TO THE DEPARTED, WE SPEAK OF WITH LOVE

By Michael – Louis Ingram, Editor

BASN / SOUL TREE RADIO – IN THE RAW!

 

 

THERE WILL NO SOUL TREE RADIO NEXT WEEK OUT OF RESPECT FOR THE MARTIN FAMILY AND THEIR LOSS. THERE WILL BE MORE TRAYVONS BECAUSE THERE WERE MANY TRAYVONS BEFORE THIS ONE…

 

 

I SPEAK FOR THE STAFF OF THE BLACK ATHLETE SPORTS NETWORK IN EXTENDING OUR SINCERE CONDOLENCES, AND I ASK ALL MY SOUL PATROLLERS, COVE CARAVAN FRIENDS, FB FAMILY, INNER CIRCLE AND ANYONE ELSE LISTENING TO OUR SHOWS TO PLEASE THINK ABOUT WHAT YOU BUY AND WHERE YOU SPEND YOUR MONEY…

 

MANY OF YOU MAY NOT KNOW THAT A SECOND SUCCESSFUL BOYCOTT WAS EXECUTED IN TALLAHASSEE, FLORIDA BY THE REV. C.K. STEELE AND HIS GROUP IN THE CIVIL RIGHTS ERA, WITH THE SAME POSITIVE RESULTS.

 

AS I WATCHED THE MAYOR OF SANFORD, FL AND HIS “MANAGER” ALIBI ABOUT HOW NO ONE SAW THE ‘REAL’ SANFORD, I’M ASKING – THAT NONE OF US SEE IT EITHER.

 

I WILL PERSONALLY BOYCOTT ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING HAVING TO DO WITH FLORIDA, AND IF I’M BY MYSELF WITH THIS, THAT’S COOL.

 

BUT I DO ASK THAT EVERYONE WHO SEES IT, FEELS IT AND KNOWS IT – WEAN YOURSELF FROM ANYTHING THAT WOULD PUT SO MUCH AS A KOPECK – INTO FLORIDA’S CHANGE PURSE.

 

LET THIS ALSO BE A REMINDER TO ALL OF US AS HUMAN BEINGS THAT WE WERE DEIGNED TO BE THAT STRAIN WHICH STAYS IDEALLY IN CONSTANT EVOLUTION – THAT WE TAKE HEART IN KNOWING AND ACCEPTING THE PREMISE THAT WHILE KARMA MAY BE LATE ON OCCASION, SHE NEVER MISSES AN APPOINTMENT…

 

I WON’T FRONT – LIVING WELL IS THE BEST REVENGE; BUT NOW IS THE TIME TO ENSURE THAT AS MANY OF US GET TO LIVE OUR LIVES AS WE SEE FIT – AND THAT WILL COME WITH A PRICE; BECAUSE IT WILL MEAN WE MUST CROSS OUR OWN RUBICONS OF FEAR AND SELF-DOUBT…

 

THERE’S NO SET WAY TO MOURN FOR ANYONE, BUT WE WILL PAY OUR RESPECTS TO THE MARTIN FAMILY AND ALL THOSE OTHERS THAT WEREN’T AFFORDED THE SEEMING LUXURY OF A DAY IN COURT…

 

PLEASE CONSIDER MY WORDS AND SEPARATELY OR TOGETHER, MAKE THIS BOYCOTT A LIVING, BREATHING THING…

 

MY GRANDMOTHER ALWAYS SAID,

“DON’T DO ANYTHING THAT WOULD MAKE THE ANCESTORS FEEL THAT THEY HAVE DIED IN VAIN.”

 

FOR NOW WE’LL PAY OUR RESPECTS AND CONSIDER OUR ACTIONS AS WE WILL FORMULATE AND PRESENT ON OUR NEXT SHOW ON JULY 20…

 

IN MY ANCESTRAL TONGUE WE SAY:

t’ull”locc” t”ecc” saaaaaaaaa”ooofffa”

(two – lock – tec – sa – oh – fa)

which means “to the departed, we speak of with the sincerest respect – and love”

FROM THE ASHES OF DISCORD, WE WILL EMERGE ANEW…THANK YOU.
