I have Traversed tha Earth for ½ Century, born on Plantation AmeriKKKa
I am a Warrior of the Pen (& deed) a Spoken Word Performer, Artist & Active Activist
I Write to liberate the Planet…I take Our POETRY very Seriously,
I write to Slay our Enemies & Perform Psycho-Spiritual-Surgery upon my Family
The Primary scribe “Anti-Pimp Manifesto” (It was last months winning Poem on Russell Simmons “DefPoetryJam.com”) is a Counter Strike to tha Current Media Flood of Hailing & Celebrating Pimps as Heroes & Socially Acceptable Role models in Our Communities! I consider this as an act of Psychological Warfare/Genocide and Gross Irresponsible Negligence by tha Watchers of the Airwaves!
The White Man Must Die!!! is a move to Annihilate Eurocentric Racist Paradigms
As tha “Arrogance” of this Euro-Centric World Escalates & their Crimes Against Humanity Increases so does tha Momentum of tha Backlash of Karma . . .
WE must Slay tha Monstrosity of Abject Ego that is the ‘Root’ of White Supremacy before it Destroys Us All . . .
*Melanite* People have yet to receive Justice from Europe or AmeriKKKa . . . .
Yet when tha Avowed Enemies of these Nations Strike WE continue to Die Wholesale in these Assaults . . . i.e. tha twin towers 9-11 & or We are Placed on tha Frontline/Infantry on the Shores/Interiors of Invaded Countries . . .

This book explodes several myths: that selling sex is completely different from any other kind of work, that migrants who sell sex are passive victims and that the multitude of people out to save them are without self-interest. Laura Agustín makes a passionate case against these stereotypes, arguing that the label ‘trafficked’ does not accurately describe migrants’ lives and that the ‘rescue industry’ serves to disempower them. Based on extensive research amongst both migrants who sell sex and social helpers, Sex at the Margins provides a radically different analysis. Frequently, says Agustin, migrants make rational choices to travel and work in the sex industry, and although they are treated like a marginalised group they form part of the dynamic global economy. Both powerful and controversial, this book is essential reading for all those who want to understand the increasingly important relationship between sex markets, migration and the desire for social justice. “Sex at the Margins rips apart distinctions between migrants, service work and sexual labour and reveals the utter complexity of the contemporary sex industry. This book is set to be a trailblazer in the study of sexuality.”Lisa Adkins, University of London

A Novel by Jesmyn Ward
On one level, Salvage the Bones is a simple story about a poor black family thats about to be trashed by one of the most deadly hurricanes in U.S. history. What makes the novel so powerful, though, is the way Ward winds private passions with that menace gathering force out in the Gulf of Mexico. Without a hint of pretension, in the simple lives of these poor people living among chickens and abandoned cars, she evokes the tenacious love and desperation of classical tragedy. The force that pushes back against Katrinas inexorable winds is the voice of Wards narrator, a 14-year-old girl named Esch, the only daughter among four siblings. Precocious, passionate and sensitive, she speaks almost entirely in phrases soaked in her familys raw land. Everything here is gritty, loamy and alive, as though the very soil were animated. Her brothers blood smells like wet hot earth after summer rain. . . . His scalp looks like fresh turned dirt. Her fathers hands are like gravel, while her own hand slides through his grip like a wet fish, and a handsome boys muscles jabbered like chickens. Admittedly, Ward can push so hard on this simile-obsessed style that her paragraphs risk sounding like a compost heap, but this isnt usually just metaphor for metaphors sake. She conveys something fundamental about Eschs fluid state of mind: her figurative sense of the world in which all things correspond and connect. She and her brothers live in a ramshackle house steeped in grief since their mother died giving birth to her last child. . . . What remains, whats salvaged, is something indomitable in these tough siblings, the strength of their love, the permanence of their devotion.WashingtonPost
