Chuck D talks Race, Rap, and Reality at Eckerd College

I could tell you that Chuck D is funnier than you might expect him to be. I could tell you that he is simultaneously a commanding presence and a humble man simply living out his plan. I could remind you that he does not mince his words and has very little problem speaking truth to power.

I wanted to show you Wednesday night’s Race, Rap, and Reality event but the powers that be wouldn’t allow it.

Unfortunately an Eckerd College employee informed me that the “media” was not allowed to take video. He didn’t say anything about audio, though, so I’m choosing to “fight the power” by sharing this with you.

Let this play in the background of whatever you are doing today, so Chuck can help you figure out whether you want to be a useful tool or a toy. Which one are you?
