Top Ten Things Barack Obama Must Do To Regain The Progressive Black Vote

Posted by dwalkerspeaking on

by Demetrius D. Walker Get out of Libya.  C’mon son… Going to Libya was a George Bush move.  We’re supposedly over there to protect their citizens from the big, bad, boogeyman that is Qaddafi (Gadhafi, Khaddafi, etc. depending on the media’s mood today).  Before Barack and the Frenchies started dropping million dollar bombs, Libyans enjoyed a pretty damn high standard of living. I mean free education, housing, healthcare, access to clean drinking water, a 78% literacy rate, and life expectancy of 70.2 years doesn’t sound too bad.  On the real, it sounds a lot better than Harlem, Compton, and Houston’s...

How We Should Celebrate The 4th

Posted by dangerousnegro on

Hey you with that BBQ in your hands...what are you doing?  Have you lost your natural mind...yes, yes you have.  I'm about to say some un-American sh*t so get ready.  When I'm done you can tell me to go back to Africa if I don't like it here, and I will reply, "First, I'm planning on it.  Second, unless you're Native American, go the **** back to where you came from too." Most non-white people don't celebrate white holidays the same as white people (and the 4th of July is definitely a white holiday since everyone else living in America...

Posted by dwalkerspeaking on

In the religious folklore that is Hip Hop, DJ Kool Herc is the Father, the author of Genesis.  Every time you nod your head, admire the rhythmic marriage of two disparate beats, kick a drunken freestyle, or watch your favorite athlete hit The Dougie after scoring, you have Clive Campbell to thank.  If Hip Hop made any sense, every culture junkie would adorn their home with a shiny, brass relief of the revolutionary DJ. Yet, despite Herc's legacy, Hip Hop has tragically failed its founding father. This week news spread of Kool Herc's unfortunate health condition.  As he painfully battles...

The Story of Queen Nzinga

Posted by dangerousnegro on

This is an excerpt from The Destruction of Black Civilization by Chancellor Williams (available here).  If you don't know a lot about African History and have only been taught Black history starting with slavery, you should definitely read this book. The setting for the story described in the excerpt is Angola around 1622.  The Portuguese were up to their usual nefarious business of rape, murder, and pillage, even against their own economic interest (slaves were worth more dead than alive, but the savages that they were, they couldn't help themselves and kept on with the mass murders). It had gotten...

Top 5 Dead or Alive

Posted by dwalkerspeaking on

Ever since Pac and Big died, we've heard emcees constantly attempt to include themselves on the "Top 5 Dead or Alive" rapper list.  Hip Hop fans have compared their personal Top 5 lists with those of their peers, debating about the merits and flaws on each others' bill.  While it's definitely been fun to participate in the Great Hip Hop debate, I've found it more exciting to broaden the "Top 5 Dead or Alive" discussion to encompass history's most revolutionary figures. Before I go any further let me define what I mean by "revolutionary."  To me, a revolutionary is someone...
