gays, politics, technology (Negros must
learn computers especially inner city youth),
women’s rights, men’s responsibilities to
their families, sex (teach kids to be responsible

The last several weeks my mind has been marinated by
the voices of Nikki Giovanni, Al Letson, the passionate
and at times controversial words of Malcolm X.
Not the Malcolm that called Whites, blue or brown eyed
devils, but the Malcolm that came back from the pilgrimage
to Mecca (the Hajj) believed in the ability of men to be
brothers. To respect each other and be at peace in this
world. Everyone deserves a second chance to change
the world in a positive direction.
