To Perform Or Not To Perform

   
      With the recent controversy over Beyonce Knowles's "Formation" video and performance at Super Bowl 2016 one would wonder is a revolution coming. No, because black folk are already here. We are accomplished and we are more and more representative of the semi-prestigious middle class of America. Excuse me but some of my followers my be taken aback by some of my views and statements in this post. Just as they where taken aback to "Formation" and to Kendick Lamar's performance at the Grammy's. Hold on to your seats, because African Americans are ready to affirm there rightful place in society.


                                          


            "Cause I slay!" This is a term spoken in Beyonce's Bae Bowl (what Beyonce fans called Super Bowl Fifty) song. It is also a urban term that is being shopped around on all forms of media nowadays. Simply put it means "I rule, I hold the whip now". Beyonce is stating that she is in power and is using the song to empower. Yeah, some is like "But she shaking her a$! though". Yes, she is and she is making a sound announcement to the world while doing it. Stating that blacks in America aren't just sitting around and taking the injustice done to us. But rather we are grabbing the bull by the horns, taking it down and calling it our b$@?!.

       I just recently watched a great documentery The Black Panthers: Vanguard Of The Revolution Directed by Stanley Nelson. If you watch the last quater of the doc. it will reveal that toward the end of The Black Panthers reign women took on many leadership roles. There was a role reversal that leveled out any sexism that may have lingered. Black woman are are strong beings and have no problem supporting and even stepping up for there black men. So many years of the divide of the black household upstarted by unnamed sources and government entities. People speak of conspiracy but the truth lies in audio, video and docturine. Many just choose to dispell the information which is presented.

      I say to my black people to hold fast and trust in the lord. He has brought us further then we could have brought ourselves. In the infamous words of James Brown "I'm black and I'm proud." I have no problem being proud of my race and if you are of African decent neither should you.

New Beginings

          Hello all. This post will be simple, raw, and thought provoking. I have decided to write all my furture blog content free form. Meaning whatever is on my mind for the week is what I'm posting. With that being said this blog post is about new beginings.     First let me reintroduce myself. I am Lenwood Wilson,  Jr.. Please do note the junior, lol. My nickname name growing up was Chip or Big Chip. The nickname name was given to me at birth. It was to symbolize that I would be like my father; ie "Chip off the old block!". My father wasn't around for me after age 5. I am glad to say the negative parts of his character never rubbed of on me.    I grew up in the high crime city of Baltimore, MD U.S.A.. Primary none for sensless killings, drugs and H.I.V.. I was not a homebody and most of my friends where deep in the drug game. I made a conscious choice never to sell drug. I still hung out with my friends whether just chilling, beef or drug transactions. I can only

Try A Triathlon: Matthew Bailey

            Do not ever say that you can't do something if you have never tried. On July 17, 2015 a 9 year old  diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy competed and finished the Castle Howard Triathlon in North Yorkshire, England. This boy's name was Bailey Matthews. He did what most adults couldn't even imagine accomplishing. His determination and will to do is all he needed to amount such a daunting task. Of course much planning and training took place but that is all a part of completing any given goal.           Inspired by his experience last year Bailey has organized a triathlon for kids with disabilities called the "Be More Bailey Triathlon". He has warmed so many hearts and inspired so many people. Now he is using his acclaim for the betterment of others. This is so great. One of the biggest thing anyone can do is be of good service to others. I saw him do a interview after the race and he said something so cute but encouraging "I figured I'd giv

Learn to Love Yourself: Fight For Your Furture

    This might sound cliche but it's the bold truth, that you have to fight for what you want. And the harder you scuffle the closer you come to obtaining it. That goes from everything in life from job promotions, respect in a relationship, equality among peers and on and on. Sometimes the battle is to move forward or away from someone or something. Never stop fighting. If you do that means you have let down your guard. If you let down your guard you give away the control you have over your life. This is part two of my "Learn to Love Yourself." Series. In part one I helped you find your true worth. This time around I will prepare you to become a warrior so you can brawl for it all.         "Some people die at age 25..." - Benjamin Franklin. I first heard that quote from the world renowned Les Brown. The quote means some people give up on there true aspirations and dreams at age 25. Some people that we deem to be successful aren't exactly happy. This i
