the last part


until very recently they didnt recognize my humanity

let me heel the wounds from 400 years of institutionalized agony and dustruction first



sounds like somebody on bx i know
What wounds do Black Americans today have to heal from? last I checked a Black man is president, Jay Z and Oprah are worth a Kajillion dollars, Black students are given the same resources and and opportunities as White students.

sure, racism is still very alive and we must f!ght through it. However, to fall back on slavery and act as if somebody owes us something is wrong and lazy. Imagine if martin thought that way? Imagine is Malcolm thought that way? Where the fu*k would we be now?the fact that Lupe is on his high horse says alot about how far we have come as a society.

republicans are doing everything possible to keep minorities from voting. If our votes didn't matter, they wouldn't do this. Its funny how much Lupe has in common with our oppressors.......

It's Lupe's constitutional right to not vote... I have no problem with that... but if you don't vote you don't have the right to bi*ch about the state of affairs, either.
I disagree

to me, if youre out there voting, then you lose some of the right to bi*ch about the way things are. You perpetuate the same bullsh*t over and over just by voting to keep it all in place. Like if you know a guy is kinda slimy, but he's the lesser of two evils, how can you then turn around and bi*ch about how slimy the guy you elected is? You knew he was fu*ked up from the beginning and you put him into power

people would do themselves a lot more good in the long run if they were willing to withhold their vote and make these politicians really address their concerns

So are you trivializing the civil rights movements where Black people and women fought and sometimes died for sovereignty? You saying they died for nothing?

Wow, how easy is it for cats to talk sh*t now. I wonder if you'd be the type to march with Martin and f!ght with Malcolm..or if you'd be the type to stay home and complain about how nothing will ever change.

A man's heart is evident through his actions, not words......
They fought and died for our rights to vote cause blacks weren't allowed to vote....but because they fought for our rights to vote doesn't mean that our votes count/matter. We all have the right to vote, but like I said it doesn't mean that it counts....I think Michael Moore is speaking on votes counting more than us having the rights to vote...

And I like his music, but every time he opens his mouth somewhere other than a recording booth I just shake my head. He might be the most conflicted, confused man in the music industry. And he can spare the "400 years of pain and agony" nonsense; it's not like he suffered any of it personally. Those people suffered and overcame that pain and agony to give him the civil rights he is so cavalierly brushing off as beneath him.

He sounds like a faux revolutionary fool with all of his contradictory nonsense. But he can rap really well, so he's got that going for him, I guess...
Don't matter if you vote or not...sh*t is still gonna be the same, if not worse...And besides, we the people don't decide who becomes president, its the Electoral College...How is this country and the government supposed to be about the people if our votes don't count? How are we supposed to have "power" and "voice our opinion" when the Electoral College and elites SELECT the presidents?

I'm a Black professional who graduated from one of the toughest schools in NYC (Bryant High). I built my business learning from all of my experiences both good and bad. I used what I learned in school to apply towards my everyday worklife. To fall back on my color and/or history would've left me back in the hood.

Sure, sh*t might not be equal, but to say we should be angry and stagnant because of slavery? That's just retarded and lazy. Black Americans need to realize that we should be more like Jewish Americans. After the Holocaust, they got on their grind. While they live by the mantra "never forget", they don't use it as a crutch. same with the Koreans. Same with the Natives who hustled their way into the casino game.

There is no excuse for laziness

What I'm getting from your comment is that our Black ancestors died in vain. Is that correct? If so, I have no more words.

Where did I say that? I just said that blacks fought and died for our RIGHT TO VOTE AND RIGHTS in general because we weren't allowed to vote....and I said just because we have the RIGHT TO VOTE that doesn't mean that OUR VOTE COUNTS. I NEVER said our ancestors died in vain, NEVER said that blacks died and fought for nothing. Learn how to read and comprehend...

Out of all the relevant and intelligent things he spoke about in that post you go out your way to pick at him using the term n*gga?? Man if that aint a crab in the bucket house ****** mentality. How you gone call him out for being "self righteous black empowerment" (as if you know what that means) and you don't do sh*t for the people?

n*gga WAKE UP!!!! It's clear you DON'T GET IT
so any black person that chooses to exercise their right to vote is a house n*gga?

and its a crabs in the barrel mentality for me to call him out on saying n*gga?

I think you got it confused. I'm just calling lupe out for being a hypocrite

if he wants people to take his message in his music seriously, then he has to follow what he preaches

its funny how he criticizes chief keef for promoting violence in his music but lupe himself is promoting ignorance and misusing his influence

he calls for black people to stop saying n*gga in his song, but he on twitter acting ignorant as fu*k and calling black people "uppity black n*ggas" and being ignorant. he needs to be consistent

He kept it a thousand. Crazy seeing people hate on what he had to say because all of it is truth and from the heart...I know this because I feel the same way.

But, if you're not gonna vote, you need to be ready to move forward on some revolutionary type sh*t because if you don't, exercising you right not to vote is all for not.
