Make America Great…Again?

Before I start, I just want to explain I may ramble a bit within this post. I have an idea, I really want to capture my true emotions about this election…in 4 years revisit my mind during this time. Letting reality set in realizing Trump will be president starting next year. Watching it, it almost didn’t seem real. Then I felt it perhaps the same feeling a white racist may have felt when Obama won. What Obama stood for, what his family represented, his message and the hope he manifested in people created a fear among white supremacy. Back then those same people thought war, an uprising of blacks, the failure of America, etc. Today it’s the reverse effect & although the cards look to be in Trumps hand, how many times have we as people predicted situations wrong ? Look at this election from the beginning the man we thought was least likely to win, won. Maybe I’m optimistic but the illusion of power is strong, ask yourself are you really in fear ? Or is it simply just lack of knowledge? Maybe we’re giving the future potus too much credit…yes even the blacks that believe the next four years will be hell. May we endure and continue the goal of unity when it’s believed to be headed in the worst direction since the 2000’s. Why not shock the world ? Or maybe my eyes are blinded by a rude awakening that’s about to happen? My heart believes in the people first, one man doesn’t control my next four years of life. One of my favorite personal line is when I said “no matter the potus I don’t have any hope”. I still stand by it, I wanted Hillary to build on the progress Obama made. While I agree she wasn’t the best, she wasn’t a rookie at this and the more respectable candidate. While I wanted Hillary to win, I didn’t expect major change but she had a foundation to build off of. To see a drastic change, it starts locally, laws need to change, etc. I don’t have all the answers Sway but it doesn’t start nor end with the president. Trump won’t accomplish all he set out to in 4 years, it’s a second term that would be more crushing. Trump’s great America is yet to be seen, but one thing Trump did already was MADE AMERICA HONEST AGAIN.

Peace&Love

Waving The Flag.

flag

            What does this flag stand for ? Terror ? Honor ? Glory ? Given yes soldiers have died for the flag. You claim to honor them ? Then why make the flag veterans died for unjust, distasteful and falsify it ? Why stand for an anthem that doesn’t reflect the times ? Many have died for the flag but also how many INNOCENT lives lost because of the flag. How many times America placed its foot down harming INNOCENT families in honor of the flag…Kaepernick opened my eyes to something I’ve been blind too for all my life. Why do I stand ? I thought I had to, I thought it was right, I thought I had no other option. I watch the hate and angry spark from Colin’s stance. The thing that confuses me is that the same people screaming at Kap, are the same people who disrespect the flag. The same people disrespect the president and his family ANY chance they get…The PRESIDENT the man chosen to be the face of the flag for 2 terms gets disrespected. Colin taking a knee is the issue though and not the “Americans” that disrespect the chosen face of the flag. Can we play fair America ? After stating multiple times his issue didn’t have anything to do with the military, countless people decided to take it in that manner. It goes to show how many people will avoid the main problem because it’s makes them uncomfortable. No one attempts to see the bigger picture being shown here. I close with this … Freedom why tease us with something you fear ? Free until it leads to freedo. Free until they believe they are losing control. What is freedom in America ?…Peace&Love

Sometimes you need a voice in your ear,
The way I stand as a man ain’t alone,
How much of a man are you ?
If you make it to the yacht,
But everyone else around you drowning,
Maybe I was raised different,
I can’t call myself a man and allow my brothers to remain niggas,
I can’t build a happy home with pity & a sad past,
Why would I offer you to walk in my shoes?
When we can step together,
No matter the situation & what you come from,
One day I’ll fall too,
Wise enough to prepare for it,
The day I’ll need you there for it,
So if I reach a believable highest height,
I’ll offer my shoulders to help you reach an even  higher height,
This is life how I see it,
Written by a black mans genius,
Hate us but wanna be us,
Black is free
Black is us
Black is you,
Black is me,
Black is God,
Can you see?
Sneaking under the overseers,
To achieve,
The life I deserve,
The rights that I’ve earned,
You can keep the stars but them stripes got to burn.

July 25th-Emmett Till

Emmett_Till_Pic_3

Looked a white woman in the eyes,
I should have died today,
Spoke to her kept it as simple as “Hello”,
Though I,
Couldn’t help but think,
I should have died today,
As she turned away I looked once more,
That’s old fashion, Continue reading “July 25th-Emmett Till”

We Tend To Forget.

blkwoman
Mama never thought she was naming a hashtag,
Naming a victim,
Naming another cause for the march ,
She never thought she was naming a headline,
Naming a subject of a CNN discussion,
Mama never thought she was naming another name to the list,
Mama took her time to create,
A name to be place upon a Queen,
Not a name all over the news,
Another grave for black youth,
It’s a shame,
Things we must remember,
Pain isn’t just in our black men,
But also within our women,
Mama we know this wasn’t the she deserved,
I share your pain through these words.

The Message.

IMG_0968They want you in fear,
They kill black men to grab your attention,
They take away your fathers and brothers,
They find the root of your support system and kill it,
They want you to fear giving birth,
They destroy the minds of growing black men so they have nothing to offer,
They tie your black men to a system that forever follows them,
So even when your black man wants to change…he can’t,
They kill us to break your heart,
They want to give you the fear to never experience this again,
They hope you choose not to birth and raise another black man,
They know the only way to get rid of us is to get rid of you,
This is the message they’ll attempt to send you,
Black woman.

Numbers Lie?…

IMG_0940

If your argument is more whites are killed by police than blacks, I advise the white community to bring these situations to the light. To me that number means nothing, as humans we tend to know what we see and what we experience. You want us to believe you face the same issues we do? Show us and we’ll gladly fight for justice with you. White & Black hand in hand fighting for our rights. See when a black man is murdered by police we don’t see much frustration from the white community. We don’t see a white community that’s tired of the same issue. We see (not all) but plenty of the white community stand behind the police. When your emotions match the numbers maybe then that statistic may mean something … Until then #blacklivesmatter.
