@ 420, I listened to Wyclef’s “Justice” video pave the road that Trayvon Martin could have taken if his journey was not cut short. He explains the possibilities of Trayvon’s future as a President, Teacher, Astronaut, etc. And I wonder about my neighborhood hoodie wearing teens and I see those positions and then some for our youth. But Kings & Queens I’ve also seen the wanna be Lil Wayne on the corner, the fugazi Kobie at the park and the bootleg Larry Fitzgerald driving down my street and they could be these people one day or even greater, but what if they are all carrying the biggest weapon of mass destruction, ignorance.
Ignorance is what ended Trayvon’s physical journey, not just the gun. The gun in the hands of an intelligent man, with common sense, would have never come close to that child. The man with knowledge of self and his purpose would have never been lurking for a victim but trying to create a hero.
So to my neighborhood / village Royales, watch… not just for the villain but for ignorance, the disease, that crawls through the sound waves, imagery and even gets passed down from generation to generation. Yearn for knowledge so that our princesses will have more than a jester.
