How About That!

That’s not right! You are so wrong. Are we there yet? Let’s Roll! What do you Think? Can you believe that? Shut Up! I’m cool with that. Check this out. DUDE! It is MIGHTY MANTRA TIME. Why are you staring at me? It’s okay for you to repeat yourself and be ever so cool. When I start repeating myself it becomes a problem. What! I see how you are.  So if you are on the opposite end of the spectrum, mainstream, or the normal who really ain’t normal at all, your words becomes buzzwords and catchy phrases. Don’t give me that SH…. about a slogan. Slogan This! Now there’s a catchy phrase. 🙂 I could have added an extra word after Slogan This but I promise to stay on track, focus, hold my concentration, or even meditate to keep from going off the deep end. How About That!

Why in the world if you are on FLIP SIDE OF THE CHART your buzzword turns into a big psychiatric disorder?  You find yourself on the DSM5 as a characteristics that needs to be medicated.  Shut Up!  People diagnosed with NLD repeat themselves and they have a CHANT or MANTRA.  So you think our words are meaningless. By now you know words can cause a WAR. Not understanding the person whose mouth it comes from makes another person feel the words have gone too far.  The OPPOSITE END OF THE SPECTRUM are chewing on their tongue. They think anybody that is not on their friends list and not trending today is permanently locked away in the film, One Who Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest. Jack did escape.  So did Anjelica Huston out of a Rocky Horror Picture Show love affair.  Did you receive your oscar?  The FLIP SIDE OF THE CHART brought the curtain down with taking home a slew of academy awards.

Who said people who are diagnosed with NLD SYNDROME do not possess creativity?  It just takes TIME like a bottle of wine to savor the flavor with extra labor. Creativity will arrive on the scene. Development may take a little longer but can you see what TIME brings.  Repeat yourself too much and you will end up under the UMBRELLA. Sad to say you and your speech will be viewed as not stronger.  RHIANA’s song did have that ECHO of UM-BREL-LA LA LA LA.  For some people Rhinana’s song may have been meaningless.  Start repeating yourself and you are viewed as DELAYED.  Strange how one person can be a sultry singer.  The other person will fall under the AUTISM SPECTRUM with echolalia and judge as low-grade.

Politicians use SOUND BITES to manipulate and give misleading information to sum up the real meaning of the conversation. Politicians shadow box all the TIME. Those SOUND BITES are repeated over and over again.  A person who is ECHOLALIA sounds like repeated SOUND BITES. The validity to their speech is misrepresented because they are parroting another person speech who may be very misleading and manipulative. Oh GOD! SCRIPTED is even worse. Before you say anything look at the verse. Rehearsed verse makes ones terse. It sort of like plagiarism in vocal reverse. That would surely make me curse. How About That!

Look across the field at all the different shirts made up of slogans out of hurt and pain. Continue to march and work on your PEACE because there is so much to be gained.   The unrest of gun violence ran rapid throughout our nation. Police turning their backs on Mayor Bill de Blasio attempted to taint the movement of  “Hands Up Don’t Shoot” and the “I Can’t Breath” conversation. Stay on your path and give recognition to your manta/chant/slogan/buzzword indeed.  Indoctrination of police protection has to be weeded and re-seeded. Plow out the old and sow in the new.   Trust between the police, the people and their communities will take the removal of police brutality, removal of blood from all hands and removal of gun powder residue.  From the Opposite End Of The Spectrum to the Flip Side Of The Chart it is Time to put our heads together and let’s get smart.   We must all do our fair share.  Let’s not react to negative situations on race, gun violence, and address mental illness to educate our nation to show we care. Start the Conversation. How About That!

I am cool with the mantra. It means on the FLIP SIDE OF THE CHART we are being repetitive and mimicking the words and behaviors of people who we think has legitimate speech that might be meaningful and it won’t get our A… in trouble. Guess what!  We discovered  the words and behavior of the so-called politically correct isn’t correct at all and is worthless as hell.  Such doubled standards!  The not so opportunity has struck and we are knee-deep in trouble. The OPPOSITE END OF THE SPECTRUM have high-profile jobs and get the opportunity to spit out their venomous mantras every day.  While the FLIP SIDE OF THE CHART is labeled with pervasive developmental delays, locked up and the keys are thrown away. How About That!

We all seek help so our words may be repetitive. It is neither black or white or trying to be competitive. Standing at the crossroad where there is great division. Our nation must find a way to prevent the Precision On Collision.  Turning ones back fuels the flames of  NO MERCY. Showing disrespect lies in the lap of police controversy.  The echoes are the cries for the ones we mourn and wipe tears from our eyes.  The police disrespect demonstrates the frustration, anger, and the possibility of a decision someone else might die.  Repeat the mantra. It doesn’t matter what side of the universe you represent. Who cares if you are called crazy as long as we can diminish the murders and show progress of less violence by a huge dent.  We have witness every race coming together to repeat the words and action for PEACE. Stop the violence and the murdering it is TIME for all to cease. How About That!

Dedicated to Bill de Blasio: Facing Forward! Moving Forward!

Precision On Collision

It happened countless of Times. The door opens up and it is Time for the routine walk. You both make eye contact and the words are spoken. “I will stay on my path and I will be extra careful.” Of course your son or daughter will do exactly what they set out to do.  Who are you worried about? You are worried about their life and the skin they are in. Whether or not if your child has a diagnosis of any type of syndrome/disorder it will always be Secondary.  This wasn’t for me but for you. All I could think of if the dots were being connected and the pieces of the puzzle were beginning to fit together. Will we get a whole puzzle? Will some of the pieces come up missing and the story will never be told correctly.

Wow! Mark Zuckerberg got up and put on his sweats and hoodie but he probably didn’t get stopped by the cops for looking suspicious. I had to make sure my son was not wearing a hoodie but there was no guarantee he would make it back home in one piece. He was not dress to impress but for safety.  Guess what?  Is there such a thing as safety?   Throughout my child’s life he suffered from asthma and the medication he had taken made it hard for him to lose weight. I don’t know if Mark was sleek all of his life. Mark was socially awkward but it never stopped him from reaching his full potentials. I bet Mark’s hoodies became more of a popular dress code than a non-verbal threat to his community.  It is a shame how the coin is so unpolished on the Flip Side Of The Chart.

There is something about a young black overweight male that is perceived as a gentle giant, a bully, or a huge Mandinka slave.  How did anyone derive at this perception? When my son was in middle school I noticed whenever he would become frustrated the teachers documentation read like a horror story. Not only that my son began to look more grown up on paper than his actual age. Something was really wrong with this picture. How can you be only in middle school but look like a full size adult on paper?  Even at the manifestation hearings I had to remind the superintendent, the principal, and the teachers my son was a child not an adult. Was the school system documenting my child for the prison system or for an early grave?  Did the test scores of the schools and their triple A rating mean more to them than the child? It must have meant something.  So much pressure was put on testing the school districts got busted for cheating nationwide. Many children fell through the cracks when it came to their mental stability. Who was going to be the first draft pick. It sure wasn’t going to be the children whom the school districts stigmatized for many years entering the small yellow bus with Special Education written all over it. Where in the hell does this concept come from when your child acted out he would immediately be thrown in a separate self-contained school better known as the DAY SCHOOL? Parents stay on top of your child’s documentation.

This is probably the hardest stories I have ever written. Knowing for years what the outcome was going to be before the barrage of murders had taken place.  Going from doctor to doctor and the doctors not addressing the race issue. Moving within your family and they didn’t want to address mental illness. Being Black an under attack spelled it in the story Got No Time To be Disabled. My son said it best. “They Can Kill Us With Impunity.” NLD will always be Secondary. Just as he was diagnosed with NLD, panic, anxiety, stress, and depression is Secondary to the original diagnosis of NLD.  This is not an NLD’s world. Inclusiveness instead of isolation is the key.   Having a diagnosis of NLD does not define the person he is.  He has to live in the skin that he is in.  Being Black is not a disability. He now understands he cannot exist inside a group’s thread but has to live with the reality of being Black.   Those prayers were just not for my son.  Knowing the Truth is tough. The Truth rides alongside of  consequences. The conversation has always existed and the doors of the church will always be open for change.

The sharpness of my son’s tongue is Precision. It is always what he says make people so pissed off and angry. He does not recognize that he has insulted you are if a person thinks he sounds threatening.  There will always be Collision with people who do not want to hear or know the Truth. These are the people who act on their words. Not the ones who speak with a sharp tongue, Precision.  Collision will always turn their back, react, and attack.

Exercise For Life__PEACE

Are you still eating on the leftovers from Thanksgiving? Are you full up to your neck? I bet that conversation around the Gobble Gobble table got pretty intense. Here we go! You haven’t seen some of your Outlaws for years.  Now you know WHY.  Wow! You mean to tell me you had to sit at the table and have a grateful Thanksgiving dinner with UNGRATEFUL A… people. They never contribute to the dinner except for criticism. This is the same crew if a family member dies they got all of these, “If I Were You” but they never want to contribute to the cause. All that tension builds up over the years and when a real volatile situation occur what happens. You go out and release the Beast instead of initiating PEACE. Sooo here’s a Brain exercise to help you lose some of the UNGRATEFUL LUGGAGE you have toted around for years. Stop saying PEACE OUT. Start saying PEACE IN. In order to initiate PEACE you learn to control the Beast within. Deport the people out of your life that don’t supply you with constructive criticism or explicit advice. DEPORTATION ANYONE!

So today on this Cyber Monday and many more Mondays to come we will begin our new exercise of ringing out the OLD and bringing in the NEW. Run and get your paper. Make sure you have a good pen or pencil so we don’t run out of lead or ink and become frustrated. Sometimes it is the little things like this that can break your train of thought. Sure the conclusion of your story is about to go south.   Are you ready?  What we are about to do is take the word PEACE and make an acronym to give some of our viewers the CONCRETE INFORMATION needed to help them build on their life skills of PEACE. Hear we go!

P-Purpose: I am on a mission Baby! What is your Plan? If it is about FERGUSON, Justification is where we stand. (Raison D’ etre)

E-Excuses are not allowed for the Execution of a young black man.

A-Abolish the laws that do not exonerate the innocent and the deceased.

C-Complex information/abstract english left several persons to their own devices to figure it out which rendered a major defeat.

E-Examining a volatile crisis can very easily IGNITE the Beast and EXTINGUISH THE PEACE.

What do your PEACE represent? Once you spell it out you can exercise those words into your life and practice new life skills.  Over on the FLIP SIDE OF THE CHART we process our information differently.  Some of us need a jumpstart to get us going in the right direction. A PICTURE IS NOT WORTH A THOUSAND WORDS especially if you do not have the rights words and the wrong information is given. This is WHY we get all the social rejection. We don’t get the picture especially not the WHOLE PICTURE.  Where In The World Is Carmen San Diego?  Where Is Waldo? I Spy. What are we looking for? Is there too much clutter to see what the PICTURE represent.  What happens when you cannot follow direction? Who is Carmen?  Who is Waldo? Who really is Michael Brown?  What happens when a person is left to their own devices. Can you draw the right CONCLUSION if it is not laid out CONCRETELY and EXPLICITLY.  What the opposite end of the spectrum did was INTENTIONAL and now we have FERGUSON. Did the Grand Jury get the right PICTURE?  Who does the Grand Jury Resemble?  Who IGNITED the Beast and EXTINGUISHED FERGUSON PEACE?

On the FLIP SIDE OF THE CHART we do not wish to be EXCLUDED.  It is hard to get the WHOLE PICTURE.  More power to you if you got a thousand words out of your PICTURE. Look what can happen to the PICTURE when you are mislead. You will not see EYE TO EYE. When you look through your lens and view your PICTURE.  It takes a person’s life experience, exploring their environment, and developing friends/relationship.  Did we encountered a totally different PICTURE which  affected our Decision Making Process?  It is the way one learns that will help a person not just retain information but help them understand the outcome or consequence of the situation. Wrong Words=Wrong Actions causes major INFRACTIONS. Refresh your memory and see what is the major struggle with people who are diagnosed with NLD (Nonverbal Learning Disability).

It just took one more thing after that TURKEY DINNER to take the E out of PEACE and made us EXPLODE.

Continue to build on PEACE.
