Talib Kweli first tracked me down on Twitter because I asked him a question.  Then I said 'who are you?' I really didn't know, I didn't travel in his circles.  I jerked his chain and for the next 24 hours I was baraged by him (famous enough to do a gig in NZ) and his comrades for being racist.  Really?  I'm racist because.....I refused to subscribe to his social coercion that all whites contributed to structural racism just on the basis that they were born white.  Hell no, we won't go.  I shared with him articles I wrote on Michael Brown, Freddie Gray, etc.  I did not share with him the article I wrote on Tamir Rice but maybe I should have.  He was born to good parents but has dwindled into a menacing life of swearing, belittling and Black supremacy.  He's no Malcom X.  Malcom X had fortitude and dignity.

Tonight I will address his ridiculous form of bullying including his admissions that he has taken on the role of the male oppressor.  This was a fight I didn't need but will defend.
