Keep Ya Head Up created ***messymandella*** and the reason she is who she is now! Maybe that is a positive for some and a negative for others but the truth is always unwelcomed. It is easier to hate those that want to help than to envision life as the way it was in 1996 and still in 2014, and take part in a change. Tupac told me and others to “Keep Your Head Up” because we do have, as he predicted “a race of babies that hate the ladies!” That is the truth we are fighting for equality and love but are we required to not speak our mind? Remember this song and know that a strong man wants a strong woman. A weak man only wants someone he can control. If Tupac is telling you “To Keep Ya Head Up” damn what anyone else tells you! Real men love Tupac and respect women. They have listened and know how we should be treated. He will show you love!

“Like most poor people in the United States, I have no voice. The Black press and the progressive media, as well as Black civil rights organizations, have historically played an essential role in the struggle for social justice. We should continue and expand that tradition. We should create media outlets that help to educate our people and our children, and not annihilate their minds. I am only one woman. I own no TV stations or radio stations or newspapers. But I believe that people need to be educated as to what is going on and to understand the connection between the news media and the instruments of repression in America. All I have are my voice, my spirit and the will to tell the truth. But I sincerely ask those of you in the Black media, t hose of you in the progressive media and those of you who believe in truth and freedom to publish my story.’ -Assata Shakur
