I don't stand for the black man's side, I don' t stand for the white man's side.I stand for God's side.Often times, the Google Trends gadget I have on my home page makes me shake my head in disgust at the ignorance of my fellow humans. Fortunately, Skynets (aka Google) isn't doing that today, and it made me see that one of the best musicians of all time had an anniversary today (that of his untimely death).
Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery, none but ourselves can free our minds!The singer I am referencing is of course Bob Marley (as today marks 30 years since his death). Certainly, Marley is not an individual that I would agree with in every facet of life, but he did understand nobility, integrity, freedom, and rights. Those are personal characteristics I have to admire!
Rest Peacefully Bob, and know well that your music is still delivering the goods to this day.
ETA: WaPo Blog Post here (and you should know how I hate the WaPo) has a nice write up on the Jamaican National Hero.
