Today’s quote of the day is a verse from Cee-Lo. Before he went completely bo-ho and started singing with Danger Mouse, he was the lead MC for Goodie M.O.B. This verse, taken from “The Experience”, is classic:

I thought you said you was the G-O-D
Sound like another nigga to me, shit
What a nigga do, what a nigga does
And a nigga is what a nigga was
And a nigga done read history but yet his eyes didn’t see
The only reason you a nigga is because somebody else wants you to be
Well a nigga uneducated, integrated, sangin’ “We shall overcome”
A nigga trying to be white is what a nigga seem like have become
And when they call me a nigga to my face
Can’t do nothin’ but walk away
But here it is niggas call other niggas nigga each and every day
Dividing and conquering
when they say the lighter shade of black is okay
After the middle class and they passin’ by
The projects laughin at where we stay
Since a nigga had got grown, had a little bitty of nigga of my own
Should’ve known I couldn’t show ‘em no better than what I was shown
Shit, I still want to hit the club as fresh as I could be
But really, it’s all for another nigga to see
You know how a nigga get when he see another nigga outfit
Don’t want nobody to have what he ain’t got
Somebody get drunk, get mad, and get shot
That’s why the property value ain’t no good in a nigga neighborhood
A nigga could overstand if he only understood
I’m sick of lyin’ I’m sick of glorifyin’ dyin’
I’m sick of not trying, shit I’m sick of being a nigga
Destiny sent me to this dread and she said she felt led
To offer me some wisdom frm this little book she read
And it said a great deal of the black man’s downfall
Was not know that we were not ever niggas at all, hmm
And she looked deeply into my eyes and said brother don’t you know
You complain about being black,
When they mad cuz they can’t be black no mo’
So many black men out here trying to be niggas
Keeping it real to the point that they dying to be niggas
When in actuality the fact is you ain’t a nigga because you black
You a nigga cause of how you act

    LÒinteret du forum est precisement de susciter un debat parmi les citoyens pour que le budget et les choix quÒil sous-tend soient places au c?ur du debat public. Un budget, ce sont des choix. Des choix supposent des priorites.

    Not much on my mind right now. Today was a complete loss. So it goes. I’ve just been sitting around waiting for something to happen. I’ve basically been doing nothing , but I guess it doesn’t bother me.
