“There’s no reason for the establishment to fear me. But it has every right to fear the people collectively — I am one with the people.” ~Huey P. Newton
“[Banning the n-word] is an atrocious idea. It’s almost racist, to me. Why wouldn’t all curse words be banned then.” ~Richard Sherman
How long will it simply be ignored, that as long as “nigga” or “nigger” is an accepted term of endearment you will NEVER grow? As far as designations go, BLACK is about as bad as it gets. Just read the definition of this negative connotation:
dirty, soiled, grimy, characterized by the absence of, reflection of or transmission of little or no light, thoroughly sinister or evil, wicked, connected with or invoking the supernatural and especially the devil, very sad, gloomy, or calamitous, marked by the occurrence of disaster, characterized by hostility or angry discontent, sullen, characterized by grim, distorted, or grotesque satire, of or relating to covert operations, indicative of condemnation or discredit… Just a few negative metaphors many PROUDLY accept. Realizing your self-worth is the first step in rEVOLUTION, 180 degrees. It’s a new generation, yet so many are still, willfully, stagnant upon their knees.

Ignorance is bliss, comfortable, and profitable. This is why enlightening and educating one’s SELF and being fully open-minded to various frames of thought as well as different individuals, especially across cultures, is so important. We are all in the same boat, just sitting on different sides, and the war has always been on for your mind, as a truly liberated mind is the opposite of what the so called organized religions preach and indoctrinate.. Only sheeple wish to LIVE in a world inherited by the fucking “meek.”
“We are going to emancipate ourselves from mental slavery because whilst others might free the body, none but ourselves can free the mind. Mind is your only ruler, sovereign. The man who is not able to develop and use his mind is bound to be the slave of the other man who uses his mind; use your intelligence to work out the real things of life. The time you waste in levity, in non-essentials, if you use it properly you will be able to guarantee to your posterity a condition better than you inherited from your forefathers.” ~Marcus Mosiah Garvey, Jr.
“True emancipation from mental slavery can be achieved only by gaining new knowledge, insights, ideas and paradigms.” ~Glenford Smith
“In the kingdom of glass everything is transparent…” ~Vera Nazarian
“Their eyes were watching god…” ~Zora Neale Hurston
“Fearfully and wonderfully made…” ~Psalm 139:14
“Religion is the organization of spirituality into something that became the hand maiden of conquerors. Nearly all religions were brought to people and imposed on people by conquerors, and used as the framework to control their minds.” ~John Henrik Clarke
“Let Us make man [and woman] in Our image, after Our likeness. And let them have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over the livestock and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth. So [He] created man in His own image, [and] in [Her] image [She] created [her]; male and female [They] created them.” ~Genesis 1:26-27 (Revised)

“We hold these truths to be self-evident. That all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness; that to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed; that whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles, and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness.” ~Excerpt from the Declaration of Independence (July 4, 1776)

Typhoon Haiyan decimated entire towns from the map in the Philippines, which has the largest number of Catholics in Asia, but in the coastal town of Tanauan, located in the central Philippines, a lone surviving statue of “Jesus” now serves as a symbol of hope to those still struggling to survive Haiyan’s aftermath, which left around 5,000 dead, so far. Many are calling it a miracle as Pope Francis calls for Catholics, worldwide, to continue to “pray” for the victims of the typhoon…
My sexy brains.
Observations focused on the problems of an underdeveloped country, Venezuela, with some serendipity about the world (orchids, techs, science, investments, politics) at large. A famous Venezuelan, Juan Pablo Perez Alfonzo, referred to oil as the devil's excrement. For countries, easy wealth appears indeed to be the sure path to failure. Venezuela might be a clear example of that.
