Juneteenth Pt. 1

In short, if You seek to make JUNETEENTH [June 19th.] A National Holiday for the Asiatics so-called (African-American) — then You should consider first give-up the Fourth Of July as your National Holiday. Why? Because the Fourth of July is celebrated as the “Day Of Independence” [JULY 4th, 1776] in which, a manifesto of the representatives of the 13 American colonies (All Europeans) asserted their independence and explained the reasons for their break with Britain. Not for the African American. Remember, the Asiatics (so-called African Negro) was in perpetual slavery! And when their U. S. constitution was written, the African Negro was Not included. (See the Dred Scott Case of 1857). . . Why? Because the Asiatic (so-called Negro, Black, Colored, or African American) was NEVER intended or included in the making of America as a Citizen.

AN OVERVIEW:

The Dred Scott case, was a suit brought by Scott, a slave from Missouri, on the grounds that temporary residence in a territory in which slavery was banned under the MISSOURI COMPROMISE had made him free. The majority opinion of the U.S. Supreme Court in 1857, read by Chief Justice Tandy, held that Scott, as an African Negro, could Never be a citizen of any state, and therefore could not sue his owner in federal court. Tandy should have ended his opinion here but, instead plunged on to declare that even if Scott could sue, his sojourn in free territory did not make him free because Congress’ ban on slavery in the Missouri Compromise was unconstitutional; furthermore, Tandy went on to ask the question and define it, in the same opinion, asking simply: Can a negro, whose ancestors were imported into this country, and sold as slaves, becoming a member of the political community formed and brought into existence by the Constitution of the United States, and as such become entitled to all the rights, and privileges, and immunities, guaranteed by that instrument to the citizens? One of which rights is the privilege of suing in a court of the United States in the case specified in the Constitution.

It will be observed, that the plea applies to the class of persons only whose ancestors were (Negroes) of the African race and imported into this country, and sold and held as slaves. The only matter in issue bed the court, therefore, is whether the descendants of such slaves, when they shall be emancipated, or who are born of parents who became free before their birth, are citizen is used in the Constitution of the United States. And this being the only matter in dispute on the pleadings, the court must be understood as speaking in this opinion of that class only, that is, of those persons who are the descendants of Africans who were imported into this country, and sold as slaves.

. . .Chief Justice Tandy, went on to state in the Scott case, that: The words”people of the United States” and “citizens” are synonymous terms, and mean the same thing. They both describe the political body who, according to our republican institutions, form the sovereignty, and who hold the power and conduct the Government through their representatives. They are what we familiarly call the “sovereign people,” and every citizen is one of these people, and a constituent member of this sovereignty. The question before us is, whether the class of persons described in the plea in abatement compose a portion of this people and are constituent members of this sovereignty?

We think “they are Not,” and that they are Not included, and were not intended to be included, under the word “citizen” in the Constitution, and can therefore claim none of the rights and privileges which that instrument provides for and secures to citizens of the United States. On the other contrary, they were at the time considered as a subordinate and inferior class of beings, who had been subject to the dominant race, and whether emancipated or not, yet remained subject to their authority, and had no rights or privileges but such as those who held the power and the Government might choose to grant them. . . .

. . .In the opinion of the court, the legislation and histories of the times, and the language used in the Declaration of Independence, show, that neither the class of people who had been imported as slaves, nor their descendants, whether they had become free or not, were then acknowledged as a part of the people, nor intended to be included in the general words used in that “memorable” instrument.

It is difficult at this day to realize the state of public opinion in relation to that unfortunate race, which prevailed in the civilized and enlightened portions of the world at the time of the “Declaration of Independence,” and when the Constitution of the United States was framed and adopted. But the public history of every European nation displays it in a manner too plain to be mistaken.

They has for more than a century before been regarded as beings of an inferior order, and altogether unfit to associate with the white race, either in social or political relations, and sofar inferior, that they had no rights which the white man was bound to respect, and that the negro might justly and lawfully be reduced to slavery for his benefit.

He was brought and sold and treated as an ordinary article of merchandise and traffic, whenever a profit could be made by it. This opinion was at that time fixed and universal in the civilized portion of the white race. It was regarded as an axiom in morals as well as in politics; which no one thought of disputing, or supposed to be open to dispute, and men in every grade and position in society daily and habitually acted upon it in their private pursuits, as well as in matters of public concern, without doubting for a moment the correctness of this opinion.

Truth Will Set Us Free

I attempt to draw significant conclusion from the present consumption of thoughts thus actions…………

Digesting intrinsic information whilst computing Behavioral configurations, still attempting to calibrate Psychological Signification. I am but a Will-O- the-Wisp. I have Aim, I know the contours of my Purpose………..

Yet, float as the mighty Sperm Whale I do; Unconscious of the vast World around me. Yet, When I put forth my thoughts to understand the depravities committed under the auspicious titles of Justice, Equality, Freedom, and Humanitarianism, I find the dull ache throbbing throughout the caverns of my heart so filling that barely can I stand the downpour. How do people move on from events continuously taking place?
Explain how to forget the wrongs of a past that is present? Black Lives Matter! Black Lives Matter! The great city Babylon has refallen; Originals Salute!!!

I oscillate dangerously above the blackened, red streaked clouds of Rage. The vapors rise to choke and suffocate and attempt to vanquish the light of civility. Sawabona Black Woman. Seeth I all that you are, and enraged like the steam whistling from the teakettle left too long within the fire am I at the destructive violence being visited upon you. How are our Children to be encouraged to stand strong and steadfast when the moment they exit the home their shadows are not allowed to grow long? Death stalks the Youth. Yet the Youth are upon the front lines. It is they who carry the fight, it is they who voice the arguments, fore who can know the Black Journey better than the Black People?
At what stage can we release the Pains of yesterday when yesterday is being consistently played out today? Even as I raise my head and defiantly face the Beast, its paw to the east smites the life of my Sister, and its tail in the south crushes the Hopes of the Divergents.
We rise. Awaken the Sleepers. Invigorate, Revitalize, and Esteem the Stolen Souls found wallowing in the inequities within the Coven of Thieves.

The Serpent is hissing in anger in an attempt to hide its Fear. Sing out Your dreams—Persecuted. Scream out Your rage—Raped. Shout at the top of Your Lungs—Shot-in-Cold-Blooded Hate. Speak the atrocities enacted upon an entire People merely for the Hue of their Beautiful Skin. Black Lives Matter. Make Black Beautiful again. How do you kill that which originates Life? How do we continue to misjudge a people who continuously shows Us that they have no yearning to cohabitate with us? Why is it that they attempt to wipe out the existence of Elijah Muhammad? We find ourselves in Worldwide Civil unrest because the World has become 100% dissatisfied at the treatment of the Blackman and Blackwoman in America.
We have a President inflaming the deeply rooted hatreds of internal White America.
We find White Americans standing and voicing their dislikes and frustrations at their own People. The Book of Revelations reveals the momentous Events of today, yet no one wants to face the Truth. The fiery storm of destruction has yet to expose itself in its glorious totality. In what way will we deal with this 6000 thousand year hatred? Are we too content at attempting to contrive a means by which to convince self acknowledged enemies to be just with Us? Or are we ready to face reality and admit that we NEED to get the hell away from this Wicked People. These are questions that will be answered in the coming days.

Stay tuned, for we shall know the Truth and it shall definitely set Us Free!!!!!!!!

P.O.L.I.C.E.

What our eyes are witnessing in this new era of time is White America still in style, all powerful at the hands of today’s government & police still corrupted. (Pushing Oppressive Laws Injustice Causing Eradication) of the so called black man & woman an America made negro.

The government in which we reside for numerous centuries of oppression, slavery & mind altering techniques has stopped so called African Americans from changing for the better or reaching an equal platform to be treated as first class citizens.

Much of African Americans experiences have been self-deteriorating, a result of having endured the worst element of Eurocentric hegemony. Historically, many European Americans questioned the very humanity of Africans in the interest of material, gain and control, thus creating an entire Socio-political structure designed to enforce and perpetuate the dehumanization of so called African people. 

An example of this is draining & pillaging of Africa & all her resources and the slave triangle of North America, Europe & Africa. As Mr. James Baldwin said 57 years ago! “white Americans do not understand the depths out of which such an ironic tenacity comes, but they suspect that the force is sensual, & they are terrified of sensuality and do not any longer understand it.”

As it relates to the so called black race, the white man heaven is the black mans hell & the American dream has been our nightmare. And one may object but it has been true for as long as so called white men have ruled the world.

Mr. Baldwin said: He could not feel, in those sorrowful years, that this human indifference, concerning which he knew so much already, would be his portion on the day that the United States decided to murder it’s negroes systematically instead of little by little and catch-as-catch-can.”

Which we are witnessing the systematically death as well as a physical death! from the hands of those who are to protect and serve the community of the American people who are unable to protect themselves. By the removing of the black man from the home! leaving the women to raise children on her own. From the so called black man being hunted down & slaughtered in the streets by law enforcement.

Creating another cycle of a broken home & broken minds! from the young woman of a single parent falling victim to unplanned pregnancy, rape, prostitution & drugs. And the young man following a path of destruction either to join a gang, sell drugs, gun down by Street life! or slain by law enforcement or thrown in prison from the color of his skin.

All created from a system that has never been in favor of the so call black race! who is recognized as being subhuman or 3/5ths of a person. Which leads to (Pushing Oppressive Laws Injustice Causing Eradication) of the so called black person.

So is it safe to say the system is not only bias & broken but also has a license to kill? because any death that is committed without a license is against the law!. Meaning in power within government affairs, due to the fact the white America government are the biggest criminals & incorporate laws that benefit their protection & laws that create more hardship on people of color within urban communities across the country.

As we see politics in everything we do in this new era of time, I can say people across the globe have no choice but to pay attention to the cause of the so called black man death rate. As well as issues on mass incarceration, & prison reform in white America.

History has been proven to repeat itself from what we our witnessing in today’s society as well as our history becoming his-story! We went from seeing the kkk wearing sheets over their heads, turning them in for police badges & uniforms giving them a license to kill. 

We seen war on drugs! To war on crime, but in reality it has always been war on black lives! Which the government embraces all the above through the act of war! which is the promotion of violence!.

Now 57 years later, the so called blacks can enter in the front doors of white owned establishments, ride in the front seats of buses & can finally obtain employment within government agencies. But in the same breath still are not allowed in certain communities unless we are recognized as being rich.

Looking at what has remained the same from 57 years ago & has not changed in regards of people (Protesting Oppression hasn’t Led Into Color Equality). Which we have been seeking since the emancipation days of slavery to be equal to white America!.

Although what did & has taken place from 57 years ago is Bobby Kennedy’s assurance did check out when he said: A negro can become President in 40years to the unfortunate tone of warm congratulation with so many liberals address their negro equals.

As I made mention earlier, more so called black people has been instituted into the positions that was once unattainable in government for the colored person. On that note you still see puppets being strung along by the puppet Master the man behind the veil that’s really pulling the strings & calling the shots.

No difference from the house nigga doing what he is told to do. Becoming brainwashed to push the agenda of the slave master for the gain of a better life style from the demise & devouring of their own people. Thinking they are equal but just another nigga who’s labeled a sellout.

In closing, the focus should continue to be upon the status of equal to white America. As well as promoting war on helping inner cities, war on producing more jobs, better education, housing, family support, mass incarceration along with (Protesting Oppressive Laws Injustice Causing Eradication).

If not, we will keep witnessing more Rodney king beatings, Trevon Martin killings, Michael Brown, Eric Gardner, Breonna Taylor, George Floyd, Rayshard Brooks etc. Falling victim to the hands of the POLICE.

While white America keep allowing them to beat all charges! Police brutality will continue!!!

Conservative Movement Pt 2

Modern day Conservative thinking never was nor has it ever been about equality for the minority, only — tolerance due to the new era of time, but now with Trump in office, they no longer have to tolerate the minority. They are saying to the minority; you have been over-stepping your boundary for far to long. Why? Because of “liberal” laws as conservatives put it. Pay close attention to their language brothers and sisters and as you have noticed, “liberals” are no longer in power!, and it’s not just geared toward the minority, but Anyone who does not share their conservative way of life. The invisible Jim Crow System is Now In Full Effect! Wake-Up Young Brothers and Sisters, It’s Your Time! VOTE!

I wish to tell you a story about a slave who had gained his “Freedom”, and every time he entered a town or seen on the road, he was noticed immediately and questioned. Why? Because slaves could not travel alone, anywhere, and when on a road or in a town, a slave was with his master, and if not, he was approached by a Slave Master so-called [White man] and questioned — [where are your papers?] and he would become submissive, with eyes to the ground still being treated and looked upon as a slave, although he was a “Free Man.” If he did not humble himself, he would be Murdered!
This is still true to this very day. When you are driving in your nice expensive car that you’ve worked hard to buy, headed home in your upscaled neighborhood, you are pulled over and questioned. What is demanded of you? [Where Are Your Papers?] Once again, you MUST humble yourself or you might be Murdered! Ask the Rapper (T.I.), what happened to him in (March? 2018) — when he left his keys and tried to enter his upscale [a gated community]. He made it home to his family that night, but Breona Taylor, George Floyd and many others did not. What historical events does these actions resemble?

The [Gestapo, a secret police force of the Germany Nazi state, notorious for its terrorism, brutality and murder tactics], and there’s nothing you can do about it. The United States has now become “THE RISE OF THE FOURTH REICH,” meaning: “Internal Secret Police Forces” under the guise of protecting the American people and “The Department of Homeland Security,” has made the U.S. a Militarized Police State: Totalitarian / Authoritarian Rule. Can you see Trump now? And what is Congress doing about it? NOTHING!
To deepen my point; in an article written by Keith Johnson: Federal Grants Pay to Militarize Local Police. And since September 11, 2001, thousands communities across America have taken advantage of more with $34 billion in central government grants to equip police and sheriffs’ departments with assault rifles and exotic military weaponry.
In 2011 alone, approximately $2 billion in grants were awarded by the Department of Homeland Security, along with $500 million more allotted to existing programs. The accounting for this expense was recently compiled by the Center for Investigative Reporting and detailed in a report, America’s War Within: Homeland Security and the first 10 years of the war on terror. After reviewing records from 41 states and interviewing over two dozen officers and terrorism experts, researcher G.W. Schultz concludes that police departments have transformed into small army-like forces.
Federal grants are just one avenue police are using to get weaponry like armored vehicles, grenade launchers and M-16 assault rifles, suited to use on a battlefield. In 2011, the Department of Defense gave away a record total of more than $500 million worth of military surplus to local law enforcement through its little-known to the public 1033 program.
Passed by Congress in 1997, the 1033 program was created to provide law-enforcement agencies with tools to fight drugs and terrorism, writes Benjamin Carson in a article for The Daily. Since then, more than 17,000 agencies have taken in 2.6 billion worth of equipment. . . paying only the cost of delivery.
These are not given to the cops to fight terrorism, and the National Safety Council notes: . . .”You are eight times more likely to be killed by the police than by a terrorist.”

Do you now understand this article? Some may Not. Why? Because you have to be Black to understand. Its a cultural thing and even with some of our own people, they don’t have a clue, they would have to live one of these episodes first-hand to get it, and some still may not — saying; “he was just doing his job.” Just ask [CARLTON FROM THE FRESH PRINCE OF BEL-AIR]. Need I say more? Yes!

Question? What is the answer? One answer is:

We need to raise the consciousness of our men and women, at the same time making them aware of our plight. How? By teaching them how to think for themselves and who they are, how to Love Instead of Hate. And we too of like-mindedness need to live close together and share our resources. Now our goal and meeting our objective should be?

The Goal: The ultimate objective is to address the educational needs of Our people, to endow an institution of learning that would compliment the general education provided by public and private schools and colleges.

The Objective: To prepare highly skilled, committed men and women and youth who would serve the community; to effectively recruit and prepare them to become productive citizens of society and ready for full participation in life, growth and development; and to ensure community vibrancy by effectively preparing those who have live through experiences and are now ready to give back.
We must now get out and VOTE, VOTE, VOTE!!!

Peace!

Living a Life on Hold

I am unfinished. At fifty two, I am the owner of a life that feels unlived. There is a tension that runs through my days like a rubber band stretched from this moment all the way back through the years to that moment in August 1987 when two gunshots changed my life forever. At some point in each day I feel myself cringing in anticipation of that rubber band snapping! I fear that snap almost as much as I want it, because it is then (and only then), that my REAL life will begin again.

One of the most common mental tricks that men use in prison to keep their spirits up is to tell themselves that this, (prison) is not their real life, it is an interruption of their real life. Their REAL life will begin again when they get out. In fact the most common phrase you hear in prison at the begining of a conversation is; “When I get out of here I’m gonna…” And everything we do behind these walls is either aimed at getting us out, trying to maintain our community ties with family and friends, or finding ways to fill up our days and kill time while we wait on the other shoe to drop. Everything in here has a temporary feel except the place it’s self (which seems to perpetually consume the youth of our comunity).  

We live in a half dream, half nightmare, trying not to let any of the things we experience in here matter because; “When we get out..” it will all be behind us as if it never existed. We don’t say what we really mean or do what we really want because it might spark conflicts that will keep us in here longer when there is nothing in here that we value enough to make that sacrifice. What we do is opt for the least objectionable alternative in a situation full of unsatisfactory choices. But how long can a man live like this? How long can he go on treating the events of his life as if they are things separate and apart from himself? How long before he grows numb to the value of his life, when almost every choice available to him gives him no satisfaction? Creating that distance in your heart between yourself and the things in your life, ensures apathy. It fosters indifference, and often ends in an embittered soul. It’s the chief reason why so many men come home from prison seeming so “cold hearted”; because the emotional isolation required to successfully navigate long prison stays is killing their ability to become emotionally invested in the world around them.  

Without regular contact with multiple people in the free world, men in prison tend to become intellectually stagnant. They become frozen in time, relics of a bygone era. Often you can determine in the course of a conversation how old they were when they came to prison because they are often locked into that maturity level. They are living their lives in a prolonged holding pattern without the usual pressures and experiences that provoke maturity.

I came to prison at ninteen, if I left today I would leave with thirty two years of prison experience but hit the streets with the same real-world experience as that nineteen year old they locked up in 1987. With little idea of how to maintain a household, or an intimate adult relationship. All I would have are theories and supposition based largely on what I’ve read or seen on TV. Yet the people who deal with me will look into my fifty two year old face and expect more. When that rubber band snaps how long before the sting of it subsides, and what will the life that remains to me look like? Prison only prepares you to succeed in prison. It is a life lived on hold.

Willie Lynch Syndrome

What is it about a blackman that you are stereotyped as a criminal by law enforcement? This is not being done by just white police officers but black ones as well. I think you have to look at the training of police officers in general. I think that this is the psychological effect of slavery. Black men were placed as overseer’s of slaves and were harder on the slaves than the white men at times. And when Black’s were allowed to become police officers, they were out helping to enforce Jim Crow Laws. When blackmen and women were being brutally attacked by white officers you had black officers standing, watching, too scared to say something and you had some black officers who joined in not just trying to impress the white officers, but because they hated themselves so much that they hated anyone who looked like them. We call this the Willie Lynch Syndrome.

Where Have Our Neighborhoods Gone? Pt 1-Richard Dyer

In the wake of the George Floyd’s death, I have once again sat in dismay at the destruction that some protestors have done to their own neighborhoods. I then had to sit back and ask the question: “Why do we destroy our own neighborhood?” Then I began to analyze this question in the sense that; in most American black neighborhoods today, they do Not feel like our neighborhood. Why? Because of OVER POLICING!
For example: When you have a stranger / foreigner enter your neighborhood and use unnecessary force and abuse that goes unchecked for many years, this neighborhood no longer seems like your very own.
I remember growing-up in my community–neighborhood of New Orleans (17th Ward) in the 1970’s, when the police came into our neighborhood, the elders came out and needed to know what was going on, and if the police were going to arrest someone, they (the police) was either from our community or the elders knew them. They walked our neighborhood streets or drove around and talked to us, some of them even coached our little league sports teams, so we also came to know one another. And even then, they (the police) could Not take one of us to jail without someone following them to “make sure” this is where they were taking us. . . The elders policed the police.

Our elders understood that the police motto was Not the fictitious one first used in Los Angeles — [“To protect and serve.”], because we still did Not trust the police, we know what they really stool for. And if they caught you outside the hood, they would kick our butt, so it was Not all good as one may think because there were some dehumanizing events that took place that are unspeakable, but what I am saying is, we took care of our own community and did not call the play police. The moral of this article is showing that we have “lost” our sense of community due to foreigners invading our neighborhood. Why? Because your next doors neighbor who you grew-up with that became a cop no longer lives in the hood due to the (Crack Epidemic) of the 80’s, and the “You know whose” have invaded. Long gone are our elders. Now you find a thirty-four year old as our grandmothers, and the grandfathers are either dead or in incarcerated, so you tell me, what’s wrong with this picture. That’s another article to come, but this article is about; “Where Have Our Neighborhoods Gone?” Brothers and Sisters, We need Our Elders Back. . .
We are being treated by the police for what they were originally created for in the 1700’s for; “LABOR CONTROL.” Get the point? They do Not know nor do they understand Our Culture.
Now, in all that I’ve stated, I do Not wish for anyone to think or get the impression that it is okay to destroy your own neighborhood no matter how bad things may seem or to destroy anyone else’s property, because the few elders we do have left in the community will have to go on the other side of town to shop and buy medication, some may not be able to, due to age, illness, etc., so you now have to take on that responsibility of assisting them. At the same time, I understanding the looting and burning is telling America, “WE ARE FIGHTING FOR OUR LIVES!” And yes!, some of the looters are from these communities, let’s keep it real. Why? Because the more cornered one becomes the more ill-rational one acts. Until my next post.
This article was written about me understanding your plight and bringing it to your attention, showing my support, and to tell you, it is now time for our youth to step-up and Dare To Do Wondrous Things. I believe in you and no that you are more then capable of fulfilling your obligation, so let’s take back our neighborhoods and make them a Community once again. How? Register and VOTE!, VOTE!, VOTE! Take a Friend or two With You And Make A Difference, For ONLY YOU Can Change You Conditions. REMEMBER THAT! Your Elders Need You Now, For They Have Sacrificed Much For You, their Blood, Sweat and our women, many, many tears. And before endings this article I would like to give you two words:

[Disenfranchisement]: It is the “taking away” of a peoples human and legal rights; in this case, (the right to legally discriminate against the created Black man or African American), by creating a system that would incarcerate him and give them the label (Felon or criminal). This way you can legally discriminate against them and deny their right to VOTE where a real difference can be made. These things are also called:

[Social Contract]: In this manner, we are talking about, the government using punishment as a tool to control the urban communities. Meaning; the Government decides how much punishment they will implement, and these decisions are in no simple way related to crime rate. The stark and sobering reality is that, for reasons largely unrelated to actual crime trends. And the American penal system has emerged as a system of social control unparalleled in world history. And while the size of the system alone might suggest that it would touch the lives of most Americans, (the primary target of its control can vividly be seen as directed toward us).

These phrases has been defined to give an understanding of what is being discussed / related to you in this article. Although, we will be discussing these topics in articles to come, I just had to post this brief writing as a question posed to self. I wish to know, how do you feel or see this question from your perspective?

Peace!

I Can’t Breathe-James Crawford

That was the cry out from Eric Gardner, George Floyd, and many other black men that death was approaching. To me, what shook the foundation of every household no matter what race was hearing, an adult male cry for his mother, a mother who has been dead for two years. For a adult male to cry out for his mother who had died two years prior shows you the pain he felt . Some people feel like looting and burning down stores and restaurant won’t change nothing but just destroying their own community. I have to disagree with them.

From this aspect, without a violent protest, I feel there wouldn’t been charges brought against the officers. We have to look at what the F.B.I. representative said when he said “From what’s been reviewed, no charges will be brought to the officers”. Then once things intensified, the representative came back and said all footage will be reviewed before charges can be brought up against the officers.

See, the first statement was the truth about how they really feel. On another note we have to look back in history. What did the peaceful protests do besides result in people being hurt by officers, or dogs attacking them? History is repeating itself, so to me, it’s time for a change, as you can see is in the making. Almost every time a black man that’s big in stature has some type of altercation with white police officers whether it is verbal or physical, results in some type of brute force through pepper spray, taser, guns or some type of training tactic that have a great possibly of ending fatal.

Tragedy strikes again on June 12 2020. Rayshard Brooks was killed by white police officers . Another unarmed black male has been murdered for being sleep in a Wendy’s parking lot that just backed up what I mentioned above about the interaction with white police officers ending in brute force.

George Floyd losing his life changed world history. George Floyd and all other black men and women losing their lives won’t be in vain. It’s a new day and time. All the other races have black kids or black people in their lives that they sincerely love. Unity is key to over come this adversity peace.

Dear Friends, family and Followers,

From behind these walls. From the depth of our souls. From the place where GOD lives within us…., We chant so that our Ancestors hear US! “BLACK LIVES MATTER”.

May our voices echo loosening the Earth’s foundation where our ancestors are buried. We ask that they come and be with us, give us strength, purpose and direction. Because, if we live, it is only by the grace of GOD!

Sincerely, Your Son, Brother, Father and Friend

Quentin-X (Betty)
