In a recent conversation someone was talking about how Queen Latifah used to be "conscious" and how she has "soldout". I pretty much maintained that she was just following the wave, you dont necessarily have to be profound to sing U-N-I-T-Y.

In a recent interview Farrakhan was commenting on when he was attacked in the media for being anti-semetic and he stated his reason for going "underground" and not talking to any media. He said he was working on building his roots so deep in the community that no matter how much the media will attack him in the future they wouldn't be able to phase him because he would not be a product of the media but of the community... what I got from that was, things done on the grassroots level, where you are affecting people where you live in progressive ways, outsides forces of manipulation will be less affective to the people in the community.
