Last night I heard you cry, but there was nothing that I could do.  My dreams becasme over-powered by nightmares when i tried reaching out to you.  Cold shit, I hate to admit it, but I couldn't blame you if you walked away.  I'm saying when love can't prevail hearts are lead astray.  But then again ---friends again, searching souls thick through thin.  Whne it's supposed to be over the fire is rekindled igniting abrand new start; one love and tw hearts.  So I'm saying last night I heard you…

I have the answer to end gun violence in America. However I have no one willing to help turn my vision into reality.

Hello, my name is Emmanuel Barbee. I am a new urban author as well as a new entrepreneur. I refuse to continue to wait on old school Civil Right's leaders like Operation Push, Chicago NAACP and the Chicago Urban League to decide when they want to work with me. The established Civil Right's Movement are unwilling to allow fresh ideas to have a voice. It's time for a new generation of leaders, drawn from the masses, not the elite.

This is why I wrote my book "The Solution For Black…

Trying to recruit others from around the country to come to Chicago and join my cause

Hello, this is Emmanuel Barbee

 

I have over 10,000 people who claim they are interested in my cause yet when push comes to shove they become ghost.  You don’t have to be afraid we are not buggin. Our focus is on creating jobs in da hood & working with single black mothers & single black fathers. We will only assist those families that want our services. The only reason why our young people are in the drug game or become career criminals is because no one will hire…

I NEVER SHALL FORGET YOU

I NEVER SHALL FORGET YOU

 

 

Dear Zachery I miss you and I just want to say

I thank you very much for the love you sent my way

It was there in your dear smile

And you eyes that shined so bright

It was there in your grin

And in all your love and light

Elite members of Congress

Questions:

Is it fair for members of Congress or Government in general to receive lifetime salary and benefits? 

Is fair for their family members to be exempt from repayment of student loans?

Oprah and Tyler - What do they owe us?

I've been reading quite a few discussions and opinions about Oprah and Tyler gaining success due to the support of African Americans and yet giving very little back.  This has been said in communities, organizations, through the literary world of authors and readers, even between other well known people; such as Spike Lee and other entertainers.  In reading what the media provides in regards to these icons gains, contributions, and yes their efforts to be the lead for many African Americans,…

DEAR BLACK AMERICA 2011 AND BEYOND

Everytime I read something of this nature from conscious black power nationalist or revolutionary thinkers it is always how we have been duped, played, had, used, deceived, bamboozled or tricked.



Out of curiosity do we ever win? Have we ever devised a plan where we tricked the devil, duped,… Continue
