My Day 1 August 16, 2014
First day in the new place. Hard to believe that I’m finally away from the house. It’s a blessing to see that most of the areas in my life turned around for the better. My greatest hope is that front his point I only improve. Leave all the past behind and from here push forward. Word to new beginnings.
IG family I ask for your support with @_hhsp Helping Sudan Project. My friend Manyang Reath one of the lost boys of Sudan, an escaped refugee who is spreading awareness of the disparities in South Sudan please follow, like and support the cause @_hhsp and on Facebook as we aim to provide self sustainability to the impoverished refugees in Africa.
Special thanks to @1065thebeat and @mikestreetshow and @whoismikejay for letting us spread awareness.

Malcolm X at a meeting in Paris, November 23, 1964
- White interviewer: If it was our white ancestors who bought you and enslaved you, we are their children. We are the new generation. Why don't you call us your brothers?
- Malcolm X: A man has to act like a brother before you can call him a brother. You made a very good point, really, that needs some clarification. If you are the son of the man who had a wealthy estate and you inherit your father's estate, you have to pay off the debts that your father incurred before he died. The only reason that the present generation of white Americans are in the position of economic strength that they are is because their fathers worked our fathers for over 400 years with no pay. For over 400 years we worked for nothing. We were sold from plantation to plantation like you sell a horse, or a cow, or a chicken, or a bushel of wheat. It was your fathers who did it to our fathers, and all of that money that piled up from the sale of my mother and my grandmother and my great-grandmother is what gives the present generation of American whites [the ability] to walk around the earth with their chest out; you know, like they have some kind of economic ingenuity. Your father isn't here to pay his debts. My father isn't here to collect. But I'm here to collect and you're here to pay.
