Skin-folk: We gotta find balance; figure out a way to firmly and fairly critique our brothers and sisters without completely alienating them from the tribe. Passionately disagree without being blantantly disrespectful. Some of our skin-folk are certainly lost; their cultural compass just ain't working. However, some of these folk are sincerely trying to help our greater cause-- Jim Brown, Ray Lewis, Mike Vick, Steve Harvey etc. all have some level of legitimate concern for our people, they are seeking remedies in ways that appear to be counterproductive. We can't repeat the same historical errors: Du Bois vs. Booker T Washington, Garvey vs. Du Bois, Malcolm vs. Martin etc.-- we simply don't have the time or luxury to beat up on each other when there is a greater threat in our immediate presence. Strongly criticized but don't crucify. There are enough people out here who offer no excuse for hating us, so why do we need to find excuses to hate each other. #Black #Africa #African #Race #blacklove #panafrican #MalcolmX #MLK #MarcusGarvey #BookerTWashington #DuBois #WillieLynch #Life #Love #Blackamerica #Hate #Love

Powerful! While we are all falling victim to the delicious distraction of low hanging fruit-- Trump, NFL and Anthems--this video ignores those ignorant distractions, and redirects our eyes back on the prize. I am so proud of Kaep and the sacrifice, but be clear: I don't want to hear Kaep's name anymore unless it's attached to discussions and actions related to police brutality, mass incarceration, education/employment disparity, housing discrimination, gerrymandering, gentrification and helping some of our lost, hopeless, neglected, angry, depressed young black males/females. #Kaep #NFL #Protest #Kaepernick #Police #murder #massincarseration #racism #injustice #america #black #african #anthem #anthems #gerrymandering #gentrification

Congrats to Tori Bowie for winning Gold(100m) at the World Championships in London. Been following this beautiful beautiful woman's career for years. Her history of resilience/perseverance is amazing. Hard work works! #London #world #worldchampionship #gold #100m #sprint #sprinter #race #worldchampionships #track #trackandfield #beauty #beautiful #talented #america #American #black #sista

Much Respect!. This dude has known celebrity since the 8th grade. With inadequate parenting, he still successful navigated all the pitfalls that so often our young athletes fall victim to. I've not always been a fan of Bron's total game, especially his game in the clutch. However, after last year's series with Golden State, I am now an officially fan of Bron's entire game, I was already a huge fan of how he's always taken care of business off the court. This dude is truly winning in every sense of the word. #Lebron #Bron #family #rolemodel #blackman #nba #nbaplayoffs #espn #abc #sport #sports #basketball #kingjames #nike #LBJ #tnt #cavs #Cavaliers #Life #Cleveland

Lol! Metaphor 4 Life. Welcome back Marshawn, my African brother! This comment may seem unnecessarily raw and graphic, but it's actually the intersection where raw meets real; especially in football. #life #lifequotes #nfl #football #sports #sport #heart #tough #raw #reality #realshit #marshawnlynch

There will be good days, even great days; however, according to the standards of reality, there will be difficult, barley bearable days too. Those L's are promised, they are there for a purpose. Understand what got you there, what actually you are going through and what it will ultimately take to get you through it. The purpose of pain--physical or emotional- is not to hurt you, but rather to alert you, to make you aware of unhealthy choices and movements. The human condition's reflex is attempting to turn off our pain, to try to tune it out; however, growth comes from tuning in to our adversity, aligning ourselves with understanding, not ignoring. #life #love #human #humanity #black #white #reality #america #world #pain #hurt #africa #african

Respect for this brother, and the young men that were involved in fight. They could have ignored or insulted the brother, but they listened, which provided them with an opportunity to learn. Our young people are our responsibility, period!. It would be nice if there were more policies and community support in place to help us raise these young people, but at the end of the day, the responsibility resides with the parent and the community. #worldstar #violence #genocide #blacks #African #Prisons #jails #responsibility #family #community #life #listen #learn #love

Great message, on a great t-shirt! Gotta get this t-shirt! Live the message, wear the truth, like a tattoo. Black Bourgeois, speaking truth to power. #life #love #race #racism #classism #sexism #privilege #supremacy

If this image simply makes you upset, allows you only an emotional high, then, unfortunately, the proper impact was not made. There should be an overwhelming appreciation for the courage, the sacrifice, this young brotha offered to his people. Our anger is understood and justified, but it has to be demonstrated through constructive, unapologetic actions. We must stop ranting and raving about what company and what person we are going to boycott, and just do it: mobilize family, friends, community and then boycott with your wallet. #boycott #sitin #racist #race #racism #blackmonth #blackhistorymonth #courage #sacrifice #kkk

This picture explains why I appreciate this brother, this family, this presidency, so much. Not a perfect presidency, by any means of measurement, but closer to perfection than any other President. The flaws: too passive at times, too forgiving at times, didn't check enough folk that needed to be checked. These legitimate gripes are all overshadowed, or forgiven, because of this picture. For 8 years, I witnessed a very decent, very intelligent and very strong brother. I also got a chance to witness black love and a beautiful black family on a daily basis, on an international stage. A sincere thanks to the entire Obama family. #Obama #president #presidentobama #america #africanamerican #africans #African #humanity #life #politics #democrats #dems #Black #blackfolk #blacklove #blackfam #panafrican #ovaloffice #whitehouse

Fences. Must see! Absolute great movie. I sincerely hope everyone got a chance to see Denzel and Viola's superb performances--the neccessary intensity; layered with complex levels of nuance. Denzel also did his thing directing. However, the ultimate props still remains at the feet of August Wilson, a masterful writer and playwright who was gifted with the ability to give life to the voice, the experience, of blak folk--our beauty, our strength and our flaws. I will not allow the Academy Awards --an Oscar-- to determine the measure and merit of this outstanding film; I will never fall for that trick again, ever again. It is impossible to see value in something you have habitually devalued. Victory can not be allowed to be measured by those counting on your defeat. #movie #black #blackfolk #AugustWilson #Denzel #Viola #violadavis #Fences #love #life #humanity #human #plays #playwright #writer #race #racist #racism #alabama #pittsburgh #victory #defeat

Happy Kwanzaa!!!! Unfortunately, each year Kwanzaa is greeted with indifference by some black folk or mockery by some ignorant white folk. For the holiday purists out there, all holidays were made up--Kwanzaa, Christmas Hanukkah, etc--no actual difference. Although the age and origin of each holiday varies, they all are attached to purposes related to nationalism, culture and/or religion.
I am not concerned with the interest or mockery directed toward Kwanzaa by those of other races, for some, Kwanzaa is simply yet another opportunity to devalue something black, something African. However, I continue to be disappointed with some of my brothers and sisters whom attach indifference and/or ignorant toward this constructive effort to promote and celebrate ideas and actions that belong in our culture, and should live vibrantly within our lifestyles. We celebrate and consume so many things of lesser value, that have minimal lasting benefits. Why not celebrate Kwanzaa at home, with your family and/or within your community? Too much time? Too much money? Too much ..? Too much, to whom? #Kwanzaa #Black #African #love #panafrican #africanamerican #pride #culture #race #humans #humanity #politics
