$16 Billion Down the Drain

Posted by dangerousnegro on

by Dr. Jawanza Kunjufu This summer and throughout the year our largest 150 African American organizations will convene their national conferences. They include the NAACP, Urban League, Operation Push, National Baptist, Omegas, Alphas, Kappas, Sigmas, Deltas, AKAs, Sigma Gamma Rho, and many more. I am honored that I will be speaking at many of them. My only regret is that we will spend $16 billion with Mr. Hyatt, Hilton, Marriott, United ,American, Delta, etc. Can you imagine how much money we have spent with them since 1954? What do we have to show for it? At many of these conferences,...

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...

Posted by dwalkerspeaking on

If you're a member of the Hip Hop Generation, three relentless fires have burned in your debate circle for the past two decades: the n-word, saggy pants, and ignorant ass rappers. For sure, you've been unable to escape the controversies surrounding these topics.  Hours have been spent in heated arguments defending or deriding the virtues of each; verbal fisticuffs have led to intellectual brawls and oral shellackings.  Chances are, if you're reading this blog you're sick and tired of having these discussions.  Despite your mental exhaustion over these matters, they seem to make for persistent conversation with no end game...

Haiti and Apocalyptic Politics

Posted by dwalkerspeaking on

by Demetrius D. Walker Yesterday I prayed feverishly for my friends, as they sought confirmation that their family members survived the massive 7.0 earthquake that leveled Haiti.  My only frame of reference for their hearts’ panic was the day the Twin Towers fell; a day in which my mother watched them crumble out of her 30th Floor window in Midtown, while frantically asking me what to expect next over the phone.  I’ll never forget sitting in my Vanderbilt dorm room, watching that declaration of war, and not knowing whether my mother would make it home to the Bronx.  Truly an...

FREE DOWNLOAD! The RE-education By REO The Emcee

Posted by dwalkerspeaking on

dangerousNEGRO Prez, Sebastine, introduced me to Reo Pagan back in 2007.  They went to grad school together at Purdue, so it was only fitting for Sebastine to acclimate Reo to his new digs in H-Town.  That meant bringing him into our circle of dangerousNEGROes.  As I grew to know Reo, we connected as Hip Hop connoisseurs.  Due to the overwhelming number of Negroes that purport to have rap as a talent, I was skeptical when Reo told me he had mic skills.  However, the moment I popped his '08 D.O.E Records debut CD into my ride I felt like a...
