Negroid, Angloid, Asiatic and Blue.

Its not a racial thing. That's what I keep telling my self in order not to get angry about the Sean Bell trial. It does not matter if the cops who shot were white or black to me growing up cops have always been blue, and I'm sure people will shout out that not all cops are bad but then I will argue on what your definition of bad is.

Did you know that if you are attacked by a police K9 and in self defense while being bitten you snap its neck in order to save your leg you will serve more time in jail than if you rape a child. Why in the fuck is a dogs life more valuable than our future.

Above is just a small example of the method behind the madness that drives the streets deep rooted hatred against law enforcement. To serve and protect is their motto, but as a young black man living in the bronx I can count the times I have felt 100 percent safe and on none of those occasions was it because of police presence.

Sean Bell was just celebrating his bachelor party and was ambushed by a group of trigger happy pigs in plain clothes. Did they identify themselves as police? Hell No. I know this because they never do their pigs and pigs are known to be dirty, I can recall 3 instances in my life where I had a gun pulled on me by police not knowing they were police.

Many argue that a complaint should be filed and that cops can't do that. The people who argue this didn't come from the gutter of society, and for the record I have never been arrested only harassed enough to know that its not a black or white thing its a blue thing.

NYPD's job is two keep the poor and disadvantaged as far away from the rich and privileged that populate this great big city even if it means using fear and intimidation. They will always get off like Amadou Diallo 41 shots because they couldn't understand his accent., Abna Leuima raped of his dignity and manhood, Sean Bell for wanting to get married.

Police are above the law in this never ending struggle, when will we finally fight back?

The Good Music

Recently I’ve come across some of my older albums and popped them in, the effect they have on me is amazing. Reminds me of why I love music so much generic crap has filled the airwaves for so long I cant even bare to listen to the radio anymore. Music with substance does still exist you just have to do a crap load of digging to find it but when you find it is worth it. As a person who grew up in the south Bronx in a Dominican Household I learned to love music and grew up with the explosion of hip hop right on my front lawn, to see the stages it went through became painful at one point. What began as the voice of the streets and the struggle of my people has been so commercialized that their is not much of a voice left only an advertisement.

Rap music no longer makes us rise up or open our eyes anymore they make us want to buy expensive cars or hang out at strip clubs. Women are no longer viewed with respect or beautiful, their banging and jiggle with it. For the last 4 years after the bling bling era died down the brief "drop it like its hot era" that then transformed in the Krunk era which converted into the DIRTY DIRTY era replaced story tellers like Nas, and Slick Rick. I remember listening to great stories that made me laugh and cry, now I’m just puzzled after a series of dumb down lyrics that lack the creativity that made Hip Hop what it was in the past.

Unlike many I do not agree that hip hop is dead I take it more as it is on Life Support and Great producers like 9th Wonder,MadLib,PeteRock who refuse to pull the plug keep its heart beating. Hip Hop comes from a culture of Leaders and Trendsetters not followers. Commercialism can dumb down the masses to the point where content is no longer needed open your eyes and listen to what is being said if you cant relate and you gain nothing from it why listen?

Live and Let Live

Usually I find this an issue a lot of people avoid but should not. Foreign Policy, Education, The War, Iran, The Economy, so many issues at hand help keep people's minds off what's really important. What is that? you may ask I say Life. What ever happened to live and let live, in many ways I see how globalization can be a positive thing but, somethings got to give. Why not keep trading with other nations while moving towards the end poverty on our own soil.

Why not lift all the embargos that bring suffering to so many people. I believe that it should be up to the people to shape their own civilization. Imperialist take overs do not allow nations to learn from each others culture and history. If this ever happens then we can begin to care for our people and bring actual change for the better.

With elections on their way I find myself thinking of the current situation and with the last election I didn't vote I sometimes wonder was I wrong for not voting? Is my voice not heard? Politics is a dirty game, and our worst enemies can sometimes be right on your TV screen telling you the danger that is to come.

Reason is your most powerful tool against doom. Benjamin Franklin once said "It is the first responsibility of every citizen to question authority.". Fear subtracts from freedom if you allow it. Understand all the players in the game and conquer fear through understanding.

What did you say?

Maybe it's time I address this issue before any confusion builds up. I’m sure you noticed in my previous post titled "Scandals and Flandals" most of you probably asked yourselves, "Flandals?” Yes I know it is not a real word but sometimes I like to make words up, why you ask? Because its fun you should try to make up a word and use it in your daily vocabulary.

Include friends and cool family members, make it a "cool thing" you may like it. I guess the reason I make up words and use them at random in conversation, may be a way of reflecting on what I see from day to day with trends that come and go, ideas that come up, what the news is covering this week. Sometimes things appear so bizarre and out of this world and they hit you so randomly. On occasion I may type a random word or make a funny sound as my way of mimicing my everyday observations.

Scandals and Flandals.

The Term mind your own business is taken very lightly with all the Tabloids, News Coverage and even News Paper coverage of Celebrity Jargon we all know what’s going on with Britney Spears even if we don’t want to, or how Pricilla Presley got injected with Motor Oil even if we didn’t ask. I guess its common Knowledge and we can’t get enough of it.
It may be cool to say you don’t care what happened to Britney Spears or that theirs a new Reality show coming out staring the Slut who ruined what could of been one of the best Governors New York State ever saw, but the bottom line is we love that shit. Who doesn’t want to see that madam’s List of High end John's For the most part the people who are watching this are middle to lower class and we love to see the privileged few that are on TV fall and not just fall we want to see them fall hard.
Every night I watch TMZ and as much as it pisses me off at times how these people have no privacy for some weird reason I can’t get enough of it. The bigger they are the Harder they fall and if they fall and it’s streaming on YouTube Shieeet ill be their to watch.

on the Federal Reserve

If the Federal Reserve is not run by the Federal Government, then why is it called the "Federal" Reserve? Most people have no idea that the Federal Reserve is in fact owned and operated by private banks and individuals with a shit pot of money. We as a people hear the word federal and automatically think government when in fact this private bank was named this purposely to smoke screen what is really going on.

Why would it be called Federal Reserve if their is nothing Federal about it? Could be it be to purposely deceive people? When we hear the word federal we immediately think the government is involved? The Story goes back to the 1st Bank of America in 1863, in order to help finance the Civil War, a system of national banks was instituted by the National Currency Act. The banks each had the power to issue standardized national bank notes based on United States bonds held by the bank.

Today each Federal Reserve Bank is a separate corporation owned by commercial banks in its region. The stockholding commercial banks elect two thirds of each Bank's nine member board of directors. The remaining three directors are appointed by the Federal Reserve Board. The Federal Reserve Board regulates the Reserve Banks, but direct supervision and control of each Bank is left to its board of directors. The directors impliment by-laws regulating the manner Bank business, and appoint officers to implement and supervise daily Bank activities. These activities include collecting and clearing checks, making advances to private and commercial entities, holding reserves for member banks, discounting the notes of member banks, and buying and selling securities on the open market.

This sounds to me like a regular ass bank printing money and driving our economy into the shit hole for their own profit. Take a freeze frame to research some of this stuff; you may not be too happy with what you find.

What is FreeZe Frame?

FreeZe Frame is a place where the spinning stops. Just freeze and attempt to analyze the every day chaos that sorrounds us. So many things around us make us feel something inside sometimes a warm fuzzy feeling, even a feeling of anger or rage, sometimes we feel like we are not doing enough or like we don't know what to do. Well at freeze frame well just stop and think and if anything comes of it then its a success.
