Hello to all my fellow students at Prince George’s Community College (PGCC)!
My name is Aladdin Glasco and I am running for the position of Student Trustee for the 2023-2024 academic year. As a passionate and dedicated member of the PGCC community, I believe that I have the skills and dependability necessary to effectively represent your voices and positively impact our PGCC experience into the next year and beyond.
The Will To Change by Bell Hooks explains how brothers and father are trained. From sacrifice to rage, men are born in a cage of self-oppression, emotional castration, and smothered light. The collateral damage to friends and family gives advantage to manipulation and exploitation, out of sight.
An ode to The Oracle as important is rhetorical. Knowledge of love and probability by way of perception and common empathy, is a lesson in déjà vu, experiencing one moment as if two. Imparting kinship from the source, as if self harm has no recourse, but to self terminate as a task in reverence of coexistence unmasked. Subservient to the each other, as mother, father, sister, and brother. We are one, through and through. There is no me. There is no you. We simply do what we do to try to be free of the matrix of lies that make us live separately.
