deaths in chiraq- just the rappers…***messymandella***


You understand that citizens in Chiraq are in desperation for a soul-searching purpose and national support in the killing fields caused by the youth. The adults are prisoners of their own homes and the roles are reversed in a desolate life of deference. Conformity is the easiest manipulator of this violence and drilling movement. Again, Chicago, is not an isolated city, that should be blamed for all the deaths of upcoming rappers. We know “men lie, women lie, but numbers don’t lie.” Hopefully, watching their music at your leisure, and looking into your hearts could spare the life of one, little boy or girl.
 
Hip Hop has not always had a history of gang violence, but as a culture we are loosing so many young men in regards to statements made in a studio. Sadly, before these hip hop hopefuls seldom make history, but they always make an obituary.
We also are surprisingly under the impression that the war in this sate will just go away, if we focus on other issues.
 
NO,
 

 
We are loosing numerous young men and women in babies, and they will never get media attention because a white man didn’t pull the trigger!
 
The deaths in Chiraq are in tune with any other war and genocide. What about the innocent people who lose their babies to stray bullets? Rent a gymnasium, bring all your guns and bullets there and settle your beefs there. Stop ending lives of people who are actually want to uplift their people and not destroy them. Some parents are unable there for their children. Some parents are in factories and restaurants 9-5 and dedicated to working extra hours to build a promising life.
Why should their children feel obligated to choose a gang just to survive?
 
Gangs and their Tyshawn Lee, and that baby has pictures in his little school uniform and book bag. If you could still pick up a gun in Chiraq after that baby’s life, you are inhumane and have numbed yourself of human decency. Yes, you need those guns to survive, but this is a mental war.
 
You are surviving in the cesspool that you created, and the elders around you have no doubt demonstrated.
I look around where I am living, but know that the same gang violence is 15 miles away and purposely avoid those areas.

 
Why should I have to avoid places with people who have the same ethical background and color of skin of me? If you are not a violent person, you are afraid that you will encounter violence in certain clubs, bars and neighborhoods.

What if you only have that place in Chiraq? Parents have a extremely difficult time watching their children or even planning for the future.
Activist are murdered for trying to helping their community. It is easier to stand back and observe the destruction of the culture, but harder to speak up.

I love my people of all races, but some wealthy and terrified individuals will assume that all black women only want baby daddy’s but will raise families from the government but still keep getting pregnant by the same dead beat. I didn’t grow up like that, I watched my friends being raised by their aunts and grandmother’s because some parents could not provide.
 
ALL OF US ARE NOT LIKE THAT!
 
ALL OF US ARE NOT CARRYING A GUN EVERY WEEKEND JUST IN CASE…
 
Those damn stereotypes, will always follow people of color if we increase that image in society. The violence increases and the stereotypes gain a larger audience, and segregates demographics, due to false impressions and the actions of a few.
 
I pray and cry for our youth to understand that songs don’t have to be examples on how to live. I listen to a song, and don’t live the songs, but I love hip hop.
 
The youth understand that conscious rappers do not garner airplay. The gang culture has swept into hip hop, but it was never supposed to be intertwined. We had songs that dealt with the betterment of our children. We have forgotten, that hip hop in the 1980’s and 1990’s embraced love. NWA came along and a few others and we assumed the worse we treated our people, the better the rapper and bigger the sales.
 
Now, what do we have? Our views and misrepresentations of our people are integral in this list.
In Chiraq, We have a list of rappers in one area, that never even made it to the radio or the age of legal consent. Watching something so beautiful turn into something used to end lives, I wonder do these rappers even appreciate hip hop?
Do they understand, dropping bodies will not make you “real” but it will make you “real dead?”

 
 
The list of 2015 dead Chiraquians will most definitely be just as saddening. Most people have never heard of these people. If you visit YouTube to watch their videos, you will be sickened by their talent and promise that never had a chance to flourish.
Why kill each other below that is not the only way to get money in the industry? That doesn’t make you a rapper. Adele, Oprah and Beyoncé aren’t killing people to garner fans or become millionaires, there are other ways to become successful. Killing makes you a self-hating person.
You will not find more than 20 recent videos in mainstream that don’t brag about gang affiliation. We are still mentally enslaved and it is easier to ignore the truth. I can separate the truth and not fall in the trap, but the people in this video (above) never had a chance to separate the gimmick from the art form.

 
Will you?
 

 

Best of 2015-Lil TeRio Is Still Being Exploited! ***messymandella***

 

Ohh Kill Em!
 If Terrio don’t drop The Weight, that is exactly what will happen!

        That little cute pleasantly plump boy with those humorous and energetic dance steps, rose to “Vine” Victory and became a symbol of over exposure due to manipulative parents that are extorting their babies to buy weave and are endangering a child, that is instrumental  in destroying his life.

642pfr

We must bring awareness to the negative  attention  that is and entertained and even inspired Hip Hop Artist to name drop him and also have him tag along with their entourage and involvement in their commercial endeavors, and  comically. He signed with a Talent Agent, and now will also have his own reality show and  currently has his on VEVO.

      Terio was a cute little boy, but once the cuteness wears off as it, then he will be an obese teenager that has already strained the muscles of heart, to be a cash cow for his family.  We know that this notoriety will eventually be a memory. His gigantic body has now stopped being comical and now are harboring on plain child endangerment.
        We can get so immersed in the fame and money , but as his parents continue to embrace his fame, he keeps gaining weight to the point of him not being able to walk.

         Terio is now wobbling and currently his little fame has endangered, his frame and health and fitness but currently he is so called exercising.

Where are his parents? we are , they eating with him!

Who is feeding this baby like a prize money cow?

He is not going to bring you money if he is dead, or has heart problems.
Don’t think it can happen?

 

Lil-Terio-Weight-Gain
 I had a cousin named Annie and we grew up as sisters and she was always my protector.

She was so real, protective and funny and loved me.

When women wanted to fight me, she would tell them, “Yes, my cousin is prissy and girlie, but if she wasn’t my cousin I wouldn’t like her either. However, She is my cousin, so ya’ll going to leave her alone.” I would be like, “thanks, thanks a lot, I guess?” She took care of her petite little cousin, that was hated on for who I was and my outer appearance.

She was always enormous  and full of energy and life, and was not afraid to fight men either.

SHE WOULD WIN EACH FIGHT!
She and I have always been sisters and she loved me with all her heart…
 tumblr_inline_n1kioneKwe1qg19kz

Annie’s weight eventually destroyed her entire heart and the doctor told her if she didn’t lose weight she would be dead by 31.

My cousin passed away at 32 Years Old of a heart attack, and we traveled to Gastonia, North Carolina to be there when they pulled the plug, on my sister.

 As I was crying, I looked up and noticed that my sSister still had the burn mark from the iron, when she was 9 years old.

My sister is no longer with me, and I will never let her son ever lose our families love.

He will be 4 Years Old and I will make sure it will not happen to him, dying from over eating?
 It is time to stop laughing at Terio and get him some guidance.

It is ethically unfair to not step in to intervine, when his parents don’t seem to give a damn.

He can’t drive to Burger King. Stop feeding him 17 corn dogs, and feed him vegetables.

He is wearing his heart down every single day because of his weight gain and neglect from his family.
If he doesn’t lose weight, his heart will eventually be too feeble for Gastric Bypass Surgery.
 That is the only reason my cousin was unable to receive it, her heart was weakened over the years from all the weight.

We laughed at her size, and her eating because we never assumed she could die at the age of 32 Years Old.
 She was about the size of Terio in her adolescent years.

Obesity destroyed a mother, my sister and part of my heart,  Annie! She did not  have any time with her son.  She always said, “I know I have a bad heart, but let me see my son gradate from high school. God can take me then!”

I still have not deleted her phone number out of my old cell phone.

She will never answer, but at least that number, and her son are proof my first cousin, my sister was here!
 Help Terio survive.

It is not comical watching someone destroy their heart muscles, and suffer from hypertension before they become 35 years old. He can still have these componets and garner money, but someone should stop allowing him to eat himself to death, to feed their pockets.
