Public Enemy still has Flavor – Chuck D shares his truth (Video)

The phrase there is no Public Enemy without Flavor Flav rings louder today than ever before. At the top of March Public Enemy aligned themselves with politician and presidential candidate Bernie Sanders for a rally. Flavor did not agree and had his attorney Matthew Friedman issue a cease and desist order.

“While Chuck is certainly free to express his political view as he sees fit — his voice alone does not speak for Public Enemy,” the letter states. “The planned performance will only be Chuck D of Public Enemy, it will not be a performance by Public Enemy. Those who truly know what Public Enemy stands for know what time it is, there is no Public Enemy without Flavor Flav”

“Flav … has not endorsed any political candidate in this election cycle. … The continued publicizing of this grossly misleading narrative is, at a minimum, careless and irresponsible if not intentionally misleading,” Friedman added in the letter. “It is unfortunate that a political campaign would be so careless with the artistic integrity of such iconoclastic figures in American culture.”

This cease and desist prompted Chuck D of Public Enemy to essentially kick Flavor out of the group.“Public Enemy and Public Enemy Radio will be moving forward without Flavor Flav,” the hip-hop legends said in a brief statement Sunday. “We thank him for his years of service and wish him well.”

Chuck D of Public Enemy on The People’s Party

Today April 1, 2020 the biggest April Fool’s joke has surfaced. Not only is Flavor Flav not kicked out of the group, Flav and Chuck are working on a new project entitled The Enemy Radio with a song called “Food as a Machine Gun” Chuck D made this announcement on The People’s Party podcast with Talib Kweli “Im not saying it’s a hoax, Im saying that the original intention is to get your attention.” said Chuck D

Public Enemy is still intact and you know what, there is no Public Enemy with out Chuck D and Flavor Flav. Do you feel played? Are you relieved Public enemy is still a group with Flavor Flav?

Jessie Jackson says Native Americans are the lowest on the totem pole – endorses Sanders for president

Civil Rights activist and Operation Push founder Jessie Jackson let his voice be known today by endorsing Bernie Sanders for president of the United Sanders Jacksons endorsement of Sanders comes the day after a rally held for the presidential candidate at Grant Park in Chicago. Sanders rally drew about fifteen thousand supporters.

“With the exception of Native Americans, African Americans are the people who are most behind socially and economically in the United States and our needs are not moderate,” Jackson said in a statement the Sanders campaign released Sunday morning. “A people far behind cannot catch up choosing the most moderate path. The most progressive social and economic path gives us the best chance to catch up and Senator Bernie Sanders represents the most progressive path. That’s why I choose to endorse him today.” said Jackson

Jacksons endorsement does not come without requests. Jackson mentioned that Sanders committed to 13 different issues that he would consider. Sanders has committed to appointing a Black Woman to the Supreme Court and adding more Black women to the democratic ticket this fall. These commitments also include free tuition at public colleges and universities.

Sanders announced the endorsement on ABC’s This Week after George Stephonapoulos pointed out Biden’s wins and the overwhelming support he is getting from the democratic candidates who dropped out of the race.

“It’s no secret, George. You know politics in this country. We’re not going to get the most support of elected leaders, not most governors, not most senators,” Sanders responded. “But we are winning the support of grassroots America because we have an agenda that speaks to working people.” 

Jackson has “been a leader in helping to transform this country, an aide to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., so we’re proud,” Sanders said.
