The Confederate Flag is a symbol of the Slave-Holding South. Mississippi and South Carolina need the flags flying to remind of the days they could brutalize Africans with no repercussions. Just beat the shit out of folks to have them do ANYTHING you wanted them to do. All the White men had to do was count their money and Miss Ann could sit on the swing on the veranda of the plantation have her favorite beverage and not worry about a thing except get an occasional case of the Vapors;...

I heard he is headed to the Trump's Administration. This is where greed lifts its ugly head in the black community. And the brother don't care he's black too. And it can happen to him...he sees what's happening all around him but it's about that power and almighty dollar. Like Foreman...Omarosa. To be honest....I'm kinda shocked and sad at the same time. I would never believe this....if someone had told me. But I'm witnessing it myself. Before my very eyes. The traders of the black culture.

Any discussion or commentary of hip hop that does not include or even acknowledge Zulu Nation, its history and work in discussion what Hip Hip "is" should not be taken seriously. This really isn't a NEW position for Zulu Nation, its just that people pay more attention to corporate backed imagery and not the actual culture. This isn't limited to Hip Hop For those who missed it.... Corporate vs. Culture Hip Hop directly connected to the 60's movements
