Normally the Sunday morning talk video is of some random preacher dropping divine knowledge in a church or so-called religious environment. Well, this week allow me to deviate from our regularly scheduled religious programming. Instead, allow me to introduce to some and present to others the Rev. Dr. Michael Eric Dyson! Heralded as one of the most well known African American Public intellectuals our time, Professor Dyson needs no introduction to most people who read this blog. However, if by chance you've never heard him speak or preach, read something he wrote, or seen him on CNN, MSNBC, and Real Time with Bill Maher, your about to witness a treat.
In this clip Dr. Dyson (also known as MED) rhetorically baptizes listeners in his poetic waters at MOS DEF's poetry jam. This clip is classic for primarily two reasons. First, it displays Dyson's rhetorical genius. And secondly, simply because its HOT (meaning not lame or cultural cheesy). I mean, the line "I write books like niggas write hooks" is ridiculously beautiful. Anyhow, let's listen to and learn from the Intellectual MC our time. Enjoy
