America Trained Ruth Bader Ginsburg in the Art of Dissent

I don’t like politicizing her death. I hate it. But, I’m doing it, because I can’t help it. That’s what happens when important people transition. I guess that’s what I gotta keep telling myself. But that’s also not fair to this old white lady. And this old white lady been an old white lady, forever. You know what? You know what she was, to us? She was the old white lady, that old white teacher you didn’t grasp how much she injected progressive values in her teachings until you were…

Ruth Bader Ginsburg the Revolutionary 2020 Couldn’t Live Without

“I want to be remembered as someone who used whatever talent she had to do her work to the very best of her ability. And to help repair tears in her society, to make things a little better through the use of whatever ability she has. To do something outside myself. Cause I’ve gotten much more satisfaction for the things that I’ve done for which I was not paid”, Ginsburg told Irin Carmon in a 2015 interview on MSNBC. The revolutionary icon departed today at the age of 87 to…

It leads me beside petty, troubled waters. Yet, it restores my soul. It guides me in the paths of pettiness for the sake of it’s name. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of White America and Mayonnaise, I will fear no racists, for Petty are with me. It’s rod and it’s staff, they comfort me.It prepares a table before me in the presence of racist ass white folks. It anoints my head with black oil moisturizer, my…

DJ TLewis, The World’s Greatest DJ! You Mad?

This episode was personal for so many reasons but this one was for the city. JACKSON, MISSISSIPPI. I was asked why I wasn’t promoting that he was Young Money’s Own Lil Wayne’s DJ and I thought about doing it. Sure, that would’ve gathered more attention, maybe, maybe not.

Lewis is a self made brand and that should…
