I dont know who this "they" is. I've been to Africa lots. I've always been treating like a long lost brother.

I'm not down with everyone worrying about their own issue. Many of our problems have the same root cause. There is shit talking on all sides. There are also bridge builders on all sides. I'm a bridge builder. Pan African unity is the best response.

I can recall the beginnings of hip hop. And I know something about the west African roots of the craft (djeli/griot). I wouldnt call it "brainwashing," but it is definitely an outcome of living in a hyper-individualistic society.

That's a stereotype. We are no more arrogant or hypocritical than any other group.

We will never give up. There is "chaos" throughout Global Africa.

"Life isn't binary" is something they teach in college. I don't think it is very useful or accurate here. Nor am I making a point about who "deserves accolades." I am seeking clarity on artistry from an African-centered point of view.

Ciham Ali Abdu 15 yr old daughter of Ali Abdu, who rose from PIAs personal errand boy during |n liberation war to Minister of Information in 2003. A reward for his utmost loyalty to - & insidious defaming critics of - Isias Afewerki before they were made to disappear.

All three of the town halls are here: Halifax - Vancouver - Montreal - Producing these shows was equally tough and rewarding. Met some folks on the road I'll never forget.

"[Field Negroes] lived in huts, had nothing to lose. They wore the worst kind of clothes. They ate the worst food. And they caught hell...If the master got sick, theyd pray that the master died. If the master's house caught afire, they'd pray for a strong wind to come along." MX
