Crown 'em

Happy Martin Luther King day.

In celebration, I'm going to Phoenix with some of my friends. Wanna tag along?
So, lemme get this straight: A man dedicates his life to the practice of non-violence to turn on the conscience of a nation. Not everybody honors his legacy. And here's a song by people who say that they'll honor his legacy by threatening the life of ignorant law-makers.

Only in America.

Turn a cheek. You just might save a life.


  1. I don't know the song but it's typical of our society, isn't it? Fighting ignorance with violence, fighting violence with stupidity, fighting stupidity with stupidity.


  2. yep. and i'm more or less a Public Enemy fan. i agree that the public officials that have neglected this honor for African-Americans (though i believe it's really for all americans. for when one of us is in slavery, all of us are in bonds) is guilty of extreme ignorance and prejudice, but i think the tactic's wrong.

    then again, i realize my own knee-jerk reaction to ignorance. it doesn't honor King or the King of Kings.

    but then there's the boondock's episode on King coming back...

    don't get me started on that.


Be kind. Rewind.
