Nicki Minaj Featuring Drake - Moment 4 Life
We feel this song is great for a few reasons, one because Nicki and Drake have worked exceptionally hard to get where they are today and the second reason is because of the title “Moment 4 Life” that stands for a moment that we’ve worked so hard for and we want to cherish it forever.
Every night she sits at the edge of her bed. The lights are off and her sleeves rolled back. In her right hand, she holds the sharpest knife she could find in the house. She stares at her left arm. The scars from last night have barely scabbed up.
She searches desperately for a fresh place for the cold, metal knife to cut across her flesh and relieve her mind from the pain the world inflicts on her. There was none.
She takes her pants off and exposes her once beautiful brown legs, once silky and smooth, but now decorated with hideous, jagged scars.
She removes her shirt, forgetting that the cold, dark, lonely nights of last summer were spent tattooing scars across her chest, breast, and stomach.
For the last six years, she cried on the edge of her bed every night. The world stole everything from her: a mother, a father, friends, love, laughter, happiness, innocence, a reason to live. She had nothing left.
So, as she grabbed the knife with her right hand and raised it to her unscathed throat, she promised herself to make all the pain go away.
Just one more incision to make. As I penetrate, I promise to make the voice nobody ever listens to disappear. They won’t even notice it’s gone… They won’t even notice I’m gone…
The tears rolls from her eyes as she holds the knife tightly against her neck. Blood slowly trickles from the left side of her neck. She slides the knife quickly across her throat. She maintained the driving force from her determination to release herself from a world of pain as she penetrated the last of her unscathed skin.
The knife fell from her right hand onto the bed beside her, staining the white sheets with blood only she have known. The blood glistened in the darkness. Her body fell motionlessly to the floor. Just Another Teenager Suicide.
Anonymous asked: What Movement?
A movement that will rebuild the black community and restore pride and dignity back to our race. We will no longer be seen as a detrimental, uneducated, violent, disunited people.
We don’t need to look on the internet or open a book to know what’s going on in our neighborhoods. We can look out the window and see the killing, drug dealing, gangs, dropouts, prostitutes, homeless, alcoholics. We can sit in our living rooms and see the abusive parents, the single mothers, the absent fathers, the lack of food. We can go to school and see the lack of resources, the crowded classrooms, the unqualified teachers, the failing test scores. It’s right in front of us and has been right in front of us for a very long time. And I don’t know about you, but I am sick and tired of looking at it.
Anonymous asked: I like the new direction of your blog. What inspired it?
My bestfriend Kelcey. Thanks . I think it’s a good direction.
Yesterday, I have read over 100 statuses complaining about the Republican takeover across America. “Fuck Scott Walker” “Fuck Republicans” “Why Didnt You Vote?” “No More Affordable Health Care, Food Stamps, Welfare, Etc.” Their complaints were completely justified. We are all scared. Especially poor blacks. But what does this really mean?
I see this as an opportunity to get organized and let our voices be heard to the one party that don’t give a fuck about us. I’m really tired of all the damn complaining that has been done over the last 56 years by black people. What the fuck are WE as RACE and a PEOPLE doing to fix our own situation? Did you think white people were the ones that wanted slavery to end ? No . It Was Us. Was it the white man that wanted desegregation and led the Civil Rights Movement? No. It Was Us. Was it the white man that saw the need for black people to defend themselves against our oppressors and formed the Black Panther Party? No It Was Us.
Joseph Cinque, Frederick Douglass, Harriet Tubman, Sojourner Truth, W.E.B. Du Bois, Thurgood Marshall, Marcus Garvey, Rosa Parks, Bayard Rustin, Martin Luther King Jr. , Malcolm X, Huey P. Newton, Four Little Girls, And countless others. They did not sit around and wait for the white man to improve their conditions. They organized themselves and made our government change it’s structure so that we will not be oppressed.
We know that the motives of the Republican Party is to keep us in a oppressive socioeconomic state. So we need to remember what those millions of Africans and Blacks died for and died doing. We need to organize ourselves and let our voices be heard. We need to speak out against the government. We Need To Start Caring About Our Own Welfare Because The Government Shole The Fuck Dont !
