I see this all the time and never reblog it but…I had too
ass ass ass ass ass ass
ya’ll sure this is her? either way i like it
The name of Lauryn Hill’s breakout album was The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill but it now appears that the powers that be would like her to record a new album called The Re-Education of Lauryn Hill. After appearing in court for tax evasion, Hill was sentenced to three months in jail PLUS she must attend “counseling” due to her “conspiracy theories”.
According to the IBTimes, Hill told the court: “I am a child of former slaves who had a system imposed on them. I had an economic system imposed on me.” Furthermore, Hill also believes that artists are being oppressed by (what the article calls) “a plot involving the military and media”. Because of these statements, Hill was ordered to undergo “counseling”, which is a way of saying that she is mentally ill and that she needs some sort of re-programming session regain “sanity”.
In 2012, Hill published a thoughtful letter describing the corruption, the oppression and the control of the music industry and her desire to escape it. In one part of the letter, Lauryn states
“It was this schism and the hypocrisy, violence and social cannibalism it enabled, that I wanted and needed to be freed from, not from art or music, but the suppression/repression and reduction of that art and music to a bottom line alone, without regard for anything else. Over-commercialization and its resulting restrictions and limitations can be very damaging and distorting to the inherent nature of the individual. I Love making art, I Love making music, these are as natural and necessary for me almost as breathing or talking. To be denied the right to pursue it according to my ability, as well as be properly acknowledged and compensated for it, in an attempt to control, is manipulation directed at my most basic rights! These forms of expression, along with others, effectively comprise my free speech! Defending, preserving, and protecting these rights are critically important, especially in a paradigm where veiled racism, sexism, ageism, nepotism, and deliberate economic control are still blatant realities!!!”
(See my article entitled Lauryn Hill’s Tumblr Letter on the Music Business for the full letter).
wow, way to fucking delegitimize and pathologize the experiences of a Black woman by abusing mental health resources and language to avoid the real shit she brings up.
Fuck these bastards, Lauryn is a genius and practically the only mainstream musician truly worth a shit. I am not Black but I have lived in a predominately poor, Black area of the South for most of my life, and as such I have bore firsthand witness to everything Lauryn writes about and worse on a widespread scale. The people who are truly delusional and in need of an education are these political nutjobs (not just the radical conservatives either, but these colorblind “liberal” fools who have no comprehension whatsoever of racial psychology) who are attempting to punish her for speaking the truth. They’re just bourgie crackers who live the high life in their little [segre]gated communities. They have no clue what goes on outside of their little bubbles because they live detached lives of privilege and I hope they rot for this some day.
y pensar que ya no como/bebo nada de eso :/
