Wow…
Is this an exciting time or what???
As most of you know, I am a lone wolf here in Fayetteville NC blogging about an unjust thanksgiving shooting of an honor roll Fayetteville State Student… Someone asked me why I had so much conviction about this unfortunate tragedy??? “K-Roc” is family… No, not literally but(first big but in the room) family just the same…
I took a little time to recuperate at the beach but could not escape the thoughts of a life taken too early…
I believe the lyrics to the Kidd Rock song “Amen” sums up the question, “What’s really going on???” Check it out:

Habitual offenders, scumbag lawyers with agendas
I’ll tell you sometimes people I don’t know what’s worse
Natural disasters or these wolves in sheep clothes pastors
Now God damn it I’m scared to send my children to church
And how can we seek salvation when our nations race relations
Got me feeling guilty of being white
But faith in human nature, our creator and our savior, I’m no saint
But I believe in what is right

C’mon now amen, amen
I said amen, amen

That is the way I feel too…
When I think about the shooting of this innocent young black man and the killing of his distant cousins who also met the same fate; I say, “whats really going on???”

It has been a month since this young man was failed in the streets of Fayetteville North Carolina that kenmara_davis-400x3008 dreadful night… So today we keep K-Roc’s memory alive thru this blog and this upcoming “March on the Market House…”

So lets say as “Kidd Rock” says: Amen, Amen, Amen…

“Cry Out Loud for Justice: March On the Market House in Fayetteville NC for K-Roc 19 January 2009!!!”

Wow…
Does this stuff get any better than this or what???

As all of you know, I have been blogging about the unjust fatal police shooting of a honor roll Fayetteville State student in Fayetteville NC on thanksgiving day… fayetteville-market-house-picture6 K-Roc, the young man gunned down by a renegade police officer, only crime according to witnesses was “walking in his community while black!!! According to witnesses, K-Roc was shot in the back while his hands were raised in the air…” “What is that about???” kenmara_davis-400x3007
Regardless to what might have been the officer’s reasoning for shooting that dreaded night; how can the officer or anyone else justify shooting an unarmed black man in the back??? Can someone answer me that question??? Someone asked me why I am so adamant about getting this information out to the people; well because K-Roc could have been me or you that dreadful night… It is important to know that this renegade officer became the “Judge, Jury, and exercutioner” on all “blacks and people of color” that night…
Say it aint so???
But unfortunately it is…

So I am calling for all blacks, African Americans, and people of color; to join the family of K-Roc and me on 19 January 2009 in a “March on this Market house (former slave selling place) City…” If you are a “culturally conscious” believer in social justice, then join us in this “show of unity” against all injustices we as a people have experienced in this country; past and present!!!” This is the only way we as people can insure that our voice is heard and the “seeds of Change” are planted to prevent situations like this from happening again…
Do you feel me???
I am sure you can…
Wow…
“People united can never be defeated!!!”
So spread the word by sending this blog around to “Culturally Conscious” people of color around the world… This is about our heritage as a people and how we will be treated in the future here, around the country, and around the world…” We can not sit back and let this horrific “injustice” go without making a “loud cry of “No Justice, No Peace!!!””
Do you feel me???
Do you feel me???
Then say Yesh!!!
Say Yeah!!!
Yes we can!!!

Wow…
We must come together as a peole and not allow this honor student”s tragic death to be in vain… Whether Rev. Al Sharpton or Jesse Jackson shows up; we must show up!!!” Whether Michael Baisden or Thom Joyner broadcast this historical event in the historical city; we must broadcast it on every webpage, email address, and cell phone we have… We must not wait for the so-called leaders of our people to get on board because we can’t afford to wait… Not this time…
Not this year…
Not this people…
We must show up, stand up, and speak up against this injustice and injustices everywhere…

Hopefully all of our leader will show up and get on board, but (big get-on-board but in the room) we must forge ahead as a people with a purpose for our own destiny…

Please leave your comments of encouragement and support… “Cry Out Loud (COL) for Justice” and be a part of history on the “March on the Market House in Fayetteville NC” 19 January 2009…
Somebody say yes!!!
Yes!!!
Yes we can!!!
