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.

Zeitgeist (Louis Toliver Jr-Swartz, LA)

Republican or Democrat
We don’t want to be either
Independent, free to be us
Black or white
We want to color life gray
Please integrate our churches
Rich or poor
We see no status quo
There’s potential to invest in all
Citizen or immigrant
We can’t close the doors
Not to a land we never owned
We are done being silent
We are done accepting “no”
We roll the red carpet out for the 21st century
It’s a fresh perspective in the 2010s
