drecole Recently saw #straightouttacompton which I loved for the music and the storytelling-particularly scenes of police harassment, leading to #nwa writing #fuckthepolice in response to their first hand experiences and the completely dehumanizing incident of #rodneyking leading into the #lariots

Most people don't see the angry side of me, because I practice love and peace. But, I'm a revolutionary at heart dedicated to and motivated by truth, morality, justice and fairness. Today there is sadly still discrimination and abuse of power especially by law enforcement. I, like many people feel frustrated & overwhelmed by all the world's chaos, but I must cope and act someway. Can't be stuck with these feelings, must release. So it is through my dancing, music and words that my anger towards systematic oppression (racial, financial, sexual, etc) pours out with intention to make a difference by contributing to the voice of the people. We are #allone. I care to make meaningful #ART not just be entertaining, but to express, connect and form dialogue around important issues. The source of my creative energy runs deep. Financial institutions are set up to hurt us, to make the cost of living a struggle for the 99% and shun our right to quality #education. But we are the majority and our #consciousness is expanding. We are most powerful far beyond the realities we face in 'civilized' capitalist society.

Also, may those seeking refuge from Africa & the Middle East find safety and be greeted with help, food and water by the European Union.
