“When you talk about urban violence, it stems from this hopelessness that comes from not having direct access to things that you want, need, or should have,” he said. “The economy often times leads to the violence. The question is whether or not the policies that come from the speeches address real change. We’d like to see some plan for urban communities that addresses jobs, housing, and schools. We need some nation building in our own country.”
Hip-hop artist and Black Youth Project blogger Jasiri X, quoted in this recent post:
“Remember to look up at the stars, and not down to your feet. Try to make sense of what you see, and wonder about what makes the universe exist. Be curious. And however difficult life may seem, there is always something you can do and succeed at. It matters that you don’t just give up.”
Alright, it’s time for a little political rant. Now, I understand that the Republicans think they’re doing good by making it near impossible for these women to get abortions, but they’re just plain wrong. I’m still trying to figure out how someone can look at this situation and think “As an acting member in the United States government, it is my job to tell this women when and how she can have a child”. Lets think about this for a second people; imagine if it was turned around and women were telling men what to do with their penises? None of this crap would be going down, abortion would be 100% legal in every state. Now, don’t get me wrong, I’m not a fan of abortion. But really, no woman is. A woman chooses an abortion as a last resort, not because she’s thinking, “man I really just want to kill my baby”. But there are so many cases in which an abortion is necessary for the mother or fetus’s health, including mental health. These guys trying to prevent women from doing something that probably is the best decision for everyone involved is appalling. Spread the word and help women around the country. Don’t listen to the bullshit these narrow-minded, controlling, conservative men are spouting.
