Location Atlanta, Georgia, United States
Introduction It is my hope that this blog will shed light on little known facts and fringe histories, stories, and personal narratives that can't be found in a textbook. This is really a melange of my opinions,ideas and feelings about topics I find interesting. As a writer, I always try to present the facts objectively but as my friends and classmates will tell you, my beliefs are about as subtle as a freight train. I say "Ya basta" at the end of my pieces because in Spanish it roughly translates to "enough already!" which is often how I feel about certain TV personalities, networks (cough cough FOX), and politicians that take us fifty years back in this delicate and promising Obama era. What can I say... It's always been my nature to speak the raw and uninvited truth on issues (past present and future) that others see yet are to afraid to speak on. I guess by being honest I've made myself the sacrificial lamb to conservatives and xenophobes alike. Enjoy :)
Interests Meeting new people, going to new and exciting places, avoiding "group think" at all costs. Speaking my mind on black issues/life both personally and politically. I love reading, writing my feelings down (so that they can't control me) and here's the kicker....CHURCH!. Yes I am an ole' time church boy. My family is from a little town called Albany, Georgia so the Holy Ghost is kind of built into my DNA lol I kid! Some would describe me as an intellectual or a militant (even though I am not "militant" and repudiate that label and the people who use it). At the core of who I am is a person that loves Christ because he first loved me. He has kept me in perfect peace and... well I could go on and on about that so never mind! lol
