    Tupac was using vile language and preparing to fight someone on the set of Poetic Justice. Dr.  Maya Angelou was on set and here are the powerful words she employed to diffuse the fight which eventually made Tupac cry:

    "When was the last time that anyone told you that ‘it’s all for you,’ that we lived 300 years on the edge of a dime so that you can exist? When is the last time? Do you know that we stood on slave ship decks and stood on auction blocks and were hosed down like dogs for you, so that you can live?’
