yeah, i have to agree that in fact this is one way i definitely think it is the case and also how he describes certain phenomenon, dude's name in Tom by the way.
i think that commerical culture is huge and it didnt used to be in black culture. it has to do with some increasing affluence, but that cant be the only thing can it? what do you all think?
plus, history is decreasingly important to black folks, they are getting the same short term memories as white where 30 minutes ago might as well be 30 years and the events of neither period are significantly valued. Commercialism as a stand in for culture has an immense deal to do with this too I think.
There are a bunch of other things too and I am sure MANY more I havent even considered, so keep em coming...
And you will know MY JACKET IS GOLD when I lay my vengeance upon thee.
