It's Lupe's constitutional right to not vote... I have no problem with that... but if you don't vote you don't have the right to bi*ch about the state of affairs, either.

And I like his music, but every time he opens his mouth somewhere other than a recording booth I just shake my head. He might be the most conflicted, confused man in the music industry. And he can spare the "400 years of pain and agony" nonsense; it's not like he suffered any of it personally. Those people suffered and overcame that pain and agony to give him the civil rights he is so cavalierly brushing off as beneath him.

He sounds like a faux revolutionary fool with all of his contradictory nonsense. But he can rap really well, so he's got that going for him, I guess...

my dude...no jokes but go back and read the post again because i think you misunderstood what he meant
No offense taken as I did understand the post. There is never a good reason to call brothers and sisters "black n*gga anything". Black people should have opinions and discuss them freely without calling each other n*ggas. The disrespect is awful. This dude claims to be all militant, but has done zero to create or support any substantial political movement. All hot air

.
you don't have a right to bi*ch if you vote & things go from bad to worse like they have been for a decade + neither because you've been warned by myself & other intelligent ppl countless times that your vote doesn't count...

People need to leave Lupe alone about this sh*t, if he doesn't like either candidate, it's his right not to vote, he hasn't told young people not to vote, he has only stated his reasons for not voting.
Real Talk IMO! I think Lupe is a fu*kin weirdo; but i'd have to agree with him on this subject. I never vote; it's like voting for tweedle dee or tweedle dumb, heckle and jeckle, dumb and dumber.

Now if it came to the US against communism, socialism, nazism or something to that nature, then i would vote. But republican or democrat? Does it really matter? Behind closed doors, they are slapping high fives and fu*kin each other on some illuminati sh*t! Yeah they make the general public think it matters...

What wounds do Black Americans today have to heal from? last I checked a Black man is president, Jay Z and Oprah are worth a Kajillion dollars, Black students are given the same resources and and opportunities as White students.

sure, racism is still very alive and we must f!ght through it. However, to fall back on slavery and act as if somebody owes us something is wrong and lazy. Imagine if martin thought that way? Imagine is Malcolm thought that way? Where the fu*k would we be now?the fact that Lupe is on his high horse says alot about how far we have come as a society.

republicans are doing everything possible to keep minorities from voting. If our votes didn't matter, they wouldn't do this. Its funny how much Lupe has in common with our oppressors.......

I disagree

to me, if youre out there voting, then you lose some of the right to bi*ch about the way things are. You perpetuate the same bullsh*t over and over just by voting to keep it all in place. Like if you know a guy is kinda slimy, but he's the lesser of two evils, how can you then turn around and bi*ch about how slimy the guy you elected is? You knew he was fu*ked up from the beginning and you put him into power

people would do themselves a lot more good in the long run if they were willing to withhold their vote and make these politicians really address their concerns

So are you trivializing the civil rights movements where Black people and women fought and sometimes died for sovereignty? You saying they died for nothing?

Wow, how easy is it for cats to talk sh*t now. I wonder if you'd be the type to march with Martin and f!ght with Malcolm..or if you'd be the type to stay home and complain about how nothing will ever change.

A man's heart is evident through his actions, not words......
They fought and died for our rights to vote cause blacks weren't allowed to vote....but because they fought for our rights to vote doesn't mean that our votes count/matter. We all have the right to vote, but like I said it doesn't mean that it counts....I think Michael Moore is speaking on votes counting more than us having the rights to vote...

Don't matter if you vote or not...sh*t is still gonna be the same, if not worse...And besides, we the people don't decide who becomes president, its the Electoral College...How is this country and the government supposed to be about the people if our votes don't count? How are we supposed to have "power" and "voice our opinion" when the Electoral College and elites SELECT the presidents?
