BLACK LIVES MATTER
Well put. Blacks (we) are so tired of racism which has been forcefully shoved down our throats since whites invaded Africa. Our voices are what is needed to be heard, understood, felt and actions taken upon. I don’t care about what that host Tomi Lauren had to say about how Beyonce’s performance was “unfair to little white girls who like her music”… This wasn’t for them – it was for us BLACKS! – and only for whites to take notes.
Black people are fed up w/ AmeriKKKa and the rest of this racist world. We birthed these people as the original creation of God – the Black Woman & Man *** Dates back to Kemet (Egypt) when the Greeks invaded, stole our systems of mathematics, science and spirituality.
Their fear of our greatness has always been the driving force for their hatred.
Just to let you (the world) know – I am still all BLACK! – Unapologetically BLACK*
I like my baby w| baby hair and afros. I like my negro nose w| Jackson Five nostrils.
In a country, in a world filled w| hypocrisy.
Blackness is not what whiteness considers virtuous. But yet, our culture, our skin color, our beautiful features are mimicked by those same person’s who hate us – but are so, and have been, infatuated w| everything that makes us divine.
Beyonce is in solidarity w| her fellow black women – and men.
With the Tidal (the music streaming service owned by Jay Z and friends) announcement on Friday, $1.5 million will be donated to the Black Lives Matter organization as well as other civil rights groups including: New York Million Hoodies, Hands Up United, NY Justice League, the Oscar Grant Foundation and the Trayvon Martin Foundation.
This is exactly what we need from our black celebrities – awareness, open discussions, conscious music and attributions to our communities.
Rapper’s these these don’t be saying it – no really though….
& now for the listening pleasures – a real track.

Viola Davis has made history during the 67th annual Emmy Awards (that many year’s and this is the 1st), becoming the first black actress to win the Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama for her role as Annalise Keating on ABC’s How to Get Away with Murder.
In her acceptance, speech – she quoted Harriet Tubman:
“In my mind, I see a line. And over that line I see green fields and lovely flowers and beautiful white women with their arms stretched out to me over that line, but I can’t seem to get there no-how. I can’t seem to get over that line. Let me tell you something: the only thing that separates women of color from anyone else is opportunity’.
You cannot win an Emmy for roles that are simply not there.”
This country, this world has a history of hatred, an unwanting for people of color to shine the way God intended. Viola Davis is Black Excellence, she is a shining light in a world of darkness.

The Memphis Blues. American Hall of Fame blues singer, songwriter and guitarist. Riley Ben King was born on September 16, 1925,on a cotton plantation called Berclair, near the town of Itta Bena, Mississippi, the son of sharecroppers Albert and Nora Ella King.
With the release “The Thrill is Gone” (1969), B.B. King solidified his role as Black music’s ambassador to the world. Throughout the 1970s King also found crossover success with singles like “Ain’t Nobody Home” (1972) and “To Know You Is To Love You” (1973), which was written and originally recorded by Stevie Wonder and Syretta Wright.

King’s most successful recordings, 1997’s Deuces Wild — 17 tracks with 17 different artist ranging from Van Morrison to Heavy D, Bonnie Rait and D’Angelo — and his 2000 collaboration with Clapton, Riding with the King, which went double platinum and earned the duo a Grammy Award, were both examples of how successful King’s efforts were.
B.B. King was everything our history needs to remember with all the obstacles as a Black man could face overcame in multitudes.
He gave face to the Blues and showed his talents with going outside of the box with his music. B.B. King let nothing stop him from his dreams.
He is and was the epiphany of a Black Man – a person to look up to, aspire to be like, respect, love and appreciate.
Thank you for all that you were and all that will always be in our minds.
