Activist Bree Newsome Speaks out since her courageous act!



“I removed the flag not only in defiance of those who enslaved my ancestors in the southern United States, but also in defiance of the oppression that continues against black people globally in 2015, including the ongoing ethnic cleansing in the Dominican Republic. I did it in solidarity with the South African students who toppled a statue of the white supremacist, colonialist Cecil Rhodes. I did it for all the fierce black women on the front lines of the movement and for all the little black girls who are watching us. I did it because I am free.”

Food For Thought: Before Columbus

Before Columbus: Black Explorers  of the New World By Legrand H. Clegg II 10-20-3 via Rense
Every October Americans pause to celebrate Columbus Day. Children are taught that the Italian navigator discovered America. Parades are held in his honor and tributes tell of his skill, courage and perseverance. Historians, archeologists, anthropologists and other scientists and scholars now know that Columbus did not discover America. Not only were native Americans present when he reached the New World, but also Africans, Asians and Europeans, among others, had been sailing to the Americas thousands of years before Columbus ventured across the Atlantic. Of the various people who reached America before Columbus, Black Africans appear to have made the most contacts and to have had the greatest impact. During the 19th and 20th centuries, several scholars wrote books and articles about this subject and urged the academic establishment to change primary and secondary curricula across the country to ref…

The Racial History of American Swimming Pools in McKinney, Texas

In 2009, McKinney was forced to settlea lawsuit alleging that it was blocking the development of affordable housing suitable for tenants with Section 8 vouchers in the more affluent western portion of the city. East of Highway 75, according to thelawsuit, McKinney is 49 percent white; to its west, McKinney is 86 percent white. The plaintiffs alleged that the city and its housing authority were “willing to negotiate for and provide low-income housing units in east McKinney, but not west McKinney, which amounts to illegal racial steering.”
All three of the city’s public pools lie to the east of Highway 75. Craig Ranch, where the pool party took place, lies well to its west. BuzzFeedreports that the fight broke out when an adult woman told the teens to go back to “Section 8 housing.”  ... Whatever took place in McKinney on Friday, it occurred against this backdrop of the privatization of once-public facilities, giving residents the expectation of control over who sunbathes or doggie-paddl…

Friday, June 5th 2015 around 7:15 pm the McKinney police officers responded to the Craig Ranch North Community Pool for a “disturbance involving multiple juveniles at the location, who do not live in the area or have permission to be there, refusing to leave.” Corporal Coward David Eric Casebolt was one of twelve officers who reported on the scene. Casebolt was caught on camera using profanity, excessive force and pulling a gun on unarmed teenagers.

----------------- 15-year-old Brandon Brooks recorded the now viral video said “A fight between a mom and a girl broke out and when the cops showed up everyone ran, including the people who didn’t do anything. So the cops just started putting everyone on the ground and in handcuffs for no reason. This kind of force is uncalled for especially on children and innocent bystanders.” He also stated that the police "skipped over me and told my african american friends to sit down" in the recent interview below.

At 67 years old young Grace Jones is still rockin' it! Take a look at this photo that was shot just a couple days ago at the Parklife Music Festival 2015. She is creative, bold and beautiful. 




Grace Jones was born in Jamaica and later moved to Syracuse, NY. Prior to getting becoming a music artist, Grace started with a career in modeling. I adore Grace Jones because throughout the years she has shown that she is quite comfortable in her skin. I've come across some photos that were taken in the 80's and her audacious style is one of a kind... and her music matches that same funky flare. Check out some of her album covers and posters below.





Jam out to this...
