Wrongfully convicted individuals must face a new day. While some harbor animosity and anger for the years that they stayed under the watchful eye of the law, people like Tulsa Oklahoma native Corey Atchison expressed only the joy of being granted liberty. With new insights into cases, the number of people freed from prison continues to go on so that justice may be served. Whether it’s through DNA or another look at the particular matter, the way that men and women have been released from the confines of cell walls speaks to a system that is imperfect.
The white phone matched the gray, peeling walls that surrounded the bevy of women waiting to talk on the phone. The day seemed normal, inmates milled about, yearning for the chance to talk with their loved ones. One woman, Ellish Vat, leaned her head against the window. Her dark hair clashed against the grayness. Her skin looked like yellow glue. She flashed a smile. On the other line, her six-year-old son talked about first grade. Ellish became excited. She shouted when she heard of her baby’s stellar grades.
The business of relationships is what is at stake here. A multibillion-dollar industry seeks to tweak and control the dating habits, social mores, and ethics of human relationships. In this latest alleged heterosexual triangle photo that went viral, the aim ought to be on making sure that the young woman pays for her own manicures and pedicures, wash and sets, and other cosmetics that these vain vixens covet.
Let us first define our terms. The concept of the cult of negativity means that the vicious speech and actions that have been a part of humankind since its inception should be used to motivate and enlighten. Hatred should be employed under the cult of negativity to expand the minds of man. The cult of negativity signals the possibility for religions, races, sexes, and other nonessentials to be met with the ultimate essential: philosophy. Every human being possesses a philosophy whether they know it or not. Those who don’t hold consciously an ideology are often inclined to subscribe to systems that will be used to murder, rape, mutilate, and spew vitriol disguised as humorous language or acts.
The rap arena is flooded with figures. In this age of “I want it now!” female rappers, especially, must contend with their fellow female rappers as well as male MCs quicker and with more verve. They often find themselves referring to their genitalia in songs. MC Cardi B summarized how difficult it is to traverse the hip hop landscape without promoting sexually explicit lyrics. “When I did ‘Be Careful,’ the rapper explained, “people [were] talking mad s––.” This observation has its roots in the thousands of years of artistry across many cultures. Is it “selling out” to appeal to the tastes of the masses? Have rappers already sold out a long time ago?
With her worn out body and waning importance in the sphere of modern music, Madonna no longer has the rights to the letter that slain rapper and actor Tupac penned for her while he was still incarcerated at the Clinton Correctional Facility. The succinct and pointed letter could fetch up to $300,000 at auction. For a letter that is over two decades old and written by a dead hip hop artist, the artifact sets a precedent. Madonna had a spectacular run through the eighties up until the early aughts. She now has the relevance of a DVD player. She can still perform but she lacks the power and ability as the new guns like Ariana Grande.
