My reflective thoughts on Donald Murray's "All writing is Autobiography", are easily aligned with this work as it continuously offered textual examples to the reader from fiction and non-fictional viewpoints, as to the fundamental notion that all writing is autobiography. Murray without a doubt creates an argument about the affect a person's experience shape the outcome of any work a writer may produce, in which I agree.

You have heard the saying, “It’s not what you know but who you know?” Well, Blackman, certain doors are closed to you in life. However, Prince-Hall Freemasonry will show you how to unlock and open these doors, which will in turn, allow you to receive more "light" (i.e., gain knowledge of how the world really works and more about what has been concealed from you as discussed here). Masonry shows you the things that are hidden from you, yet hidden in plain sight, if only someone will take the blinders from your eyes so that you can really see what's going on (kind of like a racehorse) and see the game being plaid on Black People and humanity as a whole. Blackman, you have been programmed by your former slave-masters to have tunnel-vision and to look only in one direction (to White

Tammany Hall, a powerful political organization in New York that virtually controlled politics throughout the state of New York from 1789 until the 1970s, had other ideas and asked Osborne if he would run for lieutenant governor, but he declined. Eventually, a compromise candidate – John A. Dix – got the nomination and was elected. Dix wanted Osborne to be part of his administration and offered him the position of Forest, Fish and Game Commissioner.
