Inspired by my brother from another mother who got arrested over some dumb ish yet still blaming his failures on the white men and other people.  I remember a couple of years ago while listened to Papoose, a young emcee from NY who released a series of songs entitled “Law library”.  This kid broke the rules to black people who are too tired to pick up a book and read about things that could potentially help them get out of trouble…One thing that we must all stop doing is to blame everything on race; I am sorry Al Sharpton, race isn’t to blame for some of our stupid and thoughtless acts.

i personally believe if you work towards your goals, and do it honestly, u will get great results just be real with yourself about what your goals are and do not let anything or anyone stop u!

Believing in yourself is major because if you don’t, how can others? In the times we are living in, there are many obstacles…but, we are living in the United States of America…where we have laws…and rights…these laws do work! So, I encourage all to know the laws and know your rights!!!

STUDY THE CONSTITUTION!!!

DO IT WITH YOUR CHILDREN!!

      it’s like i run into a few kids in little Haiti and you try to educate them on a few things that could ultimately decide their fate and they’re trying to blame everything on society and the crackers (as they call them). You cant go all your life blaming people for your mishaps and stupidity…

    Mr. Prodg, Sir. You are black, and I am white. We both seem to gravitate to discussions of race and relations, and relations of race. I don’t write about it because I am white, but because it is such a vast and relevant topic. The intricacies of it are amazing and rich.

    It seems to be a mood thing with me, whereas you are more consistent in your optimism and dedication to empowerment NO MATTER WHAT! I am not feeling that so much today and my writing on my own tonight reflects that.

    I did get good energy from your words. Thanks.
