    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

    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

    Bear Witness to America’s Massacre

    It was seven when I heard the sirens I had to get away, but my legs wouldn’t move. I was running nowhere fast. Suddenly, I was face down. 1, 2, 3 officers hard tackled, knee in my back, arms wrestled behind me. My rights were never read; was told I had none. To take another man’s life is said to be the most egregious sin, and so is the denial of justice. Head mushed down, cop car door slammed shut. “We got ’em Capt!” Mistaken identity, my guilt...READ MORE

    If not now, when? After We’ve Lost Another Brother?

    Friends and family celebrate America’s Massacre 2016 In the Margins Top Nonfiction Book Award. How many do we have to lose before we wake up and realize none of what is happening is life? We speak of togetherness, unity, brotherhood, solidarity. What is the meaning if we continue to ignore the actions which constitute each. There are not different degrees of keeping your brother. There is only one way – with everything you have. The reason I decided to write this post is because I...READ MORE

    America’s Massacre: More than a book title

    “CAN’T YOU SEE WE’RE LIVING IN A WAR ZONE!“ – words from rapper T.I. There’s a war going on and no man seems to be safe. The daily guns shots, the police sirens, justice coming out the barrel of a gun. Children slain in the streets, men gunned down in front of their wives and kids. Video footage of cold-blooded murder, shortly thereafter comes the news conferences to justify injustice. What are the times we’re living in? EXCUSE ME AMERICA, MY NAME IS...READ MORE

    Happy Birthday: Massacre is Gone

    October 1 was the day I was born. There are many stories that began this way.  An innocent young child welcomed to a cruel world. The world that I entered in 1979 was still waning a hangover from the riots of the ’60s, and the noteworthy Black Power Movement. Shortly thereafter, when my feet began to get wet, Similac still on my breath, came the ’80s crack epidemic. I guess you can call this, out with the old, and in with the new. If everything happens for a reason maybe this is...READ MORE

    STOP the Violence!

    1 GUN, 2 GUN, 3 GUN – BANG! Like ’80s vinyl, a scratched record repeating itself over and over again. And though many appear to be fed up, tired of making the song cry, all do nothing more than cry the blues. Sorry people, but this ain’t rap. It’s fact. I’m not calling for protests. I’m not calling for violence! I’m not calling for backwards acts which place future generations in greater despair. And though my spiel may not be as popular as most would...READ MORE

    Pardon the Truth Gangstas

    A bus just rolled in the other day, and as always I’m there to see the new arrivals and check the temperature of those who may enter the terror-dome with something other than peace on their mind. As I strolled into the chow hall, a few trusted komrades in tow, I recognized a familiar face. This dude was a street reputable. He was known to stack millions, and this was back in my day, so his street notoriety was mountain high. Before he could spot me, I chilled the way only I could, and...READ MORE

    Dear Mama

    Dear Mama, As I’ve traveled this earth and experienced life as a man, I’ve taken notice to the fact many attribute being a man to their father figure. Thus I know today that with all my father’s strength, courage and guidance I would not be the man I am without your love. I’ve strived for excellence and made repeated mistakes along the way. And although I’ve been condemned by the many, you dare to love me in the face of all their grimacing stares and awful...READ MORE
