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.

The Criminalization Of Black Youth And Behavior

This won't be a long post.

Can you now see how America, along with the help of mainstream media has criminalized Black youth as well as what can be considered 'Black behavior'?

From non-violent demonstrations to attending a graduation pool party, it seems that certain folk see the gathering of Black youth as a criminal element participating in criminal behavior, so it has to be policed accordingly.

My sister works in McKinney, TX and lives a stone's throw from where this incident took place. My nieces are 5 and 8 and my nephew is 12. This shit just got personal.

All those Black folk LIVE in that neighborhood, so no one 'didn't belong'.

I play chess, not checkers...

You fucks with mine... Anticipate what the next move will be.
