10 Top Tips on How to Complete a Job Application Form

Why Do Employers Request an Application Form Instead of a Resume?   I don’t think I have ever come across anyone who enjoys filling out a job application form – I’m not a fan, myself! Unfortunately, more and more employers are using these as part as their recruitment process as an alternative to CVs and resumes, so it’s important that you fill them out correctly.   Employers tend to favour application forms over CVs or resumes as they create uniformity, so that each applicant

Black Urban Patriotism Today: Blindsided on the White Side

400+ years of social & economic disparity, white supremacy has dazed Black folks psych and focus.  Now, ineffective struggles for ‘change’ have transformed Black demands into a monster, with an eye on ‘replacing’ White hegemony (with our own brand of oppression) as a solution to Black disparity.  Power does, indeed, corrupt! Instead of continuing a united fight for control over Black lives as a whole, we struggle for equality, equal opportunity to oppress; alongside White folks.

Hope Drunk (a poem)

It’s harder, than ever, these days to see the bright side of life, what with reality the way it is. Suffering imminent, never ending pain, reminiscent, expand a good plan some evil is collected. All is well in love and war, child victims, seniors - sore no more, snuggled in bunks, hope drunks. It used to be, expression is free, disappointment, now the price to throw the dice, and nothing left but breathe, from God, hope drunk. For the best candidate a bullet bump, in secret, hope drunk.

Duped Again: Wealth, the only Compensation for not Being White?

Black the beautiful, naturally kinky hair, natural walk, and talk, values traded for the almighty dollar.  African American is led down many roads to envy, feelings of discontent and a resentful itch caused by the possessions, qualities, and dumb luck of white America.  The problems we face lay just behind the facade of the greatest lie ever told; that enslave, imprison, kill, and steal distinction of Black folk.  We’re given a title that separates us, African American; and left confused about w

Poetry or More...

I successfully published a poetry book, i entitled, Poetry or More. Now, the original plan I used is to place three year in one book, text side audio. Unfortunately, a 100MB or 100,000KB limit exist on ebooks that can be loaded <that is fair cause that equate to a huge amount from raw text>. Thus, I made four version, one is only text that include all the years. The other three are partials: 2015-2016, 2017 January to June, or 2017 July to December.  The text only includes all the poem s

PERSPECTIVES ON GLOBAL MODERNIZATION RISKS: THE AMERICAN DREAM REDEFINED

State and community equalitarian building on principles of positivism paradox factored into theories of human rights and individualism, continue to produce the inhumane treatment of society’s marginalized and ‘unfortunate’ individuals and groups. Autonomous mechanisms within applied social, political science, and risks associated with modernization patterns are structured to fit within the accepted parameters of how democratic institutions are defined and empowered. As such, principles on which

Playing the Long Game

I love it when a good plan comes together.    Many who are dazzled by the media and may have missed the plot.    We must remember, we're a civilization rooted in story-telling.   We share information filled with iconic imagery, symbolism, and sounds.     Celebrities are no different.  They use the media to tell stories that voice their platform position or opposition.   Case-in-point, On December 5, 2017 "Beyoncé surprised free-agent quarterback

White Folks are the Biggest Hypocrites

It goes without saying; white American's are the main ones who do not take responsibility for their actions. Where do I start; the mass murders, the drug and domestic abuse and terrorism, the welfare abuse and fraud, or the wealth and economic inequality gap? They cheat in everything from wage earning to college entrance exams, to voting and generational privilege. They had a 400-plus year head start on all people of color who they have kept back three grades in life, oppressed and literall

The Power of Positive Black-Esteem

Self-Acceptance - To accept the fact that you are Black. Regardless of where you live, what school you went to, how much money you make, and how many white friends you have, you are Black. None of the above things make you white or any more white than you think you are. They make you a successful, well educated, prosperous, and sociable Black person, which is an achievement in itself, and not an accepted convert to whiteness. It is important that Blacks realize that they are and always will be B

7 Ways whites Have Brainwashed and Oppressed Blacks Without using Religion

The irony behind this message is that there are things Blacks believe and do everyday under the rule of white America that have nothing to do with religion. In fact, the Bible teaches a person how to come out from under these modern forms of oppression, yet Blacks refuse to read the Bible. Black America has unconsciously associated white oppression with the Bible, which is why many still linger in perpetual mental slavery...Read More

How to Increase Your Emotional Intelligence

Best Dissertation Writing Services  Write about Many Forms of Intelligence Intelligence is an important factor in making our way in the world. What we know and how we use our knowlege is part of our intelligence. It is usually termed as academic and verbal intelligence. Often we think how smart we are is only dependent on our ability to do math or science, how we write and speak, how creative we are. I believe even humor is a form of intelligence because things are funny when we are ab

Black America can win the Psychological War against White Supremacy

To understand the current war Black America is fighting against white America's attempt to resurrect white supremacy, you must first understand the weapons being used against us. The foremost weapon is fear, backed by threats of death by violence and confinement by imprisonment. These are the main weapons whites have used most against Blacks throughout history. Whites base their entire existence and authority on the use of violence and confinement or the mass murder of people who are not wh

Reminiscent of Rodney King?

https://relevantmagazine.com/slice/jury-finds-police-officer-not-guilty-in-shooting-death-of-philando-castile/      I had to give this post a moment of silence. I really thought this case would be a slam dunk. The gun was on Castile's hip, a 4yr old child was in the back seat, the mother in the drivers seat. What was the terror in that? This man is Stupid and Free to gloat to everyone he encounters just like Zimmerman about how he killed a black man and got away with it. Just a few Day

Philando Castile: The story that inspired my Blog

This past Tuesday will be 355 days since Philando Castile was killed. To this day, after watching that video; I'm still in shock. Why this case is still going on is beyond me. The Philando Castile case has always stuck with me because with Social Media (which I have a love/hate relationship with, however deemed necessary) we wouldn't have been able to witness for ourselves the senseless killings of Black men that happens everyday. What were normally left with is the aftermath of what the News ha

My Writing Islands

Leah Cutter has this idea for a  island map where you use the coordinates for the genre you write in and make these islands So I first had to list my work, I chose only the work I have published on Kobo, I didn't choose everything I have ever written or had accepted in this that or the other. While that would be fair, to be honest, my mindset is, if I incorporate those things that I may have to add another axis and I didn't want this to be muddled too much. If you ever tried to graph a functio
