I had written a response that disagreed with the idea that it was "compelling." I had figured it was thought provoking, but not compelling but have reflected and changed my mind simply because it is nice to see rap going back to a political, thought provoking message rather than what it had devolved into over the last couple of decades. While I was never a fan of the genera, in the early days it provoked thought and debate- something this young man seems to manage very well.
I disagree with him only because he seems to be saying that the army would be called out and they would be banned as a group. You need to have a very low opinion of the democratic process and political rights to think that a "black tea party" would be outlawed.
However, it does make you think a little about how the media would portray such a group and whether present "tea party" supporters would join with a "black tea party" or if they would be seen as a threat.
I have to admit that it is a thought provoking piece- well done on his part. I especially like that he posed the questions without demanding that you arrive at any particular conclusion... I didn't care for the beginning where he had stated that the tea party is made up of armed racists (that seemed a little over the top) but the rest- the rap was well done.
