woke up, at the crack of noon,
toke up, so i'm'a crackin' soon,
joke up, so i'm'a snappin' goon,
folk up, so i'm'a rappin' tune...

loc'd up, lift-quick, step outside,
brown-pride, so i ride, with pride, on my hide,
same-side, side-walk, walk-talk-on-the-block,
chalk-up emo'souls, sold-out, in shock,
goal'd out, so i walk, told 'bout, so i stalk,
mould doubt, so i block, the cock-blockin'-jock,
eyes-size the prize, lies of silence'n'violence,
'proach me in silence, violence ain't my reliance,
gotta get shook, open-book, no doubt, hold clout,
bring'em out, when in doubt, grill-out, flared-snout,
but i dared-doubt, the code, of street-meetin' heat,
can't be beat, if i never see defeat at my feet,
defeatin' the beaten steppin' like they reppin' too hard,
retards in leotards, 'proach like they always on guard,

got a minit for ya, state ya claim or insane,
got a minit for ya, the game blamin' shame,
got a minit for ya, the fame claim is lame,
got a minit for ya, then i'm runnin' my own game...

I was having a discussion with a couple of black activists a while back, a male and female, and they both said what they hate most was the "fake smiles of white people." Not all white people, but the ones giving them "fake" smiles, generally in passing.

The guy said when he sees that, he gives them the worst "screwface" look he can. The girl said she does this too, and that when she gets a dirty look she gives them a big-ass smile just to piss them off more.

I said they were wrong.

1) Don't let anyone get you shook: never let anyone ruin ya good mood even for a minit, it's a waste of YOUR minit, not theirs - they chose to start shit.

2) Don't let a moment in passing get worse: you don't know what they really feel, so don't take it personally unless you have hard evidence of malice.

3) Don't forget what everyone needs to overcome: fear. Dude's a 6'4" dreadlocked "big-black-guy", and little white people may be flippin' "half-smiles" out of uncertainty and unfamiliarity. Chill 'em out, and maybe the next smile they flip a "big-black-guy" or girl will be naturally wider.

Besides, according to my Dad we're coming up on Kaliyuga, or the Hindu end of 5000 years worth of shit. That's right, all this crap going on right now, mass-starvation, political corruption, disease and the next few years of hell on earth are the culmination of some cosmic jump-off in 3000 B.C., so we're all screwed anyway.

That's right.

We're all screwed anyway.

Characteristics of Kali Yuga

There are many passages in the Hindu writings, which describe the condition of the World during Kali Yuga - an actual era in which suffering plays an important part in spiritual liberation. Amazingly these facts, are exactly what we are seeing in the World today. Among the most striking of these passages from the Hindu holy books are the following:

Swami Vivekananda, a great Indian mystic wrote:

"But greater than the present deep dismal night...no pall of darkness had ever before enveloped this holy land of ours. And compared with the depth of this fall, all previous falls appear like little hoof-marks."


Obviously this seer is refering to our actual era, Kali Yuga.

"Cheating will be the order of the day in business relations; satisfaction of sexual pleasure will be the only consideration of male or female excellence and worthiness."

"When deceit, falsehood, lethargy, sleepiness, violence, despondency, grief, delusion, fear, and poverty prevail, that is the Kali Yuga..."

"Celibates, will cease to observe their vows of study, purity and celibacy; householders will take to begging (instead of giving alms); hermits will resort to villages (leaving their retreats in the forests); and sanyasins will be extremely greedy for money."

"In the Kali Yuga, men will abandon their parents, brothers, friends, and relatives. They will occupy high seats (and pulpits) and will (pretend to) preach religion."
