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.

Not Yet Free


By the time you read this, Wesley Snipes would have been in jail for at least 24 hours on a misdemeanor conviction.

I hope you caught that.

And he's not actually charged with what you think either.

But if I hear one more brother or sister make a joke about this man without doing even a tiny bit of research (cause public trials, minutes and notes of charges and testimony is public record), I'mma smack some damn body.

A misdemeanor charge that gets you 30+ months in a federal prison. If Wesley can get got, imagine what can be done to your stankin' ass!

Imagine that...

Here is where stereotypes and media manipulation comes to play. Not to mention a little envy (have sisters forgiven him for his 'disloyalty'?).

It isn't about someone being taken down as much as it goes to show that they still look at black folks as prey...
