Hello Incredible People of Blackplanet,
Thank you, to the many of you who inspire me everyday. In 1998, I was fortunate enough to take off a full year of my life to surf the Internet. Everyday of that year I spent time looking at you, what you are all about, what you like, what you dislike, what inspires you. And, I was astonished at the true talent and creativity I have seen here amongst us here at the BP. I am convinced that, we are the most creative and talented people on the planet.
When the rest of the world finally realizes that we can do more than sports, music and dance; we will be empowered as never before. When we united our efforts, minds and finances; The feeling they get in their stomachs, when they are facing five brothers untied with a basketball, will be a louder wake-up call as we unit with our briefcases, finances, businesses and our minds.
As a youngster, I grew up around, mostly Caucasians (whites). My father was one of the first black Physics Majors to graduate from the University of Illinois; He moved my entire family into a small community of scientist that designed Neutron Bombs for the government.
As far back as I can remember, I was nicknamed, Nigga Knox . Treated as a second-class person, if even that. I love everyone on a one-on-one basis, black, white or other. But, I guess they never would have thought that the kid they were teasing (me), would be the same guy they would make wealthy & rich entertaining their kids with expensive sports videogames. I guess life really does have its poetic justices.
So many times, I have had ideas and creations that were lost to the world. Only to see them expedited, promoted, published and distributed by the hands of another. Its not a black/white thing, I was once told, He who has the Gold makes the Rules. Unfortunately, the rules aren t always in our favor. I ve been discriminated against, harassed by the police, thrown to the ground and thrown in jail over fabricated B.S. The system doesn t always work in our favor, either. We could talk about in-justices in the system all day, and all night. Unfortunately, many of us have experienced these things first-hand.
A CHALLENGE FOR YOU...

If you are standing, I challenge you to walk (straight).

If you have it all... I challenge you to teach and share with others.
If you teach, I challenge you to never stop learning.
If you do share of yourself with others, may God always bless you...
Most of All, If you have no faith, I challenge you to believe.
Believe in God Believe in Yourself
When you wake-up... Before you put on your shoes, socks, shirt, pants or dress. Put on the proper attire for success...
The one thing that will compliment whatever you are wearing expensive or cheap...
The one thing that people will see and remember you by....
The one thing that will determine how people treat you all day long...
If you don t know what this is?
Drop me a note. (I ll tell you!)
MY SILENT PRAYER
"I pray, because only you can preserve me."
"I was lost, but now I m found."
"Give me the will, strength and desire, to fight another day for you!"
"Forgive me for any pain I ve inflicted upon my brother."
"Because as your servant, I am my brother s keeper."
"Drench me with your love that I may be a blessing to all."
"Bless me abundantly, that I help others and do your will."
-"Praise be to God! Forever. -Amen-"
