A note to consciousness:I can’t help but feel constantly bombarded with moving images of Black bodies being murdered and abused as if their lives are realistically of less value than those with lower melanin levels. Being highly exposed to these images, may coerce the mind to believe this fallacy as a truth. There are some who claim nothing is happening. This is a primary example of willful ignorance. Soloman Northup’s experience lasted 12 years, just enough to get the academy award. While the masses continue to suffer from a sickness rooted in experiences of Mr. Northup and countless others. RIP: Eric Garner and the countless others whose stories will go unheard.

A lot of people ask me. “Why’d you decide to live in Ethiopia?”

A lot of people ask me. “Why’d you decide to live in Ethiopia?”

Answer: I came to grasp where I come from (and where we all come from to be frank). I needed to prove to myself that I was more than another statistic and I wasn’t willing to endure the stop and frisk methods of the NYPD. Such is the plight of the mal-melanated New Yorker.
