The Sandmann's Journal Vol. 4 widens the scheme of my Hiphop KruZade. If you've read volumes 1, 2, & 3, you know what we're talking about. Sandmann is giving his reaction to how the world works today. In this journal, you are following an old school Hip Hop emcee as he documents his views on the changes that have taken place in this world. You are reading the fourth volume of the journal, and there are usual topics like how the Hip Hop music Kulture has changed. I lament that this generation does not seem to care about their heritage or the impact of the new values they encourage. Since our ancestors relied on the former system of Abrahamic doctrine, you will notice that the Indiana Senate bill was also a big deal, in my opinion. Now, check this out.
The change difference in generational mentalities is not only in Hip Hop. It is also present in other areas of society, especially in policy and lawmaking. If you hark back to Volume 1, I described my relocation to Toronto, Canada, from Franklin, NJ, USA. It details the process of releasing my first album and book. Of course, I encountered frequent obstacles, but I accomplished my goals with hard work and determination. Nonetheless, I did not return to the United States afterward. Alternatively, I waited and became a writer. As a result, you will find some of my observations there when you read this volume. The tolerance for hate was a shock that struck me in Toronto. That's because I had only known people who promote love.
It was astonishing because I was always around people who encouraged love before that. I met people who talked about hate in Toronto and used it the same way I had known others to talk about or use love. I remember when someone told me that "hatred was their right." A teacher at a college I attended said, "Use hatred as your motivation." I've always said Toronto would be perfect if it weren't for that small but influential demographic that encourages hatred directly and unapologetically. That is why you'll find chapters such as "A Lesson on Love," "Ill Observations While Living in Toronto," "Canadian Smokers," and "To Galvanize the Hiphop Kulture in Canada." At the college I mentioned, I took a course in primary paramedic care.
Therefore, you should not be flabbergasted when you find chapters on diabetes or emergency services. Since radical feminism was also a culture shock for me, it became a frequent subject in "The Sandmann's Journal." Every time I read an article or experienced the primary aspect of radical feminism, I would write a blog about it. With my research continuing on the subject, I discovered that some men had established the MGTOW movement, which stands for "men going their way." When I learned about it, I was just as surprised as when I first discovered radical feminism. The chapters go back and forth between my favorite Hip Hop emcees at the time, the status of Hip Hop, how does the revolutionary feminist movement and MGTOW affect the relationship between women and men, etc.? What about the contrast between police brutality in the United States and religious education in the West? I then tribute to dearly departed legends such as Muhammad Ali and Prince.
This volume does not deal with the cultures of African music. Instead, I articulate my influences in literary writing. If you ask me to summarize, Volume 4, I would say that it awakens men to consider that radical feminism is a serious problem and take appropriate action to solve it. This book is also an awakening for non-radical feminists to see the difference between the two versions of feminist culture. It is also an update on my good and bad experiences in Canada.
