    Nice! Makes some great points. I love how you respectfully & succintly “broke it all down.”

    I love the idea of “Don’t Read Scripture” & “Don’t Listen to Talib, Dead Prez (The Coup, Immortal Technique, Pettidee, Corey Red…)billboards.

    I’ve actually told kids it was probably better for them not to read the Old Testament because of all the sex & violence and of course, it got them all interested in it!

    I just wanna say i really enjoy your blogs. Its a shame these animals on this site will probably hate on you for making intelligent videos. These kids only wanna make fun of Lil Wayne and 50 Cent all day, not hear about anything else. But keep up the good work and fuck these lil kids.

    He does it again! Yet another brillant post. You’ve quickly become the best blogger on this site and have blown everyone else out of the water. I liked everyone point here, but I don’t think the chruch likes dead prez, well at least they shouldn’t. Since dead prez are only atheist. The Apple marketing idea was funny too.

    Great post, you’ve quickly become the best blogger on this site. Sunday might make a comeback, but he’s too busy making up “the most hip hop things to eat for brunch” But I must say, the church shouldnt approve of dead prez since their openly atheist. The IRap idea is pretty funny too.

    another great post. The comment about putting up a billboard warning kids against the Bible is absolutely brilliant . . . and hilarious. The last point is poignant and correct. What has the church done for these kids lately? I’m saying this as a Christian. My Barber asked me not that long ago why I think the church has lost so much sway in the black community. I didn’t have a great answer for him, but it’s kind of like the U.S. in Iraq. When it comes to winning the hearts and minds we’re not even really in the fight.

    Jay Smooth,

    Which book by Prof. Dyson are you reading? The new one with Jay and Nas?

    He’s an amazing dude…smart and breaks things down in a language that’s very clear and not condesending.

    As long as Church doesn’t get commercial like rappers do to some stuff I say Ok!
    peace on all
