Three Men To America

SOMETIMES
I WONDER
IF YOUR HEART
IS WRAPPED
IN BARBED WIRE,

BECAUSE
EVERY TIME
I TRY TO LOVE YOU
I COME AWAY
BLEEDING.

Breonna’s Ex Boyfriend

Breonna Taylor deserves justice.

An innocent life was taken, it could have been prevented had civil servants done their jobs properly. Barging into someone’s home in the middle of the night without announcing yourself, could have been prevented (this is why her boyfriend fired first). Furthermore it was Breonna’s EX boyfriend who was dealing drugs, not the boyfriend she was with, nor Taylor. If heavily armed white people (or serial killers i.e Manson) can be handled without being murdered, so should colored people with lesser offenses, or NONE AT ALL. Are political parties clouding your ability to think morally, or factually? Via: My Skin Color Is Not A Crime

P.U.P

Stands for pretty ugly people, masquerading under glamours (but that’s a topic for another time) of beauty. This year I was racially trolled by MULTIPLE celebrities, celebrisites, and pseudo somebodies. The most abhorrent part is the facade of caring about the lives of colored people (or colored people aiding in the bullying) to cover your ass. I screamed on all occasions of these interactions, where I was minding my business and they came for me unsolicited. Just because you can’t be light doesn’t mean I deserve for you to smear your conditioned racism, blatant racism, insecurities, or whatever miserable things you feel on me. Then like right-winged black people, expect me to be your punching bag, suppressing the trauma you’ve tried to inflict, for the sake of your peace in some regard. How do you sleep with yourselves? This also goes for all the people who thought it was cute to show support for these said trash people, to what teach me you’re trash too? Do you really think you’re a model human being, when you switch gears because of who I’m connected to, or karma? Do you think lying is cute? Making stuff up about people with your one dimensional, do anything for a dollar selves? Do you like making fake accounts as grown people to demean people who call you what you are? To troll people who were fans for no reason? It would be a disservice to myself, my people, my ancestry to let you slide. And I won’t. You didn’t feel bad, neither do I. You get what you give. I told you guys who and what I was, but you made assumptions and dismissed me based on my gender and skin color. Still I’ve gone easy on a lot of you. Please never assume my life is as surface as yours. I have substance. God is good to those who are good.Via: It’s The Hive Style

De-Conditioning: Just Because You Didn’t See It

Doesn’t mean it didn’t happen. All too often people have dismissed racism as a thing of the past, because seeing is believing. Only if seen by white people right? An innocent life was taken, a crime was committed, police officers are not above the laws they enforce. In fact they should be held the most accountable. ARREST THE COPS THAT KILLED BREONNA TAYLOR. PERIOD. Why do you believe the cops haven’t been locked up? Via: Upscale Magazine

Got A Golden Skull

Lying here your plant looks tall
With light shining through
Remembering a runner’s way
A look in your eye

Could you be the psychic one staring me through
Though we may whisper calm
My head spins with truth

I Was Happier Then

Gold teeth

And a curse for this town
Were all in mouth

Only, I don’t know how they got out, dear

Turn me back into the pet
I was when we met

I was happier then, with no mindset.

De-Conditioning: The Difference

Because white people weren’t meant to be slaves under the 13th amendment, only black people. Why? As punishment for being held captive by a country that stole Africans, raped our women and created the African American. Period. Where’s the lie? How many other cases similar to this can you think of? Artist: The Daily Don
