ive gotta be me.
well come to find out…. im a woman abuser. never physically but mentally. i get one make her feel good and if she cant handle the impossible task of making me feel good i make sure she hears about it. come to find out no woman can make a man feel like a man these days. im still living old school where i need my breakfast hugs kisses and affection unconditionally. and all women live based off of conditions. i want a woman to jump in and take care of my kids, while being a wife to me starting day one. yes thats too much to put on someone but thats what i want. sure im always willing to give my all cook clean love protect and all but reality is… i move too fast. so im alone. also ive always put my perception of a love into a specific vessel meaning body type further distancing my chances of making a match. this writting was inspired by a woman unbelievably asking me a tall sexy hard working hard loving black man why was i single?….. in short because i aint shit. but im workin on it.

Lauryn Hill Ordered by the Court to Undergo “Counseling” Due to her “Conspiracy Theories”
The name of Lauryn Hill’s breakout album was The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill but it now appears that the powers that be would like her to record a new album called The Re-Education of Lauryn Hill. After appearing in court for tax evasion, Hill was sentenced to three months in jail PLUS she must attend “counseling” due to her “conspiracy theories”.
According to the IBTimes, Hill told the court: “I am a child of former slaves who had a system imposed on them. I had an economic system imposed on me.” Furthermore, Hill also believes that artists are being oppressed by (what the article calls) “a plot involving the military and media”. Because of these statements, Hill was ordered to undergo “counseling”, which is a way of saying that she is mentally ill and that she needs some sort of re-programming session regain “sanity”.
In 2012, Hill published a thoughtful letter describing the corruption, the oppression and the control of the music industry and her desire to escape it. In one part of the letter, Lauryn states
“It was this schism and the hypocrisy, violence and social cannibalism it enabled, that I wanted and needed to be freed from, not from art or music, but the suppression/repression and reduction of that art and music to a bottom line alone, without regard for anything else. Over-commercialization and its resulting restrictions and limitations can be very damaging and distorting to the inherent nature of the individual. I Love making art, I Love making music, these are as natural and necessary for me almost as breathing or talking. To be denied the right to pursue it according to my ability, as well as be properly acknowledged and compensated for it, in an attempt to control, is manipulation directed at my most basic rights! These forms of expression, along with others, effectively comprise my free speech! Defending, preserving, and protecting these rights are critically important, especially in a paradigm where veiled racism, sexism, ageism, nepotism, and deliberate economic control are still blatant realities!!!”
(See my article entitled Lauryn Hill’s Tumblr Letter on the Music Business for the full letter).
wow, way to fucking delegitimize and pathologize the experiences of a Black woman by abusing mental health resources and language to avoid the real shit she brings up.
Conspiracy theories because oppression is not real.That’s what oppressors would like for us to believe.
