Recently Prince EA has had a lot of amazing press such as the Queen Latifah Show and The Blaze TV. He has also got some bad press for how painfully honest and candid the lyrics are. Here at Project Kinect, we know that positive social change sometimes is difficult. Equality for all and human compassion in the technology age is difficult. All the states that now accept and promote gay marriage took work. What is happening in Ferguson is just the tip of the iceberg of what inequities are in our country. The fight and work though that those demonstrators are doing is part of the walk towards positive social change. Again. This walk is difficult.
We commend and support Prince EA for his honesty, his ability to bring this conversation to a new venue, and most importantly, how transparent he is with his hopefulness. All is not lost and he acknowledges this. Prince EA just warns us that we are in some very dangerous territory. He also reassures us that he is not suggesting we find the polar opposite. In a recent Facebook Post, he said, “You need not delete your social networks or destroy your cell phones, the message is simple be balanced, be mindful, be present, be here.”
Project Kinect challenges you to listen to his lyrics and digest them. What do they do to you? How are you charged? Whether you are angry or inspired, what action could you take next? Please leave your answers to these questions in the comment section.
