Grammy Member Tiffany Cheri Price Releases Domestic Violence Book

leave a comment »

Singer/Songwriter Tiffany Cheri Price is writing one of the most potent books set to release spring of 2010. The Atlanta based singer/songwriter has penned her most powerful story to date: the story of the struggle and pain of surviving domestic violence.

Tiffany Cheri Price Domestic Violence Survival Book "I'm Strong Enough"

The book is loosely based on her personal experiences growing up and dealing with abusive situations and violence in the home. After years of holding this story in during a successful music career, she has decided to come out and share her story with other women who deal with this hidden secret.

Tiffany Cheri Price’s book, “I’m Strong Enough” will be released initially on her own publishing imprint and publishing company in Atlanta, GA, 2209 Publishing. This young lady is very brave and strong to share her story of triumph and give back to women who struggle with such a potentially deadly and secretive situation where often times the victim is simply too scared and too emotionally scarred to seek help and guidance.

Tiffany’s poignant book tells the story of witnessing the brutal gun beating of her mother before facing her own domestic abuser. As a domestic abuse survivor, Tiffany Cheri Price pledges “strength, wisdom, knowledge, experience, and encouragement” as domestic abuse victims pledge the words ‘I’m Strong Enough’. A portion of the proceeds of book sales will be donated to the Tiffany Cheri Price I’m Strong Enough Foundation which will assist abuse victims with rental assistance.

Ms. Price is also gearing up for speaking engagements across the southeast and the entire United States and speaks to women at conferences, colleges, prisons, and treatment centers. You can reach her directly for booking at tiffanycheriprice@gmail.com.

How To Break Out Of Jail

with one comment

Believe it or not, physical jail starts with mental and emotional destruction of human life. Physical jail is simply an outward expression of an inner jail that lies dormant within a person’s mind. If you are in an emotional/mental jail, your mind will take every conceivable action to put you in a physical jail cell for a nice long bid.

To break out of the physical jail or incarceration, we must first deal with the emotional and mental jail that shackles young black youth. Building better prisons is not a crime solving exercise. It deals with the effect but not the cause of emotional jail. Now, I’m not ignorant and I know that our society has real criminals that commit real crimes just because they have the devil within them.

Some people love to shoot, destroy, rape, and kill others. There is nothing that you will ever do to heal and stop a true criminal from being a true thug. I do believe that some people, and I have met many of them when I speak at prisons, love crime. They love hurting people. They have murdered people and will never repent. These people don’t need to break out of jail and they need to sit right where they are and not be allowed to hurt others with heinous crimes.

This is for those who are doing bids and are incarcerated over very poor decisions and very poor actions. You can change. You can do it.

How To Get Fit In An Unfit World

leave a comment »

America is inundated with advertisements on food that will kill you. As a nation, we are the global world leader and authority on obesity, overweight earthlings, and plain old fat stores on the body. On top of this, we then have companies that get rich off of then selling instant cures to this weight problem.

[picapp src=”d/6/5/4/Floyd_Mayweather_Open_39b1.jpg?adImageId=6636089&imageId=4863078″ width=”380″ height=”243″ /]

You have to first understand that your body is a very complex machine that God has made for us. It knows exactly what to do because our bodies are directly connected to our minds. The body knows when to store fat and it knows exactly how to get rid of fat when it is working. There is no magic pill that will make fat go away because the body doesn’t respond like this.

You can’t just raise your metabolism or your heart rate by taking something. I thoroughly recommend something simple to reduce weight. The first thing to do is immediately stop eating processed foods. Processed foods are the pre-cooked frozen meals at the grocery store that people have convinced us that we need because we simply don’t have time to cook anything.

You don’t even need super excellent nutrition to get the weight down. You don’t need to munch on salads everyday. You need to remove processed foods and start baking or grilling your food.

The next thing you need to do is walk every single day without fail. America has become so dependent on the automobile that we never, ever walk anywhere. People were thinner in the pre-industrial and pre-automobile age because we relied on bicycles and walking to go anywhere. I recommend walking every single day for at least 4 miles or 1.5 to 2 hours each day.

You will be amazed at how much weight you start to drop just by doing that alone. The combination of removing processed foods and walking 2-4 miles each day will make you start dropping weight in 30 days. Don’t make any excuses. Just walk. Get a good pair of running or walking shoes so that the walk is comfortable for you. If you don’t like walking or hiking, simply get on a bicycle and ride your bike each day.

The key to reducing any amount of weight anywhere on your body lies in doing the task every single day of your life so that it becomes a habit. Good habits are where breakthroughs and success live.

The Young Black Mans Guide To The Inmate Problem

leave a comment »

Ok. As young black men, we are in prison in very high numbers. Yes, there is a systematic plan in place to keep these numbers high. Yes, America needs to continue to build America on the backs of slaves and get free labor. Yes, America accepts and wants us in prison. Yes, America plants drugs in the community and give it to us freely so that we can get locked up and become a free prison worker to power corporate American greed.

[picapp src=”e/4/2/3/Darfur_Refugees_In_86a9.jpg?adImageId=6632796&imageId=3298424″ width=”380″ height=”253″ /]

NO, we don’t have to actively participate. We do not have to be inmates. We do not have to engage in activities that get you a one-way ticket to jail. We can change the situation and be better. Yes, we can. We don’t have to sell and deal drugs on the corner because we feel inferior and feel that we cannot go to college and make it the way other kids can.

Trust me when I tell you that just because someone gives you a brick on the avenue to sell it and make money, that this person is legit. Many times, this is an undercover agent working for the feds who plant drugs in the community in order to test people, let them sell it, and have a sting operation set up to watch the paper trail.

Fast money is the work of the devil. Slow money is the work of champions. You don’t have to make money today just to feel like you’re doing something major. And most times, young cats say that they need to take care of their baby mama and haven’t sent her a dime to take care of the child in years. Stop being a part of a designed plan to keep you handcuffed both physically and mentally.

The Education Of Black America

leave a comment »

The lack of education for black Americans is at pandemic proportions. More than ever, we are losing footing and ground in the war on education. Let me put it this way, before a corporation hires an African American, they will go sail the seas and head to foreign soil to find a worker before they hire someone in America and especially before they hire an African American worker.

[picapp src=”9/2/b/2/Times_100_Most_d6c9.jpg?adImageId=6629998&imageId=4725173″ width=”380″ height=”570″ /]

What to do to compete with this in a land full of opportunity as America? Start getting educated and make a commitment to improving yourself from an academic standpoint. What does this mean? This means that you must go seek and find every single program that The Obama Administration has made available to Americans to get re-educated.

Do not believe in the get educated fast and get a job in six months programs. Most of these programs are fake and do not even care whether or not the industry that they are promoting has jobs in it. They care about getting the money that the Government has made available to train you in some silly program where you will never get a job.

You must look at growth industries in America and plan your education around these growth industries. Industries such as Technology, Healthcare, Pharmaceutical, etc will always grow and need American workers. You must be committed to finding these programs, finding what you like to do within these, and going for it and studying to reach your goal. You must not bail on the program and quit halfway through.

From a foreign competitive level, the foreigner will NOT quit. They will do whatever it takes on the planet to get them over to America and leave their country for a better life. Why don’t we see it this way? We must do whatever it takes to leave the ghetto and improve our lives.

The Get Out Of Jail Guide

leave a comment »

The first thoughts that you have when you get out of jail are “damn, shit, fuck, gotdamnit, etc.” You start wondering where the hell everybody is and why no one came to see you and why mostly everyone stopped accepting your collect calls. You then go back into “damn, shit, fuck, gotdamnit” and start wondering what the hell are you going to do since you have this gotdamn felony on your back.

[picapp src=”7/8/1/5/CalifPrisons_f860.JPG?adImageId=6627610&imageId=6505321″ width=”380″ height=”253″ /]

First of all, here’s what not to do. Do not head straight back to the block that you used to fuck around on and got locked up on. Realize too, that your crew that you thought would be down for you are just not there. They’re not supposed to be there for you like that and even if they are, they will lead you right back to another bid fuckin’ around with them.

Yes, you were in jail for some time and this also put you in a mental jail where your mind does not think that you can change. You now have prison walls in your mind and although you got your dress outs and are out of the physical prison walls, you are still confined in a cell in your mind.

This must change. You must realize that you don’t have to go back to the streets in order to make money. Yes, you have a felony. Yes, that stops you from getting some jobs but we have a cleanup job to do with your mind and you need to believe that you can clean this shit up.

Your freedom lies in your ability to get an education. You must learn. You must not believe that you cannot get educated. It’s the lack of education most likely that got you a bid in the first place. You must stop believing in greed and cash money.

How To Survive Living a Black Dangerous Life

leave a comment »

Being black in America has proven to be very dangerous and deadly in 2009. High school kids have been killed, athletes have been jailed, and rappers are being put behind bars at a faster pace than ever before.
[picapp src=”d/0/8/e/Jesse_Jackson_Meets_637a.jpg?adImageId=6620434&imageId=6743712″ width=”380″ height=”560″ /]

Here’s what to do to stay alive and survive in America. Education, education, education. I cannot say it any clearer. Your opportunities increase exponentially with education. I’m talking about finishing high school with a good grade point average, going on to college and graduating with a Bachelor’s of Science type of degree, and heading on to business school.

No more excuses. There are all types of programs and grants and loans available to get an education today. President Obama has made sure of that. It’s now in the hands of black youth to take action and get educated. This is a state of emergency and must be implemented immediately.

Anyone who lives in the ‘hood should move. I suggest moving as far away from the ghetto as possible as this increases your life expectancy greatly. The ghetto is filled with strife, anger, despair, and destitution. Time for change and time to leave that behind. It’s time for a new way of life and a new glory. Get out of the ‘hood mentality, get educated, and no more excuses. You owe yourself glory and greatness.
