Given my last blog and props to T.I.’s latest artist of promise that is Iggy, I felt the need for a follow-up due to Forbes’ blatant pop-cultural faux pas. A writer, whose name won’t be mentioned, recently put his foot in his mouth and felt a need to retract and apologize. Forbes is a financial publication, not XXL or an authority on pop-culture, and certainly not hip-hop.
Some television shows celebrate their 200th episode. Generally T-V programs will review and/ or reflect on shows past, when celebrating the 200th show. That’s very appropriate for television, and I suppose I could touch on a few of my favorite blogs over the past five years, but I believe speaking on public figures that are anti-FUNK or just plain FUNKED UP may be more intriguing.
How we live, as well as history, shows that we as a people have made tremendous strides. What’s incredible and extremely unfortunate, is that with all our “progress”, so many things are still the same. I was watching Bill Moyer on PBS, and he sited an excerpt of a speech by Martin Luther King. It’s uncanny how we’ve moved forward, but not nearly enough, and in some instances not at all.
