An anonymous reader writes "He was an innovator, he was an emancipator, he was an originator. The master of Funk James Brown died today. His hit song: I'm Black and I'm Proud changed the way people looked at themselves, both black and white. The song showed that lyrics and music and a song can change society.

He would have it no other way.
