"The responsibility of an artist is to be honest with themselves." — Talib Kweli

Adults are fools, and teenagers are bigger fools still. Trust not your parents, and trust not your inclination to disobey them.

You can block a word with your mind; not so a fist.

Racial slurs are harmless, except when they aren't.

The letters in LGBT do not always get along with each other.

The misogynist may laugh if a woman strikes a man.

You can trust both genders to attack you, and neither to defend you.

They will not fear the man or woman who rapes you. They will fear the allegations you bring forth and the minuscule possibility of their falsehood.

It does not matter how many people die from alcohol or tobacco; they will never inspire as much fear as the Adderall you tried once on a dare.

A pothead may be the first to crucify you for heroin.

A heroin addict may be the first to crucify you for alcohol.

An alcoholic may be the first to crucify you for marijuana.

And the sex addict will crucify you for all three.

The car of gangsters will shoot up your whole house; the police will aim only at you.
