Hand of the enemy

Okay ,

So as i said months ago , versus self destructing like i always said i would. I packed and moved to Boston (shout out to the three stripes). Anyway, i got a greeting i normally expect to come from somewhere like n.c s.c Atlanta (lmfao) or somewhere in that region. Pulled over arrested and hit with trumped up felony charges. At my age, I was prepared for the legal rangling but not to the extent it has reached. I have been going back and forth to court for almost 5 months. In this time i have seen justice carried in a very repugnant way. Too many minority males having to stand tall for amounts of time their angelo-saxon counterparts don't face. Then the Dr. Gates issue arose. Now what i will say is the area he lives in is close to Harvard and to most chagrin, there are projects and black in that area ( i've seen them North Cainbridge). Well with the facist attitude that each borough or city contained within Boston carries, it comes to no surprise.So it is kind of iconic that the anniversary of Do The Right Thing would coencide.This is a film that took a look at race and class in the northern society. Honestly i think we entered a treaty in the mid 90's and a facade of peace and it is now starting to splinter.Look at Paris Texas, The Jenna 6, The list goes on and on.From Tookie Williams , to the cold , vicious and callous murders out in Oakland carried out by the transit cops. I'm just waiting for this era Yusef Hawkins. But for once at least we had sembalance of a minority in power speak out.

The problem now is you can't say go back to your neighborhood, because those have been gentrified. So where to......

I guess we go the fuck back to Africa. But if we do then you go back to your caves in Europe

Discuss the rest is my piece on gentrification
