    At 8:30 est time. Lets see what they have to say. Will they come out with solutions or just verbally recognize our problems? I put little faith in these leaders but at least they are a little entertaining at times. Especially Cornell West with the ghetto Einstein afro.

    He's a smart bro but he looks like he sleeps on 1 side only with his hand plugged into a socket.

    I had the opportunity to meet him when I was in Saint Louis - I thought he was a good brotha with a potential of becoming a prominent voice in our community but he has to be able to speak to those who do not understand half of the words he uses.

    As far as his hair is concerned - I love it and it shows his own individuality.

    Peace

    I actually dig great minds that care little about the appearance that we THINK we see.

    anyone can be ignorant enough to judge from the outer, but ask this cat a question, and look out!, he will most likely school anyone and I'd say a great amount of well known intellectuals...big up to those who step outside of the box..


    I highly respect the Brother too...

    In the Spirit of Sankofa and Real Truth!




    From my prespective, this event backfired and rained on Tavis' intended parade.

    I don't dislike or hate Tavis, but in all honesty I don't know how in the .... he became an overnight success, with a daily TV show and radio show on PBS(that now has commercials?!?)
