Oakland, CA Spoken Word artist Prentice Powell performs “The System” on Arsenio Hall. Here is yet another piece of beautiful art that puts on display the truths of our ironic system that was built for failure. It’s very annoying to me that said truths are only appreciated when told by comics and poets. A few rounds of applause and then everyone is back to ignoring all what was exposed only a moment ago. The System’s grip on us is strong, indeed. Enjoy.
