Us vs Them: Consistency – by Confucius Jones
Written by Confucius Jones
I don’t know where to begin. I don’t know if I should apologize or not. I don’t know if I should say some deep shit to make you realize how much I missed you all. I truly don’t know what to say at this point. I’m just happy to be back man. It’s been a long time, I shouldn’t have left you.
Things have changed since the last time we spoke. Obama has become more ambitious in the face of devastating losses in the House and Senate. Racial tension hasn’t been curbed since the verdict in Ferguson. More terrorist attacks have happened across the globe. The world is still fucked up basically.
I try to find my place in this world but that’s easier said than done. I know my voice but finding out where it fits in this society is the hard part. I know what I want to say just not how to say it. I’ve spent many a nights trying to answer that question. I’m not happy with the world my children will have to grow up in so its my mission to maybe change that for not just them, but for all the children growing up in this cold world.
From here on out you will hear from me every week. Monday to be exact. And I’m not coming alone. While it will only be my voice in this column I will be starting a podcast that will début every other Monday with three other host. I can’t say all I want to say in these articles but I can allow the world to see that the hip-hop generation isn’t a bunch of dumb coons who don’t care about the world around them. It’s deeper than rap or CNN mothafuckas. I don’t intend to take shit lightly like before and I damn sure won’t bite my tongue. So all I ask is that you please tune into my podcast and read my articles on this great website because I would greatly appreciate it. We would greatly appreciate it. So until next time….
