www.gprc.org (GREAT PLAINS RESTORATION COUNCIL)
We've just launched a new online video campaign to save our youth and the Gulf Coast prairie, and I need your help.
Will you please share this with your family and friends and ask them to contribute to this very important cause?
Our native coastal prairie has less than 1% left alive and wild, and all the birds and animals that depend on America's former Garden of Eden where the prairie meets the sea are equally in trouble.
But our exciting new program Restoration Not Incarceration, which was built out of 9 years of experience with our Plains Youth InterACTION program, is gearing up for a huge, 2 year recovery project.
This stunning effort will help restore people and America's native coastal prairie wildlife on the embattled Gulf of Mexico.
This "Saltwater Country" project is laying the groundwork for a great rebirth... where even the buffalo to come home again to the coast in 5 years or less, and the long lost red wolf in 10 or 15 years.
We're on the intersecting front lines of youth, health, environment, climate change, animal protection, and personal recovery.
This is a chance for America to tell it's own story in the new millennium.
We're trying to raise $60,000 in 90 days. You've always been so awesome.. and always so fiercely active that it makes my heart stay strong!
Will you please help us win this campaign?
I greatly appreciate anything you can do.
People are taking off bite-size chunks of the goal and trying to raise $500 or $1000 inside their circle of friends, family, co-workers, church, etc., much like the AIDS Walk or Breast Cancer.
Only this is so easy -- all people have to do is click and donate. (HERE) ALSO VISIT ---> (HERE)

As many use protest to fight financial oppression...i ponder on my own attitude. Being a fighter and one that never waits for the government to intervene. I am saddened by this whole picture. Capitalism is based on one winning and one losing , but never really two winning at the same time... get my drift?
Prodigy (A vegetarian with sickle cell) Speaks to a young boy with sickle cell Anemia about sickle cell Anemia . He shares some tips with him on how to beat his ailment holistically with the use of eating massive amounts of greens . Prodigy became a vegetarian after contracting sickle cell and noticing the differences in how he felt. This is an incredible piece one the news wont report on , journalist will never mention an interaction like this only the fact that the guy went to jail for a spell. Im thankful for this one...

So as i thought of a new area to cover i figured i would go a different route this time. I will write about the black vegan experience through the lens that every black vegan that i have ever known has experienced. DIETARY RACIAL PROFILING . what is this? its the imperialistic attitude a black vegan faces when shopping in a whole foods market or health store.. it matters not what franchise name it may be its the same attitude in every state I've been. Being a hip hop artist who happens to be vegan food on the road is rough. Its a matter of goggling vegan / vegetarian food to bring up suitable food digs. No matter where i am the feeling starts the minute you walk thru the door...That weird Pan of disbelief i can read their minds ( wait he came for healthy food? you can read the energy so well cause you see it so much , i been vegan 12 years so i know a sincere hello from the fake weird awkward ones. After being greeted by nearly every staff member in a 10 minute time frame.. you cant even see the shelf for the attendant's standing in front of you like they are pitching vacuum cleaners door to door. If you enter that supplement section they will really look at you like you either stole some vitamins or don't know one herb from the next . When i say "Say no i am fine" they usually get really weird at that point. Just stuck in space that a black man knows his herbs . The whole experience is usually capped with the excessive cart probing by patrons when you reach the check out met with much unnecessary conversation by you guessed it another person in disbelief asking " Are you vegan ? " Health in America is as privileged as any other liberty . Colonialism never displayed equality at the table and so we live in this gentrified world where the attitudes of colonizers continue and adamantly imply its not for your black man...
