Please Support Krip-Hop Nation's South Africa Tour Nov-Dec 10th Disability Awareness Month in S.A

Hello Friends & Supporters

It all started when I was in my early teens. I told my mom that I wanted to go to South Africa in the middle of the US anti-Aparthied movement in which my father and I was apart of. In my high school years I tried to do a paper on what was going on in South Africa for people with disabilities/Deaf and remember this was in the mid 80's before computers. My paper turned out to be a half a page cause I couldn't find enough information on people with disabilities/Deaf in South Africa at that time.

But, I always loved the Three Stooges. But then another night I was watching Three Stooges and I realized that the show was really racist. The show made black people look stupid and said all kind of racist slurs against different cultures.

Wells Fargo Took My House the IRS is Taking Everything Else

As a 62 year old male bachelor/Hippie Madman, I met the love of my life.  We got hitched, I’ll just say our life together is perfect as a saltnpepper low income senior. With senior and disability problems. I am not saying we don’t debate. We do that. Quite loudly sometimes. Outside of that we get along great. As I say, she has spiced up my life.
