Re: Erykah Badu's stage show

powerflower ·
The first time I heard Erykah Badu was in the wee hours of the morning on the overnight radio show they played her first single "On & On" and my boyfriend at the time woke me up to listen to it. After that I kept hearing the song but didn't know who sang it. Then I was home from college on some break (I think Thanksgiving or Winter Break) and she was on BET with Big Les (remember her?) and they were at her house. It didn't even seem like an interview it was just like watching a visit to...

So far since I was put back here by my job all I've encountered are women that desire the "rap video" lifestyle (even though its nowhere around here except in clothing fashions) and women who are goldiggers and proudly proclaim it...although I do give them props for being honest and upfront about it..so I volunteer for TDY's (tempory tour of duty) just to meet other women in different cities and countries now.

Re: Is Pan-Africanism Truly Possible or Even Logical?

I think People need to read about Pan Africanism, understand how it started who was ivolved and who is involved today. To say something that is already been in motion for about a century its to downplay the great work so many panafrican have done. I would consider giants like Sekou Ture , Kwame Nkruma, Patrice Lamumba as well as so many others were panafricanist in their ideology.
