It's May - already. Spring is in full swing, and Summer is quickly approaching. It doesn't take a spiritually inclined person to realize that time isn't waiting, in fact, it's moving quickly. This means that there's no time to wait. The word of this month is "Go". This is the month of action. There is no space for hesitation this month. Hesitation will mean missed opportunity. If you are feeling uncertainty, or if this raises feelings of anxiety, recall the fact that you've been preparing and have been prepared for this very moment. You are ready. Consider the commercial plane....
Nipsey, you earned my respect. I first heard of you back in like ‘07 when you was making a footprint in NY. I couldn't embrace you immediately because you reminded me too much of Snoop - I questioned your authenticity - you know this industry quick to recreate and repackage.

Surviving R Kelly was long and emotionally exhausting. By Episode 3, I was beyond clear on my conviction, R Kelly was the piece of sht I had always regarded him to be.

The Nike ad featuring Colin Kaepernick was not a win for the Black community nor did it directly address the issue of police brutality. A day after the unveiling of the brilliant Nike Ad, Botham Jean, an unarmed Black man is killed in his own home, murder mystery style, and Justice for his family and community is still pending - per usual. While members of the Black community scramble to find Justice for yet another slain, Nike proudly announces a 10 percent rise in revenue to $9.95 billion and a 15 percent jump in profit to $1.1 billion in...
