living in a crazy world
I decided on a whim to spend about 14 hours on the road in about 36 hours, i drove up to Oakland Saturday dropped of my ading (lil sis) and got a moment with one of my favorite people in this universe who inspires me tremendously and then went met up with dj clos to begin and work on music projects together then went to the youth speaks show and was truly inspired as always by the immense talent of the young folks spitting on stage...
As I was driving thru the neighborhoods that were once so familiar and everyday and now are only reachable when I take a road trip home, I admired my community. Oakland is where my heart is and Oakland needs love. There is so much good in this town but the news of course paints it different...
"BUT DON'T LET THE NEWS TELL IT THEY JUST WANT TO (call it a jungle) AND SELL YOU SUNSCREEN AND INSECT REPELLENT"
My city My Hood My Town, I still have faith that peace can be achieved even after seeing people shoot each other even after recent acts that make it seem like we are in a civil war, don't sleep on the people of Oakland, we are gifted and lets come together and paint peace in these streets, and be green, like we been but just with a greater state of consciousness. This is for Oakland and any community around the world labeled as bad or impoverished or ghetto, cause it may have some horribleness but the people are not horrible, the people ---are gonna change the world!
