    I thank God that I don't allow rappers to influence my life.

    Generations ...each generation of Black people, probably since forever in Africa but at least since emancipation from 1868 to 2013, had young Black men in the lime light of the community! Kanye is 36. Garvey was 26 when he started the UNIA in Jamaica. All through the 40s 50s and 60s were young Black men, some musicians and some actors and some activists, who had a message for the Black community and a desire for a certain Self Determined focus! Now today we see 3 youngmen prominent !; Will Smith, has a certain focus, Kanye has his, and Jay Z has his as well; but is it based on Self Determination or the Ideologies of those who have opressed and colonized African people for hundreds of years???

    Yes...

    New slaves/new masters...

    But why do you and others have an issue when anybody dares to bring up some of the second group look like us too?

    Also when it comes to the groupies etc. of gangsta rap:

    "I could've freed more slaves--if they knew they were slaves!"

    Harriet Tubman...
