    OldSoul...thank you for posting this dedication to the young brother. I am glad to see that there are those who don't have short memories as it appears so many of us have, which equally accounts for why our oppressors are able to do to us what they do to us. Actually I'm a little upset also because I was the 19th person to read and hear this...and yet, there was not one dam reply concerning this on this site!

    This is the ish I be talking about when it comes to our people and us doing anything, building anything, having anything or even striving for something that we think we have but don't....FREEDOM. We forget too easily....until the child is our own without knowing that all these children are ours!! In a raw sense, we aren't any better than that white boy with one exception....THEY AIN'T GONNA FORGET OR LET IT GO WHEN ONE OF THEIRS DIE, BUT NOT US!!! FOR US IT'S JUST ANOTHER DAY.....SADLY, JUST ANOTHER DAY...THIS ISH GOT TO STOP!!!!
