    may i explain my analysis of love and pain for a Lott of them...

    see.... a Lott of them think i hate them when i expose america's Lott of hatred and hidden agendas
    within the sinate and house of
    represintatives
    of the which a great part of those gerontocrats voted against
    civil and voting rights
    and are bringing havoc to this nation
    that they have sown
    and won't us to "forget about the past" when a commemmoration
    of Sept.11 will never be outgrown but....

    A Lott of them are not racists/ a lot of us
    take their places
    and it's a conditioned response
    blind
    and def i await the day when there's no more of either but
    i won't hold my breath
    b/c knowledge is passed down from generation to generation
    and
    takes it process of mental penetration
    manifested in forms of hate crimes and "don't interracially date" crimes like at Bob Jones University
    banning potential love and life
    husband and wife b/c they adhere and contribute to racial strife..

    through the international drama.. here's the internal drama i see....

    like a Lott of them violating the noise ordinance
    playing Hip Hop
    or should i say Nelly, rather
    or maybe Master P but would they really be
    "bout it bout it" if racial chaos struck (God forbid)
    i doubt it doubt it
    A Lott of them never play that real conscious Hip Hop like Common or Slum Village even Outkast
    but songs that will "blast a *****" and "**** a *****" will make a Lott of them believe
    that that's our level of class even with a degree attached to our ***..

    why is it that when my people show
    them in poetry
    or music, maybe in politics the mirrors of their prejudices and practical bigotry
    A Lott of them respond like it's really me or really us?? like it's racist to bring up those racists
    who teach their children billy and molly to take their places and spit in peoples faces
    and i'm supposed to not make a conscious mention
    but be jolly
    A Lott of them think that's it's peaceful to ignore the reality instead of confront and change it....

    little by little A Lott of them will go away until it's just "a lot" and not a "Lott"
    but to hate them, we can not
    but to be conscious, we can will until the minds heal.....

    group of people

    excelent piece

    A Lott of them are not racists/ a lot of us
    take their places

    a lott of us make our beds hard.....forgetting that we have to lie
    in them
    only to complain about how uncomfortable it is when...we do
    and yet...when pookie and ray ray are slinging their product
    dispensing death and dispair throughout the community
    ...a lott of us celebrate that which they do...as part of their
    entrepreneurial spirit...meanwhile...the cries and moans
    of the children of their customers....well...a lott of us
    ain't really tryin' to hear it....`cus it's a hustle ya'll
    making the best of a poorly dealt hand...so what if someone
    gets hooked....sacrificed....they didn't have to buy it....man!!
    and...also...a lott of when looking in the mirror....look a lott
    like trent...and if i have to explain to you why that is.....
    then evidently....you missed the message..in the reply i just sent!!!

    may GOD bless...keep and rescue us all....from our natural selves!

    p.s. a most definitive and thought provoking piece...my brother!
