You Think I’m Gonna Stop Watching The NFL?

What good does that do or how does it affect the main issue of police brutality?
 
And they sacrificed so we could "move on" and live out our lives not to dwell in the past
 
you aint answer the question of how does Kap gettin' a job in the NFL help anything
 
and yes there will be hate and dominance maybe forever. violence also as its been throughout human history. being paranoid and reactive to what might happen is another thing that is based on speculation using past analogies
 
yes there are Nazi's and KKK members and there always will be. but to think this is the sentiment of most white people and that "they all" think that way and there is a "conspiracy" to dominate and subdue based on race? based on money and power maybe. you catch a few KKK and Nazi's on TV that media feeds you and you feel we are under attack. i don't. of all the places i go and things i do i don't see it so i wont let TV or social media scare me into believing i'm under threat
 
i say do you and don't worry about what might happen until it actually does. many will say that's when its too late, look at history and they have the right to that opinion and the right to live their lives believing that. that's not the way i choose to live. its not the way i was raised and its not in my mindset to speculate doom on such proportions. life ain't fair and never will be and i accept and live with that. and i deal with it the best i can and i absolutely love where i and the overwhelming majority of family and people around me are
 
did you answer the question about how Kap getting his job back helps anything? (i may have missed it)
 
sooooooo this boycott the NFL is for nothing but pride? not to win football games? or even sell jerseys? anytime ANYBODY stands up they get smacked down. that's the point of standing up and making a wave. to play the race card is pointless to rely on the race card is fruitless all this to do to get Kap his job back and it will do nothing for the cause and for nobody other than Kap. money and donations ain't whats needed . its much deeper than relying on any one man to be a savoir or leader. its generational and it starts in the family and is passed down.
 
i'm making sure me and and my family and my kids understand that the world or whitey ain't out to get them. from there they make a choice how to handle. i live my life as an example to white people and black people around me that a black man can be happy and get along maintaining his integrity with a smile on his face and be respected. i hope to be an example that a black man or ANY man can work withing the system without fear or concern about what happened in the past. i'm tying to show that every black man doesn't feel oppressed, hasn't had a negative run in with police, is able to work with this capitalistic system no matter how corrupt and succeed. and be happy. i also believe the majority of black folks are doing just fine and are happy working within the system but are "afraid" to speak up for fear of being labeled uncle tom or coon. say one good thing about whitey and they will come after you.
 
that "hate" may be just in your mind,. as i've said i haven't experienced it. in fact a lot of white people like black people more than i do. and regardless, their "hate" is their problem, not mine. getting mine no matter on what playing field is my problem. and i've equipped myself with the skills and mentality to get down on that field
 
in my experience black people hate white people more!!!! i could not give a damn if someone don't like me
 
exactly my point- you call being a good person "being a good negro"
 
obviously the Lord aint on black people's side...

Making Music My Way

the cool thing about working solo projects is that i can share incomplete ideas while in progress at my will. it not only doesn't have to be perfect , it doesn't have to be finished. i completely understand how people who do this for a living don't want junk with their name on it published. and i respect that, so i don't.

but for me its about growth and learning and to be honest i may love the process more than the final product or goal. so many tools, so much power in the technology and a platform to publish. the thing being i can create stuff like this (or "better") at will all day long. and its easy and enjoyable.

the early process is basically throwing whatever up in the air but then i will hear something and work from there. that's where the work comes in getting it tighter and tighter to what i like. then from there every now and then being able to push and create something at the next level in my journey to wherever it is i'm so determinedly going in my head there is a sound and when it ain't "right" i hear it immediately. it feels like its instinctive to the point i rely on my production ear and making it sound "right."

the way i see it, i will keep getting better at making it sound right to me and maybe, just maybe it will resonate with others. at this point and i hope always i don't care what other people think about it. its not that feedback doesn't affect me or that i like it or don't, i don't care about it. i learn from it and use it but know the ups and downs, positives and negatives are part of the journey, which is part of the game which is a major part of the fun song structure to some degree maybe. but i have no format, no guideline, no requirement or standard to meet.

Happy Being

you know, i've realized that i won't be "happy" or better yet "blissfully carefree" continuously throughout my life. it wasn't so long ago that i had my struggles and stresses. though comparatively speaking most of it was a cakewalk in comparison to what i see out there. i had to learn how to be all the way happy when riding that happy wave. all waves ebb, but ride that wave like a donkey into the ground until it does. being aware but not cautious. being smart but not worrying. and just go for it. no looking over my shoulder. nobody is out to get me. fun and happy without fear of it going away or being taken away because there will come a time when it will go away. it cant go on like this forever. and when it does i will be ready and prepared to handle it. i've said the idea of heaven can't work because we need those ups and downs. times when we gotta put in hard work physical, mental and emotional that hurts. we all have our faiths and what we believe will get us thru. whatever "thru" is, that's up to the individual.

i guess my point is swing on it like a monkey when you get a chance. dont be embarrassed because you happy. to be happy takes a certain amount of apathy. there is ALWAYS something you can worry about or protest against or try to stand for. i use to get all riled up over stuff. and i acted on it. once i felt i made an impact and that i was heard i moved on. i slowly lost interest. and then sometime late last year i lost the urge to even debate or even discuss political, religious or social issues. i simply lost interest. every now and then i take a poke at something, but my heart isn't in it. its trivial to me. been there done that. you do your thing and i will do mine. what is there to discuss? i'm cool.

sure it may sound like me! me! me!! yeah, so what? do i care about the future of the earth? do i care about the future of mankind? sure i do. do i know what mankind should do to be successful and or preserve the earth? probably not. i guess that's why i think we will all be ok. there is no doomsday coming. we are all not going to hell. the world isn't falling apart. so you know what? i'm gonna have some fun...

Being Truly Happy

thinking about it, it took more than a little bit for me to reach a point where i could be freely happy. i mean drop my guard- nothing bad is going to happen- you got shit covered- stop looking over my 13692581_10153783054831864_6957224712885199074_nshoulder- relaxed carefree happy. hell it took decades. considering what i went thru and the resources it took to get me there it hits me why so few people can actually achieve this. for me it took more than a few separations from long standing traditional thinkings, a direct facing of fears that he into an inherent self confidence so high people could see it in my walk...

Me And The Life That Is Mine

just took one of those challenging calls that makes you do your job better. user was cool but getting frustrated and i had to figure it out. i knew the fix but had to verify with co-workers. basically an uninstall and reinstall all apps. but the process that got me to that taught me a lot about the process of installing this very critical program on a users phone. there was enough pressure in the tone and 15241997_10154871345457125_1896567652453250528_nenergy of the user to get me a little anxious and nervousy and going thru that i feel is critical to doing what i do well. the relief and confidence boost when things got to working right was definitely pound my chest get off me i'm jeffery good. the next time i get this kind of call it will be a piece of cake. experience soon as s the call was over i broke outside and hit the vapepen standing under the skyscrapers feeling how good it is to feel i belong playing on a big city field in the game with some of the best at what they do people from around the world. challenge reminds me of just how good i am and just how much has went into me being the me i am now.
