How is black and black a mix? I'm not light skinned, we have done a family history. My family history ties all the way back to African. Supposedly no mixtures or anything, thus I'm really dark. It shouldn't matter anyway, I understand where they are coming from, but I don't agree with them 100% of the time.

Remember, this is all just opinions, you don't have to take any of what anyone says seriously ;)

First question, what he hell is a "mugu"?

Secondly, hip-hop in general is becoming white, in terms of who is supporting it. Go to any undergound artist's show and there will be mad white people there, this is a fact. Secondly, I could drop an album called "Kill Whitey" and they would still buy my album. Its a fact.

Thirdly, why would I go to a show of an artist that I don't like? Doesn't make sense to me.

At least we agree on one point. So what if I do or don't like Dead Prez.
So why are you here telling lies? Just because some white boy told you they are racist doesn’t mean they are. Stop making up things, listen to the album or STFU.

Man, this whole argument went to sh*t in a hurry. I would like to see some lyrical proof that Dead Prez are "racist," because I suspect many people do not have an understanding of what racism is. The very fact that Dead Prez are not signed and are a marginal voice in a marginal community means that by definition that they cannot be racist, because essentially they are powerless. Now, that being said, even if people want to argue that they are racially prejudiced, I still would like to see some strong evidence of this.

I agree 100% with you. Thats what I've been trying to tell dude, but he doesn't want to listen to reason. In his mind I'm a "house n*gga" just because I don't worship the ground that Dead Prez walks on. sh*t is weak as hell.

Remember, I never called them racist ;), and I don't think they are. I just don't agree with this.

Would you be ready for civil war/Could you take the life of somebody you know/or have feelings for if necessary?/I got cousins in the military/but far as i'm concerned they died when they registered

For me, blood is blood, I won't disown someone if they are in the military, even if I hate them. I just don't feel this line.

lol white people hate to hear DP tell the truth but love to hear song were blacks are k*lling each other. They want to hear us call each other n*ggas and hear us call our women hoes. But if a rapper talks about how the systems is then they hate it.

^I dont think you realize how much white people does support their music. Rather they disagree or not. Go to one of their shows, you still got loads of white people in the crowd.

you're an exception though. if someone drops a cd telling you that basically your race is the cause of most of there problems, even if it's the truth, you're not gonna want to hear it. dead prez can go a little overboard sometimes, btu they generally spit the truth and alot of it is harsh realities, so feelings are going to get hurt. it just comes with the territory. and as much as people complain about other artists making club hits, how are you gonna knock other artists for expanding their mass appeal? you've got your deep, thoughtful music, your chill out music, your get crunk music, your dancing music, your boo loving music, etc. i'm not gonna be in the club dancing to immortal's Peruvian cocaine, or fu*king my girl listening to dead prez's Walk Like A Warrior(then again, maybe) but the point is that there market is very small and they are a hard sell. i think they should get their exposure and have there shot at success liek everyone else, but i can understand why they're not signed by a major

I agree that they are an important group but I think that the problem with them getting their message across sucessfully is that their music ain't all that dope! Public Enemy were sucessful because they had beats and rhymes too ill to ignore. Dead Prez are average MC's with lackluster production!
damnit if he aint speaking the truth. their production is usually god awful, and they aren't the nicest MCs. that's why at least among the white people i know, Mos Def and Talib Kweli, and Immortal Technique are more popular(yeah the white people that i do a*sociate with keep it hood. my Philly white boys, and girls STAND UP!).and yeah, i am black btw

How is this real talk? Theres no proven fact behind this besides a speculation. After all, if you do believe thats the truth, then its not white peoples fault that black rappers are making those type of songs.

lol whites always saying truth is speculation. Anyway you try to speak against it. Everybody know that's what sell(black on black crime). It's why Dead Prez isnt selling. That's not speculation that's fact. Plus your jumping off subject, I never said it's whites fault. You just speculated that. But believe whites do influence what's being marketed due to fact they are the number one CONSUMERS of hip hop music. I just stating what's real,

THE FACT IS IN RECORD SALES
