What a fucking farce; psuedo-political blather about how black
athletes and hiphop are holding down their "black brothers and
sisters".  It's so divorced from reality and void of any "marxist"
analysis that I do not even know where to start.

You can't go diss someone for sporting "symbols of defiance
... without substance" when you post bullshit like this with the
username of Octob1917.

Can we please cut the chauvinist, paternalistic shclock?  You can't
redeem your fuckwit comments with some romantic vision of the
downtrodden masses rising up and overthrowing Imperialism with the
force of their revolutionary anger once they are disabused of their
false hopes in athletes and hip-hop which you so grasciously point
