twilson117

I go by the handle twilson117. The 117 is to honor my late son who played both High School and Club Soccer a sport he loved. I'm one of the writers from Yabberz and I am happy that AdLib welcomed us here to The Planet. I'm looking forward to making a contribution here and I want to thank all who take time out of their day to read my posts.

Kanye Has Lost His Touchstone, Can He Find Another?

Kanye lost his touchstone when his mother died of surgery complications, and losing her, shattered him. It appears he started slowly spiraling out of control. His wife Kim may have filled that gap and stemmed the downward spiral, but their divorce has placed him back on a path of self-destruction.

Religion, Kept Me from Voting!

I think about all the times I didn’t vote because of my religious beliefs, and I get angry. How could I allow a religious construct to keep me from doing something so many Black people gave their lives for?

Georgia’s Choice: Competence or Unmitigated Ignorance!

Georgians have a choice. They can re-elect Warnock, who, during his two years, has accomplished much for the state of Georgia. Or replace him with Walker.

Don’t Be Fooled, Alex Jones Doesn’t Give a Damn About the Families of Sandy Hook!

Unfortunately for reprobates like Alex Jones, compensatory and punitive damages of any amount will not stop a congenital liar like Jones. He and others like him are amping up their game, and frankly, they don’t give a damn who gets hurt in the process.

We’re Not Here To Replace You, We’re Here To Outperform You!

Why do white people fear and hate us? Are they so afraid through reading and acquiring knowledge that, as a collective group, we would seek their ultimate destruction? Is this why the country’s history is replete with white violence delivered upon Black people?

Weep!

Weep for the Uvalde parents. They will never again hear the laughter of their children. For the grandparents, uncles, and aunts who will never again receive those precious hugs and kisses from their beloved grandchild, nephew, or niece.

The Slap Seen Around The World!

Karma is indeed a bitch, and both Will Smith and Chris Rock are learning from it. One will have to do penance; the other will benefit. I leave it up to you to figure out who is who.

End This Now, Please Stop Killing Babies!

Losing a child at any age is gut-wrenching. But to lose one’s child while attending school, where they are supposed to be safe, is incomprehensible. There is no comprehensive explanation for what took place in Uvalde. None.

Our First Black Female Supreme Court Justice of The United States! Ketanji Brown Jackson

Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson epitomizes what excellence looks like to the fullest despite all the obstacles placed before her path — stoically facing a gaggle of stupid questions such as when Lindsey Graham asked her to rate her faithfulness.
