Don't Erase our History

The Texas State Board of Education is on the verge of erasing significant amounts of African-American and American history from student textbooks.
Among the many proposed changes are attempts to paint the Confederacy in a positive light, rewrite the civil rights era, downplay the contributions of nonwhite characters in Texas history, and ignore the atrocities committed on our own soil by groups like the Ku Klux Klan.
These revisions are deeply offensive to not only African-Americans and Texans -- but all Americans.
Make it known throughout your state that if Texas textbook standards pass, they won’t be coming into your classrooms.
American history -- the good, the bad and the ugly -- is what makes our country so special. Let's keep it that way.

Poems off the Dome

Here are a few poems I did while sitting in my room.


What can I say?
It's another year in the 21st
Century but something is not right....
There is something that screams New
Beginnings and New Mercies bestowed upon by
God through Jesus Christ. It also brings new ideas
and a new mentality. The arrival of 2010 signifies that
Trials and Tribulations of not only 2009 but the years prior
Are no longer relevant. Thank God for 2010
and Thank Jesus for interceding on oure behalf
to Grant us the opportunity to praise God for bringing
Us into thwe next decade
Still standing
Still strong
Let's Get It!!!!!


LMFAO at you idiot retards
Your lies and deceit bleeding through
Your hardened Hearts. What's done in
Darkness surely has come to light so cut the BS
And reveal your plight. The jig is up,
The cat's out of the Bag,
Might as well spill teh beans 'cause what YOU
have to explicate is something the World has heard
And seen. YOU must feel real feel feeble and inept like
An unborn Fetus 'cause the convoluted and facetious gameplan
You laid out has imploded and smeared across your Face. So
Come correct or don't come at all 'cause at the end of the day,
YOU are just another Snake in the Grass....with your Lying Ass.

Lena Horne

On May 9, 2010, the great Lena Horne died at the age of 92 in a New York Hospital. Some say she was born 50 years too early because she never got the opportunity to be a big movie star because of her skin color. Horne was the first African-American to be signed to a major movie company. She was yet another civil rights activist who used her celebrity to make an impact in the world. Horne worked with Eleanor Roosevelt to pass anti-lynching laws. She was a strong supporter of the NAACP but due to her ties with the organization, she was blacklisted from doing any movies after her contract with MGM ended in 1950. She was a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. She will truly be missed.
