    look if you just stopped very rarely spending maybe 15 or 20 dollars on things like a phone, a video game or pizza, your min wage income would add up to 250,000 dollars in a month so you can buy a house or something because magic. Hail Free Market. Amen.

My first ebook is available to purchase!
The Assimilation Program is the first in a series of short sci-fi stories leading up to a full-length novel, A Digital Soul. Each details the story of a different character, and how they play into the main story. 

Jason Kaukis is not a normal boy. He’s not even a boy—he’s an android, made from wires and electrical pulses. But his job is to become a normal boy, to be adopted by a human family like so many droids before and after him. After he awakens in the facility in the year 2067, appearing to be a 12-year-old boy, he learns he must go through an assimilation program to prove his worth. If not, he faces being outmoded and used for scrap. His goal is to get out, but he can barely grasp the new world. He tries to figure out the facility and its inner workings, but only finds more questions. This ebook is the first short story in a series detailing the events leading up to an overthrow of the Modern Droid System. It contains a sample of the second volume, The Bionic Study.

The ebook is a little over 10,000 words, and costs .99 cents. If you don’t own a kindle device, you can purchase it on the Kindle app for your smartphone, or the Kindle App for PC.
This is my very first published work as an author, and I hope in spite of my amateur status I can give you all a story you can enjoy, as well as more in the future.

This is one of the most insulting things that I have ever seen, it makes me so mad I actually want to cry. I can’t believe magazines think that they can just dip a woman in brown paint, give her clothes from my culture to put on for a couple hours and then have audacity to call her an “African Queen”. Growing up I heard every joke about Africans and saw the negative stereotypes portrayed by the media that tried to make me feel so bad about where I come from. Yet Ive noticed when fashion magazine want to do spreads portraying poise and exoticness they often turn to Africa ( and many other foreign continents/nations) proving time and again that Africa is more than the negative images you see in the media)  but this time, to try and take parts of my beautiful culture just to have white women play the role of an “African Queen” proves that beauty cannot be seen in our countries/cultures unless it is represented by White people.

Tumblr is a real-time, continuous documentation of language evolution and race dynamics. Over the last three years I’ve seen the language used by the Black users I follow make its way into the lexicon of white and other nonblack people’s vernacular. It happens rapidly and the astonishing thing is that despite the indisputable and clearly identifiable origins of the words and phrases coined primarily by Black Americans, nonblacks lay immediate claim to the language and use it to trivialize African American culture and dehumanize and persecute its purveyors.
