SPOKEN WORD / Prana : Breath, A Movement Through Rasas

From the mouths of babes… I do quite a bit of writing, but it never occurred to me to compare similarities between the COVID-19 global pandemic and the protests currently lighting up the countryside. Whether it’s coronavirus or police kneeling on someone’s neck… they both attack the fundamental right to breathe. This profound expression was recently summed up in a choreography entitled “Prana :  Breath”. My daughter Asha, her friend Rekha and a cadre of mega-talented associates created this impressive production.

A most poignant spoken word verse accompanied the dance, punctuating the final minutes…
I am immeasurably honored that they asked me to voice it.

In this modern age of free expression it may seem like an oddity, but the girls faced quite a bit of pushback from the traditional community for creating this. It mixes a counter-culture aesthetic with new age soul and classical, Indian dance (both are students of Hema and Krithika Rajagopalan). I am immensely proud of the entire crew. This is something that definitely flies in the face of convention, but it’s a bold statement, made during a time when many people are either too angry, or too afraid to communicate effectively.

Anarchy in the Neighborhood

In the aftermath of these latest, horrific riots… you can see that the supply chain in certain areas is completely broken. Yet the current “cause celebre” is a bail fund.
Celebrity money is not going to get elderly prescriptions delivered. It’s not going to procure food or check on those who may be left destitute. Instead, people who fked up the Black neighborhoods are being released.
You had better believe first among them will be the paid, White saboteurs who TRICKED so many of US into lighting our own house on fire.
As far as the rest of Black Lives Mattering to anyone, let’s find out if big box retail returns…. or will it be another few decades of eating Top Ramen from the Arab-owned liquor stores.

My guess: They will GENTRIFY the area and sweep all the strong, Black revolutionaries right off of Grandma-ma’s couch… into the furthest suburb they can find; but Farrakhan and Dick Gregory told you that 40 years ago. That’s back when leadership from other communities had you playing “midnight basketball”. I digress…
Bail is also being jacked up in order to deplete the Bail Fund but don’t worry HEDGE funds are helping to cover extraneous costs. There’s also very little accountability for rogue members of law enforcement so far… with the exception of the original four horsemen of Minneapolis.

The FBI, no doubt hoping to build more cases against “Black Identity Terrorists”, put out a call for evidence of people inciting violence during the protest. They were bombarded with images of 1st Amendment violations, on the behalf of The State.

I’m glad people want to fight racism. The initiative is admirable. You just don’t have a clue of what you’re up against…. and the same people who leave us in THIS STATE OF BEING will tell you to ignore real Black Leaders who also demand EXCELLENCE from you, instead of teaching you to rely on (well-meaning) outsiders.

What’s for dinner Grandma-ma?
It’s really going to kill you in ten years when you realize the stores could be up and running in a month, no matter what happened… but they left it closed to clear the area faster.

False Flag Revolution – Trust None of Dem

So what would be the incentive to PAY Black people to loot stores, throw bricks and cause mayhem?
This is because you need this system to fall, and you need scapegoats in order to make it happen.

Otherwise the “News” will never be able to report that “Black Lives Matter” has been looting the town.
If you can scare White AmeriKKKa into believing this, then they will BEG you to release the military upon the population. Also… the infrastructure is now in place for everyone to “work from home”. The savvy hedge fund investor can now forecast which industries will tumble, because they helped it to happen.

One dimensional thinkers just root for One team! That makes it easy for everyone to take advantage of you. Don’t trust any of them. Keep your eye on the ball.

Will the REAL Protester Please Stand UP???

:::::: ANTIFA :::::: .
Antifa is full of loose cannon mfkkaz who think they’re “helping” or just want to break things because many of them are entitled, angry little turds…… That’s the volunteer coefficient 🤣🤣🤣 but that’s an ideology (Anti-Fascist) not an organization. .
.
::::::: NOT ANTIFA ::::::: A more sinister agenda is at play when you see these grown azz men in work boots starting bonfires. If they are wearing bulletproof vests, you already know who they are… ROGUE Officers…. because there are plenty of real officers showing love, regardless of what any of you want to say.

CROOKED police are the devil, and our societal laziness allowed those devils to move even higher, into positions of authority. Judges, District Attorney, Senator, etc. Now public policy is against us.

Also look out for the following:
Protestors being bussed in.
Pallets of bricks left for rioters to throw.
Milk and water supplies lined up by the tree, for when they get tear gassed.
Professionally printed “riot signs”. Who goes to FedEx the night before a riot?? 🤣

Hedge funds use paid provocateurs to manipulate the economy by fomenting chaos. The fires burn and the dollar value fluctuates. They trade on that.

White supremacists are another issue altogether. They think the Boston Tea Party (essentially a “false flag operation”) was a patriotic act…. and this is how they have operated ever since. They do shit, and blame other people for it.

The REAL PROBLEM: Unlike most GAMES with two opposing sides, there are several teams on the field at once. So it’s hard to see WHO is doing WHAT.

This is my international art page,,, but I’m taking a break to discuss the politics of Babylon, where I live.
We’ll be back to the music / etc. soon

Warning: The George Floyd “Rioters” Are Not Black Enough

Let’s clear up a few more things…
After the initial windows have been broken, (usually by White saboteurs) the news crews start the tape rolling, because they KNOW FULL WELL a significant group of rowdy, Black faces will join in the melee.

This is where it gets confusing for White AmeriKKKa, because all they see is skin color:
People who throw the bricks that have been placed at the scene, take the opportunity to steal, or choose to channel their anger into destruction may have their legitimate reasons… but they are all part of the criminal element.

That is a very small segment of the Black community 🤷🏾‍♂️ Sorry. I know you want to say things like our RAGE is justified or we have a right to do whatever, but you are helping the “powers that be” to once again “scapegoat the colored folk”. We already know… tomorrow’s DINNER is coming from Target, or whatever store is being looted. We have already seen authorities reach back in time using CCTV to charge people for vandalism. So for the most part… THAT AIN’T US. Most of us who protested took our families and had the kids home in bed by 9pm.

The real story goes like this:
White Supremacists, dating back to the days of Reconstruction, have been hell bent on destroying the Black community.
They assumed public office and made our lives a living HELL; flooding the communities with drugs and guns, de-industrializing the areas, closing the schools and using the police to brutalize us.

Yes we have rioted. Some of us have looted… but the OVERWHELMING MAJORITY of us are more concerned with putting food on the table and getting educated.

The Black Panthers were known for punishing drug dealers and making them close up shop. Authorities responded by killing or jailing Panther leadership. Look up the name “Dhoruba” when you get a chance.

Right now a narrative is being crafted right before your eyes, of Black Rage shutting down The System, but truly….. your system is already forfeit. It started with NAFTA.
You hateful, bigoted peckerwoods, who blamed “minorities” for all your problems are now going to find out that we were just the test subjects for a much greater game that’s being played, and TRUST ME..

Riots in America: Donald Trump Blames…… Antifa???”

The music and jokes have to stop for a while… Let clear up a few things.
Donald Trump just accused ANTIFA of rioting, along with the few Black faces caught up in the mix, to press a narrative that “Blacks are destroying their own neighborhoods”. First of all, only our criminal element will do that; plus ANTIFA: for all their heavy handed tactics, are not the ones starting riots in the Black communities. The culprits are as follows:

1) ROGUE members of law enforcement, and White Supremacists.
Why? Because they want to contain the riots to the “redlined” districts.

When you see protestors wearing utility boots and CALMLY breaking windows or throwing bricks, that’s how you know. Rioters are frenzied, not calm.

2) Hired Gun Saboteurs
Why? There are hedge funds who trade international currency. Bad news (like riots) drops the value of any country’s “dollar”. They hold “short” positions and profit from the fall.

When you see busloads of protestors who are not local to a given region, that’s how you know. Professionally printed signs are another clue.

Know The Difference:
I don’t always agree with Antifa or Anonymous. Sometimes they act without proper planning. They can also become bullies… but they are not trashing the hood. THEY are the dearly beloved Nazi Punchers ❤

Why I’ll NEVER Kneel

This is why I NEVER kneel…..
Society has you thinking that silent protest at sporting events will keep them from kneeling on your neck. Antiquated daishiki and raised fists take the place of unity and vigilance.
An evil so pervasive, a hatred so thorough that it spills beyond borders infecting, even it’s intended recipients.
WE hate US… and therefore cannot defend our existence. The internal struggle against our own is never mentioned by anyone because that is what keeps us weak.

Depending on the whims of their good nature, or lack thereof

All the while…
Economic, Nutritious, Educational
SABOTAGE tears at our self image

Guns we don’t manufacture, Narcotics we don’t grow
Gold from our continent, fashioned into the image of their deity.
Defines our legacy.

And you want me to kneel down and fight? I and I stand firm. A fist in the air is diplomacy.
A foot to the ass…. is the policy.

When They Say “You Shouldn’t Argue With Science”…

No one should argue with Science…

Yet somehow:
Capitalism is quite adept at doing that very thing. But that’s just “INDUSTRY”.

Xenophobia can’t seem to keep it’s big mouth shut either. In that case it’s “EUGENICS”.

The worst part about it is, when all that happens, people still call it “Science”. 😊👍🏾

Science has given us cures, fixes, protection, shelter, vaccines, energy, and the promise to enhance life on a worldwide scale. You’ll know it’s science when it benefits most people.

The two culprits I have listed above pervert this life-affirming process in every way imaginable; and only a complacent, mind-controlled robot would argue in favor of them.

The closest you can ever get to the TRUTH is when you learn to consider someone’s motivations.

In the large scale corruption of Science:
If capitalism or xenophobia don’t fit the bill, the next place to look is “VANITY”.

Vanity is the thought process that had the sun revolving around the Earth, even though Science knew full well that it did not. Ask Copernicus about that one.

Damn…. It seems like you CAN “argue with Science” after all. So that’s not exactly a valid premise for trying to deny someone’s free will.

Call that what it is also…. it’s COWARDICE.
Regardless of how you choose to express yourself at the ballot box, there are people on both sides of the argument making major changes to public policy.

Rather than confront those objectives it’s, obviously, much easier to beat up on your friends.
