>1)Are Black artists obligated to a >Black movement or a Human >movement?
i don't believe you can make anyone feel an obligation. if an individual DOES not feel obligated, then those who do have to simply continue the fight without them
>2)Should the Elders step out of >leadership positions they've been holding >since the 60-70's and let >younger blood with new ideas >take riegns.
not necessarily "step down/out" but they do need to understand theat new times call for new ideas and be open to hearing them. "younger blood", in turn, should respect, but not deify, the leadership provided by elders. in cases where ideologies diverge, being a bucket crab isn't going to make things better. we don't have to share the same methods to reach the same goal
>3)Was Saul wrong?(Based on the limited >info i gave you)
seemed to just be sharing is view. it may not have been smart to say (in light of the audience), but he's still entitled. as i'm sure he knows, when you share an unpopular idea you gotta be prepared to take a certai amount of heat.
>4)Is it wrong to point out >the mistakes of the elders?
no. but one should still (i believe) not cross the line into disrespect.
