Silence Ain’t So GOLD In These Times…

Shit if you ain’t making no noise right now you living in the wrong times and you are sadly apart of the problem.

If we sit still in times of need then we are apart of the problem.

Though I don’t go to protest, rallies, or do sit-ins I respect those that do. I do find them counterproductive sometimes.

I kind on want to touch on why I don’t…just to clear the air.

In my opinion meeting up to go a protest that the cops already know we will be at (because we are in the 21st century and can’t seem to keep our movement off social media) is….. NOT A SMART MOVE ya’ll!

So the cops now know to show up with weapons of lethal force “just in case” shit gets wild…in which shit gets wild 9 times out of 10 because there was some short of disturbance on the police end. I’m just saying…I’ve been to these type of movements and shit just a big danger zone for black bodies so I decided long ago to support them from a distance.

Also, what the hell has rallying done for our black asses lately? Not a damn thing other than get us thrown in jail quicker? Get us shot by the KKK? and get us killed by a muthafuckan “police bomb” – (whatever that is.)

Our own damn president can’t say he supports BLACK LIVES before he is cut off air. SO what makes us think they care about our black feelings?

Whyrally and give them peace…they are not a peaceful force so I’m straight on putting myself in the position to get fucked up.

BUT I understand that movements like this are necessary for MOST of our people so cool.

But if we to scared to take a day off work because we feel the pain of losing our people to excessive police brutality then we not even freeing ourselves. We attached. You and me both.

They don’t care about our culture and preserving us (only we can do that.)

Because these laws are not for us to like or for us to feel protected by. AGAIN, our black feelings are not apart of the law book and our black feelings are not thought of when they talk about change in this country.

Why are we giving them this much power over our bodies and spirit? I am over trying to change this fucked up system that was designed by thievesand murders….the same ones of today. Fuck their feelings actually. Fuck their laws. Fuck the ego that drives their sick actions.

To all black bodies around the universe….stay smart and safe. If you choose to protest make it as productive as possible and really allow people to walk away with options and in hopeful cases….a little more freedom.

I am trying to do my part as much as I can, I know you are too!
TURN YOUR VOICE INTO GOLD!

 

A Black Yoga Teacher In A Time Like This…

elevationHere I am about two hours away from teaching and I feel uneasy.

I am in deep thought about what I’m going to say to a class that is 90% white people.

Will everyone look at me and know the pain I’m actually feeling along with so many others?

What is a class suppose to feel like after these fucked up situations happen?How am I going to teach about love and kindness when it feels like a lump in my throat is rising each moment I breathe.

I’ve thought of themes, I’ve thought of making a all black playlist, I’ve thought about getting it covered…shit I even thought about asking people to form a circle of love.

I sat here…wondering….shifting in thought…..

I found one answer…

I’m going to do nothing butbemy simple and free self in this hour of peaceful time.

I am going to allow myself to be open and protected. I do know that when we can practice a moment of peace…take it.
