@PEACHFUZZ79....PERHAPS THE ONLY COMMENTER THAT BROKE THIS DOWN APPROPRIATELY. OF COURSE, TI IS A NEO-MINSTREL BUT THE AGEISM ON THIS SITE IS NOT ONLY APPALLING BUT INACCURATE. So many Black folks are dying before they turn 30 that perhaps it makes some insane sort of "sense" to call someone "old" if they make it past 30. The fear of death and aging appears to be a very primitive and effete thing that is overly emphasized in this lower tier culture. Obesity, poor education, a lack of exercise and proper dieting are what REALLY exacerbates aging and I wouldn't doubt that many of the commenters who insist on donning AFRO-SAXON TOUPEES, CAUCASIAN GLUE CAPS AND, CAUCASIAN HAIR HATS ARE IN POOR HEALTH ARE ONE HOE CAKE AWAY FROM FULL ONSET DIABETES.
If we (and I'm being tribal here, folks....which I HATE to do) as a people are going to be competitive in this society, in the wake of the new world order, the emphasis on this neo-COONERY must cease. HOW MANY TIMES ARE WE GOING TO CONTINUE TO SUBSIDIZE AND/OR SUPPORT BLACK OR BROWN DYSFUNCTIONALISM FOR PROFIT? MTO, THE COURT SHOWS, TALK SHOWS AND RADIO PROGRAMS (STEVE HARVEY WITH HIS INSISTENCE ON USING COUNTRY GRAMMAR) CONTRIBUTE TO THE DISRESPECT THAT BLACKS ROUTINELY RECEIVE FROM THE LOWEST SECTORS OF BLACK COMMUNITY ALL THE WAY TO THE WHITE HOUSE. I SPEAK ABOUT AFRONERD RADIO CONSISTENTLY HERE ON MTO BECAUSE WE MUST COMBAT THIS PERCEPTION. SOME OF US REMEMBER WHEN WE HAD RESPECTFUL BLACK REPRESENTATION. IT MUST BE BY DESIGN THAT WE HAD HEROES RANGING FROM RUBY DEE, HARRY BELAFONTE, OSSIE DAVIS, PAUL ROBESON, DOROTHY DANDRIDGE AND SO FORTH TO NOW LIL WAYNE, NICKI MINAJ, WACKA, 50 CENT, NON ACTORS FROM "REALITY" SHOWS AND A WHOLE ROSTER OF NEO- MINSTRELS. WE WENT FROM CLEAN, ARTICULATE AND SOPHISTICATED BLACK REPRESENTATION TO NOW LAUDING OVER STREET BLACKS WHO COULD CARE LESS ABOUT HOW THEIR ANTICS PLAY OUT ON THE WORLD STAGE.
