Dear Venice:

Dear Venice:

I want you to know that I am here for you because on Sunday, I felt the pain that you must feel on a daily.

 

We from different hoods but we have a ton in common. We both from hoods that entice white folk to come and take over. 

 

You and me are like Pusha T and Kendrick on that Nostalgia! That beat so hard, our bite so strong and ferocious and our walk so swag ain't no one in the room have the guts to say anything!  Yet, with their looks, they want to tell us we don't belong. I guess they don't know that when provoked, Fire and Fury spit so hard that they need to "show gratitude in the presence of dominance" (Nas, 2018). 

 

And, while we at it that ignorance You push with your passive behavior got me for a minute. Like she said, "talk to me crazy and you quick to forget

You even got me trippin', you got me lookin' in the mirror different

Thinkin' I'm flawed because you inconsistent" (Cardi B, 2018, Be Careful).

 

 

 

 

I don't take L's when it comes to My identity. Like the OG's from Venice,

I'm Boyle Heights down to the way I sound. And, I'm a Critical Race Scholar and so as my mentor tells me,

Dr. Daniel

 

Defend our turf 

Venice bird 

Compulsory patritiotisn is dictatorships

 

 

"Talk to me crazy and you quick to forget

You even got me trippin', you got me lookin' in the mirror different

Thinkin' I'm flawed because you inconsistent

Between a rock and a hard place, the mud and the dirt"

 

I spit ether like Nas did to Jay so don't even think about coming at me! I'm quetArlacoat that likes in my son's spine- the blade so sharp it slice like pusha did drake! Don't try me! There ain't no price tag when you wage war" (pusha t, Santeria, 2018)

 

 

This Sunflower with petals of love and fire will burn if lit so don't try me because my stem stands firm on Cummings street and the concrete that gave firmness to my footing 

 

So Venice the next time you walk in the room no need to fret Boyle Heights and my ancestors got you! 

 

 

Ask Steve jobs wealth don't buy health! Pusha T

In Solidarity,
