Truth, I wouldn't rock w/ land grants because no matter what, the government still owns the land so they have control over how they can screw u.

Sucks that we'll never get reparations. If only we were Irish, Japanese, etc.

All that sounds fine and dandy, my only problem is if anything like that ever happens, white will not want to hear ANYTHING about slavery/Jim Crow, etc.

Nobody cares what what people think. The ones who have issues with African Americans getting paid back from slavery lack logic.

They need to forgive my student loans. I'd be happy with that.

Lol.

You say that because that's the music you grew up in. I wouldn't register for such a course for the same reason, but it's important for our art to transition from its original setting to academia in order for it to survive beyond the generation that made it popular. At least the kids will know there's more to hip hop than screaming a bunch of adlibs in a microphone for 5 min.

I dont want to hear anyone who took that class complaining about not finding a job at graduation. This class aint for black people because this is what we grew up with and is our culture. Black people should be concerned woth gaining skills to compete gloablly, this def aint it.

 College Electives. Not all of the classes you choose will be based on a set list that will fulfill the requirements of your major. Part of the fun of college (and we hope you'll agree) is having some flexibility in choosing college classes you're interested in.

I'll watch the Nat Turner movie when it comes out but other than that I'm good. Hidden Colors series is way better than these same ol stories.

me and my fiancee have been watching it...she is enjoying it...i see where you are coming from though...but kunta

Awesome piece

I especially like the way he's going about being a parent. I try to emulate the same style when it comes to my daughter and so far it's working

Firm, disciplined, demander of respect, but also loving and caring at the same time.

Raising a black girl in today's society is the scariest thing in the world to me but so far I'm doing it successfully and it's easily the greatest thing I've ever done.

How many black people in their 20's/30's can tell you anything about the blues? Without people documenting, storing, and studying it, imagine how many artists and genres created by us could be forgotten or even claimed by others. As a fellow African, you should be familiar with the amount of people who deny the very existence and/or sophistication of african cultures because of our own propensity to rely on oral transmission of our knowledge rather than documenting our ways. Were it not for hieroglyphics, who knows what would be said about ancient egyptian civilization today?

ain't none of that gonna save us right now. You're free to worry about that kind of stuff if you want though. Like I said, my opinion is it is foolish to go into debt going to college for stuff like that in this day and age especially being black as you don't have the luxury of graduating and then having someone pay your bills and stuff.

Always thought E-40 was trash but ALWAYS respected him as a business man. Damn Shame black folks from the South and West Coast followed NYC acts by selling their souls to record labels.

Both of yall make great points, but there isnt an either or to this. While it is important to make the most of opportunities to gain an economic advantage, it's still unwise to neglect history and culture as they play major parts not only in the lives of everyday people, but they comprise parts of a person's identity.

 

It was the theft and degrading of African history and culture that encouraged European enslavement and disfranchisement of Africans in the first place. Without that component, we don't get scholars like Dubois, Carter G Woodson, John Hope Franklin etc. And if people like that don't come along, then we don't see the Harlem Renaissance, The civil rights movement, Malcolm X,The Black Panthers, the Black Power movement, and the Black Studies Movement to legitimize African history as a serious curriculum. All of these aspects of scholarship and activist work are vitally important in how we view culture, how we view blackness, and he we view ourselves.
