  1. I just started making my first NFT. An article and @DCComics pushed me over the edge. I had been hearing about it for awhile. DC Comics gave me my first. I then scanned an article in The Economist which motivated me to take the plunge to create my own. So far I am using OpenSea and Coinbase wallet. I hope to have my first one ready by the end of the weekend. Follow me on OpenSea and let’s see how things develop. https://opensea.io/Daniellegfny

  2. Wow Anglo "dad", are you ok? I think he needs a little bit of cultural exposure. - Shout out to Meek Mill for commissioning art work from a black woman! Thank you for this link to the Artist, Nina Chanel Abney. This is my first time seeing her work and it is inspiring! #Sankofa - It appears she is reaching back to ancient KMT to bring us modern-day hieroglyphs and nudes to tell her story. Bravo for keeping African antiquity alive. LINK: https://ninachanel.com/ THIS! A lot of us black women love our bodies too. No one wants to be objectified that's brain-damaged western civilization programming - BUT when black men LOVE our bodies it's endearing, it's foreplay. it's LOVE. It says to us or (at least me) black men feel they're home

  3. I've repeatedly said for over 10 years now that Black folks need a SOLID AGENDA. But what I've been saying for about 3 years specifically is that INTELLIGENT and DECENT Black folks need to get together and formulate this agenda because you'll never unite ALL Black folks on everything. Unfortunately, some of our people are just plain too STUPID to know what's in their best interests. They'll sell-out for a pack of Black-N-Milds and 12 piece party pack of Popeyes chicken. You can't discuss anything of importance with them. They won't understand if and many of those who manage to....will just screw your plans. "Reparations???? NIgga this IS the Reparations! Da' fuck you thank???" INTELLIGENT and DECENT Black folks need to organized and form an agenda. I've discovered that INTELLIGENT Black people...meaning Black people with an IQ of atleast over 95..actually tend to think quite similar. We notice the same things in society and actually notice the same problems. When intelligent Black men get together...and leave the dope and alcohol alone while we meet...we usually come up with VIABLE solutions to our problems pretty quickly. It's usually White folks who come into the meeting interfering with the discussion or Black FOOLS who waste time talking loud and making threats that hinder progress. And don't let a bunch of Black fools AND some White folks be at the same meeting...they'll REALLY act up!!! Start showing out and competing with eachother over who the White folks agree with the most. "Now wait a minute now... Shhhhhh...be quiet yall, I got sum' to say. Now hold on yall... I thank...I thank dat we should all show a dep of gratitude to Massa Trump fa takin' time out his busy schedule to come sit down wit' us." Just don't let THEM butter biscuit eating fools in our meetings and we'll be alright. Let them wait outside in the drive way next to the cars until we're finished talking businesses. Then they can drive us back home...or to the closest Popeye's chicken to celebrate our success...lol

  5. Agreed! Be safe! I just read a timeline of a man who was fully vaccinated in March - He died today. His 8 year old daughter was the first to test positive, last month. Then his wife and then him. He ended up in the iCU. The last video he sent talked about not wasting one moment but instead live your purpose. I had a feeling the virus picked and chose its victims. But I thought the vaccination actually lessened the symptoms. I didn't understand why the CDC said to take off your masks - I didn't. All this to say - I'm heart broken. No one knows anything about this virus other than it's deadly - FOR SOME. @Pioneer1 I hope you can find a way to earn income without having to leave the house. When I read that you didn't get vaccinated I was sad. Today, I'm learning we are all in the same boat - vaccinated or not. Maybe it's a good thing you left your job - at least you don't have to worry about those folks breathing on you anymore. Yes, you make me crazy but I'd miss you if you departed. Put some lambs' blood on your door and hope for the best!

  6. You know you call them people whitey!!! ************************************************************************************ @tipsyturv Your questions that started, basically, with "I have a friend who" made me suspect that you were referring to yourself. You can identify yourself however you please, but I would hope that you identify yourself honestly and not by your skin tone. As to the people who question your heritage, next time someone asks you about it, give them an answer and then turn around and ask them about theirs. Most people don't even know what it is. Or ask them what part of Africa they originated from. I guarantee they won't have an answer. ************************************************************************************

  8. Surely, I could look at the world around me and cruise down the road of pessimism. But, I can only envisage that it would lead to more darkness. So, I choose to be eternally optimistic because I don't see any joy in the alternative. I also have the opiate of music that allows me to tune out the noise. As I look back over my life, it's been a great ride so far. I have no aches or pains literally or figuratively therefore I really have no reason to complain. Now, if the Supreme Being decides to snatch my black azz off the planet within the next minute or two, that's cool too. in the meantime, that doesn't preclude me from having opinions about everything. I'll continue calling balls and strikes as I see them.

  9. That's easy...these are 1st world issues/problems. I do not believe any of it is a matter of life or death for you personally. There are folks dealing with far worse in the form of debilitating illnesses, being dumb/stupid, despair and poverty, etc. So, in my eternal optimism, there is no reason for you to bid this world goodbye. Our time will be up soon enough. No need to expedite it. I also enjoy reading whatever is on your mind. Besides, you've watched the movie this long. You might as well stick around for the credits.

  10. Yessir. I remember many years ago, a dude was over in Singapore putting graffiti on the walls. The US tried to intervene. Nope. They whupped his azz. I bet that dude can't stand aerosol spray paint, magic markers, crayons, pencils, pens, etc. Thank goodness for computers and smartphones. He can type whatever he has to say. Corporal punishment (flog, cane, waterboard, amputate, stone, etc.) would reduce crime immediately. But no, that would be bad for businesss here in the US. They need to warehouse black folks. The prison industrial complex is a cash cow that props up the economy in many ways. The more f8cked up enforceable laws we have on the books, the better chances they have of throwing folks into greater confinement. I just heard a news report the other day that black folks are locked up 5 times more than white folks for similar crimes. Latinx folks are locked up 1.3 times more than white folks for similar crimes. I'm not surprised. Do yourself a favor and hang out at the courthouse one day. You will see black folks going to prison for drug offenses. White folks going to time out, er, drug rehabilitation class for the same offenses. Don't get me started on the n8gglets who enforce the laws (judges and prosecutors). They lock up the black folks and set the white folks free.

Ain't building a damn thing...just playing games and tricking people out of what little money they DO have.

  13. Personally, I'm not offended by Meek Mill's artwork. I just don't find it to be in good taste. The artwork looks like something that should be in a Boondocks comic book. I'm not a black woman either but as a connoisseur of them, I can type/say unequivocally that many black women take great pride in their bodies and personal appearance. They just want it to be seen by the *right* person i.e. someone who they find attractive. That's why black women wear clothes to accentuate the positive and give an idea of what lies beneath. They certainly don't dress like Middle Eastern or Amish women. Women do not want to be objectified or sexualized by those to whom they're not attracted. When a woman is digging someone, it's on and poppin' and everything comes off. Religion and morality is the smoke screen folks hide behind until they feel safe letting their hair down and doing what comes naturally. Whodini said, "nobody wants to be called a freak but everybody wants to get freaked". Even in black churches, the women try to out-dress each other in order to get the pastor's robe to rise. They certainly aren't going after the choir director dude because he's after the pastor too. The bottom line is that black women are comfortable in their nakedness and willing to share it with whoever they feel is qualified to see them.

  14. ************************************************************************************ I saw that video where he was stomping on that poor defenseless woman and I heard that he had killed his mother. People like him makes me scared to go outside, and I live in a secluded cul-de-sac. They are letting serial killers out of prison now; people that should have been executed a long time ago. And things just keep getting worse and worse. Trump said that some people coming across our borders are released prisoners that their countries don't want to deal with, and I tend to believe him. I reside near the Mexico border and am seriously contemplating relocating further inland where things might feel safer. ************************************************************************************

  15. Even for skilled labor jobs.... To go to school for 4 or 5 years and learn the math and other skills it takes to be a journeyman is too much for the average poor/working class person. You really do need to be ATLEAST average IQ or a little higher. This is why most people don't get skilled trades. They can't get past the math. The tangents and degrees throw them off....lol

  16. This is heartbreaking because these workers need the most protection from greedy-a owners and management. I’ll never forget Jeff Smisek former CEO at United. He hated that Legacy United had such strong unions and he did everything he could to destroy them. But the pilots union dragged him .. and even the flight attendants union 25000 strong after the merger wouldn’t give or budge much on anything. He hated the work rules; and definitely hated the pay— Dude even tried to get rid of aircraft mechanics at some stations and ended up paying other airlines to fix the planes. In the end, the FBI had him under investigation and he resigned with a golden parachute. But all those unions I mentioned do have highly skilled laborers. So, you may be right, it could make a difference.

  17. Yes. Check it out. He stabbed his own mother to death and went to prison for it but got released. They are letting violent people with mental problems out ON PURPOSE to cause chaos and instability in the community. That man who killed Nipsey Hustle was let out of jail early....killed Nipsey...then they caught him down the street and put him back in. They are RELEASING these monsters into the community on purpose and using them as weapons.

  18. I read the book written about Henrietta Lacks by a white female author who did pretty well from the royalties. I think she did set up some kind of foundation in Henrietta's name. Oprah, of course, made a TV movie based on this book. Wonder who was paid for the rights to it? The story of Henrietta and her family was a rather sad one. Her survivors seemed to be a very erratic family group. In regard to the hospital labs using her cells without the family's permission, this was a routine procedure. It was like using the afterbirth of miscarried and aborted fetuses, harvesting these cells to save the lives of living babies. I think the latter is still done today. it figures that Ben Crump would be the current face of the civil rights legal team, inasmuch as a petty criminal, counterfeit-bill passing, ex-drug addict named George Floyd has become the martyr of the BLM movement ...says the person who has divorced her race. @Troyhow about knocking down that Go Daddy firewall so those of us being blocked by it will be able to start new posts?

  19. I've met a Lacks heir. Their family could definitely use the money. Ben Mumble Crump is definitely getting paid since he's become the face of these high profile cases. To Troy and Mel's point, there is always a team of attorneys behind the scenes. Somebody has to do the work while Benny Mum-ra is on every cable news show.

  20. Ben Crump is getting paid huh? I saw him, here in Tulsa, during the centennial commemoration for the Race Massacre. The Lacks family, in my opinion, deserves compensation based upon the limited information I have. I don't know who is gonna pay a quarter of a trillion dollars, but hey if they pay 1%. That will probably be fair... I think. I'm sure Crump and his team of attorneys will be happy with a multi-billion dollar settlement.

  21. Mzuri, I hate to break this news but unfortunately, unions have been corrupted by politics too. Unions collect dues from its members to take care of them supposedly. But, those same unions are also courted by special interest groups to get their members to conform to certain things too. Unions will not buck mask mandates or vax requirements because it would be bad for business i.e. their bottom line. They are encouraging members to follow the rules. I don't know what the end game is regarding this pandemic but I'm watching their hands and following the money. I'm still amazed that they have politiczed and monetized a virus but to date there is no cure for cancer. Oh, that's right, there is no money in the cure. But, there's a whole economy built on cancer research and treatment.

  22. ************************************************************************************ That has been done already, it's called unionization. For some reason, we aren't hearing from the labor unions on all of this. The mandated vaccinations, the option to work from home, masks in the workplace - all of these issues should be addressed by unions. I have a feeling that people don't understand the importance of being in a union and don't think it's worth paying union dues. Having been a union member throughout my career, I know for a fact that the benefits far outweigh the costs. If there was more union involvement right now, some of the nonsense that employers are doing wouldn't be happening. ************************************************************************************

  23. Beautifully stated! :chef’s kiss: I would add gender is fluid too. Sex as identifier is quite complicated. I was assigned female at birth - but didn’t learn I had all the working parts until way after puberty - actually when I gave birth. But what about babies assigned male or female at birth but have nothing to go with their penis or vagina? What about alleged females that have XY chromosome - and gonads. They are NOT hermaphrodites. They present as female but they really are neither sex. They have a different assignment of chromosomes. YY is the only assignment spontaneously aborted. Check out Swyer Syndrome - it reveals sex chromosomes don’t care about our politics or religious beliefs. The Human species is far more complex than our tiny minds can begin to understand.

  25. Mzuri It seems to me that even when people are arrested, oftentimes they are set free anyway. Especially in places like NYC. Yeah. Especially when they are violent and mentally disturbed and the cops want to put them out on the street to commit a violent act to JUSTIFY themselves. Isn't it interesting that most of the well publicized violent incidents that took place in New York earlier this year almost all involved a homeless Black person with mental problems who was previously arrested but for some reason was let back out on the street? That one dude who beat up the Asian woman infront of a building had allegedly stabbed his own mother to death a few years back. But he get's out and is allowed to roam the streets?????

I also don't see the point in displaying ads for things like tractors.

Van Jones cried when Trump became President....then the nicca turned around and cried when BIDEN became President! He'll cry for any damn thing.

  31. Mzuri Well, according to the CDC and others who even PROMOTE the jab...when it comes to the Delta Variant, it really doesn't matter whether you've got the jab or not you can STILL spread it just as easily. They knew all of this when they were telling people to take their masks off and walk around Wal-Mart a few months ago. They knew that jabbed people were just as likely to pick up the virus and spread it as the un-jabbed. They KNEW this...and hid the information. Their entire goal is to get people to stop worrying and panicking and go back to work, go back to shopping....ignore the dead bodies laying in the street and go back to business as usual. Hundreds of thousands of U.S. troops have not yet complied with vaccine mandate as deadlines near Yeah, I was reading that earlier today actually! Also hundreds of thousands of POLICE OFFICERS around the nation haven't gotten it yet. They said the LAPD chief is refusing to enforce the mandate on his officers because so many haven't gotten it that he doesn't want to risk a mass WALK OUT by the officers. This thing is getting real.....very real. And I say it's about time.

  32. ************************************************************************************ @Pioneer1 That's the thing to do, isn't it? Even the vaccinated need to continue trying to isolate themselves as much as possible, especially now that it seems the vaccine isn't as effective against COVID and its variations as was previously thought. I have so many questions. Another reason to be skeptical, I was listening to somebody on RAV or NewsMax asking why so many health professionals are refusing to get vaccinated. Do they know something that the rest of us do not? I am retired but I still dabble in domaining and website development, also am on an MMO forum to keep up with what's going on in the industry.

  34. Chev ou know, I was conditioned to never even consider the possibility that people of African descent were anywhere in the South American countries until I worked at an Afro-centered charter school a few years back. It was at that time, that I learned that second to the continent of Africa, Brazil had the largest population of Black Africans. That completely 'Blew my mind!' But then after researching, I did come to realize about the possibility of more. Yes I used to date a Black woman from Brazil. She could barely speak English, but she LOVED Marvin Gaye...lol. I don't want to sound like a conspiracy theorist but, I do. I do feel like there is some type of effort to push some type of movement against people of African descent in certain places in the western league realms of the world. I feel like something strange is going on. And, like, we don't have much economic power, so it baffles me but deep in my heart I feel that I know. They won't teach us the whole truth over here. They won't teach us about the 'African American natives' that dominated these Ancient American continents in ancient times and that there was a movement against these natives when the Europeans came. They wont teach us and it seems like history is trying to repeat itself. I don't expect my enemy to teach me the truth, and neither should you. That's why it's important for us to gather the knowledge for OURSELVES, organize it, and pass it along to our children so that they can compound it with their additional findings. That's the true scientific way. Right now what most Black folks are getting from these universities and other educational institutions isn't real KNOWLEDGE...it's just INFORMATION. And usually FALSE information at that. Real knowledge is ACCURATE information that has been VERIFIED by a trusted source. We need our own archeological teams to get out and dig up the truth for ourselves and not just take the words of White folks "You won't BELIEVE what I just found in these ancient ruins! A bottle of hot sauce and an afro-pick"

  35. The Block recently reported on a trader who borrowed 3.5 ETH (around $12,000) on NFTFi, offering an NFT that had last sold for 3.25 ETH. Over the next three months, the value of NFTs from the same collection skyrocketed to around $300,000 on the low end. On October 10, the loan period ended, the borrower failed to repay the loan, and the NFT—now worth many times more than the original loan—was taken. It’s just like other loans pay back what you borrow.

  36. Yes, I understand! However, they are crossing the boarder and are not just in that area. Something strange is happening, imo. I remember reading a post of yours a few days ago about Black people in certain areas in those regions being victimized and, earlier today, I was shockingly remined of what you wrote because someone told me that a lot of the victims in the recent killing of 119 prisoners were actually Afro-Ecuadorans!!! So, I researched and it does seem like it! OMG! I always think about Trayvon Martin when I hear stories like this. It was in mid-morning when María Elena Villacís got a WhatsApp message from her brother Darwín, who was jailed in the Litoral penitentiary, a notorious prison in the coastal Ecuadorian city of Guayaquil. “They’re starting a war in [Wing] 5,” it read. “Call the law, tell them to get into [Wing] 5.” Knowing the prison’s violent reputation, María Elena replied: “I’m praying for you, for the four of you. Take care for God’s sake.” Then she called the police. Agony of Ecuador’s brutal prison massacre endures for bereaved relatives | Ecuador | The Guardian All four of them were killed.

  37. Mzuri You don't know what a Non-Fungible Token (NFT) is? I thought that ALL tokens were non-fungible, if you kept them in a cool dry spot. These were all the rage a few months ago, and then they weren't, but now they are again. Don't worry....once they get a few more "Daniels" to invest in them...like the Terminator -they'll be back, lol. But that should let you know right then and there something is SHIFTY about them. If the value is THAT unstable that it can rise and fall like that, it tells you it's a scam with a string attached. They sucker people in to take their money and when they get enough suckers sucked in...then they lower the boom and take the cash and dash. Now honestly young lady, how much REAL hard-currency cash were you able to make off of investing in this stuff? You don't have to tell me all your business...but did you make atleast over....say....$200 profit, investing in it????? People call them nifty or nifties. Yeah???

  38. The family of Henrietta Lacks' has filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Courthouse in Baltimore, MD B against ThermoFisher Scientific. The pharmaceutical company, listed as a defendant in the case, is allegedly responsible for profiting off Henrietta Lacks' cancerous cells to develop the HeLa cell line. According to AP News, the lawsuit asks the court to "disgorge the full amount of its net profits obtained by commercializing the HeLa cell line to the Estate of Henrietta Lacks." That amount could total over $250 Billion. You may recall published reports, indicate in 1951, John Hopkins Hospital admitted Henrietta Lacks to treat cervical cancer. Doctors took the cells of the tumor without her permission. Lacks family accuses Thermo Fisher Scientific of selling those cells. Lacks' cells helped medical breakthroughs such as the polio vaccine, gene mapping, invitro-fertilization, and even the research that led to the COVID-19 Vaccine. Ben Crump, and co-counsel Christopher Seeger says the lawsuit will name other defendants. Kim D Parker, Esq (also present in the video) is the counsel of record.

  41. ProfD Dr. Boyce Watkins was doing an entire show about this very subject a few minutes ago. This might seem a little disappointing, but I really don't have that much of a problem with the cover to be honest. This is a very interesting subject that probably deserves it's own thread. Let me know if you want me to throw up another canvass for you to paint on until Troy straightens out your account. I personally don't have a problem with it for several reasons: 1. I'm no longer religious so I don't find nudity and using women for sex wrong, as long as they aren't being forced into it. I know you don't need to be religious to have morals...and I have morals...but they don't revolve around sexual activity. So I personally don't find it offensive. I know I'm not a Black woman so I can't answer for them but as a Black man I LOVE seeing the body of Black women. 2.I think too many of our sisters have picked up the "any appreciation of the female body is offensive" vibe from a lot of the White feminists they went to college with. So now any attempt to portray Black women in a sexual light is seen as offensive. The fact is MOST WOMEN....of all races...are sexualized...not just Black women. 3. We can't have it both ways. We can't say don't sexualize the Black woman....but when a Black man says ok and then goes after the White woman who doesn't have ANY problem getting naked and being as freaky as she wants to be...then get mad at him for chasing after White women. We tell the brother stop disrespecting the sister and lusting after her....so he stops and goes after the White woman. We tell him to stop lusting after the White woman....so he stops and starts lusting after OTHER Black men...LOL We tell him NO BROTHER...stop lusting after other dudes....... Now the poor brother don't know WHO he's allowed to lust after. And starts lusting after HIMSELF to be on the safe-side. "Can a brutha catch a break???" So, for me....as long as it's between consenting men and women...it's all good. Can't make too many rules and restrictions. But that's just MY opinion after so many experiences and observations of Black man/female relations.

  42. Agreed. This has less to do about helping gay people "see themselves" reflected in comic books and more to do with increasing notoriety through controversy, a common tactic today. Again, the media laps this stuff up, on cue, spins it for al the controversy it is worth to get more traffic, to serve more advertising to us, to get us to buy more shit we don't need. The reality is that it is not Clark Kent who is gay, but his son that has come out. Again, making it seemed as though "Superman" is now gay was done to create more controversy. I only know that beside I heard a more complete story on NPR... My default is to ignore most of this stuff. But if you are online, it is hard to ignore this nonsense as it is virtually force feed to you. As a result I did see an image of Superman's son locking lips with another dude. I don't ever recall seeing lark Kent lock lips with Lois Lane in such a fashion. But again, this is more about generating revenue than serving the LGBTQ+ community. In fact, this whole thing will just exacerbate relationship with the "community" in the same way "critical race theory" has with the Black community.

  43. This is news for me. He stabbed his own mother to death and he was released!? Yes, I read a comment from you on another thread awhile back about mental ill prisoners being released back into the community and this is a major subject that bothers me too. @Pioneer1

  46. Cynique, they can argue until their faces turn UV but the birth certificate doesn't lie. A bat and balls is a male and a pocketbook is a female. In the case of a hermaphrodite, I believe the birth certificate says TBD at a later date. Now, however an individual chooses to identify, dress and/or use their plumbing equipment is an entirely different matter. That's free will. The brokenhearted lover sang that song. I could hear the Soul coming from the diaphragm. The gold tooth probably added some stank too.

  48. Mzuri I'm not on YOUR case...right now atleast...I'm on Cynique's...lol. Membership has it's privileges. One of the privileges to being in the Black Club is the unlimited use of the words Nigger/Nigga. Now I LOVE niggas...I do....but niggas need to understand this! You can't just let EVERYBODY run around saying it. Power is exclusive, not inclusive. Now I'm sorry to do this to your friend Mzuri but I have to take her pass from her and "put it up" in the closet until she get's her mind right!!!!

  49. @Mel Hopkins I created about 130+ Time Markers but I didn't know what they meant. Some techniques I create, and over time I learn how to apply them. The first time I used it, I had an idea of what it might mean based on the symbols. The time marker I got from the time on a vacation photograph. So I looked through a fe hundred transits and in the matter of minutes I found a few matching time markers. Then I looked briefly at the charts and chose the one that felt like the right one. I was able to tell the person what they had for lunch, based on the time marker. I was correct in addition it was a food item only eaten while vacationing at the spot in the photo. I figured if I have to wait for someone to ask it is probably going to take me years to assign meaning to all the time markers. So even though I don't have meanings for them all. I assign a meaning as needed.
