I should have had a dog in the Trayvon Martin/Zimmerman debacle. For all and sundry I am a black man and in one way or the other affected by what seemed to be injustices meted against us from slavery till now.
I should have been incensed as I have always been, and dedicate this piece if not any other, to the cloud of dust, the revolting dust that has been built up by the decision of the now infamous jury.
But no. This piece is not dedicated to this dust. All dusts will die down and forgotten as I have seen over these years I have been conscious. Conscious of man’s inhumanity to man, and conscious that fights and quarrels only lead to more mayhem and anarchy. God will take care of evil men and injustice. Christopher Darden in his book after the OJ trial says “They will get theirs at the end”. And I do believe that vengeance is God’s and he will repay. In the meantime “Many more will have to suffer many more will have to die”- Bob Marley.
Suffice it to say this is one cockroach that will not get caught in this fowl yard.
I have chosen my battle or my battle has chosen me and that is the fight for better health and particular for prostate health. The little district that I hailed from in Jamaica has seen the death of three men from prostate cancer, since I have been conscious of this debilitating disease. The men died almost back to back. Word is that two more are suffering and may have passed the point of no return. In a little district of a bout five hundred people where everyone knows each other by name. These were young men when I was a boy and I have maintained the real reasons men die today from prostate cancer is because of poisons in their foods which Jamaican men have come to subject themselves to (See REAL REASONS WE DIE, of a previous blog).
Prostate cancer continues to reap havoc in the male population particular black males. NO ONE SEEMS TO CARE ABOUT THIS. No civil rights leader or activist have stretched out their neck nor puff up their chest to say SOMETHING IS KILLING BLACK MEN! This issue also may not be resolved until the return of Jehovah’s King and earth’s rightful ruler, and until he makes his enemies his footstool.
I know that I as a voice crying in the wilderness will not change the world, but if I can help another man to avoid the wicked illness of prostate cancer that is what I am about.
So in my own little way I continue to blow the whistle on this sinister sickness of man.
I was appalled to say the least when Anderson cooper (The 360 guy of CNN) brought to fore the atrocity committed by this cancer society that siphon off the donated funds for their own lascivious lifestyle. Click link to see: (Anderson Cooper and donation thieves)
As Anderson Cooper “says no one seems to be going after them”. So these thieves are allowed to run off with their long bags of loot from the willing donators, and robbing needed funds for research and treatment of the unfortunates, and stricken.
So this is my fight,.. The dust may never go away because there is actually no such dust kicked up by dancing camels of a desert. As a matter of fact camels don’t dance. Compared to pigs who allegedly do for the rains to fall (At least so is the saying in Jamaica) maybe the camels know it is futile to put out the effort in such a desert condition.
I guess my point is that you shouldn’t get bludgeoned in a war that you cannot win. It might be more prudent to snipe your target from a distance retreat and come back again. That is indeed what I have been doing at least once a month through this blog to help bring awareness to this cause. Indeed! This is MY DOG IN THE FIGHT.
What do you think my reader? Do you want to run out there with placards and signs that will only get you arrested and to wait until the dust die down? Or worse get killed or shot by law enforcement in a fight that you cant win? OR WOULD YOU HELP ME FIGHT PROSTATE CANCER BY SHARING THIS. Doings so may educate another brother to take his health in serious hands to preserve his life.
