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.

Well Hello There...

You ever have a moment in life where things are so great that it keeps you from 'regular' stuff (like blogging)?

Well, I'm in that moment. I am in the process of detailing things, it's just taking more time than I thought.

Did you participate in the blackout last Friday? I did. Do you realize the power we have and can have by making this a regular occurance?

Are you coming with me to Washington DC on the 16th? Think about the timing of the march and the appointment of the new attorney general. What type of infuuence can we have on the sitting AG when it comes to justice for young black men, the hanging of nooses around America and interpretation of the law in our neighborhoods?

It might be time for the the so-called war on drugs comes to an end. Way too many non-weapon offenders are serving time when all they need is rehab and a P.O.

This AG will be already seated when whomever gets elected president...

We gotta have more cowbell...

Enough about our responsibilities and more about my pending mortgage and child care expenses in a moment.

Can anybody even describe what efforts are being made these days for the "war on drugs"? Seriously?

As for the blackout....I looked all over the news sites for a follow up story and didn't find anything. I even expected something "prolific" from Roland Martin after his commentary on more action and less talk.

I always participate in BlackOUts. Why? Cuz my azz ain't got no job. You know I'm broke.

It's funny cuz I have all these old posters and wall art that the Hubby did back in the dayz of millions of men, youths and so on.

War on drugs. Hmmmm.

I really missed my blogging while I was away. I understand. I'm easing my way back into the blogosphere. Hang in there.
