No Justice. No Peace.

Baltimore-riots

 The riots following that erupted following Freddie Grey’s funeral and have led President Obama to declare a State of Emergency in Baltimore have to be understood in the context of oppression. Though I in no way condone or believe it constructive or appropriate to put in danger the lives of others, it is certainly incumbent upon us to consider the vicious cycle of oppression that leads to outcries in the streets.

If you would like to hear more about our opportunity for becoming allies, fighting together to bring social justice to our communities and our lives, please tune in today’s episode of DJ and Da Bear: Keeping You at the Top of Your Game.

A Dream Deferred

What happens to a dream deferred?

Does it dry up
like a raisin in the sun?
Or fester like a sore–
And then run?
Does it stink like rotten meat?
Or crust and sugar over–
like a syrupy sweet?

Maybe it just sags
like a heavy load.

Or does it explode?

                                                    -Langston Hughes
