>1)Are Black artists obligated to a >Black movement or a Human >movement?
Well they shouldn't be, but often times we shame them into it. You can't do it for you, you end up doing it for us. It is part of the group psychology that affects us all. So when Tiger wood's does well, we praise him. When some random black person murders someone, we feel that too.
>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.
No. We, the hip hop generation, need to get our own horse and carriage. Let them handle what they know best.
>3)Was Saul wrong?(Based on the limited >info i gave you)
>4)Is it wrong to point out >the mistakes of the elders?
No, even if you are disrespecting them. They have too much power over our minds anyway. We can learn from them, but I've met too many elders that said desegregation came too early.
>5)How can Hip-Hop generation continue to >make progressive change?
We can assess our problems and solutions, and pursue them.
