April 29th, More Power To The People.. And We Might Just See A Sequel

20 years ago today, 4 Police Officers were acquitted of all wrongdoing in a Los Angeles Courtroom (Justice System Remains The Same), for nearly beating Rodney King to Death.. Prompting an outraged community to create the loudest Uproar of our Modern Nation, to be televised Live from the corner of Florence and Normandie in South Central Los Angeles.

What was seen later was an event that shaped the lives of many people in the Los Angeles Area, no matter what your Race or Age, You Felt the World Change that day.  You woke  to smoke filled skies as Pillars of Fire raged.  You saw images of Rifles drawn, National Guard called into the streets you call home.  And in those days, you may have finally realized that we are not in a world of peace.  We are in a World at War.  Because if events such as these were the first you had ever seen of it, you fail to recognize that our World sees these as daily events, and mild in the sense of street massacres experienced every moment, that we never see.

In these days, I realized we lived in a world that was NOT Equal.  These were days that were the most remembered in my life.  Feeling like the world was over, within the borders of what some would like to call “The City Of Angels“.

In A World where Oppression continues, and never ends, there are always moments where the Oppressed rises up over their Oppressors.  It is inevitable in these types of treatment to any man or woman.

I do feel we have seen much change in the last 20 years.  It seemed as if we had moved into a much better place.  But now with events such as the loss of Trayvon Martin, we wonder if our world has continued to not change at all.  And this is now beyond the events of Race Wars… this just speaks of the overall loss of Soul and Humanity from our Society.  We thought we would have learned to change our ways by now, after having already lost our great Minds and Revolutionaries, such as Malcolm X, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr…. and the Greatest Messenger from those living in this realm, Tupac Shakur… who expressed his thoughts on being a Black Man in the Racist American Land on his song “Holla If Ya Hear Me

Oh No I Won’t Turn The Other Cheek

In Case You Didn’t See That’s Why We Burned The Other Week

It was times like Those and Thoughts Like These That Made This World And This Life Unique

At least in my opinion.

And in my opinion, The Hip-Hop Movement that was birthed of such a World,

Is Empowered by what it has experienced, and how it has expressed it.

My thoughts on April 29th, 1992 were written in my song “Our Own Home”

Which spoke of this War Zone In Our Own Home.

Is This same World that has shaped You And Me,

And The Reason I speak As The Prophecy

Courtney Robertson And Ben Flajnik Stay Anti-Social Behind Their Bodyguard… MOBY !!!! posted by on April 29, 2012

If Moby Was A Whack A$$ Bodyguard

SunOfLasVegas.com: The Bachelor peeps, Ben Flajnik and Courtney Robertson, made their Vegas Debut this weekend.  The two hit up Social House for Sushi at Crystals Mall in the MGM City Center, just before hosting a night at Pure in Caesar’s Palace.  The two had also caught some Sun at Wet Republic Pool in the MGM Grand earlier in the day.

Come on now... was that so hard ? You do it for the cameras for a living

But neither of these moments would be nearly as memorable, if not for their Moby Look-Alike VIP Host, some dude.  He looks like Moby’s non-musically inclined half-brother whose talent missed his genetic code.  He’s a little aggressive tho… dude had his hands all over me.  Sorry Fake Moby.  I don’t swing that way homey.  Not that there’s anything wrong with that.  But homey, keep yer hands to yourself bro.

We've got a swinger here... He swings to and fro... both ways

Don’t worry folks.  They only had to be this way since they’re contractually obligated to lend their image only to the backdrops of their venues… but still gives no excuse for man-groping Mr. Moby-NOT

Yeah dude, you’re a douche, but it’s cool  I don’t really care about Bachelor peeps anywayz, but for some reason the public falls for it.

Here’s to you fools
