oh boy...here we go again.....EVERY DAY...TUPAC WAS A "REVOLUTIONARY"...not hardly...maybe in the music biz... Tupac was a rapper...a entertainer. A good one, I agree. Not the best in the game in my opinion, but he was great. I just draw the line when people say he was a "revolutionary" and a "activist"....tell me, what revolutionary acts did he perform? 1. Did he sponsor marches, did he open health clinics in black neighborhoods? No, he just sang about it. 2. What grass roots organization did Tupac Shakur start? His mother now started one, but Pac never did..... 3. Did he stand outside the schools, making sure black children got breakfast? No...he just sang about it..... 4. Did he walk the streets of LA with a rifle, to ensure black people were not brutalized by the police? Absolutely not.....he just sang about it. He even said it himself..."I make records...People think this is my real life...I just make records." You get so tired of this same comment "he was a revolutionary/activist with Panther roots"....Yea, promoting "thug life"....degrading/raping black women....drug use.....tales of drug sales....threats of killing other black men....that aint hardly ''REVOLUTIONARY'' I dont think the Panthers would want anything to do with Tupac. Folks, he was a entertainer, nothing more or less....I hardly think a REVOLUTIONARY would be "ridin or dyin" for some drug revenge scenario.....even dealing with a criminal like Shug Knight......or stomping another black man at a hotel lobby....which may have lead to his untimely death. Stokely Carmicheal, Assata Shakur (no relation) Malcom, Martin Luther King, Medgar Evans, Angela Davis, SNCC, the Panthers were REVOLUTIONARIES....People who died or suffered in the causes of black people. Not self-centered, millionaire recording artists. Tupac was a ENTERTAINER, concerned only with record sales. Nothing more, nothing less.....I aint got a problem with Tupac,,,excellent poet, great entertainer, but a revolutionary and activist, he was not....and I think this comment degrades and disrespects the true revolutionaries and activists in our communities who do the work, and even die out of the love of black people. I get so tired of these peeps tellin me "Tupac was a revolutionary-activist.."....I just didnt see it.... These kids got to be clear and defined when they use those words (revolutionary, activists) around certain people.
