Long and bizarre story, ended in tragedy and disgrace. I bring it up because of an incident that took place in West Oakland, pretty much in the stomping grounds of the bakery and family still running it after the founder's death in '03:

Bey and his honchos complained that Muslims should not be selling alcohol to other Muslims, presumably blacks in the area.
In regards to The Nation.
You have the Bey's and the El's.
In the El capacity, your roll is of scholar, diplomat, teacher etcc, pretty much a docile, laid back outlook on life..peacefull demeanor.
In the Bey capacity, your role is enforcer, discipline, warrior if need be. UpTight demeanor.
The secret to a long life. Is knowing when it is time to leave.
