I totally agree with that statement! After a ‘friend’ on Facebook shared a link to Jas’ blog post about ‘classism’ I clicked and read it. Her words ring true, not only for me, but I’m sure they will for you too. Go here to see what she had to say. Salute to everyone involved with the Best Man Holiday film! I’m going to need the media to do better when classifying anything to do with ‘color’. xo Roz-O!

"My uncle used to have all these things on his bucket list/ And now he’s acting like, ‘Oh, well, this is life. I guess.’ Nah, fuck that shit/ Listen man, you can still do what you want to do, you got to trust that shit/ Heard once that in dire times when you need a sign, that’s when they appear/ Guess since my text message didn’t resonate, I’ll just say it here/ Hate the fact that my mom’s cooped up in her apartment, telling herself that she’s too stuck to get dressed up and go do shit like that’s true shit."
"I remember hitting my all time low .. depressed .. stuff really just wasn’t working out. But if I can go back now and tell myself anything .. It’s that nothing ever comes out of fear .. negativity .. you can’t expect the best .. If you’re not at your best or feel your best. That’s just .. the law of the world. But if you imagine how it feels to be doing everything you want .. everything you dream and you know and accept it’s coming .. and pay attention to how that feels .. pay attention to how you feel then. Because when you know what you want is on the way … notice how much better you feel. That’s the first step to creating the world you want. You make your own limits. It was my family who taught me that. Certain people stepped in and picked me up when I was down. Believed in me when it was hard to believe in myself … and I didn’t wanna let them down …"
Dream it. Believe it. Be it Folks! xo @rozOonTheGo
"I feel ready. Anybody who plays the game of football has dreams of one day being a starter. At least they should have those kinds of aspirations. Since day one this is what I wanted." - Cortez Allen

"[Y]ou can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something — your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life."

"You see the Roc-A-Fellas, the Bad Boys – you see those crews and you’re like yo, we could do that."
"We got one of the best rappers in the game … The whole thought was, man, anything’s possible."

“Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything — all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure – these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart. … Stay hungry. Stay foolish.”
– Steve Jobs -Stanford University commencement address, June 2005.
