    Marley Reggae soul music for people with soul, Bob the man.

  2. The best thing about Reggae is it always has a message that every person can relate to. Thanks Ziggy Marley.

    • @Margaret Nicol yes love love love me some Ziggy and charming just like dad. One Love

    • you don’t know real Raggae then.. Cause Raggae is Roots music about the ills of an injust society.. its always about the upliftment of the Marginalized Black People in the Diaspora.. Music is music by Reggae and Hip Hop real Hip Hop are very similiar in their messaging..

    • @Niqui H Who you to tell me what I know. You need to stop with all that half stepping.

      @Niqui H Some of us may not have the experience but listening to Reggae can help built empathy. Nothing wrong with that. Other experiences can be lifted with the sounds of hope and perseverance too.

      @Niqui H You forgetting that Bob was a short haired, good Catholic boy in his mama’s house in Jamaica? It wasn’t till he went to New York that he found Rastafarian’s and joined them.

      Yes vote for Biden who was against bussing and for keeping segregation alive. And also helped write the 94 crime bill.

    • @gunnarsmusicandtravels To both of which he acknowledged, held himself accountable, admitted regret: and resulted in changing is heart and mind.. Cancel culture cannot defeat a heart that knows love, suffering, loss, empathy and forgiveness. A new & foreign concept for those who celebrate & support a self serving, hate filled racist. Not to late to change..

      @Amy Elizabeth in addition his vice president just called him racist a few months ago in the primaries. Shows that something is up.

    • @gunnarsmusicandtravels She accused him of supporting segregated busing in CA which we learned impacted her life directly. He didn’t deny it: rather, he admitted it. The fact that his change of heart and mindset and sincere regret was accepted by Sen Harris demonstrates that people can be held accountable, change for the better and be forgiven. If she can move on and move forward, then w cersinly can as well. Don’t start up another unfounded conspiracy theory as your defense. It shows both a lack of wisdom and compassion.

      @Amy Elizabeth lol change of heart when it fits their political plans. Also remember when Trump threw an innocent black man in jail that was freed a time later and given $13 million in a settlement oh wait that was, Kamala hen she was in charge out in California. but I am curious to learn about Trump’s latest treatment if it was used with fetal tissues. Anyway I work overnights GTG either way prepping for the upcoming depression weather it’s him or biden (who I personally believe will not be in power long if so, and kamala will take over). Depression coming just a question of how many years away now have good day.

  9. Trump’s lies and incompetence have turned America into the world’s covid epicentre and wrecked the thriving economy he inherited. Vote him out!

      Yes vote for Biden who was against bussing and wanted to keep everybody separated and keep segregation and also helped writing the 94 crime bill.
