Afrobeat

Greetings Good People, In a previous post, I discussed why I no longer listen to the radio and why I have become more selective with the type of music that I choose to support; most people would call it mental digestion, I just call it being allergic to ignorance. However, one of my mentors from…

Book Review

“No true liberal should feel any resentment at the growth of black consciousness. Rather, all true liberals should realize that the place for their fight for justice is within their white society. The liberals must realize that they themselves are oppressed if they are true liberals and therefore they must fight for their own freedom and not…

Time Machine

Do you see that SWAGnificent baby boy in the sandbox? That’s yours truly. As a continuation of my previous post, I couldn’t just reminisce on one visual of my childhood and not look at the others. So let’s just go back in time for a little bit.   #Mood My favorite cartoon in the history…

Let’s Talk Wrastling!

Ah, childhood memories.   Greetings All, That was the intro to the Playstation 1 video game, WWF Smackdown! 2: Know Your Role. And it still gets me hyped like an 11-year-old boy every time I see it. I’ve been on somewhat of a nostalgia kick ever since watching Saban’s Power Rangers last week, and it was…

Power Rangers

Greetings Everyone, I had a chance to check out the long-awaited reboot, Saban’s Power Rangers, and I wanted to provide you all with a review. Before I get started, take a look at the following trailer if you haven’t seen it. Directed by Dean Israelite, Saban’s Power Rangers stars Dacre Montgomery, Naomi Scott, RJ Cyler,…

First Comes Love, Then Comes…Marriage?

Greetings Good People, That was a clip from Eddie Murphy’s 1987 stand-up comedy film, Raw. Although it was meant for comic relief, there was some truth to what he said. As a society, we tend to romanticize marriage by illustrating one’s union based on their wedding reception and honeymoon photos, without reminding ourselves of the fact…

Words From The Wise: Dr. Joy Degruy

“We’re looking at 246 years of American chattel slavery, and it’s very comfortable. And I think, to some degree, people can say, ‘you can’t have 246 years of trauma and expect that nothing happened’; especially when that trauma was followed by more trauma; especially given the fact that there was never a point of healing….

NAS

Ask me if I’m trying to kick knowledge? Nah, I’m trying to kick the sh*t you need to learn, though. That ether, that sh*t that make your soul burn slow.   Greetings All, I came across a YouTube video entitled Hip Hop vs. Mumble Rap, and I encourage everyone, particularly the connoisseurs of Hip Hop…

Mental Emancipation

Take the meanest and most restless nigger, strip him of his clothes in front of the remaining male niggers, the female, and the nigger infant, tar and feather him, tie each leg to a different horse faced in opposite directions, set him afire and beat both horses to pull him apart in front of the…

Immigration vs. Black America

“You’re going to have this massive influx of immigrants into the country that are better equipped—they don’t have your legacies, they don’t have your disadvantages, they are walking across the border, they’re going to get a free lunch, they don’t have to pay dues. But you got public policies in this country that are equating them…

Native Allies

Greetings All, The gentlemen that you see in the feature image of this post are Ute tribe members Dick Charlie, a full-blooded Native American, and John Taylor, an African American Buffalo soldier who married into the tribe. Throughout this past week, I’ve been doing some research on the Dakota Access Pipeline controversy and it’s effect…

Mind, Body, and Soul

Greetings Good People, I’ve recently made a conscious decision not to listen to the radio anymore, as well as be more selective with which artists I choose to support. Not only is the majority of mainstream music terrible, but I always feel like my IQ drops by the time a song is over. Maybe it’s because I’m…
