   The stench of  beaten human flesh can burn your eyes,  and the disgust of unjust blood shed can haunt you forever. An  unjust death robs a family of sleep and comprehension of their comfortable society. New Years 2009 , Oscar and some of his friends where boarding the Bay Area Transit System in San Francisco, California.  Oscar Grant, 22 years old suffered a humiliating and merciless beating without provocation. The passengers of Fruitvaile pleaded for the cops, “Stop, Leave Em‘ Alone.”

         You can hear Billy clubs, cursing smashing and tearing at him and his friends. All ears and eyes are witnessing a lynching in 2009 from the ones that are supposed to “Protect and Serve.” Oscar Grant lost his life by traveling on the transit system. In the video you can look at  him before walking and hear his voice. Oscar never walks out of Fruitvale. The entire station validated  the racist, and brutality police officers delivered in the BART station that night. The actions that occurred on New Years 2009, are now witnessed and relived in theatres so individuals can experience the moment that was ignored in the media. Oscar Grant  was murdered like it was Jim Crow South, in 1913. The police man screams, “You Bitch Ass Nig…”

               In South Carolina, my great-grandmother shared  stories of violence, suffering , lynching and raping of our women. You could only sit back and  watch in horror. She pointed out roads, and sheds that were used for hanging black men when she was a little girl. The black men would vanish, and later  be found beyond recognition.  Even, with the Murderer  staring right in their face, they were powerless!  No one wanted to meet their demise.  No one wanted to  end up hanging from a tree, so you bit your lip in silence, and sent other male family members to”find him” because they already knew he was  gone, forever.

              Now in 2013 we are reminded that we still have “Strange Fruit” in America. We  still has a lynching problem, now ropes are obsolete but bullets tear into the hearts of  minority men at a steady rate. Oscar  Grant’ obituary only exist because of the unfair stigma and hate that permeates are sensibilities of our urban stereotypes.

           Innocent bystanders knew that Johannes Mehserle and the other BART Lynching team members , were under no circumstances dealing with a man who was resisting arrest. The officer defiantly and criminally created more of a mental segregation of police and ethnic men in this society. 

           Thankfully for cellular phone footage; the  life of Oscar Grant and his legacy  will  be remain untarnished . Oscar  has a daughter that will one day watch this video, and realize that no one can flip  flop this story.  Her father is not to  blame, The  police mans’ defense,  was a travesty and no accident, and there is not a reason in hell, or any other justification for her daddy’s  death.  We need atonement  and  ACTION!

       Her father, Oscar Grant III died  innocently and in a racist  nature that reminds us just because we believe in unity, some of us will never embrace all races and backgrounds. Urban men and police have this fine line, and it will always get crossed. No matter the action,  the officer will get a slap on the wrist, while urban men are getting a casket door closed above their heads.

 He was tasered, handcuffed, forced to the ground while begging for his life before the fatal gun shot wound.

Oscar Grant  received a bullet in his body face down and  handcuffed.


The video explains the verdict, that rivals the infamous Trayvon Martin and Casey Anthony  case.

Justice seems to be in hibernation, and currently these verdicts are just insulting our intelligence.

LIL Wayne (HOLLYWEEZY) ***messymandella*** Daddy Gone! I Was Going Through A Separation, Because Bird Man And Young Thug Put Me Through Changes!


Classic ***messymandella*** because I ain’t hitting on shit…
 Birdman is not giving up on Lil Wayne and he shall not be moved. We know Lil Wayne loves his Sugar Daddy but when business and personal relationships conflict, eventually the money will always be the reason for the treason.
Lil Wayne had a jheri curl when he first met his “Daddy” but the look in Bird Man’s eyes let him know that he would always be the “Bottom Rapper” of their entire empire, of course with Birdman turning out so many at a time someone has to make sure that no one is robbing the Empire.

Lil Wayne has finally woken out the self induced Codeine Trip and realizes that he has been pimped. I would have told him that he was being Pimped. Birdman has a firm guiding hand on his stable. Tyga could kick rocks and Birdman wouldn’t lose any sleep at night but Lil Wayne can not move out of his life or his recording contract.

Couples and friends disagree and we must understand that no one wants to just walk away. Birdman is upset about the disrespectful tweets and concert announcements of their pending break up.

“I want off this label and nothing to do with these people.” was a direct quote from Lil Wayne.

Well, Lil Wayne you will have a hard time trying to “Choose Up” in comparison to “Birdman” but I am confident he will manage. So for now, end the relationship and business agreement and just do this, wait just vent. Making up is so much better.

Don’t let Young Thug come between you guys. I hate this break up has created unnecessary tension. Please make up. It, its not too late.
