    The Snitch

    This prose is about the snitch. Some might find it offensive, but I am compelled to write about it for the sake of enlightening you on how snitches can be counter-productive to a community. Before you can totally understand how the snitch can be an impediment to the prosperity of a community, you must first understand what a snitch is and how they came about. The History of Snitching Snitching has been going on for as long as man existed, but many seem to associate the term with crime and Black...READ MORE

    George Frison

    My name is George Frison aka G-Ball. I am 50 years of age and was raised on the Southside of Chicago in the Auburn-Gresham area, on the borderline of Englewood. I came from what many would consider to be a well-to-do family, as my parents owned and operated an upholstery business in our neighborhood around 79th and Loomis. I was also raised in a Lutheran Church and sang in the choir. In 1980, I had a fight with a boy over a girl. After a series of retaliation by his older brothers against me,...READ MORE

    Trumped Out

    Right about now the entire world is focused on Donald Trump taking office. Everyone is concerned with Trump’s political leanings. By all means, we should have a space in our lives for politics. However, the state of real policy and law-making exists on such a level that the masses have very little actual insight into what’s happening. We need to focus on changing our world and make the real changes happen ourselves. Politicians will never fix the income gap between the rich and the...READ MORE

    Love is What We Need

    Holler when you hear me. Better yet, stand still. Let’s come together then move forward. Step after step. Gathered thoughts, organized noise, shared vision. The potential can no longer be bottled up. We have to MOVE, people! A stagnant mind means a shell of a body. Let’s learn to love life opposed to living as dead men and women. The tools we need are the struggles we face. The obstacles we encounter are the lessons that will propel us through life giving us the blueprint for...READ MORE

    Lessons from Tewhan Butler’s book America’s Massacre

    Salutations to all the men and women who stand firm and keep the support system “real” for their friends and loved-ones who are in legal bondage behind the fences and G-walls in Amerikkka. Thank you. So much has transpired since we last spoke, including the passing of medical marijuana in the Bible Belt (Arkansas), which is a wise move. But enough on that subject matter, I’m a warrior who understands business. I’m not a politician. I stay up and ready, nothing less. This entry I would...READ MORE

Live a legend, die a legend, in time You ain’t happy, in misery, trying to trap me with wickedness you spit, lips drip poisonous venom Your limbs testify to...READ MORE

    Quawntay Adams from Break Out Releases Book

    As many of you already know, I recently published my memoir, Chasin’ Freedum. Considering the title, some might assume that the story is a reiteration of my story as revealed in the documentary “Break Out”. But Chasin’ Freedum is about much more than a prisoner escaping prison. It is a story about struggling and overcoming barriers, both internal and external. Some of these barriers are the same barriers that many of you face on a daily basis. After all, the lack of...READ MORE

    Solutions To The Day-To-Day Struggles Of The People

    I am so sick of watching these programs with these so-called solutions to the violence in impoverished communities, especially in my hometown of Chicago. The people who come up with these solutions live in shiny highrises and fancy and comfortable homes and are out of touch. They do not understand the day-to-day struggles of the people in the communities they speak about. They are so quick to say the primary solution is repairing the broken home or the relationship between police and community,...READ MORE
