More About the Author
My government name is Byron Crawford, though many people on the Internets call me Bol, which is Swahili for "The Gulliest One." As you can see, I take no small amount of pride in my African heritage. When I'm not working like a Hebrew slave at a series of soul-crushing minimum wage jobs, I devote most of my free time to doing community outreach with black and Latino youth. Nullus.
I run a website -- perhaps you've heard of it -- called ByronCrawford.com: The Mindset of a Champion, in which I educate today's youth on some of the most important issues of our time, including racism, homophobia, healthy living, respect for women, tolerance for religion, and who really runs the music business.
A committed feminist, I donate as much money as I can afford to, and sometimes more, to underprivileged female college students in a small, rural town called Sauget, Illinois. Because as far as I'm concerned, it's one thing to talk about it on the Internet, but it's a whole other thing to put your money where your mouth is. Literally.
I've lived in and around St. Louis, MO my entire life, except for a five year period I spent in Chicken Switch, MO. I hold a bachelor's degree in business administration, with a concentration in marketing, from East Bumblef*ck State University, the Harvard of the Midwest, as well as a certificate in food safety I earned while working at a White Castle.
In addition to rap music, I'm also a big fan of the album New Miserable Experience by the Gin Blossoms. It even says so in that album's Wikipedia entry. (Note that I didn't add that myself.)
