This is America

Standard

This is America where not everyone you meet will like you. Where it is home to many different races like black, latino, Asian and so on Where fights and murder always occur like nothing new.
Over rumors, relationships and stress.
This is America.

Where you see drug abusers on the streets begging for change to help their bad habit instead of fixing their life.
Clothes filled with holes, shoes run down to the sole.
“Please spare some change” they plead to get sympathy

Females getting pregnant as early as 13, no father figure, and mothers can’t control half of them. Men selling weed on a corner doing their 9-5 duties as a drug dealer.

Dressed in hoodies, baggy clothes and hats creating the stereotype that all black men are dangerous.
Hearing the usual “ Do something positive my brother” from the elderly who sees our young generation worsen every day.

This is also America
Where you see…

The Turning Point..

Standard

I was 16 years old when I first smoked Marijuana.  I was always one of those kids in High School who ended up with the Cool kids because of the way i Dressed. George Westinghouse High school I’m downtown Brooklyn was filled with Caribbean kids but the others were the “Hood” Kids that grew up in the projects, always fighting or getting kicked out by teachers in the classroom.

I was always drawn to that people liked the facts that i was so reserved and quiet so if i saw anything i wouldn’t say anything. One day in 11th grade math i went to the bathroom to wash my face after a long day. As i opened the door, a strong scent of Weed filled my nose but i was jus trying to hurry up n do what i came to do and be out

“You Smoke Bro”? An upperclassman…

The 2017 Social Media

Standard

Why is it that every social media website or app today just like Snapchat who has been here for years. I was a user before snapchat had all their fancy updates and in my opinion it’s gotten more and more popular over the years but Now Instagram , Whatsapp , and Facebook gave it a run for its money. Whatsapp statuses turn imto stories, Facebook messenger started with story snaps and now you can either post a snap story or a snap status. I was a little impressed with Instagram and snapchat being similar because they were both more for pictures anyway but Instagram also gave Facebook a run for their money with there Live video but the only thing is that Live videos go away on Instagram after a while. Which Social Media will be the best for this year? Lol we shall wait and see

The Wicked Generation.

Standard

BourneReady

This picture i came across on social media and i have many thoughts. Whatever happened to helping our own people? The black generation has been a target over many years but we dont even treat our own people with love and kindness lately. This generation of people we are growing up are raised to be selfish and you cant always blame the parents but its what theyre seeing. Instead of helping we now feel the need to broadcast everything we do to Snapchat, facebook and Instagram instead of doing the right thing… HELP!!

The Island of the Happiest People in the Caribbean 🇹🇹

Standard

BourneReady

How Could my own culture get corrupted day by day with all the killings, Violence, Gangs and Rape. Trinidadians are always going to be known as the happiest people in the caribbean but what is it thats making everyone turn bad? Is it the overpopulation of other cultures flying in and changing our Trinidad that we know? Is it the people who try to come and take over our jobs? Is it the foreigners who give trouble in there country and go to Trinidad to make more trouble? Can poverty or the government be the blame as well.No island is always sunny beaches , Carnival, and music relaxation, but our Motto says as the flag was raised for our Independence we fought for in August 1952 “Together we Aspire, Together we achieve” . As i turn on the online radio in Brooklyn everyday to hear another innocent person dead…

VIEW GALLERYThey say life imitates art, but this village in Indonesia took it one step further, turning daily life into art itself. Kampung Pelangi was pretty unassuming, at least at a glance. While it had its own charm for many years, it wasn’t exactly a hotspot for travelers. However, all that changed when the local government invested…
