Sensi Life 3:45 Wednesday 7/27/11 Trendy Slacktavism

There are so many slacktavists who see activism as a sure way to social status.  This is a broadcast about 'trustafarians' who sport the Lion of Zion emblem or wear the colors of the Ethiopian flag, but know or care nothing about Ras Ta Fari (aka Halie Selassie I), 'anarchists' who believe in socialism, and "peace promoting hippies' who tout warbama slogans on their social networking sites and bumper stickers.

Twenty-five years ago they spoke out and they broke out

Of recession and oppression and together they toked

And they folked out with guitars around a bonfire

Just singin' and clappin' man what the hell happened

Then some were spellbound some were hellbound

Some they fell down and some got back up and

Fought back 'gainst the melt down

And their kids were hippie chicks all hypocrites

Because fashion is smashin' the true meaning of it
