I used to sell CD’s on the street and I was never killed. This goes out to all my fellow light-skinned POC's and poor white people
“$5-10.00 per Disc- Hip Hop , Salsa, You name it, we got it,” At the corner of Vine and Melrose, Hollywood and Vine and Pico and Wilshire in LA, I would scream out my best CD deal of the day. I was 11 years old when i started selling CD’s. My best location was in front of the 7-11 downtown, until the poLice came and arrested me for soliciting without a license. For years me and my mama sold CD’s, art and all kinds of other things considered “illegal” on the street. We never had a permit or license to vend, sell or solicit.
On May 23, 2014, Nate Greer, dedicated husband and father, died at the hands of the Hayward Police Department during a routine DUI traffic stop.

About a year and a half ago I lost the best healthcare provider I ever had in my life [The creator notwithstanding!]
She not only provided me with everything necessary that she could for my well being , she actually listened to me and gave me feed back if I asked for it.
She always formed her advise like a suggestion and asked me if would be willing to try something without making demands.
I always felt loved and cared for under her care.
Boy have things changed!
Recently while Walking on Division St. in San Francisco with laundry and groceries by a tent city, I was approached by a young black female news reporter from one of the local mainstream news station affiliates. She was accompanied by another gentleman of African descent and a camera man of Asian descent.
She excitedly asked me as if she heard good news that I should also be excited about “Are you moving?"
To which I replied, am I moving?
Leonard Peltier born on september 12, 1944 In North Dakota, U.S. He was part of the American Indian Movement (AIM). Not only was he part of the AIM, but he was a leader. Leonard was arrested in 1977. He was blamed for “murdering two FBI agents”; witnesses say Leonard did not shoot them. But more than 60 members of the American Indian Movement were murdered. The reason why this conflict started was because of a 1975 argument about the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. In the court three teenaged native witnesses testified against Leonard.
