When i was 15 i was watching dragonball z, waiting for rap city to come on. DBZ which is one of my all time favourite shows always started at 9:00pm and Rapcity
started at 9:30pm. So in tradition fashion everyday i would watch both, entertaining my interests in many aspects for example: Goku (main character of DBZ) would entertain my super hero interest with his new super sayian strength saving the world from danger and terror. Then my material interest would be set by seeing the newest cars, and most expensive jewellery with the hottest girls in rap music videos. Now this one time in particular they had a Tupac Special meaning half an hour of tupac vidoes, now this was approx. 9 years after his passing so he had a fair amount of music videos made. Looking back i dont recall being impressed with many of his videos due to the fact that they were a little out dated, although his lyrics and swag still moved people the same. One of the last songs they played was titled Keep ya head up, by 2pac and this song just expresses Pac's feelings about how we treat women in society and encourages women to keep their heead up and anyone in the struggle in general to keep they head up. In the third verse i believe he says " When it rains it pours, they got money for wars, but cant feed the poor." At the time i didnt fully understand why spending money was a bad thing let alone spending it on war. Then i started to ask questions like what war is tupac talking about ? and where is this war being fought? who is fighting these wars ? and how much money is being spent on war ? Because i can guarantee i can go to any city in the world and find people who do not share the same standard of living we have. At first i thought that line has to be directed to the Government of the U.S, but i looked again and U.S is not the only country spending money on war and fighting wars even though U.S is involved in practically all war issues in the world. U.S alone does not fund war, off the top of my head i can think of 4 nations involved in a war at the moment whether it be big or small Palestine, Isreal, Philippines, USA. Now not pointing any fingers i dont think any war is justified, but i do think all funds and assets going into war can be used to justify the means of war. This song Keep ya head up was released around 10 years ago and his line can be said and accepted as a universal truth all around the world to this day. So i think in order for this statement to become none universal and untrue we need people like you to ask questions similar to this and even if not answered stir and create a ripple affect to change the truth in tupacs words " they got money for wars, but cant feed the poor."

grammer or spelling.
Exactly right...there's plenty of $ if they need it...all they have to do is print more!
It's really just a control mechanism if you ask me.
They like poverty and war and keeping people down.Otherwise, how could they be superior?
We hold these truths to be self-evident...that all men are created equal.
uuuhhh, when do we start living that ideal?
