~Money Can't Buy Everything~

True there are some things money just can't buy. Don't spend your life just chasing after it. There are some people who are rich monetarily, yet are broke and empty in other ways.

~Baltimore Riot~

This is not a Black vs White thing
This is not citizen vs police thing
However, this is a right vs wrong thing
A human right thing...simple

These young people are not thugs 
they are however a people questioning a system 
a system that countlessly fails us
what you see here is more political than voting IMO. It's a cry for help 
It's the beatin' up and bruised
 looking for a way to morn. 

It really hit me last night. As a seen a white young man speak about oppression and white prevailed as if he were Black. He spoke about how his political views detached him from his parents. Isn't it amazing how someone who has a choice speaks out. Others may not have a choice because they were born Black. Poetry night amazes me you never know what you'll hear. The poetry community has found a way out.

He gave voice to the voiceless. I love this man....Malcolm X. Thanks so much for the wisdom you left behind. They may have killed the body but the spirit continues to live on!
