“Whenever men and women straighten their backs up, they are going somewhere, because a man can’t ride your back unless it is bent,” words spoken by Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

See when these words were delivered, it was at a time when waters hoses were being sprayed on little boys and girls, parents and grandparents. Where K-9 units where being used to not sniff out a crime scene for drugs and other substances, but were indeed called to attack humans because Jim Crow said so. Where trees, which covered the grassy front yards, were bleeding of human blood from bodies being hung! So, now this is what we came to.

See we live in a generation where the mirrors we do look to have no reflections! And without a reflection we do not have any direction and that’s why we are dealing with attitudes of inconsistent patterns with people who have no testicular fortitude! So, why does this seem to be a consistent problem. The problem lies within this political propaganda being presented on these bias news stations to strike fear in the hearts and minds of our people.

We see this action become reality when we get politicians telling us to vote against something or someone, but you’re not gonna put fear in me because fear and God do not occupy the same space. I do not make no pardon or no excuse me sentence for the words I’m about to say. Our ignorance on many topics, such as Race Relations, Civil Rights and politics are making us illegitimate children of this country.
