"With great power comes great responsibility"
Well I feel it is my responsibility to bring knowledge to the place I work.
I had situation that pissed me off one day. I am reading “Sellout” by Randall Kennedy and I have read his other book “Nigger” and decided to request the library buy one of his other books “Race, Crime and the Law”……..and was turned down by the branch manager I work with.
This racist honkey basically has no right and could get in trouble for turning down book request….based on racial basis But he worded it in a way that could be written off as “library priority”
“Well I’m not ordering this book because it is more of a book for an Academic library, you can have it mailed from another library for a fee or if you feel you still want to push it maybe you might want to go the main branch”
My response “Ok I’ll go to the main branch!”
The book is another unthreatening piece of literature by Kennedy and the only reason he wants to fight the book is because……..it’s about Race Crime and THE LAW, and the last thing this crakkker wants me to do is be study the LAW.
But he is already too late for that because I am light years ahead of him on all those subjects.
Well I went to the Main branch this past Monday and went to the few “Souljahs” I know that work there. Gave them the story and they sent in my request………….well.
I was set on fire after that because their words to me were “If you want us to order ANYTHING just bring it to us we understand what you are trying to do.
So I went and set out on ordering a few DVD’s that will set the library a blaze with knowledge once they come in.
SANKOFA, 500 YEARS LATER: DIRECTORS CUT, THE SPOOK WHO SAT BY THE DOOR, AND A FEW OTHER BLACK PANTHER FILMS on sale at amazon.com.
I also put with them the list of available locations on Amazon in which they can purchase them….so they won’t be able by any means to say they couldn’t find them (if they dared to try)
I think I’m really starting to love my role at this branch……..The (REVOLUTIONARY) Library Vigilante…….
