The Louisiana Social Pledge

We pledge our allegiance to Louisiana. We will embrace what makes us and our state unique. Louisiana will be recognized as a leader and innovator of the New South. Many great leaders of the future will come from this state. And we will show both the media and politicians that we are smarter than them. We will no longer have our resources exhausted and our people used and left behind. We will work hard and play hard. We will protect each other. We will support each other. We pledge that we will do whatever we can to get these things in motion right now. We will no longer wait for a path to be cleared for us. We will clear the path ourselves. And we ain’t giving up easily. We will socialize in the real world just as well as we do on the internet…in hopes to organize ourselves effectively.

Identity (Louis Toliver Jr-Swartz, LA)


They say what you do
Defines who you are
But sometimes our actions
Don’t match who we are
It is so easy to get confused
By who we are and what we do
We should encourage each other
To act from within the core
And not by the forces from the outside
Your identity is what you make of it
It is a rough sketch of missteps and triumphs
And there is nothing wrong with that
Just embrace what makes
