"Thanksgiving Day literally is a holiday celebrating the beginnings of the almost total extermination of an entire race of people, commonly called "Indians" and the enslavement, continued oppression and genocide of the Afrikan, by European settlers....For over 100 years now Black folks in the United States have joined with the descendants of the same European murder[er]s who enslaved them and systematically all but destroyed the Amer-Indian, in feasting and giving thanks to God for the "opportunity" to live in one of the most racist, imperialist, and oppressive countries on earth....Black People celebrating Thanksgiving Day is like the Americans celebrating the bombing of Pearl Harbor, or the so-called Jews celebrating the rise of the Third Reich, or the Palestinians celebrating the intrusion of the settler colony of Zionist Israel, or moreover the millions of Zulu descendants who are being murdered by the thousands each day, celebrating the establishment of the Union of South Africa..."
man i have not fasted in awhile. maybe a year. So i did a 12 hour fast yesterday. it was not that bad. i put both children to sleep and they took like a 4 hour nap each. I caught up on some reading mostly. But Thanksgiving Day is a big farce. So i leave it alone. People say that i trip on stuff like that but then again, why should we allow someone else to dictate what we celebrate? that's my biggest beef if anything.
I am sure that right about now while i am typing this, people all over the country are at local stores buying stuff for Christmas (or as i like to call it -- Christ Mess) ... it must be sheer pandemonium. Crazy, see how they got us trained? like pavlov's dogs... gosh....
On Wednesday, I had to Dj at an elementary school in Portsmouth. I had loads of fun. This time, i asked whether i should play GET LO or not . i was advised not to. I was so happy. But i got like 1 million requests for it. FROM ELEMENTARY SCHOOL STUDENTS!!!
"Play Get Lo!"
"No!" i answered with a big kool aid smile on my face. Man those young people can harlem shake. When i asked if they wanted a contest, they bumrushed the Dj booth. it was bananas. Even the teachers got down. They got buckwild when i b-boyed for them. it was ill. The sad part was that they kept asking me for that Kelis song "Milkshake" which is like a straight sex song. i could not believe it. WHO LETS THE CHILDREN LISTEN TO THIS SONG?!! i mean first of all, i can see GET LO cause of the call and response in it and people may not know the slang. I guess that is why that song gets away with alot of people cause most of the slang most people don't know. BUT MILKSHAKE? i mean first off, its not all that. It sounds so wack. but the hooks are straight sexual. why would a 1st grader as me for it?
we got mad work to do ya'll.

YO! Bush went to Iraq yesterday. a straight election move. People were complaining that he has not made any of the funerals or memorial services for the soldiers who were killed in Iraq. I guess he had to do something. Racist bastard. The ill thing is that he is a puppet for corporate companies man. thats the ill thing.
