Rapper Nas Letter To Chicago “Warriors”

Warrior definition according to Merriam Webster: “a man engaged or experienced in warfare; broadly : a person engaged in some struggle or conflict”

Global Grind has posted the following letter in response to the brutal murder of Derrion Albert in Chicago;

Open Letter To Young Warriors In Chicago

Dear Young Warriors fighting the wrong wars!   Killing each other is definitely played out. Being hurt from the lost of a love one was never cool.

Dear Young Warriors fighting the wrong war! I know that feeling, that frustration with life and needing to take it out on someone, any one. But….

We chose the dumbest things to go the hardest for.  I remember seeing deaths over 8 ball jackets, Fila sneakers, and name plate chains. Deaths over “he say, she say”!!!!! “I’m from this block or I’m from that block”, or “my moms n pops is f*cked up now the whole world gotta pay”!!!

I remember feeling like I was the hardest “n*gga” breathing.  And I couldn’t wait to prove it. But let’s think. What are we really proving?? And proving what to who?? Everybody knows Chicago breeds the strongest of the strong but I just feel, me, being ya brother from another state feels your pain as if I grew up with you in ya very own household.

You have the ability and mindpower to change they way we are looked at.  Look who’s watching us young warriors, look who’s throwing us in jail constantly, look at the ignorance in the world. Look at the racist dogs who love to see us down. Loving to bury us in the ground or in jail where we continue this worthless war on one another.

Young warriors…. We are WASTING more and more time. We gotta get on our jobs and take over the world. Cuz this movie left the theaters years ago, Juice, Menace, Boys n the Hood , Blood n Blood Out, Belly!

When we see each other why do we see hatred? Why were we born in a storm, born soldiers, WARRIORS….and instead of building each other up we are at war with each other.. May the soul of this young person find peace with the almighty. I’m with you young warriors. You’re me and I’m you. But trust me! you are fighting the wrong war.

This sh*t sucks !!

-Nas

Nas if you are the best choice to lead the black youth, they don’t have a chance. You write this letter as if the MURDERERS are somehow victims. The people that killed this innocent young man are not warriors – they are cowards.

You didn’t even have the courtesy or respect to mention Derrions name, only a link to video that was taken by some fool that decided to tape this killing instead of calling 911 or god forbid try to help this child.

You don’t even have the decency to tell the youth that witnessed this crime to come forward and name the MURDERERS instead of protecting them.

Then just for fun you throw racism into your diatribe, which is just ridiculous in this context. These MURDERERS are responsible for their own actions and need to held accountable for their actions.

So do you – Nas, you are a punk.

The Child – The Messiah – The Obamessiah

This parody was published on July 25, 2008 originally – it’s amazing how accurate this has become.

Exit question – How do you think they got ahold of Obama’s personal diary ;o)

Laboratory For Universal Health Care – Tennessee

We have solid evidence of what happens when the government tried to provide health care. It almost bankrupted Tennessee.

State spending in Tennessee, she says, accelerated from 2.5 billion dollars in 1995 to 8 billion in 2004 because people dropped their private insurance in favor of the “public option.”

In the case of plans being proposed in Congress it will be the employers dropping their/your private insurance – what choice?

Super Secret Obama Health Care Proposal

Most tranparent administration ever!

Via Roll Call:

The White House has been secretly drafting its own health care legislation that it may unveil at some point during the debate if officials believe it would help secure passage of a bill, according to sources familiar with the effort.

Sources differed on how far the process has gotten, with some saying a bill is basically finished and others saying they are aware only of a partially completed effort. White House officials, though they know their preferences, also appear to be constructing different options that could be thrown together depending on how the legislation is shaping up in Congress.

But all sources knowledgeable about the effort agreed the measure includes significant detail and possibly even some legislative language that could ensure the bill is ready to go the moment it is needed.

“They are getting ready for a backup,” said one veteran observer of health care debates who was knowledgeable about the effort. “It will be parachuted in if necessary.”

I would not be surprised if this shows up as an October surprise. “The One” knows what’s best for us.

Interesting Timing – The Supreme Court And Gun Rights

Via The Swamp:

The Supreme Court set the stage for a historic ruling on gun rights and the 2nd Amendment by agreeing today to hear a challenge to Chicago’s ban on handguns.

At issue is whether state and local gun-control ordinances can be struck down as violating the “right to keep and bear arms” in the 2nd Amendment.

A ruling on the issue, due by next summer, could open the door to legal challenges to various gun control measures in cities and states across the nation.

The timing overall is interesting – so is the City that they will be discussing. I don’t know about you, but based on what I’ve seen lately if I lived in Chicago I’d have guns duct taped all over my body. It’s apparent the police have no control over the violence and the bad guys are well armed. The citizens of Chicago need to arm themselves…………
