Some Fact Changing to Fit a Narrative.
9 February 2019 | by ashleybe03See all my reviews

Just wanted to say this about the part about Jesse Belvin. They said someone 'slashed the tires' and killed him. Not true, his driver fell asleep and the driver had been fired by another musician because he kept falling asleep while driving. Don't change fact because it makes your personal narrative, of which you weren't even alive for, sound better. Racism was in the south back then NO DOUBT but don't lie about this man being murdered. Also Sam Cooke liked LOTS of women and prostitutes. Just like Elvis liked underage girls. Let's look at Thurgood Marshall and there is a true fighter of the civil rights who put his life on the line defending innocent black men. Just saying let's not preach too much about a man who had so many sins and turn him into a saint. This man a saint was not
