The ABC’s of a Black Man’s Principles

This is the first official mention to of my book “The ABC’s of a Black Man’s Principles.”  Im so proud of the attentive focus Ive placed toward the contents and presentation of this book.

I believe its contents to be such an essential element necessary in the Black community. The book is a directed address to all of Black men but the practicality make each covered point extremely applicable and relevant across culture and gender.

Its Foundational principles may be some men and young mens first introduction to such essential life values.

Not only is the book full of vital content it also is a great contribution from a black male in the literary community.

Please stay tuned for its published release  and availability as early as January.

“Dada I want grapes in it.”
“In your oatmeal baby?”
“Yea, I want grapes in it”…

The realest shit I ever done wasn’t shooting at niggaz, selling no pz, fucking no bitches, or none the silly ass shit Ive done that niggaz respect me for. The realest shit I ever did was make oatmeal for my son.

Q. How many black boys starve for they pops nurture?…

A. None of mine….

“How many grapes u want baby”
I laugh to myself and appreciate the value in this moment.

“okay crazy boy eat it all and don’t spill it.”
…” And Hurry up so I can take u to school.”

2 struggle 4 self

When I turned 19 I got my forearms tatted by the homie Rudy at ink pagoda. Im 28 now and I always forget that they even there.

It takes somebody asking me what it means for me to remember em.

It some lil Chinese lookin shit that’s actually Mongolian for “to struggle” on my right and “for self” on my left.
(Right to left)

That’s what the fuck I’m about.  My whole life has been a struggle. Struggling is not a glamourous thing to be about. Its ignorant to struggle just to struggle you have to have a purpose. I believe my struggle is so purposeful and objective.

I truly have a life direction and destiny and there is no way I can get to it without audacious ingenuity and struggle.

Choice words

As each one fills his mouth with his destiny. The wisest chooses his fill carefully.

Truth be told…

To carry lies and tell them throughout a lifetime is terrible.  What then is a lifetime holding truth to never tell it?

my internal

I Personally Derive from Deep Unsurity and Insecurity and believe that i have developed and nurtured my own perspectives and principles into harsh convictions in order to compensate and become of balance within MYSELF. I am a avid seeker of SPIRITUAL truth and believe myself to be on some narrow path of it. I believe myself to a purposeful sort and I work internally within my thoughts daily to cultivate this belief.I think that My God’s blessings of me come through my efforts and not through any entitlement. I Believe my Knowledge of God to be Only true provision made for me in my lifetime.

my perspective

At the depths of my heart I think Everything is perspective! and as well I believe Perspective is Everything. Everything stems and construes from each’s own perspective. that being said My perspective is a SELFISH one. I believe that life should be a progressive pursuit of ones ultimate self through growth of perspective as it is applicable to you!!

so as one would read my blog I ask them to consider each is from MY perspective and is simply my own attempts to clarify within MYSELF my own steps toward My own Personal growth through My Own Personal Experience. I pray you read something RELATIVE to YOURSELF
