tupac will be remembered for what he was a short guy with a complex who knew better than the behavior he displayed. Rah is the sacred portal and an truly beautiful sister.
Was 2Pac self-destructive? Yes. Was he a role-model to follow? No. But he was a brilliant young man who was angry and confused just like a lot of us are. People forget Pac died when he was 25 - I think people try to forget. How many people have their sh*t together when they're 25? I was confused and self-destructive at 25. And, with all respect, I believe that the refusal to place 2Pac in that context, plays into the tendency that denies human complexity to black folk.
But it's neither here nor there. And, besides, it's OFF-TOPIC
