Amber thanking Jesus for curl formers

You guys know how suspect social media is, how creepy, that unholy triumvirate of Google, Facebook and Apple are, together with all the bit players and bottom feeders who feed their horrible machine. I have another even creepier in the works, but for now I will tell you about Amber and how she came into my afrocentric life.

Vogue's genocidal proclivities - Part 1

ExhibitD: Benjamin Franklin, "Observations Concerning the Increase of Mankind, Peopling of Countries, etc.", 175

Which leads me to add one Remark: That the Number of purely white People in the World is proportionably very small. All Africa is black or tawny. Asia chiefly tawny. America (exclusive of the new Comers) wholly so. And in Europe, the Spaniards, Italians, French, Russians and Swedes, are generally of what we call a swarthy Complexion; as are the Germans also, the Saxons only excepted, who with the English, make the principal Body of White People on the Face of the Earth. I could wish their Numbers were increased. And while we are, as I may call it, Scouring our Planet, by clearing America of Woods, and so making this Side of our Globe reflect a brighter Light to the Eyes of Inhabitants in Mars or Venus, why should we in the Sight of Superior Beings, darken its People? why increase the Sons of Africa, by Planting them in America, where we have so fair an Opportunity, by excluding all Blacks and Tawneys, of increasing the lovely White and Red? But perhaps I am partial to the Complexion of my Country, for such Kind of Partiality is natural to Mankind.

Daughters of the Stars of Our Planets

This post is about the stories of four girls, young women actually, but I would rather describe them as girls because it was as girls that their lives were hampered. It was as girls their growth, self-awareness, self-exploration was arrested. In having these experiences they are reclaiming their lost childhood, experiencing themselves as God and evolution intended they should. A great deal of our learning and self-discovery comes from our bodies' interaction with nature, not just from social interaction, which in their case has been the source of a lot of unhappiness.

Hodan's Instagram - Best of 2018 (Is she stalking my blog?)

Hodan in a black turban and sweater - cropped to face

Is Hodan reading my blog? Is she? Is she stalking my blog? As soon as I update the blog with Syama's latest, Hodan responds with a stunning photo. You should see the awesome, true, flawless melanin. I swear the woman must be stalking my blog. Does she think I am cheating on her or something?

She must have noticed that I haven't yet created a Hodan - Best of 2018. My bad. I am certain she uploaded it just to make me aware than I haven't finished some 2018 work. I get that and I most abjectly and grovellingly apologize. Here you are my love in all your melanated glory.

Me, My Self and Syama

Montage of face from all three pics

Goddess Heaven!! Just a few days ago Syama uploaded some photos and within one minute, yes within one minute it appeared on my Instagram. One minute!! As in 60 seconds!!

Can you imagine that? I don't know what good deeds I may have performed to merit such good fortune.

These photos are so beautiful I have to save them for posterity. Yes, because people change their minds and hide or delete their very best photos (Hodan knows who I mean). Life has never the same since Syama deleted her Facebook and Mangala-vati trimmed her feed. These photos are enough to keep me in clover for life. Posterity will thank me for appropriating these photos.

Colourism - The Book

This is a book on my thoughts on Colourism and I suppose this is my own foreword to my own book. It isn't a book yet, but I intend to organize it better. I have been thinking of the issue of colourism for quite a while, and I feel that I won't be at peace until I compose my thoughts about it properly. What has bothered me most is the feeling that it is not being tackled the right way, that most of the people discussing are not proceeding from the viewpoint of reforming society.

Angie Stone and the O'Jays

Angie StoneThe O'JaysI was searching for something and I saw a thumbnail with a beautiful sister, and asked myself "Who is this sister, and why I haven't heard or seen her before?" It turns out it was Angie Stone in a song called Wish I Didn't Miss You, not that I knew her before that, but because I didn't know about her music but I had heard her name before in relation to an assault charge brought against her by her daughter

The Holy Roman Emperor, His Daughter-in-Law, and their Soudanese Descendants

I am not sure what to title this post. The original title I had in mind was Maria Dorothea of Württemberg, Archduchess of Austria, and her Soudanese Descendants. (note the Soudanese, sheer pretension), but when I saw the resemblance Junior bore to Leopold Snr. I had to include the Holy Roman Emperor as well. You know Leopold has always been my main man. I have a pic of an interesting tapestry of his grandfather Leopold I lost somewhere in the junk I have around me. Hopefully I will find it and display it to you one of these days. Now I don't know whether the title should be The Holy Roman Emperor, His Daughter-in-Law, and their Soudanese Descendants or Leopold, Maria Dorothea and their Sudanese Descendants, but you will know when you are reading this.
