 ‘A.PINKS- ‘GOOGLE ME’ BLOG”‘BLACK PEOPLE….BACK 2 DA BASICS’

WELCOME ALL,

ALLOW ME TO REINTRODUCE MYSELF, MY NAME IS….PINKS. I AM STRAIGHT OUT OF RAVENSWOOD, QUEENS AND I PRIDE MYSELF IN BEING THE MOST CANDID RAPPER IN THE GAME. I RHYME LIKE THE RED LIGHT IS BLINKING YA DIG. HOPEFULLY, YOU HAVE SEEN MY NEW VIDEO ‘IF MY HOOD COULD TALK’ FEATURED ON VARIOUS PROMINENT WEBSITES VIA VIRAL MEDIA. BE SURE TO CHECK MYSPACE.COM/APINKSMUSIC FOR MORE MATERIAL…
       
ANYWHOO TODAY, THIS TUESDAY MORNING AT 2:09 AM I’M IN THE MOOD TO BLOG ON A TOPIC A TAD DIFFERENT THAN YOUR ORDINARY RAP BEEFS AND CELEBRITY COUPLES. “YOU MEAN, THERE ARE OTHER ISSUES AT HAND OTHER THAN “BAAALLIN!”…AHH YES. ON MY ‘I CAN DO THAT’ TANGENT, I’M GOING TO DISCUSS THE STATE OF AFRICAN AMERICAN PROGRESSION….YEAH! I WENT TO COLLEGE BITCH! HOWARD UNIVERSITY IN FACT, I’LL TELL YALL A LITTLE MORE ABOUT THAT SOAP OPERA SOME OTHER TIME.ON TO THE SHOW….

FIRST OFF, I LOVE BLACK PEOPLE, BUT CLEARLY, WE ARE IN TROUBLE. BACK IN ‘MY’ DAY, (I’M FRONTIN’ LIKE I’M OLD, BUT SERIOUSLY) WE WERE A PROUD PEOPLE; A PEOPLE THAT STRIVED FOR GREATNESS AND ACCOMPLISHMENT. WE ACTUALLY GAVE A FUCK ABOUT OUR CONDITION. WE TOOK PRIDE IN WHO WE ARE. WE WERE DOWN TO FIGHT AND DIE FOR WHAT WE BELIEVED IN. FORWARD TO 2007: NOBODY GIVES A FUCK!

WE ARE EITHER STRIVING FOR NOTHING OR LOOKING OUT FOR NUMBER ONE. PEOPLE TALK A GOOD GAME, BUT WHEN IT COMES DOWN TO IT, THEY AREN’T REALLY CONCERNED ABOUT WHAT’S GOING ON. WE ARE A RACE THAT IS PLAGUED WITH DRUG ABUSE, SICKNESS AND IGNORANCE. WHAT’S GOOD WITH THAT? I’LL TELL YOU, WE HAVE NO IDEA WHERE THE HELL WE CAME FROM. WE ARE TAUGHT THAT WE WERE NOTHING BUT SLAVES AND CREAM PUFFS.

FOR EXAMPLE, REVEREND DOCTOR MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR. IS ONE OF OUR LEADERS MADE OUT TO BE A SOFTEE. HE IS MADE OUT TO BE A GUY THAT MERELY HAD A DREAM THAT ONE DAY WE WOULD BE ABLE TO FROLIC THROUGH A FIELD OF DAISIES WITH WHITE PEOPLE. NOBODY SEEMS TO REALIZE THAT HE WAS OUT THERE FIGHTING DAY BY DAY TO IMPROVE THE QUALITY OF LIFE FOR HIS PEOPLE. HE WAS OUT CHANGING THE FREAKIN’ CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES. HE WAS RECEIVING DEATH THREATS ON THE REGULAR AND WAS LOCKED UPON A COUPLE OF OCCASIONS.  NO DREAMER OVER HERE. ANOTHER THING IS, DR. KING IS MADE OUT TO BE THE ONLY ONE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE CIVIL RIGHTS MOVEMENT. HE WAS INSTRUMENTAL IN THE MOVEMENT, BUT HE WAS A SPOKESPERSON. THERE WERE MANY OTHERS THAT WERE OUT THERE FIGHTING DAILY FOR US (WE DON’T EVEN KNOW ALL THE NAMES THAT WERE INVOLVED). DON’T YOU FIND IT WEIRD THAT OUT OF A WHOLE MOVEMENT THAT SPANNED MANY, MANY YEARS IS REDUCED TO DR. KING AND ROSA PARKS. GO OUT AND READ ABOUT MALCOLM X (HE WAS MORE THAN THE MOVIE), MARCUS GARVEY, WEB DUBOIS, MEDGAR EVARS, HUEY P. NEWTON (AND THE BLACK PANTHER PARTY),ETC. IT’S TERRIBLE, BUT ONE OF THE REASONS THAT WE HAVE NO RESPECT FOR OURSELVES IS THAT WE HAVE NO IDEA WHERE WE CAME FROM. WE COME FROM KINGS, QUEENS, PHILOSOPHERS, SCIENTISTS, POLITICIANS, ACTIVISTS, RELIGIOUS LEADERS, VISIONARIES, MEDICAL DOCTORS, LAWYERS, JUDGES, INVENTORS AND SO ON AND SO FORTH. GO OUT AND LEARN YOUR PEOPLE AND SEE THAT WE ARE MORE THAN GANG BANGERS, DRUG DEALERS, PIMPS, THIEVES AND ENTERTAINERS (ALTHOUGH SOME OF THEM STOOD FOR SOMETHING AS WELL). WE ARE A PEOPLE OF ACCOMPLISHMENT AND HAVE MADE MAJOR CONTRIBUTIONS TO MANY ASPECTS OF SOCIETIES. WE ARE GREAT AND THE SOONER THAT WE ARE ABLE TO REALIZE THAT, THE GREATER WE WILL BE.

AIIGHT, I’M DONE FOR NOW. YALL LUCKY I’M EXHAUSTED. GO BACK TO YOUR AMERICAN IDOL, PLAYOFF GAMES, AND BUSTIN’ YOUR GUNS…

-GOOGLE ME!
