I didn't get it, what's his issue with the Superbowl? Given what's happening with it this year made me wonder. I know the kneeling thing and the NFL issues but he didn't say that until further in.



And I was kind of hoping he'd corroborate what Tyka said, Oh well.



Nice interview.

—You mean the nutcase that stood up to certain friend of a first wife who has made racist comments.

I have discussed this before what influence did living in a house with a pimp have on him.

Agreed again. Now why would someone here want to talk crap over someone who posted on another board but doesn't even post here on the org? hmmm Hmmmm, makes me wonder....

Let me see if I can make it plain since you seem to be flummoxed by my comment. I responded to a comment made in reference to the interviewer in the article posted in the OP...on the Org. Last time I checked, that's my right. And, hopefully, you have more than my comment(s) to wonder about. OAN, exactly HOW do you know whether or not any particular person posts on the Org?

Yep there's no denying that prince was heavily influenced by pimp culture

Flummoxed? lol Hardly that, because you made yourself quite clear with that nasty little comment. Like Laura said, nothing wrong with her and nothing wrong with the article. There was no need to malign her. But it did make me wonder about some things....

Whatever. Both you and Laura are entitled to your opinions, as am I. And, you didn't answer my question.

I will answer the question. Mrs. Staggers has stated that she would never post on this board. I am pretty sure she has kept her word. Some of you have no clue how disliked Prince.org is in the fan community. eek

Okay. If she says so...but her work is on here, making it open to commentary.

I agree with you completely re commentary on anyone's work posted here, but just didn't see why the character slur was necessary. Regardless of what went on elsewhere there's no need to drag it over here.

We all have seen the racist comments of the other person and it is funny how that is of no concern to you. God forbid someone should have taken his ass to task for his B.S or Mayte for associating with him in the first place.

Laura, I have no problem with you, okay. So, don't take my comments personally. My remark has everything to do with MY unwanted interaction with one Aisha K. Staggers on LSA. She came at me like a CRAZED bully for the brief moment when I chose to post there, complete with cussing and name-calling. I soon felt like I needed a shower after that unforgettable experience. So, this has nothing to do with whatever racist comments she supposedly challenged. That's another matter entirely. Why do you insist on conflating?
