T.O.B.E.: Sugar Bear - The Other Black Experience



Legendary Black biker finally celebrated by the motorcylcle industry.

Sugar Bear's shop opened its doors in Los Angeles in 1971, with the intent to produce street rideable choppers and products. It soon became apparent that a quality custom springer needed to be built to achieve the "long" look desired by his customers.

The strong and stylish Sugar Bear Springer for which he became famous was constructed with steel (rather than tubes).…

fight - a poem

fight



running

short of breath

can’t stop or slow down

that brings instant death

hounds at my heels

dogging my steps

can’t even look back

or my soul will be swallowed

it’s not right

i’m not wrong

are you punishing me

for merely trying to exist?

this is

my Hell

rather than burn

i’m left alone in the cold



it’s easy to deny the things

you’ve never had to see

easy to disregard

all the the… Continue

ATLANTA DOESN'T LIVE UP TO THE HYPE? :-/

The people in Atlanta never seem to travel to far from the stereotypes.The seem to stay in their roles of what is considered the appropriate way of acting, dressing, and being "black." Many people in the south, especially African Americans in the south will not try something new until whatever it is becomes a popular trend, popularized by an hip hop artist, and then approved by hip hop culture.



I think back during the times of baggy jeans, and long white tees. My true

Poetry

Southern Comfort







Oh, I've seen the mistreatment by men have on her beautiful lovely face

Yet and the hard work of her hands tell the story of a life so stressful.

Weight of her backbone bares unlimited pressure of everyday living takes

place but never couldn't be broken

Years of survival has been taught by no lesson

but experience has walked her through it

time and time again.

Her tender brown feet has so many miles like a used… Continue

Is it tuesday already?

Tomorrow is extra credit day so I have to go dye fabric at school and turn it in. It should be fun.



The soccer player called today from 'Portugal'. I put it in quotes because in the back of my mind I feel like all this playing soccer all over the world simply isn't true. I'll be surprised if it is. He told me he'd be in Miami on Saturday, needless to say he isn't. I guess the deal is since the earthquake hit he's been recruited to play games to raise money for the survivors in Haiti.… Continue

Sown 63 years ago in an act of defiance, nurtured by the sheer force of will of the man whose vision gave it birth, the club stands as a monument to a golf giant who has battled…
