Traveling is awesome! It allows you to live in the now. Not only does it make you aware of the world around you; but it makes you aware of a life or lifestyle you may have thought or never thought of. Traveling not only broadens your mind but teaches you to take things as is. In some cases you will find your local press may be denying you the opportunity to experience something wonderful due to propaganda. Are you ready to leave your comfort zone?

As we move forward in the struggle for justice for our fallen men, women and children. We pray that the case in Baltimore does not take the turn that was taken in the Michael Brown case. But we must remember that case was against a single WHITE MAN, this case has six assailants and 3 of them are Black and one is a Black Woman. So let's look at what Malcolm has to say in reference to this behavior by Black Police Officers. "Just as the slavemaster of that day used Tom, the house Negro, to keep the field Negroes in check, the same old slavemaster today has Negroes who are nothing but modern Uncle Toms, 20th century Uncle Toms, to keep you and me in check, keep us under control, keep us passive and peaceful and nonviolent. That’s Tom making you nonviolent. It’s like when you go to the dentist, and the man’s going to take your tooth. You’re going to fight him when he starts pulling. So he squirts some stuff in your jaw called novocaine, to make you think they’re not doing anything to you. So you sit there and ’cause you’ve got all of that novocaine in your jaw, you suffer peacefully. Blood running all down your jaw, and you don’t know what’s happening. ’Cause someone has taught you to suffer — peacefully."This is what is happening to us right now today."The white man do the same thing to you in the street, when he want [sic] to put knots on your head and take advantage of you and don’t have to be afraid of your fighting back. To keep you from fighting back, he gets these old religious Uncle Toms to teach you and me, just like novocaine, suffer peacefully. Don’t stop suffering — just suffer peacefully. As Reverend Cleage pointed out, “Let your blood flow In the streets.” This is a shame. And you know he’s a Christian preacher. If it’s a shame to him, you know what it is to me.
