In a world where white is considered of the ‘norm’ and everything outside of that dominion is different – society needs eye/mind openers such as shows like this which gives face to the insides of the multi-faceted truths of black people.

 

* Racism is an ugly truth that will forever be a factor in this world as long as white people continue to feel and force their supremacist terrorism on any persons who are not of their group.

Another slap in the face for the women of America

by who other than our oh so generous when it comes to their daunting beliefs in which they love to force upon the rest of society.

It is such a sad truth that the religious people and along with these politicians (99% men) lack the common sense to acknowledge that a woman should be the only one making the decisions when it comes to her body!

While religious people (not all, but a large number) are going around this world fighting to take basic rights away from society and building mega churches and in turn killing Mother Earth – people like I and other rather spiritual human beings don’t force what we believe on others and we respect Mother Earth – She is our GOD – She is our church.

When all these church building fall and their semi-conscious believers die, – Mother Earth will heal and make way for the better.

Displaced New Orleans Poet Sunni Patterson: I WIll Bring a Light to Every Injustice

Poet and performer Sunni Patterson gives another beautiful piece which sheds light to this country and land’s beyond façade.

We have not always found comfort in killers.
We have not always found solace being rocked
in the bosoms of those who silently pray
and openly destroy.
No, not always have we mistaken mimicry for mastery
or pretending for knowing
or enslavement for freedom.
But across my memory —-
across my memory marches millions -—
bold, regal, resilient, confident —-
unshackled feet stumping up spirits
to guide us through this fickle material world.
We like sun and moon folk,
universal souls praying our prayers,
singing our songs.
Eshu, Ogoun, Shango, Yemaja, Oshun, Obatala, Oya,
Damballah, Ayida Wedo, Loa, Nkongo, Olodumare and Yami.
We know all of you by name.
We are people of beginnings, of culture, of strength.
Not always have we given into the empty threats
and scare tactics of the powerless ones.
Not always have we allowed the blood of our sons and daughters
to color the streets while we’re walking asleep,
marching to the beat of that siren song.
They’re still wearing their sheets,
with nooses in reach,
showing their teeth and smiling, it seems.
But I hear in the breeze
in the rustle of the trees
and the dangling of the feet,
they say, please, don’t let them ever forget.
You see, not always have we suffered from amnesia.
Not always have we forgotten how to conjure up spirits,
ancestor wisdom,
fix up a mixture,
spiritual elixir,
ancient traditions.
We, like magicians,
god-like vision, we -—
we are people of sight.
So, no, not always have we fallen
for this okie doke
or inhaled the hazardous smoke of the manipulators
or been satisfied with crumbs for meals
our hands have prepared.
Hughes said life for us ain’t been no crystal stair,
but at least the steps are there
to push us up higher,
teach us how to go beyond the destroyer’s disguises,
look them in the eyes and be able to see.
Because what’s surprising when you know the nature of a beast
and especially when they’ve shown the same face for centuries?
So you tell me,
what’s the difference between two sisters in New Orleans
shot point-blank in the back of the head,
and two women bound in their car in Baghdad?
Or government-sanctioned killings in Kenya,
and a sister held hostage in a house in Virginia?
Or poverty in Haiti, poverty in Jamaica,
rape in Rwanda or rape in Somalia?
A sweatshop in China or one in Guatemala?
Or small pox and blankets, syphilis and Tuskegee,
formaldehyde and FEMA, ethnic cleansing and Katrina?
I recall within a speech Dr. King made us aware,
he said injustice anywhere is injustice everywhere.
So they can spare us their drama, huh?
We got the heart of them field working mamas.
We carry the torch of that ancestor fire.
So with every fiber that flutters in our being,
with every find that comes from our seeking,
with every hearing that comes from our listening,
and every sight that comes from our seeing,
we must be faithful, strategic, victorious and free.

Lupe Fiasco – SLR2 – Kendrick Lamar & Jay Z {diss}

Lupe Fiasco responds to Kendrick Lamar‘s fighting words this track and 2 other – two tracks built to fire shots at the Compton MC; the latter is a continuation of Fiasco’s 2010 track “Super Lupe Rap.” Lupe Fiasco gains momentum toward the end of “SLR 2″, digging deeper into Kendrick’s display on Big Sean‘s “Control (HOF)” and dishing out a few of his thoughts on Jay Z‘s album Magna Carta Holy Grail.

And quote:
Took two sips of the holy grail then I backed up &I turned around & I bent over & pittoo’d shit.What do you think?
I love Jay, that’s my nigga. I feel sicker than a cruise ship

Now we all heard what he said, but what he said means we dead and that shit is insane.
He’s so crazy, look at the little baby.
Nigga you ain’t Nas, nigga you ain’t Jay-Z.
You will respect me, you will reject me,
But I’ve done so much, no matter how far you go, you will reflect me

Yea, Lupe Fiasco is in a category of his own as he says and most other mainstream rap artists are not in his category… He is a genius writer and says WTF he wants. Love you Lupe!

I fcks w| Kenrick too tho! They are each in their own category.

Arundhati Roy with Alice Walker and David Barsamian – Part 1

I heard a speech from this one today and she touched my heart.

The history of the Kashmiris is shrouded in mystery as is the history of other people in that region. Most Kashmir researchers are of the opinion that many inhabitants of Kashmir are descendants of the Lost Tribes who were exiled in 722 BCE. They wandered along the Silk Road into the countries of the East, Persia and Afghanistan until they reached the Kashmir valley and settled there.
Others say the wanderings began approximately 300 years later. The wanderers settled in Kashmir, kept their traditions until they were forced to convert to Islam when the spread of Islam reached the valley. The priest Kitro in his book, the General History of the Mughal Empire, said that the Kashmir people are the descendants of the Israelites.

Shabana Basij-Rasikh: Dare to educate Afghan girls

While listening to Feminist Magazine on http://www.kpfk.org they aired the story of this extraordinary woman.

Imagine a country where girls must sneak out to go to school, with deadly consequences if they get caught learning. This was Afghanistan under the Taliban, and traces of that danger remain today. 22-year-old Shabana Basij-Rasikh runs a school for girls in Afghanistan. She celebrates the power of a family’s decision to believe in their daughters — and tells the story of one brave father who stood up to local threats.
