Update on Professor Griff Interview:  To date, I have not heard back from Professor Griff or from his
friend Shawn.  Last week
Shawn called in to one of the discussion sessions in an attempt to set up an
interview with Professor Griff.  Professor Griff decided not to do the interview at that time.  We
tried to set up a time for the following day but Professor Griff decided not to.  I was then told that
they would get back to me.  I have not heard back from Shawn or from Professor Griff since.  I have
compiled 54 questions that I would like to ask Professor Griff live on air.  These questions are related
to the information presented within the addendum to Part 3B.  Hopefully we can set up an interview
soon.   Latest update listed below

Peace and love to all.

Wednesday, December 16th, 2010 Professor Griff Interview Update


Greetings to all, I have received many private emails from individuals who have sought to project
themselves as an intermediary as it relates to having Professor Griff on air for a radio interview.  
Some of these emailers have asked me for my phone number.  Some have even called into some of
our discussion sessions.

In that I have received many of these types of emails I am issuing a public announcement so as to
discourage such requests.  The following is a recent reply to such a request wherein an individual
who happened to be associated with Professor Griff contacted me and asked if I would be
interested in having him set up an unbiased dialogue with Professor Griff.  To answer outright I will
state the following, I am a grown man and I do not need an intermediary nor do I need my friends
or fans to make arrangements on my behalf.  Here is my reply, in full, to the individual who sought
to project himself as an intermediary; a response that can now be directed at all others who have
and will seek to project themselves as such:

Many have sought to play the role of intermediary in regards to Professor Griff and myself.  
Interestingly enough I have found that each person who has sought to be an intermediary has either
been affiliated with Professor Griff or happens to be friends with Professor Griff.  Therefore the
notion of such an intermediary conducting an unbiased dialogue is not only illogical but also
disingenuous.  Of course this all assumes that the notion of an intermediary is necessary in the first
place.

As a man I do not accept that an intermediary is necessary in these regards.  In other words, men
do not have other males speak on their behalf.  Men hold themselves accountable for themselves
and do not allow for other males to do what they should have the courage to do for themselves ie
“Call into this radio show and commit to an interview”.

As for your request for me to give you my phone number, understand that for me to give you my
phone number so that you can give it to Professor Griff is also illogical in that Professor Griff has
already posted physical threats against my family and I.  If Professor Griff would like to contact me
he can simply do as he has done countless times before and send me a private message via email,
post to anyone of my online outlets (facebook, twitter, myspace, youtube), or simply call into one
of my radio shows.  Having other males do this on his behalf is not acceptable to me.

Over the past week I have scheduled a slew of Discussions Sessions in hopes of providing Professor
Griff with many opportunities to call in and speak with me . The issue is not whether or not I am
willing to accept your supposed unbiased intermediary status.  In fact for you to suggest such an
arrangement and to pose the question “Are you willing?”  is merely your attempt to exclusively
place upon me the responsibility of making a dialogue manifest; as if I am the one who is
hampering the process in the first place.

As it relates to an interview with Professor Griff I have already done my part.  During last Friday’s
second discussion session Professor Griff was unwilling to commit to an interview date.  This has
been clearly documented and recorded in the archive.

At this time I am waiting to hear back from Professor Griff, a correspondence that was promised by
one of Professor Griff's representatives while Professor Griff himself listened in live.   If Professor
Griff truly wanted to speak to me then he should have called into the show.  He chose not to.  
Subsequently Professor Griff’s friend Shawn attempted to play the role of intermediary in an
attempt to schedule an interview with Professor Griff.  In the end Professor Griff chose not to call
in and chose not to schedule an interview for the following day.  This was Professor Griff’s choice,
a choice that has been archived on blogtalk radio under the title “Hip Hop the Hidden Hand and the
Degradation of Black Masculinity” Discussion Session #8.

This is important to understand in that it has been proposed that I was unwilling to have Professor
Griff on air.  Nothing can be further from the truth and anyone who wishes to understand exactly
what took place during that radio show is encouraged to hear for themselves by going into the
archive and listening to
“Hip Hop the Hidden Hand and the Degradation of Black Masculinity”
Discussion Session #8.

Towards the end of that discussion session Professor Griff backed out of a Saturday interview and
his friend Shawn promised to get back to me with another interview date.  I have not heard from
either Professor Griff or Shawn since.

But this is not without purpose in that this proves my general thesis concerning Hip Hop as a global
mind control program to enact the degradation of masculinity in general and black masculinity in
particular.  In fact, even the leaders of Hip Hop, the so called “conscious” rappers lack fidelity,
virtue, and honor; many of which were compromised decades ago.

Let us be absolutely clear that the real issue is whether or not Professor Griff is willing to answer
specific questions related to the factual and historically documented information that I present in
the Addendum to Part 3B of my lecture series.  These questions must be addressed by Professor
Griff exclusively.  Professor Griff's friends, fans, or affiliates should not and cannot do this for him.

I am sure that these emails are being compiled to be shared with Professor Griff and to be used to
formulate stratagems of diversion. However, as it relates to setting up an interview with Professor
Griff a simple yes or no will suffice.  This yes or no would be best issued from Professor Griff
himself.  I will continue to wait patiently.

Professor Griff Interview Update:
Professor Griff Historical Facts                Response from Professor Griff                Griff Interview Update
Friday, December 23rd, 2010 Professor Griff Interview Update


It has now been 2 weeks since Professor Griff's associate Shawn called into my radio show.  During
that radio show Shawn attempted to set up an interview with Professor Griff.  At the end of that
radio show Professor Griff backed out of the interview.  Shawn then told me that they would get
back to me with an interview date and time.  I have not heard from Shawn or from Professor Griff
since.  This, in and of itself, proves my point about Hip Hop; it is essentially a mind control program
used for the purposes of degrading masculinity in general and black masculinity in particular.  Within
this mind control program we find a lack of personal responsibility, integrity, and honesty.

The fact that Professor Griff did not call into that radio show and instead had Shawn call in on his
behalf is quite telling.  The fact that Professor Griff, who is 50 years old, backed out of an
interview claiming that he needed to consult "the elders" is quite telling.  The fact that Professor
Griff did not keep his word and provide me with a date and time for an interview is quite telling.  
All of these recorded facts are indicative of the degradation of black masculinity; a degradation
that Hip Hop has been employed to actualize.

Instead of facing critical questions as to his compromization circa 1990, Professor Griff has gone on
other radio shows expressing high levels of ultra-emotionalism, conjecture, and contradiction; going
so far as to issue more death threats and ultimatums to my wife Ayida.   A 50 year old so called
"conscious black revolutionary" issuing death threats and ultimatums to a pregnant mother of 4?

What kind of an example does this provide for young males?  What kind of an example of
fatherhood does this provide for young females.  Again, this proves my case concerning Hip Hop; a
"projected culture" dawning punctured ethics and fleeting morality ie. The Degradation of Black
Masculinity.

It is also interesting that Professor Griff has referred to my wife and I as "agents" without providing
any evidence or proof to support such a claim.  Instead of dealing with his compromization, circa
1990, Professor Griff has resorted to strategies of diversion and derision.   It must be understood
that true scholarship makes it absolutely necessary that evidence and proof be issued as
confirmation to any claim.  In my own work I am careful to support all claims made with conclusive
evidence and proof.  To do otherwise is not logical or scholarly.

In the absence of true intellectualism, in the absence of bona fied scholarship, in the absence of the
courage needed to face difficult questions as to his compromization circa 1990, Professor Griff has
resorted to name calling, physical threats, and counterfactual assertions.  A 50 year old so called
"conscious black revolutionary" issuing deaths threats while marketing his radio interview as "The
Assassination of Professor Griff?"  Interesting that Professor Griff has issued death threats to my
family and I on 4 separate occasions and yet we are to believe that he is somehow
a victim of
a
ssassination?  This speaks to Professor Griff's contradictory logic and further proves my general
thesis concerning Hip Hop and the Degradation of Black Masculinity.

As it relates to scholastic endeavors I hold others to the same standards that I hold for myself.  
Consequently, I fully expect others to support any claim or assertion made.  Therefore, the critical
question is whether or not Professor Griff can manifest any conclusive evidence or proof to support
his claim that my wife and I are agents
.

I can assert here that Professor Griff cannot and will not manifest conclusive evidence in that one
cannot prove a lie.  Furthermore, it is intellectually cowardice to seek to misdirect people's
attention from the real issues ie The Blackdraft Album Cover, Professor Griff's Contractual
Affiliations with Luke Records, The Pawns in the Game Music Video, Professor Griff's Continued
Death Threats Against My Family, etc.

The truth of the matter is that there is no conclusive, intellectual, scientific, or scholarly evidence
or proof to support Professor Griff's claim that my wife and I are agents.  We actually find such an
assertion to be laughable and childish.  Hearsay, conjecture, or ultra-emotionalism does not qualify
as conclusive, intellectual, scientific, or scholarly evidence or proof.  For Professor Griff to resort
to such an irresponsible, illogical, and morally depleted tactic further proves my point about Hip
Hop and the Degradation of Black Masculinity.

As is the case with all of my work I am careful to provide evidence and proof so that the viewer is
not led to believe in things that are not provable or true.  Throughout my work I make assertions
and provide evidence and proof that the viewer can consider and ultimately, by using their own
mental faculties, decide for themselves whether or not the assertions are true.  Professor Griff on
the other hand has, in fact, led many to believe in things that he has not actually proven with
conclusive evidence or corroborating proof.  A seminal example of this can be seen in Professor
Griff's unfounded assertion that my wife and I are somehow agents simply because I discovered
information that proves that he was compromised circa 1990.

It is important to understand that the standard for scholarship has been set so low that any proposed
claim can be accepted without proper and necessary intellectual process.  This level of intellectual
retardation has been promoted via Hip Hop for over 40 years now and is clearly exhibited in the
letters sent to me by so called "Hip Hop Scholars".  As is outlined in my lecture series "Hip Hop, the
Hidden Hand, and the Degradation of Black Masculinity", the ruling elite has carefully guided and
promoted "Hip Hop Culture" as a covert means of executing continued domination of, and
assimilation of, indigenous people.

Corporate/Contractually signed Hip Hop artists have in fact functioned as the overseers to such an
agenda.  In return for their complicity they are afforded flighty fame and relative financial stability.
They are also expected to prove their loyalty to their masters by paying a heavy price.  Moral
compromization, in part, being the down payment ie The Black Draft Album Cover.  This moral
compromization is one of the means through which the entertainment industry, which is nothing
more than the ruling elite's vehicle of global mind control, keeps its Hip Hop overseers in check.

It is these same Hip Hop overseers that the masses have unwittingly accepted as honorable and
proper leaders.  These are the pseudo leaders that continue to operate without respectable moral,
ethical, or intellectual condition.  These are the pseudo leaders who were compromised long ago.  
These are the pseudo leaders who grossly disrespect women and unborn babies sending messages
such as "Tell your pussy ass husband to call me".  And these are the pseudo leaders that continue to
indoctrinate new generations into degraded masculinity, all the while claiming to be about the
uplift of humanity.  The soundtrack to this degradation is Hip Hop.

Hip Hop was never promoted by the Hidden Hand to insight critical thinking, intellectualism, or
uplift amongst any particular demographic.  Hip Hop was promoted by the Hidden Hand so as to
maintain and fortify the ruling elite's social, political, intellectual, religious, and economic
dominance over any given demographic.

Most intriguingly, the individuals who participate in maintaining and fortifying this dominance are in
fact the compromised Hip Hop artists who perceive themselves as revolutionaries despite the fact
that they are or have been contractually owned and morally compromised by the same ruling elite
that they claim to be in defiance of.  They are, in fact, compromised.

Instead of owning up to their compromization, instead of admitting to their compromization and
reclaiming their honor, masculinity, and manhood, they engage in desperate acts of intellectual
cowardice by crying out "Agent" to anyone who exposes their historically documented
compromization.  Again, this proves my case concerning Hip Hop and the Degradation of Black
Masculinity.

I do have many questions that I had hoped to ask Professor Griff on air.  However, given that 2
weeks have now passed I am clear that an interview with Professor Griff will not be forthcoming.  
Let it be absolutely clear that it was Professor Griff who decided against being interviewed, a
decision that further proves my point concerning Hip Hop and the Degradation of Black Masculinity.

It a form of intellectual cowardice to dodge critical question as to ones compromization; a
compromization that I clearly outline with evidence and proof within the addendum to Part 3B of
my lecture series.  It a form of intellectual cowardice to go on other radio shows screaming "agent"
without any evidence or proof.  It is a form intellectual cowardice to continue to make threats
against my wife on such radio shows; telling my pregnant wife that she has 10 days to pack up our
children and leave her husband before her husband is assassinated.  What kind of standard for
manhood is this?

To all of you young males who happen to read these words I encourage you to ensure that you never
compromise yourself as a man and that you set a higher standard than what has been given to you
via Hip Hop and its overseers.  I encourage you to set a standard that is reflective of your true
power and potential.  I encourage you to seek to be well balanced, honorable, and ethically
centered at all times.

The standard for manhood that has been globally promoted via Hip Hop is extremely degraded and
has negatively impacted the quality of the lives of hundreds of millions of people worldwide.  Our
women deserve more than this.  Our children deserve more than this.  We all deserve more than
this and therefore we must reject such lowly standards of manhood; a standard that is clearly
exampled within Professor Griff's words and actions since the release of the Addendum to Part 3B;
words and actions that shed light on the fact that Professor Griff's compromization circa 1990 is an
issue that he has not resolved internally and therefore is unprepared to properly address publicly.

Young males understand that you are far greater than such lowly standards.  And I can tell you with
absolute certainty that you are far greater than Hip Hop.
