    Black History Matters

    Great men and women have come from Africa and have exhibited the dignity and intelligence of their ancestors. The story of the so-called black man and woman cannot be told in a few bits about slavery. For there would remain too much untold. If we want to talk about the history of the black man we have to start with Eve, the mother of all civilization Her dark bronze skin and clever mind drew the pattern for our survival tens of thousands of years ago. Her imprint guides us to Egypt. There...READ MORE

    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

    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

    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

I’m human, but I wish I didn’t know people I’m better with no equal, there’ll be no sequel, the beginning and ending is me, Alpha and Omega to believe Seize thoughts of envy, control your jealousy, so what you’re telling me, bears no relevancy The legacy’s mine! 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

    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

    Hood PTSD is Real

    I know a secret that most men and women in prison and in urban America suffer from. Our secret is is Hood Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (Hood PTSD). Hood PTSD is an understanding and recognition that men, women and children raised in war-torn ghettos across the United States of America face the same harms, anxieties and mental disorders as our soldiers who serve in the military and go to war. I believe my mental disorder (Hood PTSD) was caused by numerous factors such as abusive parents,...READ MORE

    I Thought You Meant Forever

    You must love me, or not. It’s been a long time and time has revealed a truth we knew but ignored: You weren’t down for me. The many times you spoke those words were only a lie. You waited, you grabbed hold of all you could, sucked me dry, then I fell, and you fell off. After refusing to speak to me for years and years, when you finally opened your mouth you told me of all my mistakes and errors and how that was what caused your betrayal. It wasn’t until now that I realized a...READ MORE
