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.
—Miguel de Unamuno

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.
