What the fuck man? This should be in the Politics boards, but I’ll comment. The images that are there slapping you in the face takes a way from concentrating on the lyrics. I have seen most of these clips and throwing them together in 1second intervals just makes it a propaganda flick. Yes we black folks have some fucked up shit happen to us over the last couple hundred years, but what does 9/11 have to do with our struggle?

i’ll post my thoughts on the actual clip at the moment, but there was a discussion in the nas thread about soulja boi killing hip hop, i believe this song pretty much rejects that idea and it reminds me of public enemy song

The video isn’t just about black people’s struggle. It’s about the hypocrisies of our government. Putting the pressure on them is just another way of saying “get answers” by means of force.
