'09 | Pay Attention

Those are the two words, amidst an hour and a half of others, that the incredible Chuck D left me and a room of others. "Dumb shit flies fast," he said. We have to be able to detect it and stop it mid air. If we don't we become it. Besides this he also reminded us of what today is. Today is the day the voice of reason for black America was silenced 41 years ago in Memphis, TN. It is the anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s death. I'll admit I awoke today with no acknowledgment. Talk about paying attention.
