That is like saying why doesn't anyone that is not Italian American watch Sopranoes.
It completely underestimates the achievement of the musician. OB4CL it is a good album because it is a good piece of music. Just like Hell on Earth or Illmatic or Ironman or 36 Chambers or Ironman. Sure the guy that made these were black. But come on, let us pay our repect to these guys, they are talented regardless of the colour of their skin.
I mean common on, how many of you went and beame doctor because you like House or Scrubs?
That's why we do the do, just know who is who, acknowledge me all day, and understand Wu is Wu - Chef Raekwon

to me its whatever. were all humans. people who look at another human like they are different because of the pigment of their skin is beyond me.
like get over it. were all the same, its been artificial boundaries and mental conditioning that have made us look at each other like we're different.
in light of the aforementioned, i dont find it weird that i enjoy public enemy.

People are too stupid to effectively conspire to do anything, but not too stupid to come up with conspiracy theories.
We're not debating how a person can enjoy Chuck Berry, Miles Davis and Kool G Rap when they aren't the same color.
BIBLE is a great song and i'm sure everyone here loves that. It has a very strong black empowerment message.
I can understand the need for black empowerment and I enjoy the song.
At the same time, it probably won't have the same impact on me that it might on a black kid hearing this stuff for the first time. But I definitely feel that song on a personal level, because that was a big song for me. it was that kind of shit along with Public Enemy, Blackstar and whoever else I was listening to as a teenager that opened my eyes to whats going on in society, and also the possibilities of the meaning of life.
As a teen, I've listened to Public Enemy (grown up with them) and I totally relate to the simple fact that they were pissed and rebelling against the powers that be. Blackstar on the other hand is so introspective that I could connect their philosophical musings in different ways.
