Peace.....


Sometimes I think that I should apologize to the children of the black community on behalf of all black men who have failed to create a better world for them to grow in....This place is truly a terrible setting for a child...

Yes there are opportunites, but the price is beyond what any of us can afford..We pay for American luxuries with our souls....

This world has lost all innocence..it has lost its innate ability to enchant...It has lost it's wonder...

Our community is a cess pool, and we, black men have failed to properly respond...We are still trying to figure out ways to convince another man to repair our misery, when in truth the very man we deliver our complaint to is the one culpable for our plight...

I remember wondering "How did things get so bad for us?...And damn why did God choose me to to be of those who live in such misery?" My thoughts were that we, black people must be destined for greatness since our obstacles are so great, however, our progress is negligible while our regressions are considerable.

I was listening to 1972 Jesse Jackson speaking at the infamous "Gary Convention"...Man the brother was beautiful, and so full of hope...He was Young and strong, and the world lay before him...The future was so bright...Jesse was brilliant...It was "Nation Time!!"...and then the opposition mounted a counter assault...and we fell down...

If the struggle is over, then we are doing nothing more than birthing children into the slaughter...

And thus my desire to apologize to our children for not doing enough to secure a world for them...


Had to get that off of my chest...
