    ✌🏾It’s time for a break. A real one. And if you need one as well, to find rest or mental peace consider this. No one should ever  have to consume so much. We aren’t built to consume so many voices and opinions of a thousand different perspectives. I have never felt so emotionally disturbed on a consistent basis. Spiritually, my bible seems like white words on white pages. Correctly said, I do not see nor feel anything as I’ve try to read or even pray. I haven’t had a genuine smile or laugh since I can remember. Like I have said before, there is absolutely no where to go where I’m not threatened by a worldwide deadly virus or threatened by racist terroristic acts in this country.  I’m reminded once I pick up the phone, I’m reminded the moment I turn on the television. And if that wasn’t enough I’m reminded while going grocery shopping having random white people come up to me while shopping with my mother n law saying “what do you feel should be done?” Is there a book I should read?”....this world is on fire right now and im getting burned out and spiritually torched just from being here. While I’m appreciative of so much support from those willing to understand, I just need space from everything and everybody. So I’m out. I’m out until necessary.  I need to breathe. I need rest. I need joy. I need life. Yes, so many have it much worse, but our story is still ours. I’ll see everyone again once I find that joy again. But I gotta go. Music will return when it’s time.✊🏾🖤

    Hey guys! I’ve felt that real conversations during this time is ever so necessary in order that we can begin discussing the heart of the matter when it comes to systemic racism and how it affects each and every one of us. Join me via #Zoom tomorrow at 5pm CST! I’m bringing some friends with me! Tell a friend!

    This doesn’t change the power of Yah, but If art is art and faith is faith, why did we and still do have segregated churches? Some will say his color never mattered. But then answer the question that if it didn’t, why did they change early depictions of a black Jesus to a white Jesus and then in the same vein oppress black slaves with a white Jesus? God on the throne appeared to be a man of color. .
.
Revelation 4:1-3 .
1 After this I looked, and behold, a door standing open in heaven! And the first voice, which I had heard speaking to me like a trumpet, said, "Come up here, and I will show you what must take place after this."
2 At once I was in the Spirit, and behold, a throne stood in heaven, with one seated on the throne.
3 And he who sat there had the appearance of jasper and carnelian, and around the throne was a rainbow that had the appearance of an emerald. - Revelation 4:1-3
.
.
He looked like Sardius and Jasper. I.e he was brown. He appears on the throne as a shining man of color. Historically, no white man was going to worship the same man that looked exactly like the men they put in chains. To change the image of the savior to a people in order that you oppress not just them but also their faith is the HIGHEST form of oppression man can think of. It’s disgusting that it wasn’t enough to put us in chains, they manipulated our outlook on who our savior really was. So I say to all of the people that say they DONT SEE COLOR. JESUS DID NOT IGNORE HIS OWN COLOR. NEITHER DID JOHN WHO WROTE REVELATION. GOD SHOWED HIM COLOR. HE DIDNT HAVE GRAY SCALED BLACK AND WHITE REVELATIONS. THEY WERE FULL OF COLOR AND THE MAN ON THAT THRONE WAS A MAN OF COLOR. So to all of you with this man sitting up in your churches. Do your history. You’re worshiping the image of fallen man. Cesar Borgia. I’ve got receipts y’all. .
.
And to address the notion that there are different depictions of Jesus in other cultures - the difference is the other cultures didn’t do this to enslave black people. 🤷🏾‍♂️ Back then, white supremacists used scripture  to manipulate people of color in order to  justify slavery. They’ve even used the CURSE OF HAM, NOAHS SON TO JUSTIFY IT.

I don’t claim to have all the answers but what I feel is a good place to start in resolving any conflict is to address and validate the issue causing the problem.  In this case, America needs to address and validate its historical oppression, the pain and the problems it has caused for people of color in this country since its establishment.  For Black people, the oppression and dehumanizing started with slavery.  For those indigenous to this land, it was stealing their property and destroying their civilizations. #blm #blacklivesmatter .

    I want people of all ethnic backgrounds to see how this evilness destroys communities by adding fear and hurt into the hearts of people of color as it did before in the time of slavery.  This is not a new evil but one that has grown out of men’s hearts into the systems and structures they have put in place.  That some neighborhoods are set up to keep people of color out in fear that they will destroy or disturb communities.  Meanwhile, in Black and Brown neighborhoods, there is over-policing to keep people of color controlled regardless of the conditions of our redlined, school impoverished, disenfranchised communities. - Canon⁣

"I pray that this song shows that racism is evil. What we are seeing today is the fruit of that evil that has been allowed to grow in our society through the many injustices that people of color have faced, both public and private. Even if you were previously unaware of your racial biases and discriminatory tendencies, it is still evil. I hope that this song will demonstrate that what some policemen have been able to get away with in the past and present is evil. To my people, I hear you, I feel you, and I’m here with you.  I encourage those who do not understand the angst of Black people right now, and even those who think they understand, to build real relationships with people of color.“ - Canon⁣

Stay tuned for a panel discussion about this. The date will be announced later this week.

    Take a second. Breathe.

I am drained to the utmost degree. I’ve never felt so angry, so exhausted. Our willingness to explain our racial differences and experiences has left me feeling disappointed, hopeless and depleted. We are living in the 21st Century and though many do not understand the everyday reality of the black experience, some of us are willing to take the time to educate. But do not be mistaken. “You end up leaving enlightened, we leave exhausted.” - @jawn_o .
.
Some are still assuming that the “media” has blinded us when we have personal experiences in this racial narrative. I don’t have the strength to pray today honestly. I have 0 scriptures to offer you. I don’t have the strength to entertain a single conversation that will only lead to more explaining or doubt that you will ever truly understand. Even with an entire country set aflame because of racial inequality, some will still choose to believe what they want and choose to see what they desire. They’d rather I shut up and just rap than be a breathing, educated human being - or simply put, a Black man. To them, the bridge to my utmost patience has been burned to the ground, but not so much the individuals fighting with us. .
.
So to my white brothers and sisters that are trying to understand and are willing to fight alongside to make systemic change, thank you. I see you. I hear you. My recent and future posts aren’t towards you. We fight better in numbers as allies. But In the words of @richperez, you can’t spell “Allies” without Ls. You can’t  be allies without holding the Ls that come with it. You may not be use to taking substantial losses for the sake of equal rights for Black people but it is all apart of this fight. I’ve happily lost 1000s of followers already but gained back some amazing ones that are willing to listen and learn from an experience that is not of their own. To you, thank you.

    The next thing they’ll say is that we fell on bullets and strangled ourselves. Wake up y’all. Many still believe it’s a drastic measure for US to get organized and protect ourselves. #robertfuller #malcomharsh
