so... i had to step away for a moment. haste makes waste and i tend to be more radical than most it seems. especially, during this space in history. i am clear though as to the reasons.
al sharpton gave the world a glimpse of his foolish ass awhile back. some brothers made excuses for him.
yesterday, he showed the whole, big, rotten, disgusting, ridiculous, amoral, for sale-as long as there is a video camera, shameless, criminally misguided thing. in doing so he made it impossible for the mentally slow, aforementioned brothers, to say anything in integrity aside from WTF! there is always an upside:-)
had i been surprised i may have fallen down. *movie reference-starring michael douglas:-)*
instead, i decided to go racing, spend time with my family, and recruit others to join the battle.
in case you haven't noticed folks...we are at war! domestically and abroad. literally and figuratively. the truth and degree of the matter you will never see on the news. most have been trained to not tell the truth. it is rude, unlady-like, a downer, and a "national security risk". not to mention, if you acknowledged what's really going on and what's wrong---it would be human nature to want to fix it. this is why deception, lies and inhumanity go hand in hand.
despite feeling like i am whispering in the wind. i feel led to keep doing it. i will. with purpose. and laser-like focus.
i will stop, as best as i can, reminding those within my circle of influence when those things come to pass that i have called previously. i will not feel annoyed when others tell me what i have been saying all along; as if it should be a newsflash to me. i will instead re-direct that annoyance to buoyancy with the fact that i have company in the light of understanding. i will continue to pace myself and remind myself that what other people think of me is not my business. i will re-post my first official blog, periodically, to re-focus myself. those that invite me to focus on all of mankind, i will consistently ignore and pray they gain perspective. in addition to the common sense that would inform them that all giant projects are best broken down into manageable ones. i will keep my eyes fixed firmly on the prize. i will remain focused. i have the power.
i will, instead of getting angry, belly laugh at this this conk wearing preacher clown; that has volunteered his services to be the agent of inhumanity. i will give praise for the wisdom that informs my knowledge that we will see a lot of this fool and those like him. what he is fighting for-the right of males to rape indiscriminately at young ages; and to be dealt with leniently regardless of race- has quietly become the national past time. look. see. accept the truth. this evil knows no racial bounds. all of humanity faces the same enemy.
for awhile now rape has become a part of the "entertainment" scene. it has become frequently included in the titillating gratuitous sex scenes. actors of all ages have signed up to add the visual to the atrocity. what we see now is of course the natural progression. my refusal to support the "entertainment" industry has in part been because of this very reason. that and the erasing of the black woman image in any type of positive light. that and the refusal to couple black men and women (unless she looks white-like which promotes colorism) in meaningful, healthy, non stereotypical relationships.
so...i will not allow my focus to be shifted. i will continue to register my disdain and release it:-) i am NO saint; and this fool makes me want to take his head OFF! discussions at this point seem like a game of patty cake. i don't love traitors into turning back. traitors should be swiftly dropped where they stand. victorious people historically get this basic principle. they don't risk victory by trying to compromise and err on the side of caution.
i will use what we see to assist black women and girls to empower themselves to not only survive...but to live abundantly, powerfully and freely. human rights are claimed, not given. freedom is seized not requested. cease and desist orders are commands not mere suggestions.
