If there is one thing I am not, it is a ‘girly girl’ who enjoys make-up and …all that. I, of course, love eyeliner and mascara, but that isn’t just a look that is a representation of many different things depending on the day/mood…And it is also a tribute to past lives I have not forgotten; as well as a sign of gratitude and a promise to never forget the ancestors who would be so ashamed… We need change;… But I know as we fight forward we also need some positive topics, too, once and again…
And here we are! I think this is so awesome and I had no idea that Target had 1 let alone 22 products that are Black owned! Being a huge supporter of “Buy Black” I will make sure to check it out; and I hope you all will too…
#SOLIDARITY and also, nothing but love and well wishes for those involved ❤
“In the last two years I’ve created countless lists featuring black-owned brands from plus size swimwear to skincare, but the response to these listings is always sort of so-so. Folks share the lists, but do they shop? I’m not so sure. Perhaps the reasoning for not Buying Black is due to accessibility. Most online based-businesses have a final sale policy, which can dissuade potential customers. Thankfully, Target is home to 22 Black-owned cosmetics brands, with new ones cropping up all the time. That’s right, now we have the option of buying Black right at our neighborhood Target stores, giving shoppers the option of easily returning products that may not work for them.
Check out this list of 22 Black-owned Beauty Brands sold at Target: ”
**update by original poster: the missing teen has been found and is well, safe with her family…. Blessings to all who assisted ❤ – 10/24/17
Urgent repost of article regarding a missing 14 year old girl in Las Vegas who may be with another girl, who is identified as a “chronic runaway”-please repost and share or contact her cousin at the email Article Begins Below:
Fourteen year old Selina Brandon has been missing since Friday morning in Las Vegas. Selina has special needs and requires medicaion that she has been without for two days. Her family is desperate to find her.
Selina is 5’9” with long box braids and had on a floral shirt and blue jeans.She boarded her school bus at 7 a.m. and made it to the campus of Shadow Ridge High School in the northwest part of the city, but never made it to class. She was last seen at around 9 a.m. Friday morning leaving the campus of Shadow Ridge.
Selina is believed to be in the company of another teen by the name of Maggie, who is a known, chronic runaway.
Although Selina is 14, she functions on about an 11-year-old level.She likely does not understand the seriousness or gravity of what is happening right now.
This is the hardest and most personal post I have ever had to write. Selina is the only daughter of my first cousin, Shane Brandon. Listening to him choke up as he told me what was going on yesterday morning gutted me. I have never seen him so broken.
My family is asking for everyone’s help. If you see Selina or Maggie, please let me know right away. You can email me at my work email, firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are not asking anyone to approach either of the two girls. That could simply put them in even more danger, or prompt them to run again, further delaying Selina’s safe return home.
Please just contact me or even the Las Vegas Metro Police and let them know that you have information on the whereabouts of Selina Brandon. The number to the LVMPD Missing Persons Detail is 702-828-2907.
Selina was last seen with this girl, Maggie. This first post is from a previous time that Maggie ran away, but shows a good detail of her face.
This hit me hard; due to the horrific nature of what this girl went through, due to the lack of attention or concern at least from what I saw… Maybe because I was getting alerts while she was still alive & feel I should have been able to do more than tweet and share random stupid posts about what was going on.
The search for the Lancaster girl, who was the subject of an Amber Alert, came to a heartbreaking conclusion. Her body was discovered inside an east Oak Cliff home late Saturday night.
Shavon Randle, 13 year old Black female… Her body was found along with her 19 year old kidnapper. She was being held ransom over drugs. As stated by local reporters:
” Perkins girlfriend is identified as Ledoris Randle, a relative of Shavon. Randle told police that she received a call at 10:30 a.m. on Wednesday from a private number and the voice on the other end said they had Shavon and warned if she called the police, the 7th grader would be killed.
The arrest affidavit says a co-worker of Ledoris Randle confided to her that one of the men that had the narcotics stolen was Fields and that “Fields has history with kidnapping people.”
An anonymous informant told the FBI the a male she knew advised “he was going to kidnap a child to get his narcotics back”, according to the affidavit. The male is identified as Owens. “
Why would anyone involve a child…!? I know this happens far too often; innocent kids victim of stray bullets or other horrors they shouldn’t be anywhere close to. And that’s sickening but they targeted and picked this child all over… drugs? I don’t know what to say other than…
May your new journey, Shavon Randle, be peaceful and full of love… you deserve no less…
“…believe this child to be in grave or immediate danger.”
This is an emergency; as we know Black women -including innocent children!!!; For some unknown sick reason!- won’t make national news or state news even in this case… Remember the D.C. girls? That wasn’t an isolated case….
In any case, on my iPhone my “system alert” for the Amber Alert system has been going off a lot; usually it goes off and never comes back on but this sweet little girl must be in serious fear and harm as it’s gone off at least 3-4 times. The alert even popped up on my email so… please share….!!!! And if you are in Texas, please keep your eyes open, or send to anyone you know in Texas….
What if this was your precious child? Your baby girl? … Gods can only imagine….

My rant about the all too common act of missing Black females, Black people in general if you get into the details and history… But you’d think if this was anyone else, these kids would be all over national “media”, they would have breaking news never-ending until every last victim and their abductor is located…but with there being so many vanishing in the same approximate time period one would think they would have at least some common decency and treat this case as they would any case of blond, blue eyed girls that were missing. But no….Not even at this large number all vanishing so suddenly…, all from around the same general area…. Not even now will they act as they should. This is happening all too often and I’m going to be talking about the history or some history in America regarding the mistreatment of Black people that for the most part is never spoke of or acknowledged. The trend sadly continues it seems but we all can unite and no longer do we form the minority………..
This is an update on the case of a young, Black teenage female being turned over and dropped out of her chair, drug across the floor and arrested; violating the department’s policy as well as his oath as a cop. I don’t need to add this happened because he knew he could get away with it because the teenage girl is Black. That is sick, sad and heartbreaking as well as enraging but it is true. If this happened to a blonde, blue eyed white girl the entire situation would have gone down differently, she would have just been acting her age and I don’t believe the cops would have ever been called. But I digress, now that you know my personal view on that I want to talk about what the U.S. Justice Department decided after 2 years of apparent searching for a way out.
The lengths America’s government will go to in order to ensure police don’t go to jail or receive any punishment is absolutely astounding. They are allowed to use the stupidest excuses; and this one took 2 years for them to find- you’d think they’d have come up with a better “loophole” than they did.What’s especially surprising in this case from 2015 is the 2 years it took for the U.S. Justice Department to come up with such a flimsy excuse for a cops abuse.
After 2 years the prosecution realized suddenly, hey, this case isn’t in our jurisdiction because it was a mistake not an intentional violation of civil rights! Yeah, let that soak in. Let’s explore that and go a bit deeper.
A cell phone & a teenage girl refuses to give up her cell phone, then she refuses to get out of her seat, after school officials allegedly, “plead” with her to get up -allegedly. I just want to add, she was a teen acting as many of us would have, too. Imagine her your child. I can say had I had a cell phone in school I would have behaved similarly. I note this because teenagers are teenagers…she did no wrong and anyone who thinks that way doesn’t belong on my page.
Additionally, the teenage female was also accused of “verbally challenging” an officer; all she did was tell him what he was doing was wrong, I might add. It finally led to the cop saying she hit him, but the aprox 15 witnesses say as she was being drug across the room she was throwing her arms about. I would assume she was trying to gain balance or her grounding, I don’t know nor does it matter as it would be terrifying to be flipped out of your chair by a cop, then drug across the floor violently.

This brave, Black woman has decided to step out and share her experience of being denied housing from the oh so generous & loving Trump family.
“It was 52 years ago. My friend and I applied for an apartment in the Wilshire in Queens, New York, and we were both told that there were no vacancies. I realized that there were vacancies, because they still had the ads running, and I was pretty sure it was because of the color of our skin. I have always felt that the Trump Organization was biased. And I will go to my grave with that thought.” (See link below)
Many people have claimed when a Black person would attempt to obtain housing, higher rent and other negatives whites didn’t face. For those who only believe what they can see, there was an undercover study done with whites going to look at a place followed
immediately by a Black person. And sadly, it was further proven to be true. Sometimes agents even have gone so far as to say there were no vacancies despite when only a few minutes prior they had enough space.
Donald Trump is all hate & deception. If he gets in power nothing good will come from it, only evil. Look at all the extreme and previously in the shadow racists he has awoken. I’m not sure which is worse; him or his insane supporters.
I admire all the strong women who have lost a child and are now standing up and trying to change how this sick world is; but somehow from the moment I first listened to Tamir Rice’s mother, Samaria Rice, speak I felt an especially deep admiration and respect for her. That has only grown tonight.
First, I didn’t watch either of the conventions. Donald Trump is a psychopath and truly cruel while Hillary Clinton brings us nothing more than the same lies, political mask and deception that is so common place for a politician. And while I am happy to read that some of the women who make up the Mothers of the Movement attended and shared their stories, pleading for justice and change… That they walked to the stage to cheers of Black Lives Matter is the little extra that would have sent chills down my spine from the power of their words, their energy and purpose, collected together. But I digress.
One of the mothers said Hillary would say and stand with Black Lives Matter. In fact, the title of the article I read first was something along the lines of, “Hillary Sits and Listens to Mothers who’ve lost a child to police racism” or something. It was totally misleading to start; I had no idea at that point it was just a speech at the DNC; secondly, Hillary can talk all she wants or ‘listen’ but someone sincere; wouldn’t they listen one on one and in private? Wouldn’t it be on their top priorities and a topic always made clear?
I was disappointed to hear some of the mothers say that they believe Hillary cares. I think she does more than Trump, but her care is a fake sort; it’s time for something better for this country so we may change and become that great country people talk about; the one we’ve NEVER been.
While it made me sad to hear a few of those women supporting and trusting Hillary with this cause; Samaria Rice came through for me… Notice her missing from the group? She didn’t attend for she doesn’t endorse either; there hasn’t been a candidate that she supports… Because she wants change and for Black Lives to TRULY MATTER and she wants it -rightfully so!!!- now… As I do; as we all do…
In the following video she speaks a bit on Tamir’s death; but also on her thoughts of Trump and Hillary… Check it out below:
” No candidate is “speaking my language about police reform,” Samaria Rice recently told Fusion, saying she wants “a lot on the table, not a little bit of talk, a lot of talk about police brutality, police accountability, making new policies, taking some away, and just reforming the whole system.”
Rice added that no presidential candidate appeals to her yet. “
The following is a poem written by a successful husband and father; a lawyer, journalist as well as having the honor to be there when the NAACP was founded, becoming one of the first people to join. A.J. Smitherson is his name, a name -among many others- that should be known to all, yet the history books somehow managed to add this bit of American history. Wonder why. 🙄
Mr. Smitherson did survive the attack on the successful Black community, thankfully, however he lost all he had worked for to jealous bigots who wished they could be him, but knew they couldn’t ever accomplish what was being accomplished in Greenwood. Because of the success of him and many, many other Blacks living there, Mr. Smitherson was but one of a countless number of men and women that lost what they had worked so hard for; their lands, businesses, beautiful homes and so forth, to envious racists, during what is called the Tulsa Riots.
Greenwood, OK, or Black Wall Street, was burned and destroyed by these jealous cowards with no souls. The people behind it were nothing but cruel white losers whom felt envy and fear as well as unjustified hate towards the success in the Black community. Why so many whites feared/fear this I don’t understand and probably never will.
Don’t mistake me; I understand the reasons that are obvious among that sort; they didn’t want to see the Black community thriving. But what I do not understand & never will is why this is an issue that upsets them? Black success is human success; we should be happy anytime a community gets together and creates something better than what was, especially at that time.
One day Black “Wallsteet” will rise again and when it does, I know where all my money will be spent shopping. As a child I dedicated my life to fighting hate and racism and I would fight to the end to see this again. Er, by that I mean; I would fight and die happily to see many and more Black Wall Streets pop up all over America, with no chance of pathetic, jealous creatures ripping it apart or burning it down by mindless morons.
Below is a poem written by Mr. A.J. Smitherson after the riots. What a disgraceful, sick and hate filled world this is.
Whence those sounds in all directions
Firearms cracking everywhere;
Men and women all excited,
Cries of rioting fill the air.
Men with guns and ammunition,
Rushing madly to the fray,
Shooting, cursing, laughing, crying,
“Come on, boys, come on this way!”
“They are trying to lynch our comrade,
Without cause in law defi;
Get your guns and help defend him;
Let’s protect him, win or die.
‘Twas the cry of Negro manhood,
Rallying to the cause of right,
Readying to suppress the lawless,
Anxious for a chance to fight.
So they marched against the mobbists
Gathered now about the jail,
While the sheriff stood there pleading,
Law and order to prevail.
Thus responding to their duty,
Like true soldiers that they were,
Black men face the lawless white men
Under duty’s urgent spur.
Cries of “Let us have the nigger”
“Lynch him, kill him” came the shout,
And at once there came an answer
When a sharp report rang out
“Stand back men, there’ll be no lynching”
Black men cried, and not in fun
Bang! Bang! Bang! three quick shots followed,
And the battle had begun.
In the fusillade that followed,
Four white lynchers kissed the dust,
Many more fell badly wounded,
Victims of their hellish lust.
Quick they fled in all directions,
Panic stricken, filled with fear,
Leaving their intended victim,
As the news spread far and near.
Scattered now in great confusion
Filled with vengeance all anew
Leaders of the lynching party
Planned for something else to do.
“Blacks prevent a Negro’s lynching”
Read a bold newspaper head,
In an extra night edition,
“Fifty Whites reported dead”.
Rallied now with reinforcements
Brave (?) white men five thousand strong
Marched upon the Black defenders
With their usual battle song:
“Get the niggers” was their slogan,
“Kill them, burn them, set the pace.
Let them know that we are white men,
Teach them how to keep their place.
“Forward! March! ! command was given,
And the tread of feet was heard,
Marching on the Colored district,
In protest there came no word.
In the meantime rabid hoodlums
Now turned loose without restraint
Helped themselves to things of value
More than useless to complain.
were taken by the hundreds,
Ammunition all in sight
Reign of murder, theft and plunder
Was the order of the night.
But our boys who learned the lesson
On the blood-stained soil of France,
How to fight on the defensive
Purposed not to take a chance.
Like a flash they came together,
Word was passed along the line:
“No white man must cross the border;
Shoot to kill and shoot in time!”
“Ready, Fire!” and then a volley
From the mob whose skins were white
“Give ’em hell, boys”, cried the leader,
“Soon we’ll put ’em all to flight”.
But they got a warm reception
From black men who had no fear,
Who while fighting they were singing:
“Come on Boys, the Gang’s all here.”
Rapid firing guns were shooting,
Men were falling by the score,
‘Till the white men quite defeated
Sent the word “We want no more.”
Nine p.m. the trouble started,
Two a.m. the thing was done.
And the victory for the black men
Counted almost four to one.
Then the white went into council,
Hoping to reprise their loss,
Planned the massacre that followed,
Dared to win at any cost.
June the First, at five a.m.
Three long whistle blasts were heard,
Giving sign for concert action
To that cold blood-thirsty herd.
At the signal from the whistle
Aeroplanes were seen to fly,
Dropping bombs and high explosives,
Hell was falling from the sky.
On all sides the mob had gathered
