  • Justice or Just-Us

    Our people are fell by gunshots; fourteen seconds, sixteen candles lit, and I don’t mean on a twelve-year-old’s birthday cake. You may think of it as a metaphor, but you know what I’m talking about, so you know what I mean. The brother said he couldn’t breathe, and you say this ain’t injustice or just-us! A paddy wagon ride ends with a dead brother with a broken spine. And you say this ain’t injustice or just-us! A traffic stop in Texas turns into an... READ MORE

  • My Peoples and Folks

    Big city, bright lights, Chicago that is — Now listen up, I’m talking to you my peoples and folks. Stand up and pay attention as I unfold a thought for our future mission. Put down your guns and take back your reality. We must unite as one because there’s too much killing, young lives lost. Black live$ matter in a broken criminal justice system. We are losing in many ways – drugs, guns, prison, and death. Each one destroys us mentally and physically; not a care of the... READ MORE

  • Where Were They?

    Where were they when you were released into the beast inside the belly of darkness- Afraid to open your eyes to face the sin that was all around, hearing the voices of destruction that seemed so far away yet so close, knowing that the time has come to face your host? Where were they when the tension was so thick you could lick out your tongue and taste the evil in the midst of your reach; As you clenched that homemade tool with your back pressed against the wall with no one to call, just...

  • Joe Champs from Chicago, Illinois

    My name is Joe “Sultan” Champs. I am 47-years-old and grew up in Chicago, Illinois. I was a member of a street organization, the Moorish Hajars, that is structured deeply in Islam. A chartered religion built off the principles of the Moorish Science Temple of America. At this moment I am 100% Muslim who follows the Sunna of Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) and no longer ascribe to the dead state of mind of my street life. I have outgrown that, and now I am focused on the... READ MORE
