Linkage: Good for You & Good for Me

Check out the magazine of compassion [Life After Hate] headed by Arno Michaels -- activist and anti-racist who preaches the Good Word of love over hate.

And why should you do this? Because Yours Truly is today's featured author! With my post [Ain't Nothing But A Thang], LAH continues to draw from all corners in the fight against hatred. More importantly, they've got genuine talent (such as myself) bolstering the charge. So sneak a peek and support Life After Hate!


An Argument Against The Eucharist

I recently got back from a graduation service of Mass at my girlfriend's Catholic university. Being a proud, Jew-ish guy I was mildly uncomfortable with all the references to John 14:6, the pro-life/anti-choice rhetoric, and mildly condescending descriptions of poor people, who the Bishop called, at one point, "the least of God's children." (Really? Damn, that's cold.)

[But mostly I was uncomfortable with John 14:6.]

Don't get me wrong though: I believe everyone has a right to their religion, as long as it doesn't infringe upon the rights or freedoms of anyone else, or break any laws, but... iunno. Something just didn't sit well with me about the whole shebang.

Ain't Nothin' But A Thang:

Deconstructing Black Crime Stats For Racists

I've recently been indisposed among the blogosphere due to [The Great Blogger Blackout of 2011], and also because I've been completing my final examinations for this semester. However, I have just finished the final final, turned in the last essay, and now I'm ready to hop back into that proverbial saddle and get back to what I do best.

Debunking [racist pseudo-intellectual garbage]! Well, that, and [funny cat pictures].

Today's post will focus on the topic of Black crime: the statistical distortion and misrepresentation, as well as actually delving into the niceties of this issue which is a particularly sensitive one among the Black community for its pervasive links to structural racism.

Dare I ask, will ya'll join me on this adventure into the murky underworld of race, crime, and prejudice? If you're still reading then I'll assume the answer is a breathtaking yes.

Fast Food Connoisseur

From the looks of me it's apparent that [I'm a small dude] yet I can eat for two -- two regular-sized dudes. Used to compete in food-eating contests, with the distinguished position of being the fastest pie-eater in my senior class from high school. Back home I would binge regularly at many a revolving sushi bar, stacking plates to the rafters for free meals in their contests.

I like to keep an open-mind in addition to an open-palette, y'know. My food of choice varies, but when it comes to instant gratification of hunger nothing satisfies me like fast food.

Shameless Self-Promotion

I was browsing through [my YouTube channel] when I came across this old video of me playing a song I wrote entitled Journey to the East that I performed during the open-mic I host in San Francisco's Lower Haight. (2nd most popular based on number of attendance according to the SF Guardian!)

Anyhoo, I thought ya'll might enjoy it.

Can I Kick It? Yes, You Can!

Old school Hip Hop is my life's blood, coursing musical, lyrical madness down the recesses between ears and stomach. I ingest flow like a battle mech taking down foo fighters until my magazine clicks empty and I hit refresh. Enjoy this nostalgic moment, brought to you by Saboteur Academia.

Obama Got Osama

[Osama bin Laden is dead.]

The news has been making the rounds lately, so I'm sure ya'll have already heard. One of the greatest international terrorists, wanted for almost 20 years by various governments, and nations, who masterminded one of the most horrific acts of terrorism against our country in decades, who precipitated two wars, countless spikes in oil prices, and a restructure of airline security measures has been killed in a three-story million-dollar mansion at Abbottabad, Pakistan by a team of U.S. Navy SEALs working with the CIA. His body was verified via DNA compared between samples taken from it, and matched with his deceased sister's DNA. The body was then taken into custody and given a burial at sea according to Islamic laws. [Source]

[In the words of Dave Chappelle], all I can say is... GOTCHA BITCH!
