Nigger is just a word. The terms Black, White, Caucasian, Chink, Mexican..they are all words. Do you ever wonder what it would be like without them?

I've heard of so many Black people confessing that they hate members of their own race.And why?They say because of the image that they give out..the image that is seen by the many opposing races. But how could you hate an entire race because of the choices that individuals make?And even worse, how could you hate an opposing race just because… Continue

Divorce is not a happy thing.

I'm getting divorced. It's fucking poison on the soul. I hate her. And you don't see it coming when it happens to you. At a younger age and I have climbed to the mountain to see tghis kind of pain. I know no one that has reached it, and I recommend they don't.

My Fanhood is suspended indefinitely

If you were in elementary/middle school during the Bills playoff/SuperBowl runs in the early to mid 90's I beg of you, end the madness.We've given our fanhood to the Bills unconditionally for 20+ years w/o getting angry. We've made excuses for them over and over and by and large fed into the culture of mediocrity that has defined this town and our sports teams.

Fuck that.

I will not call my self a Bills fan until they make the playoffs again. For you "die hard"… Continue

And Baby

I've been roadside just waiting

to see those eyes that take me

that break me down

down (2x)

Nah theres no… Continue

So many of you know this and I have blogged about it before, but I've been working on a news package and related online content on afro-punk since July.

The idea came from my BFF Julia who took me to a show about 4? years ago. I had a great time and it always stuck with me that this was a positive community doing a lot of cool shit. Fast forward to 2008 and Julia reminds me that the Afro-Punk fest is coming up. I joke with her that I'm going to try to get my work to let me do a piece… Continue
