This blog touts me as the most fearless writer in America, and I stand behind that declaration. Given the fact that corporations and advertisers control the major media networks in this country, many analysts, anchors, commentators, news directors and talk-show hosts bow to their masters and keep their eyes and mouths shut regarding the issues that matter most in this country. The same can be said for the majority of the “pussified” news publications. Many celebrities, whether in Hollywood or in sports, are hesitant to speak out because they're either too drugged up, too insensitive, too pretentious, too stupid or too worried about how doing so would impact their career. Everyone wants to play it safe and not rock the yacht for fear of losing power, position or the enormous wealth they've acquired. The G-Man doesn't play that bullshit, and he never will. If wealth came knocking at my door one day, you can bet your ass I'd take the money...with a stipulation that I could still issue literary ass-kickings and take names.

I have forsaken “comfort” most of my life, and it's costs me everything from living good to having a loving wife and family. My mission as a journalist and writer has always been to stand up and proclaim, “This is fucked up!” Moreover, leading clergy members, such as Archbishop David I. Hartman, who also happens to be a devoted "G-Fan", have told me God's plan is for me to showcase the ills of this society and challenge those responsible for any role they may play in its demise. In the process, I've managed to piss off everyone from high-ranking elected officials to hip-hop artists. Yes, I'm the most fearless writer in America, and I stand behind that declaration.

With that said, you should know the content of this article could literally get me killed. There are no sacred cows when it comes to pursuing righteousness and attempting to save people's lives, so I've decided to take on every single “Blood”, “Crip” and “MS-13” gang member in America. Now, to be fair, some of them will get the message I'm trying to convey. Others will be angry and itching to put a bullet in me. These gangs do not take kindly to being challenged, especially in public. They're armed with an arsenal of weapons and connections, and they will not hesitate to use them if they feel threatened or dissed. I totally get that. However, what they need to understand is that I'm simply a man armed with a laptop and a pair of balls the size of grapefruits! I'm putting myself out there because too many young and innocent people are being killed or seriously injured during shootings between these rival groups. This is bad enough, but when the victims are barely two months old and have yet to utter the word “Ma-Ma”, people have to be called out: black politicians, black celebrities, the black community and black gang-bangers! This is a crisis that not even a black president can fix. This.... is a black COMMUNITY thing.

I want every gang member across the nation, and those on the verge of joining, to read the next two paragraphs very carefully. There is little I can say that will prevent you from joining these lethal gangs, but there is something I can and will do. I'm going to use the Internet to reach out to you. “The G-Man Challenge Initiative” offers you an opportunity to take part in an extremely unorthodox reading and writing exercise through my catalog of powerful and extremely controversial articles posted on this blog and on my media page at “”. If you're are willing to take the time to read my articles and send me an email to discuss them, even if it means going to the local library to use a computer, The G-Man will find the time to show you some love and respect by directly contacting and encouraging you! My email address is listed at the top of this blog.

Again, I don't care if you roll with Bloods, Crips, Latin Kings or MS-13. If there are others out there that belong to gangs other than those mentioned, and you want some of this, come get some! I don't care if you're male, female or whatever. It doesn’t even matter if you can’t read or write! You can have someone you love and trust read the article to you and help you write a response. I’m not here to judge you on English or your writing style. I just want you to respond, and I hope that will be on a regular basis. For every person that takes part in the initiative, that's one more gang-banger off the street and doing something positive. If I end up getting only 10 emails at first, that is a major accomplishment on your part. I’m challenging all of you to stand up or “man-up” by reading and expressing yourselves through the written word instead of negative behavior and gang violence. Many of you are already doing it every time you sit down and write your own rap lyrics or short stories, so take it a step further by accepting my challenge, putting away the guns and taking yourselves to another level, emotionally and mentally.
