Haugh Haugh I am walking on street of gold

Did you know Jesus Christ done saved my soul

I’m swinging up here on golden stairs

And on my mind there is not even a care

So State of Georgia the jokes on you

Those pearly gates I just went through

Having blessed drinks with Father Abraham

Told Mother Mary thank you mam

I asked her to tell Jesus to please pray for me

And I praise God that I am free

in the 70’s. From the first time I watched a Boxing match–“I was hooked” on the sport–which some

affectionately call the “Sweet-Science.” Over the years, I have become a faithful fan to many

fighters like Roberto Duran, Sugar Ray Leonard, Muhammad Ali, Alexis…

AFRICAN AMERICANS ARE THE WORST.

African Americans have given up on reading, and African American politicians dare to support a sitting black U.S. president out of fear of being called a ni@#er lover by white politicians.



The New York Times refers to Barack Obama as the last black politician. White journalist asks each other out loud, “What’s going with progression, evolution and rehabilitation in the black community”?



The reply is nothing happening in the black community. There is no movement of…

Glass shards falling like glistening rain

 

It seems many have forgotten that hateful day

When they stood by tv’s starting to pray

But I will never forget and I don’t want to

I’ll always remember the…
