Round 2?
February 07, 2017 09:53PM
Just wondering if it will be a slow release of other artist or if there will be a 2nd round of names dropped at once.? Just asking. (and no BV I am not scared of either outcome just asking)

back in the day i played college basketball, and in our conference were some schools located in eastern washington/oregon.

normally after road games, we could roam about the town take in the sights.. all that was a BIG no-no when it came to our
games in eastern washington/oregon. in fact after these games we needed an official escort back to the hotel..

so i guess i am having a hard time understanding this whole klan scenario you are referring to.

meaning, the klan and other similar groups are right in your backyard, but yet you moved your family directly into
that area. knowing full well who you were dealing with..
but now since trump is in office you are concerned for your family??

surely living in an area consisting of 3% black people, you would know the potential is there for some 'racist' comments, actions.. especially
with the klan/neos right across the bridge.. but yet you moved your family right in their sights ?? WAY before trump was even saying "youre fired"
?? now the klan is a concern for you??

come on...

BV I was kidding please just let my thread live.. I will answer you for the sake of loving to talk...

so I didn't move my family anywhere I have live within the same area almost all of my life. I currently live less than 1 mile from where I lived as a youth. "White people" don't scare me. It is pretty much all white here.. more Asian and more Mexican for sure than when I was a youth but pretty much all white. I don't worry about the majority of people. I grew up around skin heads and idiots like that. I am sitting next to an idiot right now as we speak. For the most part none of these people bother me and I don't worry about my life and my future. I don't really worry about my kids future. i worry for those who can't defend themselves that this latest "wave" will find them having to deal with some unpleasant realities. Fortunately for me my kids have a bunch of diverse friend. Iraq, Somalia, Iran, Puerto Rico, Hawaii.. all over the globe. I worry that young people will have to deal with a world less welcoming than I did. it isn't the Klan coming to burn a cross.. it is a kid not getting invited to a B Day party because of who they are. it is what that will mean in 10 years.. 20 years. I don't worry about race.. race is small. Class is certainly bigger. I worry about access to education.. or having the education that is accessible be decent. Serious issues not someone trying to hang me from a tree. Not someone burning a cross in my lawn.. IF they tried they would have 20 armed households within a block resisting them. I don't worry about me.. not any more.

As to why you had to deal with all of that.. those places (and no not everyone) lack exposure to diversity. They think the Boogie Man is coming for them.... I have been to all of them... and enjoyed them all. .There are creepy racists there.. I just don't worry about them. Like i said, I don't worry about me. I have a belief in the Almighty that is greater than that small fear.

So now... about Round 2??? BV do you have any hopes and wishes?? artists yet to be named?

I'm not aware of the festival having ever announced artists one-at-a-time, so look for another 'round' in a couple of weeks.....

these days i just stick to my old time rub-a-dub favorites..

sinbad
john wayne
madoo
etc

i come to find conscious artists from marley onward are full of inconsistent, rehashed messaging ..

ray ray ray ray ray ray............ straight bottom feeder focus and priorities.. marcus garvey is crying in his grave.. he gave his life for this ?? and this is why the equal rights and justice thing is totally lost on me when the message comes from these artists... they cant beyond the freakn he-said-she-said school yard business..
entertaining to a fault..

you would have thunk that once Vybz went to prison the rest of the Dancehall would have woken up... guess not.

so as to round 2... is there any sort of timeline for the announcements?
Re: Round 2?

No set date as of yet Ninja. I said "in a couple of weeks" 8 days ago, so you can do the math. If I was Carnac the Magnificent, I would guess February 27th but, alas, I'm no Johnny Carson impersonator....

I don't think I saw that.. thank you Carnac
