    Good evening, poster, and what you said/wrote/etc. is a good barometer for anybody who has the energy/patience/time/etc. to examine what others are putting out there...

    But also what was and is needed and wanted is for us to seek out a few folks who've already made the attempt(s)...

    I. e., some of award winning reporter's Gregory Kane's (sic) articles, a former Baltimore Sun reporter (who is now a freelance journalist), was and is one of those attempts/sources...

    Also never mind that he calls himself a black conservative, because the intelligent person also benefits from the wisdom etc. of many different coucillors...

    :fyi:

    In all due candor and honesty:

    At best, these comments tend to be general, and I was expecting more in the way of specifics, i. e., what artists etc. put out what some call 'conscious' or 'positive' hip hop, and what do you back your claims on, by the way of verifiable facts?

    What you know is just that:

    What my and other generations don't?

    That IS one of the sources of more than just misunderstandings etc., between me and yours...

    Holla holla...

    Thanks again!

    Take care...

    Later...

    Peace...
