- with ignorance. look @ what MTV does, they show BULLSHIT all day but they have commercials/programs on there that educate their dumbass bubble gum viewers. BET is gonna have to do that. start out a little 45 second spot with jiggling asses and 50 cent, then have a voiceover come on and talk about nat turner. keep the music going underneath the narrator while showing snips of nat turner, at the end of the piece go back to 50 and the shaking asses. as stupid and silly as that sounds, THAT is the only way we are going to educate our people.

- actually if you get to the bare root of it: the only shakur that is relevant is 2pac and the NAACP doesn't do SHIT. maybe local branches of the NAACP are but nationally? nada.
