      THE RAMEY COMMENTARIES By Mike Ramey

      THE RAMEY COMMENTARIES: THE ALICIA KEYS SHUFFLE
      By Mike Ramey

      High profile person makes comment; gets call from the
      string pullers that his/her comments are bad for
      business; high profile person recants or says that
      they mispoke, even though their comments are on tape,
      video, AND DVD!

      It's nice to know that the formula doesn't change.

      MSNBC reported on its website that Alicia Keys is now
      denying (backing away from, recanting) that she didn't
      say what she said in her Blender magazine interview
      about Gangsta Rap. According to an AP story, a
      spokesperson for Blender Magazine is standing by their
      story.

      Now, I'm not one to get excited. Somehow, someone at
      the gatekeeper's desk let the truth 'slip out' in
      order to boost, a) Keys' sales, and; b) the genre of
      Gangsta Rap, which has been slipping in sales for the
      last FIVE years, even though the 'big name playahs' of
      both the male and female ranks have been still making
      money by diversification of their business portfolios.
      Meanwhile, those who have been dying on the streets
      as a result of those who have been 'fueled' by the
      rage of Gangsta Rap, are still dead, and Black men and
      women are--through the miracle of techonology--EAGERLY
      disrespecting one another...for the sake of a buck.

      Let this be a clear lesson for media watchers and
      those who want to be famous, regardless of what venue
      you wish to conquer. Unless you have some of your own
      intestinal fortitutde, your decisions, comments, or
      even political office are going to be 'monitored' by
      the blowing of the wind against your moistened index
      finger.

      Disappointed? Not really. I was wondering when the
      truth about 'her truth' would be coming out. With the
      music industry in a slump thanks to downloading and
      other 'tech toys' and a sour economy, the cash
      registers are starting to come up dry. The powers
      that be snuffed out her 'militant' streak when their
      profits were in danger. Just like in the Book of Acts
      when the Apostle Paul cast the demon out of the girl
      who could tell fortunes, her 'handlers'--the folk who
      made money off this young woman soothsayer--demanded
      financial justice...even IF the truth were made
      public. Paul had to be locked up, because he ruined
      their cash flow.

      The same is still true today.

      Thus, Alicia Keys 'may' have told the truth about
      Gangsta Rap, but the high priests of the music
      industry ordered the matter closed. Maybe she
      'mispoke', but by recanting...nobody will be set
      free--because of the money. Expect her sales to
      suffer as well in the long term.

      Sometimes, it doesn't hurt to be a 'Conspiracy
      Theorist'. After all, they usually manage to outlive
      the conspiracy, through the grace of God and through
      keeping an eye on history so as to learn from it, and
      not repeat it.
      You are here because you know something,what you
      know you can't explain,but you feel it.You've felt it
      your entire life; that theres something wrong with the
      world.You don't know what it is but it's there; a
      splinter in your mind... the matrix

      Alicia Keys' Hip Hop Conspiracy


      0 Not allowed! Not allowed!
      I am afraid that Alicia Keys statement and the theory behind it highlights the schizophrenic nature of the black mind today. Even Min. Paul Scott's article reveals this schizophrenic nature.

      Here are some examples.

      On the one hand we want to defend Hip Hop and praise it as the truest expression of blackness, even by hailing "The Last Poets" as the true progenitors of the art form. We teach classes at universities on Hip Hop and the evolution.Then we turn around and say it was a fiendishly evil plot injected into the hood by white "black ops."

      Somebody had better tell Michael Eric Dyson about this cause he has made millions as the hip hop pastor. Does this make him, P Diddy and some others music moguls or a new evolved form of Uncle Tom?

      Which is it?

      Further if Tupac & "Biggie" were used by "The Man" then why did the man off them? Again we cannot make up our minds.

      People, we need to make up our minds. What is it going to be, pride and honesty in our culture blemishes and all, or a constant insecurity.

      Degenerate forms of music, if that is what we wish to call them, whether "Death Metal" in the white community, or "Gangsta Rap" in our own, usually just evolve on their own. They come and they go, they evolve into new forms, why try to make them more or less than they are.

      I think Alicia needs to stick to what she is great at- singing, and leave the social critique to others.

      BOOOOooooooooOOOOOOOO!!!

      He's mixing a number of unrelated things into one.

      What is amazing to me about black people is that we pick and choose the things white people are responsible for.

      I learned from my elder that anything is possible when the white man or woman is involved. One of his favorite lines was "It would not surprise me."

      The "man" may of had nothing to do with the murders of Tupac and Biggie. The fact of the matter is if they were white, their murderers would have been caught. I give "the man" a lot of benefit when it comes to being deceitful, manipulative, diabolical, sinister, and all gangstas.

      I'm like Chris Rock. "The President did it." I don't SHIT past past "the man." Like right now, my brakes are starting to squeak. I think "the man"is responsible. You get my drift though.

      This doesn't cause me to be paranoid but aware of the society I live in. It keeps me on my toes, because she let's be truthful we are black people...
      can we ever be too schizophrenic?

      Frankly, I'm tired of black people forgetting about all of the conspiracies, plots, and master plans put into place to destroy our people.

      Wasn't there a thread about all of the conspiracies against people of color posted here? The sad thing that was just the tip of the pin.
      Peace!
