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: ”

If ever there was a time to make note of a very important social event… And this
occurs on the upcoming 4th and 5th of November… Black is Back Rally, march and conference in Washington, D.C., has arrived for the 8th year! If you think this is a year to skip out on, I ask you to please reconsider… Things have been escalating for for hundreds of years, but as we clearly see, things are getting even more increasingly out of control regarding hate crimes, racism and this government. So, any glimmer of hope a select few may have believed in should be more than clearly gone now (if it were ever even there.)
In my opinion it is more vital now than ever for social action and unity… SO! Below you will find all the information you need regarding the 8th Annual Black is Back Rally, March & Conference starting November 4th.
Visit the Official Page if you are looking for information regarding travel arrangements and such.
Ask the majority of teens, adults or seniors about the pineal gland, most won’t have a clue what you are talking about…but this 8 year old precious Black child not only knows the answer -deeply- but he knows this and more at such depth most adults would struggle to keep up with him- as the interviewer proves to show… This child is amazing, and note worthy. He should be getting national attention but…
SO, in the video interviewer is taken aback, unnerved and really thrown off by his knowledge and readiness to speak on issues of importance. The child is clearly far more intelligent and advanced than her; this is made blatantly clear when she realizes he is more advanced than herself. She does what most people do when they are intimidated or self conscious; and this beautiful, insightful little boy seems to grow frustrated towards her awkward and embarrassed behaviors. He sets the interviews tone and gets it back on track, real quick and is more the adult than her! He proceeds to educat her on everything from how we can make the world a better place, his stance on guns and video games, and spiritually, he speaks of the pineal gland (our third eye) in great depth.
Clearly, this brilliant little boy is not the average 8 year old and remember; he is the future. With that said, he gives me a little bit of hope towards the future. Thus I share his video, which is well worth your time as it was mine. Seeing such an exceptionally intelligent and intuitive child of only 8 years can only make one wonder what his future holds, for it undeniably is something unique and special.
Sharing a bit of good news out… 🙂
by Gerrick Kennedy via latimes.com Dr. Dre has pledged to donate $10 million to help build a performing arts complex at the new Compton High School, the Compton Unified School District. “My goal is to provide kids with the kind of tools and learning they deserve,” Dre said in a statement. “The performing arts center will be […]
I’m a basketball fan but not much for Kobe; however I respect what he is doing!! Inspiring; though he has the money to start where he is, ANY ONE can do it with hard work and passion… Never settle for less, REBUILD Black Wall Street!!!
“Retired basketball sensation Kobe Bryant is doing something commendable with his retirement time and resources. Over the past three years, the star has been building a $100 million venture capital fund. Speaking on Monday, he said investing is one of the things he’s been very passionate about, and that’s why he made a decision to pursue it.”
The 38-year-old former shooting guard co-founded the fund, Bryant Stibel, in 2013 with the current vice chairman of Dun & Bradstreet, Jeff Stibel.
According to Stibel, they opted to wait so that the initiative could only be unveiled if had been given a strong foundation.
“We wanted our body of work, and the entrepreneurs and companies, to stand for themselves,” Stibel told CNNMoney. “We wanted to prove that this was something that had substance and depth.”
He’s planning to invest in different fields, including technology, media and data companies, especially those that lean towards sports and wellness.
* I love this! Gonna give this daily prompt a shot 😀 ->>
I write more so for my own enjoyment than to gain readers, I believe which is probably a fault. The articles I post or write are so vital to me, but at the same time, I can’t water down my anger and outrage over certain issues anymore than I can sugar-coat my strong feelings for women’s rights and my hatred for racism. With that said… I suppose it is my personal space above all else because I say what I want to say, I don’t expect anyone to read it but I am so honored and thrilled when people do… I also love meeting like minds.
The line of it being *my* personal space, however, as opposed to an interactive debate forum is pretty much said in that sentence… I don’t really debate on my page as I feel they can go and write their own post disagreeing on their page. There is a reason for this, and the reason is while I don’t mind healthy debate, I actually enjoy it; I can’t stand hatred and mindless comments.
If we disagree that’s fine, that’s how life is. But I don’t tolerate hateful comments or comments that would hurt other people who read my blog and may be in some way hurt by what is said. Generally I don’t respond to hateful words but I have my weak moments.
I am a very opinionated person, so it is very hard for me to keep my site “attractive” to readers. The things I write about are very touchy subjects, I feel, and I do respect all who come to my page as long as they aren’t there to be mean. I believe our websites/blogs should be a place of self-expression, or in my case, news… News with my opinion all over it. That’s okay; somewhere out there is a page just like mine in idea, but totally the opposite in content. I feel it is a bit intrusive of readers to post hateful, mindless or untrue comments in an attempt to mislead readers or hurt readers (as no matter how mean they are, they no longer hurt me).
So, in sum, as long as disagreement is kept at an adult level and healthy my personal space is open… But the moment they bring negative hate or anything of the like into it…it becomes much like my own personal room and I want to be able to shut them out. Outside of “my world” they can say anything they want in their space, but not in my space… In my space, I can’t tolerate hate when so many of the things I write about bring sadness and tragedy due to mindless, ignorant hate.
There is enough hatefulness in this world, enough judgment. So, unless you can say something productive, on my page, in my “world”, don’t say anything at all because you won’t be approved 😛
Ahhh I loved that ! Must do this more 🙂
