My mother who is second generation northern and southern Italian and possibly some other hidden heritage lines that I found in my family tree many years ago that I will discuss in my book I am still writing. Chapter 1 was already published in 1998. Over the last 20 years I have become more concerned with America having a cultural identity that suffers less from the systemic racisim we face and become victim to because of how American History is taught. My mother was called The N-word as a young girl by the kids across the street growing up in Upstate Rochester NY as she searched for friends to play with on her street. This created my own cultural interest in the Harlem Renaissance at a very young age to try and under stand and embrace Black America as well as my Italian Heritage who suffer still the worst forms of racism in our country. Most of the conflicts I have faced myself stemed from White America but I have been caught in the cross fire enough to know my light skin has become the enemy for many who have become opressed by White America and Hate. I forgive those conflicts against me. This has left me without any close friends from every color outside of my own family. Much of my music challenges these obstacles if you listen to the lyrics. Thank for listening. -Ian
