don't apologize to that angiee chick, maybe to simon cuz I hear that he is a little kid and children don't know any better. But homegirl don't deserve no apology! Yeah maybe you shouldn't have cursed her out, but the sentiment was justified in my opinion. that's my word!

Ahmir, There is no reason you shoul be apologizing to us. If you wouldn't have done it, someone else was and you know it! Let it out!! Go ahead and let 'em know how you feel. Ignorance can never stop determination.

I really don't understand you sometimes ?uest. why do you even give a shit about okayplayers. Thought doesn't gove a shit about a swedish 8th grader who posts the same thing all the time. Malik could care less if any one on here eays anything about him, good or bad.
Why do you, a person who comes here Knowing that there are over 300,000 people who come here every day because they love your work, let a couple of assholes affect you, and then feel guilty abut telling them what you feel and what they need to hear. Fuck'em
Don't get me wrong, I myself am one of the many okayplayers that has experienced your generousity and all around cool vibes, I am very thank full for that. I'm not suggesting in any way that you change the way you are or the way you treat your fellow players. Just trying to show you a diffrent way of seeing it.
and to all those assholes in question: call me a rider, I could give a shit

What other forum is there online like this? Where the artists care enough to thank fans for their support and actually interact by answering questions. Artists that care about the music, and put in hard work to bring us what they feel is good product.
If you feel its boring then youre entitloed to your opinion but is this really how you feel or is it a cry for attention? I have minor minor gripes with my 6 roots cds, so small they arent even worth mention.
Seriously some people post because they know they'll get a response.
If this was your 1ST day here, didnt know jack ish about okayplayer then I could see somebody posting something with the name angie and not knowing who she was. BUT MORE THAN ONE E?? (yes Im still on that) come on change your name please, thats so wack of you. As for simon, you try n your intentions seem good, but who wants to hear criticism from a 14 year old?
?uest feel free to get to cussin if people really get you riled up. They probly aint shit anyway.

?uest, you did the noble thing. I honor and respect you for that. Your apology is just you doing something that you think is right, I can dig it. My mother used tomake me do the same thing...and you know what, it wouldn't even be my fault allot of the time. As in this time, it isn't yours. Your a human being, that only take so much abuse. This females has popped on the scene in her own bad karma. You can't spread karma, it surrounds you, she'll learn that sooner or later. I know you'll probably or hopefully let this "female" and her words roll off your back. She's weak and wack-a-licious.
You too Thought. Dammit. Getting momma's nerves all bad.
that is all.
The brutal truth is that the bulk of white people in America never had any interest in educating black people, except as this could serve white purposes. It is not the black child's language that is in question, it is not his language that is despised: It is his experience. A child cannot be taught by anyone who despises him, and a child cannot afford to be fooled. A child cannot be taught by anyone whose demand, essentially, is that the child repudiate his experience, and all that gives him sustenance, and enter a limbo in which he will no longer be black, and in which he knows that he can never become white. Black people have lost too black children that way. (James Baldwin)
