My name is Lincoln Anthony Blades and I would like to welcome you to Thisisyourconscience.com, the online magazine I launched on April 1st, 2010. I guess this is where I’m supposed to provide you with detailed information on my general background and detail my hopes, dreams and aspirations, right?
I will tell you this though: As a young, Black, North American residing, West Indian cultured, heterosexual, formerly Protestant, currently agnostic (theist), university educated, hood-pass credited, politically independent, sexually liberal, socially conservative, apathetic, rarely empathetic, child-less, godchild full, sarcastic young man, I only praise ONE thing without fail – INTELLIGENCE – or what I refer to as UN-COMMON SENSE.
This site isn’t about being racist, sexist, misogynistic, anarchist, anti-him/her/them/they or every BLOOD-CLOT body. NOPE. It’s about one simple concept: Honouring those who display sense and criticizing those who have NONE AT ALL. At the end of the day there are two types of people who transcend those rudimentary titles: Smart people & IDIOTS. And I’ll be damned if I allow idiocy of any kind around me just because we share the same background. (*Wannabe Black Panthers ACTIVATE!*)
If you’re someone who often hears “wow you’re really straight-forward” or, “you always keep it 100 with me”…well, welcome home.
This Is Your Conscience
