7th Anniversary Of Trayvon Martin’s Death

Black History: Special Delivery!!

On February 6, 2012, Trayvon Martin was killed. Today is the 7th anniversary of his death.
African American commentator Joy Reid shared powerful commentary that we previously posted. It is worth sharing again. “People assume that black young men are only scary, never scared” -Joy Reid

Today we honor is memory.

The Harriet Tubman Travel Agency: Specializing In “Underground Excursions”

Black History:  Special Delivery!!


Ben Carson’s, ill-fated reference this week, of enslaved Africans as being immigrants received major shade on social media. (Click here to view our blog post on the incident) 

Amid the social media black lash, a quote from @justlikecandi_1 received thousands of likes and retweets.  It is the prefect combination of humor truth, and sarcasm.  

I Will Survive?……Disabling The Drive To “THRIVE”

Black History:  Special Delivery!!

I WILL SURVIVE

DISABLING THE DRIVE TO “THRIVE”

 Systemic change is UNPOPULAR because it is UNPROFITABLE.

It is difficult to get to the ROOT of the problem when there are systems, institutions, and individuals who profit from the FRUIT of the problem.

Oppression runs largely (but not entirely) unopposed in its pursuit to disable the “THRIVE” reflex of the oppressed.

In fact, there are even instances when the OPPRESSED align with their oppressors; blindly accepting the lie that success can only be achieved by dependency upon the oppressor .

Survival” skills are administered by the oppressor in small yet lethal doses to the OPPRESSED. Immunized and inoculated against THRIVING; survival is equated with success.

Eyes wide-shut, WE seem oblivious to the parade of professionals and programs that THRIVE (at our expense) while we merely SURVIVE.
