A Terrorist Organization Known as the KKK is Set to rally at Ole Miss Campus Before LSU Game

I wonder if these dimwits (the KKK)will be subjected to extra scrutiny from Homeland Security? I wonder if the local police will see them as gang and put them in the gang data base or issue an injunction..? Imagine if the word went out that the Bloods or Crips were gonna hold a rally?.. In any case lets not forget the KKK are terrorists..

KKK To Rally On Ole Miss Campus Before LSU Game

http://www.sportsgrindent.com/blog/2009/11/20/kkk-to-rally-on-ole-miss-campus-before-lsu-game/

Ole Miss recently banned their band’s traditional playing of “From Dixie With Love” because people keep shouting “and the South will rise again” at the end of it which is a favored slogan of the KKK.

This has lead to a planned KKK rally on Ole Miss campus before this weekends home game against LSU in protest of the Ole Miss Chancellor Dan Jones’ decision.

“We aren’t coming there to cause problems or cause trouble,”Shane Tate, the North Mississippi great titan for the Mississippi White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan Tate said. “Trouble has already been caused by a handful at Ole Miss, including the black student body president, who wants to shape Ole Miss into yet another liberal sodomite college.”

This is just embarrassing and it disappoints me what some consider as acceptable tradition.

Here’s the other story

The University of Mississippi’s first-year chancellor followed through on a promise and asked the band to stop playing “From Dixie With Love” because fans chant “the South will rise again” at the end of the medley.

Jones, who became chancellor in July, did not specify how long the song at Rebels games will be off limits, but he said elected student leaders can request its return if the chant stops. The tune blends the Confederate Army’s fight song, “Dixie,” with the Union Army’s “Battle Hymn of the Republic.”

“Here at the University of Mississippi, there must be no doubt that this is a warm and welcoming place for all,” Dan Jones wrote in a letter to the university community. “We cannot even appear to support those outside our community who advocate a revival of racial segregation. We cannot fail to respond.”

The band has played “From Dixie With Love” before and after athletic events for about two decades. The practice of some fans chanting “the South will rise again” started in the past five years. The university’s alumni association and coaches and some high-profile financial supporters, including Netscape founder Jim Barksdale, have said the chant should stop. But some students and fans see Jones’ move as a restriction on free speech.

However in other racial news a judge has temporarily blocked higher education officials from changing the University of North Dakota’s Fighting Sioux nickname. The judges decision has the president of North Dakota’s Board of Higher Education, Richie Smith, fearing that the order could delay the university’s efforts to join the Summit League and re-establish its football rivalry with North Dakota State University.

The dispute has its origins in the NCAA’s August 2005 declaration that the Fighting Sioux nickname and Indian head logo should be abolished.

Kinda of disgusted to even add anything else.

Why Rakim’s The Seventh Seal is the best Hip Hop Album of 2009

 By JAHI

A lot of Hip Hop albums came out in 2009. Jay Z BP3, Raekwon‘’s Cuban Links II, Gift of Gab’s Escape to Mars, to name a few, caught my ear. I’m sure you could add your favorite of 2009 so feel free to fill in the blank___.

Hip Hop is still struggling to balance itself, but still evolving and growing. There’s an overflow of commercial, mainstream, and one-sided style of Hip Hop that is only reflecting one part of the black experience. There is still a need, and desire, of everyday people, to hear music that connects with higher charkas. If you are unfamiliar with this word, look, it up.

Rakim’s album The Seventh Seal, is, in my view, the best lyricism with a message, thought provoking rhymes, and best OG status of 2009 on the mic. Oh, and still in my top 5. He’s been in my top 5 since I first heard “Check Out My Melody” in 1986. I was really waiting for the Dr. Dre, Rakim album. When I heard it wasn’t coming out, I was hoping Ra could come out because I wanted to hear where he would take it.

We forget that the pioneers and elders of our culture are still among us, and are still doing music. Why would they not be? Hip Hop is not just a young man’s game. I mean this in no disrespect. But in truth, no Rakim, then maybe not a lot of emcees who are out today. Eric B and Rakim took Hip Hop to a whole different level from “Rappers Delight” and “The Message.”

The new album, The Seventh Seal, doesn’t disappoint. Matter of fact, it really has set a standard and I hope people like KRS and Chuck D got a chance to hear this one. The production, held down by Nottz for Teamsta Entertainment, Loffey For Aaron James Music, Nick Wiz for Preserve The Art, Samuel Christian and Jay Wells, and others really give space for Rakim to really come thru clear and refreshing. It’s profanity free. No sticker on the cover. It doesn’t feel forced. It feels like any black community in the world.

Songs like “Man Above,” “Won’t Be Long,” and “Message in the Song” is like the modern day Curtis Mayfield in rhyme form. If Andre 3K would have came out this year, I probably be writing about his release, but hands down, Rakim’s the Seventh Seal is worth the whole 59.6 seconds. His lyrics are talking about what’s happening in his life, but also what is happening right now. This is what Tupac would do if he was alive. It’s like Rakim has officially taken the side that Tupac had with his more thought provoking songs like Dear Momma and Letters to my Unborn Child. Yes you may be able to dance to “Put It All to Music,” but this is really thinking people music. Adult.

This album is a reflection of the age of Hip Hop. Oh, and I got it for $10 downtown Cleveland, on the release date, and it was there, in stock. The cover, and the photos by Michael Wong really set a nice mood with the CD itself (recycled paper instead of plastic) is something everone in Hip Hop should have in their catalog. Ok. I think I’ve talked it up enough. Check out. Support good music.

Peace. JAHI
