And you know what really gives him away? After he says "YUP" and starts to speak again, he shifts his chin and jaw side to side. He did that all the time. Many do, but it was a tell for me that it was him. Not that it clearly looked like him. But it's so great to see so many of his mannerisms there at age eleven.

For me, it was the eyes and smirk that I instantly recognized as Prince's.

That too, and the way he sorta looked down while being asked the question, and answering. It reminded me of the Sheridan video.

The best part is that his mother and Andre's mother worked in education at the time. So even then, his perspective was one that not every kid had. Andre said on his social media that "yep, that's the dude I met in gym class on the first day."

This was the first image I went to...had to do a side by side. Shot by Afshin and in his book.

Could you imagine if Prince would have let loose with an eleven-year-old Prince scream into the mic?

Wasn't the clip a bit longer ? There's also a guy named Kitchen...

Would love to see more concerning the teachers strike subject of that paril day, 1970.

Little Prince was so spot on in his replies and pretty well involved for a 11yo it seems.

As a time document, it can be an addition to understand more where he comes from.

At least imho.

Cause he seems such a normal and very responsive happy kid.

The complete opposite of the introverted silent superstar (and sort of a tiran in the studio) he bacame in his adult life...

What a contrast.

(Though this are just mere seconds of film, i know, difficult to analize of course.)

.
On Youtube, there are two WCCO/CBS Minnesota videos, the original news item as well as a video on the research work. Both feature footage of the young Prince Nelson:

You think his responses were "spot on" and "pretty well involved"? First he says teachers need an education too. What the hell does that even mean? Then he says they deserve a raise, which is fair enough, but there's nothing special about that. It's just repeating a super generic and obvious statement he heard grown-ups say.

To be clear, I understand that he was only 11 and I'm not faulting his responses. Anyone who critisize his responses is a fool. But at the same time, that doesn't mean we have to make them out to be great responses and give them more credit than they deserve. He was just a young kid *understandably* parroting what he'd heard grown-ups say. That doesn't deserve scorn, but it also doesn't deserve praise. It just is what it is.

Oh brother, there always has to be 1 in the bunch.


Can't you just be happy that we got to see an unseen video of Prince at approx 11 years old?


I ask why? Why, is there criticism of something so simple?


And yet you are faulting his responses, and that must mean you are a fool...by your own words.


Why is it so fucking hard to enjoy something, without picking it the fuck apart?


This is why this place has gone fucking down hill and everybody fucking left it. Damn!

See that question mark at the end of the first line? THAT AND EVERYTHING FOLLOWING IT IS TRACKING. I've posted before how important it is to remove that garbage.

Please do in the future (or edit your OP).

He is clearly attracted to the camera.
Strange that he didn't tell about that in his memoirs. But if IRC it goes only up to 1969?
Did this footage actually broadcast on tv at the time?

I did not criticize Prince or fault his response. In fact, I explicitly wrote the opposite. I said that "Anyone who criticizes his responses is a fool" and that his response "doesn't deserve scorn".

It's true I also said we shouldn't go to the other extreme and act like he said something super insightful. But that's not the same as faulting or criticizing his responses. Do you not understand the difference? It's not a binary where something is either insightful or terrible with no inbetween.

I want to make sure I understand your point...

I wrote "Anyone who critisize his responses is a fool" and that his response "doesn't deserve scorn."

In your mind, that makes me "jealous" of Prince? You see that as me trying to make myself sound "bigger"? But in fact, you believe I look "smaller" for saying that no one should critize Prince's responses?

That's an interesting intepretation.

Don't try to lie your way out of it.

This is part of your statement:

But at the same time, that doesn't mean we have to make them out to be great responses and give them more credit than they deserve.
