Relationship advice…from 4000+ years ago

To continue Black History Year, here’s some relationship advice from over 4000 years ago.  The wisdom of Africa is much older than we are lead to believe.  From the Teachings of Ptahhotep: 21.

The Story of Queen Nzinga

The Story of Queen Nzinga

This is an excerpt from The Destruction of Black Civilization by Chancellor Williams (available here).  If you don’t know a lot about African History and have only been taught Black history starting with slavery, you should definitely read this book. The setting for the story described in the excerpt is Angola around 1622.  The Portuguese […]

Victimization Slows Progress

by Tre B. While I’m usually the first to step out in defense of my African brothers and sisters in the motherland and at first this video upset me, I thought about it for a minute, and realized that this is just another example of the victim mentality inhibiting creative thinking and problem solving.  Whether […]

Video: Tim Wise, the Pathology of White Privilege

M.D. Turner So, just found out about this guy and spent several hours watching all the videos of him I could find.  I like this guy because he’s not professing to be a “good” white person trying to “help” Black people.  What “good” white people need to do is get their own people in line. […]

Revolutionary Daily Thoughts (2/28 – 3/6)

Revolutionary Daily Thoughts (2/21 thru 2/27)

From the Revolutionary Daily Thoughts posted every day on our facebook page: RDT: “Who’ll pay reparations on my soul.” -Gil Scott Heron RDT: “Don’t integrate…infiltrate. Similar means, different end.” -Malcolm D. Turner RDT: “Critical consciousness is not “banned,” it is simply smothered behind an ever-growing avalanche of shit. What that means is that, if the […]

Haiti and Apocalyptic Politics

Haiti and Apocalyptic Politics

Watching the current rally calls and pledges of aid to Haiti as a result of this unfathomable natural disaster, I can’t help but to feel proud that citizens across the world feel compassion for our wounded brothers and sisters. This makes me smile, only not too bright.

Knowledge Drop: The most powerful force in finance

Knowledge Drop: The most powerful force in finance

Most people don’t know what compound interest is, and even fewer know about the Rule of 72.  This is why saving your money is critical to your financial future and why, as compulsive/conspicuous consumers, Black people in America have made no significant economic progress relative to other ethnic groups since Reconstruction.  Compound interest is your […]

Daily Knowledge Drop: Were Ancient Egyptians Black?

Daily Knowledge Drop: Were Ancient Egyptians Black?

Daily Knowledge Drop brought to you by: http://www.dangerousnegro.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=DPKMSS The controversy regarding the race of the residents of ancient Kemet (Egypt) aka the “pyramid builders” still exists, but only in the minds of those who are uninformed or whose racial prejudices prevent them from accepting the truth.  Another failing of our educational systems.  Racism has played, […]

Tyler Perry: Cunning or Cooning?

Tyler Perry: Cunning or Cooning?

Nobody in Hollywood can hold a candle to Tyler Perry’s meteoric rise to stardom in the last decade. From niche market gospel plays to Black blockbuster bravado, Perry is the American Dream realized – a rags to riches phenomenon. Despite Tyler Perry’s cinematic and syndicated success, anchored in applying Christian family values to modern day strife, there are those who choose to label the brother a sell-out.

What The Senate's Apology For Slavery Really Means

What The Senate’s Apology For Slavery Really Means

You probably missed it, (I know I did), but the United States Senate issued a formal apology for slavery a few days ago. [Begin Sarcasm] Thank you Uncle Sam! This news made my Juneteenth shuckle buck all the more livelier, as I not only celebrated my ancestors learning of the 2 year old Emancipation Proclamation, but now the great-great-great grandsons of their slave masters unanimously concluded “My bad.” So now that the federal government has come clean after 144 years, I guess everything is all good. Break out the tea and crumpets, chicken and watermelon, gin and juice… celebration time Negroes! [End Sarcasm].

Happy Juneteenth!

Happy Juneteenth!
