The Book of Culture (Chapter 10)

Hello America,


First of all, Happy Mother's Day to all of the mothers here and gone, locked up, at work, at home, at church, on these streets....


y'all rock the cradle......which keeps this world turning thank you.


I had a very intelligent and delightful conversation on my @pendecadentdiva account check it out, the uncensored, uncut, no holds barred version.


so I am going to formally say thank you, @rolandsmartin you a busy brother, a busy brother indeed for lending a couple of moments of your time and words.


and to @DetroitDollBaby for bringing a different perspective and showing the world that when American women disagree, at least in Dallas and Detroit, we keep it with class and respect.  We D-town's....obligated to get down.


I learn on @tmims50 because it is censored, nothing personal, just straight politics in various forms......


So thank you @ConservativeWeb for schooling me this morning, it's a beautiful thing....people just from all over, so making me love and dig both of my timeless.  its humbling.  check them out.


facebook, i try to keep to my family and friends on a personal level for the most part.


No politics today, No stories, No addresses.  Just a talk with God, a talk with you and I got some teacakes to bake.  Miss you, Glorious Huntley, Love you, Lucy H. Mims.  Mama is Mama through it  all...#truth.


Let's go.


God  meets me this morning......He knows my routine.  I am up full of energy.  It's flowing.  It's rolling #roscoe on wocka's track......rolling.  It's just that time and when you know it's that time, when you know that those spotlights you have been chasing are just around that corner, you get a little amped......Natural.

But when you 36, a felon, and always almost a couple of more sentences from a warrant, you look forward to these talks......

"Hey Tiffani................"


"What's up?"


God looks at me, he feels the energy, but he is seeing my body language.........


"Those grey hairs trying to catch up with you, huh?"


"Grit........man, they trying, they trying........I am sorry, man, I just got a lot on my mind.  Words got power......I got words.......  you feel me?  I got words for days, but even I can't just be shooting wildly no more.  This ain't the Wild Wild West..........."


"You sure about that?  B/c I heard it's showdown in d-town in a couple of hours.........  I know you wasn't on the court, but this basketball series sure feels like it represents something more, you sure didn't have nothing to do with that, Tiffani?"


"I ain't going to lie to you, God..........."


"that's it?"


"That's it......not out of disrespect, but out of the fact that whose to say what's shooting wildly is really shooting accurately just everybody can't see what uniforms some of us wear when all the rest of the roles come off........ Maybe I can see what they can't, not because of my strength but b/c of lessons that I learned from days at Good Street b/c in the end, this your will, this your way.  Not mine........"


"True.................." God looks around Dallas.  He is concerned and knows Tiffani is too that suspicious packages where planted at the train station nearest to #43.........and incident after incident continues to occur there.....  Grown men fighting for basketballs, and glory, and grown women fighting for babies, families and countries, it seems one is more than important than the other.........


Only on the outside, only to those who can't see and trust it's ugly, it ain't meant to be seen.....no lights for this show.


"I sent you that reminder this morning" as God continues " to remind you that it ain't about you, Tiffani......  It should be to an extent b/c you have been done wrong, I admit it, I did it.  I feel you, not going to fault you for flexing, jabbing a little bit to show you grown but we can't have a whole bunch of folk running around looking like Mosley.  You are right, these games, these series, these men serve to show our cultural truths and baby, it's a battle today.  It's a battle today.  


So I give you this, Tiffani.  One subject, ONE.  no personal.  no political.  You got fifteen minutes and you need to get back to work as we both know you have other things to do.  You already need to be reading about these Chinese ghost stories like two hours ago. I'm gonna get your assistants, sooner than later....... 


But you owe me and I'm cashing in..........


How do you say it, Tiffani?


You can go......Class dismissed......."


Touche', Touche' indeed.  What can I say?  nothing......can't do nothing but respect it.


So I chose nba playoffs and you can use your personal judgment to draw lessons from it,  I am depending that you do......


When I looked at the Boston Celtics last night, I looked at a team with purpose..........

With poise, with the kind of poise that our military shows everyday, standing tall in the midst of battle.

I notice KG's what 32/14 stats........He found his Daddy and nobody on that court could do anything it.  I apologize for the font........I'll tell you at the end why God came this morning and why I gave in to his request.

We saw Rondo's elbow explode.  Let you see how long his arms are for real.........  We saw his spirit soar...

We saw Paul let a beast out in him, that we miss..........

We saw West, show boston baby, I gotcha........I gotcha.....

We saw Baby, like I gotta get it.

We saw Green stand up, alright baby boy celtic, allright.......let 'em know daddy don't need an age, daddy is daddy b/e he delivers......your team noticed.

And we saw the return of the daddy of them all, Shaq Daddy..........

So what he was rusty, but he played.  He moved, tried to work out a little jump shot or two.  He stood the middle.  He did what daddy's do.  Enough to get the job done.

And in the end, that's all that matters.

There is a lot on the line today.  No need to run from it.......No need to hide or be scared of it.

It is what it is.........

Dallas, it's time to get our John Boehner on, and so be it.

When Obama talks about big oil and no I am not talking politics, NBA basketball, Dallas is a town.........that has a team that is supported by ticket purchasers.......so when Obama talks about bad big oil, I think of the hard working people of Exxon Mobil that serve as my neighbors, my fellow citizens.......My brothers and sisters of Dallas......

Everyone has to have an enemy.........

Well, Dallas.  I ain't going to lie to God, and I ain't going to lie to you.

You got a whole nation, and a lot of people all across the world that are hoping and praying that you don't do what you need to do today.

It's that serious.  There are demographics about Los Angeles and Dallas that I am not going to get into but the permeate more than stats or the box score.

I love Brian McKnight, Delmar loves Brian McKnight and he has this inspriational song talking about I want to be ready when the chariot comes.........

Now Brian is talking about his soul,

but actually I am too.

The chariot that rides champions  made Paul's spirit yell..........I'm still here, I'm still strong #antwonefisher.....

The chariot that rides champions made Rondo say pop it back in.....(and please, don't hold any man in that much pain for no interview, we know his elbow is jacked up, WE SAW IT, OVER AND OVER AGAIN.....these are folk's sons, babies, husbands and daddy's.....so not cool........so not)

The chariot that rides champions made Kevin say's these fools think they coming into my house and taking my money......not today.  I can't see that son, I can't see that.

The chariot that rides champions is here for you today, Dallas Mavericks.

And baby b/c of my big mouth and others.

THE WORLD KNOWS IT.


THE ONLY QUESTION THAT REMAINS......


ARE YOU GOING TO GET ON IT?


God is really mean mugging me........Okay, last tidbit and I gotta go.


Last night on twitter someone said, and I couldn't get the author so please let me know so I can give credit.....something to the effect of who would have thought four years ago, Obama would be president......in reference to the lakers........


Dallas......


Dallas........


It is going to take the poise of Cuban on down to the visceral energy manifested by blood, sweat and tears in American Airlines center today by every Dallas player to hit that court to win this game.


In street terms, Phil and Kobe are straching their arms, getting their macgyver on to get this series back.......


They hustlers......certified..........they gotta almost 20 rings between them two and they whole squad got bling......


They got the the nation on their side and the wave of Lord if the Lakers can do it Obama can do behind their back......


They got it all, but one thing.


DALLAS, TEXAS TODAY AT 3:30.


DALLAS MAVERICK FANS IT'S COOL WITH THE BLUE T-SHIRTS.  BUT COACH SAY HE NEED NOISE......


WE NEED AUDIO CHAOS........


WE NEED THROUGH OUR VOICES, THROUGH OUR EMOTIONS, WE NEED TO BE THAT  6TH MAN ON THE COURT AT ALL TIMES.


WE NEED FOR THE LAKERS TO FEEL THAT WE AIN'T BOWING DOWN.......


WE AIN'T LAYING DOWN FOR THE CHAMPS, WE AIN'T LAYING DOWN FOR NOBODY.

STRANGER THINGS HAVE HAPPENED.


THE ONLY WAY TO ENSURE THAT THE REIGN STOPS IS TO STOP IT TODAY.


B/C THE NBA IS MORE THAN BASKETBALL AND YOU GUYS KNOW THAT.


THAT CHARIOT IS COMING AT 3:30, I CAN'T PROMISE YOU IT'S GOING TO STILL BE THERE NEXT WEEK EVEN IF YOU WIN THE SERIES LATER.


THE CHARIOT IS FOR CHAMPIONS, IT COMES WHEN IT COMES B/C IT HAS MOMENTUM AS FUEL FOR THE JOURNEY AHEAD.


5 years ago, that chariot came and through a traffic violation, Wade got to drive it.


Y'all live in Dallas....From my story to the story of the mavericks and every where in between,


YOU KNOW TRAFFIC ACCIDENTS OF ALL KINDS HAPPEN DOWN HERE.


THE ONLY WAY TO ENSURE THAT YOU ARE THE ONLY ONES THAT GET ON THAT CHARIOT IS TO SWEEP ANY REMINDER OF THE LAKERS BEFORE THAT CHARIOT LEAVES AROUND 7 PM TONIGHT.


DIRK AND JASON KNOW AIN'T NO GUARANTEE IT'S COMING BACK.


Dirk, Jason, Jason, Jose, Tyson, Brendon, Deshawn, Shawn, Peja, Brendon.

There are security concerns due to some religious/culture issues being fought in the back alleys of this game.  If you see something suspicious call 911 or 214-979-1111 if at DART stations... We got some folk trying to play dirty pool.
