    He's a Brother that was doing what he felt he had to do, could do, under his particular set of circumstances.

    Just like every other Brother does.

    Yet, there were other Brothers, under their own particular set of circumstances, who did much differently what they felt they had to do or could do.

    The point made , was to qestion the notion of "Black Folks Can Do No Wrong"
    ,, how can we progress as a people , like that?

    To say that pimps and drug dealing in our community is wrong, is that hating on Black folks?

    To say that corruption in politics, or preferential treatment to a neocon agenda, and the wealthy over the poor, hurts lives, is that hate?

    This was a post regarding values clarification.

    Will we be a race that feels "Anything Goes" as we go into 2010?
    and that no behavior should be called into question or put in check?

    For 8 years, rappers have looked up to "the Skull and Bones" men in Washington as the ultimate gangsters,
    even made a fashion statement out of that symbol of death and decay(spiderwebs)
