sweetnessphotography I know this is a poor quality photo but I find it fascinating, because of a little thing called #melanin. (I'm curious as to if there are any other photos with that hashtag!) I was born with light blue eyes and very faint freckles but due to being a fair-skinned #summergirl I have had a lot of sun exposure through the years and this is one of the results. Prominent #freckles and #greeneyes. I'll probably have wrinkles when I get older though. :-( 2h

engineer_poet_intj REPOST FROM @black.sappho: "#daquan #blackman #blackwoman #AfricanAmerican #melanin #consciousness #afrocentric" My one and only Daquan post. Read the message and don't fall victim to the other memes so called "comedy". Wake up from that mental slavery ship. No one wants to free someone who makes them a good profit or who serves a good purpose/use to them. Stop the self hate and support memes like this that is representing Pro-Blackness. #wakeupandpayattention #willielynchsyndrome 2h

savvy_raseshat I wondered. We've known Medusa as the Greek snake-haired monster turning men into stone. She is originally a North African/(Libya) serpent goddess. Medusa translates to "sovereign female wisdom". Also known as Neith. Snakes representing wisdom I see where they get the snake hair...BUT originally ger hair was dredlocks. Her hair had nothing to do with peoples fear of her. It was actually her face. She was depicted as wearing a veil and seeing her face meant seeing the foretelling of your death. Medusa is the dark goddess of the past, present and future, death and rebirth.

alexwill64 I take it that this proverb is pointing at pride. Selflessness and confidence is expansion of self, denoting growth; selfishness and arrogance is inflation of ego, denoting pride. The way to differentiate expansion of self from inflation of ego is assessing one's humility--it is there or does it lack? Furthermore, what is your meaning of identity? For if you tend to identify excessively with material objects and superficial constructs, then pride bound to prevail; however, if you realize an identity founded on virtues, values, and or a higher power, then your identity will be based on humility. If a lion knows itself to be a lion, does it always have to roam around roaring at everything on the savannah? "The loudest one in the room is the weakest one in the room." Yet, this is what the proverb spoke to me; your interpretation may be totally different. Asé.

viciouslyinane (An old report I was reading)

Blacks will have more money to spend on goods and services, according to a recent report.

The State of the African-American Consumer Report found that black buying power is projected to reach $1.1 trillion by 2015, The Louisiana Weekly reports.

The study, which focuses on black spending, media habits and consumer trends, reported an increase in the amount of blacks attending college or earning a degree to 44 percent for men and 53 percent for women. It also found an increase in the number of African American households earning $75,000 or higher by almost 64 percent.

Other notable findings in the report include:

With a buying power of nearly 1 trillion annually, if Blacks were a country, they'd be the 16th largest country in the world

Blacks make more shopping trips than all other groups, but spend less money per trip. Blacks in higher income brackets, also spend 300 percent more in higher end retail grocers more than any other high-income household. "Unfortunately, when African-Americans make money, we spend it. We don't use it to invest or produce," he toldBlackAmericanweb.com. "When we get our tax refund, we go straight to the store." (PROGRESS JUST TO REGRESS?)
