Are there any cool ways to remember Bob Marley?
Reggae legend Bob Marley died thirty years ago today of melanoma. Is there any way to remember the man without seeming like a huge d-bag?
Let’s run down the options:
»Smoke pot: We’re not saying don‘t do this, but we’re also saying that you should have some self-respect.
»Listen to "Jamming": Not recommended. This is every frat star’s first choice of Marley tune.
»Listen to "Soul Shakedown Party": Recommended! If you really want a feel-good Marley party song, this is the one to choose:
»Embrace the ‘Pan-African’ movement of Marley idols like Marcus Garvey: Good idea, though if you’re white you might maybe want to tone down the "back to Africa" stuff. It could get misconstrued.
»Oppose apartheid: Maybe a little too late for that? But definitely stand up against injustice.
»Celebrate the concept of "One Love": Couldn’t hurt!
