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!!!!
