Welcome To Chicago: “A Place Where 6 Month Old Babies Take Bullets To The Face”

Madam Prezident

I wrote this poem for the lives lost in Chicago due to senseless gang violence.

Welcome to Chicago
The Place of the cold case
Where 6 month old babies take bullets to the face
Welcome to Chicago
“Where you have to stop”
When you hear gun shots
Hit the floor
And hope a bullet
Doesn’t come through the door
“Welcome to Chicago”
The place where you hear
Of caskets being lowered to the ground
You hear Mothers WEEP
Beyond caskets going 6ft deep
WELCOME TO CHICAGO
Where our schools system
Is a fools system
Place our children at the bottom of the pool system
You got 1 teacher to 30 kids
All in room
So in actuality you got 1 teacher
To 30 dreams that’s all trying to bloom
And our children want hugs and love
Instead of a community flooded with drugs
They want grade level books
So they won’t have infantile education and knowledge
They want to have the conversation about
“Where they’re going to college”
And they want their father’s home
Instead of 26th and California
Where it’s not sunny
Our children still make time to laugh
But it’s not “funny”
“The deconstruction of the black family”
To get a piece of this American Pie
Ain’t No piece of cake
They’ve already labeled us as 3/5ths of a man
Which explains the high unemployment rates
‘To the black race
BUT THERE’S SOMETHING ABOUT GOD’S GRACE
Where he can place his angels across a Chicago skyline
Reduces a young man’s jail time
Change POVERTY into Prosperity
Decrease the high school drop-out rate
And Increase the college graduate rate
Make No mistake about God’s grace
Even a place where bullets are flying
Children are dying
And mothers are crying
There is still a HIGHER POWER
That Channel 5, 7, and 9 News won’t acknowledge at the top of the hour
And his blessings exceeds the height of the Sears tower
‘WELCOM TO CHICAGO’
A place where God calms a storm
A place where
Some of your best black doctors, lawyers, surgeons, authors, and play writers were BORN!
‘WELCOME TO CHICAGO’
Where the struggle still exist
A place where we work hard
For low wages, pay high taxes,
BUT OUR SPIRTIS ARE STILL RICH
No matter how good or bad it may get
I am a PRODUCT of THIS
”WELCOME TO CHICAGO”

Tami Roman’s daughter doesn’t like being in the spotlight her mother created for her. The young lady caught some backlash for her appearance on a recent basketball wives episode. Lyric was clowned by her peers on twitter, and instagram, and she had a little response of her own.

“You guys watch and tear apart everything you see. That’s one of the things I hate about being in the public eye & filming for reality TV” she tweeted.

“If it were up to me, I’d never tape for BBW. I’m not picture perfect. I have flaws like everyone else. I don’t look like a model everyday,”

 

I’m pissed! Weave was not poppin on this scene y’all LOL… I had just gotten off a flight…had no time to get it done! Ahhhh

OH WELL! Every Black girl has had a bad weave day before…I’m no different!

I’d be happy if I just ended up as a successful lawyer, married, with kids. Free from all the scrutiny.
— LyricChanel_ (@LyricChanel_) September 17, 2013

My privacy & self-love is worth more than any amount of fame.
— LyricChanel_ (@LyricChanel_) September 17, 2013

Lyric continued and Tammi apologized via Instagram for exposing her daughter  to reality TV altogether.

I’m glad Tammi took time to apologize to her daughter. Tammi should take the time and apologize to everyone’s daughter for the sake of the belligerent ignorance that is demonstrated between women of color on the show. I stopped watching most of America’s reality tv shows because they are just a sad rendition of  success, glamour, and hard work.

From TMZ 

The man who allegedly attempted to extort $250,000 from Paula Deen has just been sentenced to 2 years in prison, TMZ has learned.

As we reported, a man named Thomas Paculis contacted Deen’s attorney claiming he would release “true and damning” information about the celebrity chef’s n-word usage if he didn’t receive a huge check. The FBI tracked Paculis down and he was subsequently arrested and charged with two counts of extortion.

Paculis struck a plea bargain with prosecutors last month, agreeing to plead guilty to one count of extortion. In exchange, prosecutors dropped the remaining count.

Antoine Dodson Delivered From Homosexuality, Finds A Wife, & They’re Expecting Their First Child

Antoine+Dodson gayantoine dodson as a man

We all remember “hide yo kids hide yo wife” Antoine Dodson making his debut on television after his sister was attacked by a stranger who climbed in her window and assaulted her before Dodson came to her rescue. Now, we didn’t need Dodson to tell us he was gay because he wore long weaves and smacked his lips behind each word like a woman, so I think it’s safe to say we all concluded that he was gay and our assumptions at the time were correct.

Now, Antoine Dodson has renounced his homosexuality and has converted to the religion practices of an Israelite.

dodson renounce his sexuality

That’s not the full tea, Dodson is also married to a woman and they are expecting their first child. Dodson tweeted,

“I just became the happiest man alive!! My beautiful Queen and I are having a baby!!”

Congrats to Dodson and his wife, but I have to ask you ladies a question can you have a relationship with a man who has had previous relationships with men?
