29. "RE: Elders, Youth, Saul Williams and Black Revolution"
In response to In response to 0


  

          

what I don't hear from Saul, based on what you've presented, is a solution for the problems we currently face. for example, take the issue of the disproportionately low number of minority owners of broadcast properties, as a random example. how does saul's "we're all human" philosophy deal with that?

and Saul's statement about organizing yourself first before organizing others doesn't really fit the pattern of the history of any political organization...I mean, does he think that Thomas Jefferson went through some soul-searching to be sure he was a perfect person before him and the boys started arguing on how the Constitution should be written? Eh, there are no perfect people. If you wait for people to attempt to fix all their flaws before they organize, there would never be any organizations. In that respect, I think Saul is dead wrong.

Thoughtfully yours,

Spirit

Check out my hip-hop brethren In Shallah
(Arabic for "God's will"); b-boy
conscious soul music for the world to
uprock to...

Imagine if Aceyalone was the
frontman for The Doors and you have
Miscellaneous Flux. Their four song
debut EP is on sale now. Want to hear an
MP3 to taste a sample? E-mail

(I said Ghostface before, but I think
Aceyalone is a better comparison...maybe
the delivery of Ghost and the lyrics of
Acey...ah, hell, just listen)

"the world may seem to cause you pain.
and yet the world, as causeless, has no
power to cause. as an effect, it cannot
make effects. as an illusion, it is what
you wish" denis johnson, "already dead"




Peace,
