"4 Little Girls" is great (and extremely difficult to watch at times). Another recent work by Spike is "A Huey P. Newton Story". This is fantastic! It stars Roger Guenveur Smith (Smiley from "Do the Right Thing") in a one man show.

Re: Hamas shakes up Mideast politics

Kweli4Real ·
When I heard this story this morning, I was struck by a thought ... Hamas is the Palistinian equivalent to the Black Panther Party of the late 60's'early 70's. Just as the Panther Party was protrayed by the media as a radical violent organization, the truth has it that Hamas' primary function is the provision of food, shelter and social services to Palistinian people without regard to whether the beneficiaries support their anti-zionist agenda. Sure, Hamas has members that blow stuff up; but...

Lord please help this Kneegrow. First - I support the Palestinean's RIGHT TO SELF DETERMINATION. Hamas, just like the Sunni's in Iraq have been told to engage in the poltical process rather than violent actions to get their way. Some people played this election victory as a "loss" for the USA and Israel. This couldn't be further from the truth. Second - the media did a report on a Hamas lady who was elected though she had no previous political experience. She sent 3 of her 5 sons to their...

Re: Does MLK Get A Bad Rap?

James Wesley Chester ·
I think a lot of MLK'S success was the result of the high activity of its spinoff SNCC, and high inciting voice of Malcolm. The in-the-street reality of The Black Panther party was also a strong contributor, and maybe of equal magnitude. Then President Johnson had choose. Did he want Stokely, Malcolm, or Huey, in any combination, or did he want Martin. In order for Martin to be successful, he had to have some successes. The masses were being divided among the "angry three." This is not to...

Re: The Civil Rights Movement is dead and the Hip-Hop Gen X'ers, need a reason.

I strongly believe that the Civil Rights movement died at the end of the 1960's. The movement that has existed for the past 30 years is the Black Power/Black Nationlist Movement as it was brought to the forefront in the 1990's. Actually, I think that the Black Power/Black Nationlist Movement has always been in existence since the first slave came to the shores of the New World. Examples of this are the overthrow of the French in Haiti, Marcus Garvey and UNIA which boasted 1 million members...

Toussaint, you must know that Black folk do not care enough about the right to bear arms to debate what those who made the second amendment had in mind. This is an issue of concern to white citizens.
