It's Because I'm Young

Blackness. Jazz. Rap. Politics. History. Religion. When I'm stressed I turn to Coltrane and when I'm angry it's Mingus. James Baldwin is my favorite writer and Yasiin Bey my favorite rapper.  “I am black; I am in total fusion with the world, in sympathetic affinity with the earth, losing my id in the heart of the cosmos -- and the white man, however intelligent he may be, is incapable of understanding Louis Armstrong or songs from the Congo. I am black, not because of a curse, but because my skin has been able to capture all the cosmic effluvia. I am truly a drop of sun under the earth.” - Frantz Fanon
