The music industry has shown it can stand a storm. The wave of NAPSTER and what to do with music sharing has not made the industry crash and burn. The abundance of tours going on throughout the US is both a testament to GOOD music but also a testament to GREAT supporters of Music. I will be booking tickets to see a HIP HOP ARTIST with a HIP HOP Band soon come. But today is a testament of how GOOD GOD is and How GOOD we as music industry “experts” have done in going thru the music sharing proclamations of the end of the music bizness. We have more to go but today was a good day.
Was the expectation for a guilty verdict in the Trayvon Martin case a diluted dream. Was it as simple as a man following a young black male, and consequently that young black male is dead. Was it all so simple as that. Was it as simple as whistling at a White women from a young black male, that resulted in his torture and death. Was it as simple as a Preacher who had a vision of a Poor Peoples Party to change the course of the establish political environment of he United States, as a result he is dead and his dream still remains a dream. Could it have all been so simple on November 7, 2013 that a self-identified Black Male ascended to the top of the Political landscape in the United States of America, that racial intolerance would cease to exist. We know it has not and it will not be so simple.
