Can you truly describe yourself in one sentence? How do you determine who to support, and who to vilify? With so much attention been giving to the Nate Parker's rape allegations from years ago, there has been a lot of talk about whether or not people should support the film, Birth of A Nation. This dilemma that people are having about Nate isn't new, there has always been this conundrum amongst people, about whether or not they should support certain artist, entertainers, athletes etc, who have faced certain criminal or moral allegations. Whether it be Bill Cosby, Tupac, Mike Tyson, R. Kelly, Chris Brown, Kobe Bryant, Prince and a host of others, there has always been somewhat of a divide on whether or not the support should stop, due to their personal indiscretions. Even on a more personal level, there are parents who's always preached the "do as I say, not as I do" philosophy.

Some people would contend that the message, or entertainment that one provides should not coincide with their personal and moral compass. Others would disagree. What side are you on? Let's talk about it tonight, as we discuss which is more important, the message or the messenger?
