Passover

Since Prince’s death yesterday I’m learning more about the man. Sure he was a great musician and a very talented songwriter but there are a few other things about him that I didn’t know before yesterday. Last year Prince did that concert in Baltimore and he released a new song in the wake of the rioting that took place in that city after Freddie Gray’s death at the hands of the police. What I didn’t know was that Prince went a step further and donated money to local Baltimore non-profit organizations that work with disadvantaged youths.

It wasn’t the first time he was so generous either. He privately donated money to the family of Trayvon Martin. Apparently he was one of those people who gave money away but didn’t want any publicity for his good deeds. (Which is actually quite refreshing for a celebrity of Prince’s stature.)

There is one more thing about Prince that I have to mention here mainly because a year ago I wrote a post titled Why Kim Kardashian and Her Family Need to Just Go Away and that rant remains among my most read posts. Prince was also among the many who have zero respect for Kim and her attention whoring family. Here’s a video of Prince throwing Kim Kardashian off of the stage during one of his concerts.
