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.

Big sis Beyoncé pulled up about 15 minutes later in a black SUV, with husband Jay Z and daughter Blue Ivy. Mom Tina Knowles, son Daniel Julez and singer Janelle Monae were also in attendance.
“Luckily, I dated all of the losers ages ago,” Solange told Harper’s Bazaar earlier this year. “My love life has been stable for a while. It’s a f–cked up thing … without conflict it’s a lot harder to write interesting songs.”
I am happy for Solange – she has a beautiful which pours out through her music and pictures. Wish her and new hubby the best of luck!
