Why Rev. Sharpton and Prof. West are Right

By Eric M. Deadwiley

April 29, 2011

GETTING UP DAY

Getting up

Getting up is not the term

But Easter means dead

So I'll see you in the Morning

Is what my Jesus said

Saints don't die they just sleep away

And when the trumpet sounds

No grave will be able to hold my body down

That same power that he has

Will get me up some day

And I am looking foward to the time

That I am caught away

Life Of An Ethnic Writer

 

 "Drop It Like its Hot" and "Pull Over That A$$ is Too Phat"? What the heck have "we" spiraled down into?

 

My brother- sweet brotha when is it okay to show your under pants while calling women outta their names? Do you not realize the style of the" sag" was invented to make you slower for the cops to catch?  No respect for yourself or my life. Where has your crown gone? The one made of cowrie shells and wisdom poured from the Atlantic, Pacific and Irovy Coast. My…

Don't Push Hard......Let Your Work Speak for Itself

Someone said to me, "You shouldn't have to push hard.  Let your work speak for itself."  I thought about it......and thought of the things that you don't have to push but are present.  I thought about the time I would spend waiting for "action" just because the object was there.

 

For example, doors, windows, routes of entry and exits.  If we don't push, and sometimes with force, we'll never make that step in or out.  What about representation of who we are?  We give the…
