A Great Career Choice for Black Folk with Criminal Records: Why not a Black supremacy emergence from within White supremacy?

Being Black, poor, and marginalized satisfy any three-strikes (you're out) rule, for success; a criminal background to boot cements a life of ever illusive opportunity. To try, is to do. To not try, is not to do! So, what is a good choice for felonious Black men/women who served sentences for criminal offences?    Brothers and sisters just don't want to sacrifice what's needed to obtain a formal college education; which could grant near vindication of many criminal background

Valued social relationships versus individuality, where deception and truth merge: A Black Perspective.

Research recently published, 2008, suggests that deceptive communication can serve a functional purpose. The study revealed that a person's motivation to deceive is influenced by his or her/his cultural self-identity [and] that one's cultural identity greatly influences whether a message was perceived to be deceptive.    The research points out that:    -- People who strongly valued their own individuality over the social relationships reported having a lo

Conflicts Between the Privileged Often Spills Over, Interfering with Efforts of Blacks Vying for Power, Until it's Inconvenient.

FOR EXAMPLE: When Hurricane Katrinia struck New Orleans, leaving the dead floating in the street and the living stranded on highways and rooftops, a huge crowd of mostly black and poor people descended on the city’s convention centre, where the cameras, but little else, were waiting. When asked why relief organisations had been caught off guard, the hapless director of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, Michael Brown, responded: “We’re seeing people that we didn’t know exist.” Since t

Tactical and strategic dimensions of Trump's Iran decision is playing out here in the middle east.

The Israeli military said 20 rockets were fired at its positions in the occupied Golan Heights overnight.    It responded by launching what a spokesman called "one of the broadest aerial operations in recent years".    There was no immediate comment from Iran, whose deployment of troops to Syria to back the government in the country's civil war has alarmed Israel.    Iran has repeatedly called for an end to the existence of the Jewish state.

FREE YOUR MIND FROM TOXIC ENERGY

FREE YOUR MIND FROM TOXIC ENERGY     http://kweenyakini.blogspot.com/2018/04/free-your-mind-from-toxic-energy.html     We must begin to let go of anyone and anything that does not serve our purpose if we want to achieve elevation.  This was one of the most important lessons that I had to learn through my journey.  Because I discovered that when I was holding on what I thought I needed, it was preventing me from finding what I truly needed.  I also found that our gro

How to Profit from the Underclass

The Black community who have nearly zero wealth but $1.5 trillion buying power keeps the U.S. economy afloat.     Some have the belief, Absolutely some of those tactical and strategical solutions require mental reprogramming and behavior modification.   The Black community didn’t create fiat money or its banking system.  Therefore, we're clueless when dealing with it.  The system terrorizes and traumatizes others, crushing them under the weight of insurmountable financia

Character Building

Character Building

It all begins with the character.  The story has its genesis in the character. Without the character - there is no story.    Whenever I'm having a problem writing fiction, ( or even in my own life)  I know I have to return to the protagonist.  If she's fully developed then I have to concede that maybe she's in the wrong story.    -Originally Posted in The Thriving Writer

GOING BACK TO WHERE IT ALL BEGAN

GOING BACK TO WHERE IT ALL BEGAN   When I was a child I loved writing short stories because it felt like I was transporting my mind to another world.  And when I was a teenager I got involved in the Hip Hop Scene and I began writing verses and rhymes just for fun.  Then I stopped writing, and I tried doing all the things that I thought would bring me happiness like work, family, and so on.  But my creative energy always kept rising up inside me.  So, I tried doing Arts and craft, and s

My Quote of the Night: Wind

Love is truly like the wind. You can't see it, yet you feel it against your skin as though you are constantly walking with a gentle breeze across your face. When a woman is in love... that's when stuff becomes completely amazing. She is never so fascinating. She gleams kaleidoscopic like diamonds under sunlight. Her smile, so childlike as though keeping a secret, could stop your heart. I saw a woman in love once and the only thing I could think of is how could any man wanna take that away from h

My Morning Dose (Hot For Teacher)

Yesterday I started a list of the things you wouldn't find on a school curriculum. They don't teach you how to love a woman, how to make her smile, how to keep her laughing even when she doesn't find you funny. They don't teach you how to scale back when you and that same woman just don't see eye to eye on a peaceful resolution. They don't teach you how to practice patience. They don't teach you how to walk away nor do they teach you that it isn't necessarily important to win every fight. They d

My Quote of the Night

(These Things) to feel, to give, to take, to laugh crazily, to get lost absentmindedly, to be found, or to dance, to crave and to lust, to cry out profoundly, to kiss ever so softly is to be very unapologetically human. I'm hoping to change your perception, hoping to dissuade you of this constant delusion that you are not worthy of love. You do not have to change what you want or accept less from anyone anymore. Let those people who refuse to maintain love, envy you for finding and accepting som

Chivalry Sun

Some acts are so innocently intimate that you can't help but to perform them with pride. For example... I relish the feeling of removing her coat and placing it across my arm. It feels as though I just unwrapped my greatest gift in front of the entire world. She shines brighter than the sun at that moment, her smile is indescribably priceless at that moment. And at the end of the date, when I go to place her coat back on, I sneak a forehead kiss to make this simple, effortless, painless act, a m
