

      I agree with you Kefentse_Bandele, Nia Maishani and all others that made their comments I was possing a thought that came accross my mind during the watch of the film his mother made about him. It was intersting to see what any one of us or any one for that matter can do if they speak to a group that usually doesn't listen to what is said unless it is put to a beat.
