The problem with Black people is that most of us want to be accepted by whites.

This is why when they recognize us for one inch or at least do something good for us, we are quick to celebrate. If Blacks could just focus on themselves and not worry about being in tune with whites, our mission to be a unified and advanced race will be a step closer. But how can you focus on yourself when you are too busy trying to be accepted by people who do not like you?Image result for african art

This is what I like about the Asians. The Asians were not accepted by whites but did they spend time begging for acceptances through marches, rallies, etc? No! They focused on themselves. This is why the Asians own a plethora in American society.  A plethora such as towns that are equipped with banks and businesses Blacks patronize the most.

Asians were not allowed to naturalize or gain citizenship until the 1940s. How do Blacks allow a group of people who were just as hated as them, become more successful in a country that never like the both of them. It is that begging and want to sing Khumbaya mentality that has kept us behind. The white people did not like Asians but the Asians were like fuck yall and went their way. Whites do not like Blacks, what do we do? Cry, march, and wait until the next time whites will recognize us such as the moment they put Tubman on money, or people like Misty Copeland moving up.

Do not get me wrong. All of the marching in the sixties bought us rights, but this is a new era. We have rights and freedom now. So to continue to beg and focus on acceptance is a waste of went down in sixties. Use that privilege our people obtained to do better. Stop begging and for once do what the Asians did which is fight white supremacy through economics and ethnic unity.

5 Most Powerful African Queens From History

5 Most Powerful African Queens From History

Women have be considered the weaker gender in Africa, but our historic records prove and show strong women who rose to power and greater heights than most male leaders.

To take you through what the African history holds on women, Here is a list of 5 Most Powerful African Queens From History

1. Yaa Asantewa, Ashanti kingdom, Ghana

Yaa Asantewa. 5 Most Powerful African Queens From History

known as the woman who fearlessly fought against British colonialists to her exile. The speech she last gave to the chiefs who were about to chicken out from the war against colonists is what inspired several men to go ahead and fight against the British for the release of their king: King Prempeh who had been captured by the British. Queen Asantewa, together with other warriors, managed to keep the British army at fort but were eventually captured and exiled. Historically, Yaa Asantewa is credited as the last woman to ever lead a major war against the colonists;thus, her name will forever be remembered throughout the African history.

2. Nefertiti, Queen of Ancient Kemet from 1292 BC to 1225 BC

Acknowledged as the queen who brought the war between the lower Kemet and the upper Kemet to an end when she decided to defy their indifference’s by marring Ramses II the Pharaoh of the lower Egypt as per the time. And up to date, there are several monuments of their epic love affair in Abu Simbel. Historians also believe that she was the eldest daughter to Amenhotep III, and that she played an active role in reshaping ancient Egyptian civilization.

Queen Nefertiti has been placed above all the other Egyptian queens. As a result, her name is enclosed in the Egyptian royal Cartouche. In addition, there are several statues and drawings that honor her in Egypt. There are also several folk songs and tales that talk about her and King Akhenaten, or Ramses II, and how they faced a tough resistance from the priests of that time, but eventually won.

3. Aminatu, The Queen of Zaria, Nigeria, in the 15th century

Aminatu, commonly known as Amina, was a great Hausa warrior who later became the queen of Zazzau; apparently known as Zaria. As a grand-daughter to king Sarkin, Amina was the apparent heir of the throne after Bakwa of Turunku (the king’s wife and the mother to Amina). Contrary to how her mother used to rule the Zazzau kingdom, Amina chose to be a warrior and eventually became one of the greatest warriors of the Zazzau kingdom. And when her mother died, the kingdom was passed to Karama–the queen’s younger brother–who ruled for 10 years. That’s how Amina, after Karama’s death, then became the queen of Zazzau.

 She ruled for 34 years and continued to be an active warrior until her death. History has is that she conducted her first military-expedition 3 months after she stepped into power. This, in turn, helped her to hold her power into place for another 34 years, which again saw to it that she had expanded the Zazzau kingdom into one of the greatest domains of that time. But her main focus was not entirely based on annexing lands from her neighboring communities; instead, she fought hard to grant the Hausa traders of that time a safe passage through the Kingdoms. She is also acclaimed for being the ruler behind the fortified city walls–a common characteristic of Hausa states.

4. Makeda, The Queen of Sheba, 960 BC

Apart of being the subject of one of the most recited bible verses or an inevitable subject of the present time history, Makeda’s achievements and her great kingdom will forever be hailed by several generations yet to come. The most interesting story of this great African leader is when she met with the biblical King Solomon. In fact, she’s biblically described as the epitome of beauty and power, and has a series of other remarkable achievements recorded in the Glory-of-Kings and the Kebar Nagast.

During the reign of Makeda, Ethiopia was considered to be second after Egypt as far as power and fame was concerned. This made several kingdoms to be fascinated by how this female ruler could make such a small kingdom to be one of the most revered kingdoms in the world. This is what made king Solomon to be interested in having a commercial relationship with Sheba. As a result, he decided to invite Queen Makeda to Israel, and the rest is history.

5. Candace, The Empress of Ethiopia, 332 BC

In a bid to conquer the formidable Ancient Egyptian kingdom, Alexander had to first invade Ethiopia in 332 BC. But his army could not go past Ethiopia since it was being commanded by one of the most dreaded generals of that time, Empress Candace. King Alexander, on seeing this, decided to pull back his army as he could not risk being defeated by this great African Empress. And up to date, historically, Candace is credited as one of the strongest-female military tactician who also had great military commanding skills.

What Black People Still Don’t Understand About Voting

What Black People Still Don’t Understand About Voting

Many know that enslaved Africans were considered three-fifths human by the U.S. Constitution, but not many are aware of how the dehumanization of enslaved Africans set the stage for the institution that is currently used to elect the President and Vice President of the United States of America.

It should be common knowledge that American citizens do not directly elect the President of the United States. Instead, each state is entitled to a number of elected intermediaries, called “electors,” which vary from state to state and are subject to increase or decrease every ten years based on recorded population changes. These electors make up the Electoral College, the institution that determines the next President of our country.

Why do we have these elected delegates instead of our President being selected by popular vote?

Well, it’s an uncomfortable answer, but, like most things in America, the enslavement of Africans had a lot to do with it.What Black People Still Don’t Understand About Voting

While creating the U.S. Constitution, James Madison, known as the “Father of the Constitution,” actually favored a popular vote instead of an electoral vote to elect the President, as did all slave owners. Nearly half of the delegation who wrote the Constitution owned slaves, including Madison who would later become the fourth President of the United States.

But why would slave owners prefer a popular vote instead of an electoral vote?

Representation. Although slave owners considered enslaved Africans property, they also wanted their property to be counted as part of their population to increase their political influence.

Speaking on the consideration of a popular vote, James Madison wrote:

“There was one difficulty however of a serious nature attending an immediate choice by the people. The right of suffrage was much more diffusive in the Northern than the Southern States; and the latter could have no influence in the election on the score of Negroes. The substitution of electors obviated this difficulty and seemed on the whole to be liable to the fewest objections.”

So we don’t have a popular vote because the outnumbered Northern delegates wanted to limit the power of slave owning southern delegates and level the playing field? That’s a good thing right?

Not exactly.

Like most truths, the answer is not always at the surface.

The reason southern delegates did not object to the use of electoral votes is because the Three-Fifths Compromise was agreed upon.

This agreement between southern and northern delegates determined that enslaved Africans would be counted as three fifths human for the purpose of determining a state’s total population “for legislative representation and taxing purposes.” This amended population was then used to determine the number of seats that each state would be entitled to in the House of Representatives for the next decade.

The decision provided southern states with a third more seats in Congress and a third more electoral votes than what they would have been entitled to if enslaved Africans had been ignored all together. Although slave owners walked away with a bigger piece of the pie, the compromise did at least limit the amount of representatives southern states would have been entitled to if the number of enslaved Africans had been counted as whole persons.

This decision allowed slaveholder interests to dominate the United States government from its inception until the 1900s. Even after the Three-Fifths Compromise was annulled and enslaved Africans were recognized as human beings and not property with the 13th Amendment in 1865, slave owning states still came out on top due to the fact that recognizing Africans as whole persons instead of three-fifths human increased southern population and provided southern delegates with an even bigger representation in the U.S. government.

The Great Migration, in which so-called African Americans moved from the South between 1916-1970, served to greatly impact the Electoral College by increasing the population in Western, Midwestern and Northern states who largely opposed slavery. They still, however, did not believe that black men should be equal to white men. This is a belief still characterized in America today, made evident by wealth, employment, education and incarceration disparities.

An Electoral College determines the President of the United States because the dehumanization of Africans served to further the political agenda of slave owning Europeans. When people say everything is not about race, it’s learned ignorance. To borrow from Mizzou: “This country was built on my b(l)ack.”  Nothing within its body was created for the full equality of black men and women. When you cast your vote, remember that. We are no longer physically enslaved, but nor are we any closer to full equality. That truth has persisted intensely in the face of our democracy regardless of our leader being  Democrat or Republican, yet still we allow ourselves to concede to the idea that one is for us while the other is against us. Dear black people, both are against you

10 Facts You May Not Know about the TV Show, “Good Times”

10 Facts You May Not Know about the TV Show, “Good Times”

10 Facts You May Not Know about the TV Show, “Good Times”

Good Times was that show that all of us knew better than we know our own relatives.  Most of us can sing the theme song even without knowing all the words, and if I were to walk into a room and say the words “damn, damn, damn!” you would know EXACTLY what scene I was talking about.

But here is a short list of interesting tidbits about the show that you may not know.  We are not sharing this information with you for any reason other than the fact that it’s interesting.  The most notable fact is that the show didn’t start doing poorly until JJ stopped acting like a complete buffoon.  Here’s the rundown….feel free to add your own Good Times-related information to the comment section below:

1) Florida Evans (Esther Rolle) was much older than James Evans (John Amos):  Florida was born in 1920 and James was born in 1939.  So, when show began in 1974, Florida was already 54 years old, married to a 35-year old husband.

2) JJ was an old man too:  JJ, played by Jimmie Walker, was born in 1947, only 8 years later than James.  He was certainly no teenager on the show, being 27-years old when the show released its debut.

3) Willona (played by Ja’net Dubois) was only 2 years older than JJ.  They could have dated each other.

4) Esther Rolle was consistently annoyed that even though the show was created around her, a comedian (Jimmie Walker) was getting all of the attention.

5) The show was created by Michael Evans, who also played Lionel Jefferson on another show you might have heard of.  He based the show on his own childhood.

6) The show was a spinoff of another show, called “Maude,” where Florida was a maid.  They changed the name of her husband in the spinoff.

7) Jay Leno appeared on the show in an episode about STDs, one of the first in the history of television.

8) In her indignation over JJ’s role, Esther said:   “He’s eighteen and he doesn’t work. He can’t read or write. He doesn’t think. The show didn’t start out to be that…Little by little—with the help of the artist, I suppose, because they couldn’t do that to me—they have made J.J. more stupid and enlarged the role. Negative images have been slipped in on us through the character of the oldest child.”

9) When John Amos left the show after failed contract negotiations, he said this about JJ’s character: “The writers would prefer to put a chicken hat on J.J. and have him prance around saying “DY-NO-MITE”, and that way they could waste a few minutes and not have to write meaningful dialogue.”

10) Esther Rolle was convinced to come back during the last season under three conditions:  They would write out the character that she ran off and married after James’ death (since she didn’t think Florida would move on so quickly), they would give her a raise in salary, and JJ would  have more respectable, intelligent roll. Oddly enough, that’s when the show started to tank in the ratings.

Come on people, we’ve got to do better.

In case you don’t know all the lyrics, we pulled them together for you:

GOOD TIMES!
Any time you need a payment!
GOOD TIMES!
Any time you need a friend!
GOOD TIMES!
Any time you’re out from under!
Not gettin’ hassled, not getting hustled!
Keeping your head above water!
Making a way when you can!
Temporary lay-offs!
GOOD TIMES!
Easy Credit rip-offs!
GOOD TIMES!
Scratchin’ and Survivin’
GOOD TIMES!
Hangin’ in a chow line!
GOOD TIMES!
Ain’t we lucky we got ’em?
GOOD TIMES!!!
