This video was created to inspire young at-risk African-Americans not to fall prey to some of the problems they face in society. The "Master of Darkness" represents that abstract concept of evil that has the potential to reside in the consciousness of mankind.
This video shouldn't be used to divide people (Black & White).
This video shouldn't be used to criticize all aspects of hip-hop.
This video shouldn't be used to allow society to escape from their responsibility to help with financial & academic support.
If used properly, this video will allow our youth to see some of the horrific conditions that their ancestors fought through, and some of the horrific conditions they face today.
The use of the images of Richard Pryor and NAS, were selected to show how we have publicly displayed the word over the course of time. Richard Pryor, before his death, had gone on record to publicly denounce his use of the word, and the Rapper NAS (one of the few socially conscious rappers ) intentions of wearing the jacket had nothing to do with the glorification of the word. I have enjoyed some of Pryor's masterful story telling and I have also enjoyed some of the thought provoking music from NAS.
