thinking out loud #14

I’m alone and I want to be with someone who wants to be alone with me.

I don’t think I want that much, just to be held, to be kissed, to be looked at like the most everything…just every once in a while. Someone to talk all night to and sleep all day with, someone to laugh with, someone I can be a complete goof with, someone who I can be honest with…

Maybe I’m alone and just a little lonely…

Jews went into Auschwitz and came out as Jews. Africans went into the ships and came out as Blacks. The former is a Human holocaust; the latter is a Human and and metaphysical holocaust.

Frank Wilderson, Red, Black, and White: Cinema and the Structure of US Antagonisms (via so-treu)

makes me think deeply about what the using ‘black’ as an identity means. 

(via nayyirahwaheed)

I think its rather telling that we’re given “the opposite of white” as a racial identity

(via xjeremyjohnsonx)

well lets not get hasty, the egyptians and many other groups of our ancestors reffered to themselves as black…Africa was originally called the land of the blacks (Akebuland) egypt was called kemet(kmt, kemit etc) which translated to black nation.

maybe they choose to be the opposite of black as their racial identity due to their subconscious fear of annihilation and inadequacy.

Sometimes when I’m alone
I Cry,
Cause I am on my own.
The tears I cry are bitter and warm.
They flow with life but take no form
I Cry because my heart is torn.
I find it difficult to carry on.

If I had an ear to confiding,
I would cry among my treasured friend,
but who do you know that stops that long,
to help another carry on.


The world moves fast and it would rather pass by.
Then to stop and see what makes one cry,
so painful and sad.
And sometimes…
I Cry
and no one cares about why.

Tears we all have cried

"Music should enrich the soul; it should teach spirituality by showing a person a portion of himself that he would not discover otherwise. It’s easy to rediscover part of yourself, but through art you can be shown part of yourself you never knew existed. That’s the real mission of art. The artist has to find something within himself that’s universal and which he can put into terms that are communicable to other people. The magic of it is that art can communicate to a person without his realizing it… enrichment, that’s the function of music." Bill Evans


Great Music is truth

There was a lot of talk today about the media’s failed coverage [read: non-coverage] of the 234 Nigerian girls, thus came the #234WhiteGirls hashtag.

No, none of us wants any white girls to go missing. We just want these Nigerian girls to get the same amount of coverage that white girls get (or would get), because EVERY girl matters.

Truth…people who are true and genuine do things because they need to be done or because it’s the right thing to do not for any other reason…

Rest in Peace to the powerful, inspirational, motivational, fearless Maya Angelou. Another elder has transitioned into the spiritual realm to help watch over and guide our people.

Here is a difference. Black/Brown/Yellow face is used to humiliate. White face is packaged in a bottle, marketed as a key for success and labelled Fair and Lovely. And it sells.
