Watch the Dealer
Living is very much like playing a card game. You have no control over where or what you will be born into. Once you are born, you simply have to play the hand you are dealt, for better or for worse, rich or poor, tall or short. It's the luck of the draw. It really is 'in the cards'. The immediate question that comes to the keen mind is: who dealt these cards? Who is the dealer? In my case, the American Establishment is the dealer of the cards. They set, enforce, and engrave the rules into the culture long before I am born. And they will modify these rules to their own benefit. Thus, I am born into a ghetto where the prescribed status for males is the cage or the coffin. This is the hand I was dealt. The American Establishment dealt me this hand and they have fixed the deck so that there is no way that I can win the game. Unless, of course, I have an ace up the sleeve. My art is that ace.
