    The Reconstruction and Restoration of Values and Morals

    The times we live in demand and require the reconstruction and restoration of values and morals. The expectations of the youth are  fostered by the capitalist nature of the society they come up in. These youth are flashed all day long by 2Chains, Rick Ross, and T.I., and the celebrity lifestyle of mega mansions, helicopters and private jets. The music, the movies, the TMZ, Access Hollywood, and even the national news outlets reserve a space strictly for celebrity news and gossip. Don’t...READ MORE

    Prison is Pure Evil

    I pray you are moving in a positive direction today, and using your energy wisely. Someone wrote me awhile back, a young cat on the street, and asked me what it’s like in prison. My response was some mornings when I wake up it’s just like yesterday. Life in prison. Then there are days when I wake up and I can tell right at the moment I open my eyes that today is going to be different. Today is as though life does not even exist. It’s something out of a horror movie. And I get...READ MORE

    Poverty and Violence

    How do we curb the violence in communities across the nation? The government and politicians answers are stricter gun laws and longer prison sentences, which, by the way, have proven not to work.  Even with these strict laws and so many people in prison for so long, violence is at an all time high. The only logical thing to do is devise a more reasonable and humane plan of action. Studies show that violence is imminent in impoverished communities. Now the bigger question becomes if we know...READ MORE

    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

    Letter to the Mayor of Newark

    A letter to the Mayor of Newark Ras J. Baraka Peace to you and yours. I first want to thank you for everything you have done for me in the past. Second, I want to apologize for the rough patch they put you through because of me. I had no idea things were that big and that was my mistake. I did not realize the seriousness of who I was. For that I deeply apologize. Now, it has taken me so long to sit down and write this letter. My peoples, before she passed away, told me to write you but I...READ MORE

    Gun Control or Mental Health?

    Once again a massacre has taken place at one of our higher learning institutions. This time it was in Oregon. President Obama said, “it’s becoming routine,” in his remarks that were aired on news reports after the shooting. But still in all, there is no resolve. Gun control is still in constant debate, but my opinion is gun control is not the answer. Taking away our fundamental right to bear arms is not the solution to the actual problem. Since 2012 and the tragic Sandy Hook...READ MORE

    Prison Culture: The Same Ole Slave Games

    “No such thing as rehabilitation, just the same ole slave games” There is a constant battle, psychological in nature, that is always being waged between those in authority and those under authority. Those in authority have done such a number on prisoners. They can even plant seeds and have “gang buddies” feuding with each other. It used to be an FBI tactic during the J. Edgar Hoover days to infiltrate organizations and break them down from the inside. No matter how...READ MORE

    Prison: You’ve Been Warned

    Shalom, Now that I have introduced myself and you understand my purpose and reason for reaching out to you, it is my hope that these writings will be a conduit for hope, encouragement, insight, a challenge, and vision. If I did not care I would say we could use some more weak-minded prey and I assure you some of you would be just that. For prison is certainly a place where only the strong survive. We are killing each other in order to maintain this system that incarcerates us. Our self-hatred...READ MORE

    Shot Dead Live on Camera

    A continuation of previous post “Disdain for the Law“ We keep on hearing about new ways to train the police and body cameras. Well these guys are shooting brothers dead LIVE ON CAMERA!! What can be the difference between a civilian camera and a police camera? The only thing different is who is in control of the camera. In regard to the engagement between a police officer and a “black” suspect, there is no difference. At any time a police officer can wake up on the...READ MORE

    The Son of God. But the Brother of the Devil.

    I wrote this poem in 2011 when I was in Bergen County Jail fighting this federal case. I was being accused of everything under the sun. Even while being on a tier by myself for 2 1/2 years, I never allowed their thoughts of me to become facts. I’m not an animal, just a young man who thought that he could fight things from the inside. Now I know that in order to fight a war you must be on the side of the souljas who want change. This poem reflects all the times when I thought God...READ MORE
