NYU Black Renaissance Noire Fall 2013 - Page 151

Fifth Attempt: Home is where family congregates but is often lost to financial institutions. Shelter is for those who do not define a home. Homeless is a result of senseless invasions and genocide. Sixth Attempt: Peace doesn’t exist. War is based on legal fictions. Purpose is undefined because we still wander the earth. Seventh Attempt: The Color of our blood is not discriminate. Race is categorized to settle apathy. Ethnicity creates segregation for regulation inside marked boxes. Identity is loss of soul and self. Not defined as crisis. Names are kept to ward off educated imbeciles. Eighth Attempt: Belief is the possibility in which many can coexist. Religion is the other scam. Spirituality can determine a course to the interior and exterior cosmos. Artifacts are remnants unearthed to remind us of our own existence.
