Version 2.0

Culture, healing, politics and bullshit - Not necessarily in that order

The general, socio-political and very personal rantings and ravings of a hip hop head from the hood hustling for change... Of himself.

You all know me and are aware that I am unable to remain silent. At times to be silent is to lie. For silence can be interpreted as acquiescence.

Nia

To make our collective vocation the building and developing of our community in order to restore our people to their traditional greatness.



Nope.


I didn't forget to write, but you've heard so much from me so far. I noticed from my counters that I got a lot of hits and a lot of you have read my words, and I ain't mad that few have commented so far.


I was just wondering what you guys were doing in the spirit of Nia to restore said greatness.

I'll expound later.


By the way, that's my Mother and I hanging out and bonding yesterday. I can't do anything constructive for my people if I can't build with my family first. They are my everything. In order to become instrumental in this movement and become an advocate for change, one has to start somewhere and for me it will start with family.

I'm with you on the family thing. I learned many lessons while back home in JA about family, both good and bad.

Have a safe new year.

It's so nice and responsible of you to think of your family first... You are quite right about Family being the first preference in each case...

And, we share the same name; isn't it kool!
