America’s most wanted slaves
Dare we not forget the solemnly shameful, yet strangely glorious past of American history, when Africans were stolen from their homes, stripped of their languages, religions, cultures, and families; when countless ancestors perished over the Atlantic in the bowels of grand ships, locked in chains and human waste; when Black people were bought, sold and traded.
Genetically (and biologically) modified man
You can live forever. Well, maybe not today, but in just a few short years you could possibly dodge death, never age a day more, retain that youthful, heavenly skin, and watch your children’s children’s children grow up into their prime. Yes, perhaps in this lifetime, you could live forever.
World AIDS Day is Dec. 1, and on that Wednesday, organizations, HIV/AIDS research supporters, and activists will rally in the name of safe sex and virus awareness. HIV/AIDS is epidemic among Blacks globally and has taken on a monstrous face that is killing us at an alarming rate.
Gypsy Haunt: The Dark Side of Italy
Circulating out there on social media is the video clip above of an Italian dignitary shaking the hands of children in a courtyard. But she skips over the only Black girl. The mayor continues shaking everyone else’s hand until the video’s completion. Immediately it reminded me of my experience in Italy.
I took a trip to Italy not too long ago, mostly because a few family members were living there. My cousin spoke highly of the Italian culture, praising the food, wine and his experience before I arrived. He even raved that Italians “love them some Black women.”
He was right! The food and wine were more than my tastebuds had ever experienced. I thought I was a devout New York pizza lover until I bit into a whole pie from Pizzeria Da Alice, a restaurant in the small town of Ferrara in Northern Italy. The flavors were full, fresh and pure. The wine was intoxicating and slightly addictive. The architecture was immaculate, which made for great selfie backdrops.
Essence Music Festival Wrap Up: Day 3
It just keeps getting better and better!
The 2012 Essence Music Festival down in New Orleans (you gotta say it with a lazy tongue and make it one word), where the po’ boys are hot and the gumbo is fresh, has really been a blast. There’s so much activity and still another day to come.
Lupe Fiasco is such a breath of fresh air.
The brotha broke down during an interview with Sway on MTV’s “RapFix Live” when they journeyed back in time to the streets of Chicago where the rapper grew up.
