  • Justice and Peace

    I used to fight over colors I used to fight over territory to hustle on I used to fight over disrespect I thought I was hard I thought I was like that I thought I was a man, but deep inside I was emotionally distressed, mentally depressed. I was cold; I was just-ice I was in a state of imprisonment within myself In my prison I had fights with me I had constant lockdowns I felt all alone, with thoughts of homicide, suicide and many other violent injustices. I believed I was a victim of... READ MORE

  • Oath to Mission Statement

    I hereby take this oath . . . I remember reciting those words with aggression. With this oath I had no idea what I was really committing to. I had no ideas of the lives I was preparing to put at risk, including my own. I never believed or imagined speaking against this oath. On March 29, 2000, at 12:31 am a boy joined the United Blood Nation. My permission was given in the form of excuses such as there was no love at home, I needed family, and the list goes on. I told myself that I would... READ MORE

  • Roadblocks in your Life?

    Roadblocks are distractions. The things that keep us from moving forward. I’m not talking about you driving down I-95 and there is a crowd of state troopers waiting on the exit ramp. Then you have bigger problems. Imagine riding down that same road and instead of seeing that exit sign, there is a sign that reads “Prostitutes.” I don’t mean literally, but if you are riding down a road and this is what’s on your mind, it’s a roadblock. Now, if pimping was the... READ MORE

  • Medical Neglect in Federal Prison

    I’m sure you’ve heard about punishment in prison, whether it be prisoners assaulted by guards then receiving an assault charge in order for staff to explain your injuries or prisoners left, handcuffed and shackled, in an empty cell for days. Well, imagine the lack of medical attention in prison. Medical neglect is the norm in prison. I’ve witnessed guys suffer from kidney stone infections and guys who have been stabbed over a dozen times be expected to cuff-up while... READ MORE

  • GAME: Good At Manipulating Everyone

    Quaheem “Ox” Edwards (United States Penitentiary Tucson) Growing up, I was always taught I needed some form of GAME to get what I wanted. To have GAME was considered to be a good thing. Now I realize I was misled. Today I believe GAME is only necessary for the unqualified. GAME fits those with insecurities who feel the need to create an illusion to get what they want. GAME masked who I really was. GAME gave me the freedom to be anyone but myself. Below are a few areas in life I... READ MORE

  • Advice on Understanding Others

    In the past I would not hesitate to judge people. I would not hesitate to voice my opinion with considering the feelings of the next person. Before, I would use my perception as a reason to put up this wall. I used to think that being blunt was part of being real. I never gave others a chance. Then I began to take a step back and focus more on myself, checking the man in the mirror. The truth is I have flaws. The time I spent pointing out the gray areas in others was my way of deflecting. I... READ MORE

  • 5 Male Character Flaws

    1.) Arrogance It is great to have confidence in yourself. Arrogance is over the top. This unhealthy attitude will push people away from you, which will in return close doors of opportunity. While confidence is a sign of self-esteem, arrogance can imply that you are insecure or unsure of yourself. 2.) Control Freaks Many men long to be in control, and will even refuse the helping hand of others if it means they will lose a degree of control. The need to be in control, again, can lead to many...

  • Thoughts of a Man

    I have always had my own perception of the type of individuals who lived up to the title of a man. One is not a man simply because he is over the age of twenty-one. It is true, according to webster’s Dictionary, a man is an adult, sir, gentleman, a male. But there are certain duties that come with being a man that I feel define a man. Men are responsible. Men not only have a team to hold him accountable, he holds himself accountable. Men are fathers. Not just because the part he plays in... READ MORE

  • Closing the Door: Gangs, Prison and a New Life

    Just a few months ago I sat in my cell looking ahead to the day when I will return to society. And, while envisioning new life, being around family and freely living without the fear of looking over my shoulder, I had to honestly ask myself am I really ready? Physically, the answer was easy. But I knew I second guessed myself mentally. After spending the past sixteen years as an active gang member, I was stuck straddling the fence. Here in the Challenge Program at United States Penitentiary... READ MORE

Those who are still out there getting it are slow. Now for those of you who are just out there, in today’s time, conspiracy is real and it is easy to be found guilty by association. 2. Gangs The government has been at work for years trying to equate gang members to terrorists and make and have both subject to the same laws. So if... READ MORE
