Wal-Mart worker dies during Black Friday event
Associated Press Writer

NEW YORK (AP) -- Police say a Wal-Mart worker has died after being trampled by a throng of unruly shoppers shortly after the Long Island store opened Friday.

Nassau County police say the 34-year-old worker was taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead at about 6 a.m., an hour after the store opened. Police also say a 28-year-old pregnant woman was taken to a hospital for observation.

Wal-Mart Stores Inc., in Bentonville, Ark., would not confirm the reports of a stampede during the day-after-Thanksgiving bargain hunting, but said a "medical emergency" caused them to close the store.

First Family!...Salute

"It's been a long time, I shouldn't have left you
Without a strong rhyme to step to
Think of how many weak shows you slept through
Time's up, I'm sorry I kept you"
- Eric B. & Rakim

Greetings, it indeed has been a long time. Many of us have been caught up in the MOMENT as well as life itself. Anyway, I missed President Elect Obama's interview on 60 Minutes this past Sunday and was quite disappointed that I did, especially because I believe in him and his ideas, voted for him and had to listen all day to some that didn't vote (but they rocked the T's) talk about it. Thankfully, we have technology such as the internet and 60 Minutes has the interview on their website. I've re-posted the interview here as a courtesy (no telling how long they'll keep it up) in the full version and broken up into segments. Enjoy and share with others. Peace.

And the Winner is ...

"So just get your boys and bring the noise and just swing it
And party people in the house, sing it"
- Chubb Rock

Praise and Glory to the Most High. To my black and brown brothers and sisters, we should all be so proud of President Obama and ourselves as well. Also, let's acknowledge that it wasn't just-us, justice..but not just-us, so I wanna give props and much respect to those of a different persuasion that went out and did the right thing (McCain supporters are already protesting that these voters were high off a Spike Lee joint and their votes shouldn't count). Let us rejoice in this moment as it has been a long time coming. Remember those who fought for freedom first (and continously), civil rights second (and continously), let us remember those who succeeded in providing us with the right to vote. Going down the roll call list, every first black councilman and woman, every first black mayor, governor, Shirley Chisholm, Jesse Jackson, Colin Powell, Dr. Condoleeza Rice, even Alan Keys and many, many others who were either out front or playing the back. It is time for us to step up and move forward, striking while the iron is hot.
We must also be prepared for the backlash. When the pendulum swings one way it eventually swings in favor of its polar opposite. While it has swung away from the oppression and discrimination that has restricted us before it also swung non-blacks to support and vote for Obama which means that it will visit the area where his non-supporters will express their disgust about the results. We need to be prepared, strong and vigilant. Let us not gloat as if this is the end of our journey as a people or country, but recognize that it is merely the beginning.

Anti-Nigga Machine

"I've seen some blind, some deaf, some dumb
Whichever one choose to follow the other one
Loses to the mass confusion caused by fast illusion
Showin 'n provin, it's not just a phrase that we usin'
It's the way of life when you keep it moving"


Be Aware!!!

NIGGAS!!!, is a beautiful thing

"God is the author of color. Why are you going crazy, because you see color in the flowers, color in the rocks, color in the earth, color everywhere you look and color in the human family, and now we can accept the differences in rocks and stones in earth, but we cannot accept the differences of color and characteristics in one another? That says that the human being is sick."
- The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan

We're just a few days away people. Reminder to all those people rocking the Obama shirts, bumper stickers and buttons...if you don't vote it doesn't mean but one thing and that one thing is...
