Ronald Savage

Savage was known as “Bee Stinger” when he was a youngster with the Zulu Nation back in the day. Now at 50, suffice it to say, those days are long gone. But to Savage, his days of suffering have gone on too long; and it’s time to air it out.

Savage has publicly accused Zulu Nation founder and Hip-Hop pioneer Afrika Bambaataa of sexually abusing him as a youth.

The Hip-Hop Nation is floored! Must watch (after the jump)… Must NOT jump to judgement. Savage is the only one talking here; but the talk is damning though. In the video above, he also makes a compelling statement in favor of lengthening (or even removing) the statute of limitations for bringing sex crime charges.

Peace be unto the people of Egypt, for they have been protesting a little over three weeks now. This ordeal will definitely be one for the history books. Hopefully, the future author(s) will report what is happening in truth. I still remember the lies my teachers told me. I didn’t appreciate that. It’s still Black History Month so, I wanted to contribute to the remembrance of those that fought for what was right. Truly, everyday Black History should be celebrated. Never forget.
