“The idea that sex is something a woman gives a man, and she loses something when she does that, which again for me is nonsense. I want us to raise girls differently where boys and girls start to see sexuality as something that they own, rather than something that a boy takes from a girl.”
— Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

Ok now y'all know what is wrong with this generation... Martin Luther King died so nicki MInaj could be on mtv or travel around America without being lynched and so her ass could go to public school alongside white kids. Martin Luther King went to jail so her ass could have a shot of college... Nicki only teaching them to be🎻🎻🎻🎵🎵🎵...

People call my blogs controversial. I don't see controversy in standing up for what is right. It's a perspective of course. Whose Team am I on? The good people team. The good guys, the passionate teacher, the devoted minister of religion, the kind, lawful civilians and the brave, upstanding police officer.
I am not just about values. I am about human values. I am on the side of humanity. I am on the good people Team. Don't ever ask me to choose sides again. My world ain't black and white. It's gray, sometimes blue and other times red. Right now earth a run red...

Whatever you are good at be proud of it. You are preordained by destiny or by God to be somebody that stands out.
That's right. You are chosen from birth by nature of your innate capabilities to be someone great. Just by virtue of being born with the ability to draw,
Sing, write, run, do
Math and give public speeches, it means that you should never hide who you really are. Nature claimed you as the masterpiece of its creation, never hide your remarkable capabilities because you might make others fade in comparison.
Everyone has their time to shine just like the moon has the night time and the sun dominates the day. And those small stars that only twinkle like diamonds across a velvet black sky are still as big and powerful as our own sun in their own galaxies.
Do not allow anyone to make you feel ashamed of the way you are born. We don't have a choice in the way we come into this world and few of us are given a choice in how we leave.
I read a book that once said that "God does not cast pearl before swines. God will never make you into who you are if he somehow felt you would be incapable of managing your special talent.
Don't hide your talents.Even if it is one talent. Don't be like the guy who hid his one talent in the bible and lose it. I see singers discovering that they are actresses, and then they become writers,producers, inspirational speakers and directors. You go out with your one talent, work on it and you might come back with five other crimes.
Some people find it rather difficult to believe that this world that we live in is demanding new ideas, new leaders, inventors, innovators, entreprenuers and people with great ideas. Facebook was once an idea so too was this IPhone.
One must have a purpose. A will to succeed, a burning desire to see ones dream become a success. If you can dream it, nature, the universe or your god will assist you in making it a reality.
It does not matter if you are from the gutter, the leaders of this world are largely people of unborn opportunities. These people have created our civilization. Now do your part in advancing the welfare of this human race.
Don't ever scorn the Dreamer.

Hating someone is quite easy because hatred does not require a great deal of thinking. No truly intelligent person will loathe someone on the grounds of it feeling right to hate....

Kartel if you do the crime you must do the time...you queens counsel lawyer, Tavares and matlock cAan save you. No damning evidence presented though but if you are prosecuted, it will be on reasonable doubt... Circumstantial evidence points to you. Can't believe Kartel knowing how precarious and fragile his position is in this society. Renown for turning my generation into deviants...would put himself in a position to be seen as a liability...make himself dispensable. He probably assumed he was above the law.
News flash teacher... No one is above the law in Jamaica. Probably that X5 guy who killed Kahjeel Mai's is but not the World Boss.
I am wondering where are the guns that the prosecution claim Clive Lizard Williams was murdered for? That part of the story is still very much a mystery.A big one too.
I always knew Kartel would get this big. He was all the rave during high school. When I hear my alumni saying Kartel should do time you must know because his ardent supporters would never diss the world boss ever.
When you high profile in Jamaica, worst if you from a certain background and you a endorse errant or criminal lifestyle, you are not contributing to the improvement of this society. You will be removed by any means necessary.
Sometimes I wonder what makes almost every Jamaican young man believe that if he is not endorsing badmanism and errant culture then he is not respected by his peer?
The story is twofold. The Likkle badman thinks his lifestyle is illegal but somehow legitimate because he has his cheerleaders. He has a whole host of people who inspire him by sensationalizing and glorifying his illicit deeds.
Little boys would not want to become gangsters if we did not have artiste advocating gangsterism, movies idolizing James Bond and video games that help boys simulate gun slinging culture.
We have a created a culture where guns are the emblems of power and people value money more than morals. It didn't happen overtime, it happened gradual, insidious until it culminates into what we have here.
Sometimes I mused that our boys should be given a chance to rehabilitate instead of being shot dead on sight. Other times I think about how we are going to undo laziness and years of values entrenched overtime.

The human being lives as if he will never die. He spends his life acting untouchable, invincible and immortal ...
From nothing to something then back to nothing...
When he dies it as if he never lived... He was nothing before he was born and he returns to being nothing after his death.
You think we mean anything... We are all nothing. What is man at the end of the day? He is nothing...
I write my best at this hour when the world is asleep and my lamp flickers against the silence of the night.
