Quotes attributable to Anslinger include (and there are certainly more than these): "Reefer makes darkies think they're as good as white men." "You smoke a joint and you're likely to kill your brother." And my personal favorite, "There are 100,000 total marijuana smokers in the U.S., and most are Negroes, Hispanics, Filipinos and entertainers. Their Satanic music, jazz and swing result from marijuana use. This marijuana causes white women to seek sexual relations with Negroes, entertainers and any others."Examples of the war on drugs being a war on class persist to the present, as in the case of the difference of penalty associated with rock and powder cocaine.
"Creep" When you were here before Couldn't look you in the eye You're just like an angel Your skin makes me cry You float like a feather In a beautiful world I wish I was special You're so fucking special But I'm a creep I'm a weirdo What the hell am I doing here? I don't belong here I don't care if it hurts I wanna have control I want a perfect body I want a perfect soul I want you to notice When I'm not around You're so fucking special I wish I was special But I'm a creep I'm a weirdo What the hell am I doing here? I don't belong here She's running out the door She's running out She run run run run... Run... Whatever makes you happy Whatever you want You're so fucking special I wish I was special But I'm a creep I'm a weirdo What the hell am I doing here? I don't belong here I don't belong here

When it comes to Toto, being just the newest and most advanced product has never been nor needed to be the primary focus. Toto's ideas start with the people, and discovering what they need and want to help them in their daily lives. The days of things being pretty just for pretty's sake are over. When it comes to Toto you will get it all. A beautiful design, with high quality parts, inside and out, that will last longer than you ever expected. Toto is the worldwide leader in plumbing, and although they are known for their Toilets and unique washlets, Toto carries everything from sinks and faucets, to bathroom accessories and urinals with flushometers. So whether it be a replacement toilet seat, a new bath tub or a whole new, higher efficiency money saving toilet, Toto has what you need, at a reasonable price.
The Dream Warrior interview in ARTnews about this story is really insulting! Baltimore is “off the beaten path” and not a real art culture? The first thing the New York gallery people did was put bars over the windows – presumably to protect their expensive “New York Art” from Baltimore? You can’t tell me they put up bars to reference Freddy Kreuger. I do not believe that.
Who do these people think they are? And why is ARTnews giving them a free pass to say condescending things about Baltimore? Obviously, the interviewer knows who they are or he wouldn’t be conducting the interview at all and being so obsequiously flattering. (“Sweet name, dude.”) Why are people afraid to name those behind this project?
If they can’t conduct themselves with respect for a unique culture and place, maybe it’s time to head back to New York!
Besides Lauren's health scare, we did have some good times dancing at Reggae and I met some amazing artists, including Alpha Blondie, Isreal Vibrations and some powerful women singer such as Jah9 and Etana. I gave them all copies of my World Cup songs, which enabled me to approach them on a more personal level. Very special! and much thanks to Mateel manager Justin Crelin, who gave me a back-stage pass, and to Lauren, who encouraged me to be assertive.
