    Peace and Blessings Family,

    This video ... http://www.mtv.com/overdrive/?id=1545981&vid=120279 ... features Jay-Z's visit to Angola, and shows how terrible our people are living there. It gives me a new found respect for Jay-Z, as i could feel his dismay, as he walked (for just a few minutes) in this little girl's shoes.

    It's a 3 video series (all short), that will automatically move on to the next one.

    Check it out.

    :heart:

    With all due respect Destee. I do not trust Jay Z. I do not trust the video. I couldnt hear the sound in the video because of the computer I am using but no matter how good they make it looks he works for the devil. I did not see in the video anything that was inhuman they were experiencing by the way. Is his ordinary life righteous for us now that he has walked with a girl in Africa and showed it to the world.

    diary of jay-z...

    i have to agree,africa is the hip place for the moment,actresses adoping black babies,talk show host opening schools,so why shouldn't jay-z go over there and get his[african minute]too,these folks don't really care about the plight it's the[hip]thing that matters to them[yes i could be wrong],have you ever seen a tv commercial with an actor or actress pushing a product[like they use it]same philosophy.

    Brother Afru Shukuwr ... what do you mean, he works for the devil?

    Who in this country doesn't work for the devil?

    Brother Oldiesman ... it's good to see you sharing more serious thoughts in the discussions.

    When you say ... these folks don't really care about the plight ... can you name some folk who do really care?

    What evidence do you use, to tell the difference between those that really care, and those that don't?

    :heart:

    When I say work I dont mean as in a class job or paycheck job.
    I mean his spirit is of a devil. His spirit will is strong. His doings he can not partly help. He can not control his soul because it is taken over. This disagreeable spirit does not control him as its not his fault. I like to say he is the spirit because at once in his life he made that choice and deglected his soul and holier spirit for materialism or whatever.
