    I think certain artists like Erykah Badu and Jill Scott and freeway and Beanie Siegel and even Phillies on Tracy Lee should definitely be on the list every year. By the way I have a thing for Miss koshy, nuff said

      Well I can tell you out of all the performances she had the only one that was not lip synced... nearly every other performance was lip synced. She did her performance remotely from another location so maybe it was not recorded by the Roots?
      It is sad cuz it was an amazing performance and the only reason I am searching this whole vid. So lame.... when they live streamed and i saw it was all lip synced i was pretty disappointed in the roots

    Black Lives Matter is a communist movement designed to destroy the black family. They open they say on the website to remove fathers from the home and they want to destroy the nuclear family which is the exact issue in the black communities. Do not support them!

    Y'all. The word Picnic comes from a 17th century french phrase. Came to this country through New Orleans. can be surmised that hen creole was finding its linguistic feet, the phrase was co-opted by the domestic terrorism of Jim Crow. The thought that the word has its origins in lynchings simply means you've believed a lie perpetuated by racism. Yes, many lynchings took place in picnic settings. But watermelons are a west african fruit. and yet somehow that too got transformed into a tool for perpetuating racist ideas.
    do the work to chisel away at the destructive myths which have co-opted/encrusted our words and culture.

    Yall know the word “picnic” came from a Lynching party.

    • Brandon Burton
      Brandon Burton 5 أيام قبل

      nope. started in france. came here through new orleans. lynchings often happened in white communities in picnic settings. word doesnt have its origins there though. the evolution of linguistic patterning (especially in pidgin languages) historically tells us that words are often requisitioned by oppressive forces to further repress a group of people. so it's our responsibility to destabilize the power structure by understanding where the words actually come from instead of believing what the oppressor dictates.
