Shout Outs!

I would like to thank house -negro and republican gang member Leshawn Barber for banning me from her blog and giving me the inspiration to start my own. I am not where you are yet house- negro Barber, but I am coming for that ass!

I would like to thank my sister for helping me to cultivate my debating skills. Those arguments over the dinner table while we were growing up were priceless. I have yet to meet an adversary as good as you were. And while we are at it, thanks for turning me on to Baldwin, Fanon, the Last Poets, and Gil Scott Heron- The Revolution is still not being televised-

I would like to thank all the field-negroes keeping it real out here in the fields. I am going to have a top ten list for you real soon. Not to mention the field-negroes from history who paved the way for modern day field-negroes like myself. People like my homey Marcus Garvey, like Malcolm X, and Nelson Mandela, Norman Manley, and Harriet Tubman... we could go on and on.

I would like to thank the people who volunteered to help the Katrina victims during their spring break.

I would like to thank the people in the hood who have the courage to come forward and report crime whenever they see it.

I would like to thank public school teachers -Black and white- who bust their asses every day trying to teach kids who are too ignorant to know what's really good for them.

And finally, I would like to thank the LSU Tigers for kicking Duke's ass. Seeing Mr. American Express Man and his 1400 SAT scoring McDonald's All Americans go down was priceless. Geaux Tigers!!!!

george washington carver - his story is one of the very first stories that i remember reading and pondering as a young boy.

lets see he is born a slave his mother purchased for $700 dollars then they are stolen. his mother and sister die and in the meantime his owner hired someone to find them. the investigator finds george and returns him. for this george's owner moses carver gives him a horse that goes on to breed champion race horses.


in time it came to be known in the community that he blessed all that he touched. he saw an opportunity to educate himself and did. you can read more about george washington carver here.

he taught and researched from 1896 at tuskegee institute until his death in 1943.

in a lot of ways, to me, his life was very similar to some of the ancient figures like daniel and joseph who turned the tables going from slave to master so to speak.

anyway i read you post and thought i would throw in my own shout out.

Very good piece.

Question, the big "gangsta" anti-snitch thing, isn't that hurting the community?

I mean, if the community got up and said the N.R.A. (N_ reduction Association) lies (1) the "Second Amendment right" is a lie--only belongs to the National Guard (2) Guns are beneficial and (3) The victims of crime deserve it. Than began working to get REAL gun control measures in place not the current BS laws with more holes in them than the backstop at the NRA range.

Wouldn't it go a long way to ensuring that black kids might grow up PERIOD?
