Blessing comes from your connection with the Creator, who whispers and guides you when you are quiet enough to listen. It also comes from yourself, when you take the time to get to what's important to you, love yourself fully, and embrace your natural gifts and talents. #stayWoke #standforsomething #liwi68 #liwi #liwi1968 #johncarlos

“When I die, it should say ‘John Carlos was a man. Period.’ No more, no less. All I ever wanted to be was my father’s son, no more, no less. When I give speeches, I say ‘I’m just like you. I ain’t no icon. I’m no superstar. Only difference between me and you is I got in touch with the man in the mirror. I know who I am.’” (((+))) Respect the names support the movement.#tommiesmith #peternorman #johncarlos

Today marks a landmark day in the history of protest in sports.
.

In the morning of October 16th at the 1968 Mexico City Olympics,Tommie Smith captured the 200m in a new World record of 19.83 seconds, with Australian Peter Norman finishing second and John Carlos finishing third.
.

On the medal podium a salute was made by Smith and Carlos with black gloves,, with the heads raised, facing the flags, shoeless but wearing black socks, representing black poverty.
.

All three athletes wore Olympic Project for Human Rights (OPHR) badges, after Norman, a critic of Australia's former White Australia Policy, expressed empathy with the ideals of Smith and Carlos.

.

International Olympic President Avery Brundage, of the USA deemed it a political statement unfit for the apolitical Olympic Games.
.

Brundage, the IOC president at the 1936 Berlin Olympics ordered Smith and Carlos suspended from the US team and banned from the Olympic Village.
The US Olympic Committee refused and Brundage threatened to ban the entire US team.
Eventually Smith and Carlos were banned from the Games.
.

They were booed by the crowd.
The protest was the brainchild of Professor Harry Edwards, sociologist, who formed the Olympic Project for Human Roghts who advocated a boycott by blacks of the Games unless four conditions were met:
.

1. The withdrawal of South Africa and Rhodesia form the Games

2. Restoration of Muhammad Ali's World Heavyweight Boxing title

3. IOC President Brundage to step down

4. Hiring more black assistants on the USA team.
Smith and Carlos received death threats and found it difficult to obtain employment.

Humility is a quality that I always look for in others and I believe it’s one of the greatest characteristics to have. No matter what may be going on around you, it’s always important to stay humble and true to yourself!...Still waters run deep, empty vessels make the most sound. #STAYWOKE

Individuals who are positive in their thoughts always tend to look upon the brighter side of life. With their faces turned toward the sunshine, they attempt to see the good, even in the bad. Such individuals habitually think thoughts of a positive nature and they are a blessing to the world. Learn how to do well by doing good.

“Stay Woke” is a phrase that was meant to encourage critical thinking about social issues and injustices. An Internet slang term often used to demonstrate the need for awareness of an issue, particularly those relating to social justice issues. The term is also used ironically in a similar manner to Wake Up, organization and the masses. .

Rise & Grind - If GOD woke you up this POSITIVE Thursday morning, BE productive. The life quote for today is..."There are plenty of difficult obstacles in your path. Don’t allow yourself to become one of them."-Ralph Marston
.
.
It is easy to go through life going through the motions, but any great accomplishment requires a goal, and a plan of action. Most of the time we forget that nothing comes without some work. Of course some things we desire require more patience, more preparation, or work than others, but losing faith and giving up should never be and option. You see we always think that our desires should come from somewhere or something, and we sometimes forget that every journey requires one or more steps, and keeping your eyes and ears open to the opportunities that will help to prepare or lead you to what you ultimately want in your life.

Let me first say LIWI is the acronym for LIVE IT. WEAR IT. We represent freedom of expression. In today’s society with all the drama and violence going on, we pride ourselves in empowering our community. #STAYWOKE

Being woke is not about being right, saying “down with the man” or winning an argument. It’s about accurately understanding someone's experience and embracing paradigm shifts for the global progression of people. By default, we all project problematic ideologies that reinforce the social ills of our society. As a result, we are all a part of the problem and must unlearn what we have learned to be a part of the solution. With that being said, there is no room for ego in the realm of academia. It prohibits proper intellectual growth and development. Woke(ness) necessitates the ability to consistently check ones own ego, privilege and perspective. So what do we do with new awareness? Elderly people always say, “when you know better, you do better.” It's not good enough to just know. Those who are woke must engage themselves in ways that actively challenge the world we live in. We must create safe spaces for same-gender-loving communities; we must be open to learning about the transgender experience, acknowledge race and gender discrepancies, victim blaming and all the other messed up ish. The saying is cool, the shirts are dope, but we must do more than say or wear the expression “be woke.” In the famous words of Dap from the movie School Daze, “Waaaaaake Uuuuup!” -Raven Cras

I just wanted to say thank you to Sheridan College for presenting a CCAA championship ring to my fellow teammates and I this past Friday. Friday night was amazing! All of the memories I had playing basketball 27 years ago, came back instantly. Never would I have envisioned playing for such an established basketball program with a winning tradition. I just saw myself as a basketball player from Scarborough tring to make it as an visual artist.
.

Catching up with the players and coaches and reminiscing about what we did as a team, naturally brought me back to those moments. The bond we have as brothers will never be broken. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of this journey #salute
