No Justice! No Peace! Please…Give It a Rest!

18 Apr

There have been some very disappointing events for African-American people here in the USA as of late. They Zimmerman Trial and the Dunn Trial are two such events. Also, what about the disappointing delay for the Central Park 5 getting compensation for their wrongful imprisonment?

Well, I am not one to protest and such. I’d rather boycott those who disrespect and dehumanize black people.

The Montgomery Bus Boycott is a great example of how to conduct yourselves when someone disrespect you.

A lot of us have gone soft with the advent of social media.

Special shout-out to Tariq Nasheed and Tommy Sotomayor for spitting the truth to power and the people on these matters.

To be clear, it is all about replacing the current system of White Supremacy with a system of justice for ALL. Not replacing it with “Black Supremacy” or any other supremacy for that matter.

Check out the sonnet below I wrote expressing my feeling on this.

no justice no peaceBlack people marching will NOT get it done.

Neither will long Facebook or Twitter rants.

These tactics are very easy for folks to shun.

Let’s rethink strategy and make a stance.

Boycotts work better; no respect, no loot.

Stop the public statements of forgiveness.

It is not intelligent; gets the boot!

We should expect more, not settle for less.

Neely Fuller, Frances Cress-Welsing; GIANTS!

They teach us how to understand our plight.

Marimba Ani explains their mindset.

White Supremacy needs OUR compliance.

We have plans that work. Get ready, get set…

Claud Anderson, Amos Wilson; our best.

“No Justice! No peace!” Please…give it a rest!

AWFUL People Suck!

21 Nov

This haiku chain was inspired by a Facebook conversation where me and my brother, Travis, were clowning Internet tough guys who talk a lot of smack on social media.

As is my custom, song titles are hyper-linked to their respective audio file on GrooveShark.com.


“AWFUL People Suck!”

Attention whoring
is what you do best. Always
posting your new pics

or talking about
how you did this or that or
a beef made public

on Facebook or on
Twitter. She Don’t Have To Know
and most do not care.

It is straight foolish
to air your dirty laundry
in front of the world.

Talk to the other
person privately offline
about your concerns.

Your talking tough and
going public can earn you
a good ass kicking.

Plus it shows how much
of a coward you are for
not going to them.

Once the die are cast
it is useless to try to
reel them back – too late.

As a matter of
fact, you will be a big, ‘ol
loser. Snake eyes, friend.

Just in case you have
not noticed, the word ‘awful’
is an acronymn.

‘A’ & ‘W’
is for Attention Whoring.
Some gotta have it

by any and all
means necessary. Be it
good or bad. Who cares?

‘F’ is for Foolish.
Only fools think that Facebook
friends are your true friends.

‘U’ represents how
Useless your life becomes by
living as a fake.

A phony. A fraud.
‘L’ is for being such a
Loser. A big one.

That is how you get
the word awful. Yuck!
AWFUL people suck!
