Hi, I'm Bruce Lawson
A 52 year old black man living in Houston, Texas. I didn't follow in my parents footsteps and live up to my potential after High School. As a result I ended up hitting rock bottom. After having partial knee cap removal, I lost everything, lived in a shelter, enrolled back in college after dropping out over 30 years ago, somewhat got back on my feet, and more importantly. Found out that im a talented, compelling, and thought provoking writer.
You see, even though I was a spoiled bratt and a person can be one at any age, I always blamed myself for my life and the decisions I made that effected me personally, socially, and economically. Blaming any person or group of people for any misfortunes i endured as a result of a bad decision of mine that I had control over was not permitted by my parents.
Living in a shelter and having my back against the wall brought out the values my parents drilled into my head that apparently stuck. For once I was fighting for my very existance in life. I woke up one morning and thought to myself, " it's time for a large percentage of African Americans to own up to most of the problems in our community," and blaming other races, particularly white people is unproductive, lazy, and wrong for the current society we live in. I started writing and just couldn't stop, feeling captivated by where my thoughts and emotions were taking me. If you're into writing based on reality, logic, and no sugar coating, then Who Can You Blame Now is about as real, logical, and compelling as you can get.
Nice to meet you world,
