I think it was featured recently in the 'Mr. Nelson on the North Side' documentary:

Looks uncannily like the last pic of him outside Walgreens Pharmacy. Afro, arms behind his back? generally apathetic. I bet he's thinking, why do I see no vanilla faces round here?

smh...he wouldnt be wondering about "Vanilla Faces"...that's North Minneapolis...its always been quite common to not see "vanilla faces" at public gatherings, or anywhere else in most of North Minneapolis, and its STILL that way here to this day...LOL...and Prince didnt grow up hanging out with white kids anyway...he hung out with Andre Anderson, Duane Nelson, Chazz Smith, Terrance Jackson, William 'Hollywood' Doughty, Morris Day, Paul Mitchell, etc... all melanated men, not"vanilla faces"... the vanilla faces came in to the picture later...MUCH later

Exactly!

Why would he, as a Black man living in north Minneapolis, worry about not seeing white people?! That's an ignorant answer.

And how does anyone know his mood is apathetic? There is zero evidence of that from a blurry, grainy pic from decades ago.

When he was outside Walgreens, he was in withdrawl from a drug addiction to opioids. He was the opposite of apathetic. He was dependant and highly interested in at least one thing.

Here he is wearing street clothes. At Walgreens he was wearing his Princesque clothes.

Someone may wanna get their eyeglass prescription filled... or get one, in general.

Yes that's who I meant. Prince was on that plane that got diverted to Algeria, Delta Air Lines. It started right there. What a firebrand. And this was before that time he was arrested for stealing a megaphone to try and air publicity for the Black Liberation Movement.

So you're saying people weren't thinking of "Vanilla Faces" when they listened to the radio?

Better revisit the reality of radio in those days.

yeah Fam...some of these people really need psychiatric care...the inherent ignorance and blatant stupidity has overcome several of them...its hard to believe they are/were ever Prince fans, by the way some of them have so much ingrained hate

He said in the memoir that his best friend was a Jewish kid

he also said, he's always hung out with white and black kids

So looks like we cannot even enjoy a Prince photo thread like we used to.
So now that it's posted and everyone sees it. It's going to be locked.
Because we just cannot have nice things

thanks 80tomato 4 sharing
