Hello World! To whom it may concern: I am tired of inaction. I am tired of hashtags. I am tired of one-sided freedom. I am plain ole tired of living in fear that I will intimately know the next brother or sister who is unjustly murdered and forgotten in this land of freedom. I am putting […]
Hello World, I write this post with a heavy heart and utter disbelief. Greed and envy are two of the most dangerous and disrespectful sentiments one can boast, secretly or openly. Huntsville, AL, do you not want more for yourself than the crumbs they are tossing to you?? Every day and night there is another […]

I wonder if these girls have ever seen an episode of Teen Mom on MTV…hmm. Yes, some Black kids don’t graduate, but hey, some Whites/Asians/Latinos do not, either.
The real answer is to work together to curb these instances rather than mock, ridicule, and rant against each other.
Woe is the future …
