THE UNSEEN FACE OF AMERICA
A PRISONER RANT TO RAVE.
In a loud, wild, incoherent, extravagant manner.
Identity of Blogger
Who am I, is what some of you are probably wondering. Well! I'm just two shakes away from being 40 with a life prison sentence. Although I don't look it. "I'm a street kid." That was fitted by so many away to be a statistic as a young Negro Chile in them Los Angeles streets... Which is a story for another time.
You wouldn't believe it, but my immediate family are wealthy. But I was never fitted for the wealth and them because my Albino patches. But, again, this is a story for another time.
What's this blog about.
This blog will have stories narrated to you from my past and present life experiences. The outcomes, the reasons why they occur. Some will be personally, emotionally troubling, to which I reach out to you for help. Not to seek your pity, though I have enough of that my own. But to be a conscious refection. A warning. To be a means of my sorrowful expression. To vent! In my excitedly ranting mind and raving manner. I wish to gain your empathy, your sympathy, your friendship, and social support.
It's my goal to take you deep into a 16-page Rant to Rave blog and have you crave more. But not all of my blogs will be a Rant to Rave blog. You'll have to pay attention to get that Rant to Rave. It's my desire to make you love them, desire them like a heroin junky who hasn't had a fix in 3 days. But I warn you. I only have a GED, meaning that I'm not technically all that educated. But I desire to be, so please be patient.
I invite your response but any negative comments. Negative comments coined as constructive criticism will be added to a rant and will not be replied to. Criticism is an educated way to tear someone down in a civilized manner. I go through enough with these squalid correctional officials. Articulate intellectual disagreement is always welcome.
If you're wondering if I'm up for a relationship, the answer is yes. All platonic relationships with females, I'm open to. I'm open to friendship. Please be careful on how you choose to respond. There are many mail restrictions.
I will always post my current address or let my viewer know when some details change. I'm currently in IMU so I can't post a picture of me now. But I will when I get the opportunity.
To life in fear
is to never live.
