richardmurray Posted May 22 Report Share Posted May 22 MY THOUGHTS 0:20 Zenobia your shirt 4:44 People forget that in the 1970s in the north east, some schools had the last of governmentally funded activities. 7:27 And the USA has continually asked Cuba to let them take Assata Shakur from in Cuba. And Assata Shakur still has a warrant for her. 8:29 yes, Billy Holiday 10:18 Tupac is a real life example of a child growing up in an environment like :Night Catches Us Black kids growing up in Black Panther homes in Black communities in the 1970s is a huge dichotomy. The Black Panthers had great successes but were hammered all the time by white organizations , governmentally or private. In the 1970s at their first phases end, the black community in the majority is being abused and attacked , from drugs being put in black communities bu law enforcement agencies which are proxies for white communal wealth. All this creates a complex environment. 16:12 nice musical point on the changes of Tupac's music 18:37 frustration not anger 20:45 stress created the bald headedness, yes , artist knows 23:36 Tupac/Biggie many black entertainers have complex lives. 25:15 Did they ever find out who killed Tupac? 27:13 Selena was pregnant, I didn't know that. 28:25 Interesting that Tupac's family did trust someone who had a relatively negative relationship or distant relationship with Tupac. 30:39 Nike, I thought about what you said about the Aretha Franklin biopic.
