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.

Who I Am, Who You Are (Louis Toliver Jr-Swartz, LA)

I am someone who was born to care
Often, I find myself thinking of us
How we’ll survive or evolve to be
My passion is from what I feel

I am fueled by the pain of others
To find justice and equality for all
I am ignited by the joy of freedom
To build an empire full of pride

Who I am is real
Who I am is honest
Who I am is compassion
Who I am is love
Who you are is me

You are just like me, I hope you know it
The same safety you seek from life
We all turn to our community in that hope

I am who I am and I am you, this is true
Though my appearance seems different
My love is your love and we all have that core
