    when conducting business

    on an official level

    i say yes

    just to wear one i say no

    i like my neck open

    i go to funerals casual too.

    because LOVE is in the heart

    and when you all come to my funeral

    you will think it's a club because i want a party thrown

    it is alot deeper than just 'looking the par'...people where the outfits that the people in power will wear in hopes of one day being like them....which puts an end to the 'professional look' myth because if I have all or most of the power and wear a dashiki, or a Tupac shirt,etc than I look professional no matter what because it is the power that people will identify with and not the clothing...today it just so happens that big businessmen where suits and ties...so everyone else will in hopes of being like them and their illusory power.

    even vusamazulu mutwa claimed that some afrikans dyed their hair red after being taken over in hopes of one day replacing the conquerers

    so when people say 'get grown and sexy' they do not mean you have to dress like that (suits,etc) but you have to create/find a comfortable style/vibration/radiation in your entire being that will turn heads that complement it.

    you can also use it as camoflauge to infiltrate big business and make some real change.


    that should make more sense of it,na'mean.
