    Between the stuttering, I do believe that you, Dr. Ball, are one of the best communicator of the internal colony theory as intersected with media theory especially as it deals with hip hop/African musical culture, Pan-Africanism, and Black nationalism that we have at this moment. Nobody talks about the things that you do in the way that you do. This was a nice, succinct interview.
