Respect Revenge Pt. 1


Respect Revenge is not your average, everyday novel. It’s more akin to reality than fiction and if you don’t believe me, just ask around…

Follow the life and saga of “Big E” as he climbs from the gutters of poverty and despair to having money and respect on the mean streets of “NapTown” only to come to the abrupt realization that power in the streets is an illusion. They say that power is more intoxicating than the strongest alcohol, and when one is under the influence of it, he tends to lose touch with reality; often times until it’s too late. There are no rules in the game anymore and everyone knows that, but in the streets and everywhere else, you get what you give and that’s law! If you never respect nothing else, you had better Respect Revenge or pay a price you may not be able to afford…

Respect Revenge Pt. 2


The streets or the “game” as we call it; has always been a male dominated field and rightly so because the streets are no place for a lady. However, females are often overlooked for all the wrong reasons and that underestimation has been the downfall of some of the most powerful men to ever walk the face of the Earth. Women are smart, crafty and use mental coercion as opposed to physical dominance, as a means to impose their wills.

Meet Tyesha, the First lady of the Hard Part and one who was groomed personally by her Man, Mentor and lover Big E.  As she attempts to pick up the pieces of her life after his untimely demise, something or someone keeps tugging at her spirit that will not allow her to move on. Is it him? Or her loyalty to him that is the root of her unease? It’s like Eric is present in her heart, telling his former star player, that it’s time for her to take over and become the coach of the team. But can she handle it? Is Sheen (Eric’s baby momma and her new-found friend) going to assist her? Can she trust her? Maybe she won’t need to; because after all, a woman is a direct reflection of whatever man she has allowed to groom her and she was groomed by the best. But so was Sheen…

Welcome back to the Hard Part, where Respecting Revenge is Law. Walk with “Ty”, “Sheen” and the team as they attempt to separate truth from falsehood in an attempt at righting a perceived wrong. In the end, there is only one truth, it just depends on who you hear tell it…

Truth & Change


“My people are destroyed for a lack of knowledge.” That is the first sentence in the book of Hosea chapter 4 verse 6. I often wondered what was meant by that. What did the people lack knowledge of that would cause their destruction? After much studying and careful contemplation; I’ve come to the conclusion that the knowledge being spoken of; was knowledge of SELF.

It is obvious that the black male; both young and old alike are being destroyed and systematically destroying themselves by the use, abuse and selling of all manner of drugs. Then; to make matters worse; we are being killed and killing each other at genocidal rates.

If we are being destroyed for a lack of knowledge, then it is imperative that the proper knowledge be acquired in order to bring about real and lasting change. That is what I offer you here. I’ve laid out the Truth about the Black male, and how we have come to be the most misunderstood demographic of people on the face of the Earth. I then in turn offer the knowledge that will usher in Change because there is no point in shining light on a problem without offering realistic solutions on how to go about fixing it.

This book is not for the black male only, but for any and every one who may know one in need of a rope that could very well be the thing that keeps him from drowning. This is that rope…
