Nothing like an idea whose time has come.
Here's an update on the Revival, from the corners of the blogsphere that I try to patrol:
Kudos to self-described "ex-Black Panther, ex-convict, Blackosphere advocate for the accused (and) Christian community organizer" Eddie Griffin. (He's definitely not the comedic actor seen most recently in the regrettable Norbit.) Last Saturday he put himself in the path of the cultural violence directed against African-Americans by other African-Americans by joining a civil protest at a show featuring comedian D.L. Hughley.
Griffin feels Hughley should be held accountable for twisting the knife in the wound to the Rutgers women's basketball team. (No, the iMuss has NOT gone the way of media business as usual yet)
Check the Hughley U-Tubed appearance in question on the Tonight show last month.
So Griffin joined a group of religious and other leaders in a protest at Fort Worth's Bass Hall theater. While protesters outside chanted "D.L Hughley: No Double Standard," Griffin was one of a number who took seats inside the venue to perform some guerrilla theater. He got arrested, but the blow-by-blow in his blog says it was more than worth it.
A big hat tip for this news to the AfroSpear group of online activists. Check their post on this here, especially links at bottom to the coverage the Revival in Cowtown. That's where I found the following quote from protester Rev. Kyev Tatum. In what's become a running verbal gunfight, Hughley, called the faith-based protesters "clowns."
Said The Rev. Tatum:
We were called clowns, well, I'd rather be a "Clown 4 Christ" than to Degrade 4 Dollars.
Right said, Rev.
