First Day of Summer School

Today is the first day of summer school. I am taking Social Policy Two and Human Behavior Two. I recieved an A in part one of bothclasses and I am going to try to get an A in both parts now. I have to give myself challenges when it is school time because I get bored very easily and lose interest and focus. I am going to try and maintain a 4.0 in my Masters level classes because I want to prove a point to myself. This Masters in Social Work Degree is part of my five year plan and I want to show that I am totally focused and ready to take control of my destiny.

The Day After

I'm posting from my BlackBerry so this will be short but sweet. Yesterday I went to the African festival at Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM). It was a beautiful event. This is my third year going and I love to see Black People of every shade and color imaginable in a peaceful environment.It was beautiful and each year it gets better and makes me wonder why we haven't achieved more as a people. There are millions of reasons and excuses for why we don't have more. I don't see why there should any. That's my personal opinion.

Welcome to another edition of the Basketball Diaries. Today’s chronicle involves self control. When you play basketball it is a mental sport as well as a physical one. You have to be mentally strong as well as physically in order to do your thing on the court. Many of the more physically gifted athletes have crumbled because they don’t have the mental make up to withstand the pressure. Some of the best basketball players were mentally tougher than anyone else so they are the ones who many people remember for finishing plays with players hanging on them and some many obstacles and challenges in their way. I can remember playing basketball in hostile gyms and having a ball because the crowd was nasty and booing me. I enjoyed dominating the home team and taunting the crowd. I was a notorious trash talker when I played I didn’t care what the score was I talked the entire game, shit I got a technical foul for talking trash at Gallaudet College and it was a school for the hearing impaired. Even though I talked trash I was always in control and I would never allow the opposing player and / or crowd to get under my skin. I would call it crowd interaction and it would drive my teammates and coaches mad because they didn’t think I was focusing on the game when I was. I used the crowd as motivation and mental stimulation it made me play better. I was mentally tough enough to not allow the crowd to control my actions because I used it to my benefit.
Life is similar to a basketball game because of the outside variables that can dictate and change the direction that a game is going. It is up to you as a player to not allow these obstacles to take you out of your character. For a long time in my life I was more in control when I was on the basketball court than in my everyday life. Even when I would play games for money I never worried or became stressed. I can remember playing in tournaments in dangerous neighborhoods shooting free throws and people screaming all types of obscenities and threats but I was never bothered by it. Now in my everyday life I was a lot more impulsive and I can’t tolerate too much dialogue. I wasn’t much for the back and forth with anyone. It was either we were going to get it on or you were going to be shut up physically. It took me over thirty years to control my temper but I have it under control now. So when I lose my composure I am very upset at myself because I allow variables to dictate to me what I am going to do. You see it all the time when you see a player at the free throw line preparing to shoot his free throw either he is focused or looking very nervous. He has allowed outside forces; either the gravity of the situation or pressure to take away his focus. Most of the time the player misses the free throw and the opposing team comes down and hits the game winning or game tying shot further destroying that player’s confidence. Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, Larry Bird, Kobe Bryant, and Isiah Thomas all had this supreme confidence and were unshaken in crunch time. They demanded the ball and wanted to take the last shot which they usually made.
As I sit here writing this piece the person I think about the person who has inspired this. A man who I have grown in my respect and admiration for in the last several months, Barack Obama because he has shown that unwavering confidence that I am talking about. Through all the attacks by the media, debates, opposing candidates, and side line hecklers he hasn’t wavered or broke from his confident stride. He has maintained his dignity and composure in spite of the cowardly actions of many. Barack Obama has taken the best shots that those who are afraid of change have thrown at him and he has remained standing. When they realized that attacking him personally wouldn’t work they started to attack his wife and he was undeterred by their actions. Even former President Bill Clinton when he felt that his wife was being unjustly attacked in the media came to her aid. Which was a noble act but is something that a Presidential Candidate can’t allow to happen because it shows a sign of weakness no matter how minute it may seem. So as the last few months bring about the close to a historic Presidential run it seems to me that we should place our hopes and beliefs behind a candidate that has his eyes on the prize and the wherewithal to get there undeterred. Shit Barack has taught me something these last few month’s I need to step up my focus and get my mind right.

Reverend Wright Told the Truth

Everybody has been upset at Rev. Wright for speaking up about America and its relationship to Blacks, experimentation, and medicine. Damn how you going to be upset at a man for speaking the truth with facts backed up by years of evidence and irrefutable proof. When Rev. Wright said that America has experimented on Blacks he was right. There is the Tuskegee Experiment that everybody knows about; there is the infiltration of drugs in the black community; the MK NAOMI experiment, and the creation of the AIDS virus. AIDS was created by the US Government in 1969; this is not to long after the Civil Rights era and J. Edgar Hoover’s COINTELPRO. So the mind state of White America was not in the best interest of Black People and pretty much was still racist. AIDS was created in a lab in 1969 which was made possible via House Bill 15090 that made funds available to the Department of Defense for Research, Development, Test, and Evaluation. The Department of Defense received over 10 million dollars to research, develop and test the AIDS virus. The United States Army Department the Advanced Research Project Agency (now DARPA), and Defense Research and Engineering created the virus at Fort Dietrich in Maryland, a biological warfare laboratory with the funds allocated by H.R. 15090. It is within this laboratory that the combine efforts US National Cancer institute and the World Health Organization (WHO) created the single most destructive weapon ever used the AIDS virus. Dr. Theodore Strecker states that they combined two deadly retroviruses, the Bovine Leukemia Virus and the Visna Virus, and injected them into human tissue cultures which in turned created the AIDS virus. The Government then under the guise of mass vaccination’s for Smallpox spread the disease across the world. First the World Health Organization (WHO) injected AIDS - laced smallpox vaccine (Vaccina) into Africans in 1977, and then the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and the New York Blood Center injected over 2000 young white male homosexuals with laced Hepatitis B vaccine in 1978. This was a carefully illustrated plan which attacked two areas of interest it was a biological weapon used against people of color and aided in the Eugenics Movement and with population control. So when Rev. Wright speaks about the United States Government creating AIDS he knows what he is talking about.

The other day I had to take a copy of my immunization records to Hunter College so that I could register for school. I have had all of my shots and I was comfortable when I gave them my paperwork. The lady had a difficult time inputting my paperwork and after she finished she said that I had to get one more shot due to me receiving my first shot before my first birthday. I almost lost my damn mind. I was born in this country and have attended school here all of my life. I even attended college in the CUNY system and they require that you have all your shots to register for school. I guess the lady was used to people becoming upset and irate because of the immunization shot. I decided to be polite and respectful to the lady and I guess she was surprised. SO I had to go to the Dr. and get a blood test to show that I was immune. It was either that or get another shot of MMR. Hell no I wasn't going to let them stick any disease into me knowing what I know about the government, medicine, and blacks.
