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.

The Right to Feel (Louis Toliver Jr- Swartz, LA)
For every man that has every been called nigger, faggot, or trash daily… as a child
For every man that knows what it is like to be beaten …as a child for no reason
For every man that knows what it is like to be molested …as a child and not even come to realize it until you were an adult… For every man who thought his best days… as a child, were when he was asleep…I would like you to know, with the deepest sincerity and best intentions, …that you have the right to feel.
