  1. Time. Wow.. sometimes when I hear that word, it makes me tremble. TIME! For someone who has ever done "TIME" the word is frightening, especially when you must confront it with its boxing gloves on. For most, time is an anonymous fear that has no shape or form. It just is, but when you go to prison, TIME because a living, breathing monster that you have to either tame or die. Prison transform TIME into the proverbial monkey on your back. It is always there like a bad habit you can't shake. In prison. TIME awards you nothing but the challenge to defeat it.When I was a rookie at goin

  2. Nothing is more intimately related to the emotional welfare of the black male than the sum of his fears. From the start, it would be rather amiss of me if I didn’t relate that what I have discovered about fear is that fear can be either a life experience or a life sentence dependent upon the torque and velocity of that particular fear. For example, my fear of fire has prevented me from foolishly thrusting my hand into an open flame, and it is precisely fear of this nature that has proven to be a life-affirming experience. Then you have, on the other hand, those fears that are so mind-numbing

  3. Well I agree with that point. However the rest of it not so much. while it is true most of the world's billionaires live in the United States, the wealth gap here is probably greater than it is anywhere else on Earth. Most of the world's planet lives in relative poverty. Yes the United States is relatively much better off than the rest of the planet. But for a country so wealthy why does anyone here have to live in poverty? The reason is the system is truly rigged against black people we have been disenfranchised for hundreds of years here. So wh

  5. danielkegfny, I have not been on here in a while. Blessings to you and your family and everyone else on here. You directed a comment to me, so, I will respond: The only Republican I ever voted for is the late Jacob Javits, who many would consider a Liberal for his time. Republicans tend to not like or always dismiss Black people and our achievements. Trump has a long standing history of antipathy towards our people. He and his father refused to rent apartments in their buildings to Blacks. He’s likened most Black nations as chithole countries. After George Floyd was murdered,

  6. Time is only relative to space. When I “died” and returned with THE ALL , there was only “now” i.e presence. As soon as my “thoughts” diverged from THE ALL - I found myself back in this dimension and bound by the laws governing this space. There’s probably no “time” here either but since we individuate - it is hard to remain PRESENT because our thoughts are everywhere at once - Also, because of our thoughts we use “time” here to at least have a semblance of “presence.” In fact, we’ve been present in Rome for quite some “time.” I used to believe not

  7. Geez @Pioneer1 so you have a theory about white folks and then you believe everyone acts accordingly? Stawp- just no. There was a troll on this board at the time and @Troy finally got him to flee! Even you said he ran away. I’m not into supremacy bullshyt no matter what ethnic group spews it. While you sometimes border on supremacy talk - you actually, at times, dig deeper - and go down the rabbit hole - and strike gold (even if I don’t agree with your find) That poster - was just your garden-variety troll and I can block/mute them on twitter but you can’t

  8. WOW....I am shocked. No BS. I am surprised and shocked. Not Cynique. I knew something was up when I never saw her on any of the threads. Trust me, I said a few things to draw her out but when she never straightened me out, I became fearful. It's like when i come home from prison, I would be hesitant to ask about certain people since they might may passed on. Anyway, Cynique used to check me a lot when I first came on the site many years ago. She made me be hyper-vigilant about what I said. Given that, the last book I wrote was deliberately written in a super-controlled way because of its natur

Just think how we all, well, Troy and Pioneer1 have personal stories about Stephanie Mills. Well, I do to. She lived in Charlotte for a while and was involved with a local DJ, so she could be seen, and me, being me, was trying to find a way to get at her. Never mind that, but the fact that three of us, in different parts of the country all have info on something or someone, and just like that, through our observations, we were able to ascerta

  11. Living in the moment is the goal. I used to be a bike messenger in Manhattan. Once or twice I would put on Public Enemy and ride through traffic. It was electrifying, to feel the energy of the music, while weaving through traffic and leaving cars behind you. In that moment it was just the me, the bike and the feeling. I only did it a handful of times since I didn't want to lose my hearing or get into an accident. There is something about being totally immersed in an activity to the point that the world disappears.

  13. Brother, you are on point. Dig this, I just read an article where a guy said that the problem is that we let opinions and ideas go unchecked for fear of offending others. It's wrong not to question things because if we simply allow false notions to persist, it can be damaging. The reason a lot of lies exist is because we never challenged them though we knew them to be wrong. Considering the position we are in as a people or as a nation, we cannot reman silent in the face of lies. Keep on providing your light. In the joint, what is true as you mentioned is how your mind should be free. Use

It is possible to train or deprogram your mind. I feel the first step is to either question everything or say you know nothing. I have not been to prison, but I would imagine there are guys in prison, that even though their body is imprisoned their mind is not. It sounds lie prison in an odd way freed your mind. If I am mistaken . I apologise. @Gibran I feel the only people free in society are sociopaths, creative artist and inven

  15. i am, like you ,a believer in conscious living but sadly, we all, for the most part, live in alternate realities. What you consciously experience may not be a reality for me. What happens is frustration because I can fit my conscious perspective into the perspective you have invented for yourself. It like eyewitness accounts. For example, we can witness the same fight and walk away with differing accounts and opinions of who won. Or what about a wreck. We both see the accident but I saw car A as wrong whereas you swear Car B was wrong. No matter what I perceive as real due to what I consciousl

  17. Yeah, we the only ones who don't treat time as an investment to getting better while inside. There was an old saying. DON'T SERVE TIME. MAKE TIME SERVE YOU. but jail is the one place where we exercise POWER. We run shit inside and maybe that is why we flock to our power base. Dig this, throughout my convict life, I have constantly ran ito brothers that I have practically grown up with from juvenile to the big house. See them over and over again. On the state. In the feds but guess what? I hardly even see Asians but once. They don't keep coming back.

Judge Mark Ciavarella Jr photo Mark Ciavarella Jr AFRICANGLOBE – Disgraced Pennsylvania judge Mark Ciavarella Jr has been sentenced to 28 years in prison for conspiring with private prisons to sentence juvenile offenders to maximum sentences for bribes and kickbacks which totaled millions of dollars. He was also ordered to pay $1.2 million in restitution. In the private prison industry the more time an inmate spends in a facility, the more of a profit is reaped from the state.

  19. First, some good news. If there is such a thing as a natural remedy for success, it would certainly be time, but just what is this phenomenon that most of us tolerate with only a mild curiosity? Can it be harnessed? Can it be regulated or reduced? How do we establish a long-term relationship with it? Are there any hard-and-true “rules of the road” when it comes to confronting time in an effort to mastering it? From the very moment of our conception, we are born ready to run away from time, the one thing we can’t escape. No matter what we do or

  20. For the past few years I have been pointing out to people that when you hear the war cry “Tax The Rich “ you better hide your wallet. Back in 2012 this article proved my point https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2082385/We-1--You-need-34k-income-global-elite--half-worlds-richest-live-U-S.html This one of the reasons why I believe that we are living with paradigms that don’t describe our current conditions or positions. It’s because we are just repeating slogans and not really doing and inventory of our assets, we are being smothered by our liabilities.

And another show that we loved as Black boys growing up was DUKES OF HAZZARD. We used to play it as children chasing eachother arouns playing Roscoe and Boss Hog. And ofcourse everyone wanted to drive the "General Lee" car with the Confederate Flag on it and older Black people couldn't figure out why. But many of our people were being programed into White Supremacy through these television shows at a young age. As it turned out, t

  25. Though, at the outset, this may seem totally foolish financially, but it has been done before and with great success, I might add. As they say, drastic times require drastic measures, so consider this. First, some historical background. After the Civil War, a great deal of land was confiscated from the southern rebels as contraband of war. In any event, there was some talk of this land being distributed among the newly freed slaves in those parts of the country. It was a noble thought and would have been an even nobler gesture had it taken place. It didn’t, though. Wha

Just like during Reconstruction when it happened initially a war was raging Well, this is a war as well. It was declared a war by the government; The War on Drugs. Therefore, we meet the first requirement. Secondly, it was acknowledged that these guys were criminals who had taken up arms against the government. Drug-dealers are indeed criminals who have taken a stance contra the government. Via Truth and Reconciliation trials, sanctioned and

I knew few english words, my name being John; but she didn’t mind. I met her eyes and she already knew mine. We fell in love, and I joined her raiding party. We survived tons of gunfire as colonist numbers grew and grew. We even got through a pregnancy in a winter woods in the MicMaq lands now called New England.

We are all better served by learning about other cultures. That is one reason I operate this site, to provide a way for people to learn about different so called "Black" cultures.

As I implied earlier my time can be better spent focusing on AALBC. I could have had my affiliate program setup now were it not for me expending energy countering Bookshop.org AALBC has weathered many challenges I'll weather this one too. I'm not even going to share the video beyond posting it here.
