Clay Cane Live’ Episode 79: August 6, 2013

Pay Homage: Happy Birthday, James Baldwin

image

The icon would’ve turned 89 today.  The image above is of James Baldwin on the cover of Time in 1963 … a black, gay man on the cover of Time in 1963.  Let that soak in… 

Baldwin was openly gay from the beginning. He knew there was no other option if he wanted to speak the truth. I find it a bit comical when we talk about celebrities who are paranoid to “come out.”  Baldwin used his differences to his advantage and became an icon.  

Like many black artists such as Paul Robeson and Nina Simone, once an artist is too conscious they are threatening. Baldwin was not only threatening to whites, but also threatening to blacks due to being openly gay and his views on religion. Baldwin believed African-Americans should worry less about their beliefs in Christ and worry more about their socio-economic status. Telling African-Americans to take their faith away from God and Christianity, which was at the forefront of the Civil Rights Movement, was beyond radical. 


Baldwin was a prophet, or as he would say, a witness. His writings changed the world and are still relevant today where race, sexuality and religion remain at the forefront of American politics. One cannot help but wonder what Baldwin would articulate on same-sex marriage, pop culture obsession, Trayvon Martin, President Barack Obama and more?  I have a feeling he would shut down all the pundits — including myself.  So all of you journalists, pundits, writers, aspiring writers, people who use words as a weapon—pay homage to the icon who paved the way…James Baldwin!

Baldwin on Christianity: “Because I was raised in a Christian culture I never considered myself to be a totally free human being.”

Baldwin on his father: 
“He was defeated long before he died because, at the bottom of his heart, he really believed what white people said about him.”

Baldwin on race: “That is part of the dilemma of being an American Negro, one is a little bit colored and a little bit white.”

Baldwin on life: “You have to go the way your blood beats.”

Ten Years Ago the No. One Song in the Country Was …

Exactly ten years ago, Beyoncé world domination began…

In her first solo single, the R&B-pop diva rocked number one on the Billboard Hot 100 and R&B charts ten years ago today.  The pelvic thrusting anthem was a global smash, topping the top of the charts in Ireland and the U.K. The song, which contained a horn sample from The Chi-Lites' 1970's “Are You My Woman (Tell Me So),” earned three Grammys and made Bey an official star.  

I would say, “Who would’ve thought Bey would’ve still been here ten years later!?”  But that’s a lie, whether you are a fan or not, most of us knew Bey was here to stay.  Check out the live performance below …

'Poetic Justice' Released 20 Years Ago Today

The Janet Jackson and Tupac romantic-dramedy hit theaters 20 years ago today.  And while we all love Damita and the late, great 2Pac, Poetic Justice was all about Regina King as Iesha.  Check out the famous clip below!

'Clay Cane Live' Episode 77: George Zimmerman Trial Aftermath

Heavy talk on the George Zimmerman trial.  Thank you to all of our listeners and callers who expressed their confusion, hurt and demand for justice.  And for those who believe race wasn’t an issue or we shouldn’t discuss it — as our guest co-host said who is a New York City public school teacher: “If I were a human being in this country, we wouldn’t have this discussion.  If I were viewed as an American, we wouldn’t have this problem.”

“People get used to anything. The less you think about your oppression, the more your tolerance for it grows. After a while, people just think oppression is the normal state of things. But to become free, you have to be acutely aware of being a slave.”

-Assata Shakur

 

Happy Birthday, Queen!
