-action for the sake of inaction!? uhmmm what the FUCK are you talken about...and im sure somebody "sat down" and decided to boycott NELLY.

- no teeth because you all are ignorant...lets flip it: lets say a BLACK writer wrote up an article that was being critical of "presidents day" (after all, that one article at this college would not stop black history month it was just his opinion) and then all the right wing conservatives on campus decided to organize a "boycott"...first of all do u see how rediculous it is lookin @ it from the other sidE? and secondly, how far would their "boycott" go knowing full well that mans article in the paper is protected by the 1st amendment...

>to me it seems like u are COOL with

>No, maybe you didn't read what I said. I have NO problem
>with that. Did you read what I said?

-yeah i read what u said, and you dont agree with the METHODS they went about boycotting nelly...hell, i would have liked to see them LET nelly perform, and THEN slice that nigga up when he got offstage and stab a knife through his chest with a note attached to it "TIP DRILL"...

>Fuck it. Responding is pointless. You are just str8 running
>off at the mouth about some bullshit. You obviously didn't
>read what I said or at least comprehend.

>Either that, or you are crazy...perhaps stupid.

-HAHAHAAA!!! this nigga. after reading that 3 paragraph long explenation of your failed attempt at being a wanna be revolutionary/dr king, i can now see the root of where your beef lies with this "boycott": IT WAS SUCCESSFULL!! did nelly perform? nope. did spelmans way of doing things work? yup. did yours? nope. OOPS!
