    When you look at this photo with an un-cultured, non-learned mindset you think faggotry. When you look at it from an african mindset you recognize it for what it is and think nothing of it.

    These days it is very hard to summon the mental energy to post rebuttals to the nonsense that I read.

    Good discussion to open up dialog on "African" culture and familiar clothing/material.

    Not really sure who is angry over there about it, does look like a variation of the Kente robes men typical are adorning.

    Now living in Cape Town, South Africa, he was asked "Where’s your skirt from?" Bey responded, "It’s a wrap from Ghana" adding it is "what I’m comfortable in at home."

    "Yasiin Bey" moved to Cape Town last May and has stated he plans to remain there. He recently spoke as the keynote speaker at the city’s Music Exchange Conference.


    "There are some beautiful places in America. I love Brooklyn. New York City needs to thank Brooklyn every day just for existing," stated Bey. "That’s how I feel about it. It was a hard thing to leave home. But I’m glad I did."



    I do realize the Music Industrial Complex wiped all of his enthusiasm when they shut him down and blacklisted his material.

    The mind has to be prepared to make this move, and "America" can condition many into doing so without much hesitation.
