So Honest Media would like to give an online salute to YouTube personalities De’arra and Ken. De’arra and Ken are a couple…

9/13/96

On September 13, 1996, the world lost a Hip Hop Legend. Tupac Amaru Shakur. I’ve been a fan of his music and talent since childhood, so it’s only right that I pay my respects on this day. 2pac was a rapper, actor, activist, poet, and revolutionary. His career started at age 17 when his family…

The Tulsa Real Estate Fund

Greetings Everyone, The topic of sovereignty within my community has been discussed throughout this blog in previous posts, and I wanted to continue highlighting viable solutions that will get us there. Voicing our complaints without adhering to the blueprints set aside by our ancestors and Freedom Fighters is tone-deaf at this point, especially since the…

Words From The Wise: Shahrazad Ali

Greetings Folks, I just finished reading a very informative book by Shahrazad Ali, entitled The Blackman’s Guide to Understanding the Blackwoman, and I had to share my thoughts. Knowledge and wisdom is not always measured by book learning. The life experience and raising of consciousness is much more important to the Blackman because he is…

The Sanctuary Juice Bar

Greetings All, Throughout this blog, I’ve discussed how important it is to maintain a proper diet by living a more holistic lifestyle.

Dalits: The Black Untouchables

As I’ve explained in a previous post, African people, globally, share a similar narrative when it comes to systemic disenfranchisement.

So after reading about how African descendants in India are being treated, I knew I had to share the…

Greetings Good People, Have you ever played Call of Duty, Metal Gear Solid, or Halo? If you’re a gamer, you may be familiar with those games and their premise, which is usually centered around a tactical war zone.

WINNIE

Greetings Folks, I was YouTube browsing, as usual, when I came across a documentary about one of the most iconic political figures in history—Winnie Mandela. This 2017 film, entitled WINNIE, takes a look into the freedom struggles of South Africans against Apartheid as well as Mandela’s rise and fall from grace. Her fearlessness and dedication…

Tainted H2O

The current condition of the planet has been discussed throughout this blog, but I recently decided to do more research on our water supply here in the United States. What I found was very disturbing. We’re being poisoned, folks; there’s no need to sugarcoat it. The water that we drink, cook with, and bathe in…

Local Spotlight

Greetings All, In a previous post, I advised that I would start paying more attention to local politics; namely in my area but also around the country. So I wanted to spotlight a local politician in the state of Florida who’s running for Governor. Meet Andrew Gillum. Andrew Gillum is running for Governor to rebuild…
