deaths in chiraq- just the rappers…***messymandella***this message is ONLY for the young that still have a chance

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.


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.



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?

          In our society if you are single on Valentine’s Day, you are a failure according to the diamond companies, Hallmark and commercialism of Valentine’s Day.  If you do not receive  an abundance of materialistic presents on Christmas, then you may feel inclined to lie about everything you received. More gifts, means you have more loved? People assume that after a funeral that you are gone. In the casket, it is a shell of that person and even though you may not be able to hug or talk to them, they are not spiritually gone. Your spirit and energy doesn’t die, just the shell of your former self, you still have that person and you can feel when their is an indication that your loved one is still loving you, looking over and protecting you.


        It was a story of a man that entered a home and was about to burglarize and assault a woman but he ran away. The police did eventually located the fleeing burglar, but asked him, “Why did you run?” He told the police,”Because of those two men standing behind her.” Later they asked the lady about the two men that were there and she was puzzled because she was by herself the entire day. NO ONE was there,or so she thought… 

        We don’t leave this world, and you can be confident in knowing what ever you believe about the spiritual world,realize people can share connections even if they never have met. If energy doesn’t die, and the spirit doesn’t die then your loved ones are still here in spirit. NO, not like a ghost town or anything like that, but a spirit that will give you strength when you feel you are alone.

         You can feel their energy hovering around you and just understand that you will behold their smile again and you will have a opportunity to hear them laugh again. They are fully aware of your bereavement, but they are no longer in anguish and unrest, we are the ones that suffer,now.     

             If the connection is that strong you know that their presence is not far behind you and you can feel their love around you. You may be devastated in this point of time, but their spirit is dancing in the moonlight, so just try to dry some of those tears and don’t hold on to blame, mistrust, or arguments that were never resolved. They are still here,even if you don’t recognize your loved ones presence they are still smiling back at you.


Nelson Mandela: Our “Madiba” Tribute With Love ***messymandella***

Nelson Mandela lived behind bars 27 years, to break boundaries for us!

Yes, of course we are sad. But it’s like when your grandfather passes away, we celebrate their life work and we smile and we dance. We do this for him even more,” Celina Makoba told me as she clapped her hands to the traditional music that has transformed the street in front of Mandela’s home into a festival.”-people of Johannesburg

Unsung Model And First Black Cover Girl, Lana Ogilvie***messymandella***

          I would flip through magazines growing up and blossoming into a petite little woman with a colossal personality, and noticed someone too intriguing and confident for further description at that moment.

         While striving and demanding equal right are important to leave your mark, even if unsung by the greatest, her legacy has proof and she deserves her acknowledgement for not only involving her body  just her nude Instigram photos every other day,  to become “famous!”

           We are more than that just  how are thighs are and how much are body can be shown for people who don’t deserve a peek at it. Our appearances are only a miniscule block  of the foundation that composes our existence, and makes you that woman you will become and you will regret the time you wasted, on the superficial. You have the right to love your body, but there is so much more than that, you could be advertising on-line.




I glanced at an advertisement and noticed the Breath Taking and confident, Lana Olgivie.




I already made my mind of what Gorgeous meant, and who was the fashionable woman who would be my fashion muse until I gazed at Lana.




           Once I left my high-end job of cooking chicken at Hardees and smelling like a chicken pit and covered with flour every other day;I still maintained my hair styles and kept my Cover Girl powder and wet and wild lipstick on stand by.
I would escape into my on world and buy myself three magazines with my Hardees check, because I was filthy rich. Yup, rolling in chicken flour and dough…



  Lana Ogilvie created a vast amount of opportunities for women of color,and she should be paid homage to buy every model of color.

Lana  still remains current in the model agency and as stunning as she was  over 20 years ago.




    Lana  has appeared in Mademoiselle, Essence, Sports Illustrated, Elle, Vogue, Glamour, and Harper’s Bazaar. She has also created her own  jewelry company,”Sabre.”



             We women must remember  those that were integral in our perspective as children. Every one that inspired you in the past are of course the reason and inspiration for the person you have become!




In this fashionable and ever-changing world, talent and class never can be forgotten and self-respect and inspiration should be celebrated.
