Dear Naturally:
i am glad to see you appreciate historical contexts. so answer me this...why is the confederate flag being "erased"? that is part of history, both white and black, yet it is found to be so offensive that is now a racial stigma!  why why why? just as much as "hip hop" is a culture/heritage, so is the confederate flag!  As a matter of fact, correct me if i am wrong, if we use this logic on retiring flags because it was used by "offensive groups", shouldn't the American Flag be retired because the KKK flies it everywhere? Also, you never responded to my Al Sharpton query.

Additionally, the rappers are being permitted to say anything they want, via free speech. the rapper/producer "russel simmons" on anderson cooper said its ok for the rappers to say anything because "its true and its how they feel and its what really happen" (that is a paraphrased quote by the way) so why can't everyone else?  and for you to even mention the psuedo fact that most rap is being sponsored by white suburban kids is such a cop out!  the music is created by mostly blacks is an undeniable fact.  just because you saw some BS on tv saying that its supported by white kids in the burbs doesn't take anything away from the producers. 
your turn!

Dear Naturally....

Gasp...Colored people eh?  I think that is an ignorant label and please disect your argument in such a fashion that you do not simply return a question to my side of the table...

What i am trying to understand is why:
the rapper "timbaland" can use the "gasp" N- word "I'm just that pimp n-word from Va. Beach Rrrrob each, uh, let me not slur my speech"  in a song without reprecussion
i can write a book about rappers and their lyrics...biggie smalls in "juicy"- "and if you dont know, now you know, n-word"
WHY IS THIS OK?

Al sharpton can call the former mayor of NY (david dinkins)a "gasp" "n-word whore" and, most significantly, defend this action by saying "well, i apologized, i was wrong." but not as wrong as don imus who didnt even say the n word or anything close to it???
And what about the white girls on the rutgers team?

why is calling black people "colored" or "negroes" is taboo, yet there are organizations that foster these labels, so just curious, why can't everyone refer to them as this?

OK natural...i am not bashing you, i am seriously curious on your take of these issues and how you relate to them.  i dont want a race war, just some level headed understanding!
it is in my sole biased opinion that the term "colored people" is highly offensive...or am i wrong to think this?

it may have been said, but i didnt check through the 17 pages...but this country is nothing now but DE FACTO segregation...correct?  i mean, even in my college, all the blacks hung out together.  i believe they take it a step further with the united negro college fund (also, its funny how i cant call blacks negro even though they call themselves that when it comes to getting money for college)

anyways...thats my rant.

i totally agree with the BS curve.  however, i am going to school- im in it to win it.  The problems im having are more personal like, im miserable in charleston SC and i have a dead end job making peanuts, the job market is terrible and waiting a year just means prolonging my law practice, and my "real job" and "real money" if this makes sense. 

and yes i have more "control" now but does it really matter where i go?  from what i hear its "no, as long as its accredited and as long as you perform well"

yay or nay/
