Plan BK - The Solutions: "I believe that children are the future..."




...but for the present, if you can, please, swallow your pride.


(sigh)


Or help get some stuff done to do to make sure they're cool.


(...)


I remember watching the special features on the "Thug Angel" DVD, a documentary about the late great Tupac Shakur. One of his mentors, Shock G from Digital Underground ("The Humpty Dance" and other classics), spoke of deciding what artistic direction they wanted to pursure as a rap group.

Before becoming "the original big-nosed, two-toned, skinny-rapper", Shock was a hardcore militant Save The World artist who regularily attended Black Power meetings in Oakland with his friends in Digital Underground. They were planning on bringing the drama in a hardcore political way; and then Public Enemy hit, and they had to re-evaluate. Then they planned on bringing the drama in a hardcore hippie way; and then De La Soul hit, and they had to re-evaluate.

One thing Shock said struck me in particular.

He noticed that the only time he saw black and white and other people just enjoying being together in peace and harmony was at parties or concerts where they were enjoying music.

Or, to quote the great Bob Marley:

"The one good thing about music;
When it hits, you feel no pain."


Shock felt that the combination of music and sex bringing people together to party would make revolution possible, and in fact, was the best means available. And so it came to pass that we enjoyed Digital Underground bringing the drama with a hardcore booty-shaking philosophy, moving the revolution forward on jiggy-joint at a time.

(Or he just wanted to get laid. One never really knows why these filthy, filty rappers do anything.)

INTERLUDE: Irony is Dead - Defending Kanye West's song "Goldigger".





I think he's being ironic.

The whole song is ironic, and I like the way he doesn't make a straight-up value judgment on what a "Goldigger" is to each of us.

We all know what is "right" and "wrong" from a knee-jerk reaction perspective, and we can all take "words" or "thoughts" that inflame our anger instinctively and deny any nuances. This sucks, but is part of the f-word (fascism) that's blanketing the world right now and reducing us to simple tribalism, leaving us at the mercy of fear-mongering that gets a mob-reaction.

It's all part of the "flip-flop", "blame-game", "cut-and-run" and the rest of the simple-speak being GOPimp'd through the mass-media that's weakening us intellectually, and we're all starting to speak and think this way. If we fall victim to it we quickly demonize each other for not being exactly what we or our peers are, denying ourselves the right to define our own morality and expect a sympathetic ear to allow us explain it. This leads to more stereotyping based on evidence that we may not even fully understand because we feel we don't need to.

I think Kanye cares.

I think he's his own man, and I'm giving him the benefit of the doubt when it comes to his artistic expression... so I'll work a little harder to try and understand it in that context.

If I fail, he's an evil, arrogant, self-loathing, racist bastard hell-bent on destroying the black community.

If I succeed, he's an incredible artist with great beats and a unique evolving flow who makes the complex simple - like many great thinkers do.

Then I can bump his stuff and feel great.

(Which, I confess, I do now. His first album was okay... too many skits, a little over-produced, but with some classic tracks. But "Late Registration" is awesome: the best album of the year.)

So, here I go...


VERSE ONE:

- He's saying he met this gorgeous girl who likes to be spoiled by guys with money. He grumbles about the situation and is clearly frustrated by it; then he reflects on who she's been with and why; and then he says screw it:

What would you do with money?

- Back off, because if you don't have any you don't know, and if you look at nearly everyone else who's paid-in-full, they've all done variations on the same thing by using money to have excessive or indulgent fun.

- Money makes it easier to get a girl or anything else today for that matter, and he's admitting his weakness for this particular mami despite the issues he's struggling with, recognizing that he's basically trading his cash for some (nice) ass.


Cutie the bomb
Met her at a beauty salon
With a baby Louis Vuitton
Under her underarm
She said I can tell you ROC
I can tell by ya charm
Far as girls you got a flock
I can tell by ya charm and ya arm
but I'm lookin for the one
have you seen her
My psychic told me she would have a ass like Serena
Trina, Jennifer Lopez, four kids
An I gotta take all they bad ass to show-biz?
Ok get ya kids but then they got their friends
I Pulled up in the Benz, they all got up In
We all went to Den and then I had to pay
If you fuckin with this girl then you betta be payed
You know why
It take too much to touch her
From what I heard she got a baby by Busta
My best friend say she use to @#%$ wit Usher
I dont care what none of yall say I still love her...



VERSE TWO:

- He's saying be careful, if you're going to mess around with one of these girls keep your wits about you (2Pac warned us similarily), and make sure you don't get taken. That sounds like fair advice, I hope his "Denny's date" above went well.

- He's already called-out Busta and Usher in this track, so I'm guessing he's got a football-friend who had half his NFL paycheques taken by a girl. And, while he probably doesn't drive-off in a Hyundai, he might have, and it's a nice lyric-metaphor for how he downsized (or "de-PIMP'd") his car-collection anyway.

- So, better make sure you get a pre-nup so you're money's tight, and if you knock her up make sure you get that paternity test: a women who'll date you for your money may want to keep it.

(Note: Crap-tastic Caveat... "not all women are like this"... blah-blah-blah... more obvious crap... blah-blah-blah... I mean c'mon, can't we identify real people anymore? Of course not all women are like this, but you can't tell me none are, and you can't tell me that people don't make fair-deals involving love/money/stability this way all the time, trading what they got for what they get.)


18 years, 18 years
She got one of yo kids got you for 18 years
I know somebody payin child support for one of his kids
His baby momma's car and crib is bigger than his
You will see him on TV Any Given Sunday
Win the Superbowl and drive off in a Hyundai
She was spose to buy ya shorty TYCO with ya money
She went to the doctor got lypo with ya money
She walkin around lookin like Michael with ya money
Should of got that insured got GEICO for ya moneeey
If you aint no punk holla "We Want Prenup!"
"WE WANT PRENUPT!, Yeaah!"
It's something that you need to have
Cause when she leave yo ass she gone leave with half
18 years, 18 years
And on her 18th birthday he found out it wasn't his?



VERSE THREE:


- Much like other leaders speak on behalf of their communities, I think he's putting himself on the line here with a last lyric that's actually:

"But when HE get on he leave yo a** for a white girl..."

He knew it would be controversial, but also in some cases, sadly true.

(Note: Crap-tastic Caveat... "not all guys are like this"... blah-blah-blah...)

- This reminds me of Chris Rock's issues from a while back with his "black people vs. niggaz!" comments, where he broke down the problems in a way that didn't whitewash them for public consumption. He wasn't endorsing them in any fashion and in fact was critiquing them, but just mentioning them got him in a lot of hot water.

- Kanye's doing the same thing here: he's not endorsing this behavior, but after taking shots at "Goldiggers" for the whole track he's showing how guys can be just as shady once they get that money and start chasin' them damn "Goldiggers" themselves. The sexual-politricks game is complicated and he's breaking its problems down honestly, so to take this as "instructive" is to miss the boat: it's the exact opposite. He's defining a destructive pattern in the black community as he sees it (and as anyone honest will admit does happen), and suggesting that we all keep our eyes open when entering into a relationship.


Now I aint sayin you a gold digger you got needs
You dont want ya dude to smoke but he can't buy weed
You got out to eat and he cant pay yall cant leave
There's dishes in the back, he gotta roll up his sleeves
But why yall washin watch him
He gone make it into a Benz out of that Datson
He got that ambition baby look in his eyes
This week he moppin floorz next week it's the fries
So, stick by his side
I know his dude's ballin but yea thats nice
And they gone keep callin and tryin
But you stay right girl
But when HE get on he leave yo a** for a white girl...



Damn. Now that's a wikkid track.


Peace, (NOW!!!)
BK

Anyway, some good news and some bad news.

I first heard about this from a buddy who said it was in the third issue of "Women's Health Magazine", a sister publication to his preferred "Men's Health" fitness-Bible. Sorry I couldn't find anything more recent online, but check the magazing racks or Google in the near future if you care about this subject. He read from a small article which claimed (among other things) that no matter how it's received, it has 110% more pain-relieving properties than the strongest women's pain-reliever. Frankly, it's entirely possible that we'll all be much happier if this information is acted on by more of us. Hey, I'm just sayin'...

Who knows?

Maybe we were made like this for a reason, and hopefully we can work out something that works for all of us.

(Or, each of us.)

(I'm skipping a Crap-tastic Caveat for now, I'm sick of 'em.)

Ahem.

Laura Bush?

Lynn Cheney?

Joyce Rumsfeld?

I'm talking to you.

Please, chill your dudes out.

They're scaring the crap out of us.

Thanks.

Semen 'makes women happy'

Women exposed to their partner's semen during sex may find themselves feeling happier than those who use a condom, say scientists.

Scientists in the US believe the mood-altering hormones in semen absorbed through the vagina help to boost women's mood.

Semen contains a range of hormones, including testosterone and oestrogen, both of which have been shown to improve mood.


"We are not advocating that people abstain from using condoms." - Gordon Gallup

However, they warned that their findings should not be used to encourage people to practise unsafe sex.

Gordon Gallup and colleagues at the State University of New York divided 293 female students into groups on the basis of how often their partners wore condoms.

Mood tests

They used standard psychological tests to assess how happy they were and their overall mood.

They found that women whose partners never used condoms were happiest. They were followed by women whose partners sometimes used condoms.

Women whose partners always used or usually used condoms were less happy.

The study, details of which are published in New Scientist magazine, also found that a lack of sexual intercourse made some women depressed.

Women whose partners never or sometimes used condoms became more depressed the longer they went without sex.

However, there was no similar pattern for those women whose partners usually or always used condoms.

The scientists also found that depression and suicide attempts were more common among those women whose partners used condoms regularly.

Further evidence

Mr Gallup told the magazine that an extended study on more than 700 women has backed up these findings.

He added that other factors such as how often the women had sex, the strength of their relationships, their personalities or the use of oral contraceptives did not affect the overall conclusions.

Mr Gallup said the findings may also apply to women who engage in unprotected oral sex and people who engage in anal sex. But he said further research was needed in these areas.

But Mr Gallup, whose study will be published in the journal Archives of Sexual Behaviour, urged couples to continue to practise safe sex.

"I want to make it clear that we are not advocating that people abstain from using condoms," he said.

"Clearly an unwanted pregnancy or a sexually transmitted disease would more than offset any advantageous psychological effects of semen."

Psychology Today

Crying over spilled semen: hormone-rich sperm may elevate women's moods

Relationships - Brief Article

Psychology Today, Sept-Oct, 2002
by Tiffany Kary


The finding that women who do not use condoms during sex are less depressed and less likely to attempt suicide than those who use condoms or those who are not sexually active leads one researcher to speculate that semen contains powerful--and potentially addictive--mood-altering chemicals.

Study author Gordon Gallup, Ph.D., a psychologist at the State University of New York in Albany, also found that women who routinely had intercourse without condoms became increasingly depressed as more time elapsed since their last sexual encounter. There was no such correlation for women whose partners regularly used condoms.

Gallup's survey of 293 college women also found that those who did not use condoms were most likely to initiate sex and to seek out new partners as soon as a relationship ended. "These women are more vulnerable to the rebound effect, which suggests that there is a chemical dependency," says Gallup.


Semen contains hormones including testosterone, estrogen, prolactin, luteinizing hormone and prostaglandins, and some of these are absorbed through the walls of the vagina and are known to elevate mood.

Gallup controlled for variables including method of contraception, frequency of sexual intercourse, as well as the women's perceptions of their relationships. He concedes that women who regularly have sex without condoms might share personality traits that make them less susceptible to depression. But the behavior most often associated with non-condom users is sexual risk-taking, and studies have found no correlation between high-risk sexual behavior and lower rates of depression.

Gallup's study, which he deems "the first serious attempt to investigate the effect of semen chemistry on women," titillated the public and rankled some academics upon publication in Archives of Sexual Behavior. Gallup says he has since replicated the findings with a sample of 700 women and will examine whether "semen withdrawal" places women at an increased risk for depression when they are premenstrual, menopausal or have just given birth, as many women abstain from sex during these times.

Semen makes women happy, scientists prove

The news we have all been waiting for
by Lester Haines

Male ejaculate contains hormones which make women happy, a survey has proved. Females who had unprotected sex were found to considerably more cheerful than those who insisted on a condom.

Visibly-excited scientists were quick to press the advantages of semen on their female colleagues, with a resultant immediate improvement in staff morale.


But the work doesn't end there: the boffins now intend to further prove that regular doses of the wonder fluid will be effective in fighting the seven signs of ageing.

"There's no doubt that man-juice will show itself to be seventeen per cent ahead of pro-retinol A in eliminating minor wrinkles and improving skin tone," one beauty expert told The Rockall Times. "Quite frankly, there's no point in shelling out a fortune for lotions and unguents when there's a virtually unlimited free supply of age-defying cream just waiting to be harvested."

Male government health advisors enthusiastically agree, and are urging women to "swallow, not spit". A nation-wide TV advertising campaign aimed at married females is expected in the Autumn.

Hello alan2000-ga,

It seems that it just may be good for skin and complexion. In addition
to the resource Pink mentioned in the comments, I have came across
another which says that semen contains protien, which tightens the
skin helping with wrinkles. Also, "contains an abundance of natural
lipids and essential amino acids and prostaglandins, natural
substances which aid in skin repair and increase blood flow bringing
in more nutrients to the to the skin."

http://www.tomigion.com/phpshop/sun_tip.html

While I'm sure it's been used to many man's advantage, I think there
may be some truth to it.

Yes it works well! My face went dry and crispy, leaving the remains of

You have to be careful what direction you shoot it though. I had a

your eyes aswell. When I smell bleach it reminds me of my partner so I
have now turned to savlon disinfectant.

My partner has seen the benefits aswell but tends to make his beard

Cheney warns of 'decades of war'

BBC News | November 17, 2005
By Jonathan Beale

US Vice-President Dick Cheney has said that the US must be prepared to fight the war on terror for decades.


Addressing US military personnel, he said that the only way terrorists would win was if the US lost its nerve and abandoned Iraq and the Middle East.

Mr Cheney is the latest senior member of the US administration trying to bolster support for the war in Iraq.

On Thursday, President George W Bush will once again address the issue in a major speech in Washington.

"Like other great duties in history, it will require decades of patient effort, and it will be resisted by those whose only hope for power is through the spread of violence."

Dick Cheney
US Vice-President


The situation in Iraq remains the Bush administration's biggest challenge and all its senior figures have been brought out to defend the policy as public support for the war continues to slide.

Mr Cheney said that the threat of terrorism would be removed as people in Iraq and the wider Middle East took control of their own lives.

But he added, in a direct appeal to the American people, that like other great duties in history, it would require decades of patient effort.

'Civil war'

The vice president insisted that progress was being made in training up Iraq's own security forces, though he did not indicate how long US forces would remain.

President Bush has promised that America will stay on the offensive to prevent insurgents from disrupting next week's referendum on Iraq's new constitution.

But as the number of US military personnel killed rises towards 2,000, the grumblings are getting louder.

In a letter to President Bush, Democrat senators have warned that continuing on the same path in Iraq could lead to a full-blown civil war.

Tax-Cut Measure Faces Bush Veto Threat

By MARY DALRYMPLE, AP Tax Writer 1 hour, 15 minutes ago

WASHINGTON - A $60 billion bill the Senate passed to continue expiring tax cuts and shelter 14 million families from higher taxes faces a White House veto threat because it also includes a hefty tax increase for oil companies.

The legislation passed by senators early Friday would spare millions of families from paying increased taxes through the alternative minimum tax. Much of the bill, passed 64-33, preserves tax cuts approved in previous years that are set to expire unless lawmakers keep them alive.


But unlike a bill assembled by the House tax writing committee, it does not preserve lower tax rates for capital gains and dividends scheduled to disappear at the end of 2008. Congress lowered the maximum tax rate on that investment income to 15 percent in 2003, and many Republicans want to act this year to keep those rates in place in 2009 and 2010.

It was doubtful whether the House would vote on its bill before leaving for the Thanksgiving holiday. "It's a possibility that we'll move it if we're ready to move it," Speaker Dennis Hastert, R-Ill., said early Friday. "We'll have to see where the votes are."

Most Democrats oppose the tax cuts for investment income. Senate leaders dropped an extension from their bill because a key moderate Republican balked at its inclusion.

GOP leaders vow it will reappear before the final tax bill reaches President Bush's desk.

The White House wants to see another change in the Senate bill: elimination of a $4.3 billion tax increase on oil companies.

"This provision would result in a retroactive tax increase by changing a long-accepted accounting practice," the White House said in a statement warning that senior advisers would recommend that President Bush veto the legislation if it's not removed.

The House omitted a major provision in the Senate bill, a change preventing a tax hit on millions of families caused by the alternative minimum tax. Originally intended as a levy to prevent the wealthy from avoiding taxation, the alternative minimum tax must be tweaked every year to keep it from applying to additional millions more families.

The House and Senate bills reduce taxes roughly $60 billion over five years. Both preserve tax breaks scheduled to expire, including a business research and development credit, a low-income saver's credit, investment incentives for small businesses and a deduction for state and local sales taxes.

Both are versions of a $70 billion tax cut outlined in a budget drafted earlier this year.

The Senate's bill would offer $7 billion in assistance to businesses and individuals hit by Hurricane Katrina and other storms, filling in details of President Bush's proposed Gulf Opportunity Zone. Taxpayers also would get new incentives to make charitable contributions at the same time that tax-writers put new curbs on charitable deductions deemed excessive.

A last minute change to the Senate tax bill would require corporate executives to count as income the value of personal use of corporate aircraft.

Al-Zarqawi Threatens to Kill Jordan's King

2 minutes ago


AMMAN, Jordan - An audiotape purportedly from the head of al-Qaida in Iraq Friday threatened to kill Jordan's King Abdullah II and bomb more hotels and tourist sites.

The speaker on the tape, identified as Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, also said the group's suicide bombers did not intend to bomb a Jordanian wedding party at an Amman hotel last week, killing about 30 people.

Al-Zarqawi said the bomber who detonated his explosives in the Radisson SAS hotel on Nov. 9 was targeting a hall where he claimed Israeli and American intelligence officials were meeting.

That bomb caused part of the roof to fall in the wedding hall.

Al-Zarqawi accused the Jordanian government of hiding casualties among Israeli and American intelligence agents, and he insisted al-Qaida in Iraq was not targeting fellow Muslims.

"We want to assure you that ... you are more beloved to us than ourselves," al-Zarqawi said, addressing Jordanians.

Black Krishna, I need a little inspiration... I've read your post 'Plan BK - The Solutions: ', I enjoyed it so I decided to comment. I've been thinking about my blog and how there are all these people posting strange comments there. Maybe you understand, I'm not sure, but it's tiring to read the numbers of comments that don't have much to do with my stuff. My normal healthy skin rash guards website never suffers this because it just sells healthy skin rash guards and isn't a blog. Do you have any ideas for how to stop the cluttering of non-relevant comments? Thanks for your great blog. Tips are always welcome...

good day -

Black Krishna, what are we going to do...? I'm not sure about you but it's getting harder and harder to enjoy my blog because of all the spam it's getting attacked with. You may be having a similar problem... I enjoy my normal site about sports rash guards because it doesn't get cluttered with shallow comments, but when I'm visiting other blogs and places on the web looking for sports rash guards stuff it seems to be everywhere.

Well I'm not sure if you have any good tips, but good luck with your website goals. I wish you the best.

Aloha Black Krishna,
I'm a visitor from Hawaii and just found your post Plan BK - The Solutions: . I like it... it's interesting so I decided to read and say hi. Although my interests are mostly about woman rash guards related information right now, your blog got my attention and was a nice change. Thanks for your nice blog Black Krishna, I think I'll tell my cousin to stop by if that's okay.
~ Aloha ~

Hey Folks,

I sympathize, but I don't care.

If that makes any sense.

I mean, if it's bothering you then by all means do something about it, but I'd suggest you also simply not care.

Perhaps you can avoid allowing anonymous posts, but really, with attempted restrictions on free speech growing worldwide I'd rather keep the faucets as open as possible for my own site.

Or, to quote the great Shock G from Digital Underground:

"I mean rich, poor, high, low, or upper-middle class,
Let's all get together and have a few laughs,
And doowhatwelike,
Yeah, and doowhatwelike, yeah, and doowhatwelike.
And since you came here you gotta show and prove,
And do that dance, until it don't move,
Doowutchyalike,
Sometimes I bite.
Now if you're hungry, get yourself something to eat,
And if you're dirty, then go take a bath.
Messed up the line?
Nope, sometimes I don't rhyme.
Help yourself to a cracker, with a spread of cheddar cheese,
Have a neck bone, you don't have to say please,
Eatwutchyalike, yo, smellhowyalike.
Everybody doowutchyalike...

(chorus)

Ooh, I see guys and girls dancin', ooh, ooh
Doowutchyalike
Ooh, I see guys and girls dancin', ooh, ooh
Yo, doowutchyalike, you know what I'm sayin'?
Ooh, I see guys and girls dancin', ooh, ooh
Whatever you like to do...talkhowyalike
Ooh, I see, I see, I see guys and girls dancin', ooh, ooh..."

- Digital Underground, "Doowutchyalike"

Besides: who knows?

For the life of me I can't figure out why "spam" is still here if it doesn't work. Either people feel like they benefit from it or maybe they just get screwed - like users of McDonald's, drugs, TiVo, booze, Infomercials, cigarettes...

Or, perhaps the evil forces at work trying to confuse us are endorsing it. I know I've seen a huge spike in spam in my Yahoo email account and it's been a few years since legislation was debated to curb it... so perhaps it's something they'll just let slide because it's helping to screw us.

I know for all the talk of "family values" coming out of the GOP, they've stopped short of cracking down on most media-violence and porn. As I've suggested they may want us to hang ourselves with our gold rope-chains, so we'd better be aware of how the hypocrisy of our political leadership has practical impacts on our habits.

In reading some of your comments I see the irony: I rarely get ANY comments on what I've actually written - including those here.

It's all good as people seem to genuinely enjoy what I've written, and these posts are designed for posterity since they're part of a massive blueprint to help Save The World I want to get down now before I get too busy.

So, good luck with your own hustles, please invite who you wish to check my stuff out, and feel free to pimp your products here whenever you want - maybe another reader will benefit.

Finally, as my man Streets straight out of Scarlemworld has been preachin' for years:

"Don't sweat the petty things, and don't pet the sweaty things."

Peace, (That'll help everything.)
BK
