Marvin Gaye “What’s Going On – What’s Happening Brother”

29 Nov

This song means more to me today than it ever has in my entire life. I haven’t had a lot to say lately and I have even less to say currently. The time for words has come to an end and they weren’t listening anyway.

    You got that right HLJ! They never have listened and they never will listen. We are whistling in the wind. How else can it be explained that the same mess that’s going down today has been going down for centuries?

      These last few days have been extremely hard for me. I really in danger for the first time in my life. They are gunning us down in the streets and people are justifying it. This to me is open season and I am fucking mad as shit.

    Dear Brother Blacka, I hear you and feel what you feel. Tired and Sick and TIred describes my feelings at this time. Thank you so sincerely for sending me this video. It is reminiscent of a time when I was coming of age and never would have realized how far we have come and yet much has stayed the same. The so called Integration experiment and black people strategically showcased to fool the masses of us into thinking our mortal enemy has changed has hopefully been REVEALED as a devious plot Too many are still gunned down despite the so called mule black president and the billionaress Oprah and the now dethroned Puddin’ Pop Cosby. There are none so blind as those that refuse to see. For those who cannot see the Picture Clearly get to your ophthalmologist for an exam today!

      Yes sis, I’ve been in mourning for days and no funeral for closure and no closure because it’s coming again soon. I honestly feel like family members are being taken from and stranger see my hurt and stomp salt and vinegar in my open wounds. But I damned straight to hell before they break me or see a single tear.

      Tired of this was last year – what I am is murderous.
