We are fed images and sound bites of what is going on around us and manipulated by the gatekeepers of media until reality is a built fantasy far from the actual truth. Wealth, family, and faith has been distorted by the the media especially the industry that targets the black community.
The violent images of Ray Rice has been displayed and analyzed by a vast array of news shows snowballing into scrutiny of even college level players highlighting domestic violence. While the murder of Mike Brown that erupted into riots slowly faded into the background very curiously by the violent act of this Ray Rice without the attention on police brutality. It would seem the ugliest aspects of the black community is broadcasted and then commercialized by the music industry digested by the world until we slowly construct a new reality of others and the status of our community.

Could you sacrifice everything for someone else? I believe when those troops stormed that beach racing into certain death they won the war not just that particular battle, but the WAR.

We have cried because past injustice has wounded our soul and pain expressed itself in self-destruction. Ours sons tears filled reservoirs until the levies cracked and unsurprisingly -NO ONE CARES- enough to repair the damage. The cracks in the levies broke flooding our homes, and drowning our communities, so we look for help in earthly authorities, but by doing this we relegate ourselves as refugees. When will we seek our Father who art in Heaven and take our rightful place as heirs to the throne and our proper identity as royalty. We are a people “set apart”, but when we ignore our father we join in with the children of disobedience and share in with their judgement. We bear a pain that cuts through our soul leaving scars in our heart’s infecting our emotions, relationships, self worth, self image, and Identity. The bitter oppression poisoned our minds that we inject into our children then re-inject into our communities with words, songs, raps, and poetry that turn into cycles of self destruction. Who cares: the One who sent His only Son to die for you, and I care enough to dedicate my gift to inspire you to live out the purpose inside your seed. Jesus Christ was a seed planted with tears and blood for you to be the harvest. We must repair the cracks or very soon we will look up to find all of our communities in disaster.
