I’ve had convos with young, eligible voters who dis voter registration and voting in general. From these conversations, I have brief moments where I doubt my personal foundation and life’s meaning, I’m not mad at them – I don’t like it, but I understand.
I hope you realize that you are powerful. Particularly, when you are hanging out with your peeps. Much more than the old heads, you’re in and around a variety of social settings – house parties, clubs, bars, and impromptu gatherings – where there can be great socializing.

Uncut, lip-curling, stank, funk! I realized that I was a Funkateer all my life and never realized it. (Name-shouts for James Brown, The Bar-Kays, Booker […]
Visa Olympics: Go World—Derek Redmond from Kirsten Stewart on Vimeo. I’m that guy who gets caught up in the Olympic pause-for-peace hype. Just when I get my people-of-the-world-unite-through-sports groove, I also get caught up on the cash-money hustle of this world sport game – fashion faux pas, copyright police, anemic storytelling, and incivility.
