Sportsmanlike Conduct of the Day: A short while ago, LeBron James tweeted this photo of him and his Miami Heat teammates wearing hoodies in solidarity with Trayvon Martin’s family and friends.
According to the Palm Beach Post’s Heat Zone, James is the one who organized the photo and made it happen.
Earlier today, Dwyane Wade also tweeted a photo of himself in a hoodie along with the hashtag #trayvonmartin.

i may dislike this team, but i’m impressed with this statement



It’s no secret that I’m a Lebron-hater and that I adamantly cheer against the Miami Heat, but mad props to them for doing this and hopefully raising more awareness about Trayvon Martin.

Searching for answers…

Considering what happened with Troy Davis tonight (google it if you don’t know), a lot of people, including myself, understandably have no faith in our nation’s courts. I’m not one to give up so easily, but when it comes to the criminal (in)justice system as it stands right now, I’ve lost faith a long time ago.

I don’t know if it’s answers I’m searching for or if I’m just wandering aimlessly, but I decided to go through my bookshelf tonight and stumbled across The Rose that Grew from Concrete, a collection of poems that 2Pac wrote between 1989-91. Even though these poems were written 20+ years ago, a lot of them still ring true today. There were two in particular that stood out for me:

HOW CAN WE BE FREE
Sometimes I wonder about this race
Because we must be blind as hell
2 think we live in equality
While Nelson Mandela rots in a jail cell
Where the shores of Howard Beach
Are full of Afrikan corpses
And those that do live 2 be 18
Bumrush 2 join the Armed Forces
This so called “Home of the Brave”
Why isn’t anybody Backing us up!
When they c these crooked ass Redneck cops
constantly Jacking us up
Now I bet some punk will say I’m racist
I can tell by the way you smile at me
Then I remember George Jackson, Huey Newton
And Geronimo…2 hell with Lady Liberty


AND 2MORROW
Today is filled with anger
Fueled with hidden hate
Scared of being outcast
Afraid of common fate
Today is built on tragedies
Which no one wants 2 face
Nightmares 2 humanities
and morally disgraced
Tonight is filled with rage
Violence in the air
Children bred with ruthlessness
Because no one at home cares
Tonight I lay my head down
But the pressure never stops
Gnawing at my sanity
Content when I am dropped
But 2morrow I c change
A chance 2 build anew
Built on spirit, intent of heart
and ideals based on truth
And 2morrow I wake with a second wind
And strong because of pride
2 know I fought with all my heart 2 keep my dream alive
