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.

Race Me (Wesley Yates-West Monroe-LA)

If I could wake up 
To a world full of love 
Life would be breezy 
Yet the color of my skin
Many think I'm their enemy 
It hurts me 
I know love from the inside 
What's white isn't always right
Why am I blamed for the past?
I wasn't in that cast 
I wish people wouldn't race me
Make me feel inhuman 
Just a pieced shell of skin
I'm more than that
