Looks like fun.
When these right-wing, neo-con, smart-bombing- wherever, war-mongers, ask us, "(B)uddy, what about you guys killing each other?!.." Civilized Savage gods (CSG) is dedicated to being part of the solution. Of course Black Lives Matter, but we (righteous/sane people) need to do our collective all to put God's Presence into that split second of evil indiscretion. We know for an Actual Fact that God is Well Able to get between that finger and that trigger- even when that trigger is dis-porportionately Black or Brown ("Super-Predators", "Urban Youth", "Gang Bangers" "Thugs"...) Civilized Savage gods (CSG) pledge to do our humble part to help curb this "epidemic" of sickening gun violence in America...Straight talk, brah, we're pointing with dirty hands. A real man always thinks of the long-term implications of his actions. They say, shooting incidents have decreased by 28% through the first two months of 2018 in Chicago!! .. Homicide rate in New York for 2017 was lowest in 70 years!! Los Angeles homicides down 6% in 2017 too..Keep prayin' it safe.. NO MORE, "US KILLING US.." PASS IT ON, PLEASE NO CURSING/ ALL FAITHS (brief video clip) STOP THE KILLING!! Produced by CSG Music Group (#csgmusicgroup..[email protected])
