i feel you k_orr said about role models. especially musically like Bounty Killer in Jamaica with his songs like "Fed Up", "Anytime", "can't Beleive My Eyes", or Fela in Nigeria. These people are role models to me as an African-American. Why aren't there any role models besides entertainers in U.S.A.?
why doesn't Dr. Ben Carson get much love just as Jay-Z?
