Reply to "9/11 - The Anniversary, The Legacy"

This is great:

Mos Def and Cornel West with Bill Maher

Though I don't go in on the 9-11 conspiracy theory, I relish Mos Def's skepticism.

Whenever folks (whites in particular) ask me what I think about the significance of 9-11, my response is basically that the only difference between life pre:9-11 and life post:9-11 is that before 9-11 it was only me who was afraid in this society. Now they are too. So they need to grow up and get a grip. The world was NEVER safe. That's some Mickey Mouse fantasy ish.

I vividly remember that though I was definitely interested in events, I was not one bit more afraid (or anxious) the day after than I was the day before.

Cornel pretty much speaks for me on this one. Smile
