Finding Paix Johannesburg
I’m more interested in the woman I want to be, as opposed to the things I want. By the time I’m her, I’ll already have everything she wants.

Following the Civil War, black Americans, through employment as musicians playing European music in military bands, developed new musical styles such as ragtime and what would become known as jazz. In developing this latter musical form, African Americans contributed knowledge of the sophisticated polyrhythmic structure of the dance and folk music of peoples across western and sub-Saharan Africa. Together, these musical forms had a wide-ranging and profound influence over the development of music within the United States and around the world during the 20th century.

dear White America,

the men in charge of protecting people’s children and making sure the streets are still so people’s mamas can make them a soul filled dinner on their way back from the convenience store or the basketball court or the places where they are making a foundation for the future you are taking away are failing my people.

how dare White America tell social networks that protestors are always pulling a race card that you claim doesn’t exist because White privilege has made you colorblind. reality dictates that when White America wakes up to start their days, the police are not pointing guns at their children because their children don’t wear the stigma of being a thug. our ‘thugs’ are trying to make it outta their 20s with degrees and skill sets so we can make White Privilege levels of money and live in White Privilege suburbs so our families can visit us in our White Privilege neighbourhoods where we’re not getting shot at for stepping outside to get some air on our melanin.

don’t talk to me about an unarmed man provoked the officer so metal was his portion. don’t talk to me about self defence and no recollection of a struggle. don’t show me videos that have nothing to do with the confrontation where you shot through someone’s child and couldn’t confirm how many ran through him.

free. our. people.

So, do it. Decide. Is this the life you want to live? Is this the person you want to love? Is this the best you can be? Can you be stronger? Kinder? More Compassionate? Decide. Breathe in. Breathe out and decide
