It’s fresh; it’s new; it’s different than anything and anyone before her. She amazes you daily… Continue reading
These United States are full of fullblown trickery and tomfoolery. Let me tell you what’s about to happen. Ebola (or “ebola”, depending on how you want to look at this) is going to be strategically tranfered from state to state. “We’re sending this person to xyz for the best treatment”…. “we accidentally sent this person home with symptons and encouraged the travel plans they mentioned. Our bad…” This [man made] disease is about to rip thru this entire nation like Hurricane Katrina, and the experimental drugs that have been proven to heal will suddenly not be available or will no longer prove effective. This will transform Ebola into a huge medical money pot like AIDS and cancer, and those most effected will be African-Americans and Hispanics. Welcome to Maryland Ebola.
Millions are sitting up worried about Kanye antics, RHOA, and screaming for the legalization of marijuana. Meanwhile, we’re living in a nation where white supremacy still reigns, and our country believes our lives are good for nothing more than target practice. So the next time you stans are arguing over Beyonce’s “greatness”, think about the fact that this nation sees her as “shuck and jive” entertainment. The next time you stand in line for sneakers, instead choose to rally up and stand in line for the next local election. Unless it’s your occupation, spend less time studying sports statistics, fashion blogs, and you tube videos, and spend more time studying the Bible and this country’s race-specific laws. Though we all try to stay blind to the fact, THIS is a nation Divided, and the cost of that division is young black lives. Our sons are being wiped out, and the ones not being murdered are being thrown behind bars. The black male is not perfect, nor is he always 100% blameless. However, the black male is a HUMAN BEING, just like the white male, the red male, the yellow male, etc, and his LIFE should be RESPECTED as such.
Young people, this is OUR fight! It’s time for us to take up the banner and continue to demand equality and justice that our parents and grandparents demanded before us. Read Alexis Templeton’s story of her fight for justice…
Hey Baltimore!!! Listen young people, we are the voice of change! Older folks, you are the guidance from the past! It’s time we all come together to make some noise for our young people!!! Save Our Sons is a campaign for life. Save Our Sons is an effort to ensure that our young black lives are valued and respected! We, as people of color, have been comfortable for far too long. It’s time to demand justice, equality, and peace for our people.

Surfing the web….
… I came across this picture. Beneath it were thousands of comments stating that the only difference was the fact that Trayvon Martin was a young black male and Marley Lion was a young white male. My stomach churned as I read thousands of people’s comments that Trayvon’s death was given “preferential treatment” because of his race. I got angry as I read the numerous comments stating that Marley Lion deserved the same publicity, rallying, and outcry Trayvon Martin received. My response? Trayvon Martin deserved the same JUSTICE that Marley Lion received. Point. Blank. And the PERIOD.
The photo asks “what’s the difference?” So let’s do Elizabeth O’Neil (the creator of the photo) a favor and answer her question.
Just in case you’ve already forgotten about Ferguson…
