Facing Giants

Do you believe enough in yourself to face the giant?

 

It May Turn Into Gold!

Keep trying to be who you want to be.  Keep trying to achieve what you want to achieve.  Let only death be the barrier that stops you in this lifetime.  Don't give up. 

 

Got Damn it Hurts!

All is fair in life and business, they say, but got damn somethings really hurt. In order to grow, you must be willing to feel the pain.

Is America really a melting pot? If yes, then why are will still tackling with racism and police brutality against blacks in 2020? Could it be that racism is only the symptom of a greater cause?  It's undeniable that white privilege exist in America, not because it's the will of some benevolent super daddy as I was taught growing up, but because humans built a system of laws on top of laws that intentionally and barbarically elevated and biased the minds of one group of people as white and superior over another group of people, as niggers and inferior.  And this distorted mentality on both sides have been passed down through the generations as righteous, destiny, and impenetrable. It's time that we manifest a new destiny!

Is Religion Needed?

Watch Now:

 

Jeremiah Camara is a visionary and is extremely logical.  And as I allowed myself to listen more to his content like Slave Sermons, other interviews he had on other media, and read his books like Doubting Thomas, I couldn't deny, even when I wanted to, that he made some excellent logical and very reasonable points. And because I was focusing my life more on becoming the student and teacher of my own life by expanding my thoughts, learning myself, teaching myself, challenging myself and designing the life I wanted to live, I could not deny that religion came with a lot of parameters that I could no longer be beholden to if I truly wanted to construct a life of my design.  And eventually this led me to a question that I now ask you:  is religion needed?

This has been another week that just weighed heavy on my heart.  Another senseless killing of a king. The deaths of Ahmaud Arbery, Sean Reed and others are just too much.  I have a son.  I have nephews. I have cousins.  I have other family and friends.  I sometimes feel like losing in this world is a black person's fate, but it is not. I realize now that we have just been seeing life through the wrong prism.  It's time to change the paradigm by which we live and by which we believe and then we can live in perpetual wins. We can stop the madness that has haunted our people.

Are you ready for a win?  

I SHALL NEVER FORGET!

I shall never forget.  That's all I got to say.
