Lauryn Hill — Black Rage
People aren’t talkin about the news, they’re talking about what they think the news is. There is no news channel saying “This is what happened, draw your own conclusions.” We have made this country so bereft of critical thinking, that now we have a problem where we have to teach them to think for themselves.
We have no unified authority, or problem solvers. We have congressman discussing environmentalism, when they don’t understand half the problems our earth is going through. We go to congress instead of going to people who have worked their whole LIFE trying to solve these problems. When it comes to racism, we’re asking a panel of white dudes, when it comes to sexism and woman’s rights we ask a panel of white priests on what they think. IT’S INSANITY! We ask people who are not in the arena they should be speaking in/for.
AND THAT’S WHY WE DON’T trust the media, it’s because they’re not in the arena of black experience, and they don’t care about the black experience, UNTIL something bad happens and they have the tools to paint us as destructive, ugly and evil!

This is honestly the most heart breaking thing I’ve seen in a long time
To say thank you for all of the love and support I have listed a buy one, get one sale on
Everyone who buys an autographed copy of “Love in my Language” will get my first book, “Words from a Wanderer” as a free gift. Since I can’t control sales and stuff on Amazon and Createspace, I wanted to do something special for everyone who has supported my dreams over the years.
There are a limited amount of books listed. First come, first served. ❤️
