Stereotypes has always been a factor in our social ladder. Being that the white man can’t jump or a dark skinned American is a super-predator in society. When we combine this with what it means to make music. It holds a stigma on what it means to be an artist. Which would make the people that are in suits, invest dollars into a marketing campaign. That promotes the stereotypes of a certain ethnic group. It is hard for a rapper to tell the truth when he is confided in a box of stereotypes. Being unique sells, but being that of a cloth. Helps the cut become clear in the eyes of the audience. Humans like to see the depiction of a person torment happening in real time. Being the center stage on gods podium. Showcasing self-destruction on the highest realm.
When in reality, the voice behind this artistic form is expressing an out-reach of their environment. If we look at Gucci Mane, he has always been seen as a person that indulges in behavior that would land someone in prison. Having many media beefs, fighting an active citizens guard and even sprawled rap beefs that landed mainstream media attention. Gucci Mane was herald as one of raps terrors. Which helped boosted his marketing campaign through the roof. After getting out of prison, he had a chance to reintroduce himself as more than a rapper. He introduced us to a clean Gucci, living the life of the rich and famous. In most cases, is sad. When this person was being championed as a super-criminal. Instead of get the proper help he needed when he was out. This is the case of most artist. We glorify their self-destruction until their demons eat away at their vital being.
When we see rappers that are spreading truth. It is often seen as a bore, being a rapper is not good enough. You actually have to embrace the ethos of the streets. Which in all cases is fine. But people are in love with gang culture, which is a thing among a young hustler trying to find his circle of niggas getting to the money. When all of America can not wait to throw this at his next court hearing. Just to put it in writing, that artist of this genre proves to America that we are borderline terrorist. This is not healthy for the mindset of Americans. Again and again, we are accepting nigga-bashing on a platform we’re the teachings of white supremacy helped mold a view point of an inner-city kid.
Rap artist can’t tell societal truths until we accept that this mold has to be broken. Yes, I love to shine. But I shined from the gravel Thomas Jefferson and his cohorts buried us under. Taking advantage of the narcotics that was flown overseen and even extorted inside a crooked cops nose. When I tell the truth, I am even seen as the problem still. Ready to be persecuted again and just be thrown into the court house. Even worse, have my own people go against me. With me having to embrace a me against the world mentality. Now there is nothing wrong with a person expressing themselves in a way that grants them escapism. When I tell the truth, do not write a bullet with my name on it.
Right now, there are at-least fifteen-hundred refugees marching to U.S soil. Migrating from their homeland Honduras because of the crime rate. Economic hard-ship has taken a toll on it’s people their. Gang activity has risen off the charts, surpassing that of Americas most violent cities. As the people march trying to find a better life. America wants to keep them in detainment. The National Guard has control on the situation at hand, guarding the U.S Border. Donald Trump has stated some criminals are apart of the caravan to America.
People has had accounts of being in Honduras. A Local Student gave her perspective on what is taking place in her home country. She said it is a very dangerous place. So dangerous that when they tried to take her brothers car, her brother received a wound, getting shot in the back. A couple more statements I read is that the people work from sunrise to sundown. Only to bring home five dollars. With that five dollars they have to be able to support their families. Situations like these create issues of human-trafficking and the selling of their kids. Local politicians have no worries, their aim is to get rich. America has tribute at-least millions of dollars to their economic structure. Only for the hands of greedy people to take it for their own benefit and gain.
Economic elites have a closed networking group among the politicians in Honduras. President Juan Orlando Hernandez, is helping strengthening the corruption in Honduras. Illegal trade is taking place right now, helping fly drugs in and out the country. This would explain the gang violence that is happening in the country. As the countries black market is a way to strengthen the peoples survival in a country that is war torn. Nobody is helping the people their, instead people are being taken advantage of. It makes me wonder who is the corporations and criminal ties that is pushing this agenda. It all comes down to the almighty dollar.
From my point of view, this has always been a context in a society we’re man wants to rule over a body of people. Only to end up for exploitation of their country to happen. As these people march the borders. They have trauma, feeling as if the world they we’re born into is cursed. No-love for their people, only to create immigrants that are like Tony Montana out the movie Scarface. Some people are flying to U.S soils from this country to birth their children. But, only the rich are taking advantage of this situation. While the poor are dealing with government corruption and the rise of gang activity. The people in Honduras should take a stand together instead of kill off one another. As this situation mirrors economic hard-ship in America with minority groups. How long are we going to let corrupt political power and businesses take advantage of us as a people ?
Many conspiracy theorist say that companies like PepsiCo, Mcdonalds and Wendy’s work with companies like Senomyx to use the proteins out of a fetus to enhance the artificial flavors. Pro-life Oklahoma Senator Ralph Shortey presented a bill that prohibits the use of stem cell research to be used in food. The FDA is unaware of said practices being used in the manufacture of food processes. People reached out to these major companies to seek answers. All corporations involved said no. Sometimes. I myself speculate on the use of aborted fetuses. Here in recent news, Detroit Funeral Homes has been caught hording fetuses. They say that some of them have been sold to WSU science department. Further research I have seen that Fetuses can run on the black market for thousands of dollars.
I am pro-life because of the money that goes into the pockets of big business. Yes, there is a business to everything that is involved. Especially when we have scientist in confidential Grey Zone labor-ties conducting their next experiment into finding out “cures” for humanity. When some would say these scientist also help create diseases, enhanced bio-terrorism and cloning experiments. Horrifying secretes that you would see in a sci-fi movie or on a youtube conspiracy channel. Don’t get me wrong, in this country woman have choices. But when we think of the funding that goes into: war, business and propaganda. That same money can be used to fix the societal ills so we do not have to be faced with abortion rates rising.
Through my findings, African-Americans are the largest group in the abortion rate. Along with Hispanics and people that are facing economic hardship. To my speculation, this leads me to believe blacks are still going to be at the lowest of American totems pole but still be the most used. In our work force and for the use of government and media exploitation. Devalued life has always been seen in our ghettos. Nobody has never stop to question the use of our system, and why things are the way they are. People say the genetics is unique, so why not keep minorities of different ethnic groups uneducated. Have planned parent hood not get the funding needed to excel. School systems fall aback even more and the continuation of family homes we’re escapism is needed through media outlets that showcase a minstrel show. So we can keep profiting on the use of abortion clinics to further the scientist in America.
The practices of fetuses being used for medicine and stem cell research proves the value of a woman. Woman help brings the creation of these DNA particles into existence so we can experiment. Still yet, they are being exploited through sexual idealization. So we can have the next billionaire republican come in. See the down-fall of we’re we are going wrong as a civilization and then capitalize off of it. Still woman are going to be paid little in the work force and not see the fruits of their labor get celebrated as a man would. Why do you think we have so many woman choosing to rebel against the mold of family ?
When not having a pot to piss in, you’re back is against the wall. The walls that are caving in on thy back, slowly falling back with the gravel mid-air. You have to make sixteen ways to eat and forty ways to breath. You instantly awaken the will-power to survive. The will power to swim through the sides that are soon to meet you on the fall. You will not let the tides take you down stream without a fight. On the fall you strap yourself onto the rocks that are falling with you before you drop. Praying you do not sink on the fall.
Splash ! As soon as you hit the currents with the rocks. You being on this massive bolder lessened the impact of the crash. Yo body is not shattered. As you fall into the deep abyss you see the light as you stare up. You swim upward seeking the light for survival. You made it out of the shallow murky water that even octopuses, massing to the size of New York got swallowed by. Crying because you swim with no compass. Not knowing when the destination ahead will be your escape. You just know, the past is in hindsight and the future is now. You keep swimming and hoping until your body has met the sea shore.
A negative mind can keep a person in the rut. As someone as myself, when I experience negative thinking, I experience negative self. Which creates a will for not being able to do. Have you ever been so down, you begin to question what you got going on. It affects your personal growth heavy. Why mess up the hustle you got going on when you have everything you need right in front of you. When thinking on what we do not have. It creates a lot of whys? When we need to create an now. A now on what we have. As cliche as it sounds, respect what you have and are. Then the things that you have will respect you more.
The rumination I have on my past. Sitting back looking at people around me have their own way. Me, still feeling stagnate on what I could have more of. Sometimes people say, switch what you do if it originally does not work for you. Which in some cases can be true. I believe, it is all in taking advantage for a growth. A growth that is so powerful only you and god are going to witness this personal evolution. Then that is when new gates of opportunity will open. New respect on a new found vision because you seen were you been at in the past.
Darkseid was created by Jack Kirby for his New Gods series that aired in 1970. Darkseid is a god in Apokolips, controlling people eliminating the power of free will. Darkseid strength was able to go against Super-Man and The Holy Genesis. Darkseid rules with an iron fist over Apokolips. Even after being brutally beaten by Super-man and tossed down to his nation. The people mobbed around him looking like they we’re ready to attack. Instead Super-man exclaims, Darkseid is finish, you may do your will to him. Instead, they pick him up then carried him off into his kingdom. Only to halt his people, so he can tell Super-man that he is a god to his people. Darkseid has eyes that are melting to the flesh. No literally, he can stare at you and melt any human who stands in his way. Super-Man was almost killed because of Darkseid power. Instead, Super-man grabbed gravel off the ground then shoved it into Darkseid’s face until the room imploded from the two opposing power-forces.
Darkseid would be comparable to Madara. Both have special eye gifts that grant them unnatural abilities in their universes. Both characters have a will to control all of man kind. Believing that their control will make all of humanity better. The confidence inside of both characters come from many of hard battles. Darkseid battled against The New Genesis, waging war until a truce was finally called. Making alliance’s by exchanging their first born within their family heir. Madara has the same kind of method. Fight a bloody war until the last one victors out on top. The difference between the two, Madara’s intentions are completely passionate. With the loss of his little brother, Izuna , he lost all sanity. Both sides suffered causalities losing a family member of their own. Darkseid was purely ego, he wanted to rule all of the universes with his will. Darkseid is considered the God Of Evil in the DC Universe.
I first discovered Terra Lightfoot from the single, No Hurry. I was quite impressed by the songs up-beat tempo and vocals I find unique. The song has no consequences when you enjoy the powerful vocals passionately exclaiming there is No Hurry. The song lyrics remind you of a love ballad. Showing us a very troubled affair that can’t escape from your mind. The song claims that they have an eternity to spend together so it is no hurry. Enjoy the time that is spent with each other even though there are troubles on the path.
Their latest album “New Mistakes”, Terra Lightfoot release a video for their song, “Ruthless”. This single compared to No Hurry has more of a slowed tempo with elements of country. The lead singer hits a falsetto as she sings about her hard-core love she have for someone. The visuals for this song has her in a room by herself strumming a guitar. Walking through a snow-storm. The video shows her band members absent and she sits down as memories of them play on a dated B&W television. Could this song be expressing the love she has for her band members and them not being there.
