Shaka Zulu Pinkney

tumblr_mwzgawfwtp1qzmh88o1_500One day out of boredom after long day of horse playing in verbal and action, I ended up watching Shaka Zulu on television acted out by Henry Cele. He did a good job displaying the idea of the character. That character was totally a bad to the bone and sparked my curiosity. Inspired by this regal black figure of majestic to this day, I wonder how could he have been if I’m under his rule. I know that blacks today are full of ignorance and unable to coexist well within their own race which I’m part of and needlessly to be proud of. Ignorance in their part is terrible to the point where I disown them as an uncivilized race. I’m at this age of not caring what’s going on as the black lives matter move long in the brink of Donald Trump presidency as he is known for his bigotry and fear tactics, fueling the fire of racism once again. I doubt it is going to be alright as I prepare for what is to come. May it be living in the wilderness when the war of a great multitudes make its way with nukes or a coming civil war. I. Just. Don’t. Know! Just because I have noticed the groups in a cult like manner alongside the streets all over the parts of the country with words of preaching the scriptures that America’s destruction is at hand. It is been said since Bush and Obama administration which led me to get the popcorn ready for what’s to come and not be quick to believe. I’m that observant in among the hostility of races with their sensitivity behind the right and wrongs of history etched on pages and in mind. I have no desire to take sides but to watch in my sore pleasure. Anywho back to Shaka Zulu, he was known for his overthrowing the British long enough before the British laid him down. How he was known for? He was known for gruesome tactics of war with nothing but raw, primal strikes of spears that were short enough to strike in close combat by agile and quickness. The British was using nothing but guns and cannons with the disadvantage of taking time to reload and fight back. How awesome was that?

It is funny not too long ago in the mid of 2012, Tarrus Riley, the Jamaican reggae artist, came up with the song that striked the chords of spirit to take heed the calling of an ancient, warrior spirit known as Shaka Zulu. I am no fool. There is no way to take upon anything without reason since I have no one behind me to have something to fight about.

The warrior code is and always been having selflessly to protect and not in the stake of killing and fighting for fun or just destroy nothing out of bitterness and anger. Meanwhile I am my own worst enemy! I do have pent-up anger as Shaka did have from the bastardness and insulting of character by peers. It takes self control, temperament and forgiveness to put pent up anger in a constructive way. All that together begin the pride of humility. In comparison of myself and Shaka’s, he deployed tactics that made his army exceedingly great by running across the savannah plains in a blistering heat on bare feet, moving bolder of rocks by the streams in the form of exercising, and strategizing effective quick ways to achieve a goal, fearlessly and stealthly. I am just merely a one man army, doing push ups and running every chance I get to exercise just to stay shape for every chance I could get.

Here’s the thing which is cool. Since we are accustomed to religion and the fear of the you-know-who sending us to a horrible pit of no return and get sizzled like bacon bits,

Very well said as I applaud that. It is known that during their tribal ritual that come in the form of dance by stomping to express their fearsome spirit, they usually put sticks of fire in their mouth and spit fire along with sounds of drums!
