This is a very serious disease* so I gladly accept the “bucket challenge”

*My heart goes out to all those who struggle with ALS but I am, of course, talking about the disease of apathy.  If (and hopefully when) Michael Brown’s killer is brought to justice and convicted of 1st degree murder, it still won’t prevent this from happening again. We cannot accept this as the status quo. We MUST continue the fight at the ballot box, in the media and by working to create systemic change. I’m not naive to the dirty politics (redistricting, voter ID requirements, etc) that will try to prevent us from our goal. But I refuse to give up hope. My “bullet bucket challenge” is not about pointing fingers and it’s not about being angry. Every shell casing in that bucket represents the life of someone who fought and died in the goal for civil rights and human dignity. As a member of law enforcement (yes I really am a reserve sheriff) I will not stand idly by while others violate civil and human rights under the cover of authority and I will insist that other good cops rise to the same standard as well. As a black man I will demand more from myself and my community. I will not allow outsiders to co-opt our struggle in order to commit violence in our name. I’m channeling my outrage into action so I no longer feel powerless. It’s not about black or white. It’s not about rich or poor. It’s about us vs. them. There are more of us — from all races, genders and identities — then there will ever be of them. And we will be victorious.

Had a talk with a friend on Relationships and I said…

But I will say this to you. You need to be picky about who you want your future with. Make sure she mentally, physically and emotionally stimulates you. Make sure she inspires and drives you. There’s no sense in wasting time with non-sense and spot fillers on your roster when you’re looking for an MVP. Don’t settle till you find something better. All you’ll be doing is wasting time on the wrong one(who could potentially mess up sumbody who’s the real thing), and you’ll be opening up the door to unwanted and in needed drama. Fuck the bullshit and let yourself be happy. Find out and know what you want and what you can give and find the right 1 to give it to and who can give you what you need as well.
