I’m inspired to write this but I’m not really sure why. Maybe it’s because I have children maybe it’s because of all of the black lives lost by both black and blue. Whatever the reason I’m inspired to write this piece because for some reason I’m overwhelmed as I reflect on how we got here. […]
I’d like to first state that we are at war and have always been at war with white America. Police officers killing black men, women, and children is nothing new. It’s as old and common as the Country itself. I believe this is a well-known fact but what most of us failed to understand is […]

Born winners don’t cry they seize. If you’re reading this you’re a winner. You might not believe it but I am telling you-you are. So why don’t you believe it? Are you afraid of what winning looks like? Are you afraid of the people you’ll have to leave behind if you allow your light […]
