This past Sunday was the BET Awards. It’s a celebration of black music,television and film. I used to watch the award show years ago but it doesn’t hold my interest much anymore. Mainly because the show promotes music that denigrates black women,colorism,negative images of black people and all around anti-blackness. But yesterday all over the […]

A Reblog: ‘Reverse Migration’ to Blame for the Sudden Drop in Chicago’s Black Population, Residents Head for Suburban South

Originally published on Atlanta Blackstar (tap link for original article):

n 2015, Chicago’s Cook County boasted the largest Black community of any other county in the U.S., home to a whopping 1.3 million African-American residents. The county has held the prestigious title for some time now, but a mass migration of its Black residents southward is chipping away at its impressive lead.

According to data collected by the U.S. Census Bureau, more African-Americans are choosing to move to outlying suburban communities or “warm-weather” states in the U.S. Over 9,000 Black residents left Cook County between 2014-15, bringing the total up to a staggering 35,000 African-Americans who’ve left the Chicago area since 2010, the Chicago Tribune reports. The exodus is greater than in any other metropolitan area in the country, according to the paper.

Census data shows that Chicago itself lost a total of 181,000 African-American residents between 2000 and 2010. The city’s metropolitan statistical area, defined by the census bureau, extends into the city and suburbs of Wisconsin and Indiana, which lost around 6,263 residents between 2014 and 2015.

“I have very little desire to return to the city,” 47-year-old Roosevelt Johnson told the Chicago Tribune. According to the paper, Johnson moved to Lake County, in the suburbs, 10 years ago after he was limited by the lack of resources on the South side and costly housing on the city’s north side.

“It became a rat race of having to try to get from Point A to Point B with raising our family,” he said. “Making sure everyone is in the place they need to be, despite escalating costs. It became too much for us to handle.”

Lack of opportunities and sky-high rent are just a few reasons Black residents are choosing to leave Chicago. Suburban communities are more attractive to African-Americans seeking prosperity, safe neighborhoods, and stable incomes, the Chicago Tribune reports. Southern states like Georgia have also become appealing to young Black Americans, as they have better job opportunities and affordable living spaces.

The Greater Atlanta Area saw a spike in its Black population in 2015, according to the publication. The city boasted the highest “numerical gain in Black residents of any city area” in the country, as nearly 198,031 African-American residents moved to the area, census data shows.

Brookings Institution demographer William Frey calls the phenomenon “reverse migration.” Aside from more job opportunities, Frey said Blacks in their 20’s and 30’s could be headed South for cultural reasons as well.

“Atlanta has a rising Black middle-class population, and people want to link into that labor market,” he explained. “But there’s also a cultural part to it. If you’re moving to a place where the economy is not so much better [than where you were] and you don’t have family or friends there, but there is an established Black community, that’s attractive to you.”

As African-Americans continue to move away from Chicago in search of prosperity, director of research and evaluation at the Chicago Urban League, Stephanie Schmitz Bechteler, said that their move could be problematic for families who choose to stay behind. The increased loss of a middle-class makes it harder on families who might not be able to relocate, the Chicago Tribune reports.

“You lose that healthy mix of incomes in the community, which can be problematic for the families still living there, in terms of investment and reinvestment and circulating dollars,” Schmitz Bechteler explained. “I’d never fault a family for leaving, but it does present challenges for the community they leave behind.”

ED vs. EL: Dos and Donts of Food Combining

From the Melanated Man:


As colonized people we are accustomed to the traditional pattern of eating different types of food at the same time (i.e. your customary “meat and three”) during your normal setting of breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

That is a part of the average American diet.

But have you ever considered the possibility that consuming certain foods at the same time may be DAMNING to you health? You may not realize it, but you may be practicing improper food combining techniques.

As a matter of fact, I GUARANTEE that you are not practicing the proper techniques of food combining. And don’t try to be smart and think cutting your meals down from three to one a day is saving your butt either.

If you eat Chicken Fried Rice for lunch and that’s your only meal of the day, you’re still going to be F***ED UP. Trust me.

You MUST know what foods are good to eat together REGARDLESS.

Food combining is THE practice of combining the right types of foods together for a proper digestion for your body. Digestion can be a very complex procedure and must be taken very seriously. Improper food combining can lead to some very serious problems to your body.

According to Dr. Afrika in African Holistic Health:

“Digestion is a sequence or chain reaction of enzymes that require specific strengths of alkaline and/or acid enzymes. Wrong food combining interrupts, blocks, and stops the sequence. This results in putrefaction and fermentation of foods. Wrong food combinations end the building of cells and immunity and start the destruction of cells and immunity. Wrong food combination causes colds, allergies, skin eruptions, clogged veins and arteries, constipation, diarrhea, bad breath, plaque on teeth, coated tongue, diseases, stomach gas, addiction, mood swings, and irritability. Wrong food combinations make chemicals such as vinegar, alcohol, and salts. Consequently, the person becomes addicted to the chemicals the make inside their body, crave them and use them to season foods (i.e. vinegar, salt, wine, etc.) “


Here is a chart for proper food combining:


Link: Food Combining Chart


This is a good NOT great food combining chart. For instance, for those of you who continue to partake of the animal flesh, meat SHOULD be eaten alone. If you remember from the post E.D. vs E.L.: The Importance of an Alkaline Diet , meat is acid-based so it needs acidic enzymes to be broken down. As mentioned in the chart above, meat CAN be eaten with certain vegetables that lack protein. But there is a STRONG possibility that the meat will not be properly digested anyway.

General rules to abide by, per African Holistic Health:

  • EAT MEAT ALONE, for all meat eaters still out there.
  • Never mix starches with meat (i.e. hamburgers and hotdogs, meat and potatoes/rice, etc.)
  • Never mix sugars with starches (i.e. honey, maple syrup, molasses, etc.)
  • Never mix oil with starches (i.e. fried potatoes or meats)
  • Never mix sweet fruits with green fruits (cucumbers, squash, okra)


“Well damn, there goes my soul food.”  You mean DEATH food?!

Makes all of those holidays that shouldn’t matter to BLACK FOLKS (i.e. Christmas, Thanksgiving, 4th of July, Memorial Day, etc.) less tasty and joyful, huh?

“Man why go to the family cookout/dinner and ain’t no food that I like to eat there?”

Well if you need food that KILLS you to create peaceful (and I use the term loosely) family gatherings and interactions, then what kind of family bond does your family REALLY have?

I digress.


The key to proper food combining is maintaining a proper alkaline-acid diet (please refer to E.D. vs E.L.: The Importance of an Alkaline Diet.)

Per African Holistic Health:

“An acid-alkaline imbalance occurs, cellular waste congests the tissues and toxins pollute the blood, nerves, bones, tissues and brain…Wrong combining decreases the nutritive level of the body and decreases the brain’s ability to function. The culminating effect of wrong food combination is constipation, weak immunity, mood swings, irritability, diseases, a short life span and nutritional death.”


The European/Caucasian medical standard DOES NOT EFFECTIVELY comprehend the physical and spiritual abilities of food and how it affects not only the AFRICAN BODY, but  everyone else as well.

In fact, it wasn’t meant to.It was designed that way to maintain the CURRENT PARADIGM.

Whether you realize it or not, the puppeteers who are actually pulling the strings understood/understand this science and have known about it for THOUSANDS OF YEARS. As they say in the good book, “there is nothing new under the sun.”  They have only taken (more like stolen) this information and used it against us over time.

(And for the life of me, I STILL don’t know how that is possible.)

We’re talking about warfare on a very elementary level that we take for granted every time we put something in our mouths. Elementary school is where the foundation of our learning is set. Our foundation as a people, the more we discover, is actually weaker than we realize with the more information and knowledge we obtain when it concerns just our FOOD CONSUMPTION.

But we can rebuild that foundation with the newfound information we lost (or had stolen) in the past. As the title from a previous post states,  When Consumption Changes, “The Matrix” Will Fall !!!


Let’s get to work, peoples!!!


Peace and Love to my melanated family,

The Melanated Man

A Repost: The Arrogance of This Tenn. Congressional Candidate as He Explains His Racist ‘Make America White Again’ Billboard is Appalling

Originally published by atlantablackstar.com:



A Tennessee politician is facing a storm of backlash after erecting a “Make America White Again” billboard in Polk County.

Third-party congressional candidate for Tennessee’s 3rd District, Rick Tyler tells WTVC that he erected the sign to provoke thought and to get people thinking about pre-1960s America when whites were a “super-majority.”

He wants the “Leave It to Beaver,” “Ozzie and Harriet” America of old. Tyler tells reporters that the America he grew up in was “a better America where there was far less violent time, you could leave your doors unlocked, and you didn’t have carjackings or home invasions.”

A reporter presses the politician about his racism. Without hesitation, Tyler defends his beliefs saying that his preference for white people is called ethnocentrism. Even though many have aligned his beliefs with that of presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s, the Tennessee politician calls Trump a “sellout” and a “marquee headliner” for the nation’s biggest reality TV show.

After complaints from local residents, the billboard was taken down last night. Here is one of those complaints:

“This disgusting bunch of bigotry was erected about 20 minutes from our house. The person listed, Mr. Rick Tyler, is a local business owner. Please, if you are the decent and loving people I know you to be, boycott this business,” Amy Hines Woody, a Delano, Tennessee resident wrote on Facebook.

A Reblog: Black 6th Grader Nearly Lynched at School: Officials Deny Responsibility

Originally published by  blackagendareport.com:



Submitted by Dr. Marsha Cole… on Tue, 06/21/2016 – 17:59

Black Agenda Report editor and columnist, Dr. Marsha Coleman-Adebayo

KP’s parents thought sending her to a predominately white school would provide a superior education and access to a brighter future. This decision almost cost KP her life.”

A 12-year-old girl, attending the 6th grade at a pricey predominately white school in Waco, Texas, was viciously terrorized and nearly lynched by 3 white male classmates. No charges have been filed against the boys. According to reports, the boys wrapped a swing rope around the neck of the girl, identified as “KP,” knocked her to the ground and dragged her.  “KP” was the target of on-going attacks and assaults by white classmates while she attempted to study at the predominately white Live Oak Classical School in Texas.  This young lady was placed in a hand-to-hand combat situation for which she was utterly unprepared and at the mercy of white school administrators who denied the viciousness of the attacks and refused to protect her.

In 1900, Ida B Wells, newspaper publisher, journalist and anti-lynching activist wrote:

“Our country’s national crime is lynching. It is not the creature of an hour, the sudden outburst of uncontrolled fury, or the unspeakable brutality of an insane mob.”

Ida Wells would have understood that the violence KP confronted was simply the continuation, in the 21st century, of the national “unspeakable brutality” that has laced the history of this country. The attempted murder of KP was an escalation from previous attacks that were condoned by the principal and other school officials.

According to exhibits submitted with a pending $3 million dollar lawsuit, the school’s principal, Allison Buras, in response to KP’s mother’s concerns, wrote that she “would never want children hurting one another” and that she spoke to the boys about the alleged incident.  “It sounds like he may have pushed on the back of her leg to make her leg buckle, which is something the kids sometimes do,” Buras wrote. “Rarely is that done out of meanness but more out of a desire for sport.”

Like many black parents sold on the notion of integration, KP’s parents thought sending her to a predominately white school would provide a superior education and access to a brighter future. This decision almost cost KP her life.

The chaperons did not report the incident to the police or call for medical attention; instead they asked KP to apply Vaseline to her neck and take Motrin to alleviate the pain.”

KP was one of two black students among 20 other children who participated in an overnight trip to a local ranch. Anticipating danger, KP’s mother offered to chaperon the trip but school officials denied her request, choosing instead seven other white parents.

According to reports KP was:

“standing to the side of the swing, three white boys (including one boy who often bullied her) allegedly wrapped the rope around her neck, jerked her to the ground, and didn’t help her up. The rope cut into the entire front of her neck, halfway around her back, and burned her skin.”

When KP told the chaperons about the attack, in what can only be considered complicit behavior, the chaperons did not report the incident to the police or call for medical attention; instead they asked KP to apply Vaseline to her neck and take Motrin to alleviate the pain.

With remarkable consistency, none of the white chaperons bothered to tell Sandy Rougely, KP’s mother about the attempted murder the night before.  When KP’s mother saw her walking from the bus she thought her daughter was wearing a necklace.  She “…looked like somebody had ripped her neck apart and stitched it back together.” Rougely, immediately called an ambulance and took KP to the hospital. Rougely reported that the principal was “shocked when she learned they were going to the emergency room.”

Doctors working in the emergency room, however, thought KP’s injuries were apparently so severe that police were notified and an investigation launched.

The refusal to view KP as a human being continues. Jeremy Counseller, a board member for the school, told the Dallas Morning News “Live Oak takes the safety of its students seriously and is saddened that one of its family suffered an unfortunate accident and injury.” Counseller has described what happened as an “accident.”

The principal was “shocked when she learned they were going to the emergency room.”

This ridiculous babble shows the utter contempt for black life and the lives of our children who attempt to negotiate with white supremacy, begging to be allowed to sit or be miseducated at the same table.

In the face of the attempted lynching of 12 year old child and other young people engaged in daily hand-to-hand combat in white schools it is appropriate to remind ourselves of a brighter and more sustainable future for the African community in the US.

In 1966, The Black Panther Party (BPP) proposed a 10 Point Program of liberation. This program and its goals are still worthy of consideration. On the issue of education, the BPP Program stated:

“We want education for our people that exposes the true nature of this decadent American society. We want education that teaches us our true history and our role in the present day society.”

One of the lessons that we can learn from this tragedy is the ultimate importance of controlling the institutions in our community that preserve the integrity of our lives and provide an environment where our children can be free.

A Poem: “#@ NO CHARGE!”

To live as civilized human beings…

We have to pay the power bill to have light for our home, but the Creator gave us the Sun for that #@ NO CHARGE!

We have to pay the water bill for quality H2O to drink and bathe in, but the Creator gave us plenty of that before its contamination #@ NO CHARGE!

We have to pay the gas bill to keep warm and cook our food, but the Creator gave us the know-how to create fire without the use of man-made chemicals #@ NO CHARGE!

We have to pay the car note to get from Point A to Point B, but the Creator gave us two legs and two feet at birth to accomplish that feat #@ NO CHARGE!

We have to pay the cell phone bill to keep in touch with one another, but the Creator gave us our antenna-like nappy hair to communicate with each other and Mother Nature #@ NO CHARGE!

We have to pay the cable bill to have entertainment to create enjoyment for our lives, but the Creator gave us the gift of MELANIN which enhances the OUTER and INNER BEING during our time on this planet #@ NO CHARGE!

So the question is…what are we paying for?

A Reblog: Hillary Clinton: Something Wicked This Way Comes

Hillary Clinton: Something Wicked This Way Comes

Submitted by Solomon Comissiong on Tue, 06/14/2016 – 19:01

by Solomon Comissiong

If Trump is the “Boogey Man,” then Hillary Clinton is evil in 3D.”

The 2016 (s) election season continues to travel around, much like a traveling circus replete with a xenophobic clown and a wicked witch. What’s more pathetic than this fact, is the fact that there are millions upon millions of people supporting these two candidates. The United States electoral season may be a sham and a joke, however what does that tell any intellectually honest person about the followers that vote for these candidates?

Donald Trump (the xenophobic clown) has a large following of racist white nationalists who crawled out from under their slimy rocks the moment he began spewing his racist rhetoric. He was like the pied piper for racists. However, make no bones about it, these people were racist and xenophobic a long time before Trump came on to the scene. They are hoping that a Trump presidency would bring about a return to some of this country’s more white supremacist policies of years past. Many of Trump’s supporters would like to see an updated “Jim Crow” for the new millennium. This is perhaps what they envision when they hear Donald Trump say, “Make America great again…” However, Hillary Clinton’s supporters are a menagerie of the misguided, in combination with the white liberals who embrace their race-based privilege.

“Many of Trump’s supporters would like to see an updated ‘Jim Crow’ for the new millennium.”

For those who truly believe Hillary Clinton is a candidate committed to bringing about peace and diplomacy–think again. If you believe the Democratic Party is a party of peace and progressive change–think again. If you wish to vote for someone evil who adores war and destroying human life, by way of wars of aggression, then Hillary Clinton is your candidate.

Hillary Clinton was one of the biggest orchestrators of the vicious bombing campaign and war on Libya. She, like Barack Obama, knew exactly what they were doing when they ordered airstrikes on Libya and supported the CIA financing the terrorist rebels on the ground. It was these same terrorist that massacred supporters of Gaddafi, including many black Africans. She is the witch who cackled upon hearing the news Muammar Gaddafi was brutally murdered by those terrorist rebels that the US government supported and financed.

Hillary Clinton instinctively voted for the imperialist war in Iraq. She spoke of the option of potentially bombing Iran. She has played a significant role in the continuation of Haiti being used as a sweatshop for Wall Street and US finance capital. She supported her husband’s move to complete a coup that overthrew the democratically elected president of Haiti, Jean Bertrand Aristide.

“Do not vote for her simply because you think she is a better option than the white supremacist, Donald Trump.”

Hillary Clinton is also the same vile human that referred to African American youth as “Super Predators.” Her mantra should be, “something wicked this way comes…” Do not vote for her simply because you think she is a better option than the white supremacist, Donald Trump. Do not vote for her because you believe she is the lesser of two evils…she is evil, plain and simple. She has a forked-tongue, from which she consistently spews forth lies and deceptions.

Hillary Clinton has done what many think Donald Trump might do as president. She has supported right wing deportation policies of immigrants south of the United States’ manufactured borders. She has started and supported imperialist military campaigns that have destroyed countless lives.

If Trump is the “Boogey Man,” then Hillary Clinton is evil in 3D. She is real and her actions are wicked. Do not vote for her simply because she is a woman. There have been many evil women throughout history, just as there have been evil and wicked men. She is not pro-woman. She is a pro-white elitist woman. Think about the masses of women her polices have destroyed in places like Iraq, Libya and Afghanistan. What about them, or does it make some people happy to say they voted for a woman regardless of her policies? Many made the same mistake in voting for Obama, thinking he was “change you can believe in.” Instead, his slogan should have been, “beliefs you can change.” He bombed at least six countries during his presidency and executed (pun not intended) a deadly drone policy on a massive scale, much more effective than George W. Bush’s.

“She is not pro-woman. She is a pro-white elitist woman.”

Vote for neither Hillary Clinton nor Trump. Do not vote because you are scared of the other candidate. Act and/or vote your conscience. If you seek peace and a better society within the USA, and globally, then that will not come about by voting for either Trump or Clinton. It would be far better to abstain from voting than to live with the fact that you voted for someone hell-bent on destroying human life.

Consider voting for the Green Party or support truly revolutionary candidates who are not only pro-peace but are anti-war. Vote for candidates that are about revolutionary and progressive change. Help support or start movements aimed at ensuring that the next generations inherit a much better society, one predicated on peace, justice, equity and humanitarian values.

A Reblog: America: The Land of Terrorists and Massacres

America: The Land of Terrorists and Massacres

by BAR editor and columnist Dr. Marsha Coleman-Adebayo

Submitted by Dr. Marsha Cole… on Tue, 06/14/2016 – 19:24

“Historical records remind us that the murders in Orlando, unfortunately, do not constitute the largest domestic mass murders.”

The updated 2016 ROOTS historical chronicle finally got it right. Africans have resisted European/American terrorism from the moment it reared its ugly head to present day struggle against state sponsored police murders of African peoples. The current version of ROOTS reminds us that beheadings, lynchings, rapes, kidnappings, selling children, working and boiling people to death did not start with ISIL – these perverted and psychopathic practices constituted the building blocks of the American empire.  The carnage in Orlando bleeds our hearts with the senseless murder of many innocent lives.  Our rapacious thirst for lethal weapons spells future dooms. Yet, we march on desensitized to the violence and injustice in our nation and world.

We seem to be truly bewildered when blood flows on the streets of America. Often, some of these incidents of late, can contextually be linked to murderous US foreign policy adventures in the Middle East. Malcolm X would have noted that US foreign policies have resulted in “chickens coming home to roost.” The ability to contain violence in foreign theaters has become an unattainable goal for the Empire. Therefore, everyday citizens are now targets of combat. Whether the latest mass murderer is insane or not, what is clear is that US citizens must decide whether they will allow murder and plunder across the globe to continue in their names. And, perhaps, more importantly, whether they are prepared to accept the consequences.  Certainly one does not want to wade into the quagmire of comparing tragedies but to completely ignore the validity of other massacres and the loss of other lives seems to compound the tragedy.

“Malcolm X would have noted that US foreign policies have resulted in ‘chickens coming home to roost.’”

The news media has framed the latest massacre in Orlando as the largest mass murder in US history. Some members of the media with a measure of intellectual integrity will add that the Orlando Massacre is the largest “post 911.” Regardless, human beings lost their lives and communities are in mourning.  However, historical records remind us that the murders in Orlando, unfortunately, do not constitute the largest domestic mass murders.  This narrative proposed by corporate media is in search of a public willing to digest a sanitized and less-than thoughtful version of history that conforms with the simplistic but dangerous notion of American exceptionalism. The truth is much less flattering.  As we mourn the loss of young life in Florida, let us also mourn the massacre of thousands of young unarmed African men and women who lose their lives almost daily at the hands of police and entire Black communities struggling to escape the violence of white supremacy.

We must not forget the East St Louis Massacres of 1917 described as the worst race and labor violence in the 20th century with casualties ranging between 40 and 200 deaths.

In the spring of 1917, Blacks escaping from the terror of the South were arriving in St. Louis at the rate of 2,000 per week. White union workers were determined to stop Blacks from competing for job in the trades by refusing to allow Africans membership in trade unions. White corporate leaders, taking advantage of cheap and competitive labor viewed Africans as scab workers to stabilize and maintain low wages for whites. These two reactionary views of Black labor from the perspective of the white working class and white corporate interests formed the perfect storm that ignited the conditions that led to scores of Black deaths in the East St. Louis Massacre.

“The ability to contain violence in foreign theaters has become an unattainable goal for the Empire.”

Following a meeting on May 28th in which rumors spread that Blacks and whites were fraternizing, 3,000 white men marched into East St. Louis and attacked Black men and women. In a separate incident, white vigilantes burned entire sections of the city and shot inhabitants as they escaped the fire. In William Heaps 1970 book Target of Prejudice: The Negro, In Riot, USA 1765-1970, he notes: “members of the white community claimed that Southern Negros deserved a genuine lynching” and a number of African-Americans were lynched during the white terror attacks.

There was also the 1921 Tulsa, Oklahoma massacre in which whites attacked one of the wealthiest African communities in the US.  These vilgilantes over the course of 16 hours burned private property, including a Black hospital, and injured over 800 people. Instead of police arresting white rioters they detained and arrested over 6,000 black residents. 10,000 Africans were left homeless and 35 city blocks destroyed by fire.  Officials reported that 39 Blacks were murdered but other estimates report between 55 to 300 people murdered.

All massacres are horrific, from Orlando, East St. Louis, My Lai, Vietnam, Wounded Knee to Oklahoma.  The latest massacre, however ‘could’ provide an opportunity to understand the nexus between US foreign policy adventures that plunder and violate countries in search of natural resources and US domestic racist actions that trigger staggering incidence of murder and violence on a scale nearly unfathomable outside America.

When Consumption Changes, “The Matrix” Will Fall

From the Melanated Man:

I was reading a some comments on a YouTube video I was watching recently. I came across a comment stating that essentially there were no true blacks leaders living to bring about change because if there were, they would already be dead! All the so-called black leaders are agents!

I do agree that most, if NOT ALL, of the black leaders promoted on the MAINSTREAM level by the ESTABLISHMENT are not our TRUE leaders. They are definitely PROXIES.

But there are many leaders who are underground that are truly concerned about the well-being and liberation of BLACK-MELANATED PEOPLE, such as Dr. Phil Valentine, Bobby Hemmitt, Llaila Afrika, Dr. Sebi, Dick Gregory, the recently-deceased Dr. Delbert Blair, and many others. There were other leaders who have passed on who were not as well-known as the Malcolm Xs and Martin Luther Kings  (the very few MAINSTREAM leaders who were NOT PROXIES) of their day and since who were just as impactful if NOT more.

John Henrik Clarke, Dr. Yosef Ben-Jochannan, Chancellor Williams, Dr. Amos Wilson, the list goes on and on.

You think, ” With all these leaders around to help bring about our LIBERATION, why hasn’t it happened yet?”

Somewhere along the line we, the rest of the BLACKS, bought into the LIE OF INTEGRATION.

Our CONSCIOUSNESS changed, which id exhibited through our CONSUMPTION.

When the majority of US decides to change OUR CONSUMPTION on ALL FRONTS, that is when we will finally rise.

When we eat DEATH, we stay DEAD.

When we entertain ourselves to a REALITY that is NOT our own, we become EMPTY IMITATIONS.

When we work to build another man’s FORTUNE, we SUCK ourselves dry of the ENERGY needed to FIGHT and IMPROVE OUR OWN PLIGHT!

We need to be the leaders. It’s not reasonable or fair to depend on one man or woman to lead us when that load should be shared amongst the MULTITUDE, especially when that MULTITUDE’S CONSUMPTION is not up to par.

And personally, I understand if there is hesitancy in those who wish to come out and lead because of that reason.


Are we really ready to change OUR CONSUMPTION, people?


Note to my followers: I’m going to cut back on my posts INDEFINITELY so I can focus on learning more knowledge to share  with you all, and HOPEFULLY start working on my book “The Black Anamoly.” I have had this on the burner for about a year but I’m ready to get started now. Mostly I will be posting videos, articles, re-blogs, and an occasional written post if the mood strikes me for the time being. So please don’t go away. I’m recalibrating myself at the moment.


Peace and Love to my melanated family,
