Born Perle Yvonne Watson in Los Angeles on this day in 1932, the future congresswoman…

“Unequal policies such as these have led black girls to feel insecure and humiliated about their physical appearance, and subsequently can affect their ability to learn and feel comfortable in academic environments.” –Teen Vogue
As I spoke of in my first blog post I will be posting essays from a series of research I am collecting regarding numerous ways racism impacts Black children in America. The research came about because 1) I see how children are being treated and am appalled to say the least, 2) I see my family/friends and how their children are impacted, 3) I know this is not an isolated occurrence and yet still is being blatantly ignored. Clearly, the lack of attention concerning Black children and the aspect of racism in daily life being ignored is but one more huge red flag I refuse to ignore and do not understand how others can…

With a groundbreaking 365 strategic approach, we will empower diverse voices, create a unique space for emerging talent through fellowships and developmental mentoring and revolutionize the industry for generations to come.
Introducing the Newark International Film Festival
The 3-day festival will showcase the breadth of the film industry including screenings at a number of cultural anchor institutions and outdoor screenings (weather permitting), stunt exhibitions, pitch opportunities and auditions for TV and film, acting, directing, producing and crowd funding workshops, and much more.

If anyone doubted racism in the system, this alone would awaken them; granted they wanted to be woke and were ready to face truth. There is no surprise these psycho’s would get this low; especially when their leader is a white extremist calling himself “president.”
Using the tactic of fear through religion, hate, ignorance as well as the legal lies the mainstream media makes available, they further isolate people when it is uniting that we should be doing. Of course they don’t want there to be peace; what do they have to profit from that?
Not to mention this “has been” a functioning operation and a reality in the not so distant past. To be more specific we know during the Cold War era the CIA controlled the media, forcing everything from false stories and reports be given to the American people all the way to subconscious ‘mind control’ via subliminal messages and images through the media, this also includes more blatant messages through television and other forms of media. There is no way the government truly is keeping other agencies under control; especially when you have a psychopath as a so called president.
Not to mention, it has even become legal for the media to lie, and it actually is but more on that next time, we still have the same hate rhetoric being taken in as fact by either the hate filled or gullible people…or maybe they simply don’t care because it isn’t happening ‘to them’… SMH.
And here we are today. No changes except things have gotten a lot worse because too many are still asleep or unaware of the truth that rests before them if only they were to seek it.
As for this operation, during the Cold War unspeakable things happened to far too many people of most backgrounds… With who is sitting in the white house currently I do not believe the order to end Operation Mockingbird (decided at the 1977 hearings) has been or is honored today. Perhaps it gained a new name…sadly that’d really be all they would need to do, especially given most people say and do nothing.
Below is a piece of the story, followed by the link to the full. This needs to be news everyone is aware of so please share…
In one automated phone call heard by two media organizations, a man pretends to be Gillum speaking in stereotypical Black dialect while jungle music plays during the call.
“Well, hello there,” the call begins as the sounds of drums and monkeys can be heard in the background. “I is Andrew Gillum.”
“We Negroes . . . done made mud huts while white folk waste a bunch of time making their home out of wood an’ stone.”
The man promises to pass a law that will allow African-Americans to avoid arrest “if the Negro know fo’ sho’ he didn’t do nothin’.”
These automated calls are designed to promote fear among white voters in Florida and encourage them to support Gillum’s opponent, U.S. Rep. Ron DeSantis, a Republican who has been endorsed by President Donald Trumpand who supports Trump’s political ideology.
The recording ends with a man saying that the robocalls were paid for by the Road to Power, an Idaho-based website and podcast that promotes white supremacist and anti-Semitic content.
The robocalls are a clear indication of how racially incendiary the Florida governor’s race has become heading into the November mid-term elections. The campaign also underscores how Trump’s ongoing racial rhetoric has encouraged white supremacist groups to become more aggressive with promoting racist fear tactics like the robocalls.
DeSantis’ campaign spokesman, Stephen Lawson, called the robocalls “absolutely appalling and disgusting…and hopefully whoever is behind this has to answer for this despicable action.”

I am happy to announce I will soon have course(s) available on www,udemy.com teaching REAL history! My first class will be teaching African history. I am so tired of reading how the Greeks founded this or that when Plato himself admitted their knowledge came from Africans. The course layout is not yet set up but as soon as it is I will post it. Another upcoming course is Kemetic / Ancient Egyptian literature, the history of Kemet and the *CORRECT* time lines as well as gods and goddesses, who they are, what they represent and the like.
There will be other courses I teach as well, and if anyone has any suggestions please let me know.
I really hope this is a success; this is my life passion come true if so… We shall soon see, stay tuned!!!!!!!!!
