  •  rejecting the "hood"? (0+ / 0-)

    does that make him a good poet? Blacks can't change, reject or accept the "steroetype image" it's something put on them by others. I think maybe your friend suffers from self-hatred and you want him to 'act white' to be better. Think about it.

    •  Um, I don't think so (1+ / 0-)

      I think I did a piss poor job of explaining myself..girlfriend dragging me back to bed... What I meant is his poems struggle with the sort of stereotype found on MTV, etc, and rejects that in a way. I don't quite knoe how to explain it, because you'd have to hear him, but I hope you understand. I wouldent want anyone to be someone they're not.
