I don't care what they tell you.
I don't care what they think.
They don't know us. They don't influence us.
They only thing they do is make money off of us, and it is time for that to stop.

Straight Outta Compton - Movie Review
Straight outta Compton. There are no words to describe how powerful this movie really is. If you can get past the cursing, nudity and sexual exploitation, you will see a well made movie that has a life changing messages. The movie set in the 1990's actually mirrors today's life experiences. All I can say is that these men were ahead of their time.

Eight years ago, the United State of America created a feeling of pride in my spirit after electing Barack Obama as president of the United States Of America. I truly believed at that moment we had turned the corner on racism and bigotry; but now as we start the 2016 presidential election I see our country going backward.
