All The Silence Is Worse Than All The Violence

This video is an awesome break from all of the ass-shaking (the girl in the video is actually wearing a LONG SKIRT?!). It hearkens back to Tupac's lyrics, offering social commentary on everything from Jersey Shore to the War on Terror. The video speaks to the discourse in the West right now, the constant consuming of crap, and the fear we as citizens experience when critiquing social and governmental institutions. I watched Lupe Fiasco speak on a latenight talk show, and he offered genuine sentiments of protest and concern for the state of our world. It seems to be more than just a hipster bent for publicity's sake. Check out the video, and let me know what you think.
