Is Lauryn Hill an artist genuinely struggling against the oppression of external forces? Or merely another kooky victim of the pressures of fame? You can make up your own mind as you read her full press statement:

She should shut her racist ass up and pay her taxes.
No conspiracy here, just another rich ``tax the rich`` tax evader.

Or in a nutshell, a rich spoiled bitch mad she is no longer in demand. What a nut job! Years ago she said on (I think it was lettermen) she would rather see her kids burn alive than to sell another album to a white person. She should be exiled...

I have never heard of her before, and aside from today's video inclusion I doubt I ever will; however, that was a nice statement that if we do not want to be a party to war and killing we simply stop paying taxes.
I am happy to say that I have not paid any taxes in several years, 2008 to be exact; I have always filed but there was nothing to claim but "zero". I didn't file this year and I doubt I will given the fact this is "the end" for Babylon!
It is a restful feeling that I have done my part! You can blame me for the demise of the Union as I am a Free man! I even work for Free!
"For two or three years I was away from all social interaction. It was a very introspective time because I had to confront my fears and master every demonic thought about inferiority, about insecurity or the fear of being black, young and gifted in this western culture."
On numerous other occasions, she has denied saying anything remotely resembling the statement credited to her. In response to her critics, she offered: "What I did say was that I love my people, black people, and I will continue to make music for them."
Lauryn insists she wants people to understand that her goal to improve the self-love of young African-American women should never be confused with advocating racial supremacy. "There are a lot of young black girls who I meet in my travels who don't have a lot of self-esteem," she explains. "So if I communicate to them that they're beautiful, no white person should find fault in that. It doesn't mean that young white girls aren't beautiful, because they are just as beautiful."
